Pictures compiled from three different people. See if you can spot the we-stopped-caring-after-Friday theme. (Image intensive, obviously.)

Here's an anime picture, just in case the 3D gets to be too much for you.

If you want bigger pictures, click on the images — they’re hyperlinked to the bigger versions (that are like 3 MB a piece). If you just try to view the image itself (in Firefox, for example, doing Right Click -> View Image), you’ll get some small/fucked-up version of the image.

 

Friday

Spoiler:

I think this is the first pic any of us grabbed on Friday. Not a bad start.

We were standing in line waiting for a Pokemon panel, whereupon Will decided to ask this catgirl to perform a scene from Star Wars Episode VII.  She... gave it her best shot.

She… gave it her best shot, but I don’t think she’d ever seen drunk people before.

Will asked some more girls for Star Wars re-enactments.

Another Will pic. He was a little more drunk at this point. The Hetalia cosplayer was dying of hysterics so she didn't make the shot.

"Oh shit, Danganronpa! Better snap a pic since this is likely the only Dangan cosplay we'll see this con!" Yeah, turns out fujoshi LOVE this show.

Yeah, turns out fujoshi LOVE this show. Well, at least we got a shot of the only Super Danganronpa cosplay there.

Rule #1: Always take pics of cosplayers if they're just standing by a wall.

We caught these guys last year. If there truly is a god, I am sure crossplay was their invention.

I'm like 90% certain this is Cloud crossplay.

You thought I'd go with a "seeing double vision" joke here. You were right.

I kept seeing the hatted girl and wondering where the hell I knew her cosplay from. Turns out it's from Phoenix Wright. Asking always helps.

"Hey Dark_Sage, you do know those were the two girls from last year, right?" "Wait, which two girls?" "..." "...Oh shit." And that's when Dark_Sage realized he probably shouldn't have asked for this picture.

I caught this guy in the skyway when I was going back to the room for my charger. Apparently people had been giving him weird stares all day. Just more proof Ohayocon ain't really an anime con anymore.

It does not get more casual than this, folks. The ear gauges and retarded hand sign just perfect the picture.

These guys ran a sweet panel last year. Turns out they weren't running one this year because the panel staff wanted them to fill out a five-page application to get back in. Gotta love bureaucracy.

Saturday

Spoiler:

I don't know if she had her shoe off because that's something Mirai did in the show or if she was just tired, but I don't think Soup was conscious of the particulars by this point in the night.

This was taken around 11 PM Saturday night. Not sure what significance that statistic holds, but nothing in life is meaningless. Except for normalfags.

Junko Enoshima.

I think this is the only Junko pic any of us grabbed. So… treasure it?

Princess Peach... tennis mode or something.

I have absolutely no idea where they're from. Please say it's from an anime.

Sunday

Spoiler:

That face didn't much do it for me at first, but after a bit I finally realized Lawrence is one majestic man.

Finally, something from this season.

Pretty disappointed we didn’t have much for ya on the Saturday/Sunday front, but at least Friday was decent. I’ll be going to a few other cons this year, so let’s see if I can keep the motivation up past Friday for those.

Goodness me Darksage you are still around?, I thought you would be in prison for sexual harassment by now. :D

Dark_Sage says:

Nah, I keep it classy both online and off.

diablosfiji says:

That’s good :D, nice pics, but the Teemo hat made my days :P.

kayserlein says:

Love to see Umineko still getting the love it deserves. ONe of the greatest stories of all time (VN, not the shitty anime adaptation)

Humanity says:

Oh no, what have I done?!

Dark_Sage says:

Oh my god, the Humanity!

Dark_Sage says:

Okay, fixed. Let’s keep in mind I don’t have an auto-resizer yet.

As for that pic… I think I fixed it. Lemme go through and fix ’em all.

Humanity says:

…seriously though, when I click through the images are stretched and sideways. Is that just me?

Dark_Sage says:

Everything should be fine now. Delete your cache or try it in a different browser.

