On day two, Tsukino Con at night has the feel of being an entirely different show. It’s a nerd fiesta of adult’s only events and it’s not always about Japanese Animation. Rick and Morty fans can rejoice! Also on this list is the raunchy Swimsuit Showdown. Yes, this show requires bloopering out language and the craziness that goes on, but it’s the highlight of the second day. To hear the crowds bring the house down only shows how popular this event is. It has been running for at least 6 years. Newcomers can recognize who are regular attendees when everybody knows their name. Other panels like Whose Sassy Line is it Anime or The Room of Shame in this year’s event listing only had this reporter curious. To run around in a cold windy winter’s night was not my choice to discover everything, but it is a reason for why I should consider attending next year’s show.
For me, interest in watching cosplay, new anime or music videos during the day is limited. They’re staples for many a show and I’ve traveled far and wide so I’ve done the gambit. The variety of panels is dependent on the ideas applicants pitch. Overlap is inevitable. With this type of event, more people are keen to put on their favourite costume to and walk around in. As I was people watching, not everyone who was dressed up was a Japanese Animation character. Cat Noir from the cartoon Miraculous was seen walking around, Black Cat (not the one pictured below) from Marvel Comics graced the exhibit hall and a Stormtrooper did not try to stop anyone, inquiring about a droid.
