Anime Expo 2017 Prep

Somehow I got roped into pressing at AX again, despite paying for Premiere… Should’ve said no but welp.

Just a page of links and what I know that can be shared. This year I have not had as much time collecting info, but here goes.

Sentai Filmworks here. Not much to note.

Mangagamer has some stuff. Probably nice for the usual commission hunters.

FUNi – If you care about FMP take note here.

Atlus has a food truck tie-in

Fakku – MEME50 huh.

Sekai Project – Bring seiyuu already lol.


Kadokawa has a PR without much details but I guess check FB later?

GSC, in case you hate money. Not too terrible this year.

Visual Arts LOL

Bookwalker – Danmachi author…

Aniplex USA – Man, Kawasumi is coming again but I can’t do anything about going to the FGO panel. And I am playing the game right now…

Oh yeah, there’s also Bushiroad Grand Festival (US ver). Mini stage schedule. Main stage schedule. Based on what I know you go early to line up to go in and buy stuff to get tickets for autograph or other things. Basically try to budget an hour to travel between events, traffic willing.

Crunchyroll is probably holding back because they are throwing their own party in Norcal later this year.

Key things to note about the two AWM shows, Japan Kawaii Live and Japan Super Live.

  • People will be distributing call books. Check my twitter for location.
  • Make time to pick up your tickets from AX Will Call booth near LACC south hall entrance. There’s a 4 hour minimum pickup time before your first show. This means if the show is at 7pm then you need to pick it up by 3pm. That’s tight on 6/30 to say the least. If you need to, AX offers ability to pick up tickets at the venue directly by emailing them. That said you can pick them up on 6/29, and starting 8am on 6/30.
  • The gist here is AX wants to enforce badge and ticket check at will call. It sucks because the sensible thing to do is have MS Theater staff check instead, but welp. Considering that JKL is well-sold it means a lot of people will have to deal with 6/30 problems on 6/30. I’m leaving my tickets with my name for the time being, can always change the names on your ticket later.

AX Autograph rules here.

On 6/30 and 7/1, I believe AWM will have goods sales at the Microsoft Theater. Better check the day of.
