Anime Expo and AM2 2011 Report Now Up

After a month of fighting with technology, getting up movies and pictures, and generally making a mess of things, I finally have the report up for Anime Expo and AM2 up.

Much was done this year, and much wasn't done that I really smack myself for not doing. These are the many things I will need to consider, but in the mean time, check out all the fun stuff that went on.

We're not done yet with all the pics, movies, and reports, but this is one of the biggest hurdles cleared so far. We'll be putting everything up as it becomes available, so stay tuned!

Anime Expo and AM2 2011 Report

Anime Expo 2011 and AM2

Before I begin, I would like to note that I'm combining the two convention reports due to the fact that they occurred at the same time, but I was unable to attend more than a day at AM2 (that '2' is for 'squared') due to the Hatsune Miku concert. Therefore, there's really not as much to AM2 as I would have if I attended the entire time. So what I covered at AM2 will be included in this report, but will have its own distinct section.

Oh, where to begin. Well first, the TFA Cosplay is now up and fully operational, so go over there and check out the pics from AM2 and Anime Expo 2011. As always, if you're one of the cosplayers and want a raw and/or unedited JPG version of the pics in question, send me a message and I'll make it available.

It appears during the recent data migration of the TFA Cosplay webhost, none of the required applications, such as unzip or imagemagick were installed on the new host. The gallery requires some of these features to display itself properly, which is why none of the thumbnails are currently up. I actually have Anime Expo 2011′s pictures processed and uploaded, but until the required applications are installed, the gallery is going to be running in a half assed mode.

Hopefully this will not take too long. More info as it comes.

Update - Also have AM2's pics uploaded as well.

Fanime 2011 Report Now Up

Well my fine feathered friends, we have for you today, a romp around the Fanime convention of 2011 in the form of a news report by yours truly.

Great and terrible deeds were performed this time around, as we watch Fanime break the 20k attendee mark, while having to deal with Industry and Venue meddling at the same time they're trying to remain a convention by the fans for the fans. Fun was still had, but much was done that makes one question how long they can pull it off at their current venue and them becoming quite noticeable by pretty much everyone now. But you don't need me talking your ear off here. Click the link above and check it out for yourself.

Fanime 2011 Report

Fanime…Fanime…Fanime…. Tsk, tsk, tsk, people, I warned you guys last year about what would happen with lack of planning and communications. With a jump to the above 20,000 attendees mark, you're now looking at a volatile combination that's primed to explode even worse than the massive screw up of this year. And though massive, it was only in the REALLY annoying to slightly detrimental category, and not a supreme fuck up like say, Anime Expo 2007.

Anime Conji 2011 Pics Are Up

Well, spent two days at Anime Conji and acquired some great pics and some good video, which I'll get that up as soon as I can. Fun convention, and I wish I could have stayed for the full three days, but just coming off a really large evolution at work, there were things that needed to be done in the old personal life, up to and including real sleep, heh. So without further ado, go ahead and just click here to go directly there.

As always if you're one of the cosplayers and want a full size and/or raw version, email me, and I'll make them available.

Mayhem's SAC Anime Winter 2011 Pics Are Up

I'm actually thinking of putting the pics in categories either separated by convention, by photographer, or both. Not sure yet how I'd do both, but I'll do some research into that. Also thinking of changing the domain, but I've been considering that for years now. We'll see how that goes.

However, for today's offerings, we have Mayhem's SAC Anime Pics for Winter 2011 up for viewing which you can get to by clicking here. I'd say more about it, but I'll let Mayhem do that when we post his report here on Dragon's Anime.

As always, if you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger and/or raw version of the pic you see here, just make us aware of it, and we'll make it available. Have fun!

Anime Expo 2010 Pics Are Up

Someone had the bright idea to release a kick ass Transformers game (which I need to get a review done for) and a Dragon Quest game recently. I must find these people and both thank them profusely and beat them to death, because I have work to do, damnit!

On the subject of work, I've finally processed the nearly 400 pics I took for Anime Expo 2010. Head on over toTenchifanart for the pics. And now I have to go and see about so much much more...oh Lord what did I do to deserve this? Oh, right, I volunteered.

Fanime 2010 Report

Oh Fanime, why do you happen so close to ACEN to torment me so?

Fanime is supposed to be the chill out convention, the one where you just hang loose, go do stuff, and typically have a restful and fun time. This was not the case this year, and I think it started when Mayhem suggested we go to the Black and White Ball. I readily agreed, not exactly enjoying the sausage feast of the adult only dance of last year. This, of course, would necessitate a certain amount of preparation both before (in the form of getting my suit together) and during the convention (in the form of dance lessons). Sounds like a fun way to break up the con a bit.
