Anime Diet at Pacific Media Expo 2007!

PMX Logo

In our continuing bid toward world conquest, the US-based staff members of Anime Diet are going to this year’s Pacific Media Expo! And this time not just as nobodies, like we were for Anime Expo. No sir. This time, we have…press passes! We will have much better pictures of the Masquerade, a much better chance of asking questions of the guests of honor (which include seiyuu Yukana, and the character designer and director of Claymore–which should make Ray very happy), and other privileges. We are now too legit to quit.

PMX is a relatively newish con in LA, and probably rather small compared to the juggernaut of Anime Expo. Which means there’s a much better chance of access to pretty much everything. It’s from November 9-11, at the Hilton Hotel near LAX (the airport). We’re very excited about going as official members of the press and honored that they approved our application for the press pass. Thanks to PR manager Jinnie McManus for her prompt and efficient attention! Thanks also to Ray and Jeremy, our wonderful cobloggers and copodcasters. It was Ray’s news post that inspired Jeremy to even tell me about this con. I wouldn’t have even thought of going otherwise…let alone go for free, like we can now!

With that…see you at the con! Details to follow about our specific plans there.

  1. Too legit! Too legit to quit (hey hey!) Too legit! Too legit to quit…

    Get bucks get bucks get bucks get bucks get bucks!

  2. omo, what would you like me to ask? My “emerging press” pass doesn’t let me into private exclusive sessions with the guests, but I will be allowed into press conferences, so if she holds a press conference, I’ll be able to ask a question or two.

  3. Hmm. In that case if you’d just write especially about the time you spent with her, I’ll be more than happy about that :wub:

    Since I’ve never been to any press panels for these kind of guests, I can only go by hearsay–that it’s generally more informative than the general audience panel. But on the flip side you have a lot of press people asking dumb questions too…

    As to specific questions, there has been a couple controversies involving her, but those are probably bad questions to bring up unless you dig that stuff. Not having seen her in person, one thing that you can help answer is just how “sexy” is she in real life… Read Hashihime’s posts on her for more info.

    A safe thing to ask is about her trip and short stay in the US, and how she liked it here while studying English.
