Anime Expo 2010

This year’s Anime Expo was really awesome, my first time in a long time of going and boy has it changed! I went back in 1992 when it was still in Anaheim and it was only 1 day. Now it’s 4 days long at the Los Angeles Convention Center and so many people cosplay. Next year is the 20th Anniversary of AX and I already registered for it!  I really lucked out this year by finding a really good place to stay for a low price, and it’s fairly close to the convention center. For now, I’m keeping it a secret since I may want to stay there next year.

Andrew stuck in Gundam jailI watched so many great Anime titles, including Robotech, Ouran High School Host Club, Eureka Seven, Nana, Excel Saga, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Devil May Cry, Hellsing Ultimate, Evangelion, Samurai Champloo, and Death Note. I also watched the Anime Music Videos for all the categories except professional, which I would have wanted to see if I didn’t need to go to the bathroom. When we weren’t watching Anime, we were walking through the Exhibition Hall buying Gundam models and cute T-shirts from Spicy Brown.

We also went to a few panels (Gundam and Danny Choo), as well as the Danny Choo/Fakku meet up at ESPN Zone, where we had some tasty food. This is the first time I’ve stayed and hung out in Downtown LA for so many days in a row, so it was a really cool experience being there. I also enjoyed seeing the many unique and interesting costumes that many of the AX attendees were wearing. Cosplay is not something I ever got into, but I can see why so many people enjoy it. Though it might have cost me my job, I am happy that I went to AX and I look forward to going next year!
