Anime Boston 2013 took place on May 24 - 26, 2013 at the Hynes Convention Center and Sheraton Hotel in Dowtown Boston. Anime Boston is New England's largest anime convention and been rated as the best gathering of nerds and eccentrics in the Commonwealth. This Anime Boston brough in record numbers; 25,000 paying attendees as of day one. Despite May rain and worries that added security might be a repeat of Line Con, Anime Boston 2013 ran strong. A-list anime industry guests - Shinichiro "Nabeshin" Watanabe, Origa, Raj Ramayya, IBI, and others headlined New England's premiere anime convention.

This is Scarlet Rhapsody's first time attending Anime Boston after being persuaded and nudged by the Boston otaku community to hit this one up. The theme for the report is based on the soundtrack for Spice World - because the weekend was definately full of girl power as reflected in the panels that we present at con (I Heart the 90s: Shoujo Edition and Moon Prism Poptarts). Zero Hour coverage for Anime Boston 2013 can be heard here.
