Is anyone going to the pre-party thing? They're selling tickets for about $15 at the Fanime store - sort of like an up close and personal with animals only it's the guests o_O (Did that make sense?)

Babbit-chan: That sure did make a lot of sense. Might as well go and pat $15 and be with them..specially Maria Kawamoto(rawr) and Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. :D
