Small Otakon Update

Makoto Tateno at Otakon

Hello Everybody this is your weary blogger, thought I would quickly tell you a little something something about Otakon. I waited two hours in the pre-reg line because my bro and cuz decided last minute that they would also like to attend, so I purchase badges for them as well. I hopefully will be able to take a pic of the badges later. I attended a couple of panels really. First was Yellow author Makoto Tateno, whom this lucky gal got to take a picture with. I then attended the Madhouse panel where I got to see previews for there new anime Red Line and Highlander, both which seemed really interesting. Next I attended the Funigirls panel where I got some great swag including a Kodacha DVD. I briefly got to go through the Dealer's room as it was packed and I barely got to see the wares for sale, but hopefully tommorrow. As for license, Funigirls declared that Funimation will be annoucing a major license tommorrow, and rumor is the Honey and Clover, Nana and Ouran High School Host Club have all been licensed, just not by Funimation. Hopefully I will find out tommorrow. Well That's all folks, I am pretty beat and I barely touched the surface of Otakon. I hope I can update and get better pics for you tommorrow. This is like a two second video I took, which you can view at http://s77.photobucket.com/albums/j55/Otaku29/?action=view&current=otakon2006026.flv
It's nothing much just a quick look at the lobby.

P.S - Funigirls mentioned that Trinity Blood will be airing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim slot. So stay tuned for it's arrival to T.V.

    Wow it looks busy there even for the first day.
    Kyoko said there's a lot of BJD owners there too so I hope they're ok in the crowds.
    So lucky to meet Matoko!
    Have fun on your second day!
