This picture batch is Day 0. It shows me getting to Boston, hanging out in the mall, checking in and all that crap. The more interesting part is a behind the scenes look at the Anime Boston staff putting together the con you've come to know and love. We had a bit of a disaster when a sprinkler head broke in Main Events. The water didn't stop for more than two hours and it really was starting to build up! I saw at least one inch on the floor in there and it all dripped down to lower floors, flooding a restaurant! It all worked out in the end though and Opening Ceremonies started on time. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!

This was the view from the passenger seat in Mel's car
