This is the longest running anime! I believe will never end. I ‘ve waited many years for this show to end but, it hasn’t. I believe even in my final moments, this anime will somehow continue on and poor Conan will never know what being an adult feels like.

My first encounter with Takeia Marie happened randomly while attending New York Comic Con back 2012.  A rap cipher gone wrong in the middle of the artist alley show floor. She nice with the pen in more ways than one. She can spit.  And even though I embarrassed myself, it made that experience that much more memorable.  How many people can honestly say that they met in this type of manner at Comic Book convention. Not many! But we’ve been chopping it up ever sense.
So when I reached out for an interview.  This is what she had to say.

Ballin’ on a Budget (Con Tips)

 This is our guide to buying anime, manga and comics on a budget.

When buying at a convention.

  • Walking around and looking at all the booths pays off.
  • Going from booth to booth interacting with the worker and owners can help you get a deal on things you were looking to buy from them.
  • Previous step doesn’t work with big name companies it only works on entrepreneurs and small business owners that scored a booth.
  • When looking for manga or comics shop around some exhibitors do flash sales and some just have better deals and prices.
  • When buying anime DVDs always go for small business they are usually always cheaper than the big companies that are there.
  • Be on the look out for any refurbished purchases. If you buy a DVD test it out as soon as you get home to make sure it’s the real deal.
  • When in artist alley look for the deals like buy 2 get 1 free that’s 3 prints for $30. Lucky if you get buy 2 get 2 free.
  • Supporting up and coming artist is always a great buy. It could also be a recreation of your favorite characters.
  • Buy protective sleeves for your prints they are really hard to find outside of a con and they cost more outside of the con.
  • When buying a collectible do a quick research on the company if you feel some type of way about the purchase.
  • If considering buying a sword there is a few shops at every con but price them all because they never have a set price.

If you ever run into any problems or want to purchase items later on remember to
KEEP ALL YOUR RECEIPTS AND GET BUSINESS CARDS AND INFO.
