Anime Expo kicked off today in the Los Angeles Convention Center. The annual event is expecting attendance figures in the range of 100,000 this year. From my perspective of the crowds today, that expectation is likely to be met and surpassed. There was a feel of excitement and energy around the convention center as fans of manga and anime gathered to celebrate their love of the mediums.

I have a few quick pictures for you from today, and if you want to keep up with all of the cool and interesting things that I encounter throughout the remainder of the weekend, make sure that you follow the Forbidden Panel Instagram feed.

TGL_key2     Tokyo Ghoul A is the second season of Tokyo Ghoul and it picks up right where season 1 left off. For those not familiar with the Tokyo Ghoul series, I will give you a brief rundown of the show and as spoiler free a synopsis of the first season as possible, if for nothing other than to set the stage for the events that take place in A.

Tokyo Ghoul follows the life of Ken Kaneki. Ken is a college student. He has few friends, the most notable being his best friend, Hide. Ken is more than a little bit of a bookworm. He meets a girl named Rize that he is interested in. During his first date with her, it is revealed, when she attacks him, that she is a ghoul. Ghouls are a species of human-looking creatures with special abilities that survive on human flesh. There is an accident that results in the death of Rize and serious injuries to Ken. An emergency transplant is performed and some of Rize’s organs are given to Ken to preserve his life. The result of the surgery is that Ken becomes a ghoul himself. Ken spends the remainder of the season finding like-minded ghouls, i.e. those who do not wish to survive by taking the lives of humans, and coming to an understanding of what his life has become.

With that as a base, let’s take a look at Tokyo Ghoul √A.

If you read my column consistently, you know we take our children everywhere and conventions are no exception.  We enjoy sharing these experiences with our children and believe they are instrumental to their development in many ways, providing both fun and education and plan to continue to share these experiences with them for the duration of their childhood.

Some parents want to take their entire families to a convention, but have obligations like attending panels, networking, hosting events, interviewing attendees, or sitting through celebrity events on the exhibit floor and taking children along for these types of events can be arduous at best and down right miserable, leading to impossible at worst.  Hours upon hours of standing in lines and fighting vicious crowds to get the shot you need, the interview you need, the exclusive action figure you need… it can be brutal.

ComicCon has your solution and before you immediately raise your hand against the notion of ever allowing your child to leave your side in this type of atmosphere, let me just tell you about this place.

Elflord began in the late 70’s as a series of photocopied ashcan comics featuring the adventures of Hawk and Windlbade, a pair of elven warriors. Years later, Elflord became the foundation of one of the most influential independent comic book publishers of the 1980s, Aircel Comics.

With nearly one hundred issues in a variety of related series, Elflord was one of the longest continually running indy fantasy comics ever published.

And now we are picking up where it left off. This Kickstarter will be funding the first full color issue of six in a new Elflord series. If you love epic fantasy with a lot of action, this series will be for you.
