(No exclamation point because I was dead tired).
I got up early to meet GAINAX at 9am to help them check out.
There was a minor confusion with the hotel charges, but I figured it out and GAINAX flew back to Japan.
I then went to Target to buy some items when I got a call from my friend F.
I guess Yokota-san was at the artist's alley without an interpreter.
So after I got back to the convention center I headed over to help him interpret.
I continued to interpret for him through the autograph session...
Until Ben, his interpreter came.
I was to help Yokota-san with his special auction later in the day, so I took a break to go study some of the anime titles I would have to talk about.
Unfortunately I missed the closing ceremonies because I had to prepare for the auction...
And then I couldn't take any pictures at the auction because I was MC-ing it.
(Or interpreting for the MC?)
The auction raised over $38K, so thank you to everyone who came to support the people in Japan.
And that was it for Fanime!
Once again, the staff of Fanime gave me a kind gift for helping out.
Thank you, Fanime!
Everyone I worked with at Fanime is great.
If you haven't gone to Fanime yet, I highly recommend it!
