Anime Expo 2005 took place at the Anaheim Convention Center from July 1st to July 4th. AX brought big name guests from Japan including Maya Sakamoto and Seki Tomokazu. Of course, for many attendees, AX is not just about the guests and the panels, but meeting friends and making memories. Because the convention is one of the largest in the world, AX attracts anime fans from across many places. So many faces to see, so many things to do in one weekend! AX is a special time for Traveling Valentine, because both Tom and I share our anniversary that weekend. It has been two strong years and counting! We hope you enjoy Traveling's personal coverage of Anime Expo 2005.
