Anime Expo 2014 took place a few weeks ago in Los Angeles at LACC which was attended by over 80,000 anime/Japan fans from all over the world.
For the past few years I've been helping out as staff and while I don't get to spend much time in the exhibition hall or watch panels, I do get to spend time with the most awesome volunteers who bring you AX - and the guests that they bring in.
If you have not volunteered to help out as staff at AX before - maybe contact AX to see if you can help out next year instead - the experience is priceless. I actually know one particular guy who volunteered as staff at AX and went on to work for Good Smile Company through looking after their guests one year.
Anyway, this post mainly covers what went on around me so its got a lot of photos with me in it ><
