I’m typing this the week after Sakuracon 2023, listening to my newly-acquired Touhou PC-98 soundtrack CD’s. For those that don’t know, Sakuracon is a very-large-scale ACG (anime, comics, and games) convention held in Seattle every year. This year was my first year attending. I don’t quite remember why I didn’t attend last year, but it probably came down to me just finding out too late. This post serves as a diary of how I spent the three days and my favorite moments of the con.
What is this? I’ve liked many things throughout the years. While some have fallen out of my attention, others remain firmly cemented in my memories and feelings. So, I’ve decided to start a mini-series where each week (hopefully), I pick something random that I like or have liked and discuss it, why I like it, and its impact on me. These things can be varied, and range from more trivial matters such as my favourite animal, to books, games, and movies I’ve liked, to topics that have shaped who I am as a person.
