"National level" is a bunch of nonsense. There are events. Some are larger than others.

It doesn't make sense. Why are large cons "national", and small cons are "regional", even though they are fundamentally the same? The only difference is size. There are fan-run, and industry-run cons. Anime Expo is about the only industry-run anime con.

Panels hasn't even opened. So not likely. An Evangelion panel is well within the realm of possibilities, but it won't be tentative or official for a while.

Keep me updated, I don't want to miss this one like I did last year with my misunderstanding of the scheduled. First otakon threw me off.

Much agreed, and if you go to the Ohio conventions, you'll notice that the same cast of characters seem to go to Ohayocon, Colossalcon and Matsuricon. There's nothing national about it.

I don't. Nor does Drinian. That doesn't mean, however, that we can't hop in a car and drive to Ohio for a weekend of fun.

The Eva panels that The Eva Monkey ran were just awesome, I mean they were run perfectly as panels. (I'm assuming Drinian was the one helping, I forgot to ask for his username.) Completely entertaining, but at the same time so informative. I simply did not expect they would be that good - there's a clear difference between those panels and the average fan-run panel.

It's too bad the Evangelion Omake Box panel got so few people to show up, especially considering what great material was in that panel. I kind of liked getting a good seat, though. I can't wait to hear the Hellstorm Evangelion audiobooks!

Heh, I guess I was "helping." Thanks, and we were surprised how fast the Omake hour ran out.

I've posted a short Ohayocon 2011 report on my new blog: http://drinian.org/blog/8/ohayocon-2011-convention-report-in-3d

There's Panty & Stocking cosplay, in 3D, even.

I'll be staffing, per usual, as for panels, I've had one every year, but Otakon is awfully competitive, so there's never a guarantee. The submission window is still open, so panels won't get confirmations for another month or two.

I'm such a bad member of this forum, you had 3 panels and I failed to go to all three. I have minor excuses, like everyone going to bed in my room before I could get out for the 1 am Friday panel, or me inexplicably falling asleep while tweeting Saturday afternoon, or my migraine Saturday night. But those are poor excuses, and I apologize. I feel so bad for not supporting you.

At any rate, getting to hang out with you on Friday was the best time I had all throughout the con. I've pretty much confirmed those Rei and Asuka plushies I bought are from Eva @ School since I saw very similar figures marked with Eva @ School. One day maybe you and Reichu will be at a con together that I go to, and it'll be the next best thing to meeting Anno.

Evangelion Panels > Twitter

But seriously though, it's all good. Don't feel bad because you weren't there to support it, feel bad that you missed a good time. But even so, there will always be other panels. I might not return to Ohayocon, but I will continue to support Tekko, and of course Otakon is my mainstay, so there should be other opportunities to dork out.

Sir, you do us too much justice. But I will make an earnest attempt to get Rachel to come down to Otakon. I'm currently planning to take it easy this year and just do the basic requirements for staffing, so I can actually enjoy the convention for a change. So I should have more time to socialize and host/watch panels, rather than working them, and herding people around.

I forgot to ask, did that V character ever show up at the convention and confront you? If so, I really missed out on all the fun.

No, he doesn't go to Tekko. Although one of his "men" does. He wasn't able to make the event due to family obligations.

It looks like Rudolph however will be at Anime Boston. That should be interesting. No doubt he'll cross my path, though I will be avoiding him as much as possible. That's an exchange that should probably just never happen.

I was looking through the Anime Boston schedule and I saw a description of this one panel on Rei Ayanami, and sure enough, he's running it. Maybe he'll use information stolen from this site's wiki on her.

Oh, and stay away from the yaoi-loving voice actor with odd-colored hair. He doesn't take criticism easily.

I certainly wouldn't mind his using information from the wiki -- so long as he obeys the Creative Commons license and provides credit...
