After so many years that I dedicated to Anime it has finally paid off somebody has finally noticed my contribution to the Anime industry. I am attending SalAnime as in Sal short for my name Salvador (which reminds me I have to let them know they have a misspelling on their site it reads SacAnime) which I take it’s to honor me for all that I have done for the Anime community. It was nice of them to hold it the weekend after my birthday (can’t blame them since it would be hard to have a convention during mid week) but Aug 31st – Sept 2nd still works for me I just hope my many fans bring me gifts.
(manager-san walks in to my office and whispers in my ear)
What?...So that is not a misspelling?....I see….Oh…..Oh….I misunderstood then…So that means no limo for me?....and no entourage?...and no bodyguards?....I guess I need to make a few calls and cancel some services then.
Ok back to what I was saying um…. It happens that I will be attending SacAnime in Sacramento and not SalAnime as I thought (I see what they did there Sac=Sacramento *Sigh* not Sal). Even though I won’t be the center of the attention *sigh* there will be a lot of events to attend such as AMV contest, Maid Café, Open Gaming Room with lots of games, Karaoke contest, Matsuri festival, J fashion runway (gothic, lolita, visual key, gothic lolita, and more), Live outdoor concerts with 'Akai SKY' and 'Eyeshine'. Also a lot of GoH such as: Johnny Yong Bosch (Adam Park from Mighty Morphin Power Ranchers and Vash the Stampede from Trigun), Jennifer Hale (Naomi Hunter, and Emma Emmerich from Metal Gear series and Commander Shepard from Mass Effect 1, 2, & 3), Laura Bailey (Henrietta from Gunslinger GirlLust from FMA, Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket), and more to see the full list go HERE I will also be there if anyone cares. Did I mention a Rave? Well there is one which goes from 10pm till 2am on Friday and Saturday. Plus there will Itasha’s from Team LoveHATE who are from NorCal and are professionals in the Itasha scene and they will be showing off 3 new designs or their art I am so looking forward to seeing them maybe we can get one for T-ono soon. There will be the vendor hall, artist alley, and masquerade so there is a lot of things to attend. This convention is small if compared to other convention but don’t be fooled it is jammed packed with activities for those who want to go to the Q&A for actors, or get autographs, or just go buy stuff from artist alley or vendors hall. Also if you just want to cosplay it is great convention to dress up and make new friends while taking pictures at the same time. If you are a new convention attendee then this is a good one to attend you won’t be overwhelmed and also make sure to read this before you attend Convention Survival Guide.
