Anime Weekend Atlanta 4
October 9-11, 1998 - Atlanta, Georgia

My third time at Anime Weekend Atlanta, accompanied by my friend from WCU Joseph Owens, and later on James Bolick. The convention was held at the Marriott North Central Hotel, which is North Central of Atlanta (duh!). As usual, the gang at AWA made another silly program which resembled a comic book, just a bit more twisted. With the same cast of characters hosting the event like last year, but with an extra zing.

Special Guests included: Ippongi Bang (Everything), Steve Bennett (Studio IronKatt), Michael Brady (American Voice Actor), Juliet Cesario (American Voice Actress), C. Martin Crocker (Zorak & Moltar), Amy Howard (American Voice Actress), Mio Odagi (Manga Artist), Yukio Mishima (Japanese Writer), and many more.

The most exciting moments in the convention included the Cosplay, Dub it your own Darn Self, Music Video Contest, and Space Ghost Rules. What I should have avoided were Fan Subtitling and Meet the Con Chairs. As usual, Anime Weekend Atlanta had filled my weekend of fun that would normally be left void; if that makes any damn sense.
