Didn't ufotable officially cancel the premiere of God Eater?

It was never cancelled in Los Angeles, just in Akihabara.


Real question, do you think they would premiere the show in the U.S. after cancelling an early premiere in Japan and before it premieres in Japan? Or is it almost simultaneous because of the time difference (premieres in Japan on the 5th right?)? Seems like it would be an interesting decision by ufotable. Though maybe that'll encourage the Japanese fans to pay attention to Anine Expo if they weren't already!

Only a couple more days left, can't wait. Really looking forward to the F/SN event, Sekai Project panel w/ Isuna Hasekura, and the Little Witch Academia 2 premiere. Oh and can't forget about the autographs. 9.9 Need that Aimer for sure.

Nice to see MAL is getting more involved this year.

Wait ... WTF ?

They just released a collaboration and have collaborated in the past with other old names in rock. I don't really get it but I'm not WTFing it anymore.


Well, i didnt know that.

This will be year number 8 for me at AX. I really wish they wouldn't put Aimer with a panel like they did last year with Angela and Aoi Eir, but oh well

I gotta make sure to get my stuff signed, too

One of the most biggest conventions held in NA. I wish I can one day attend it but unfortunately, cannot. Just went to Phoenix comic con and that was enough helping out by being an exhibitor within the month. Oh well, maybe next year.

Ahhhh Aimer...presumably she's going to be performing Brave Shine? Ahhh I like that song so much...

Jun 29, 2015 9:12 AM by Hahalollawl

This is exciting! Wish I could go this year but oh well, maybe next time. I heard Spice and Wolf author will be there as well as the author of Yamada-kun. That should be fun to talk to them or ask live audience questions.
