You know that feeling when your best friend is at a family barbeque while you’re at home writing posts about anime and singing silly Christmas carols?
You don’t? Er, yeah, I don’t either!
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
One cross-shaped scar…
Two godly novels…
Three pals at Fanime, and a partridge in a pear tree!
Fanime 2012 was definitely something this year. It was me and my other two friends’ first time staying all four days at a convention, in a hotel room. It was definitely my first time fully attending a convention’s full festivities, so to speak.
Supposedly, 2012 was one of Fanime’s weaker years. The fact that it was still fun as hell says a lot, I guess. The artist alley and dealers room were definitely my favorite places. As for the panels, damn, I greatly enjoyed the Mobile Suit Gundam panel and the Mamoru Yotoka panel (mostly because one person seemed so fan struck that he seemed extremely nervous when asking questions – awesomeness, haha).
The fun has officially made us decide to make it a tradition to do full-stays at a convention every year. Next summer, we’re planning on attending Anime Expo. Heck, we might even broaden our horizons and attend conventions out-of-state in subsequent years. Gotta thank Fanime for that.
Kill me now.)
