Someone needs to organize an MAL roadtrip.

Count me in
It's a bit late to start organizing isn't it? I guess there's a week and a half still. Saturday June 5th is the last showing.

I also heard that they're going to try and get the movie to be released in more theaters in the U.S. (LA is expected to be one place). No official confirmation yet but here's hoping.


Arrgh. L.A. gets all the cool stuff.
Hopefully, they will release it in many places...I prefer not to travel.

Just got back from San Fran. The movie premiere last night was awesome~! We got a free large poster (signed by Christina Vee) and a free copy of either Vol.1 of the novel or manga. They also raffled off Crunchyroll subscriptions at the end but I never win those things =P

The guy from 2chan who had seen the movie 99 times in Japan was there too, making it his 100th time. The Bandai folks were so impressed that they called him up and gave him a badge XD Lots of people asked for his autograph too. Bet he wasn't expecting to become so famous.

I'll write my full coverage of the premiere next week on my blog.

I can't wait. I already got my tickets for the premiere on the 21st =)

Although google maps seems to want you to take I-5 and then go across 580 to the bay bridge, I think the much better way (and only an extra 25 minutes each way) is to follow 101 and enjoy the coast. You can follow it right to the theater.

You can either take I-5 north and switch to 101 half-way via 198, or just head to santa barbara and follow 101 the whole way. It's about 7.5 hours of driving, or 7 if you take the boring way via I-5.

I would still prefer driving than flying LA->SF... my car doesn't have lines and security; cheaper too. A rental car for round-trip is probably just as effective if not moreso, though I guess some people like airports. If you're uncomfortable driving, or you want to try to make it back and forth in the same day, then you can consider the plane though.


I don't know my way around the freeways and I also share a car with my mom, so I wouldn't be able to drive out there. But if you can, it's definitely the better and cheaper way to go =)

I figure the gas would be under $80 plus a room at motel 6 or something will still be well under the expedia package. If you have a car, use that.... or get a rental car for a couple days; you'd probably want one to get around after you land anyway.

Just bought my ticket for the 7pm premiere on the 21st. Didn't think I could afford to go but I found a cheap trip via Expedia (I live in LA so San Fran is only about an hour and a half by plane).
Find me a cheap flight from LA to SF too and I'm down!


Just look around on Expedia, they have a lot to choose from (I was able to get a flight+one night hotel stay for under $300)

I heard that apparently Crunchyroll, Bandai, and Yen Press will be offering some "goodies" that night (one I believe is a performance by Christina Vee).

hmmmmm... I have been toying with going that weekend if I can meet enough online people to make it worthwhile *ahem*. If you're there friday night, you'll see the Christina Vee performance and poster signing, and get a chance at 15 free crunchyroll subscriptions. There might be more, but I'm not really swayed.
