Anime Expo 2008 Video Diary – Day 3

This day covers both the Shokotan concert, my successful signing with her, and the Masquerade. This year’s Masquerade was unexpectedly short, as many groups apparently dropped out at the last minute. However, both an independent group from Anime Souffle and the neighboring Orange County anime club scored high ranks–OC group actually won! It was quite a night, and I didn’t even come close to using all the footage I have from the Masquerade in this one.

Well, just one more day left to put together, plus a reduced version of the Panel and a performance from AX Idol 2008, Pamela Moss. Stay tuned!
