Coasty at the AVENGERS 2 IMAX premier!!!

So excited at the Avengers: Age of Ultron opening day!

Got my 3D glasses all ready to go!  With these shades, I'm giving Tony a run for his money in the suave department!!  Who's the cooler of the two?

It's nearly time for the movie to start!  It's gonna be epic!!


Definitely the best movie I've watched so far this year.  Gonna be hard to beat this one!  Look, I even scored this awesome exclusive IMAX poster!

Coasty gives Avengers: Age of Ultron 5 STARS!

Coasty's first time at Anime LA!

Hey guys!  I had a fantastic time at Anime LA.  First time there.  Pretty good attendance for a small con.  They've outgrown the LAX Marriott so next year they will be at the Ontario Convention Center.  Can't wait!

This is a real fan and exhibitor-focused con.  The con staff there are all real friendly and you even get free ice cream as a treat!

Our booth.

A nicely-made Tali from Mass Effect 3!


See you all at the next con!

Coasty hits Akiba!!

Hey everybody!  Sorry for the delay, but I finally got around to posting pix of my travels in the Otaku Holy Land: AKIBA!!!  As some of you may know, I make this pilgrimage once a year to hunt down and bring all you folks the wonderful goodies that are literally overflowing in this great country of Japan.  These are from the latest trip in September 2014.  Enjoy!


On the plane, on my way to the Holy Land!  Can you guess who my buddy is??


On the shinkansen (bullet train)!


Relaxing at the hotel:


Navigating the Japan Rail system can be challenging!

Bak-Anime 2014 at Bakersfield

This was our very first con in Bakersfield.  It was a great turn-out and everyone was so friendly there!  Thanks to everyone for their support.  And thanks especially to the Bak-Anime staff.  They were AWESOME!!  Looks like the popular titles at Bak Anime were Rosario + Vampire and DRAMAtical Murder.  We will be sure to hunt more of those titles down in Japan!

AnimeCoast goes to Conji 2014

Hey folks!  We had a great time selling at Anime Conji 2014 right here in San Diego this past weekend.  Thanks for supporting us and it was fun talking all things anime with the fellow fans.  It seems a lot of the '90s stuff is making a comeback.  We got a ton of requests for Berserk, Cowboy Bebop, The Slayers, and even Lum from the '80s!  Now that's old school!  Of course Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online and Magica Madoka are also popular.  We're hoping more products from those series will come out by the time we make it to Japan again.  Be sure to check out Anime Conji's site for updates on next year's show!  We'll definitely be there again.
