The weekend was so great that I have no words *__* Manga, tourism, manga, beach, more manga, oh! and many photos (fear me with a digital camera XDDD) It was difficult to find a place to stay the night but the result was the best: we were 30 minutes away from Barcelona but in the beach, 33º in November!!!
And I couldn't believe it when we finally arrive at the con, after 2 hours and a half of row! I remember the last year we went in at the very moment we arrived. You can imagine the hot inside was awful but forgivable when I think about the rest of things X3
My poor friend (very considerate 'cause she didn't even know what 'otaku' means Rebe, eres la mejor! ^^v
) was like crazy trying to not loose me among all the people while I was like crazy going from one stand to another. At the end I bought two CDs (the last one of L'Arc-en-Ciel
and X Character Profile
), a Kazuya Minekura's artbook (Salty Dog II
), Saiyuki sticks, a mini plushie Ed from FMA
and the last volume from Bronze
(not counting pins *sweatdrops*). Now I'm broken ;__; (I guess I'll have to increase my hours of lessons to children).
Karaoke and cosplays were not the best but both were funny, in fact it was wonderful to find people cosplaying some of my favorites OTPs (the costumes were not extremely good but was a relief to know otakus and sellers have different interests sometimes): I was one of those people asking for photos and meeting new people in the process XD
But the main character of these days was Naruto, my! Naruto was everywhere! if you wanted to buy merchandising of Naruto these were your lucky days. Bleach and FMA were next in the `list´ (yeah, I fell for FMA too *g*). However I couldn't help but get angry everytime I asked for something like GetBackers and the answers I got were something like:
"You sure mean Fruits Basket, don't you?"
Me: "..." ¬_¬ (I was tempted to take B/G cosplayers and brought them to that stand)
In general everything was just great! Even the exhibition of this year was interesting: Subcultures in Tokyo
. Looking around, it was easy to say that Gothic-Lolita look was the most successful here (I found a very beautiful pair of long black wickerwork gloves <3).( General view ) ( Tokyo subcultures )( Some cosplays )
