In March, 18th March to be more specific, I went to my first Anime Convention. I didn't even know they made those here in Portugal so when I heard about it I immediately convinced my brother to come with me. And he did. And we had a great time. I won't go into details but even though the place was small, it was lotsa fun. For the first time in my life, I actually ate ramen. *squeal* It was a lot better tasty than I ever thought it would be. My brother, on the other hand, thought it would be more tasty.
Anyways, I saw lots of cosplayers, some good, some awful. There were four cosplayers which I absolutely loved: Shizuo from Durarara!!!; Creeper from Minecraft (yeah, I know), Sanji from One Piece and some ninja from Sound Village (the ones that appear on the beginning of the anime) from Naruto. The last one was the best and I don't even like Naruto that much.
And, the big surprise there was, I found a guy from my school. How cool is that? He even recognized me (for some random reason). I was really happy knowing that there were other people like me, that liked Anime like me. Because, in a way, I'm a outcast because I don't like the same stuff as people my age from my country do. And, last week, my friend told me someone that also liked Anime wanted to meet me. I think it's the guy I met in the convention but I'm not sure. Then again, I'm beginning to think that it might not be him at all seeing as we've passed each other a lots of times but he hasn't said anything. maybe he's like me, a little shy? Well, I would love to meet people who like Anime in real life.
And, since we are in the subject, I might as well let it out. Despite me always saying that I don't like my classes, I think this one might be my favorite. I got a friend whom we share the same views of life, I found a friend who is also a writer like me (and he really wants to write something with me but I'm out of ideas) and I found another friend who is a hard core gamer, a little like me but he is more hardcore. In a single year I found three people with whom I share my hobbies so I am really happy.
I hope that by the end of the year, I have met that Anime guy and see what we could talk about. : )
EDIT: I finally met him!!! And I love the guy! He's a nice person and he likes the same stuff I do. It's really rare to come by a person like that in my country (well, at least in my school).
