After coming home from yet another hard day’s work, don’t you want yourself a good sandwich, a nice drink, and an awesome anime title to watch? Well look no further my friends, cuz’ we’ve got just what you’ve been looking for! Looking for a lesser known anime title about helping your fellow man as well as giving joy, good will, and peace on earth? Then Tokyo Godfathers will be the answer to your prayers.
Wanna know what we’ve got cooking in the D&A kitchen? Then check out what’s on the menu on D&A’s Talkin’ Snack! Just as we’ve mentioned and said in our last post, we’ve just come back from Zenkaikon in Lancaster, PA. We met some new friends as well as some of our fans that have supported us throughout the (almost) year and a half that the blog has been going. Toonami T.O.M. Steve Blum and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn was there to add to the con’s excitement, plus all the wonderful panels, workshops, video games, cosplay, and late night DJ parties that you can handle!
The month of May has finally arrived, and that means some awesome anime cons to look forward to in May, which we will have on the blog/site before the week is out. Also, we’ve got a new highlights video from Zenkaikon that’s going to be posted on our youtube page REAL soon! As for now, we thank all of the awesome people that have helped us with our highlights video, as well as taken pictures with us! See you all at the next con! 😉
After just coming back from Zenkaikon in Lancaster, PA we gotta say that our first time going to this anime convention, has been awesome! We did have just a little bit of trouble getting Uber set up but nevertheless we prevailed, and was able to go to this awesome anime con as part of our mini anime convention tour!
Upon our arrival we were welcomed with open arms by the staff as well as all the lovely con goers from the local area, as well as from the surrounding areas like York, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and everywhere else. (MD, NY, TX, etc.) We met up with some of our biggest D&A fans who have been following us around this tour, and they have been awesome to us! We even got to meet the legend himself Steve Blum, who is behind many of our favorite childhood shows that we’ve watched back in the early 90’s.
The atmosphere we’ve gotten from this con felt like many of the anime convention of the past years, or course that’s not to say that the current ones are bad, cuz’ they’re pretty awesome too!
We definitely see ourselves coming back to Zenkaikon next year, only this time we’ll make sure we book our hotel inside the convention center a few months in advance. (The one we stayed in a block from the con wasn’t too bad.) It’s probably too early to make this announcement but we’ve already got some locations/stops in mind for our 2018 tour; most of which are returning stops with a few new ones along the way.
If you missed us at this con, don’t worry, you can catch us at our next con. (Which will be listed on our Con Appearances page.)
