Kawaii Kon 2006


Watch the video

This weekend, I went to Kawaii Kon, an anime (Japanese animation) convention here in Honolulu, HI at the Ala Moana hotel.  This was my first time at a convention.  Met a lot of new people and saw a lot of neat costumes.  Do you know which one I am?

 Just a side note: This video is a bit long (around 4 minutes), but I think well worth the watch :-)

The sad thing is that I know what characters those people are dressing up as. Mainly I recognise the Naruto ones. I was a Naruto fan far before it was slaughtered in dubbing by cartoon network. If you like anime go to www.narutochaos.com and www.bleachportal.net. Bleach and Naruto are probably two of the best animes ever created (and I've watched a lot). I recogmend bleach though because it's much more mature in it's plotline.

I saw that Jiryra the pervert hermit was there. Funny.

That looked like fun. Nice song too! I have never really gotten into Anime, I don't think Sazae-San counts...that is pretty the only Japanese cartoon I have ever watched! Some of the songs are great, as you know I can't sing at all, however, karaoke, I have been with a handful of Japanese folks who know plenty of the older anime songs, it is a blast to hear them sing the songs out, very cute/high energy/silly...
I don't think 4 minutes is that long...As you know, I sometimes make 10 minute vlogs...if I feel it is worth the watch a longer vlog is by no means a bad thing!!
Come to Japan!! I am not sure how free I will be however, if you are my neck of the woods I will be sure to make a serious effort to meet up!! (At this moment, my chances of making it to San Fran are looking really slim)
