I visited friends and had fun in San Jose.
I wasn’t really expecting much going to the Crunchyroll Expo this year. It’s a smaller con, and I had already missed Anime Expo in Los Angeles. What I learned is that it really isn’t the size of the convention you attend. It’s about the people you spend time with, and the interest you have in the actual going-on of the event. I ended up having a great time.
I would attend again if given the opportunity.
They had plenty of panels, concerts, a manga library, and gaming section. There was a little of something for everyone. It was nice to see the diversity. And of course there was plenty of merchandise to go around. What would a con be without people getting in over their heads? The atmosphere was great.
I was reminded at the event that SAO is now ten years old. What is my age again? Age doesn’t have anything to do with fun and hobbies. I took a few pictures of the exhibit and wanted to share them with the community.
It was pretty cool touring the exhibit. It’s wild to me that it’s been going on for a decade. Still waiting for a more diverse set of villains, or obstacles for Kirito to face (please no more rapists/psychopaths). The spin offs of SAO have been great. Lets get more of those.
I also managed to get a picture of the RWBY anime as well. Well they had stand ins for it. Exciting times for RWBY fans who always wanted it to be an anime.
At this point I know I have your buy in for my up and coming photography career. Now here is the point where we veer off the beaten path of anime. Yes, I am talking about loving your waifu so much you would wrap your car with them. It’s not the kind of money I have casually lying around, but I am mildly interested in cars and very interested in anime. But because I happen to have the pictures you have to see them now too.
Have you ever considered wrapping your car in your favorite waifu? I think I wouldn’t be brave enough. But thanks for the cool pics!
So was there a point to all of this? Yes, to have fun. And it was fun.
