Anime Expo 2010

This was my first year at Anime Expo, and it was amazing! I mostly attended voice acting panels as well as AX Idol. I didn't win, but it was super fun, and I learned a lot of stuff.

Day 1
Anime Expo 2010 Day 1

This was Anime Expo Idol 2010. I got there in the morning, picked up my badge, and then rushed all around to find where the AXIdol sign-in was. Turns out it was in the JW Marriot hotel outside of the convention center. Luckily I made it in time, but I was quite tired, which is probably why my throat dried up partway through my audition. The competition was intense, but really fun.

Day 2
Anime Expo 2010 Day 2

The only significant thing I did this was was the Danny Choo panel, but it was very inspiring. Choo basically explained his story about how he made it to Japan. It was quite a touching story I thought. I didn't win the game of jan-ken-pon for the Black Rock Shooter figure though. I found it in the deal hall for almost $100 O.O

Day 3
Anime Expo 2010 Day 3

This was the Crispin Freeman panel and AX Idol finals. I thought it would be a good idea to attend the finals anyway, just to see what I would be up for next year. It was quite a rush, there were so many people, and the excitement was only boosted by Johnny Yong Bosch and Cristina Vee. All of the finalists were amazing, they definitely deserved to win. Freeman's panel was also very educational.

Day 4
Anime Expo 2010 Day 4

The final day of the con, and the Cristina Vee panel and the big Voice Acting panel. Those were also really fun and educational. Not much else to say about that. Had to leave early to get to the bus in time to head back to San Diego, otherwise I would have stayed to watch the AnimeTV panel.

Overall, the experience was great, and I hope to be able to go again next year.
