Much like how I posted my Anime Boston 2011 recap really late, 2012′s recap is also coming pretty late, considering most bloggers have already shared their experiences (check out fellow writer Laevatein’s recap and check out Organization Anti-Social Geniuses’ Reference Resource Monday post for moar AB 2012 coverage).
I’ll get straight to the point and won’t bore you with details: I enjoyed AB 2012. There. Mainly because it was my first time going as press. I didn’t spend much time in the dealer’s room since I was running around so much trying to cover a lot. This probably helped curb my spending, although I dropped some cash in the Artist Alley. Nothing really changed from the past two years: it’s fairly organized, clean, and spacious. They did move the autograph signing to a different area, which was a big plus.
The most enjoyable part was meeting Kirk Thornton. I also got to get in touch again with David White, the awesome mecha illustrator I interviewed at last year’s NYCC. And I met a few bloggers in person: Justin from OASG and The Paper from Anime Diet. How were the panels? Let’s grade ‘em.
