This isn’t even the full-res panorama of the sea of this year’s Anime Expo, but you can tell that South Hall was packed with eager con-goers ready to check out everything the exhibit hall had to offer. Amazed? I sure was. Especially since I’m usually the one in that sea of people!
Mostly quick photo updates of the highlights of Days 0 and 1 since I just now got access to the internet. Day 0 went well with rather snappy premiere badge registration, and opening ceremonies went off without a hitch. Minus the change in access for red carpet activities. More details in a later post.
Highlight of Day 1? Avatar / Legend of Korra cosplay gathering. It was great to see such a transition from last year’s gathering and how many people transitioned over to Korra outfits (with many donning the role of the titular character herself).
Ran into old friends, made some new ones (ah, the beauty of socializing in long lines), got a nice tan (both days), took a ton of photos, and managed to stay away from some rather extravagant figure purchases. Details on each day’s panels and such to follow. As soon as I catch some rest.
