Nagi doing what pretty much everyone watching the show wants to do . . .
Before I comment on that, however, I just want to tip my hat to Anime Expo for another fun year! I’ll be writing about my personal experiences this year at some undetermined date (hopefully sooner rather than later, but it all depends on how busy I end up being), and I’ll be contributing to the super groovy coverage of AX we’ll be doing at Behind the Nihon Review, so look forward to that, everyone! Some of my AX shenanigans gave me ideas for an upcoming posting series, so look forward to that in a couple of weeks or so, as well!
Also want to give a shout out to all the awesome people I ran into during AX: My roomies, calaggie, Kylaran, Mystlord, and ToastCrust (along with his friend, Darren). All super cool people who made my Anime Expo experience OVER 9000 times better, especially late at night when I was dog tired and everyone was just shooting the shit. Also have to mention my cohort at the Nihon Review, Eternal, and good ol’ zzeroparticle, who would have cleaned up at Name That Anime Tune if we had arrived just a few minutes earlier. The Anime Diet dudes — Mike, Rome, Jeremy and Dan — need a shout, as well, since I saw so much of them this year! Was definitely glad to hang out with them for more than a few minutes.
Then I also need to mention all the awesome people I saw at the various meet-ups and during random meetings throughout the convention center (I can’t count the number of times I bumped into various people I knew): lvlln and Nameless (the latter of whom goes by CPAnime on Twitter), omo, cowboybibimbop, misaki, Yumeka, Jan Suzukawa,
Manma Canon, kevo (you have to write that post we talked about, man!), anya_fennec, R1CK_D0M, and if I forgot anyone else, yell at me for being an idiot. The mind is the first thing to go, they say …
