Anime Conji 2014 Report

Anime Conji 2014.

I'll admit, I'm not entirely sure what to say about this one. Not because it was bad, per se, but because a lot of what was done wasn't really tried before at your standard anime convention. Also, I wound up keeping a promise to myself that I'd go and sit in on some panels. So a double whammy for unusual conventions as a personal experience.

Sac Anime Summer 2013 Report Up

And finally, I get the Sac Anime Summer 2013 report done. With the small convention mentality, but the larger growing numbers, this one is at what many would term the sweet spot for pure enjoyment. I had a good time anyway, but why take just my statement here at face value? Check out my report for more detail.

Sac Anime Summer 2013 Report

Hmm…Sac Anime.

Third year I’ve been to this convention, and the first at their new location of the Sacramento Convention Center. It’s a far larger location situated in downtown Sacramento, and surrounded by all the amenities of a down town area, such as hotels, quickie marts, and food…though that last one wasn’t as important this year as I’ll describe in a bit.

As has oddly become custom, though differently arriving in this case, I wound up flying in on Friday, Day 1. Original plan was to take the train, but I’m not spending thirteen fucking hours in transit when I could drive there in eight. Wound up taking Super Shuttle to the Quality Inn situated about a block away from the convention center down town, where Mayhem and co were already set up.

Anime Expo 2013 Report Now Up

Well folks, it's been a long time coming, but I finally have the Anime Expo 2013 report available.

What's to summarize about this one? How about this is one of the best Anime Expos in recent memory, and probably the best convention I've been to for several years. Was it the best AX ever? Well, check the report and judge for yourself. As for me, let it just be said, I was most entertained and I got what I wanted and then some out of it. If not the best, it was certainly successful.

Fanime 2013 Report From Hell Up

Report from Hell or covention from Hell? Nah, Anime Expo 2007 still holds the record for being THE CONVENTION FROM HELL! So, given that, was it all bad? No. Was it incredible and awesome? Not hardly. Still, bluntly put, they do too many more of these, and they'll bury Fanime. Read on to see what I mean.

Fanime 2013 Report

So...how about those lines? What, too soon? Shit, I've been putting off this report for a while, I figured...y'know...maybe we could have all...yeah, who am I kidding?

If you weren't at Fanime 2013 you MIGHT be wondering what I'm on about. Honestly...shit, we'll just start this by getting it out of the way right now. Fanime 2013 was a much nicer version of Anime Expo 2007. Yes, I went there. I mean, really, there's just no other way to describe this year's Fanime. It was a mess of long lines, crowded areas, and technical difficulties that would have made the place an absolute Hell to be at had ALL (there was one notable incident I'll describe later) the convention and grounds staff been as dysfunctional and downright evil as the ones that were at AX 2007. Fortunately this was not the case, so we should probably count our blessings, because that would have been the spark of that would have set off all sorts of fun fires.

Well, only a little bit late this time around. At least I got it done before ACEN and Fanime. Still, for those that wish to know what went down concerning Anime Conji 2013, just head over to the report and check it out. Some say that it's not a convention unless you feel happy, in pain, with the life drained out of you. I personally prefer a succubus to do that for me, so I find welcome relief when I go to a convention where I just get the happy part.

Concerning ACEN, so long as their policy that they own all rights to every event, and nothing can be recorded or used without their say or how they specify (which is currently that one can only cut it into a highlight advertisment clip), then I will not work for them in any capacity. I'll attend because family and friends are in the area, and even despite that, it's a fun time. Concerning press or any further recording or work? They've put paid to that notion for the forseeable future...which is a damn shame. It used to be a cooperation, but now? They own it all, and your fun time exists only because they say it does and how they say it does.

Anime Conji 2013

Ah, Anime Conji...good times. Anime Conji is currently the only purely anime convention here in San Diego and this was its fourth year running. This was also the third year at the Town and Country Hotel and the second for using its convention center; the first year being spent at the Double Tree hotel, and crowded that poor place out. So far, the Town and Country has provided plenty of room for the convention and its attendees; in fact this year I would go so far as to say it was almost too much room.

Sac Anime Summer 2012 Report Up

And a little over a month later, I'm finally getting this report up. Yes, I appear to be slipping once again. I require a mistress to keep me in line. Tall(er), thin, good looking and looks good in leather and high heels, and a willingness to use said heels on my spine...that sort of thing. Some of the previous is negotiable. Doesn't have to be taller than me, for example. Oh right, the report, I'm getting to that. You can find it here on Dragon's Anime, along with various other odd bits that define what insanity is and is a great place to meet the old one of your dreams. I'm also lying about some of that. Or am I? Can't really tell anymore, it's all getting hazy and indistinct. Like reality itself is coming undone.

In that mini report you'll find movies, pictures, and some general anecdotes from what is a pretty decent little convention. Perhaps also a succubus to devour your soul, should you prove fortunate. In any event, have fun, and try not to poke the Platinum Dragon. He's cranky when he wakes up. >_>
