Back from Animazement 2012!

I am back from Animazement 2012 and wow, it was a lot of fun! A lot of crazy fun but also a lot of drama and complications such as difficulties filming. I will go through some more detail in a vlog. 

     As we all know, Animazement is my local convention here in Raleigh , North Carolina. There's lots of good locations for pictures, a great gathering of Anime fans but surprisingly, there were more Tokusatsu fans! Nothing makes me happier at a convention to see more fans of Tokusatsu. There were many great costumes, great events, awesome stuff in the dealers room and art work in Artist Alley.

     I wanted to spend my time recording videos but unfortunately, there was a video restriction at the convention even with those with a Press Pass. I did however manage to record an episode of Buck's Adventure at a Convention. Instead of recording, my friends wanted me to do a photoshoot with them. Even though I am not the best photographer out there, my friends had faith in me. Plus, the more pictures I take, the better I get. Check out some of the samples below and all over!

     With the increase of the Toku Fandom going all over, my friends and I spotted more and more Kamen Rider and Super Sentai Toys. It seems like we bugged all the dealers in the past and asked if they had any toku toys. I guess they all listened and brought more of them. I bought some of these toys as you can see in the first picture. The DX Narikiri Rocket Module was given by my friend Decade. I will be using this for future parody videos. SIC ZX was a must and my girlfriend wanted me to get it. The MG Sandrock Ver KA was something I was grudging over since I have the resin kit of him and never finished it. The resin kit took me over 4 years to obtain...and they came out with a Master Grade version...The last figure I got was SkyRider for obvious reason of...I AM AMAZON!

    One of the biggest highlights for me is that I met plenty of my fans at this convention. Though people got confused that I was two other Anime Convention "celebrities" like Cosplay in America, it was great to see that people recognized me from my Animazement videos from last year or from my toy reviews. I hope to see more of my fans at future convention. 

    Over all, I had a wonderful experience at the convention. My friends ran the two toku panels and we did a bunch of giveaways including a bunch of GoBusters toys and an SHF Elek States Fourze. Make sure you all come next year as we may give away more awesome toys. 

   As for updates on my channel, I will be doing my best to work on more toy reviews. I understand I keep saying that but honestly, I've been busy with work and trying to relax. Life is hard and I'm doing my best to work things out in my life. Please understand. 

   Anyways, Thanks for reading and Stay DX!
