Continuing last year‘s new tradition of recapping events (since — once again — I went to more events than cons), here are the ones I went to in 2015!
For the second year in a row, I started things off at the Downtown Independent! Team LA JAPAN 2015 New Year’s Celebration featured a live performance, an art show, a cosplay contest, and music by Tune in Tokyo.
Following that was the debut of Anison USA, which featured local J-pop and J-rock style bands as well as J-pop idol Haruko Momoi!
The same weekend of the Cherry Blossom Festival, my friends in Tokyo Status said goodbye to my friends in Midnight Shinigami, as they were planning to move out of state (unfortunately, their plans fell through and they wound up staying, but it was still an emotional event).
Had to say another goodbye at the end of April to my friend’s Fairytale Boutique. I was there for the beginning, so I was happy to be able to pay my respects at the end.
After the summer con season, I was happy to be able to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of one of my favorite film series, Back to the Future, by visiting Twin Pines Mall!
Every day can be a special event if you make it one! Here’s to many more in 2016!
