Great Kon panel at AWA. Here's hoping this works eventually get another release here.
I know the UK is getting a new special edition of Perfect Blue with the new HD transfer sometime in the next year, if I'm not mistaken.

Hey bud, loved your fanime panels last year, was wondering if you could list the times names and places of panels for this year as fanime's guide sucks and I wanna see as much of them as I can. Thanks, excited you're back again.

I watched a fair amount of other Lupin series/movies before getting to The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. Really liked how much that show fleshed out her character and how it served as a prequel story. Gave it a 10/10 without hesitation and bought the blu-ray. Sayo Yamamoto definitely impressed me as a director, so now I'm on the lookout for anything with her name attached to it.

Kino's Journey was interesting, but I think it's for the best that it ended when it did. It was starting to get a bit stale. The places she went to and the people she met were all interesting, but the lack of recurring characters made it feel a bit too disjointed. It nailed the tone it was going for, but it was not really the kind of show that left me craving more.

I did :D My Outlaw Star and AKB0048 panel got accepted.

Did you hear back about your horror panel for AWA? :)
Ertain Jul 23, 2016 6:09 PM
Hello again, sir. I was thinking of doing a panel in the future. I will probably share the details with you in the near future. Well, provided we can communicate more. Perhaps you can send me your e-mail address?
Ertain Jul 4, 2016 8:50 PM
Btw, MoNgR3L, if you still want that video, I sent you a message about downloading it off of my personal server. I re-encoded it, and managed to shrink it down to 2.1 GB.

Wall comments are fine, if you don't mind; I've never 100% figured out MAL's PM system ^.^;;;;

One of my favorite things about Evangelion, really, was the characters and the different ways they portrayed self-hatred, depression, a desperation to achieve a sense of connection to something greater than themselves. I think that's something so many people go through and so many (shounen, in particular) series lack: an acknowledgment that sometimes when you're told you need to do something huge and scary to save the world, maybe you're simply not emotionally able to do it. Too many shows portray a character being unwilling to answer the "call to adventure," as Joseph Campbell puts it, for all of half an episode before suddenly being willing to put themselves into the risk asked of them. I don't know for how many real 14-year-olds that would be true. There's a sense of loneliness to all the characters of Evangelion (it actually, a little bit, reminds me of a fascinating article I read once about how each of the characters in Sailormoon portrays loneliness in a different way) that really resonated with me.

One particularly striking image, for me, was Asuka (who, I'll admit, was probably my least favorite character, but...) sitting in the rusted out bathtub, unable to bring herself to do anything, she was so lost in her sense of self-failure.

I'm also very interested in what director Hideaki Anno has said about Eva being, in some elements, a condemnation of Aum Shinrikyo for losing touch with reality. Aum Shinrikyo happens to be a pet interest of mine: I find the psychology of cults so, SO interesting, particularly when looked at from a cultural perspective: why did this happen in Japan? what made Japan such a ripe ground for it? I happened to be living in Tokyo at the time the final perpetrator of the sarin gas attacks was caught and Aum was back in the news, which led to a lot of talk with students about what they felt about how their country might have bred something like Aum. (Have you seen, by the way, Mawaru Penguindrum? It's from the director of Utena and hugely inspired by the gas attacks. Great show.)

What are some of the things that so draw you to Evangelion? I'm still trying to sort out what, precisely, I do or don't feel about the movie ending!

I was at your science fiction and anime discussion, the 2nd panel. We talked for a brief second after. But lots of people had questions. I did have time to tell you i missed the 1st panel lol. Thank you so much for the list . I for sure hope to get the opportunity again to actually be at the panel. ^^ i got alot anime homework to from both of your panels now

Good evening! We met at Fanime; I was one of the three girls with whom you chatted for a while after your sci-fi panel, before walking us over to the Black and White Ball. Inspired by the con, I decided finally, finally to watch Evangelion. I'd love to discuss it! I know I'm in the minority on this, but I really liked Shinji as a character; I found him to be refreshingly realistic for a shounen protagonist. What's your take on the ending (both episodes 25/26 of the series and End of Evangelion)?
TREESARETASTY Jun 8, 2016 4:24 PM
I was at akon last weekend and i ended up missing one of your panels . Anime to see before you die, which was sad, it was the one i was most excited to attend. If you have a moment of free, i was hoping you still had the list at least. Thank you so much it was a joy to see you at one of your other panels .
Ertain Jun 7, 2016 6:45 PM
I have that video from your panel on outliving your otaku expiration date. If you want it, I'll try to get it to you. I must warn you, though, it weighs in at 12.6 GB.
brothertaddeus Jun 7, 2016 7:18 AM
Went to your Anime's Fiercest Females panel at A-Kon 27 this past weekend. Started watching Lupin The Third because of that, and also got Kino's Journey. Is there anywhere I can find your full list of "fierce" female characters online, since you weren't able to cover all of them in the time allotted?
berrychan07 Mar 21, 2016 7:20 PM
Yay! I hope they do accept it! I do tons of panels here in NC, so for my 2nd AWA this year, I decided to submit my 18+ Outlaw Star one, and of course an AKB0048 one.

I really just attend conventions in NC and SC since I'm not a fan of riding in the car too much. I finished Lain, and that was definitely one interesting series. I don't think I would put it in my top horror series, since my top 3 are Mirai Nikki, Mononoke, and Umineko. I also tried to get into Genocyber, but I couldn't get into the story much. I'm way more into animated horror than live action horror. But the movie Noroi the curse would have to be my #1 live action horror movie.
