Con Swag 2022

Post by Master of NERV »

Hi, all! Starting this thread for 2022.

Tight budget this year, but got a few scores:
  • AB 2020 pin and patch -- Got these as soon as I got my badge. Fun to have merch for an event that never was.
  • Tatsumaki from One Punch Man -- finally, a fig that was affordable.
  • Berserk DVD -- remaster from film.
  • Tiger plushie -- gift for the wife. We call him "pork bun tiger".

1. My favorite (and most costly) purchase of the weekend was the Yu Yu Hakusho Memorial CD Box I snagged in the dealer's room for $150 ($162 with my card). Worth every cent.
2. A kimono from the dealers room that I got for $80.
3. A few art prints and key chains from artist alley.
4. Yu Yu Hakusho 'info cards' (I'm not certain of the precise name for them), they have various bits of info about the characters throughout the series. Interesting thing about them is I'm pretty sure they were made during the production of the anime, one reason being that on the back of one there's a scene that was portrayed in a way only seen in the manga (but shown on the card itself in the anime style). Also a few of the characters are depicted with incorrectly colored hair.

Late to responding to this, but I rounded out a ton of series for manga/light novels this year to both splurge in one place and complete as much as possible. I got other merch and things, but the manga and light novels were the highlight as an avid reader and collector.

Highlights of the List are:

Manga:
  • Heavenly Delusion
  • Kakegurui
  • Knight of the Ice
  • Something's Wrong With Us
  • Magus of the Library
  • Sweat and Soap
  • Black Butler
  • The Savior's Book Cafe Story in Another World
  • Pretty Boy Detective Club
  • Jujutsu Kaisen
  • The Ancient Magus Bridge
  • Oresama Teacher
Light Novels
  • The Hero Laughs While Walking the Path of Vengeance a Second Time
  • My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead To Doom!
  • The White Cat's Revenge as Plotted from the Dragon King's Lap
I'll admit, I really wanted to slam down the full stack of Ascendance of a Bookworm too, but I just read the entire series on the J-novel app when it was on catch-up (AKA read the entire series for free without paying for the volumes), so I knew if I got it a reread would take some time to get to. I'll hold off on that for next con when I hope they have a booth and I can support directly!
