OP Up! Anime Matsuri X Edition

0

Houston's Best Anime Con

I love Anime conventions, I am here today at Japanator because of some cool people I met up with at an anime convention. These gatherings allow fans to express their love for their favorite things in an fun environment filled with people doing the same thing. Anime Matsuri 2008 is where I first met the folks at Japanator after visiting the site religiously almost every day and the rest is history.

Anime Matsuri, the best anime convention in Houston, an anime convention that is close to my heart (and where I live) is celebrating their 10th year of bringing together fans of Japanese pop culture from anime to import car tuning to fashion. Japanator and Anime Matsuri has some history together in the past 10 years, and we will be there to cover it. 

In honor of Anime Matsuri, this week's selection for OP Up! and Week Ender will feature anime related to the convention.

So do you have a convention you love and/or something about a convention you love? It can be a memory or an event or ANYTHING. SHARE ABOUT IT IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

"Flyers"

Anime: Death Parade

Director of the Anime Death Parade, Yuzuru Tachikawa, will be attending Anime Matsuri. Tachikawa will also be joined by Animation Director and Character Designer of Death Parade Shinichi Kurita.

 

"Cras numquam scire"

Anime: Dantalian no Shoka

Death Parade's Director, Yuzuru Tachikawa, also directed several episodes of Dantalian no Shoka, which I enjoyed a lot. Sadly, I don't think there will be any more seasons of the show. I love Victorian era mystery anime with some mysticism and fantasy.

 

"Black Rock Shooter"

Anime: Black Rock Shooter

Black Rock Shooter is one of my favorite characters due to her design and her origins from a song and fan art. So when I saw that Anime Matsuri's Convention Chairwoman Deneice Leigh got some great BRS full body car decal stickers on her car Itasha to promote Anime Matsuri, I was beyond overjoyed.

 

"Motteke! Sailor Fuku"

Anime: Lucky Star

If you saw the pic above, Anime Matsuri's official Itasha used to have an awesome Lucky Star decal featuring Konata. Watch that show, it's sloooow at the beginning but great when it picks up. Don't watch the dub, Konata sounds like Bart Simpson.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
