Today we went to Anime Japan in Tokyo’s Big Sight, Odaiba which is located in southern Tokyo. This place is huge! The scale of it is incredible.

Anime Japan was completely not what I expected. There were so many animes I had never heard of and also my limited knowledge of Japanese meant that it was hard to find out the names of some of them. However from what I saw there are so many amazing animes to watch that just aren’t available in the UK or the US.

They also had a 50 years of anime theatre section showing early anime like Astro Boy and others I’d never encountered (Dragonball will be showing tomorrow but alas can’t go and watch it!)

Also after a great first series, Sword Art Online 2 will be making a return. This I’m looking forward to watching!

Saint Seiya Legend of Sanctuary

I was really impressed with the Saint Seiya trailer for Legend of Sanctuary. I’ve not watched the series but the trailer looked really amazing and I look forward to watching the full version.

There was a huge crowd of people here and at first I didn’t know why… until I saw the image below.

GIANT ROBOT! I finally got to see one! 😀 True it wasn’t moving or anything (yet) but it was still good to see.

These professional cosplayers really do outdo themselves. I’ve put in a few more images below showing some more stuff. Tomorrow we are heading over to a antique market and then to Hakone and more mountains. We will be staying in a ryokan. Not sure if we will have internet, if there is I’ll post something, if not my next post will be on Tuesday 25th March.
