I forgot to mention… Yesterday, seeing as the plaza in front of the convention center was full of people dressed up in costumes, some religious nut decided to bring his “worship Jesus or go to hell” sign and preach. The best part was, though, that we had a guy at the convention dressed up as Jesus, who went over and stood over said kook; the kook failed to fall down on his knees :)
I didn’t manage to get up in time to make it to the Clannad marathon, which was my other must-see of the weekend. But, seeing as it was a marathon that ran from 5:30 AM to 1 PM, I still managed to catch two episodes. In hindsight, it’s probably for the best: Clannad was made by the same studio as Air,, which was the saddest thing I’d ever seen. From what I did see of Clannad, if I’d watched the whole marathon, I would have been curled up in a corner crying for the rest of the day. If Studio Key’s motto isn’t “We’ll rip your heart out and feed it to you – repeatedly,” it probably should be.
If I’m going to be completely incapacitated for a day (or more, if it’s anything like Air was,) I think I’d rather do it at home that at a convention.
The highlight of the day was seeing two episodes of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensi 2, which was completely bizzare and absolutely hilarious. I also enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie. And remember how I said I didn’t find Prince of Tennis that interesting? Then why did I end up back in the fansub room watching more of it? :)
At 7:00, they had a Black and White Dance. Of course I brought my tuxedo. I even found a woman who knew how to Lindy Hop. Apparently, this is the second year they’ve had a formal dance, and this year the room was twice as big as last. And it was still too small; when I left at 9:00, there were about 200 people lined up to get in.
Photos: 250 today, but I’m having problems reading them into my computer right now – please please please don’t let the CF card be corrupted!
Update: Managed to get all but three photos off the card. Only took five hard reboots. Into the trash with you, evil CF card of epic failure!
