Yes, I’m still trying to get through some 3 gigs of photos and videos taken fromone camera alone over a period of two days.  I’ll be posting pictures in batches of 50 though with 1380 pictures and videos, it’s going to take a while.

Thanks to all I met, those who helped. Special thanks to Maxy for a place to crash for Saturday night. Akui Ill-Intent for being too kind for looking after my gear as I collected pictures, Comic Market artists cards. Thanks to Steve Bennett and Ben Dunn for supporting Anime North for coming to Anime North all these years.

Now onto sorting through those pictures.

It’s hard to believe it’s less than a week away to Anime North 2010 and I haven’t got anything done. Web pages need to be prepped. Equipment made ready. Batteries charged.

Place to stay? Well we’re working on that.

You can check out the funky CG background planned for AN on our front page. Also I’m hoping to make things easier by able to have photos up in record time … if not same day.

Plus the tradition of having a new card to hand out every year. While the front may not have changed the back will have some useful links to new things.

See you in 6 days.

FCBD 2010 What a blast!

Outside Neo Tokyo just before it opened for FCBD

It rained … it thundered … it didn’t keep away the fans from getting plenty of free manga at Neo Tokyo for Free Comic Book Day.  The rain stopped but not the crowds as the lineup outside didn’t abate until some time after 2pm.

If you missed this event you missed all these books which you had a chance of picking one of.  I’ll post a review of the book I choosen but it might take a while. Boogiepop and Others is the original light novel which the anime, Boogiepop Phantom was  based.

So go through the photos while I curl up with a good book.

It’s only days before the Free Comic Book Day and it’s looking good. I’ll be at Neo Tokyo for best part of the day. It’s looking like many will be making Neo Tokyo their first stop. I can attest that Rob at Neo Tokyo has quite a selection of  books this year.

See you there.

We’ve added the cards from artists that were included in the dealer’s room at March Toronto Anime Con. What is left is con report and remake of the web pages to the new design as well as going through 2 hours of video of sessions with the voice actors. So keep an eye out more more content being available in the weeks ahead.

I managed to get a ride at the last minute. I was disappointed in the fact there is no Cosplay Idol this year. However the Jpop Dance was well attended.

I took far more video of voice actors part of the con and should have taken more pictures. I hope to get these pictures up this afternoon. I am working on a new segment for YouTube which will cover footage from several cons. More word on that later.

I spent a wonderful evening at what may be the closest you will get to a ramen stand in North America on Dundas Street before catching my ride back. Thanks to Rosanne and Andrew for the wonderful meal. I also got some heads up that anime section of Fan Expo will be beefed up with talk of some Japanese guests already signed but nothing official.
