Anime Expo 2010 – Loot

AX10_Loot_1

All my loot from Anime Expo this year was purchased from the MangaGamer booths.

The AX convention bag came with the program guide, a starter deck for Magic: the Gathering, and various advertisement cards.

 

Random Goodies

A purchase of $10 or more at MangaGamer netted you a free bag, $30 or more got you a t-shirt, and $50 or more got you a mousepad.

 

Wall Scrolls

I couldn’t resist the high quality wall scrolls that were made in Japan and then priced very reasonably for the convention.

 

Sketches

The bulk of my spending money went towards getting sketches. Many well-known artists were there such as Kayura Yuka (Da Capo II), Fumio (Tomoyo After ~It’s a Wonderful Life~), and Watanabe Akio (Bakemonogatari).

I’m still bummed out that I wasn’t able to get sketches from Fumio and Watanabe Akio since their orders filled up almost instantly. It seems like other exhibitors commissioned sketches before the hall was even open to the public.

At least I’ll be joining the ranks of the exhibitors next year. *shrug*

 

Autographs

By Day 3, I was tired of getting autographs and skipped out on Yui Horie/Eri Kitamura and May’n/Megumi Nakajima when I saw the lines. Oh well.

 

Music CDs

It was awesome that MangaGamer brought Minami Kuribayashi to perform at their booth. She was Haruka Suzumiya in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and also sang the openings for anime such as Chrono Crusade and Katanagatari. Hearing “Tsubasa wa Pleasure Line” live was a real treat.

I purchased their CDs and got them autographed afterward. ^^

 

It was an amazing AX this year, let’s hope next year is even better!

  1. I wandered into Minami Kuribayashi’s concert right at the nick of time. It’s a shame I wasn’t able to catch any more of the performances at the MangaGamer booth and I’d say she did a pretty good job on that crappy stage.

    A lot of their performances overlapped with panels and other things I wanted to go to. :/

    It’s really a pity they only got that tiny stage to perform on. I would love to see Minami Kuribayashi in NOKIA Theatre next year.

    Thanks, I guess I was the only one walking around in a Cal shirt that day?

    I succumbed to the temptation to splurge. 🙁

    I’m sure a lot of the artists will be back next year. I still remember Kayura Yuka and Katakura Shinji from last year’s AX.

  3. Excellent loot from AX broheim 😀
    I am most jealous of some of the things you got! *_*
    At any rate, Im certain that next years AX will be just as amazing as this years if not more awesome simply put because 2011 marks their 20th anniversary!

    Note to self for next year…..go to the MangaGamer booths and purchase from there ;3

    I didn’t realize how big the Da Capo wall scroll with the two sisters on it was until I brought it home.

    It’s almost as big as one of my closet doors. o_O

    I spent a few hundreds at the MG booth too, most of my money went toward the sketches as well. It’s amazing that we could buy the sketches from the artists directly, as in Japan, they are usually given out as prizes.

    A few hundred well spent! Sketches done by the artists in person are too good to pass up.

    Hello, you can find anime wall scrolls made by GE Animation mostly at Anime Conventions and on sites like Amazon.com. If you want higher quality ones, places like Hobby Search (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/list/1246/0/1) carry them but they’re usually pre-orders.
