We are back from Anime Matsuri and we had a great time. Bill talked us into going out to Houston for this one and we are glad we did it. It was really unfortunate that it was the same weekend as MTAC in Tennessee, but it was good to mix things up a bit and try a new con.
Matsuri takes place in Houston, TX at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott. It is a nice facility with an attached hotel and convention center. Space seems to be at a premium though with some of their smaller events overwhelming their rooms and having to roll into the beautiful outdoor space behind the center next to the waterway. I don’t now how much longer they will be able to keep it at that location, but it is a great space.
One of the best moments for us was the FLOW concert Saturday night. It was a great crowd listening to a great band. Toss in some well known anime series themes they have done and you have the making of a great time.
Here are a few shots from around the con. There are more in the Photo gallery here.
