I'll have to upload pics of some of the stuff I bought, too. Anyone a fan of the Kenshin series? I bought a reverse samurai sword like the one he uses in the TV show. $30. Stainless steel. Even if it's unusable as a weapon that's still a good price. And still, it'd hurt like a mother to get whacked with it.

now that's just sad.

Actually there was quite a few families that went. Some families that dressed up together. I got a pic of a mother/daughter combo that I didn't upload yet.

Naw that guy is Nabeshin from Excel Saga. It's a really weird anime that's kind of like.. a parody of almost every other anime out there. I wouldn't be surprised if he was based off of a similar character though. The main "bad guy" and Excel's boss is also this guy that looks an awful lot like Kagato from Tenchi Muyo.

Nobody. I'm lame. Maybe next year, though.

Maybe I'll crop a picture of myself from one of the pics to prove I went as myself since I assume there'll be a few that say I went as Sailor Moon or something. =P

Edit:

Quote:
Nabeshin is the coolest guy in the show, and possibly in all of anime. With a Lupin-esque wardrobe that borders on copyright infringement, Nabeshin is always poking his head in to perform some impossible task or otherwise repay some unknown debt to a friend, without ever really explaining why. He's just there. And he's just cool. And he's got a mighty afro that gives Batman's utility belt a run for its money!

And Nabeshin isn't just a character in the series, he's the actual director (Watanabe Shinichi)!

Jacked that description from some website. If you've never seen Excel Saga you should check it out. And if you do, ... you might want to consider selecting the subtitle option that doesn't have all the little extras that explain everything. There's so many parodies and Japanese jokes/references/puns that it has to explain that it clutters the screen sometimes.

Reppy you said you lived in Seattle right? Where do they have the anime coventions around here? For the record, I'm not trying to go to one; just curious.

Naw I live in SW Washington.. about a 2-3 hr drive from Seattle. (I can get to Portland in 30 minutes or so.)

There's an anime convention in Washington called Sakura-con. It's one of the bigger ones. They have it around April, I believe. Never been to that one but I'd love to go. But I'd have to reserve hotel rooms and stuff. It'd be worth it though.

I'm sure I could have gotten a massive list of phone #s but I doubt my girlfriend would be too pleased about that. =P
