The First Day of Cosplay at Anime Matsuri

Anime Matsuri this year is set up to be bigger and better than any year ever. For the first time in the shows history, it is taking up floor space in the biggest convention center in Houston. That’s a big deal, and you can tell they weren’t exactly prepared for what that means. Schedules weren’t printed and dispersed until hours after the first panels had started and with the way that George R. Brown Convention Center is set up, you [...]

[Preview] Skullgirls

This weekend at Anime Matsuri, an EVO qualifying fighting game tournament was held.  Amongst a crowd of the best players in the community, I took to the first of the regional Skullgirls tournaments to find out what it was that had garnered so much interest from fighting game enthusiasts.  What I found was something that harkened me back to the days of Street Fighter III. It’s a game that is a bit short on roster, but is arguably one of [...]
