Is this the first step toward formally turning AX into a 5-day con?
Personally, I see this as one of two things:

1. AX realizing that with a busy schedule and the fact that most people may skip it due to different reasons (i.e. Dealers' Room, other events) that it's better to do this on Day 0 (when nothing else is scheduled) instead of Day 1.

2. AX following in the footsteps of some other cons and having something alongside badge pick-up on Day 0 as an extra inceptive to pick it up early (I remember Animazement doing special Thursday night activities, and Otakon has introduced a Thursday afternoon Matsuri Festival last year).

Quote:
This was the first AX where I spent more time in the workshops/panels than in the video rooms, since (except for the "Muv-luv Alternative" premiere) the video room showings were mostly older shows.

I guess nowadays, if you want to see the latest releases, go to the Internet, not
the video rooms.
I think that this depends on the convention, although it does feel that there's less conventions showing newer titles as a result of anime companies having more of an impact at them (as well as wanting the dubs to be shown when it comes to certain shows).

$3.00 for a bottle of water. Gotta love that LACC pricing!
Then there's Otakon, where it's only one dollar.

Gah, finally downloaded mostly everything in the internet. Here they are.

Day 0 = 456 pictures
Day 1 1 & 2 = 2,859 pictures
Day 2 = 1,854 pictures
Day 3 = 1,351 pictures
Day 4 = 785 pictures

Total number of pictures taken (excluding Lisa's Concert and Masquerade pictures) = 6,305 pictures taken after deleting blurry pictures

Anyone know who exactly from Studio Trigger is coming to AX? I recall the announcement was vague about it and I don't see anything on the AX site at the moment.

Registered quite a while ago, have a hotel room set, and purchased plane tickets! Now I just need my workplace to approve the time off for that weekend (1st in line on waiting list :S)

Panels/guests that I'm interested in include:

Day 1, 5:15PM - Kazuhiro Furuhashi
Day 1, 6:30PM - huke
Day 2, 9AM - Culture Japan with Danny Choo
Day 2, 11:15AM - Nobuhiro Kikuchi
Day 2, 12:15PM - Megumi Han
Day 2, 5PM - Writing about Anime: Anime Journalism and the Web
Day 2, 5:15PM - Noizi Ito
Day 3, 11:15AM - George Wada
Day 3, 1PM - Sunrise Official Panel
Day 3, 2:30PM - The Garden of Words premier
Day 3, 3PM - Production I.G. Guest of Honor Panel
Day 3, 4:15PM - Kazuhiko Inoue
Day 3, 5:45PM - Keigo Sasaki

So many of what I want to see overlaps, so I'll probably end up missing some of them like last year due to scheduling and distance. I'm also helping out roommates on autographs this year, so would love to wait in line with others :3

Not gonna make it this year, sadly, due to personal issues...but that does look like a sweet list of guests (and I was under the impression that this year's guests sucked...)

It's there for badge pick-up, but no events will be held there due to feedback from last year.

I feel like I should go this year, since I'm finally almost done crafting together my Stakes of Purgatory Cosplay... And i'm in Vegas so It's not that far of a drive ...

Lol Wish it didn't come for another month

If you arrive early on Day 1 (instead of Day 0) and pre-register, you don't even need to wait long for your badge

The panels, though...good luck

Frickin' Canada Day shut down all of the businesses I needed to visit before I leave; gotta do all my stuff today before work. >.<

That just means the day's right on my doorstep! Start seeing some of you tomorrow!

Somebody asked Mitsuhisa Ishikawa today in the IG panel if there will be a 2nd season for Psycho-pass. He went, "Wait, isn't this already announced?"

No man, it wasn't announced yet.

So that was my first anime convention ever. Unfortunately I was only able to make it on the last day so I missed all the interesting talks and panels. Anyways, still grabbed a lot of loot though:

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Some of the loot was free but it was still a very heavy toll on my wallet. Good thing I live really close so there wasn't any travel or lodging costs involved. While I was leaving there were some 'protesters' right outside:

Think I got enough coverage and merch this year. Here's a few photos, with a LOT more on this post.

Spoiler for Pics!:


Have some photos of myself with Noizi Ito-san, but they made us promise we wouldn't publish them, sorry!
