Fanime 2008 Report Day 2

Well, working through the Fanime Report. Day two is the day that most of the fun stuff happened, so it's by far the longest part of the report. Hopefully I'll get Days three through four done early next week and start on the Anime Expo Report...and have that finished by the end of September.

Only a couple months late...really, not so bad.

Questions and concerns can be posted on the forums. CLOSED

Have fun!

Fanime 2008 Report Day 1

Been hitting Neverwinter 2 pretty hard. That'll probably be my first video game review when I get done with the blasted game. In any event, here's the Fanime Day 1 report for your viewing pleasure. I have a tentative plan to get that done this week and Anime Expo the following week, but we'll see if that's too ambitious.

Comments and concerns can be left in the usual place. CLOSED

Lessee, what else do I need to do? Finish up inputting my old reviews, comment on the AX photos, upload Doug's Fanime pics...damn, I'm slacking hard.

Fanime 2008 Report Part 0

Taking a break from Neverwinter 2 (yes, I know that game has been out for about a year now), I finally get back to doing my goddamn job here at Dragon's Anime, heheheh. For your viewing pleasure, I have Day 0 of the Fanime 2008 report up.

Fanime Report 2008

Fanime 2008 was, overall, a pretty enjoyable and oddly restfull experience. I’d go so far as to say even low key. It doesn’t share the same tireless energy as ACEN, the frenzied pace of Anime Expo, or the overwhelming (even disorientating) abundance of Comic Con, but it has its share of things to do; all of which are fun. However, Fanime always has this tone of being extremely laid back, or as Gensao put it, “It’s a three day con spread over four days.” This is true, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. One doesn’t NEED to be going from place to place at mach speeds of over 9000 all the goddamn time. Sometimes it’s best to sit around and chill with a few thousand people and meander around from place to place in no particular rush. Only thing that would have made it better is if they had a bar right outside of the dealer’s hall and registration or served beer at the Maid Café. Hey, that’s an idea: a Maid wet bar. No, not wet nurse, wet bar! Sheesh, bunch of pervs out there, I swear. Wait, I’m the only one writing here. FUCK!

ACEN 2008 Report Part 2

Well, finally got the ACEN 2008 report part 2 written and posted. There you can see the culmination of my trials and tribulations...okay, I can't back that up. What you can see is the good time I had at a great convention. True it had a few mishaps, but overall, I'd recommend that place to everyone.

Anime Central 2008 Report Part 1

Well, finally got the first half of the Anime Central report done. It's filled with fun, anecdotes, and the occasionally "What was I thinking?!" moment, as one so often finds themselves at cons.

Feel free to discuss or ask questions on the message board. CLOSED

Acen 2008

This article has been consolidated into one from its original two part format to allow for easier reading.

Anime Central 2008 was by far the absolute best convention I have ever been to.

Yes, that statement deserved its own paragraph. It was that good. Hell, it was fucking awesome…probably the most rewarding convention experience I’ve ever had. No, not quite as good as sex, but the feeling lasted far longer, heheh. I can’t say enough good things about it…I just wish I had the time to do everything I wanted to do. Outside of that, there’s really nothing I have bad to say about it.

Initially I wasn’t really planning on going to any other conventions outside of Fanime and AX until I was invited to ACEN by Cap`n_moonie from the chat channel I frequent, #TenchiFF on the aniverse network. At the time I wasn’t too sure about heading back that direction, but I checked my finances and my leave time, and found I could easily accommodate that. Also, I’d never met ol’ moonie and I was looking forward to that. Originally another member of the channel, aisu, was supposed to join us, but she was unfortunately unable to make it. It helped I wound up sharing the room with moonie and a few others so I could cut down on costs considerably…plane flights are rather expensive after all. It also helped that I had applied for a press pass and received one.

One day before the movie is released on video, only four short months after it premiered, and topping in at the 19th highest grossing movie of all time, we have the Transformers as I saw it at Anime Expo 2007. It was an experience beyond all imagining, and I can only hope that my tale can convey the slightest glimmer of what it was that happened there.

Drop by the forums and add your thoughts about the whole event. CLOSED

RoaDLM - Anime Expo 2007 Report - Day 3 & 4

What's there to say about this one? A whole lot, with a couple of mini reports to come. Still, this is the main meat of the convention. Hopefully it fulfills the requirements of informative. I would recommend to all who know us to at least give it a once over if you're planning on heading to AX next year. At the very least, you may be better prepared for whatever goes down.

As always, there's a thread over on the message boards to discuss this article and all other matters pertaining to Anime Expo.

Anime Expo 2007

Originally published as four separate articles, one for each day; they were compiled into one in order to allow for continual reading.

So…Anime Expo 2007.

Yeah, that about says it all if you were there. Going through the various blogs, forums, reposted emails, and what-have-you, the consensus was pretty much on the order of: What the flying fuck, over? For my own personal experience, this year’s convention has the most unique dichotomy; it was both the very best convention I’ve been to…and the very very worst. It was so bad, in fact, that I don’t know if I’m going back next year.

My reports on Anime Expo this year are going to be broken up into a few overlapping categories. I’m going to do a day by day report, a report on the SKIN concert, a report on the Transformers movie showing, and finally, a report on all the shit that went on this year that really REALLY fucked it all to Hell.
