Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Dude! Good to know!

You should drop them a line on Twitter or Facebook and tell them, given the theme, that they should invite me as a guest. :)

So, Kotono Mitsuishi is gonna be a guest at the Animazement convention in North Carolina in May. If anyone is going could you please try to get me an autograph from her? She's the voice of Sailor Moon and Misato and getting her autograph would mean the world to me.

Originally, I wasn't going to attend Puerto Rico Comic Con 2019 because of the lack of worthy guests but to my absolute surprise, they managed to sneak in a last minute addition: The ever popular and controversial Vic Mignogna!

Say what you will about him, there's NO way I am NOT going to waste an opportunity that may never happen again to get my picture taken with him and an autograph. This guy voiced the majority of my anime childhood and that's something that can never be erased from my memory.

Respecting the talent of skeevy people is understandable. Throwing money at them for any reason, least of all for something as spurious as a photo and an autograph, though? Can't respect that. Most predators never get caught so I don't expect him to ever have to pay the piper, but least you can do is not help fund his, *cough cough*, "hobby".

Too bad the guy isn't an equal opportunity offender. If he went after men too I bet the apologetics for him (generally speaking) wouldn't be quite as acrobatically inclined.

Well, later in the summer I was planning on going to Fanboy Expo in Knoxville, Tennessee to get photo ops with Steve Blum, Tara Strong, Grey Griffin (basically people who already came to Puerto Rico but for several reasons I couldn't meet) and they as far as I know don't have run ins with the law so if I switched priorities to there, I guess would be fine.

Hey look its Fazmotron...

SMASH! 2019 is coming up this weekend for us Australian (NSW based) anime fans.
I figured since Eva is getting a new life on Netflix that I'd pop back in here to say hi and to see if any other EvaGeeks will be attending this year. I know I haven't been active in a while but I'd be open to meeting anyone who'd be interested (especially any old guard that remember me). Just let me know if anyone's keen, or just see if you can spot me on the day (I may wear the old NERV flag again).

Anyway, good to catch up, and nice to see the place hasn't burnt down in my absence.

Hey Faz! Good to hear from you.

I haven't actually been to a SMASH! convention since we caught up at the one in August 2013. The stars simply haven't aligned for me to go again, and to be honest, this year I didn't look up the guest list until you posted about it here. I have mostly wanted to go again to browse the Exhibitors to see what stuff I might be able to pick up, and to see what's on ... but that's about it. And the artist market seems massive now, I'm not sure I'd have to stamina to see all of what's on offer.

Hope you have a good time though, and please take some photos if you see any sweet Evangelion merch. :Kaji:

And good to hear from you my friend!

Well I'm back from SMASH2019, tired, and little sore, but I had a great time.

The best panels I saw at the event this year were with Mizushima Seiji, anime director for shows like Fullmetal Alchemist and Gundam 00, and episode director of episode 9 of Evangelion. He gave great insight into anime production, as well as a brief discussion on what it was like working on Evangelion and working under Anno. He described feeling great pressure, not so much from Anno himself, but more so to work well under a director he admired. He also said that working under Anno was a formative experience for him as an anime director, and that he learnt many things about the way Anno directs an anime and attempted to adapt them to his own anime direction after that experience, later realising it was unfeasible to work like Anno does and instead chose to focus on his own strengths as a director. Super cool, super interesting!

I didn't go as crazy this year with merch and stuff, but did grab some beautiful Berserk prints, as well as some really nice Eva pins, among other things (love me some Krabby art). Check them out here.

There was also HEAPS of cosplay, and plenty of Asukas floating around. Here's a small selection of some I managed to photograph.
I think Jeremiah Gottwald (Orange-kun) was my favourite.

Anyway, that's my wrap for SMASH this year. I'll be heading back again for next year's of course, so here's hoping for more Eva guests.

Today, my mom and I went down to Aguada for the Comic Fest and even though I wasn't able to get a selfie with Jason David Frank because the line was FOUR FRICKIN HOURS long according to staff, I still had fun posing with cosplayers as well as buying out of print anime DVDs such as the Ocean Dub of Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest and the Love Hina Christmas, Spring, and Again collection.
