Well, here's a more detailed recap:

Day 1:

I got to my hotel, which was pretty nice for $70-$80 a night, then headed over to the convention.

The first thing I did was go to the Sleeping Samurai arena. The Sleeping Samurai company sells foam, boffer weapons and holds fights and tournaments at the convention.

There, I bought a boffer odachi and signed up for a tournament. but, it took a while for the tournament to start, so I went shopping. I bought two figures: Anguirus and Vegito and went back to check on the tournament. Once I was in, I fought as hard as I could. The fight was longer then usual. That must mean I'm getting better at it. But, I still lost.

Then, I went shopping again. Mostly to look around.

Then, I tried to get to the Team Four Star Panel, but they were already at full capacity. So, I checked to see when Team Four Star was signing autographs and it turns out that I was third in line, behind this couple that were big Abridged series fans, so I got to have fun with them. Turns out they had a set of seven small Dragon Balls and the box is covered in signatures, from both the Funimation and TFS cast.
Then, Team Four Star showed up and I'll provide details on the experience once I upload their autographs.

After I got the autographs, more dealer's room.

Then, after I left, I was feeling tired, so I was heading towards a table to sit down for a bit when I noticed a long line. I asked what it was and they said it was for Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. I quickly got in the back of the line and waited. Thankfully, I met this awesome girl named Samantha, so I wasn't bored and we talked about anime and cosplay while we waited. She was Winry that day and she said she was gonna be Liz Thompson the next day. Unfortunately, I never saw her after that.
Then, I got Mary Elizabeth McGlynn's autograph and, again, I'll explain when I upload it.

After that, I was feeling very tired and hungry, so I decided to grab some drive thru and go back to my hotel room. But, there are no drive-thrus in San Antonio, so I had to go back to my hotel room and order Dominos. And thanks to complications on my end, I didn't eat until 12:00AM. I learned that night that I'm not too fond of banana peppers.

Day 2:
I got up, had breakfast, went to the con and then I had fun!

I again went shopping and got some real gems that time.

After shopping and taking pics and and breaking my belt and resting and eating, I got in an exhibition match at the Sleeping Samurai arena.
The guy I fought was new to this experience so I thought I could play with him, however, he was very lucky and beat me.

Then, I looked all around the place for the ballroom that was holding the Team Four Star 18+ panel, but I was a little late, so I was in the back of the line, but I got in.

It was hilarious! I'll elaborate on my TFS autographs when I upload them, but I'll show you what they showed at the panel!

Notes for Jokes:
In the TFS dub, Dodoria (pink-spikey alien) is actually a woman and Vegeta doesn't know,
Scarring pictures are hidden in the Solar Flare,
Krillin's a Space Duck,
Little Green (Dende) has a crush on Gohan,
Bulma does nothing,
King Kai refuses to train anyone but Goku,
Goku squeaks,
And Muffin Button.

After the panel, I headed back to my hotel. Unfortunately, I missed Space Dandy, but not One Piece, Black Lagoon and Blue Exorcist~!

Day 3:
Skipped breky, went to con.

I was able to make the near end of the Akira Kurosawa panel, so I was able to see clips of Yojimbo, one of my favorites. Then I went to the Building a Fun and Inviting Anime Club to get some tips for my senior year. However, they didn't show up, so that didn't help.

I shopped some more and I had to stop when I had about $190 left.

As I was walking around, my friend Jordan snuck up on me and almost killed me. We both entered a team battle, but before we fought, the bassist from the Silent Hill band, one of the guests, went up against one of the judges, dressed up as Shadow the Hedgehog. Shadow won, but it was all in good fun. The bassist also had an odd style: it was a kendo stance, but his sword trembled alot.

We had a team battle and I got killed a lot. I let my guard down too much.

Then, me and my bud decided to go to McDonalds for dinner. He showed me the first episode of Sword Art Online. It was pretty good.

Then, it was a long drive home thanks to road construction.

Now, I spent $1,000 on this con, and I don't know whether to be ashamed or impressed, but I will never regret it.

Awesome con! Wish I didn't got to it alone, but that's ok!

I mean about what happens in the games and how they won't meet again. That's the feel of the song.

Do you ever lurk around dA and find RP's that are either hilariously bad or cringeworthy? Like shit that makes ours look like screenplays or novels in comparison? XD

Unfortunately I've been a part of them.
