ANIME NORTH 2011 IS OVER!!

The convention was fun to attend, but the drive going there and coming back was dreadful~

The amount of construction, pot holes, and crazy sleep deprived drivers on the road is scary...

But look at what I bought!! Here's the hotel bed before I put my purchases and after~

    

Not ALL the mangas that you see there are for me!! Half of it is actually for my three younger brothers as well as those monkeys that are laying on the pillows. They're basically slingshot monkeys!!

My driving buddy and my two other friends basically cackled as we saw the registration line-up. We all pre-registered, so we didn't have to wait in that crazy long line... Which is the mass of people that you see. We also saw a troll on this hotel room's door XD

   

Pictures of cosplayers!! I won't post all of them since it would explode all of your internetz

Cosplay Galore~ )
 
My Anime North manga list has now been updated with all the additional books that I purchased from the convention! So for those who plan on purchasing me manga books or simply want to know where I stand with my collection. CLICK HERE!

I was, however, devastated to know that TokyoPop's US distributor is out of business... WHAT ABOUT MY MANGAS?! *sobs*

The third and last day of the Anime Convention has come to an end (TT___TT)

 

What saddens me the most was that I never saw that Syther ever again since Friday!! I knew I should have caught that Syther the minute I saw it!! Maybe that Syther already belonged to another Pokemon trainer or got caught by another Pokemon trainer?! *sniffles*

 

 

On the bright side, I did find a Pokedex! I’ve never seen anyone ever cosplay as a Pokedex so I was flailingly happy to have actually found and taken a picture of her as a Pokedex!! <3

 

What made me even more flailingly happy was my lunch!! Yesterday, the Sushi Dragon (the name of the sushi restaurant that I went to on Friday) wasn’t packed since we went at 11:30AMish. (we tried going yesterday at 6PM, but it was over an hour we would have had to wait for food ^^;;)We went there at 10AM, but they were closed (apparently no one eats/wants/craves for sushi except for us). But it matters not since we were able to get in!!

 

 

Isn’t it beautiful?! I wanted to get it on Friday, but this is a special only from between 11:30AM until 3PM, when we went on Friday, it was 4PM. This doesn’t have as much as a grand name like the “Dragon bento” that I had last time. This one’s just called the “Sashimi box”. But it was really pretty and yummiful~!

 

 

And yesh, I took a picture of the green tea ice cream dessert this time!! I wasn’t able to last time because I was way too happy in having the green tea ice cream and completely forgot to take a picture of it ^^;; I only realized it when the others and I finished inhaling it down before we realized ^^;;

 

 

That’s right!! I found Waldo despite there being an insane amount of cosplayers and people who attended the convention this year!! It’s much harder when you’re in the crowd looking for Waldo, than when you have an aerial view and can see everything :3

 

 

Oh yes… This one made me do a double-look back when I walked past first… And you’ll know why… Not only was it an amazing cosplay. Not only was it crazy hot and the cosplayer was probably getting cooked… No, it was much better than that…

 

 

 

Eh?! What’s that in Bowser’s mouth you ask? Well… Maybe it's spinach?

 

 

That’s right… Yoshi got eaten alive by Bowser!! O_______________o;;

 

 

And that’s picture to take away the thought of Yoshi haven been eaten alive by Bowser! Oops! I mean a picture to show the Wall of Fail. The wall of fail is basically a wall where all the people who have lost their badges are failures because they stupidly lost their badges.  However, I am impressed that not as many people lost their badges this year since they made it something like a necklace. All the preceding years was worst because it was in a pin badge format ^^;;

 

Everyone in Toronto is so nice!! We had a really nice lady who showed and explained to us how to get to the next bus stop!! I was really happy that throughout our trip in Toronto, many Torontorians have helped us up on journey through life :3

 

Hopefully more people will help us out on our journey tomorrow and the day after when we go to the Pacific Mall. It’s a really BIG mall with many many many outlets for me to buy stuff <3 However, I will keep spending to a minimum since I’ve already spent an insane amount of money at the convention and that the space in my luggage is practically non- existent

 

d(>W<)b

...

I still utterly fail at using the LJ-cut! (TT___TT) I'm using the Rich text, but it's still not working...

Kya~!

 

My second day of my anime convention, Anime North ended off with me having a HUGE headache at the end of the day… But it was bloody worth it!! We just finished watching “Totally Lame Anime” for three hours straight… As the title explains, we watch really old and cheesy anime that’s nonsensical…  IT FRIES YOUR BRAINS OUT! d(>W<)b

 

The day started out with finding a Chocobo <3 I love the Chocobo!! It was all adorable and birdy and yellowy!

