Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? – Of Gods and Men

“Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?”, hereafter referred to as ‘Dungeon’ because the title is ridiculous, is not what you might expect from the title. Dungeon takes place in a city that seems to surround a massive tower known as ‘Dungeon’. For some reason not yet explained, the Gods and Goddesses have descended from the heavens, giving up their powers in exchange for the opportunity to assist humanity in their exploration of this strange and mysterious tower.

Each of these deities forms a Family out of adventurers they’ve chosen to bestow power upon. These adventurers then get a tattoo in their back that indicates their skill and strength, basically a D&D character sheet, that gets updated by their respective God or Goddess when they return from the dungeon. They gain levels, acquire skills, and learn magic as they adventure… with profit and strength as the only stated goals.

Ai-Kon 2015 Post-Show!

My favourite event of the year has come to a close. Attendees met some of their favourite voice actors, were reunited with old friends once again, browsed the enlarged marketplace, binged on the wide array of anime the showing rooms had to offer, and were amazed by the artistic talents of the cosplayers roaming the halls.

That is, once they got through the impresive lineup of initial registration. The lineup was longest I’ve seen at the event – spanning the entirety of the convention centre’s main floor, wrapping around to the back exit.

Ai-Kon 2015 Saturday Highlights

Well Saturday has come to a close… Saturday, the day of lineups. The marketplace line doubled on itself, the cosplay contest line stretched as far as the eye can see. This is the longest I’ve ever seen Ai-Kon’s marketplace line, which was kind of crazy. I hope that’s a sign of the continued growth of the event…

Ai-Kon 2015 Friday Highlights

The first partial day of Manitoba’s largest anime convention is coming to a close. Attendees have met the guests, been reunited with old friends once again, browsed the enlarged marketplace, binged on the wide array of anime the showing rooms had to offer, and been amazed by the artistic talents of the coplayers roaming the halls.

That is, once they got through the impressive lineup of initial registration. The lineup was impressive – spanning the entirety of the convention centre, wrapping around to the back exit.
