Anime Central Recap

Postby CatsWithMatches » Wed May 21, 2008 6:11 am

This was quite possibly one of the very best Acens I've been to. Unfortunately, I have no pictures...

The Ups -

* A nice long chat with Robert Dejesus. (The guy who drew Banzai Chibi Chan in PSM magazine many years ago)

* A concert by a band called Voices 4. It's made up of a number of anime voice actors, and they cover antiwar songs. (Oh, and Lunartic, that was me in the green shirt three feet from you. I'm so damn shy.)

* The best Soap Bubble EVAR!! (it's a massive (2-3K person) rave in the grand ballroom.)

* The Spoony Bards! An anime and game music cover band, that played some wonderful stuff, like the Chocobo theme (with a chorus of tequila! thrown in), The Boat Song from TSSSC, and Stars of Tears from Xenogears, which almost made me water up, who knows why...

* Anime playing 24 hours a day throughout...


The Downs -

* Over MUCH too quickly, and this was the first year I didn't get anxious to get back home at the end.

* Not as much music available in the dealers room these days.

* Food is always ridiculously overpriced. (hey, it IS chicago)

* Still had no time to get any sort of cosplay together

That sounds like a fun con. Did you see any Lunar cosplayers? I've only ever seen a Lucia, one year, at a con in my area. :(

Not this year. In past years, I've seen people dressed as Alex, Luna, Hiro, and Lucia.

OMG, why didn't you TELL me?!?!? X___x
No need to be shy! We could've geeked out over Lunar if I knew it was you lol. :P
Voices 4 is amazing, I went to their concert last year too. They were definitely one of the highlights for me this year. I have some footage up from the concert on YouTube. :D

Honestly though, up until Sunday night, this convention wasn't the greatest for me. Maybe I'm growing out of them. There was a lot of drama, it seems I did a lot of crying this year instead of smiling. :(
