World Travel - Hong Kong Part 1 - Arrival and Ani Com (Pictures)

Ludono

1,199 views

So as you may or may not have heard I was recently on a little trip over to the mystical Far East. This wasn't my first time over there, but this time was a bit different as I had invited along someone else. That someone else was none other than royzoga. It was his first real trip out of the country, and what a trip it would be!

 

This post, alone with the following posts, details our trip in written format, accompanied by pictures. We also shot several videos and vlogs which I will edit together and post at a later date.

 

After flying into Toronto from our respective cities, we embarked onto the 16 hour flight to Hong Kong.

After recuperating, we headed out and found an odd Ghibli exhibit on display at a Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Aside from posters and descriptions of the films, there wasn't terribly much to see. However, that same weekend there was a convention in town called Ani Com. We weren't entirely sure what it was other than it had to do with Anime and Videogames, so of course, we had to investigate.

 

The $3 entrance ticket was great, the waiting in an hour long line that wrapped around several buildings and up and down staircases was not. However once we actually got into the con, here's some of what we saw.

 

The first booth we saw upon entering. Oh the irony.

And of course, the object of my desires......

 

ALPACAS!

There was a display with old manga art and sketches and signed sketches from famous mangakas.

Then back onto the show floor.

And of course it wouldn't be a proper Anime con without the biggest hit since FMA.....

We also bumped into someone who seemed a bit lost.

And that concludes my first post about our trip, mainly because I don't want to overload these posts with pictures! These are but a small sample of the pictures I took, but I'm trying to pick out the best ones for these posts.

 

Be sure to comment and tell me what you think!

"I don't want to overload this post with pictures" Lol I have an ancient laptop I had to wait around 10 minutes to finish for all of them to load since they all came at me at the same time. Got a lot of "not responding" messages too. Having some in spoilers would have been greatly appreciated. Getting a lot of "posted images" not sure if thats me or the editor.

 

But anyway it looks like you had a blast. That line was huge though! I would not have been able to stand through it. You guys are very patient.

 

Those little Alpacas are adorable x3 Did you buy one?

Not sure putting the pictures in spoilers would decrease loading time since doesn't it still load them, albeit under spoilers? If anyone could clarify this I'll start putting them under spoiler tags.

 

And no, there was a massive line to buy stuff at all the booths so I thought I would just get one come Tokyo...... but that didn't happen either ;_;

FFFUUU!!! I've been trying to load this blog for an while and it keeps crashing on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. I even loaded it up while playing GT5 and watching anime on PS3. It crashed eventually. So much overload Ludo! xD

I got the same with Kiky with those messages. I'll eventually see these images. From the looks of it, you had a great time and glad you did. Can't wait to see the awesome stuff you'll be sharing more. Someday I'll visit these places and my dad used to visit them when he was in the Navy. 

Also yeah try putting the pictures in spoiler form to see if that helps.

I think it would decrease it since its only actively showing things when your ready to see them instead of them all jumping you at once. I also don't think I'll be back to comment anytime soon since it really lags my comp xD So send me a pm if you respond.

 

Also dang, thats a bummer they look really cute. Looks like there was a line for everything, everywhere you went.

Random Gundams (Not sure specifically since I don't watch Gundam lol)

 

Valvraves are from the show Valvrave the Liberator, it's pretty recent and fairly decent. (haha, that rhymed!)
