dotcon

Dot Con is a small anime convention run by a group of dedicated anime fans through volunteer basis. The con attendees was approximately around 150-200 on Day 1 based on my estimation ^^. Despite of being a fan run anime convention, it’s severely lacking in term of organization and management.

A gloomy day for a convention

Line up for registration. Gotta love pre-reg because no line up at all

First of all, I got no con schedule at all. Rin and I were talking on how we usually schedule our day based on the con schedule information given to us at the time of registration and we totally clueless of what is happening at the con. Luckily, we managed to view the schedule and they only have one for the entire convention. although, we found out that the schedule is wrong later on ^^;;

Secondly, the con location was changed 2 weeks before it started. It was moved from downtown location to Thornhill (up town area). They do provide a shuttle bus from downtown to the Holiday Inn where the con was held, however, only 1 shuttle bus so they have to wait for 2 hours before the bus comes ^^;;.

Zack from FFXI. I believe this guy was also at the Fan Expo and AN 2008. A lot of familiar faces at this convention I must say.

The main purpose of coming to this con is here. Kurasaki Ichigo’s voice actor, Masakazu Morita, will be having a Q&A session.

dsc_1371

Masakazu Morita is answering some questions from the audience but it’s hard to pay attention to him when there is a cute translator right beside him ^^;;. We somehow managed to make him saying “Bankai” lol.

dsc_1373

He shows us what the sound effects he uses as Kurosaki Ichigo when swinging around his sword.

dsc_1374

The cute translator’s expression is just priceless.

dsc_1376

Hollow Ichigo beats up Masakazu Morita (actually no, he’s showing us what sound effects when he got punched/kicked).

Holly (Kaze-Hime) is having a Q&A about drawing.

The end of convention.

Masakazu Morita is also the seiyuu of Pegasus Seiya in Saint Seiya the Hades Chapter so he did ペガサス流星拳 (Pegasasu ryūseiken). I captured him doing it with my camera so check it out at 2:10 ^^. As someone who grew up watching Saint Seiya, this is probably the best thing ever ^^.

Loot of the Day:
