For what it's worth, you had my vote in Drama (or would have if I remembered to turn in my ballot ). You got hosed, IMHO.
I plan on writing a very wordy review/critique of the contest to kill time before my flight, I'll probably post it when I get back to Tokyo in a day. Overall, this has to be the first contest where I'm satisfied with almost all of the winners in a looooong time (despite some hit or miss quality of the contest itself). So, congrats to everyone who won, almost everyone who made the finals, and see y'all in 11 months
Congrats to all the winners. I would like to give a special one to Bashar, because for once in these passed three years of Anime Boston i have been to, I was actually blown away by a video. Props to you.
Oh, and thanks a bunch too, I cannot get that song out of my head now. Not that it is a bad thing, but hey.
