Wondercon 2009 Video Diary – Saturday

EDIT: as per your requests, I’ve removed the music anytime anyone is talking. I relistened to it and I agree that it was distracting.

Wondercon, Comic Con’s sister convention, is one I never quite expected to go to since it’s not really about anime/manga. However, I was invited as press, and it gave me an excuse to go to San Francisco and use my frequent flyer miles. Though I expected to only “half cover” it, I still managed to snag as much footage as I normally take for a video diary at any of our full-press coverage conventions!

Specifics: I cover the Otaku USA magazine panel, fairly extensively too: they talk about yaoi, yuri, and the future of anime and manga in America. There’s the usual fan interviews of course, and also Masquerade coverage, though in many ways it’s different from Masquerades at anime cons (not nearly as much focus on skits, and short).

Enjoy the video! The next time you see one will probably be at AX 2009.
