Behold The Epicness Of Anime Nation 2012

*cue my epic intro music*



Welcome one and all to the gathering of freaking awesome people, also referred to as Anime Nation. Near and far alike many people assembled like the avengers to celebrate the merriment and wonder that is Anime and Japanese culture at its finest. We spoke a little about this event on Monday so I hope if you are a returning reader that you had the opportunity to come and see everything for yourself. If not then don't worry I got you back dude/dudette, not the greatest of video quality but I rep for my peoples so we got some video footage of the event to help you feel like you were a part of the action so to speak capturing some of the nights highlights. Not to mention the pictures that we snapped over the course of the night of varying cosplayers; I wonder if you can figure out who all these cosplayers are imitating? Well before I show you the main video I just want to say many a thanks to RETV who 'pass thru' through as promised via their shout-out on Twitter. Special thanks as well to the Japanese Embassy of Jamaica for helping spread their wonderfully rich culture with us. Last but not least the JACosplayers team along with all the anime fans that came out and showed supported to make this a grand success. So to quote a famous plumber; "Here We Go!"



So yeah, not the greatest of video quality of editing since i'm kinda working with limited resources and time at the moment but its at least an authentic and genuine experience into what the Anime Nation has to offer. Hopefully one day I will own my own professional camera and mic to shoot with but until such time or one of you kinda people donates to my worthy cause this will have to do ^_^. Anywhore got some other videos to show off as well along with the photo gallery of the event which will be on our facebook page so be sure to go and check those out along with all the other content we have their on Zalgo Cometh. Be sure to like the page and enjoy because it lets us know you care...

Well I got some gaming to make up for so buh bye from In The Mind Of My Mind. Hope you enjoyed our little bit of coverage; definitely hope to see you out in full force supporting next time around. I would also like to point out that this was by no means a sausage-fest as many females were in attendance and people from all age demographics. Check out our full photo spread on the Zalgo Cometh Facebook Page; as well as the JACosplayaz photo album and Facebook page. So until next time, keep on gaming...
