Anime Expo 2010

Years ago, I used to watch anime during high school and college days. Never was really into it, but did enjoy watching them with fascination. Speed up a few years later, I seem to have picked up on watching this stuff again.

Since i've always heard of Anime Expo, Comic Con, etc., but never really bothered to check it out.

Until now, this year they had special guests Megumi Nakajima and May'n singing in concert. If you don't know, they are the singers for the Macross Frontier anime. If you don't know, i'm a big Macross fan. They also had a special guest Yoko Kanno performing with the duo.

The day was filled with lots of walking the convention center floor, surrounded by these people bringing their favorite anime characters to life. Many of the costumes I was were simply amazing. The amount of work, i'm sure some of these people put into their costumes, shows passion. I guess that's why they are called otaku.

Definitely a must to check out if you're a fan, even if you're not I think you'll probably still enjoy just watching the characters walking about.
