|Anime Central 2001 - Varnishes
and Surface Layering
I find it interesting to sit down and write my review of Anime Central
2001. Last year I attended ACen 2000, and had an absolute blast of
a time. Based on past history, I expected this year's Anime Central
to truly stand and deliver. The list of guests and events, going
into the convention, did not disappoint.
Overly large crowds and a lobby under construction did remove some enjoyment.
These things aren't under convention staff control. Other elements
Coverage of Anime Central 2001 is abbreviated, with only about two-thirds
the usual coverage. Due to an incident Saturday night that led to
a serious disagreement with ACen staff, I chose not to cover Sunday in
I will not go into details, as Anime Central has attempted to make amends
for the incident. Nonetheless, I was displeased enough that shooting
on Sunday was not a possibility. I apoligize to the regular patrons
of the site for the loss, and to the moments and people that deserved photographs
Still, despite problems with the convention as well as my own costume
interfering with photography, there are some deserving photos. Please
take a look.
There is the usual "Con Report" for my detailed
writeup and "Shoutouts" for my friends.
