Good Morning AnimeNEXT!

OutOfTimeProd:
Good Morning AnimeNEXT 2010 this is where I slept last night comfy isn’t it?

animenext:
The AnimeNEXT Dealers Room opens for Saturday in a few minutes

DJ Ranma S:
And the dealer’s room blew a fuse.

Vince A:
@DJ Ranma S Has it been fixed yet? Curious since I’m in the 300 building

DJ Ranma S:
@Vince A Yeah, it was only for 10 minutes.

Vince A:
Another exciting day of video programming here in the 300 building at AnimeNEXT

animenext:
How’s your saturday? I’m looking forward to Gashicon’s fashion show and Kenji Kamiyama’s panel today!

animenext:
If anyone is reading this look for a girl in a white dress with pink polkadots and say hi!!! ;)

Scott:
Watching through these There She Is cartoons again
is just reminding me how freaking brilliant they really are.

Greg:
Playing some rockband and the video games.

Narutaki:
Heading to the Gundam panel first thing.

Greg:
Moving the video games to the holiday inn allowed for more game rooms! http://twitgoo.com/148vew

Narutaki:
Kenji Kameyama press conference at noon!

OutOfTimeProd:
I’m looking for the girl in a white dress with pink polka dots so I can say hi to her

OutOfTimeProd:
Look for this and yank his beard! And tell that @Scott told him to do it

Scott:
@OutOfTimeProd I am quite the negative influence.

Greg:
I love you lo carb monster. Sleep-deprived congoer’s best friend.

Greg:
At the conbudget panel…to kill some time

Greg:
Cosplaying is an expensive hobby.

Greg:
Planning to buy strike witches today ;)

OutOfTimeProd:
I’m waiting for the salior moons dressed up as Lady Gaga for an interview.

Narutaki:
I was hoping the Gundam panel would be more of an in depth discussion than an overview but it was well done.

OutOfTimeProd:
I’m at the independent filming panel and its the same guy who did it back at nyaf in 2008.

Scott:
Done with my interview with Stereopony. It was brief but pleasant.

Greg:
another panel: otaku through the generations.

Narutaki:
I love SEED and made that clear despite opposition :P

Greg:
Someone is wearing a lucky star sailor fuku t shirt….why would anyone willingly wear that?!

Greg:
“Anime and sport fandoms are the same because we all paint our faces.”

Narutaki:
Waiting with some familiar faces for the press conference.

Greg:
Every time I enter the dealers room I fear for my wallet…

Greg:
Media blasters had a great deal. $5 for obscure B Anime.

Greg:
Oh wow. http://twitgoo.com/149mcm

OutOfTimeProd:
E Honda!

Narutaki:
Caught the tail end of the Stereopony Q&A they were cute but of course the questions were terrible.

Narutaki:
Funi industry panel, only industry panel at the con, now.

Scott:
It’s @funimation’s new convention guy, Josh.

Scott:
Josh keeps on saying “y’all.” You don’t hear that language around here that often.

OutOfTimeProd:
At the @funimation industry panel, but leavin now for an interview

Narutaki:
Funi mentioned they are going to be doing alot for Hetalia at the next few cons.

Scott:
Surprisingly, there was not much of a big reaction to the Hetalia trailer. (o_o)

Narutaki:
Lots of DBZ questions at the Funi panel.

Scott:
No new announcements from funimation his time. I guess that they are saving all the good stuff for the major cons next week.

Scott:
So I think I’m going to give Josh a B+ for his first @funimation panel. He’s not quite up to @neumaverick yet, but the kid has potential.

Narutaki:
Am I the only one who thinks its weird to have your picture taken with a cosplayer like they are a celebrity?

Vince A:
@Narutaki No you’re not but then again I’m all for removing cosplay from cons anyway :-)

Vince A:
Did you know that there was a live action Lupin the Third movie? We’re showing it right now in all of its cheesy glory in Video 3

Narutaki:
Taking a quick lunch break with my leftover cheesebushes half.

Greg:
State of anime industry panel by Greg Ayres. http://twitgoo.com/149t8o

Scott:
At the Greg Ayres fansub panel. It’s a subject I’m kinda familiar with.

Scott:
A very different tone to this panel than the one he had two years ago. But of course, it’s a different time now in the simulcast age.

Scott:
Also, @Chris Cimi needs to pull his damn pants up. :-P

OutOfTimeProd:
Got to spend a half hour with Kyle Herbert awesome guy! Extremely jealous that he got to Australia # anx2010

Narutaki:
Quite a few girls dressed as the girl from Scott Pilgrim.

Scott:
I just heard Kevin Smith mentioned for the second time this weekend. We must be in New Jersey or something… ;-)

Narutaki:
Lady Gaga cosplayers?

Scott:
Decided to sit in on a screening of Strawberry Marshmallow, because I’m really in the mood to watch this show now. (^_^)

Scott:
Hey, @TOKYOPOP never released the 6th volume of Strawberry Marshmallow, did they? :-(

Scott:
You know, I think I’m gonna get one of the Marshmallow girls for my traditional “buy only one girl figure per con” this time around.

Narutaki:
Waiting for the IT CAME FROM FRANCE panel, looking forward to it!

Narutaki:
Cant cover panels if i cant get in.

Vampt Vo:
We got into the “It Came From France” panel, got kicked out to be counted for fire codes, then couldn’t get past the line with press badges.

