Matsuricon 2010

I’ve got a confession to make. I’m an otaku. Apparently this surprises people so perhaps I need to add Otaku to my typical Geek/Programmer/Baka twitter bio or something. I’ve always loved anime/manga and the earliest two I can still remember are Robotech and Sailor Moon back when I was probably seven or eight years old. With that out of the way, on to the actual topic of this post!

Matsuricon 2010 was totally amazing! It was my very first anime convention and (I think) only the second convention/conference I’ve been to so it was a new experience for me. I got a great chance to meet tons of new people and I also got to meet up with Chi and her friends. I hadn’t seen her for nearly a year so it was really great to see her again.

I was inspired to start drawing again, which I’m doing almost every day since now. I also made the decision to go to Ohayocon and will probably be going as either Urahara from Bleach or Honda from Yu-Gi-Oh. Honda shouldn’t be too difficult to get things together for anyway.

I’ve already put off writing this post for several days, so I’m going to end it rather short before I forget to write it altogether. In summery, I had an amazing time, I got to meet a very close old friend and made some great new friends. In fact it also looks like Matsuricon 2010 will be the cause of my first date…

I’ll consider writing a post about it in the near future, however I probably will not. Anyway, Enjoy the photos I took during the con and thanks for reading!
