Anime North 2010 - Day 01  

After seven hours of sitting on the bus and another two hours of getting lost to get to the convention (the bus drops us off in the heart of downtown, whereas the convention is on the outskirts of town), we finally made it there!! YAAAY~!

What probably amused me the most was this picture... And I thought us Montrealers were bad...

My First Fun-Filled Day at Anime North (I'm trying to insert a LJ cut here, but I think it's failing... ^^;;)

Yup, that's why Montreal's transit system is far superior to Toronto! Though I must admit, they're a lot nicer... It appeared that everyone knew where we were going except us!! It's true!! It got to the point where people would look at us (and our luggage) and would know we were tourists XP We made the bus driver happy to the point where he dropped us off very close to our hotel! It was a stop that wasn't even en route... He did like a stop between stops (which is only offered by public transportation at night time for females) <33 We were so amused that in Toronto they have streets called "Disco Road" XP What do us Montrealers have?! French and poutine... No cool street names...

On our way to lunch, we found a Sailor Moon photo shoot and I was really happy since my very first anime was Sailor Moon!! <33 *sings the theme song off key*

HAHAHA ^^;; I basically slowly caused the death of starvation to my three other friends that I went with because I kept getting way too distracted because of all the cosplayers!! I've taken quite a few pictures already... But fear not! Eventually we went to eat (after I was dragged away).

IT WAS REALLY YUMMY~! I'm completely blanking on the name of the restaurant that we ate at, BUT IT WAS SO GOOD!! I think this order was called the "Dragon Bento" <33 It had sushi, sashimi, tempura, miso soup, rice, beef teriyaki <33 I want to go there for sure again tomorrow!!

However, Tessa is skeptical since she's become afraid/paranoid about trying novelty foods because of one of her former friends stalkers She was boring and only had the udon noodle soup since she deemed that was safe. I was really happy with my purchase <33

Speaking of purchases... *coughs* I spent quite a large sum of money already on the first day of the convention... And it was all mangas... ^^;;
. Meru Puri (4)
. Milennium Snow (2)
. Tail of the Moon (15)
. Time Stranger Kyoko (15)
. Wild One (10)
. Yume Kira Dream Shop (1)
. Yurara (5)
. Some other mangas that I can't remember for the life of me ^^;;

I promise to take a picture of my box of manga when I can! I swear I will!! And all of you will go: O____o;;

My goal this year is to catch ALL the Pokemon that I can find at the convention!! I will become the greatest pokemon trainer of all time!! I saw a Syther, but it ran away from me (TT___TT) And I was so close to catching it too!! Mark my words, I will find Syther again!!

I’m going to go to sleep now… I need to get up again in a few hours to head off to the anime convention for its second day… WHICH STARTS IN A FEW HOURS!! *flails*

Re: Manga

Most of the mangas were purchased during the anime convention because if you bought them in bulk, they gave discounts on what you got (such as buying 5 mangas at USA cover price and the sixth one is free, not only that but after you spent a certain amount of money, there would be additional discount percentages off).

The manga booths that I bought the majority of the manga were from The Beguiling and Hairy Tarantula :3
