First thing I did at Comic-Con was play Smash Bros. on 3DS, beat three other guys as Greninja and won a t-shirt as a result. Great start to a convention!
Gave David Willis my business card (maybe he drunk dials?)
Optimus Prime cosplay on stilts.
The moderator of the “Writers Unite” panel: “The grass is greener on the other side because you’re standing there staring and not watering your fucking lawn.”
Met Sergio Aragones! He looks just like in his comics except his giant mustache is white now.
There’s always a lot of people proselytizing in front of Comic-con, so I didn’t turn around when I heard some kind of Biblical recitation behind me. Then I heard something like, “He will smash the forests…” “…there is no hope.” I turned around and was pleasantly surprised to see a group cosplaying as the cult of Cthulhu.
A little girl says to my girlfriend wearing her dinosaur skull mask: “I know that’s you, Matt Smith!”
At the “Ask an Agent!” panel: “I have two clients who write six plus books a year. Don’t stand in the way of romance writers. They’re going to dominate the world.”
An old man was speaking with a young woman at an L. Ron Hubbard booth. He says to her, “See that guy over there wearing the My Little Pony shirt? They’re called Bronies. They’re a kind of cult.” L. Ron Hubbard, by the way, is the creator of Scientology.
I accidentally walked into the wrong room where a Person of Interest panel was ongoing. A little girl at the mic asked Jim Caviezel, “Did you have more fun working on Person of Interest or Passion of the Christ?”
San Diego Comic-Con International 2014
I have been absent from Tumblr for the past few days, not even posting one thing, but that’s only because I’ve been to Comic-Con! It’s my first time attending and it wouldn’t have even happened without my lovely animator girlfriend, Fable. This is my first time reviewing an event rather than a piece of media. Keep in mind I’m just highlighting some of the stuff I did and enjoyed. This is the biggest comic convention in the world, after all.
Jellyfish Princess (TV, anime)
I’ve been watching a lot of anime lately. Sorry… (not sorry)
My affection for anime usually runs more along the lines of action and drama, though. “Slice of life” is the closest I get to watching something truly adorable or “kawaii” as the kids say. Jellyfish Princess is probably one of the cutest anime I’ve seen in a long time. And against all reason and stubbornness on my part, I enjoyed it enough to watch the entire series (only 11 episodes) in a couple days.
