I really wanna see "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" - havent been able to find subs of that.

I have a feeling that there's going to be a lot of drama with the crunchyroll and fansubber vs industry panel. i might bring some popcorn to those :D

also Im excited about the Jam Project concert - it'll be my first otakon concert that I'll go to. the only thing is, all the 18+ panels that i wanna go to are happening at the same time :)

I think "Girl Who Leapt Through Time" is still doing the festival circuit. I think it'll come out fairly soon, probably via Sony.

Maybe Maruyama-san will have info for us when he arrives.

It's doing a normal run now

http://timeleap.bandai-ent.com/ FYI. I believe as the film makes its way around US/Canada they will add more theater listing on that site.

As for me, I'm going to do probably 3 things:

JAM Project related things--concert, autograph, panels, the respective lines, whatever else

The fansubbing panel, hopefully, is going to be entertaining. But I get the feeling it isn't.

Karaoke. With the schedule out now, i can find the best time to coordinate a bunch of people to do some JAM Project songs XD

The fansubbing vs industry panel is going to be fairly serious rather than out-and-out entertaining - though that's not to say that it won't be valuable or memorable.

Same thing I do at con every year:

Friday (or Saturday, depending on whether on not I can get into the Friday show) - AMV Contest.

Saturday - Masquerade

Friday and Saturday nights - Rave

Everything else in between - Dealer room, hanging out with friends, game room, and snapping pictures of cosplayers.

No offense, but I don't go to Otakon to watch anime or movies. :)

Heh heh. What I meant was, I can watch all the anime I want at home (not that it means anything, but I have a 60 inch HDTV).

I mainly go to Otakon to hang out with fellow geeks and check out the cosplayers.

not all anime is easily accessible to everyone. "the girl who leapt through time" is a good example. or sometimes people may wanna preview a few episodes to see if they'll invest in the whole series. i might do that with 'sayonara zetsubu-sensei'. [sp?]

I will probably check out "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time", "Lovely Complex", and the J-drama panel.

I really want to see Girl Who Leapt Through Time (even though I've already seen it), but it's at the same time as the Media Blasters panel (and I wanted to hit all the big industry panels if I could), though (with all respect to Media Blasters) I suppose if there was an industry panel to skip, that might be it (no way I'm skipping Kadokawa, Funimation, or ADV, for example).

There doesn't seem to be as many anime shows being screened that I'm very interested in this year than there was last year, so I'm not sure how much I'll be doing that. It seems this year will definitely be big on the panels for me. And I'm sure I can stick in the JAM Project concert as well since it finishes before the light rails stop running.

I'm thinking the following:


Lesbians, Lolis, Vampires, and Drunkards: Welcome to Touhou (F)

Awesomely Bad Japanese Music Videos! (F)


Japanese Pro Wrestling (F)

What? Why? Hentai! (F)(18+)


Concert (pending a youtube check of the artists)

Short list (I probably won't even hit up all of those), but I don't partake in a lot of official activities. I'm more about people-watching, photography, and being social.

I don't know what I'm doing yet as far as schedule goes, because I haven't gotten my volunteer schedule from J-Rock Revolution yet.

But I know I'm going to the Sunday Artist's Panel and Autograph Session and the Sunday concert. And the dealers room. XD

Those are my top priorities as of now.

Not sure what I'm doing early on Friday, but if I don't have to be in the Gaming Hall real early (opens at noon on Friday), I'm going to watch Super GALS! at 9 AM. It's one of my favorites and I want to enjoy it with others. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time looks really interesting, so if there's anything I'm going to try to clear out so I can get to it, I will. Also, I'll hopefully find some people with Magic: the Gathering decks in the game room, because I'm dying to play some.

I also may try to hit one of the events at the First Mariner Arena, but it may be hard to get in there and get a seat that doesn't suck.

Thanks for making this thread, I'm getting psyched for Otakon just reading it!

Some of my highlights include:

-Kendo: Way of the Sword

-Making Visual Novels

-Funi's and ADV's panels

-Life Drawing

-Contour and Gesture Drawing

-Otaku Studies


-Tadano and Matsushita

...and I'd be lying if I said Bandai's "surprise" didn't look intriguing!

There are really only two things I really want to go to this year at Otakon.. and unfortunately I can't go to one of them due to my group's scheduling issues. Ah well!

Here they are anyway:

-The Tokyo traveling on a budget panel on Friday

-The Phoenix Wright Interactive Trial (the one I can't go to).

There are a few other things I wouldn't mind checking out- like the Making of Visual Novels workshop- but I won't be quite as irked if I don't happen to make it this time.
