~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AKB48!

NYAF:
The line for AKB48 tickets at #NYAF started at 2 AM. Believe it!

Scott:
On the train heading to NYC, preparing my questions for my AKB48 interview this morning.

Scott:
My main questions are about their NYC experience and I’m preparing some fluff question if I have time left. Anyone got good fluff questions?

Hisui:
@Scott You can ask about musical influences. Who they admire as singers. What they think of the convention.

Edward Sizemore:
@Scott The time honored fluff question, “If you could be any anime character, who would you be?”

Edward Sizemore:
@Scott Quickly followed up w/ “If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?”

Edward Sizemore:
@Scott Finally, the sneaky curve ball, “When does a fish bark condensation?”

Scott:
@Edward Sizemore Somehow I doubt that that 19-year-old japanese pop idols will get the joke. (^^;)

Hisui:
@Scott Also you can ask about their views on abortion and the death penalty.

Scott:
Got to have my AKB48 interview early. Limited to only three questions. Oh well. (-_-;)

Scott:
After the interview, one of them came up to me and handed me a stack of CDs. It’s the only “freebie” I’m keeping.

Jon I.:
@Scott I’m jealous! Congrats!

Scott:
Getting ready to whack off to AKB48, as @Zac Bertschy would put it.

Scott:
Oh wow!! (o_o) What a bunch of cuties!!!

Scott:
I am one happy fanboy now.

Scott:
That was the greatest performance I have ever seen. I can die a happy man now. Videos being uploaded soon.

Scott:
AKB48 takes the stage. http://twitvid.com/784EF

Scott:
Omg, omg, sooooo cute! http://twitvid.com/56192

Scott:
Some AKB48 rump shaking and the crazy Japanese fanboys who went all the way to the USA for this. http://twitvid.com/1E37F

Scott:
As I’m taking the train back home for the night, I’m reflecting on the day and just how much I loved the AKB48 mini-show.

Scott:
I maintained a cool professional persona in all my interactions with them today, but man, did I have a big smile while watching them dance!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Del Rey!

Vampt Vo:
Del Rey industry panel is about to start. If you’re not going to it, then get over to @UncleYo’s performance!

Scott:
There’s no slides, so I have to play it by ear.

Scott:
Del Rey announces Here I Am license.

Scott:
Del Rey announces Youkai Navi Luna license.

Scott:
Del Rey announces Rave Master license.

Deb Aoki:
very exciting — Del Rey picking up last 3 volumes of Rave Master by Hiro Mashima in one big omnibus edition – sept. 2010

Scott:
Del Rey announces Arisa (from Kitchen Princess artist) license.

Brigid:
Del Rey new announcements: Here I Am, by Ema Toyama, creator of Pixie Pop; Arisa, by Natsumi Ando, creator of Kitchen Princess

Deb Aoki:
other new del rey titles: Arisa by Natsumi Ando (creator of kitchen princess) much more serious, suspenseful shojo manga series – nov 2010

Brigid:
Also, they are picking up Rave Master and will conclude the series. (Formerly licensed by Tokyopop)

Brigid:
Ali Kokmen on CLAMP in America: “Full of CLAMPy goodness.” Due out in March.

Brigid:
Del Rey is handing out Moyashimon face masks. Ali: It’s likely walking anthropomorphic bacteria will not kill you, but why take the chance?

Patz:
Yes Del Rey has Code Breaker!

Brigid:
This is interesting: Ben 10 cine-manga will be written by Peter David and illustrated by Dan Hipp (Gyakushu) in his own style.

Brigid:
Bakugan to be written by Nunzio DeFillippis and Christina Weir, the writers of Amazing Agent Luna.

Brigid:
Ali explains the masks they are handing out to promote Moyashimon; @Toukochan asks if they will have nooses to promote Zetsubou-Sensei

Deb Aoki:
Q: will they re-release earlier vols of samurai deeper kyo? A: “we’re monitoring the sitch – if you buy 100′s of omnibus, we may”

Deb Aoki:
Q: will moyasimon have new cover art for all american editions? (dif. than JP editions) A: yes

Deb Aoki:
aw — Del Rey manga has no plans to publish Kasumi Vol. 3. so will the creators have to self-publish it?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yui Makino!

OutOfTimeProd:
on our way to #NYAF hopefully ill be there for Yui concert

Jon I.:
Now waiting for the Yui Makino concert to start!

OutOfTimeProd:
Cute intro to the Yui show with an interview.

NYAF:
Yui Makino’s concert begins in just a few minutes in the ANA Theater!

Scott:
Now waiting for the Yui Mikano concert. Looks like photos and videos are ok.

Scott:
… or Makino. Damn you Japanese and your waaay too simple language.

Scott:
Yui Makino on stage.

Scott:
Yui Makino opens her NYAF show. http://twitvid.com/937F9

Scott:
Yui gets the crowd going. http://twitvid.com/829A9

Scott:
She’s a pretty mellow singer. I guess I’m just too used to the super happy fantastic singing of AKB48-like group.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bandai?

Vince A:
Staying in room for Bandai panel.

NYAF:
See the Bandai panel at 12:15 in 1A24!

Deb Aoki:
hello, bandai. let’s see what you have new today

Jon I.:
Bandai prepping for their panel.

Jon I.:
No new Bandai title announcements =/

Deb Aoki:
bandai @ nyaf: no new anime announcements due to “recession” / negotiations taking longer.

Scott:
yup, Bandai is doomed (-_-)

Greg:
@Scott bandai? I liked it better when it was called adv films.

Deb Aoki:
bandai @ nyaf – more titles will be released in blu-ray in 2010

Jon I.:
13 episodes on Blu-Ray for $80? No thanks Bandai.

Deb Aoki:
i’m sorry. i really, really don’t like dubbed anime. :p

Jon I.:
Bandai needs to make actual TRAILERS for some shows rather than just show the OP. Like for Hayate.

Jon I.:
Bandai just showed previews for Sola and True Tears. They look awesome and moe. I’m glad I bought them.

Jon I.:
I think I might actually buy some the manga that Bandai is releasing.

Deb Aoki:
bandai @ nyaf – doing omnibus editions of Eureka Seven (vols. 1 – 3 in one) and Witchblade Takeru – due in oct/nov ’09

Deb Aoki:
bandai @ nyaf – escaflowne anime will be released in blu-ray next year.

Bloggers Panel!

Vampt Vo:
Everybody’s coming to the Blogger’s Roundtable tonight at 8 at #NYAF, right? RIGHT?

Hisui:
The bloggers round table is going to be like a million billion times more sexy and fun than the cosplay masquerade.

Hisui:
And we give away free stuff at the bloggers round table. Plus I genuinely care about your family The cosplay masquerade does not.

Erica Friedman:
Boy, the blogger panel had better be good, because everyone’s gonna be there. #nyaf

Dave:
As the #nyaf Blogger Roundtable draws closer, those who cannot attend bemoan their fate

Deb Aoki:
@Brigid tell me about it. I think I’m the only one up here with a 401k ;-/

@Scott I actually liked the fact that there was a large number & variety of panelists

Scott:
It also just occurred to me that I was called a lolicon twice at tonight’s bloggers panel. What the hell, people? :-P

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Karaoke!

Deb Aoki:

Deb Aoki:

Karaoke is fun, but it fails for not having “Baby Got Back” or “The Safety Dance”

Vampt Vo:
At karaoke with Twitter/blogger buddies. Fun times had by all.

Scott:
