There's mecha and moe and Madhouse everywhere! Just looking at the photos has made me giddy. Good job.

^^ Shugo Chara!

Other than that I didn't recognize much...

I've never been to a convention, even here in the U.S... I wonder if I'd like it.

Good times,Most conventions are set up alike,This looks like the old E3 conventions.I would go and pretend" I big business man"They would then run your ID card through a register and reply "Domo" There was more displayed than just Videogames there.This Anime Fair looks fun.I bet If you said you had seen any of these through Fansub,you would probably get a Kendo stick beatdown.Razz
Whoever snapped these pics,good job on capturing the Illustrations,some us really enjoy this hard work. Anime smile Illustrations are a big plus for me.It looks like Soul Eater is going to be a big hit,I recognized CHI's Sweet Home and Mnemosyne.Shugo Chara!,Death Note,Detective Conan and some other rare collectibles.I haven't read up on Real Drive yet,heard some good things though.I'm also going to check out Tokyozeroku.com.

Wow, that looked like so much fun! It didn't look very busy overall, though ...

The Ryuk from Death Note statue and Gurren Lagann booth were the highlights! :]

Those pictures were from the business days.

Wait till you see today's pictures. They make Times Square on New Years Eve look like a ghost town.

Tch... You ain't seen nothin' until you've been to comiket.

I was at TAF on saturday and was like: The line's only this long? Awesome! I could even move freely in the hall, generally, instead of being swept along in the flow!
Well, I guess that's the difference between TAF with 20,000 people per day and comiket with 200,000 people per day (although to be fair, comiket uses all 3 giant halls instead of just 1).

Getting a spot to watch the main stage events was hard, to be fair, but I really didn't care too much about that.
Got to see the voice actors for One piece make fools of themselves which totally was worth going.

Great pics, ANN. But there's one thing that's killing me....

I was stunned when I noticed the image of Giovanni from Night on the Galactic Railroad. Went almost giddy when I saw there was a whole booth devoted to the film. I mean, this is THE film that drove me into my semi-otaku state....

But what's it all about? Can anybody translate? I noticed there's another picture in the "Fliers" section, with a website, but it didn't help. Aaaaaaa!
