AnimeJapan 2014 Report!

I lugged the steadicam all the way to Odaiba this past weekend to check out AnimeJapan, a new convention aimed at being the world’s biggest anime event. This year the Tokyo International Anime Fair and the Anime Contents Expo merged into a single event where companies set up booths to showcase upcoming animations, demo new tech, put on stage shows and sell merchandise. While I mostly went to film the cosplay crowds I did spend some time walking around the 6 event halls. There was plenty to see with elaborate walk-in booths displaying all kinds of anime related goods. There was a life sized Gundam chillin in one hall with army chicks standing guard. There was a motion capture battle booth where you could wear an oculus headset and swing a sword against an opponent.

Warning: This podcast compares the anime and manga as well as offers some crazy theories into the Titan lore. Thus spoilers abound.


Anime Contents Expo 2013

Podcasts are still on hold for awhile but Lost Link did have time to stop by a convention in Chiba to film some Japanese cosplayers. Enjoy!
