Sakura-con 2018 & More

It is hard to believe it has already been a few months since the new year started. As I stated in my earlier plans, I will be heading to Sakura-con again this year. It looks like I will be spending most of my time down there with puddi & D_S as others have not confirmed yet.

Anime Revolution 2016 Day 2

Anime Revolution 2016 Day 2

The second day of most conventions are usually the most jam-packed with activity. As with most Day 2’s, it was a Saturday and had the largest amount of people attending the convention. Let’s just say the hallways were packed more than usual and even moving from one room to another was difficult. After grabbing a quick breakfast, I headed down to see what the second day of AniRevo 2016 would have in store.

Anime Revolution 2016 Day 1

Anime Revolution 2016 Day 1

As with all convention weekends, being prepared is one of the most important things. Having a good breakfast and staying hydrated throughout the day is integral since you may find yourself not having time to do so while there. Friday of Anime Revolution 2016 was no different in that regard. After grabbing breakfast, I headed down to the Vancouver Convention Center to pick up my pass. It was pretty empty at the time as people were still on the way there to pick up there passes. It took me no time to grab my press badge as there was a separate line and it was still early in the day.

Anime Revolution 2014 Day 1 Swimsuit Contest

Ah, the swimsuit contest. This event was quickly at max capacity as many people wanted to watch this 18+ event. I tried to get in last year, but coming a bit late to even try to lineup meant you wouldn’t be able to make it inside. The room was bigger this year and it still managed to hit max capacity. When we got in, people were still getting settled and the judges were starting to sit down as well.

Just like I said before, the room was packed fairly quickly and people were denied entry once maximum capacity was reached due to fire and safety regulations.  On the bright side, there was a healthy mix of people here and it wasn’t as much of a one-sided afair as I thought it would be. People got seated and were fairly quiet for the most part except when asked to cheer or clap.

Anime Revolution 2014 Day 1

Where should I even start? I mean this was probably my most hectic weekend in a long time. I actually just came back from a camping trip the previous week and even that wasn’t as tiring as this weekend convention was. One thing I’ve come to realize after going to many conventions is how important getting sleep early on the Thursday is and how one should have a larger than normal breakfast. Chances are the first night’s sleep is really going to be the only large amount of sleep you’ll get and when you get to the con, you will have to make your lunch/dinner times very flexible.

You would think after coming here last year, I wouldn’t be surprised by this long lineup, but I still am. The line actually goes all the way outside and has two parts to the line just like the previous day. The convention center was packed in the morning as people were trying to grab their passes and file into the main convention area. Personally, I had arrived a little early to make sure we could get good seats into the events we wanted to head to. I was here early in the morning with my friend Mike and puddi and went toward the opening ceremony. Just for clarification, puddi also had a press pass just like me and that would become important later on during the week.
