Toronto Otaku/Blogger Meet, ACG, and other things

by eternal on December 21, 2008

As you might have heard, a few of the locals recently held a meetup at a nearby restaurant; the purpose, of course, being to help like-minded people meet one another. You can find more coverage at the blogs of the other two blogger attendees, Rin and Saku, but the bottom line is that it was a great event and that I’d love to do it again. For the sake of the rest of my readers, I’ll try to refrain from discussing similar meetups in the future, unless it’s a particularly big one; however, for the sake of the few of you that are from the area, I strongly encourage you to get involved in the local community and keep an eye out for events like this.

As you may know, ACG North America is an organization that encourages socializing as mentioned above, and they do so by organizing and sponsoring events like this one. You can find out more at their site, but to summarize, they’re good people that want to do good things, and if you live in the area, you should be good as well and go get involved.

And on that note, I’d like to close this little event by thanking everyone who organized and sponsored it, in addition to Rin for providing us with the pictures like the one above. As a blogger trying to slowly move out into the world and drift away from local, personal topics, this might be the last I speak of ACG on this site, but do us all – including yourself – a favour and bookmark them. Getting involved locally is a wonderful thing, just as wonderful as hanging out on #ab or /jp/ or whatever it is that you do, and if you remember to keep in touch I’m sure you won’t miss any future events. After all, there’s no need to wait for con season to meet your fellow fans, right?

@ Panther: Actually, my timing in mentioning that was a little off: I’ve been meaning to head over there for ages, but I haven’t actually done so yet. I suppose you could say that it’s my New Years resolution or something of the sort. Don’t forget that we’re on opposite sides of the globe though.

@ M12: That would definitely be nice. You guys have about 5 anime bloggers in Australia, right? I probably miscounted, but either way, I hope you have fun!
