“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!


Some of these are repeat cosplays I’ve worn at past conventions, namely Prof. ShÅ«ichi Ginkgo of my very own Professor Ginkgo Chronicles (far left) and Umetarō Nozaki of Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun (far right). But the newest to the lineup is the yukata (center left) that my family got me a couple months ago, and Osamu Mikumo of World Trigger (center right) that sadly I couldn’t wear last year because it came through the mail exactly a day after AX2016 ended (just my luck)! Well not this time!

Now I’ll try to make this quick, because frankly being at Anime Expo as a staffer isn’t nearly as interesting as being there as an attendee; that, and most of my experiences are inside jokes. Long story short, there are times when things get super busy for us.

Manga/Anime Symposium at AX 2014 pt. 1


After five exhausting, but fun days at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Anime Expo has come to a close. And while I am slowly trying to get back into normalcy (I always have about a week to transition), I will be highlighting a few of my favorite things/events that happened at the convention… in another post!

In the meantime, I will be highlighting what is perhaps my favorite segment of Anime Expo. And as much as I like world premiers, cosplay pictures, industry announcements, free stuff, and staff/volunteer moments, nothing seems to beat feeding my cognitive curiosity and thinking about the things that I love at a very intellectual level.
