My loot from Sakura-con 2013 so far, are basically Reki Kawahara’s signature. Yes, I finally paid tribute to the creator of my addiction. 😀
One on my Dengeki Bunko magazine vol. 26.
One on my Accel World Official 4 koma Anthology.
And lastly, on my Accel World Vol.08 blu-ray.
I think I was one of the few that actually have Accel World related goods (saw one or two people with Accel World light novels). Everybody else had SAO related goods (mostly posters, some light novels, etc). Too bad they restricted to only 1 item per person, although that’s understandable considering how many people were lining up for the signature.
The signature booth setup is pretty neat too, having some cos-players at the back standing (all are SAO cos-players though). Silica is cute! On the second day, she had a Pina plushie on her head! 😀 The focus seems to be on Sword Art Online. Heck, I only saw 1 girl cos-playing as Kuroyukihime throughout the convention, while there are countless of Kiritos and Asunas.
Anyway, seeing Reki Kawahara in person is worth the trip. 🙂 I wonder how surprised he is seeing how many people are into SAO.
