International Fan Festival Toronto 2019

For those who are unaware, IFFT is a new anime convention that ran for the first time this year (with a previous IFF event in Osaka) and completely upstaged Anime North as far as the more “hardcore” crowd goes. Now, I’ve never actually attended AN despite it being the local con… I went to offkais outside of it, but I’ve never purchased a pass or gone inside the actual venue, because there wasn’t enough incentive to. A few of the iM@S seiyuu guests were tempting, but still didn’t push me to drive alllll the way to the venue (which isn’t even in Toronto) and buy a pass for just one thing.

Meanwhile, IFFT’s Japanese guest list was: Kawasumi Ayako, Ueda Kana, Shitaya Noriko, Sugiyama Noriaki. TAM and Akai Ryuusei. DJ Kazu. Suzuki Konomi. NAKAJIMA MEGUMI!
I didn’t go to AX the year that Mamegu was there… so the moment they announced her, I knew I was going to do whatever it took to get those concert seats–and that ended up being the platinum pass at $400, which sounds like a lot at first, but it’s in CAD and it’s way cheaper than AX premier. It also ended up providing a LOT of value, but I’ll get into that later because I should probably talk about the actual events first.

Uh… I guess I will put the summary tag here lol, before I end up with a wall of text on the blog homepage.

AX / AWM 2018

Got pretty good mileage out of my premier badge this year. Bless indoor panel lines.

Wow it was finally hype enough for me to start writing about again!!!

FFXIV Fan Festival Vegas 2016

More worthwhile blog over AX because I don’t actually do anything at AX

(Not going to do the usual day formatting because I kind of want to talk about the actual panels and whatnot instead of all the random other things that happened)

AX 2014

This is going to be the dumbest post ever and my memory is hazy so I really hope I didn’t mix up any names
