For the second time this year, I made my way over to the ExCel Centre in London for another MCM London Comic Con. As such, this will be a post where I share the items I picked up from there – my wallet feels much lighter now. Without further ado, let’s take a look.
Gonna start with the things that it has become a tradition for me to pick up whenever I’m at Comic Con.
The pack I picked up contains one box of Hello Panda biscuits with a chocolate filling; one box of Hello Panda chocolate biscuits with a chocolate filling; two boxes of choco banana flavoured Pocky; two boxes of strawberry flavoured Pocky; two boxes of matcha green tea flavoured Pocky; four boxes of cookies and cream Pocky; and four boxes of chocolate Pocky. These snacks will be consumed whilst I am watching anime.
As you can see, I picked up some Soul Eater playing cards – these came from TokyoToys as well. With the Pocky and playing cards out of the way, let’s take a look at the anime and manga I picked up from Comic Con.
I picked up Soul Eater NOT!, One Piece Collection 7, and Dragon Ball Z Season Five from Manga UK, whilst Anime Limited was where I got Psycho-Pass 2, Psycho-Pass The Movie and Harmony. Talking of Psycho-Pass, director Naoyoshi Shiotani had a panel there which provided an insight into his work in the anime industry. Some pretty interesting stuff.
Since I know that Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is getting an anime adaptation that will start airing in January 2017, I figured why not pick up the first volume of the manga. As for Cells at Work!, I really like the concept – the characters are anthropomorphisms of the cells in a human body. The series focuses on them doing their jobs – red blood cells delivering oxygen, whilst white blood cells fight bacteria and viruses for example. I’ll definitely be sharing my thoughts about Cells at Work! on here at some point, as well as the other manga I picked up.
Out of all the places selling anime figures at Comic Con, I could only find one that had any PreCure! stuff. They mostly had Smile PreCure!, but I managed to spot that. I almost got a Sailor Saturn figure instead, but for me PreCure wins out over Sailor Moon.
There was a little assembly, but nothing too complicated – just a case of attaching both her legs and her hair and then putting her on the base. Once I’d done that and photographed her, she went on my shelf alongside my other anime and video game figures.
I didn’t get all of these from Comic Cons, but I’m pretty fond of my little collection here.
That’s everything I picked up from MCM London Comic Con this time around. I’ll be putting a post up later about the anime acquisitions that were announced over the weekend. Whilst I was there, Manga UK made a few announcements that I’m quite happy about. Keep an eye out for that post to find out what they were (or, you know, visit social media and find out that way.)
