  1. I'm working on a secret plan for NYAF. But for Otakon next year I'm hellbent on doing a good Fujiwara-no Sai. Let's hope my determination holds up!
  2. Apologies in advance for my accursed longwindedness... First of all, I really enjoyed this panel! In fact, it was one of the best events of the weekend for me.
