Today, before I went to the panels, I stopped by the dealer's hall to drop off some stuff for my clients.
And to say hi.
I dropped some signs and a clip board for Company BR, stopped by Company HJ to tell them that I got ANN to attend their panel, etc.
Luckily I got in with an Exhibitor badge (Thank you RK & RN!), so my pictures are crowd-free.
After that, I rushed to the Geneon Universal panel.
I think a lot of people were confused (based on the questions they were asking) that this was Geneon USA.
Someone even asked, "Are you back?" and due to a misunderstanding in translation, they said, "Yes, we're back."
Technically, I don't think they're "back" but oh well...
I hope people figure it out soon enough.
Here is a picture of people asking the questions.
They got a freebie (a bag?) for asking!
Then I went to the TokyoPop panel.
I haven't done work for them lately, but I still consider them a client.
They also showcased something I worked on a LONG time ago.
I should have taken a picture of the slide, since the Amazon listing has no image...
It's released by the Blu imprint, so please look for it in bookstores starting October 12, 2010!
I was going to stay for the JET program panel, but since they cleared the room, I decided to leave and go to the Kitamura (a voice actress for ToraDora!)/NIS America panel to hang out with my friend.
An acquaintance was interpreting, but I didn't get to say hi.
After the panel I had some time, so I went to look for my cosplayer friend who also copy-edits for me.
She was dressed as a "Gundam Pilot," but unfortunately I didn't know what that looked like...
So when I saw someone that resembled my friend, I grabbed one of the pilots (the green one) and asked,
"Hi, are you a Gundam pilot?"
"Is that my friend H?"
And that is how I found my friend.
But it's really hard to tell, since 95% of her face is covered.
My friend is the orange one.
(Sorry I don't know their names! If Company BEI gives me work regarding this title, I'll learn the names...)
I then went to the Danny Choo panel to hang out with my friends.
It was quite interesting. And informative, since I knew nothing about this guy.
We tried to stay for the Horie/NIS America panel, but since there was a long line waiting for it, we got kicked out.
We still got to go in, but then discovered later that it wasn't worth it...
I won't get into the details.
I'm not bitter about it or anything, but I just felt bad for all the fans who waited in line.
My friend and I then headed to the Eden of the East panel.
The producer was doodling? Writing? the entire time. Hee hee.
After this panel I said my goodbyes to Company FCC's S-san and Company PIG's T-san, and went home.
I was going to go to the Aniplex panel but was way too tired and hungry.
Tomorrow I'll watch Wimbledon at 6am and head out to AX a little later.
I'll probably go just in time for the Company HJ panel.
If you see me there, please say hi!
And check out the Queen's Blade books!!
Lots of panty shots...like, panties that are leaves...
Did I get your attention now?
