Motaku Madness

So as I mentioned in my last post, I am heading to Motaku, an anime convention in Kansas City next weekend on Friday and Saturday.  So far it doesn't look like it will be as frantic as Tokyo in Tulsa was (not complaining, just an observation.  That weekend was exhausting to say the least), but it should be fun.  Even though I live in Missouri, I haven't been to Kansas City in a couple of years, so this will be fun and interesting.  Voice actors Chris Cason and Tia Ballard will be there, so I'm getting some things to be signed by the both of them.  There aren't a lot of panels I am planning on going to until I see some more information on a few I'm on the fence with, so at least I won't be running around like a chicken with my head cut off like Tokyo in Tulsa.

Funny fact, the hotel where Motaku is being hosted and I'm staying at is the same hotel I stayed at for a national competition called Skills USA.  At least I know where some places to eat are located, and I know there is a semi-sweet arcade downstairs.

One thing I really need to post on is the conventions I went to this year.  Arkansas Anime Festival, Tokyo in Tulsa, and now Motaku.  Sadly, Motaku is my last planned con to go to this year, and probably won't be going to another con until February (Might go to one in October, but the anime section there is small.  It is more of a gaming convention).  So at least I'll have time to write these up before next year's wave of cons happens.

I'm also not planning on going to all the same cons again next year.  I will probably drop either Motaku or Arkansas Anime Festival for another one somewhere else.  My goal is to go to as many different ones as possible before I get tied down with adult responsibilities.  I also know there is a fall Arkansas Anime Festival con in the fall, but I doubt I will be able to make it, unless they manage to lock a guest in that I actually really want to meet (Seriously, if any cons have Luci Christian, Leah Clark, Kari Whalgren, or a few others "on my list" I will definitely change my mind).  I am looking into other nearby venues to get my social geek on.

So Hopefully you can expect some neat-o posts on my convention experiences in the future on here.  Thankfully work will be a little less demanding for a spell, so I will hopefully be able to commit more time for anime and posting on here.
