    • A Week in Tokyo 201509
      The first post in the A Week in Tokyo series that I wrote was back in November 2007. It's been interesting looking at past posts to see what life was back then and how much it has changed over the years. Unfortunately, there started to be big gaps in the frequency of updates. As talked in the latest Desk Diary entry, I had to make a decision to hang on […]

Otakon 2010. Baka to Photos to Anime. part 1

My second venture to Baltimore for the largest anime convention on East coast. Was waiting for it, and unlike last tear booked my ticket about two month in advance, thus sparing myself from 2 and a half hours queuing under the blazing sun.
This time just walked into the main entrance and grabbed that badge.

And so it went, three days non-stop fun.
Like I was mentioning in my older posts I’m very much into photography. Not professional at all, but rather just for fun.
Enjoy… Otacon 2010 from the inside of the iron shell.

Tank had Breached Into New York Anime Festival!

Believe it or not, this is my second anime convention so far. A bit more than a year ago, I dived into this anime fandom and since then I can’t surface. Everything, manga, anime, art, music, web resources and certainly conventions are so captivating and exiting to me.

So, here’s New York Anime Festival or NYAF for short. It had been held in Jacob Javits Center in New York City, same complex where annual New York Auto Show takes place. Complex itself is pretty huge, but as I’ve been previously warned by one of my friends NYAF occupies only one section of the whole center, and yes it is tiny.

First time being to an anime convention I went to Otacon in Baltimore, Maryland, and oh my goodness it was ginormous – 2 huge buildings topped off with thousands of people. I had a blast there. I’m not saying that NYAF isn’t worth visiting, it certainly is. It’s just a little less fun.

Jacob Javits Center as it looks from the corner of East 34th st. and 11th Avenue:
