MEGATOKYO DISCUSSION PANEL WILL BE FRIDAY AT 6:00PM IN PANEL ROOM 3 the panel will NOT be moving to Saturday.
We've finally nailed down our tentative schedule for some of the Panels and Events that we will be doing at Otakon this weekend. Here is the schedule so far:
Friday, 12:00 noon - WebManga Panel - discussion panel about web comics, will include other web comic peoples in attendance. This is NOT the main Megatokyo panel.
Friday, 4:00 pm - Opening Ceremonies - I've been asked to talk with some fansubbers about the fan community durring the opening ceremonies.
Friday, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Panel Room 3 - Megatokyo Discussion Panel - This is the main Megatokyo Discussion panel at the con - and i'm hoping everyone can make it. Largo, Dom and I will be there to answer any questions you may have, and we will be debuting two full color poster images that Merekat and I have been working on for the past few weeks. We've asked for the largest room they can manage, so there should be plenty of room for everyone. Remember this is FRIDAY NIGHT not SATURDAY!!
Saturday, (TBA, most of the day)- Largo and I are planning on hanging out in the Artist Alley for most of the day, so we should be pretty easy to find. This is one place where its OK to hunt us down...
I will put all otakon information in this box, so if you are going to the con, be sure to check here. Largo and I will have net access durring the con, so we'll keep things up to date for you. Should be fun!
Ok! Gotta make this very quick. I have to leave for the airport in about an hour. Gah... still not ready, even after taking the day off to finish getting things together ^^;;
As you may have noticed, i've dipped into some more of our fine Guest Comic Contest submissions - this is one I actually didn't get to see last time - nice work John, Largo and Piro look so... natural... in Dejiko clothes and with a shotgun... geh... ^^;; There will be one more guest strip tomorrow.
If you are going to Otakon, I'll be seeing you there. At Acen, because of the way things were scheduled, I didn't have time to really respond to all the people who wanted to talk to me - that shouldn't be a problem here at Otakon.
Remember, the main panel is FRIDAY NIGHT at 6pm. If there are any changes, or additional things we will be doing, we'll post that info in the box above. If you get to the con early, I'll be doing a panel on Web Comics with Ian Kim and a few others - I think we'll deal more with web comics in general than Megatokyo at that one, but it should be worth going to.
Saturday, I'll be running around in a dark blue T-shirt that pretty plainly says 'NYU', and i think we've secured a table in the artists alley. If nothing else, look for the images of Kimiko and Pirogoeth - that's where we'll be. :)
I have to say, i'm kinda stoked about this trip. Nervous as hell too - the panel at Anime Central broadsided me - i didn't think anyone was gonna go, so i wasn't nervous. I have a feeling that there will be a few people at this panel... Trying not to really think about it, i'm just gonna go.
For the rest of you, I'm not going ANYWHERE for the next few months, so MT's should be back on schedule without too many more delays. two guest comics, and then back to chapter 1 on Tuesday - that's the plan.
More updates from the con tomorrow night.
Oh yea, and i think that monday is the one year anniversary of Megatokyo. We're into Year 2 already??? good grief....
