Yesterday, at an event called "The Trial," I brought Lelouch Lamperouge from Code Geass up on charges of terrorism, assassination, and treason. Unfortunately, no-one on the panel was familiar with Code Geass. "The Execution" is today at high noon, and two other suggested characters will be put to death in effigy.
Wow. That is basically the geekiest thing I have ever heard in my life.
What do you mean by 'put to death in effigy'? Do you stick the faces of characters on straw men and burn them?
There was an anime/comic/video game/other geeky things expo this weekend (coincidentally called 'Armageddon Pulp Expo'). I've gone in previous years, but not for the last two. I couldn't be bothered going this year either.
I can never get into the culture. Walking around a large crowded room with a bunch of people dressed in ridiculous costumes is just such an uncomfortable experience for me. Especially when you occasionally have to see a guy dressed as a cat boy in a costume that leaves little to the imagination. They do all the silly event things in it, like costume contests, 'kamehameha' contests, among others, but I wouldn't want to take part in them.
Besides that, the things they sell in stalls aren't any cheaper than they would be if I just went to buy them at the comic shop.
They do have anime movie showings, though, so that's pretty cool.
