Come See Me At Comic Con 2012!

So many reasons to be there. So many reasons to see me!

Creeping upon us even faster this year - - it's the San Diego Comic Con! It's the absolute summit point of that American convention scene that seems to only be getting longer and longer each year. Asking me if I'm going to be there would be the silliest question conceivable. I've got more reasons to go than I could ever possibly keep track of.

What reasons are the two most relevant to you lunatics, though?

First, I'm going to be signing copies of my comics at Archaia Entertainment's booth [#2635] throughout the whole mega-extended weekend. It's always the utmost pleasure to meet one of you users in the flesh so, if you do happen to be at the con, I hope you'll stop by, say hello and perhaps explain to me how EUREKA SEVEN AO actually works as a sequel to EUREKA SEVEN. (Honestly, you can bring up anything, but that's the anime question I'm most curious about.)

I'll be signing at Booth #2635 the following times....

  • WEDNESDAY - 7/11 ____ 6:00 PM -- 7:30 PM
  • THURSDAY - 7/12 ____ 10:00 AM -- 11:00 AM
  • FRIDAY - 7/13 ____ 10:00 AM -- 11:30 AM
  • SATURDAY - 7/14 ____ 3:00 PM -- 4:30 PM
  • SUNDAY - 7/15 ____ 12:00 PM -- 1:00 PM

Aside from that, I'll be collecting as many cosplay photos as my iPhone can fit and passing them along to you friendly people on here. Given the Wi-Fi situation and the scheduling, I don't know if I'll be able to make any posts from the show - - but fear not! I have a back load of content which will be coming to you throughout the rest of the week, so there's no impending dry spell of material.

Stay out of trouble while I'm gone, everybody!

Anime Con and now Comic Con, that's a lot of stuff and an opportunity to explore. Maybe next year, I'll get free time and no summer school. Good luck, Tom.

I was originally going to go but the places I wanted to stay were booked. Will possibly look at next year. SDCC is a must for me.

Have fun Tom!

  • Meet Vic Mignogna, Hiro Mashima, Hiromu Arakawa, and tons of seiyuu from my favorite shows. Get a picture with them.
  • Souvenir!
  • Meet some cosplayers. I haven't met any people who cosplay. Weird, huh?
  • Get immersed in the panels
  • Experience the Japanese culture like that maid cafe you mentioned
  • Get a picture with a Spiderman or Batman mascot (I sound like a kid now)
  • Request Vic to say "I'm not a shrimp" or something from FMA, Tetsuya Kakihara to say "I'm all Revved Up" in English. I didn't prepare a list of super awesome quotes for my favorite voice actors or actresses.

I had more more, but I add some later.

@sotyfan16:

I forgot about hotels. I thought about going on metro and coming back, but I forgot how long these events are. Plus, I have to keep in mind about the schedule in public transporation. It's a good thing I didn't go yet this year. I would have got lost like usual.
