Pacific Media Expo 2013


So it seems that I’m still very much behind on my blogging as far as series go, but there’s a post I really wanted to get in as soon as possible while my memory is still fresh.  After a long wait and suffering through lots of schoolwork and studying, Veteran’s Day weekend had arrived, and with that I could finally attend this year’s Pacific Media Expo.  This was my second time at the convention, as I had gone with friends last year after learning there would be a Vocaloid concert.  I really enjoyed the convention last year and it was very enjoyable for me this year as well.  It’s quite a small convention and it doesn’t have as much to offer as some of the really big ones like Anime Expo, but it was certainly worth going to and it being a small convention had a lot of perks in and of itself.
