Anime Boston 2011 Recap

One of the very few cosplays that were good. Celty from Durarara!!

Well this is old news, but since I’ve been a lazy ass and not updating the site as regularly as I should, I’m going to tell you about my Anime Boston experience now.  Anime Boston took place from April 22nd-24th.  It was a pretty fun weekend (minus me getting sick and missing the next two days of class and work -_-).  Anime Boston was pretty much like any other anime con you go to; that is, there’s plenty of fail cosplay, annoying weeaboos, annoying people in general, smelly otaku, and lots of stuff that you’re tempted to buy but don’t have the money for.  I was pretty good this year about keeping my spending to a minimum; the stuff I did buy were mostly gifts for friends.

The biggest highlights for me as is usually the case are the guests and autographs.  I was especially excited since Stereopony was one of the guests of honor.  I first heard of them when I watched Mobile Suit Gundam OO Season 2.  They sang the second OP “Namida no Mukou.”  Also of note, I got to meet some of the English cast of Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.  I met J. Michael Tatum who voices Ryoji Kaji, Brina Palencia who voices Rei Ayanami, Trina Nishimura who voices Mari Makinami Illustrious, and Spike Spencer who voices Shinji Ikari (ugh).  Meeting J. Michael Tatum was a blast; he’s just as energetic as he is in his voice roles.  Regrettably, I didn’t have my Baccano! DVD case for him to sign.  I absolutely loved his rendition of Isaac.  Anyways here’s the gallery. Enjoy.

Sorry you can't see the face. This is Shiho the drummer.

The person on the left is Nohana the bassist.

Next to Nohana is Aimi the vocalist/guitarist.

The Evangelion signing. Closest to farthest: J. Michael Tatum, Brina Palencia, Trina Nishimura, and Spike Spencer

J. Michael Tatum in the flesh.

Trina Nishimura

Spike Spencer. I wonder how it feels to be forever associated with Shinji? That's gotta suck...

I lucked out and got to take a picture with Stereopony. If you bought a limited t-shirt, you were able to take one with the band. Needless to say I was psyched. Clockwise: Shiho, Nohana, Aimi, Me
