So, this past weekend I got to experience my first Anime Con in Columbus. Not just mine, but it was also my Bestie’s. She was more excited, but that’s because she is the anime fan. Me? I’ve seen a few episodes in the past thanks to her. Why I never continued on with them? Not sure.
We arrived on Friday afternoon. Once we were checked into the hotel, we set off for registration. I have to say looking for the registration room and even where everything was going to be? It made me think of high school. The freshman who can’t figure out where they are going. We asked for directions but still got confused. The convention center in Columbus was a lot more difficult to get around than Cleveland’s convention center. Maybe, I’m spoiled though. I’ve been to the Cleveland one a few times.
As we were looking for the autograph area. We got suckered in by a guy sitting at a table to do a quiz. Of course, I had to pick Star Wars. No way would I know any anime. We won both a button and a movie poster. The movie poster has landed in the trash can. The button is still sitting on my dresser. I don’t even think the button had anything to do with anime. The poster? One, I never saw the show on Netflix and it wasn’t worth it to save. I might have also not been paying attention when I threw the poster in my bag. Let’s just say it might have gotten ripped or folded.
Bestie got some of her autographs. While she waited in line, I sat down and read my book. It might sound boring to some. But, I was happy. Give me a book and I can be lost for hours.
After the con, we went to a pizza place that was across our hotel. It felt like Chick-Fil-A. If you said, “thank you”. The waitress would say, “my pleasure.” Not a bad thing, but you can only take so much of those. Or, maybe it’s me. But, at the same time. It’s always good to thank them. I guess it’s a no win-win situation. The meal was great. I, of course, didn’t do pizza. But, I’m thinking I should have. The chicken sub was yummy and spicy. But, with fries? Let’s just say I didn’t starve. I could have taken it back to the hotel for what I didn’t finish. But, greasy food is never great the second time when you microwave it. Unless someone knows a trick?
Once we got back to the hotel. The rest of our night was pajamas and anime. We did a few episodes of Noragami. I watched the first episode without her last week and liked it. But, after a few more episodes. I was hooked. I might have binged watched the first season yesterday.
So this is turning into a long post and this is only for Friday. I’m thinking, I’ll do another post for Saturday. I’ll have more later.
