ANIMEJAPAN 2016

AnimeJapan is the biggest animation event in Japan where companies will set up booths to showcase and announce upcoming shows. This year Lost Link and Seagz visited the event with the intent to tag team video coverage. Although it was nowhere near as busy as Comiket, over 135 thousand attendees were strolling around the halls of Tokyo Big Sight.

Niconico Chokaigi 2014: Sumo, Knights and Zombies!

adventure

Mostly I’ve been attending conventions to film the cosplay scene but Niconico was an event I wasn’t even sure had cosplay. I heard about it from a friend and looking it up online I could only discern that it was an event aimed at making people smile. So I decided to check it out and soon discovered that not only was there cosplay but also many, many other things to see. Most Japanese conventions are largely spectacle with big booths to check out upcoming attractions and buy merchandise. While they’re not nearly as social as America’s, it’s still fun to check out the interesting displays. And that’s where Niconico surpassed all of the Japanese events I’ve attended thus far.

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.

Katsnowcon Videos!

Well, after struggling through snow storms, jet lag, colored contacts and rotten pizzas, we’re back from the other side of the world. We’ll save most of the stories for our upcoming Katsucon review video but just know that flying to cons from half way around the world definitely has its draw backs. Still, it wasn’t without some fun and here’s some videos to prove it. Steadicam love:


Rescue the Princess! to Retake Katsucon XX!

Rescue the Princess! loved Katsucon so much that they’ve decided to collectively blow all their money and fly down from Japan to return this February! So far b-rock and Lost Link are hard at work constructing outfits and Seagz, Xinity and Phrank are being lazy.

Lost Link is also eager to continue playing with his new toy and you can check out some of the talented people he may be filming with below! Rumor has it that our GOOD PAL Ackson may be out of the picture this year shoving MLZ to the forefront as RtP’s new ETERNAL videography rival.

So keep your fingers crossed for good weather and bring on the Gaylord!

Comiket 85 Cosplay Video!

Winter Comiket was a lot more comfortable than summer with beautiful weather all three days. And since it wasn’t 140 degrees, the bigger costumes came out to play. Take a look at our first steadicam music video. It was challenging to film in the swarms of people but Lost Link managed to capture a few shots of the cosplay crowd. Winter Comiket review video to come.
