Went down to Outland, broke in my shiny new visa card by buying some manga, proceeded to meet up with the other fans, and took a bunch of photos of the cosplayers. sigrid_gorgeous met up with me, and later went off with her friends, meeting up again for the movie.
I was a bit disappointed that it was AniForge's sub. I had half expected them to have done their own Norwegian fansub.. taking people's money to see someone else's fansub is illegal and immoral, but if I think of it as the money paying for renting the cinema (and I'm fairly certain these guys did NOT make a profit), it's not that bad. I had fun just being together with everyone, and meeting nursemette (and schizohybrid) was awesome. I think it's money well spent.
Had previously only seen the movie raw.. AniForge's sub was below my standards, twice they used your instead of you're, once loosing instead of losing, one lets instead of let's, and one instance of "a hold" instead of ahold. And one word capitalized randomly in the middle of a sentence, but that's hardly worth mentioning.
But I'm really really glad they didn't show Dattebayo's sub. I haven't seen it, but I saw a few recent episodes (that aone hadn't subbed yet, and I had already seen raw, and it doesn't take that long to download anyway..) together with Sigmund, and they were.. bad.
Photos online here - takes a while to load, 95 thumbnails.
Scaled down the images to 800 pixels wide, but if anyone wants the full 2048x1536 ~1MB file of a particular photo, just ask.
My favorites were (of course) the two special jounin.
The funny part is that there was no Naruto. There were two of Sakura and two of Orochimaru, but otherwise no doubles, I think.
Afterward, Sigrid and I went to my place, ate some chicken wings and garlic baguettes, and watched episodes 98 and 99 of One Piece (heh, she's a bit behind compared to me), before she had to move on to my dad's place where she's staying the night. I offered to let her stay here tonight, but dad's going to drive her to church tomorrow morning, so I guess it's more convenient for her to be with him.
