Convention General Thread

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Just got back from Anime Boston. Got some nice Eva artwork, saw FLOW in concert. By far the coolest Eva related thing I saw was at the Asylum Anime booth in the dealers room. These guys go to Japan 3 times a year to find old animation cels, and they had a bunch from Eva. Some of the more interesting ones were:

    Asuka in Eva 2 during the fight against the MP Evas
    Giant Naked Rei just as she starts to "decay"
    Eva 2 after it got eviscerated by the MP Evas
    Asuka with "CHANCE" face
    A good shot of Asuka in her plug suit, not sure which cut exactly
    Half and half of Eva 1 and Eva 2 during their synchronized fight
I was freaking out internally for a solid 30 minutes after leaving the booth. I was touching literal pieces of my favorite show. The pricing was quite a bit outside my range, but I'd definitely like to own a couple of Eva cels in the future.

I've bought stuff from these guys the last four years at ACen, and I was actually thinking about them today since it's coming up. They usually have some sweet Eva stuff in those tubs of misc stuff, and last year I bought three absolutely awesome NGE posters from them. Glad to see someone else giving them some love.

I don't think I'd have it in me to pay for a cel even though they are very cool. I just don't know what I'd do with it.
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

I didn't really look at their other stuff closely, but I did see some Eva wall scrolls that they had pinned up on the wall, and they had the Eva-00 and Eva-02 entry plug figures up on display. I would have liked to spend more time there but we were in a hurry to get food when I found the booth.

Oh it would be a total vanity purchase. I just think it would be really cool to be able to say "Hey, see this really cool scene from my favorite show? I literally own a piece of it."

Also, I'm kinda amazed these guys take the time to come all the way up here, considering they're headquarters are in Kentucky.

Yea, I definitely feel ya, man. I'm just too much of a cheapskate. It would be really something to have a cel from EoE or my favorite episode though(Ep. 19)

Speaking a bit of ACen, they just announced this week that Mitsuo Iso is going to be attending this year! Celebrate, Chicago area Evageeks! I may cry when I see him.

Whelp, looks like Yuriko Yamaguchi has been dropped from Universal FanCon's schedule. So much for that...

FanimeCon and AnimeExpo to hold Jojo themed escape room.

I don't really care for these sorts of things but, it being Jojo-themed, I'm sorely tempted to try it out if I decide to go to AX this year.

Not exactly an anime themed convention but I plan to save up some money so that by next year, I can travel to Baltimore for BronyCon.
