To start off this blog it was suggested to me that I do a recap of this year's Animazement convention. It is held yearly on Memorial Day weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina (some early years were held in Durham). I've been attending since 2002 (I STILL kick myself that I couldn't attend in 2001, since Kotobuki Tsukasa, my favorite character designer, was there. ARG!). I haven't been to a lot of cons, but I see AZ as a special one.
