Today is actually Day 1 of Anime North, the largest anime con in Toronto. This year it reaches the mandatory daily cap faster than last year. I think the weekend passes sold out in about a few weeks. There are also panels on Thursday this year. I didn’t check if that was the case last year, but that might be true.
I’m going to be there throwing up some events. Mostly just going to hang out with all the other largely-single-tracked minds at the con, balancing if we can squeeze in a Nabatame autograph or panel here or there. She should be quite the fascinating character. But I’m there for Asapon.
Doing a “proper” offkai in a land far from home is otherwise going to consume all my time. Let’s see how it goes. I mean, this is the offkai at the offkai. Cosplayers might go do a formal ball thing, Producers just hang out and cry to footage of IM@S 9th Anniversary. Both pay for a ticket to go.
If you are also dropping by the con, ping me as per usual.
This is my “first” con of the year, and it would set a record for the latest start for me since a long time ago, except I actually went to Otakon Vegas, as little as I did there. I mean I literally went there for a badge on Thursday, to buy some goods on Friday (at 1 booth), and attended an autograph and meet & greet session on Sunday. Well, all is according to plan.
