Sac Anime Summer 2012 Report

So this year, I once again found myself at Sac Anime Summer 2012 for the Labor Day weekend, August 31st to September 2nd of 2012, due to a combination of ‘what if’ style planning and air fares being near on nonexistent. It helped that I really didn’t have much planned that weekend, so off it was to Sacramento.

As before, we didn’t hit up the first day due to a lot of factors, that day was near on totally shot, but not a complete loss, having managed to have dinner with Gensao and meet an old friend from the Navy I’d not seen in well on seven years now. Even so, if I ever do this again, I’ll need to plan that out a little bit better. Like flying directly into Sacramento...that’d have solved a lot of problems.

Anime Expo 2012 Report Up

What's this? I have the report up this early? Again? Am I becoming reliable? Next thing you'll probably be wondering is where the movies are, right? Well...they're actually done, but I need to upload them and such, heh. Still, the report. It's there, and what can I say about the convention? F'n weird is what I can say about it. Perhaps it's a good idea we basically drank the whole time, and I do mean that, we were drinking the whole damn time. I'm reminded of shore leave in the Navy. Come to think of it, in terms of just how much I drank this convention...yeah, that was on par with a typical shore leave without the nightly finale of getting totally hammered.

So what are you waiting for? Check it out and see all the weirdness. If you were there, you can probably sympathize with some of what I noted in that report, I expect. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2012 Report

Huh? What? Oh, right. Time for a report. You'll have to excuse the mess…yeah okay, the beer and various other alcoholic drinks scattered about, but I was at least rather mellow this whole convention. Even when they were doing what AX does best and not speaking to each other. At all. I kinda find it amusing that one has to stay a little bit 'happy' just to get through this convention, and that this year, being AX's 21st birthday, they tried to keep us 'happy' with various places to get alcohol, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

AM^2 2012 Report and Pics Are Up

What? You thought I was just going to wait 'til right before AX? Or even some months after? You take me for that sort of procrastinator?

Yeah, I guess I am one of those actually. But not today, Galvatron! Oh no, for once, I have all my stuff done three days after con! That's right, it's all done! Well...I'll have the movies up in a bit, but they're all transcoded! Praise me! Praise me!

Yeah, okay, I didn't expect that to actually work either. Oh right, you wanted the pics, well here you go, you can find them here on TFA Cosplay. You're probably looking for the report this news item mentioned. Yeah, I can provide that too! I'll be getting the movies up later tonight, so stay tuned for more!

AM^2 2012 Report

AM^2 (pronounced A M Squared), short for Animation, Manga, and Music is a smaller southern California convention currently located in the Anaheim convention center right across from Disneyland that occurred this year from June 15th through June 17th. Given that Anime Expo has abandoned the place (most likely due to their inflexibility concerning scheduling the AX con at any other time than the 4th of July weekend) this is now the perfect spot for several smaller anime and other fandom conventions, such as AM^2.

Anime Central 2012

So, how did you all like that Masquerade?

Too soon? Heh, don't worry. Everyone gets their ass kicked on their 15th birthday. Just ask Fanime.

Anime Conji 2012 Article Now Up

Well, after a little longer than I usually like, I have the Anime Conji 2012 Article now done. In it, you can see my trials and tribulations as I braved entertainment and fun on my quest for cosplay pic and video perfection. Truly a tale worth a ballad or two, assuming you're not busy planning a return trip next year, and I wouldn't blame you if you were. It really was a relaxing lot of fun, as you'll see in the report when you take a gander.

At the very least, I didn't get attacked by bats this time. No, the Batman doesn't count.

Anime Conji 2012 Article

This year was the third year of Anime Conji, and I would classify it as a most successful year all around. As for myself, I was approved for press this time around and it probably worked out for the best as this convention is getting larger and beginning to take note of such things. There were some very notable growing pains I did notice, which I suspect if the same individuals are involved in those projects next year, they will have certainly learned from. All in all, a most enjoyable time; for those of us who weren't able or not willing to make Wondercon going on that same weekend, it was more than satisfying.

Sac Anime Summer 2011 Report Up

After about a month of procrastination, I've finally completed the Sac Anime 2011 report which you can read by clicking ye ol hyperlink.

What can I say about it? It was fun; probably the biggest poster boy for why a small to mid sized convention can be as much, if not more, fun as the larger coventions such as Comic Con and Anime Expo. But hey, why listen to me yapping here, when the meat of my observations is in the report. Enjoy!
