BACK TO VALLEN'S
"IN ANOTHER WORLD" PHOTO ESSAY

This young man really caught my eye, I had no idea who he was dressed as. As it turned out, he was a major fan of Japanese Rock, and had little knowledge of anime. He came dressed as his favorite Japanese Rocker, HISASHI IMAI, from the band, BUCK-TICK. This guy was a walking encyclopedia on the history of Japanese Rock 'n Roll. You never know who you might meet at an anime convention!
