Oni-Chan's Excellent Adventure @ AX 97!

Oni-chan in Kimono wic a fan

 "Konnichiwa, mina-san!  It's me, Oni-chan, bringing you up to date as to the happenings during my trip to Anime Expo 1997 at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton.

"Before I get into the nitty-gritty of the glorious three day party, I must congratulate the SPJA in their successful nabbing of some of the best minds in the field of Anime to be kidnapped- uh, I mean graciously sponsored as guests at this year's festivities.  Some of this year's standouts were: Akira Kamiya (voice of Ryo Saeba, and Shutaro Mendo), Yasuhiro Imagawa (director and writer of Giant Robo [one of the greatest OAVs ever made!]), and Hiroaki Sato & Chiyako Shibahara (creator of Key: The Metal Idol and voice of Miho in Key, respectively).

"A great time was had by all and most everybody left happy on Sunday night (except for a few people at the gripe session [which lasted two hours!!]).



See what all the fuss is about. Check out a play by play reenactment of all the rugged stuff that happened from July 3rd through the 7th as seen through the golden eyes of a little demoness just out to have a good time in the land of Anime stars and CosPlays!

 Day 2: 7/4/1997 The Beginning
 Day 3: 7/5/1997 The Middle
 Day 4: 7/6/1997 The End
 Day 5: 7/7/1997 The Return

I apologize ahead of time for the poopy quality of some of the pictures.  You see, I didn't use Kodak Gold Insta-Film and the shots I took inside the Hotel came out really crappy.  Gomen, mina-san!

And just so everyone knows, I claim no ownership of Anime Expo nor of the creation of their logo's and such.  This is just a page to show how incredibly cool this con was and to try to get as many people as possible in this world to attend it. Please, do not send me any money.  I am pimping this convention for free!  In fact, why don't you go to their site after you check out mine.  Trust me, it's good for you.

A cool journey awaits you. Go forward, young adventurer!
