Realmies Out and About Anime Weekend Atlanta 2017
Anime Weekend Atlanta has been on my to-attend list for years now and I finally got the opportunity to go with two good friends of mine! This is definitely a convention I’ll be going back to. It’s got a great venue and I got to try a Japanese rice cake treat I’ve wanted to try for years: dango!
I cosplayed both days, day one as Ymir from Attack on Titan and day two as Ino Yamanaka from Naruto. I got to meet several voice actors including, Jennifer Hale (Avatar Kyoshi from Avatar: The Last Airbender), Christine Cabanos (Silica from Sword Art Online, Shiemi from Blue Exorcist), Laura Bailey (Tohru from Fruits Basket, Lust from Full Metal Alchemist), and Travis Willingham (Jugo from Naruto, Grog from Critical Role, Roy Mustang from Full Metal Alchemist). If you’re a Realmie who loves anime then this a convention you’ll want to attend!
