Dear Bed, I owe you at least 3 more hours of sleep this evening once this convention is over. Love, Scott

DJ Ranma S:
Need coffee stat!

Narutaki:
Checking out and heading to the con.

Kim:
Up and packing for the noon checkout. My friends are dead to the world at the moment. No con for me until later.

Kim:
And of course I have to make the ultimate decision: to cosplay or not to cosplay?

Greg:
It’s Sunday. Day of con relaxation.

Dealers Room Excursion

animenext:
The Dealers Room and the Manga Library open now at 10:00am

Narutaki:
A little dealers room action then over to history of manga.

Greg:
Doh. Someone bought used vol. 1 of Initial D manga before me. Maybe staggering purchases across 3 days wasn’t such a good idea.

Scott:
Shut up, just shut up. You had me at, “boobs”.

Scott:
It’s so moé that you can practically hear her crying, “oni-chaaaan!”

Scott:
There are so many figures for the obscure Chocotto Sister.

Scott:
Either it’s because of the ecchi cover or because of the Neko Nyan Dance.

Narutaki:
Dealers arent makin deals! No 1/100 aegis for me this con.

Scott:
The only thing I bought in the dealers room. The power of Nekomimi Mode was too strong. (>_<)

Kim:
One last trip to the dealers room put me down $40.

Very enthused fangirl talk about otaku.

Scott:
A group of fangirls chattering about Otaku Perceptions and Misconceptions.

Greg:
This panel discusses “otaku” and what it means. http://twitgoo.com/sk8g

Narutaki:
This otaku misconceptions panel is a little all over the place.

Ani-Bloggers

Scott:
Boy, AnimeNEXT kinda screwed up with the Anime Blogging panel.

Narutaki:
Waiting for the blog panel to start.

Scott:
Yeah, AnimeNEXT REALLY screwed up this Anime Bloggers panel. The only folks here are other bloggers.

DJ Ranma S:
@Scott I call shenanigans!

Greg:
Anime blogging: the secret panel no one knows about. o_o; http://twitgoo.com/sknn

Scott:
The bloggers.

Scott:
And the panel viewers… all of whom are already bloggers.

Scott:
“Protip: Don’t blog on Twitter.” Wait… what?!? (o_o)

Leaving for the train. The end of a con is always a little sad.

So my final moments of AnimeNEXT was spent finally talking one-on-one with my co-liveblogger, @Kim.