 


Second Evil Failed Day at Anime North 2010 )


The day today was spent around in the Dealer’s Gallery where they sell a whole bunch of stuff that you don’t need in life to survive. But will need to survive as an anime fanatic! I must admit, I think doing drugs would be cheaper than my obsession with Anime (and Arashi for that matter).

 

(This is only not all the mangas that I bought)


(This is all the manga that I bought <3)

Yeah… That’s right… My entire suitcase is filled with manga… ^^;; Do I regret it at the moment? No, but I’ll probably end up having a lot of trouble dragging the suitcase up the stairs and all. But these are mangas that I want! And I get a deal on them at Anime North!! *nods her head*

 

At one point or another, when Tessa and I were bored and wanted to play with our spoils from our scavenging, we sat down at a lounge thingy… And started playing with erasers. That’s right, those animals that you see (and the panda bear) are erasers (there are erasers inside the panda) <3 The backdrop of the Godzilla was something that was bought, THAT WASN'T ME! I

 

 

One of these animals doesn’t belong here! Can you guess which one it is?! They all are!! HAHA <3 You can also disassemble the eraser and plop another head or body on XP

 

 

And this was done when we went to our hotel room and I wanted to rest up a bit from all the shopping, running after cosplayers and all that walking I did today <3 Tessa says that the dog is some form of a political leader and all those animals are his body guards... Which is it's first line of defense ^^;;

 
Uwah! I is extremely sleepy now ^^;; I'll be shuffling off to bed now so that I can rest my weary body <3

CAN SOMEONE TEACH ME HOW TO USE LJ-CUT USING THE RICH TEXT OPTION?!
I click on the button, write down the "Cut Link Text" but nothing doesn't happen when I use it ^^;;

Nyaaaa~!

After seven hours of sitting on the bus and another two hours of getting lost to get to the convention (the bus drops us off in the heart of downtown, whereas the convention is on the outskirts of town), we finally made it there!! YAAAY~!

What probably amused me the most was this picture... And I thought us Montrealers were bad...


My First Fun-Filled Day at Anime North ) (I'm trying to insert a LJ cut here, but I think it's failing... ^^;;)

Yup, that's why Montreal's transit system is far superior to Toronto! Though I must admit, they're a lot nicer... It appeared that everyone knew where we were going except us!! It's true!! It got to the point where people would look at us (and our luggage) and would know we were tourists XP We made the bus driver happy to the point where he dropped us off very close to our hotel! It was a stop that wasn't even en route... He did like a stop between stops (which is only offered by public transportation at night time for females) <33 We were so amused that in Toronto they have streets called "Disco Road" XP What do us Montrealers have?! French and poutine... No cool street names...

On our way to lunch, we found a Sailor Moon photo shoot and I was really happy since my very first anime was Sailor Moon!! <33 *sings the theme song off key*



HAHAHA ^^;; I basically slowly caused the death of starvation to my three other friends that I went with because I kept getting way too distracted because of all the cosplayers!! I've taken quite a few pictures already... But fear not! Eventually we went to eat (after I was dragged away).



IT WAS REALLY YUMMY~! I'm completely blanking on the name of the restaurant that we ate at, BUT IT WAS SO GOOD!! I think this order was called the "Dragon Bento" <33 It had sushi, sashimi, tempura, miso soup, rice, beef teriyaki <33 I want to go there for sure again tomorrow!!

However, Tessa is skeptical since she's become afraid/paranoid about trying novelty foods because of one of her former friends stalkers She was boring and only had the udon noodle soup since she deemed that was safe. I was really happy with my purchase <33

Speaking of purchases... *coughs* I spent quite a large sum of money already on the first day of the convention... And it was all mangas... ^^;;
. Meru Puri (4)
. Milennium Snow (2)
. Tail of the Moon (15)
. Time Stranger Kyoko (15)
. Wild One (10)
. Yume Kira Dream Shop (1)
. Yurara (5)
. Some other mangas that I can't remember for the life of me ^^;;

I promise to take a picture of my box of manga when I can! I swear I will!! And all of you will go: O____o;;

My goal this year is to catch ALL the Pokemon that I can find at the convention!! I will become the greatest pokemon trainer of all time!! I saw a Syther, but it ran away from me (TT___TT) And I was so close to catching it too!! Mark my words, I will find Syther again!!

I’m going to go to sleep now… I need to get up again in a few hours to head off to the anime convention for its second day… WHICH STARTS IN A FEW HOURS!! *flails*
