Saturday - February 4, 2012
If you are a student at or live near University of Michigan, I'll attending Animania's Con Ja Nai as a guest next weekend on February 11, 2012. Crispin Freeman is also a guest - i haven't seen Crispin since we were both guests at Anime Expo Tokyo years ago. ^^;;
The first panel i'm doing is a Megatokyo panel at 5pm in MLB First Floor, Lecture Room 1. It'll be a pretty casual discussion about MT and other related stuff. I promise not to rant about Angel Beats this Year. No, really.
The second panel i'm doing is something new, not even really sure how it will go, but i figure it could be interesting. It's called "By Mail and Fourth Gen: Anime Before Digital Subs" and it is at 7pm in the same location. Basically, i am going to bring in what is left of Anime collection from when i first got into anime in the 90s - which means lots of VHS tapes. I'll go over what my experience of the struggles and challenges anime fans faced before digital downloads and torrents and stuff. Next time you feel like grumbling over the lack of a 1280p version of something, i'll show you what '4th gen copy that you were glad to get' means. :) I might even be able to show a little of one of the Fansub i myself had a part in, years ago...
