Therapy Sessions at Anime Expo

Official logo for Anime Expo.

Just wanted to give a heads up to everyone that I will be traveling to Los Angeles, CA to attend Anime Expo 2013. This will be my first Anime Expo. It might actually be a nice experience for once since the death of New York Anime Festival in my area.

There will be tons of things to do and see, so I’m a little nervous. I’ll be working with GoBoiano to provide tons of anime coverage for everyone. So follow their Twitter if you want to see what I’m up to.

I’ll basically be running around all over the convention center and freaking out over how big the crowds will be. 

There will be manga panels from the big publishers that I hope to attend. They are:

July 4: Shonen Jump: Creating the World’s Most Popular Manga

July 4: Vertical Manga 2013

July 4: Digital Manga Inc. Presents: Manga Without Borders

July 6: Kodansha Comics

July 7: VIZ Media Panel (They have literally 3 freaking panels at AX. This one has to be the most manga-related.)

Of course, there’s other popular and quirky panels I will be attending like George Wada (producer of the Attack on Titan anime), K (Behind the Scenes & Q&A), SUNRISE, Kazuhiko Inoue, “Writing about Anime: Anime Journalism & the Web”, “Starting Up Your Own Anime Business” and hopefully a couple of academic panels

If anyone has any survival tips for Los Angeles, do tell. All I have is this food truck recommendation list from one of my favorite anibloggers.

Ticket to LA? $400+

Hotel? Free of charge.

Other costs? Probably a lot.

Getting a glimpse of some of the greatest minds in Japanese pop culture and seeing what makes them tick? Priceless.

About that Attack on Titan infographic I wanted to make before AX, it’s going to be done right when the anime series ends this Fall. I have to learn a few new things that may take some time.

I will post an entry when I’m there with a few photos! So stick around if you want to see some California love!

The Diagonal: Interning at Vertical for New York Comic Con →


On Interning: At NYCC

I already offered my thoughts on New York Comic Con from the attendee’s perspective, so here is the aforementioned and previously hinted at, (for all three of you regular readers) blog post about interning for Vertical at NYCC. There’s a fair amount to say about it, so I…

A pretty good read for anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like to work in the U.S. manga publishing industry. Much props to Chris as I know him personally and it’s good to see him do well.
