Due to my current interest in Sword Art Online (with more info on that in my article entitled Sword Art Online – My Current Obsession), I have finally decided to attend Anime Expo for the first time.

My older brother is a big fan of anime and has been going for years. I have always been interested in going since I have a past of liking Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and more in my younger days but I could never get myself to buy a ticket.

My recent obsession with Sword Art Online was the main reason for wanting to go. I was mainly interested in seeing people Cosplay as my favorite characters and in buying merchandise. I was finally sold when I heard that there would be a screening for Sword Art Online II at the expo.

I have never gone before, so I really do not know what to expect. I have not gone to any “cons” or “expos” before so this is very exciting!
