Hi, everyone! I haven't done a loot post in forever, but after going to ACen for the first time in years, I had to. :).

I didn't actually buy all that much in the main hall. I only picked up this Kotobukiya Princess Luna scale:

and these art books:

I also bought some charms from the same stand, and the Fate/Grand Order Orchestra soundtrack.

First, the Princess Luna scale. I originally passed on her due to her release month. I then ordered her, then cancelled her AGAIN due to photos I saw. I happened to see her at Koto's stand at ACen, and suddenly, I felt I had to get her. She didn't look like the photos I saw when I saw her behind that display case, and I had to have her. I guess she's meant to be in my collection after all. I had also wanted their Shiki figure, but she was out when I decided to bite the bullet and buy Luna (I didn't see Shiki until I was checking out)

I didn't know those Fate books existed til Friday as well. I'm now going to start looking for them every year (to get the first, fourth, fifth, and sixth ones), and will just order the new one when it comes out. And that Kanon book is one I've wanted for years, but I haven't seen it in like 10 years. I was thrilled to see it. I wish it had more pics vs text, but I love it. I wanted one based on the 06 anime (the original's art is trash to me), and this fits my needs perfectly.

I also bought the yearly shirt. I haven't seen one with an actual image in a long time, so I was thrilled to get it.

As for the charms, those took forever to get, as they were mixed in bins. I'm glad to get the Tomoe keychain, as I've wanted that one for awhile, and I didn't want to buy a box of Afterglow charms for just Tomoe. The Flareon one is cute, so I couldn't pass on it. The same goes for the Miku one. And the Artoria one I was glad to see. I have a Gilgamesh one from the same set, and I know they're awesome in terms of quality and looks.

Now, onto the biggest part of my ACen haul, the artist's alley stuffs.
I bought a lot of prints this time. Unfortunately, I can't put them up yet (they're a weird size, 13x19 or something like that. Which isn't the size of the frames I have. So I have to buy them :/), but they look so awesome in person.

These are by LucidSky, and I'm sadly not sure of the other artist who drew Rem, the Genshin character (I don't play Genshin sadly, but I thought this picture was pretty), or one of the Spy x Family prints. :(. But their work was freaking awesome. The Slayers one is by Sabasse Studios.
I HAD to get Lina when I saw her. I LOVE Slayers. It's one of my favorite anime period, and I've loved it pretty much since I learned anime existed outside of Toonami or cartoon channels. But I've never seen anyone selling a Slayers print before (and I've been going since 2002), so this was an amazing find for me. What was even better is she had a charm featuring Lina and Gourry. And pillows. If I had the money, I would have bought it for sure (the pillow, not the charm. I have that now LOL. As you'll see later on).

These prints are smaller, and are SO cute. They're smaller than normal, so I have the opposite issue LOL. But I think I can easily get frames for these.

I also got this cute Raphtalia bookmark from this artist, and these earrings from the artist of the Slayers print:

The earrings are super cute, too. I look forward to wearing them.

Now, onto the last part of this post, the charms:

(Art: Sabasse Studios and Moorina)

I loved these epoxy charms. They were both super cute, and shiny LOL. And OFC I had to get the Lina x Gourry one lol.

Well, that's it for this time. I hope Anime Magic will be just as good in terms of merch. :).

Elise_GrimwaldVor 1 Monat#109871015I don't, as it wasn't on their bag and they didn't leave me a card, but I'll check ACen's site and find them through there. I'd know the name if I saw it. I'll edit this later once I find their site/socials/name.
Edit: I found their eBay and Twitter pages. The name of the store was Retro Saikou (all I knew is it had the word Retro in it). Both books seem to be still in stock, so they had more than what I bought, luckily. :). (I was hoping they had the others, but no. I'm a bit sad about that >_<;.)

Thank you so much for all the effort in searching! May we both hopefully find more of the art books out in the wild - I usually look on Mercari but sometimes things are overpriced ^^; I recently purchased Wada Arco's Fate Memo Vol 3 on there meaning I'm only missing Vol 5 at the moment. I highly recommend those 6 volumes.

lowrollerVor 1 Monat#109877550Nice con haul! I also always buy a tshirt from every con I go to lol. The fate books look very cool!

Thanks :D. I've been trying to start doing so as well, as those are limited and a wearable way to remember the con. IDK why I didn't start until this year. D:. But that's changing as of this year. As long as I like the pic (I'm not buying a logo only shirt), I'm getting it. :).
And they are. :D. They have slip covers with the characters printed on them separately, so the pictures change slightly when they're removed. It's pretty neat. Plus, the anniversary art is nice.

bonbonhimeVor 1 Monat#109851953Nice loot!! I picked up the Castoria print at ACEN too! (and a few more of their fate ones >3<)

Thanks :D. I'm not surprised you did, tbh, as it really is a pretty print. That artist is great for us Fate fans, as she always has a lot of pretty Fate prints when she shows up. She had some others that were nice, too, but I was trying to budget for the rest of the Artist's Alley too, so I limited myself to just Castoria. Which other ones did you get?

madokaaVor 1 Monat#109853005those prints are gorgeous ahh wow

Yes, they really are. :). There were a lot of really nice prints there this year. It was very hard to pick just some. I didn't even see the Rem one the first time around, and only saw the Spy x Family one. I would have been really upset if I had only seen her after I saw someone else had bought that print, only to find out it was gone. That happened with another print I wanted, one of Sailor Pluto in an art noveau style. I didn't have money at the time, and when I went to go get it later, it's gone. >_<;. I'm REALLY upset about that. The same artist does have others I liked, but they can't be bought ATM, which sucks. :(.
