Hashtag Desucon

Mangapolis is now one more Desucon experience richer after Desucon 8. As always at anything related to Desucon I had great fun. Read all about my last visit to Desucon:Cosplay last year here. Yesterday I also wrote a short and personal article on my visit to Desucon 8 over at filmfrasor.no. Check it out, folks!

As you will know by now Mangapolis screened Totoro and Cowboy Bebop at Desucon 8 and that was of course my main purpose for being there this year. But of course I could not resist getting sucked into the amazing world of Desucon! One of the things I really got into this year was Instagram, so every time I got the chance I would try to capture a small piece of the Desucon atmosphere with my smart phone camera and instantly tag it with #desucon on Instagram and Twitter. Check out Mangapolis´ Instagram and Twitter accounts for an in-depth coverage of Desucon 8 from the perspective of my camera.

Don´t hesitate to follow the accounts if you like them!

Mangapolis at Desucon 8

As some of you might remember I went to Desucon: Cosplay last year, and I had a great time there! It was my first real encounter with Desucon and my thoughts on this is documented here.

For those that would like to know; yes, I am going to Desucon 8! And not only that, Mangapolis will screen two anime movies this year at Desucon!!

Which great anime titles do we have for you guys this time, you ask?

Just give me a moment to give a fitting introduction, here goes:

And with that bombshell I give you title number 1: My Neighbor Totoro (1988)

This classic Studio Ghibli is such a feel-good movie that the universe is close to imploding on itself every time it is on screen. So this might very well be the last ever screening of My Neighbor Totoro and also the end of the universe as we know it! You wouldn´t miss that, would you?

And title number 2 at Desucon 8: Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (2001)

Cowboy Bebop the anime series was one of the first anime series I ever watched, and I was hooked!

I will see you at Desucon 8!
