After 2 days of backbreaking toil, Anime Alliance Philippines has completed its coverage of the 7th Philippine Toys, Hobbies, and Collectibles Convention (ToyCon). Key highlights of AAP's coverage of the event include live streaming media on AAP Live! via Stickam; high-quality recorded video of the cosplay proper; photographs of the event venue and the participants; and interviews from some of the big names from the conference like Ronald Guanzon, Alodia Gosengfiao, and members of the various special interest groups from around the country. Keep posted on Anime Alliance Philippines' blog for more updates as they come.

I'd personally like to thank Mr. Azrael Coladilla for graciously allowing us to cover the event once more, making this the second time that Anime Alliance Philippines has provided live content in addition to that provided by the organizers. I'd also like to thank Mr. Ronald Guanzon for granting AAP an exclusive short interview spot with Ms. Gosengfiao and dancing the caramelldansen along with us. Thanks also go to Mr. Hideo V. (I'll update this when I remember his name) for bringing in one of the first figurines (import edition!) of Solid Snake from MGS4 *drools* and demonstrating to us the power of video blogging.

And my thanks also go to the faithful members of Anime Alliance Philippines, without which there would be no AAP. It's your belief in the power of a few that we keep sucking up our pride (and our finances) in order to provide great coverage of every single event that comes out. Thanks!
