Last Sunday I went to Otakon in Baltimore with friends from Garrison Carida, Frank Bedo, Andrew Parment and Tony Picallo.
We were made to feel very welcomed by the anime fans, which was a pleasant surprise! All I can say about the general reaction to us is "Wow!"
If interested in checkin' out some pix, here's the link to my photo-album:
The newer pix from Otakon are on the last 3 pages of my album.
