Pay no attention to the rivet that happens to be where our mascot's nipple would be, that was not intentional.
Driving to LA
Setting up the booth
As usual, we have some interesting products. Did you know these Trading Torsos are squeezable?
I love this figure. It's 1/4 scale!!
This is Char Aznable, but I believe he's really cosplaying Tanaka from Otaku no Video, cosplaying as Char, making it quite a deep joke.
Miku Hatsune didn't have a leek so we gave her one.
A satisfied customer of our high school uniform line.
There were about a Brazillion of Asuka's there. This one was hawt.
She put the shirt on and then grabbed her boyfriend's butt, just like on the shirt. It was pretty cool to see.
These anime fans were so tired.
Um, yeah. Buy the used panties of anime characters. It was a really deep joke, but a little off-color.
Living outside of the U.S. makes stuff like this seem *so* stupid. I had to laugh at actually seeing one of these signs.
Our bishoujo game panel was full. I was happy.
LA being LA, there is a lot of Korean stuff. I found some great "fast food" Korean BBQ.
The hotel was quite good. It was, among other things, the Buck Rogers hotel showing futuristic New Chicago.
This is Shokotan, the star of the convention this year. She came by our booth and bought a bunch of kanji T-shirts, since she just loves Americans' take on anime. It was cool talking with her, since she didn't expect to find anyone who could speak Japanese selling stuff.
Closing out the con. I like to show this stuff since most people never get to see it.
There are always little piles of trash after these things. It's kind of lonely to see.
That's all for this year, Anime Expo. As the Japanese might say, see you next!
