Expo took place on July 1 - 4, 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center
in downtown Los Angeles. The convention drew in otaku of all walks of
life. Some have travelled from out of the country to be a part of the
world's largest anime themed convention. Anime Expo has been around
since 1992 and has seen many changes through the years. This year promised
one of the best guest of honor lineups yet. Anime guests included Megumi
Nakajima and May'n of Macross Frontier fame. They also had
the creator of Black Lagoon, Rei Hiroe and otaku blogger, Danny
Choo. In addition, they had musical guests Sophia, AKB48, MELL, and
a surprise visit by Yoko Kanno.
Expo has ran into problems prior to the convention. However, the Scarlet
Rhapsody team managed to find things to do during the convention and
just take things as they go. This report represents our Anime Expo 2010
