12 Days of Anime Christmas

That’s right boys and girls! It’s now December and that means Christmas (sorry to any of our Jewish followers out there). This year I will be celebrating the spirit of Christmas by starting something I am titling “12 Days of Anime Christmas”. This is something that other anime blogs like The Cart Driver (a really good anime blog everyone should check out) have been doing for a number of years now so I’ve decided to hop on the bandwagon and add Anime Afterlife Podcast to the mix. The premise for this is simple: starting on December 14th and going all the way to Christmas I will be blogging about all the things I enjoyed about this year in anime. Now this does not mean just all the airing anime from this year. This is also going to include anything non-airing I’ve watched this year, news stories, etc. It will pretty much be anything anime related. I’m looking forward to doing this little project cause there were many things I loved about this year anime-wise and I hope that all of you out there will join me in telling us what some of your favorite things this year in anime were.

Upon arriving at AX, there’s an incredibly long line for pre-registered members. Of course, it just so happens to be on a hot summer day, so that makes waiting in line for badges extra painful. There’s not much to do in line other than look at the various kinds of cosplays around you. Every once in awhile, I’d see someone dressed so heavily in costume, it makes me wonder how hard they are sweating under all those layers. Xeriko was kind enough to wait in line with me while I got my badge, and to beat his boredom he’d count nartuards dressed in the same cosplay almost every Naruto fanatic has dressed in for the past ten years.
