Oh, before you get all jealous and what not, let me just say one thing:
Nothing beats being at an Animanga Expo and continuously hearing anime OP/ED songs that you know. BAM. I said it.
Oh, and this is an EXTREMELY LONG post…but it’s all pictures, so you’ll be fine.
Gundam Artbook? Must get.
Day 1 Haul
It’s annoying how it’s no longer a 18A sticker…it’s directly printed on the sleeve.
DRRR!! merchandise that I’ve been dying to get my hands on.
I was finally able to get my hands on a Tama-nee figure. The pose on this girl was just fantabulous!
DRRR!! mug. I wish they had a DOLLARS one, but it was sold out ;A;
Sonico Prelude artbook/game guide and some discount manga~
Tony’s Artworks. Very lavish book and is apparently limited. Pleased with the buy though!
The Kadokawa Shoten booth provides these limited SoraOto bags upon purchase of adequate amount (Front)
Same bag, backside.
Day 2 Pictures
10 minutes after it opened for the day, the expo is already PACKED.
Some Gundam merch that I decided not to capitalize on (was on budget during Day 2)
The line up for the cashier at 10:20, 20 minutes after opening, at one of the less popular booths.
I apologize for the blurriness, but this was the line up for the most popular booth…whose name escapes me. Just know it provides anime from Denpa Onna to Naruto. Now you know.
BLESS THE GODS. FINALLY AT THE BOOTH FRONT. AFTER 45 MINUTES OF KNEE-BREAKING WAITING.
Limited Tony Select Clear Posters. Only 400 were available at the expo, and at the opening of Day 2, there were less than 100 left. Definitely capitalized on this. Kantoku’s was also limited to the same quantity too, but couldn’t afford buying two sets.
Miku concert ad on a bus. I believe it’s here on 10/6. Sucks how I always miss out on concerts like these… ;A;
Newspaper headline saying that the Animanga Expo is packed with over 100,000 participants. Increasing sales by 200%.
WHAT THE HELL? VOFAN WAS DOING SIGNINGS ON THE OPENING DAY? I WAS THERE. WHY DIDN’T I ASK FOR ONE. GOD I’M SUCH AN OTA-NOOB.
GSC figure gallery in a department store nearby.
WHY ARE ALL THE GOOD THINGS ALREADY SOLD OUT.
Miku Tube…derp…why did I only take a shot of this figure?!
She hit my heart…
Ceiling cat. Nyaa.
Can you locate the one you own?
Charlotte is there to prevent otaku folk from humping the wall.
Day 2 Haul
Sonico / Tony Artbook. Very expensive items ;A;…oh and do notice Nagato’s Rinnegan eye cover. Time to scare the living daylights out of my future dormmate.
Akatsuki mug. Now I can feel like I’m one of them fufufufu :3
I blame the camera. Whatever. Note the delicate poster box.
Moekana cards. #BestLearningMaterialEver
Atelier bag I got from sufficient purchase amount. Really wanted the Miku one instead, but the design on the Miku bag wasn’t as kawaii as this.
Freebies, because I’m a bishie.
FINALLY A SONICO FIGURE. AND ONE WITH LONG HAIR. MY LIFE IS COMPLETE.
More freebies I got…but this was because I paid for the expensive Sonico figure.
Anyways, that’s a wrap!
I would’ve really liked to take more pictures, but recently my hands have been shaking non-stop, so I can’t take great images. On top of that, my camera isn’t that good. However, despite already having gone to the expo for 2 days straight, I would like to visit it again on it’s final day, Tuesday.
Also, note for anyone going to the expo: Sure the ticket is cheap and most things are well-priced…but when you go from booth to booth, the price adds up remarkably quickly…and you’ll end up broke like me and having to go home early~!
