Welcome to Traveling - the Scarlet Rhapsody reporting team's collection of anime convention reports. Traveling was established in 2000 originating as a cosplay website with convention reports taking a back seat. The name originated from a Hikaru Utada song of the same name. The music video encompassed what anime conventions are in a nutshell - fun, spontaneous, and whimsical.

In 2003, the press team was created to cover anime events in the state of California. Tom (Kitsune Valentine) and Victoria founded the team during Anime Expo 2003. From 2003 to 2009, the group was named Traveling Valentine, an amalgam of both founding members' online names. Tom retired in mid-2009 and the reporting site went back to Traveling.The core team consists of Victoria, Stan, Jared, and Deb.

Following the Scarlet Rhapsody mantra, "Our hobbies, our stories," Traveling documents the best of times and the insanity that goes on at anime and science fiction conventions and events. We sing. We dance. We cover things.
