But things are getting even better! Those who attended last year may remember that Rich McNanna, Michele Knotz, Joe DiGiorgi and I did both a Gravitation and a Genshiken panel. Well, we felt that a lot of material that was discussed in one panel was also discussed in the other. So this year, there will be a combined panel. But this year will be even better as the convention is currently in the process of getting some more of the great voice talent that worked on both shows to make appearances. They will all converge on one big panel (which is tentatively scheduled for Sunday 6/14) which will also be followed by an autograph session.
So get in line folks, this one promises to be HUGE!!! Not only will you be able to ask your favorite VAs questions about your favorite shows, but you can then get your favorite piece of paraphernalia signed by said voice actors immediately afterwards. So get your DVDs, wall scrolls, art books and kumagoro plush packed, because this promises to be one of the most unique gatherings ever. Not only does this promise to be the largest gathering of VAs for these shows in one room, but at this point in time, I can promise at least one appearance by a VA that has NEVER done a con appearance before.
So if you are part of a Gravitation or Genshiken fan group or mailing list, please help me spread the word. Let's make this thing one of the biggest turnouts for AnimeNext ever! I will be announcing more as things are locked in for the con, but you can also keep an eye on http://www.animenext.org for more info.
