Animazement!

Following are two entries (the top is the most recent) copied over from my lj.

Ok...This should be lengthy...pending I remember everything that happened XD

I left around 1pm on Thursday and, after picking up a few supplies at Dollar General, I headed out to Greensboro to meet up with (Aarin). We went for some supply shopping, then spent the night watching anime such as Goldfish Warnimg and My Master. The next morning, we left around 9 something, stopped briefly for breakfast at Sheetz, then drove on out to Animazement, radio blasting and windows down the whole way.

For those who don't know, my car door beeps constantly and my ac is broken XD

We arrived at 11am (an hour before anything started), and we unpacked, then waddled about. Aarin went to stand in line for the dealer's room, while I waited to see My Hime. I regretted not going in the room earlier because they were playing Mahou Sentai MagiRanger. I managed to catch the ending song (and a clip or two of the bishi Yuki Ito), then watched most of the first My Hime Episode. I had to leave early to go to the Sailor Moon fan panel. I liked what I saw, though, and I'll deffinately be looking the series up on YouTube. I spent the hour after that eating lunch and catchng up with Imani. I missed the Ball Jointed Dolls panel, which I now wish I had gone to T_T After that I went to the Power Ranger Mystic Force (Mahou Sentai MagiRanger) panel and drooled of the wonderfl Yuki Ito.

Let's look at his picture again for good measure.



Good now? Ok. So that's when I got my picture taken with him and I was a stupid fangirl (did you know, he's actually younger than me by like five months >..>), and I won the collector's edition of Oh! My Goddess. There was some envy over that XD Imani managed to talk me out of getting an autograph from him, which I now wish I had done, but that's ok, cuz I have his picture. Maybe he'll come back next year and I can get another pic and his autograph then. The reason she wanted to leave was to go see something...but I don't remember what because I lost my paper with all the anime names on it. I think we may have actually ploddled off to the dealer's room and I bought two posters (One from Mermaid Melody and one from an anime I didn't recognize, but it was pretty). After that, there was some lazing about and then we went to the opening ceremony. Somewhere in there I met up with Steven...but it was very short lived and I mostly watched him play video games. But that was cool and he seemed nice.

And the opening ceremony, we saw all of the guests and on the way there we got in the elevator with Chris Cason, the Englsh voice of Gluttony from Full Metal Alchemist. I didn't saw anything, but I was squeeing on the inside XD During the ceremony I noticed that Caitlin Glass (voice of Winry) had a little Makona from the dealer's room. She wouldn't stop playing with it ^^; She then noticed that the girl in front of my had a huge dark Makona plushie and they started to make them dance together from across the table. It was funny as hell. I love seeing the American voice actors because they're just as fangirly and fanboyish as the rest of us Otakus. In fact, I frequently bumped into Kyle Hebert (voice of teen Gohan and the Narrator from DBZ) in the dealer's room. I dont' really remember what else happened until Anime Hell (which was FANTASTIC btw), and there was more anime watching, but again, I don't have the names of any of them XD

Saturday was mostly going to the dealer's room, except that morning (11something), Imani and me headed to one fo the video rooms and watched Kamen Rider and Mahou Sentai MagiRanger. I was SO entertained! I cannot tell you how much better the Japanese power rangers are! There was an actual story line and the script had us all laughing. It was so good! I need to find a way to watch the episodes now...they aren't posted on YouTube yet. The DVDs are hella expensive too.... Oh well, I'll find a way >..>

I didn't really go to any panels on Saturday, I mostly wandered around and watched anime. I did go to the autograph session with the American voice actors and got Caitlin Glass's autograph ^^ It's the first autograph I've ever gotten...I'll definately aim for more next year >..> That night was spent mostly walking around and that's when the Kadamari ball started XD I took the pics of the dolls that I posted earlier that night too.

Sunday was a rush because we had to check out and stuff. I did my final run of the dealer's room (I'll post the pics of my stuff later) and we packed up and left. I spent Sunday night at Aarin's and we watched more of Ouran High School Host Club. You should all watch it! Hehe. The drive home was ok...it was really hot though.

So now...yah...gonna call the Spa about my application.

Ja ne~

I love how you have two pictures of yourself and Ito-sama. Like, we didna see you the first time. Geez, that guy is hot. I think since you already have a boyfriend he should be up for grabs.

Well, that's because I had put it in two different posts in my LJ...the second time so people could see with having to scroll down XD

And no....because I've already said that I would leave Kevin to go to Japan XD

And if Kevin sees this...I'm only joking...mostly...
