What do we want? ANIMEGACON!

Las Vegas (NV, USA) hosted an incredible ANIMEGACON 2013 from 14th to 16th of June. Simply amazing. People enjoyed activities like Friday night live where bands “Night Club” and “Eyeshine” livened up the evening. Also there was the famous Masquerade (Avianna, Carlos de Santiago, Jez Roth, Johnny Zabate as judges), a competitive event where costumed skits that range from comedy to dramatic fight scenes are presented to an audience and judges. Masquerade's winners were Team Magpie (Brian Polak and Heather Irete) who won a $2502 award. Moreover, Jennifer Cihi (singing voice of Sailor Moon) sang for the anime's fans and did an awesome performance. Other activities were Cosplay lookalike contest (photoshoot by Anna Fischer with Linda Lee and D-Piddy for winners), Japanese Fashion show, anime vs comic heroes rave (with DJ Jinrei, DJ Bryan and Jeri Lee as a go-go), EGL (Elegant, Gothic, Lolita) tea exchange & social, song idol search (Johnny Yong Bosch, Mark Brooks, Jennifer Cihi as judges), videogaming tournaments (Street fighter, Tekken, etc) and card games (Magic, Yugioh). Especial menction for guest Steve Blum (voice of “Spike Spiegel” from Cowboy Bebop among many others). As a conclusion, we are proud of this event. What do we want?
