So, this marks my third year going to SakuraCon. So far, so good.
For the day, I checked out Robotics;Notes and A Certain Scientific Railgun, both now series I’ll have to watch + consider for the queue. Later in the day included a short bit of Tiger & Bunny which I’ll also have to watch at some point.
Panels included Aniplex of America, which reminded me just how much anime is about merchandising, good god people. The AMV Contest, well, the part I could sit through since I had a ramming headache a few minutes in. There was one fairly good AMV around Gurren Lagann that I was around for, may have to find the later entries online. Anime Parody and Abridged Series was an apparent bust for topic, but was oddly hilarious as tehexorcist essentially transformed it into an AMA that at one point resulted in dancing. Zapp Brannigan’s Loveline was a fairly good show for yet another year, and I tried out this Anime Offensive Show which just wore a little too hard.
For day one, I kept myself fairly busy and actually didn’t spend much time on the floor to catch cosplayers. I’ll see if I brave up to attempt tomorrow, or just got the people walking about photos I prefer.
Day 2 ahead looks like CrunchyRoll, Attack on Titan Dub Screening, Funimation or Harem Anime History, maybe Kill la Kill, Zapp Brannigan yet again, plus some other stuff. Fun ahead!
If you’re at SakuraCon and see someone with an American Eagle hoodie the color of a highlighter feel free to say hello. It may be me.
