“Tadaima” from Anime Expo 2017


Hey everyone! I’m back from Anime Expo 2017, and as a staffer who had spent an entire 6 days there from June 29 through July 4, it’s been quite busy!

This is my third year on staff, so if you were there and stopped by the Ticketing Office at some point, you probably saw me in one of the featured costumes shown here!

And with a much needed rest from the time I was there (and the 3000+ words I wrote for its Manga/Anime Studies Symposium), I compiled a list of 10 things (in no particular order) that highlighted my experience. Click these links for Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of the Manga/Anime Studies Symposium review. Continue reading
