News: New York Anime Festival 2008

Noah and I will be at NYAF in the Artist’s Alley, table number 15!

I will be on the OtakuUSA Magazine panel at 3 PM on Friday!

We’re sharing the table with the folks from the A!Pon vidcast, Chaotic Unicorn, this guy named Taz, and maybe even Dookie Poo. The Angry Otaku, whom we’ve had on our show in the past, will also be there.

A slight word of warning: Although I will be at the con on Friday, Noah will not, and I won’t be at the table much. Your best bet is to try to catch us on Saturday or mid-day on Sunday.

The T-shirts we have left are all Youth or XXL.

We review the JAM Project concert.
Note to first time concert goers:
– Don’t wear the band’s T-shirt to their concert, you will be “that guy.”
– If the band leaves after their “final number” and the house lights don’t turn on, there’s going to be an encore. Don’t leave!!

Gerald’s favorite: Kappei Yamaguchi’s hair
