London Anime & Gaming Con

We spent this past weekend at the London Anime & Gaming Con.  As usual it was  a good mix of the wacky and wonderful in a relaxed community environment.

The event also saw us give our first Q&A panel at any convention. We were given the opportunity to talk on stage about the brand and characters, Samurai Chef included, as well as the manga we create.

It was a great two days seeing some cool cosplayers, meeting new fans and we even saw a marriage proposal!

Take a look at some of our photos, and head over to our Facebook page to say hi if we met you at LAGC.
