|Spirited attendees of
Fanime 2003 enjoyed a wealth of major events and activities throughout the weekend. Many
of the most interesting aspects could be found at various times and places according to the
weekend schedule. Video rooms showed the latest releases from the anime industry.
Merchandising had a wide selection of shirts and paraphernalia to sell to show your Fanime Con
spirit. Art Show found a load of excited artists ready to show off their masterpieces.
Game tournaments are never scarce and neither were the lines for the DDR machine in the Video
Game Arcade room. And for those who needed a quick break from Japan, they could stop by
the Hong Kong Cinema Experience room and watch a host of dramas, martial arts, cop shows,
romantic comedies, and action-adventures.
| Information Desk: Can't find out where the Dealers Hall is?
Where is Video Room 4 and what are they showing in there? Where're the Autograph
Sessions being held? Nearest place to eat outside of the hotel? The very helpful
Information Desk was able to answer these and much more.
|| Hall Entertainment: Ramen and Rice displayed their masterful skills
of violin and cello accompaniment for the hall masses. A delightful addition to any
anime convention, especially for the crowds of new fans who want a glimpse into what makes
going to a con so much fun.
Additional Video Programming:
| Internet Lounge: A nice addition to the con was the Internet
Lounge where fans could grab a seat, look up the latest FansView pics, check their e-mail,
read the news, or just chat with and nag friends who could'nt make it to the big Fanime
| Trading Post: Sell sell sell! Buy buy buy! Fans got a chance to sell or buy or
trade tons of artbooks, cards, posters,
cosplay materials, videos, wallscrolls, manga, filmbooks, various toys, models kits, cels, and much more! A veritable paradise
for the el cheapie fans who're on a budget and don't mind slightly-used anime items for their collections.
