As God intended: TENGA cosplay sighted

In the greatest cosplay development since a man wore a cardboard box with "Gundam" written on the front, an A-kon attendee was seen cosplaying as a TENGA onacup. His costume was surprisingly accurate, replicating th...

Don't count Bandai out of this con season just yet

As you may have noticed, Bandai was noticably absent from every con so far this year, including North America's longest running anime convention, Project A-kon. However, in a recent e-mail exchan...

Shunya "Shunyama" Yamashita, you are my god.

For those of you who aren't aware of his art, it's time to get with the program. Potentially my favorite artist, Shunyama is known for his beautifully drawn, full figured character designs, often inspired by 1950's pinup mode...

A-Kon '09: Best and Worst Cosplay of A-Kon '09 Part 2 of 3

I bring upon you the second onslaught of both good and bad cosplay from this past weekend's A-Kon 20 from Dallas, Texas. Now we have even more cuter girls in this batch. I could've given you more if it weren't for my entire 2...

A-Kon '09: So.. there was cosplay, at least.

It was a pretty sad sight, at least I'd like to say that because honestly, there wasn't much to see. For what is the longest running Anime convention in the US, you'd expect there to be major announcements, numerous guests, a...

A-Kon '09: Day 2, Camino Q&A and the dealer room.

Saturday proved to be less than exciting, but we managed to enjoy ourselves at the con, despite the lack of major outlets and their usual announcements. We started the day going out with the kids at AnimeVice for lunch. It wa...

A-Kon '09: Legal in Japan Edition

It's 2 am and I'm here in Dallas and tired as f*ck from driving all day. You ask why I'm in Dallas? For A-Kon 20, you silly goose. The oldest running anime convention in North America, A-Kon, is celebrating its 20th year and ...

A-kon '08: AMV Contest(s)!

I've put this post off, not only because the past week has seen me running around like a monkey on acid back and forth 'cross central Texas getting ready to go back to "school" or "move" or whatever th...

Podtoid-san 60: 'This is A-kon' edition

When I look back, A-Kon 19 was a total blur. My mind is filled with random images of whiskey, sashimi, Kagami poseable figures, side boob, and more, and I can't make sense of any of it. I guess it's a good thing that we recor...

A-Kon '08: Anime Hell

This con staple took place a tiny bit late, which is not notable at itself in a huge, busy Friday-night con environment; what stuck out here was that several key volunteers and/or Anime Hell guys seemed to be sick or otherw...
