I’ts been more than 2 weeks and yes, I’ve been procrastinating and telling myself (I’ll do it later) so finally I’m writting about it.
Day trip to AnimeJapan 2014 event at Tokyo Big Sight in Odaiba.
The always impressive building of Tokyo Big Sight, 4 reversed pyramid and conference Tower inside, and one of the largest exhibition centers I’ve ever been. Also, pilgrimage destination in summer for the ( no offense by saying it) Otaku community attending the Comiket. Of course other events are held here all year round, I go there almost every month for any kind of events and exhibitions.
Welcome to AnimeJapan 2014!!! or not… what it seemed to be the main entrance was a fake, at least for the common ticket, the real entrance was all the way around the building, actually behind the TBS, really poor indications about it. Lucky just have to follow the flow of people going from one place to another (and actually that’s what the information point guy told me, follow the people).
After around 20 minutes going back and forth due to bad indications, and ticket counter that seemed more like a food stand at 5 minutes walk from the entrance….. Time to see this year news about anime.
The one anime that really I see as a marketing and merchandise moneymaker. Kids will go crazy with all the toys.
As usual in these events there’s a section just dedicated to cosplayers to show their skills and pose for the cameras. Most of the characters are still a mistery to me, sorry I don’t know them all.
