Basically we want to see what YOU guys want to do at PMX.

Ooooh~~ Everything sounds cool!!

I was at PMX last year but somehow I missed the panel...... >//< Well, actually I didn't even know about it.... O_O;; Otherwise I would have gone!!! >//<

However..... is there going to one day for the EGL events? I believe that many people would like to wear their costumes and cosplay..... and changing into and out of costumes takes hours.. :T Well I don't know... just an idea... ^^;;

Heheh! We actually printed up fliers for the Iron Loli event, but it was on Sunday right when everyone had to be checked out, so a lot of people couldn't make it.

I'd like to squish most of the EGL stuff into before nightfall on Saturday, if at all possible. (Not so) Secretly I long for a jrock room where all the panels and mini-events could be and we'd just play videos in between.

Y'know, I saw the line up of artists last year but couldn't make it due to time constraints. This year, I have the time, but the lists of J-Music performers isn't really grabbing my attention.

Isn't it possible to get the Pillows, or Malice Mizer, maybe even Sowelu to come down for the weekend?

Malice Mizer has been disbanded since late 1999. The other two, I am not sure about, but generally it's pretty difficult to get large bands to come outside of Japan.

I understand it's hard to get large bands... but but but.... what about indie bands?? *O*

^^; The music and/or guest relations would handle things like this. I just want to know what events or activities you guys would like to participate in.

^^;;;;; oh, yes yes... XD XDDDD Dude, it'd be cool if you guys can manage to make the EGL gatherings and events on the same evening or something and doesn't conflict with major events! *Q* I'd love to go for sure!! *heart*

And let's hope that more people would know about it this year. ^^;; Cause last year everything was so chaotic..... not bad for the first year con but there's still room for improvement.

I've heard from a staffer that Kagerou is in the works...so we MAY have a big name band on our hands...^_^;; That's a maybe though...don't get over excited.

Actually, Malice disbanded late 2001 or 2002...forgot which year. Hmmm...

I think they should have a lot of jrockers come to the convention so we can et pictures and I can teach them my silly jrocker dance, like I did with Phantasmagoria at Anime Expo. ^_^

Claire

Well, since no one is offering much input on what I asked +_+ if the events aren't to your liking come the con, don't say I didn't try. =P

^^;; eh.... I don't really have much opinion.... ^^;; I am just hoping that the timing would work out better this year because I'd love to go to the events! *sparkle*

And maybe instead of handing out flyers big posters by entrances would be a good way too...... because I didn't even know that there were EGL events last year... = =;;

What are you saying? I like all jrock events. They're the only ones that I go to. ^_^

Like someone said before as long as people know that there are Jrock events . Last year I was not aware of some events. I also only go to the Jrock events. Thats the only reason I am going cause other cons don't really have Jrock events. But I guess its too late for suggestions.

This is sort of related...

Due to numerous requests from JRock fans, Moonchild will be added to the Asian Cinema program.

The jrock events were in the programming booklet and we even made fliers.

T_T

I don't know what else we could have done. ^^;

Hmmm. I have a copy of Bara no Konrei, Malice Mizer's movie from the Klaha era on my comp. I don't know if we'll be allowed to view it. Or maybe we could have a gathering and a small private viewing of it. Hmmm. Anyone got ideas?

When I said events I met the gatherings sorry. Like the lolita gathering.
I wanted to know if there is going to be any kind of official Jrock gathering cause that would be nice. Sorry if someone already asked this.

Yes. That's what I meant. I'll go make one now if people will show up. And then we can decide where, when and what to do.

And unlike pip bernadette, I WILL show up. XD

**marches over**

Generally gatherings are organized by cosplayers themselves, but if we get to do a decorated photo area that's designed especially for jrock/EGL, you guys will definately hear about it. ^^

*raises hand* *Q* I wanna see it!! Or maybe we can just see it after the con in the hotel room or something. XD

I think everything is confirmed for one additional VK band being brought by Broccoli. Announcement should be going out in a few days.

We have the green light on a small event that we hope will provide a photo opportunity for the VK & JRock cosplayers. It will be at night and will not compete with the VK band. We're hammering out the rules this weekend and will post it on Monday.

I think the tea area idea is neat, though I'm not an EGL person. :3

December 2001. ^^; You just have to go to the official site and it says so right there. XD 2001/12/11.

Sigh!!! The huge JRock band we wanted can't make it due to their tour in Japan.

On the bright side, Avex will have a panel at PMX to make an important announcement to that band's US fans...

Hopefully next year...

Thanx for keeping us updated!!! :toothy:

So are the events about set now or will there be more?? Do you know if more people are registering this year?
