Yeah what they didn't say that the whole "Big Site" was like a huge oven. People were dropping like flies.

The shops and am/pm made a killing selling cold stuff.

The dates in the article are wrong. They refer to the 21st (which is Tuesday) in the past-tense. Anime smile;;; The event was from August 17-19, not 19-21.

I was there all day on Saturday. It was hot, but overcast at least. Friday and Sunday were unbearably hot.

Alot of manga, lots of crowds. The COSPLAY was pretty cool, but across the street to the north west of the monorail station was another COSPLAY event. This one allowed for the weapon props to be used, and the COSPLAY numbers there were just as much as in the outer exhibition area. Plus it was indoors and alot cooler.

This is my third event, and it was alot of fun. I didn't dress up this time, it was just too darned hot.

I did get a ton of photos of course...Smile
