Anime Expo 2010 Preview

Besides the Dealer’s Hall with its countless goods for sale, why should you attend this year’s Anime Expo?

I was reluctant at first to head down to Los Angeles just to meet Yuu Asakawa (seiyuu for Rider in Fate/stay night), but with the announcement of the Eden of the East trio: creator and director Kenji Kamiyama, animation director Satoru Nakamura, and producer Tomohiko Ishii, I had to go.

Since Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is my all time favorite series, I am ecstatic that staff from Production I.G. are attending this year’s convention.

Rei Hiroe, the mangaka that brought us Black Lagoon, will also be there along with a world premiere screening of the third season of Black Lagoon. The first and second seasons were action-packed and a pleasure to watch, so I wait in anticipation to view this sequel.

Finally, just recently announced is that MELL will be holding a concert. Some of her works include singing the openings for Rideback, Sky Girls, and Black Lagoon. It will be my first time attending one of the concerts at AX, but it should be good since I like her trance/techno style.

Come join us this year at the largest anime convention in the United States!

EDIT: Megumi Nakajima (Ranka Lee in Macross Frontier) and May’n (Sheryl Nome in Macross Frontier) will be performing at AX this year. The guest list is simply amazing now! My main concern is how I’m going to plan out my busy schedule for these 4 days.

    How lucky you are there. I love to go to this event … Too bad very few artists come here, and hopefully one known.

    Like I’m a fan of Saber as you, that’s as I found your blog.

    Regards from Argentina.

    It’s always a pleasure to see people from around the world, and a Saber fan at that!

    I can see how it would be rather difficult to attend AX due to distance. 🙁

    Oh man, with their newest announcement about the Macross Frontier duo, I’m really excited to go. The guests of honor list this year is epic.

    Who wouldnt be excited about this years lineup? Seems the guests of honor just keeps getting better and better each year 😀

    I am curious.
    Will you be having a booth this year at AX? If so, be sure to inform us where so we all can pay you a visit ^^
    I still need to thank you personally for MF’s Ryoko from a while back.

    Unfortunately, we’re only having a booth at Fanime this year since we don’t expect to have enough stock afterward to merit having a booth at AX. If things go well though, it is highly likely that we’ll have a booth at both Fanime and AX next year.

    Haha, no problem. Glad you like the figure!

  5. Quite quite pleased to see the Macross F duo come over. That pretty much made my day and I’m pretty excited at this point. Even if I’m not fond of May’n =D

    Yeah, this news made my day as well. Two concerts in the same day, oh boy…
