Should be perfectly fine. You may hear me talking quickly or trying to summarize though, since my provider charges $1.50/minute here in the States. :s

Shouldn't need much time anyways, I'll already be down there at noon anyways. xD

Tbh the question also involved my asking if there were any iM@S events going on and if there were some were you going to pop up for them?

Well, here are my tentative plans for the con (copy-pasted from my blog):

Day 1: Friday, June 29th
10:00 AM ĖTales of Vesperia FUNimation viewing
ToV is probably one of my favorite video games of all time, and so watching the film is an obvious must. This will be my first time viewing it, and it will most likely be dubbed, but Iím still excited to see Rita get more screen time.

1:00 PM ó Fate/Zero finale screening and Q&A with Guests of Honor
This is a maybe since Iím caught between wanting to hit up the Exhibit Hall as soon as it opens for the general public at noon or jumping in line early for this panel. Being as Fate/Zero seems to be the highlight of this yearís convention, forming up a line for this viewing at least an hour early is probably smart. But, Iíve already seen the final episode and I wasnít really that thrilled with it. If anything, Iíd be attending for the Japanese guests, featuring the VA for Emiya Kiritsugu, as well as the director and producer.

4:30 PM ó Yuki Kajiura Guest of Honor
It would be nice to see her a bit more up close before the concert, but I really donít know how these Guest of Honor panels will run. Obviously weíll get to see her and perhaps hear her speak? Iím a huge fan of her work on garden of sinners and kalafina.

Day 2: Saturday, June 30th

11:00 AM ó Lolita Tea Party
Food and entertainment? Iím IN. There will be a breakfast, some games and activities, and interaction with Japanís Ambassador of Cute, Misako Aoki.

12:00 PM ó Tiger and Bunny Panel
Tiger and Bunny was one of my huge surprises for 2011, and Kaburagi Kotetsu, a.k.a. ďTigerĒ, was also one of my favorite characters of that year. Heís certainly one of the coolest dads in anime!

3:00 PM ó Madoka Magika Panel
The lucky early birds in line for this panel will be getting some Kyubey masks/hat thingamabobs. Yeah, Iím not really into wearing that little devil on my head, but I am curious to see the English voice actors.

4:00 PM ó LiSA Guest of Honor

7:00 PM ó Yuki Kajiura / FictionJunction Concert
This is probably the biggest event of the entire convention, and a mere hour after TicketLeap opened it up for purchase a rumor circulated that the concert was already sold out. The rumor was only magnified by the entire ticket site seizing up in a glorious server crash. Thankfully, everything smoothed out by the next day and I was able to get my Silver-tier seat.

Day 3: Sunday, July 1st

10:00 AM ó iDOLM@STER Dance Workshop
I admit, I love me some dancing! The iDOLM@STER was another surprise hit for me when it aired in 2011. Iíve never played the game, but the characters were so fun and lovable, particularly Hoshii Miki. I hope this workshop is well attended so we have a nice group of people showing off their idol abilities ^^

2:00 PM ó LiSA Concert
As the singer of Fate/ZeroĎs OP theme, and the voice of Yui in Girls DeMo of Angel Beats!, LiSA is an up and coming performer. She also happens to be a super adorable girl whose interviews Iíve been watching these past weeks through Crunchyroll and the AX Live Show. I really look forward to seeing how her first US showing fares for her.

3:00 PM ó AX Fashion Show
Another really cool aspect this year is AXís fashion focus, featuring several names and faces known in the anime fashion world. This isnít necessarily a sphere Iím really familiar with, but I am extremely curious. I love clothes and accessories, and may just branch out if this fashion show is to my liking.

4:00 PM ó Revolutionary Girl Utena viewing
It feels like a bit of a waste to spend too much time watching anime during all the events that are available, but I am really curious about this particular one given it and its directorís reputations. Mawaru Penguindrum was an unforgettable show, for both good and bad reasons, and all the discussion on it convinced me to try out some of Ikuharaís other celebrated works.

6:30 PM ó Total Eclips Screening
I am not actually really that interested in this anime and didnít even have it on my list of shows to watch for the summer season. BUT! I tend to give shows with a lot of hype at least one episode to win me over, even if I have zero hopes for it. I might as well see it here!

Day 4: Monday, July 2nd

10:00 AM-3:00 PM ó Exhibit Hall
Iíd like to spend the last day perusing the hall seeing if I missed anything or if any of the panels catch my interset. I may drop by the Figure Collecting 101 or JET panels. I donít fly out until around 5PM, so I have plenty of time between checking out from the hotel and getting to the airport.

I dunno, I figured you took a better glance at the schedule or something.

If there was an interesting iM@S event worth going to, you bet I'd be there.

MARINA! Where will you be on Day 0?

I'll probably be lining up at around 1:30, then I'll (hopefully) make it to the red carpet. I can give you my number!

If you're interested in fan-hosted events too, there might be some if you ask the info desk. I recall one year where there was a fan-hosted Haruhi gathering, and even a Genderbending of Haruhi gathering, which AX kept track of (though is not part of their official schedule). It's been a while though so I'm not sure.

Just came back from Day 0.

Someone remind me to bring a gallon of water and a towel next year.

Believe me, it isn't very comfortable either waiting almost 2 hours under direct sunlight in a crowded line.

I was hoping for cooler weather this year and it looks like we got it.

But it's always warm/hot under the direct sunlight around this time of year and I don't do very well under the heat. I avoided registering at AX last year until around ?1:45 PM-?2:00 PM last year because I wanted to wait until the line got shorter and to avoid the direct sunlight where the line is forced to stand outside.

I assume everyone is still standing on the north side of the building?

Everyone at AX this year and wanting to meet, hopefully you'll see this:

I'm hoping to meet up with whomever I can tomorrow morning at 9:30 in front of the building entrance where everyone went in to get their badges. If you're around, stop by and say hi.

Bad luck taking forever to get transport from airport to hotel, then hotel to con, but good luck in that by 5:30PM, the pre-registered line is a constant flow and I made it through in and 1 hr and 15 min.

Day 0 went pretty well, and then I realized that I don't hold a premium image hosting account. Here's my summarization of events with some photos, but I'll probably need a bit of time to lower the filesizes and upload them all to ImageShack.

Anyone notice that they had the opening ceremonies on Day 0?

If they're going to do that, they might as well make it a 5-day con (mon-fri). That
way everyone would have a weekend to prepare for it, and a weekend to recover
from it, before going back to their respective daily grinds.

I truly envy people that got to meet Ryo Horikawa. I hope somebody somewhere asked him something about voicing Reinhard Von Lohengramm.
