Meet Your Anime Industry...Via Confession

Anime fans and industry members "confess" at Aniplex's booth at Otakon.


Sorry, Chris-- I couldn't not take this screencap.

So, at Otakon, Aniplex had cosplayers from Kannagi taking "confessions" from congoers in honor of Bandai Entertainment's quick license-and-release announcement immediately prior to the con.

But you attendees weren't the only ones who got caught in a Zange-chan tractor beam! No, a whole crew of industry attendees also confessed to the "nun," including New York Anime Fest's Peter Tatara, Bandai Entertainment's president Ken Iyadomi, Chris MacDonald from ANN, and a few other surprises!
  
  
And here is part one-- the regular attendees.

This was a nice and amusing thing they did. I really enjoyed it.

Was that guy at the 2:50 mark of the second video trying to be a jerk.  That guy when a little over board.  I guess it takes a real man to wear that pink t-shirt at the 5:27 mark of the second video. I know I can't pull it off.

I hope they do this at Saboten-con this fall.  That way I can have a Confession just like that guy did in the second video at the 4:22 mark and say the same think he did.  Just kidding.  I think.;)