Humanity says:

It’s working fine now. Crisis averted.

Ash says:

I wonder how common it is for people to walk past someone cosplaying as Beatrice and go, “OOOOOOOOOHHH, BEATORICHE!!!”

sandoe41 says:

I would have, I just recently DL’d the series (Toybox release)

sandoe41 says:

Did the Funi group ever show up?

Anon says:

Probably asking if you ever got the chance to talk to them about the atrocious state of Nourin.

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, I did. Suppose I should get around to relaying that story. Lemme go do some Ohayocon write-ups.

LuneSave says:

Hamtaro best taro.

Alto says:

I think that is from the new season of Pretty Cure or something, but I’m too lazy to google for proof now

w0lf says:

Wait, shit. Darksage, is that you? Remember when we were supposed to meet up at NYAF like two years ago? I’m the crossdressing Tenshi in the touhou pic lol.

Dark_Sage says:

Holy shit. Yeah, I remember. Man, your cosplay was ace-tier. Soup and I weren’t lying when we said you made our weekend in Ohayocon 2013.

What’ve you been up to recently? Haven’t seen stuff from Ahodomo in a while.

w0lf says:

I think Aho is officially Ahodeado, lol. I run a relatively large touhou community now so I don’t have nearly as much time as I used to for translating. That aside, our main TSer/encoder is bogged pretty heavily in college work so that’s three of the 5-6 jobs down lol.

Good to see you’re still around in the fansub scene, though. How are things going for you in general? (Also, are you by any chance planning on going to Anime Central or AnimeNEXT?)

Dark_Sage says:

In terms of the fansub scene… well, I don’t really sub much (I do one-offs for people now). Most of my time’s spent on Crymore, and it’s going pretty fucking well.

For cons… Anime Central was shit, and I’ve never even heard of Anime Next. Sell it to me.

w0lf says:

Bad things about ACen? I haven’t been to it myself (First time going in May) but I generally hear it’s pretty good. If anything, Ohayocon gets more flak for its management and stuff. As for AnimeNEXT, it’s more like what replaced NYAF since it got “merged” with NYCC (Read: Purged) It’s a bit smaller than Ohayocon in terms of size, but it’s a pretty nice convention otherwise. Cosplays are pretty decent and there’s usually some interesting panels. The only thing it lacks is location points. It’s in the middle of New Jersey so there really isn’t much around the area. At least with stuff like Ohayocon and NYAF, you had the city to screw around in if you got bored of the con. Not sure if it’s worth your money/time to head over here though, lol. I go to it because of a group of touhou cosplayers and because it’s literally half an hour from my parents’ home.

Dark_Sage says:

All right, I might have to skip out on it then. I got four other cons that I’m thinking about hitting up: Anime North, Colossalcon, Sakura-con, and Anime Midwest (sketchy on this one; need more deets).

ACen isn’t necessarily bad. It’s just so… bland and heartless that it feels like a waste of time when it’s all over. I went last year and I doubt I’ll ever head back.

shcboomer says:

Whoa, there is a chance I will be able to see you at Sakura-con? Woot!

Dark_Sage says:

If you’re a smoking hot babe, then yes.

w0lf says:

Fair enough. Seems like the only con I might see you at is Ohayocon, then. (Assuming it’s an annual trip for you) I want to go to Sakura myself but I don’t think I can get out of school and get tickets for that, lol. I already had hell skipping afternoon classes for Thursday and the entirety of Friday for Ohayoco.

Dark_Sage says:

Well it used to be an annual trip, but after learning that they’re trying to become a general con rather than an anime con, I’m now soured on the experience and won’t be going back.

At least we’ll always have the memories of the game room together!

Uichan says:

Rob Ford will be flattered to know you came to visit our lovely city for an anime con.

Dark_Sage says:

If he’s at the con, I’ll totally do blow with him. Sounds like a fun guy.

Uichan says:

Do that, and you’ll probably get a street named after you or something.
