So I was going to add this stuff to my Anime Expo 2015 Thoughts post but it got too long and I decided I’d make a part 2 (kind of). And here it is! What did I buy at Expo?
Well, there were some books, pins, and a DVD. And by some books I mean a lot. I had to put most of my clothes in my brother’s bag on the way back because both my bags were too packed carrying my junk >.> haha
I also got a lot of Freebies which I thought was pretty cool!
Books: I recently quit my job at the library sometime this May, which means no more books at discounted prices! Which sucks because now I actually have to pay full price…except not really! At AX I found a lot of great titles for about $3 – $5 and a few for $10 so my wallet was (for the most part) very happy (and so was I because then I could buy more)!! Oh, and I also got a free book from the Yen Press Panel (totally amazing)!
- The Science of Attack on Titan
- Attack on Titan: Before the Fall v. 3 – 4
- Attack on Titan: No Regrets v. 1 – 2
- Except that there are regrets because I already own these books…haha, I was trying to figure out what books I already had while at the con, only to have the internet backfire. I was pretty sure I didn’t have No Regrets but it looks like I was wrong…what to do with them, hmmm
- Attack on Titan v. 13 – 14
- Noragami v. 1 – 5
- So, I know I mentioned this somewhere (I can’t remember where) but I dropped this series back when it was barely coming out. I couldn’t handle the sudden lovey-dovey eyes that Yato gave Hiori so I stopped reading after the Rabo (?) and V/Kazuma crisis…and then I went and bought the books…because the art is so pretty…and I really liked the first few volumes, haha. I might pick it up again
- The Demon Prince of Momochi House v. 1
- After I bought this book and read it I was just like, can I get an exchange or refund? I kind of didn’t really like this book…haha
- Log Horizon v. 1
- I don’t know why but I thought this was the light novel but it’s the manga…oh well, I like it either way!
- Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days v. 1
- Kobato v. 5
- Now I just need volume 6!! Read these a while back and totally loved them (hence the reason I’m looking for them)
- Bakuman v. 9
- Alice in Murderland v. 1
- This was my freebie book from the Yen Press Panel! I started reading it and it’s actually pretty interesting though I wouldn’t say it’s the best Alice in Wonderland based series.
- Little Butterfly v. 1 – 2
- I’ve been wanting to read this for a while now but I only owned volume 3 so I couldn’t…but now I can!!
- Yellow v. 2 – 4
- I read these online, loved them and then bought them! (Not to mention that Makoto Tateno is a guest at Yaoi-con this year! I also got more books by this author, like the next two titles, haha)
- Yokan Noise v. 2
- A Murmur of the Heart v. 1
- Alice the 101st v. 1, 3 – 4
- Oh god I love this series but I hate that it’s playing with my little fujoshi heart!! Like, is this a yaoi or is it not?! It’s basically about a kid named Aristide (aka Alice) who gets accepted into this really prestigious music school but he’s dubbed a ‘special case’ because he can’t read music (but plays well) and because he was accepted after the 100 student cap.
- You Will Drown in Love v. 2
- Twittering Birds Never Fly v. 2
- Tale of a White Night
- Does the Flower Blossom? v. 1
- Countdown 7 Days v. 3
- Another book I already have…haha
- Your Story I’ve Known
- The Man Who Doesn’t Take Off His Clothes v. 1 -2
- Ai No Kusabi: The Space Between v. 2 – 3, 5
- Gentle Cage
- Yen Press Light Novel Sampler (Freebie)
Misc Purchases/Freebies: I really wanted to buy some posters but I didn’t have enough money and then I’d have to think of how to get them home, so I just didn’t get any. Maybe at the next con!
- Haikyuu season 1
- It’s been forever since I last went and bought some anime but when I saw this I just had to buy it! My two purchases before this had been Attack on Titan and Tokyo Ghoul s1 (but I got them on itunes not hardcopies).
- Pins from the Artist Alley!
- I got both A/Z pins they had (Inaho & Slaine, kekeke), one Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun pin (the really cute guy Mikoshiba), and two keychain thingies from Haikyuu!! (Kageyama and Hinata) and Seraph of the End (Yuu and Mika). Obviously, I got these pins for certain reasons, kekeke~!
- Pins from the dating game booth! (Freebie)
- Shikishi (is this what it’s called? I could be 100% wrong, haha) (Freebie)
- Got this when my brother and I walked into a panel accidentally (thinking it was a Crunchyroll panel). The character is apparently from Clannad (which I haven’t watched but now I want to watch is because of the AMV contest that they had, intrigued).
- A t-shirt with a cool looking cat! Of course, this was taken by my mom once she saw it…haha
- Crunchyroll Fan (Freebie)
- This fan was SO helpful! I totally love it and had it with me all the time! It was especially helpful when outside, haha
- Ponycan Calendar! Only recognize the Magical Boys Show, haha (Freebie)
- Martha Asahi postcard! Guest of Honor at Yaoi-con ♥ (Freebie)
- Two samplers, VIZ and Kodansha Comics (Freebie)
- I actually got the VIZ sampler at ACEN? I think but yeah. They recorded me while browsing through it and I was just like >///> haha. Inside is a sample of Twin Star Exorcists: Onmyoji, So Cute It Hurts!!, Tokyo Ghoul (amazing!), Ultraman, My Hero Academia, The Demon Prince of Momochi House, and Maid-sama! As for the Kodansha Comics sampler we have Attack on Titan, AoT: Before the Fall, Noragami, Vinland Saga, Inuyashiki, Your Lie In April （˶′◡‵˶）
There were probably more Freebies but these were the ones I could find among my mess of things, haha. I also wanted to show these little postcards I got but I can’t find them! T___T I don’t remember where I put them…
Well now, I’ve got a lot of books to go through before the next con (๑￫‿￩๑)
