HEATHEN NON-ANIME FAN! ^_^ Kidding, totally. Make sure you ranger fans check out the parody greatness that is the Shinesman anime.


Already bought Shinesman long ago.

And I am a total anime fan, I just came to Youmacon for the rangers, not the anime.

Well, there were a lot of memorable moments during Youmacon for me. I'd say the most powerful one, being a Christian myself, was getting to meet and talk in-depth with Vic Mignogna, Caitlin Glass, and Johnny Yong Bosch about their faith and their work in the anime industry :) (they signed my pizza box! XD ).

~ I also had a lightsaber-to-Ginsu sword fight with Kristina Sa (...who also signed my pizza box!)
~ being an attention **** and passing out the CD's with my AMV's ^_^; (I got to talk to some awesome folks that way!)
~ I know some might have thought it iffy, but I enjoyed "Your Favorite Anime Sucks". Their knowledge of anime astounded me...then they proceeded to make fun of it >_>
~ I sung the Samurai Pizza Cats theme song a capella and scared/impressed the karaoke room! XD
~ seeing a lot of, lot of impressive art in the Artist Alley! That was a concentration of some really great art and artists!
~ getting to play Soul Caliber 3 against a member of Eyeshine, then Johnny himself!
~ buying a Megal Gear Solid 2 figure with the dread it might have been Raiden, but then turning out to be Snake himself! X3
~ I was in Mobile Fortress Polysester for a bit >_> I have a picture I'll get on here eventually! Who knew a fort could groove?

This con rocked hard! =) I haven't been happier with a con for quite some time! The size of it all might have been small, but the content provided within was fantastic. Great job, and I hope to make it next year! ^_^

So you were the pizza cat?

I recall in a drunken haze you and Sam Fisher hanging out in our room friday night. What a time that was.

I remember that! That was with my lightsaber!! That was part of the coolest part of the weekend for me. So many people wanted to try out my lightsabers and duel with them! Winning my first ever cosplay award as Hunky no Jitsu Tenten was the best! And the fact that it was awarded by a fellow staffer and Naruto crossplayer was pretty cool. That and seeing Chicago clean up at the Masquerade all made for a helluva weekend! The best had to be Sunday night's festivities after the con was over! For those who were there, you know what I'm talking about!

He may have been Solid Snake, but he'll be Sam Fisher in our hearts forever.

Sorry, I took down the picture when I thought the forums were gone for good. There's your fort!

...and everyone knows Snake could easily take Fisher, how could you compare? >_>
