Manifest 2008

Manifest 2008 was a lot of fun, and I was a lot more relaxed this year (picking my registration card up on the Friday with no queue to wait in helped enormously). There were more cosplayers than ever, but the anime sessions were less well attended.

A few non-anime sessions seemed to not go ahead (wushi demonstration and the pocky eating competition!), and I didn't take anywhere near as many photos as I thought I would. It was great catching up with various friends. Unfortunately I had to leave early on the Sunday - I had wanted to see some of the later anime sessions. Most of the anime shown was quite old (for licensing and rating reasons, I have heard), but the one thing that I missed from last year, was a decent programme, that had a blurb about each session, and a timetable. I hear there were massive problems with the committee, and the printing of the booklets was one of the things to suffer. My photos are up on Flickr.