Vampt Vo:
Seemed really weird, since most of the staff are very friendly and accommodating to press.

animenext:
The Promise Sisters concert is coming up at 4:30pm in the GSEC

Narutaki:
Had pancakes for dinner!

Narutaki:
Attending the changing faces of anime panel, the room is so hot. BLEH.

Narutaki:
Almost got kicked out again, sigh.

Scott:
Man, does a press badge mean nothing anymore at this con? (-_-)

animenext:
The AnimeNEXT Con Chair, Robert Rustay, is being interviewed by the media!

Scott:
It’s really hot here at @VamptVo’s character design panel, and it’s not just because of the sexy panelist.

DJ Ranma S:
@Scott I know right?

Narutaki:
Drank too much soda at dinner, stomach is :(

Greg:
@Vampt Vo ‘s panel on changing faces of anime was great.

DJ Ranma S:
Time to hit up the masquerade. Expect comments from me… I hope there’s a power outlet in main events…

DJ Ranma S:
They ran out of press spots and put us in the front row. I approve.

animenext:
The convention is starting to seat attendees for the Masquerade

DJ Ranma S:
#WordOfAdvice never buy Dynex tripods from Best Buy. They’re really craptacular.

DJ Ranma S:
Whoever’s doing the music mix for the masquerade to pump the audience, kudos sir!

DJ Ranma S:
First skit is Hetalia, brace yourselves.

DJ Ranma S:
The skit rickrolled everyone. I approve.

DJ Ranma S:
Hetalia skit went all kinds of crazy. I like.

DJ Ranma S:
The Card Captor Sakura skit was precious.

DJ Ranma S:
Para para Haruhi skit… I can get behind this.

DJ Ranma S:
Soul Eater skit made no sense.

DJ Ranma S:
Avenue Q – Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist to Hetalia… It’s working so far… They rewrote the lyrics. ^^

DJ Ranma S:
That skit was win!

DJ Ranma S:
Dancing Vocaloid skit, I like!

DJ Ranma S:
Gravitation with Thriller and YMCA. Stop it, they’re both overdone. But they redeem themselves with N’Sync – Pop.

DJ Ranma S:
And now, Cromartie High School to Daft Punk… And stop it Corey.

DJ Ranma S:
This next skit is going to be bad… Very bad…

DJ Ranma S:
Called it. #condesermicrophone

DJ Ranma S:
Okay, we got a YGH skit done to Poker Face with new lyrics… I approve!

DJ Ranma S:
BROOKLYN RAGE! And they’re spoofing the 4kids dub. I APPROVE!

DJ Ranma S:
I hereby decree that the vuvuzela should be blown for all bad skits.

DJ Ranma S:
Paroding Hetalia to the Potter Pals song isn’t working…

DJ Ranma S:
If I knew there were going to be this many Hetalia skits, I would have brought the ubiquitous red cup.

DJ Ranma S:
Sumomo is getting everyone up for exercises… Yeah, I’m so not getting my lazy butt up. :p

DJ Ranma S:
This Akatsuki skit sucks. ‘Nuff said.

DJ Ranma S:
If you’re gonna do a dance routine, put some emotion into it.

DJ Ranma S:
Any song with italian techno is automatic win! :D

DJ Ranma S:
I found my best in show!

DJ Ranma S:
To the Miku on stage. Great job! You have energy and having fun! That’s how it’s supposed to be when you’re on stage solo!

DJ Ranma S:
Nine-tails on stage busting a groove! (see what I did there)

DJ Ranma S:
The No More Heroes skit started hard, dropped, and is now back on track.

DJ Ranma S:
Up next CLAMP skit… Audience blew my eardrum out.

DJ Ranma S:
The CLAMP tribute skit was nice! It was just Magic Knight Rayearth tho…

DJ Ranma S:
Is it me, or is almost every solo dance skit is the same girl? o.O

DJ Ranma S:
Damn, lost my usb cable.

DJ Ranma S:
And now the audience is singing Pokemon. :D

DJ Ranma S:
The Princess Tutu skit is throwing some much needed culture at the audience.

DJ Ranma S:
Wait, what… Bellydancing? With swords? I approve!

DJ Ranma S:
FUCK YES BEATMANIA SKIT!!!!!!

DJ Ranma S:
Beatmania + Evacuate the Dance Floor = Standing Ovation!

Vince A:
YGO Abridged panel is full and starting

Scott:
You know, I’ve ignored it for so long, but the Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged series is pretty damn funny.

Narutaki:
Time for Bad Anime Bad! one of my favorite parts of

Narutaki:
Always good to end the night with a laugh, get job Bad Anime Bad as usual!

Greg:
At the “as the otaku grows up” panel, hosted by @UncleYo http://twitgoo.com/14bf3t

Scott:
Getting ready to watch @funimation’s Master of Martial Hearts. I’m really looking forward to this! (^_^)

Scott:
Oh my god, Martial Hearts is awful. Really awful. But it has “Guilty Pleasure” written all over it. (^_^)

Scott:
Ok. I think I’ve seen enough with the first two episodes. I’m looking forward to reviewing this one this summer. ;-)

Greg:
Back from . Phone died in the middle of the “hentai Worth Watching” Panel. Pretty good panel despite the lack of preparation.

Scott:
Thought I heard some vuvuzelas. Turned out to just be geese.
