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.
royzoga even tried blending in......
And of course, the object of my desires......
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.....
And of course lots of Mecha stuff.
Sword Art wasn't left out of the fun either....
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!
