    Where is Daryl Surat? RIGHT BEHIND YOU.

    Luckily I’ve already met and gotten to hang out with Yasuhiro Imagawa of Giant Robo fame. Still, it would’ve been proper to get Giant Robo and Tetsujin 28 stuff autographed for the sake of collecting all his different autographs, since he uses different signatures for each series he works on. For now, my autographed Shin Getter Robo and Violinist of Hameln shall suffice. Man. All the shows everyone’s watching now are things for which I haven’t seen a single episode.

    Anime Convention Survival Tip: assume that everyone is jailbait, even/especially if they’re dressed like this:

    Would you say the Greek parade was more or less exciting than say, ? Suckas gots to know.

    hello Juneau!

    Red versus Blue is a machinima series, made using Halo (not Counter Strike). It’s quite possibly the most famous and successful machinima series ever, and it’s available on DVDs or over the intertubes. You guys obviously failed to plan for that segment of the cast, and if you failed to plan, you must have been planning to fail.

    By the way, i have found it true that in any context, if someone asks you to “guess how old i am” or if they note that “people think i look older than i actually am,” the subject in question is no older than 16.

    Great show! I majored in Japanese Lit, and I’m a huge Utena fan, so if you could get me a copy of that undergrad thesis (with the author’s permission, of course) I’d be very interested in reading it =)

    Done! I’ve graduated, so I don’t write many papers these days, but I’ll be sure to refence you should I write an essay sometime =) I never mentioned anime in my term papers, actually, but I did do a comparison of romanticism and themes in Lord of the Rings and Genji once, so I can sympathize with frantic research.
