besides talking about his experiences at the convention, he also talks about the various pros and cons of this retro themed anniversatry convention. From the stalled elevators and increased security to the awesome tech staff and goodies that panelists receive.

there is also discussion about how retro times were 15 years ago. Old memories of old series and how you had to order anime from a magazine as oppose to downloading it online or streaming it.
