I’m usually pretty lazy about these write-ups and give up after one post. So let’s aim for getting all this shit done by Friday, otherwise my motivation will disappear.
Key players of this con:
Dark_Sage. As you know, Dark_Sage is Dark_Sage.
SoupRKnowva. He fansubbed like once. I go to a lot of cons with him because I know he’s cool to hang with and is always DTF.
Amber. Soup’s friend. This probably isn’t her real name, but fact-checking would take time.
Will_Smith. He’s in gg and FFF and… well, I guess I don’t really know what other groups he’s in. Never asked. The important thing is that he wears a scarf. More to come on that later.
4:45 Welcome to Columbia
Yep, shit was just as cold as my homeland of Minnesota. RIP my warm paradise dreams.
5:15 Airport -> Hotel with Soup and Amber. We checked in and scored a third-floor room (lowest floors are the best floors).
The room wasn’t Naruto themed, so I was a bit disappointed, but at least the carpeting was nice.
6:00 Met up with Will_Smith to watch the Ano Hana movie at 7:00. He was unfortunately not as black as I expected, but that fucking scarf… More on the scarf later, since there’s a superb story behind it.
7:00 Ano Hana movie time. There were about 40 people in the audience, which is a completely unnecessary fact.
Goddamn, the movie’s pacing was so fucked I can’t believe anyone with a soul actually greenlit it. Pretty hard to feel any emotions other than boredom when you’re watching a 90-minute recap episode.
Will left for about 15 minutes to get more beer. I’d have followed him, but I was trying to count all the Anaru ass shots in the film and didn’t wanna miss any. (There were 3.)
From post-movie talk, nobody liked it. If you’re hyped and wanna watch this shit, I suggest you temper your expectations, cuz the only tears you’ll be shedding will be over the $16 you just wasted on a ticket.
8:30 Cap’n Will took us on a journey to find a Five Guys. Unfortunately, he forgot there was a hockeyball game that night, so we ended up caught in traffic for about an hour. ‘Least we had time to listen to a Bloc Party album, so it wasn’t a complete loss.
9:30 Five Guys
We zipped into the pre-reg line and got ourselves some badges. Only instead of badges we got some shitty wrist bands.
Will had bounced by this point since he hadn’t pre-regged, and nothing was going on, so we decided to head back to the room and get a start on panel planning.
11:00 Panel planning
We figured out which panels we wanted to hit up on Friday/Saturday/Sunday (there weren’t many) and then went to sleep. It was uneventful; no one died. Friday had a bit more activity, though. Ain’t saying it’s scarf-related, but…
