Anime Expo 2008 settled in its new home in downtown Los Angeles on the Fourth of July holiday weekend (July 3 - July 6, 2008) at the Los Angeles Convention Center. There were many complaints and boycotting because of the new location. Anaheim was great, but all good things must come to an end. Anime Expo 2008 had a niche guest list - if you were into Metal Gear Solid, you had David Hayter. Ouran High School Host Club fans had a treat awaiting them as they found out who was cast in the Funimation production.

Despite the cries of boycotting and perceptions of gang violence waiting to happen, Traveling Valentine and Traveling Valentine: SVU survived Anime Expo 2008. Suffice to say, it was a satisfying event. However, Anime Expo 2008 did not feel the same as the early days. The convention had many highlights and lowlights. Have I said too much? There's nothing more I can think of say to you. But all you to know is that every word is true.
