Well, this weekend was the Midwest's best (in my own opinion, naturally) Japanese Animation convention. I worked on the costume contest, and despite a lot of griping from some very vocal contestants, the crowd loved it. I have to admit, anime fandom has gotten much more pleasant to look at. There are a lot more cute women and men at the conventions. it has it's problems, sure, but it's good overall.
This is also why I also seemed to miss all sorts of stuff over the weekend. I should really remember to pick up the newspaper more often instead of just going with online editions.
