PHOTOS - Anime North 2011: Day 1 Pictures (Part 1 of 1)

(Click here to view the entire Canadian Animation Photo Index)

My first day at Anime North 2011 has come to an end.  It was a blast and a half.  I'm impressed at the sheer numbers of people at the conference.  I've never been to a convention that has been this packed in my entire life.  It's pretty exciting to be at a place where the excitement in the air is palpable - especially in an age of general apathy.

Here are a bunch of still photos from the convention that I pulled out of the footage that I shot on the first day.

All photos and video stills were taken by Grayden Laing.
