Re: Katsuhiro Otomo to be guest of honor at Anime Expo 2019

I've heard Fanime was great. ACEN is midwest, I thought? No. Did you hear about Fanime this year? If you were at AnimeFest/Hostage Walk 2017 and enjoyed that set-up, you would have loved Fanime/Hostage Walk 2019. Attendees had to put their hands above their heads this year in order to get into the ...

Re: Katsuhiro Otomo to be guest of honor at Anime Expo 2019

Sadly, no...it's the majority of large anime West Coast cons. CrunchyRoll Expo and SakuraCon both rely on industry guests where the requirement to get something from these guests is to buy merchandise at the convention. It's starting to creep in to other larger cons around the US. ACEN is the most n...

Re: Katsuhiro Otomo to be guest of honor at Anime Expo 2019

Yeah, I had some friends that went to AX last year and stood in standby for Nagai's line. They said that he refused to sign for standby. He just did the minimum amount that he had to do. That's how AX has been the last few years. Guests are brought over by industry, industry controls whether or not ...

Re: Katsuhiro Otomo to be guest of honor at Anime Expo 2019

It's Anime Expo. Since everything here is industry controlled, you're not missing out on much. No autograph session has been announced for Otomo. Since he's being sponsored by a company, if he has one, it'll be on a poster that you'll receive only after you buy $200 of stuff at the con. And if you'r...

I had thought I had sent the pic over earlier but I guess pics don’t work via PM?

Re: Evangelion coming to Netflix! Spring 2019!

This would be the first dub I'd look forward to viewing in a while, but only if they get Cardi B to dub one of the female characters. She'd make for a fun Asuka.

Re: Anime T-shirts and Merch from the 90's and earlier

I have a couple of Sailor Moon shirts still in unworn condition from the 1990s. There was one particular one of Chibiusa that I loved from back then since, unlike the rest of the SM shirts, it was drawn well. I had a couple of anime shirts that I wore with great frequency in the 1990s (a couple of D...

Re: Japan Travel Suggestions?

By the way, how'd you get around in less urban areas? I'd have to rely entirely on public transport because I don't know how to drive, so I was wondering if I had to be concerned at all about public transport accessibility in such areas. There are buses in more remote areas of Japan. Kyoto also has...

Re: Older fans – what is your take on anime and anime fandom today?

My best friend returned from attending Comiket all 3 days, and there is still a lot of 'older' series there. He's still pretty stoked about his Haruhi Suzumiya doujinshi. What do you like/dislike about anime fandom at present? How has it changed and what do you miss? I hate how corporate conventions...

Re: Japan Travel Suggestions?

I was last there in October. Cels have pretty much dried up, even at Nakano Broadway. There's Mandarake with a handful of cheap rando 1000 yen and under cels for sale and twin_angel's shop across from it, but it was very much dead. TA had lots of douga and only a small selection of cels. Once Mainla...
