Anime Boston 2014: Wrap

This is the JUST BE FRIENDS: Multiple Camera Angles editions version of Anime Boston 2014 recap.

The mightiest of blades

I think it’s all about expectations. Anime Boston is a familiar creature to me at this point. I recognize its staffers. One of them even recognize me! So it’s all about adjusting the chemistry, the makeup.

Japan Trip 2014 Clippings

Model M

The TL;DR version of my 13700+-word post. And more! But you know, TL;DR version of something that big is still by no means short. I don’t do short?

Happy birthday Yayoi! And INSTANTLY this picture summons the FEELS from IM@S SSA. Just like that. This picture is over 9000 words. So you see how it goes.

Oh, there are also a bunch of non-IM@S things. Notes.

Anime Boston 2014: Day 2 JAM Edition

Thanks, Lantis

I’m about an hour-and-half from their press session but I want to just doc some bullets from their lives.

Well, I missed their fan panel, which was a mixed thing although you can still pull some joke points out of it. Anyway.

Fukuyama is as awesome as you expect. JAM Project with and without him make a huge difference. Because who would go grab my friend’s king blade half way through a song LOLOL. Also, at the end of day 2’s SKILL he threw a pineapple about 10 feet high and caught it bare handed. How he got a pineapple is a mystery (well a fan brought it up to the stage).

The turnout was okay at Boston, I’d say maybe ~2000 for the proper concert and ~1000 for the second concert. The low day-two turnout probably has to do with how the show starts at 11pm and ends at 12:30am. But because of this it means the ticketing thing is bull and you can get tickets at any time during the con so LOL. The main auditorium seats maybe 5000-6000, including the balcony.

There are laid-back balcony seats. I think it’s always cool.

Some VGO/Berkley VIPs (friends of Asa-nee and the con I think) got the center aisle seats on day 2, but LOL there were two JP girls that went balls when Dani came out for his OP solo. Anyway. There were a few people who ran up and gave flowers to everyone at the end too.

Set lists here:

MASK with a live band and that bass solo OMG HOLD ME.

Anime Boston 2014: Day 1

The concert was awesome. This dealer room’s booth took my money.

Thanks, Lantis

Not as cool is the whole AnimeJapan is happening and I’m missing it from the internets part. But what’s even better than a JAM Project concert? Another JAM Project concert, even if they go solo (especially they go solo).

So, what’s next? Not much. Just panels and press crap and line con things. Hopefully I’ll do a final recap here once I get home.

If you catch me, say hello! Look for the guy with the WUG pins, because I don’t think anyone else is doing that stuff.
