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 otherwise absent, and everyone did a fantastic job of coming back with things hooked up and ready to go for the huge line waiting outside. Only 100 folks at a time could fit into the room, but there was another AH scheduled for Saturday night, which was pretty wise on their part.

As their site explains, Anime Hell is simply a big ol' spectacle of weird, funny and/or nostalgic clips, such as the perv-magnet twins in the friendly film above, which needn't necessarily be anime nor hellish. Raunchy commentary and occasional ninja contests are also to be expected at any such event, including a couple of heart-warming moments I'd seen before, and one that I hadn't and thus brought me to tears of laughter and the need to stagger back to our room for a round of drinking with the Anime Matsuri people. Hit the jump for weird and/or NSFW trips into the unknown, including one not intended for people who're easily grossed out.

...Whatever the hell this was called.


The name says it all, really.


Yeah, I LOLed.
