Anime Expo 2010 Report

Holy shit, folks…they actually managed to actually HAVE an Anime Expo despite some of the serious shit that led up to this year's show. For a round up of that situation, I'll repost part of a news item from a few months ago so you can refresh your memory on this bit of drama:

Fanime 2010 Report Up

Could it be? Am I sick? Have I ceased procrastination? Hell if I know, but in any event, the Fanime 2010 Report is up for viewing.

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.

ACEN 2010 Writetup Is Now Up

Wow, I'm getting faster. Maybe I can get the Fanime report out sometime soon too? In any event, here's the Anime Central 2010 Writeup that I've been planning to get done for awhile now.

As it was in the past two years, I've got nothing but good things to say about the convention. If you're ever looking for a good time, this is the place to go (though maybe they should think about adding a day), I guarantee, so I hope I did the experience justice. But don't just take my word for it, click on that link up there and check out my full thoughts on it which includes some news items for those looking for the videos from this year's convention.

Anime Central 2010 Report

It started when I was being driven to the airport in some rent-a-shuttle you booked for a flight at early hours that should be outlawed or at least protested on a weekly basis, while feeling the effects of a cold just starting that I hoped in vain to whatever god I worshiped isn't a cold just starting make that dry scratchy feeling in the back of my throat. Bus driver was blessedly silent as I alternated between staying awake, silent religious supplication, and waiting for the drugs I took before I boarded to kick in. There's also this vague nagging suspicion that in my haste to get everything together, coupled with the pain I'm presently feeling, that I forgot something maddeningly important. Quick mental checks are not possible; haven't had anyone hit my turbo button yet by mainlining me with a Monster energy drink or even some of the finest brewed Columbian lighter fluid. What items I have high pri on my list, that which makes what I do possible at conventions; I do manage to confirm are in my possession before hitting San Diego International.

Anime Conji First Year's Report

Well, as promised, the report for the first, and from all reports, now annual convention, Anime Conji, is now up here on Dragon's Anime.

This is the first anime convention for sunny San Diego, and for its first year, I can honestly say I had a decent time, and can well recommend attending to anyone. Though it may be cheaper to bring your own beer...I'll have to look into that next year.

Anime Conji Report 2010

I first learned about Anime Conji back when I attended PMX with Aisu a few months ago. A San Diego anime convention was something that a few of us had been discussing in various forums, but actually putting it on ourselves seemed to me to be rather…too much like work, heh. So here was a guy passing out flyers for the first, and hopefully annual, anime convention for San Diego here at PMX. For those that are wondering, Pacific Media Expo is the convention that was started by Mike Tatsugawa after the management dispute of Anime Expo '04 and takes place in Los Angeles, California. At the time, like a complete dumbass, I took the flyer and forgot about it. It wasn't until a couple weeks before the convention that I saw a message on Facebook from Traci Hines who noted she'd be going there to put on a small concert with a few others. Smacking myself in the head, I immediately started the work I'd need in order to attend the convention. Given Anime Expo's recent issues, and likely decline, not to mention the problems we've occasionally had with some of their floor personnel over the years, another nearby convention to go to seems like something that would be best to cultivate if at all possible.

Anime Expo 2009 Article

We're not dead yet, but we're working on it real good, heh. Finally, though, the last of the reports is done. I sumbit for your approval, or not, the Anime Expo 2009 Report where I put to parchment the many trials and tribulations suffered and enjoyed this particular Anime Expo.

Anime Expo 2009 Report

Anime Expo. Fuck, what a year this was. I mean, of all the strange, outright and utterly weird ass shit that went down; things that happened that didn't need to happen; things that didn't happen that probably should have; and the painfully obvious fact that this year AX was strapped for cash. Hell, I could go on, and I will momentarily, but the overall theme of this year was me leaving the place with a "What the fuck was that?!" attitude.

Fanime 2009's Article

Well, it's that time again. Almost done with all the convention stuff. Here we have Fanime 2009's report. In this particular report I take a different approach to writing in rather than detailing my day by day activities, I talk more about the convention in general as I saw it.

I hope you find this both entertaining and informative.
