Well the con was interesting. I can’t wait for the costume pics to start hitting the web.
Overall: The addition of Kenshin to Cartoon Network appears to have made a direct impact. Lots of Sano cosplayers this year. A great Majin Buu costume.
The dealers room reflected that Narutu, One Piece, and Chobits are popular/will be more popular.
I walked out with some new cels (three Here and There,Now and Then as well as a Nightwalker cel) an Escaflowne Wallscroll (which I’ll be taking to work, I think), the Wolf’s Rain OST, Ayumi Hamasaki’s Ballads CD, and plenty of Hikaru no Go odds and ends.
I also saw the COUp folks, met
A very relaxing (if not expensive) time was had. And this year I remembered to pre-register for *NEXT* year while I was at the con. By then we shoudl be able to get babysitters for both kids…
