FanimeCon 2010 Report: Part 2 - Thursday (Day Zero)

We begin this report with trying to get everything together on Wednesday while working one more day while waiting to see where Ryan and Lucas are as they drive up from Los Angeles. Since they left late due to heavy traffic, they didn't get up to Sacramento until like 1 in the morning, and then we got an early breakfast from Sherri's near my house.

We left Sacramento at 8 in the morning to pick up Tom in San Rafael. It was crazy drive up because all the rain was passing through but we made it there around 10. We then went to San Francisco's Japantown to secure the Ouran wallscroll for the panel (which later I realized I shouldn't have, but that's for later) as well as FLOW CDs. With that, we leave for San Jose pretty quick, even if we did stop by M5 Industries, aka the home of Mythbusters.

We got to San Jose pretty quick, and I was able to check-in before 2. I found out we were on the 10th floor, one floor down from where I was last year. I set up the laptop before heading down to the pre-reg line at 2:30pm, which meant we had a two and a half hour wait, but it didn't seem as long as I had a chance to catch-up on my podcasts, read the USA Today, and play some cards.

After we pick up our badges, we went to get some last-minute food and supplies. After that, Ryan puts on his Philippines from Hetalia after wearing Rin from Shuffle! and carries around the flag for a bit giving a small taste of what was to come on Sunday.

By then, Swap Meet was open and we looked around the Gaming room for some deals. Ryan found some good figures, and I got my Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition strategy guide for a cheap price. We were supposed to go to Johnny Rockets with the small Hetalia group that was forming, but by then they had closed. So, it was the Ramen dinner and to rest up before the real part of the con began.
