It’s been a long while since I’ve posted. Well, whatever your definition of “a long while” happens to be. I was reading a friend of mine’s blog, (I’ll have to keep reading that)  and it reminded me that this was a great way to put off studying. Seeing as how I will be up all night anyways, taking a few minutes to procrastinate never hurt anyone, right? Well.. maybe.

Megacon came and went, and now it’s time for a post. I haven’t posted in a long while, so I’ll make this a big ‘un. Curryninja’s post on Megacon made me decide I should make one, too. 

Megacon, the pinnacle of anime related events for me during the year. It was good this year, but not the best it could’ve been. I’ve noticed a disturbing trend which has been causing this decay; the lack of diversification. 

In years past at Megacon, I could find semi-obscure things here and there thoughout the convention.  Items from Mushishi, Kino no Tabi, and other series when they were still just being released in Japan. This year I did find some Spice and Wolf and Aria items, but nothing past that. It seems that slowly but surely, all other anime that isn’t Bleach, Naruto, Death Note, FMA, One Piece, or (now) Soul Eater is being phased out. This really has been putting a damper on it all for me.  I mean, I still do find lesser known things, just not in the quantity I once did.

Now, the new thing is “free hugs,” “you lost the game,” and dressing up like a retard. It’s a very rage inducing thing to behold, and I don’t see it getting any better anytime soon. It’s hard to say how annoying they are, you have to experience it.

 But, despite these bitchings, I had a lot of fun. Sunday I was a bit hung-over, but enjoyed it nonetheless. It was good to go with some friends and an almost-but-not-really-but-I’m-trying-girlfriend.  A speeding ticket nailed my money supply for buying loot. But I still made out with some good booty. And here it be:
