Opening Ceremony

The guests were introduced one by one. First the American voice actors, who do the dubs of American licensed anime. After Crispin Freeman was introduced, Colleen Clinkenbeard was introduced. She was clearly pleased by the volume of the applause and gave a little twirl. Then came Greg Ayres, an anime fan who has become a voice actor. He showed up with purple hair, and when he was introduced, he decided to be giggly and bubbly too, and did a twirl that topped Colleen's. From that point on, each guest did a twirl, with one exception, and the guest after him did a multi-twirl to make up for it. I was clapping and cheering whenever they did it. Spontaneous emergence of silliness really brightens my mood.
