OtomeJunkie's Anime North Conventions Sunday Experience

3 of the 5 Handsome Members of Awoi

Alas! The last day of my beautiful wonderful con arrived. I woke up an hour later then I wanted to because I was up a little late (5am to be exact) last night doing my post for Saturday and getting ready to check out of my hotel. I wanted to make sure that I got to the Q&A session for UMBRELLA and AWOI, so after forcing myself out of bed to shower and get my cosplay ready for the last time this weekend I inhaled some breakfast and rushed over to the Doubletree hotel to line up with the hundred other fangirls to see those beautiful faced Visual K J-Rock bands before they left to go back to Japan.

The Q&A was really fun, A lot of people had questions, both thoughtful and serious and some even funny and ridiculous. Both bands were very cute, polite, and looked like they had a lot of fun interacting with the Canadian Otaku fans. There was even a beautiful Lolita Princess(not a real princess, although I thought she was so cute that in my imagination she is a princess)  who flew out from Austrailia just to see Awoi. She even asked her question in Japanese! What a smart hime-sama! There was a lot of laughter and interesting events which included a super lucky fan getting hugs from ALL of them and one member of UMBRELLA taking his shirt off! Indeed one of the most exciting parts of my weekend!

OtomeJunkie's Anime North Conventions Sunday Experience leaving the Q&A I headed over to another panel called “The Canadian Voice Acting Industry” and to my surprise my childhood hero’s voices were present there! The Canadian Voice actors of Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars and Sailor Venus were there. It was so nostalgic listening to them talk, especially Jupiter because she has such a distinct voice. To hear their stories about their careers and what the industry was like, was priceless. I really hope they return to the convention next year – they were so happy with this convention and how they were treated and welcomed that it came to almost a shock to them.

After this Q&A I went to go get some Onigiri at the Japanese Resturant because I was starving and then headed over to the Kpop-Shinee Fashion and Dance Panel. That was fun although it was a bit unorganized. We saw a slideshow about Shinee Fashion and Brands and then had a small dance lesson of one of their songs.

I then headed over to the Dealers room one last time to spend the last of my money! I forgot that my boyfriend wanted me to buy him some ‘Crayon Shin-Chan’ comics. I ended on buying 3-5 of that series and 1-2 of a new series I found called ‘OTOMEN’ which I thought would be good. I completely regret buying ONLY two volumes because on my way home from the con I read the first one and fell in love with it completely! IT’S SO AMAZING! The moment I finished the second volume I was heartbroken inside because I couldn’t continue reading it. (I will continue this on a different review post later on.) I also bought another new one called “The Devil and her Love Song” I bought only the first volume to try it out and I haven’t had the chance to read it yet.

OtomeJunkie's Anime North Conventions Sunday Experience I rushed back to the Doubletree Hotel to line up to see the Chii Sakurabi Concert. On Friday I visited her booth and bought her CD which she signed. I listened to it that night and it was actually very good and I really liked her songs. I love concerts so I was excited to watch this one. It did not dissapoint. It was so fun and he has an amazing voice and stage presence. It was a very different atmosphere than the J-Rock concerts the day before, very cutsy Lolita style and Pop music. The energy of the audience was amazing too and we all danced in the front in unison. It was a great experience. I will try and put up as much video on this as I can although I didn’t get much because my battery died and I filled up my memory stick on the camera at this point in the day! I have become a fan of Chii because she is just so amazing.

After this I headed back to my hotel to grab my luggage and go home. The concert was the last event happening before the closing ceremonies so the convention was officially over. I miss it already, and I cant wait till next year. The galleries of all the pictures and video I took (A lot of pictures and footage!) I will put up on a later time.

OtomeJunkie's Anime North Conventions Sunday Experience I had so much fun this weekend, and I am looking forward to Fan-Expo in August. My birthday is coming up next week but I don’t think anything will ever top my favorite event every year! ANIME NORTH!
