Hey all, It seems that somehow we survived Otakon 2005. I'm sitting here getting ready to head back home, and i'm actually looking forward to the nine hour drive :) Hey, i like to drive, it's relaxing :P
Otakon 2005 went really well, i think. It looks like people had a really good time. Our booth really worked out well, and Seraphim did a bang up job on pulling everything together. As for me, even tho I felt like the Naze Nani panel was more like Piro's Howling Disaster than the more slick show i had hoped for... people seemed to enjoy it enough, and in the end thats what matters. If you were at Otakon 2005, and I either had a chance to see you and sign/draw stuff for you, or if you came to the panel, or if you were kind enough to purchase stuff from us - thank you, it was a lot of fun seeing everyone, and having a chance to connect with fans makes me feel like maybe i'm doing ok with Megatokyo after all. ^^;;
One of the best things about the con that i've heard is that the Artist's Alley was a huge success this year, and everyone had a really good show. I was very disappointed that i was never able to make it over to it (it's on the opposite side of the convention from where i was, and i just never could make it over - in retrospect, i should have tried to go over friday night :( Anyways, i'm glad everyone seemed to have a good show.
It's always fun to do conventions, but I am looking forward to getting home. Next comic will go up wedneday and we can start to really dive into chapter 7 :)
