Central 2003 - for most of my friends, this year's ACen was
a huge let down. We had a grumpy old man crash the party, the
walk to the dealer's room was atrocious, and some personal drama
and exhaustion. However, Anime Central 2003 was not that bad
at all. It didn't live up to previous ACens, but I got my money's
one thing, Anime Central was an excuse to take a weekend off
and visit my sister princesses. To me, any price on any airline
to see my closest friends again is well worth it. Another realization
why Anime Central did not completely suck at all would be being
there for my friends. Chatting about drama and distress online
is one thing...you really can't actually hug them or physically
comfort them. I was glad I was finally able to talk face to
face with them and give them the affection they deserved.
from the drama, Anime Central was well worth it. I got to meet
Maya Okamoto, the Japanese actress for Orihime Soletta and shared
a mutual glomp with her. She's the sweetest guest I ever had
met. Hope to see you at AX Idol, Maya-sama! The dealer's room
was very astounding! For a second I thought I was at Anime Expo!
don't have much convention gripe, but I do have to gripe about
the use of the sky way to the dealer's room. I found that walking
across the street was much shorter and easier.
to Kate Peterson for making it to Anime Idol! ^_^v
for next year, I'm not quite sure if I'll be able to make it.
If I do transfer to SFSU, I will attend. If I don't, I'll be
at Fanime. I would like to come again for the madness, but I'll
see what works out. Who knows what the future might bring?!
was nice meeting new faces like Estevan and Jenny. You guys
were great to hang out with on Saturday night! Of course, it
was nice seeing old friendly faces again. I enjoyed the Para
Para, the chit chat, the madness, and everything in between.
Thank you everyone for making Anime Central 2003 worth the $177
AA ticket. I miss you guys even now as I'm typing this. Hopefully,
we'll meet again very soon...love you all! *hugsies* You guys
are simply the best!
