I'm not really good at moderating gatherings, so if someone else would like to help, please post. I just wanted to get people thinking about forming a Natsume gathering. We can talk about a time/date once more people sign-up.

I will definitely video the gathering and post it to YouTube.

Ooh! Count me in! I was actually one of the Natsumes running around AX this year. Although mine was a last minute cosplay done so I didn't have a Book of Friends with me. I only carried around Nyanko-sensei. ; w;

Either way, I'm quite psyched for this and I'm planning on cosplaying as Natsume again next year. So I would love to join you guys. c:

Yay! ^u^ A Natsume! (Carrying Nyanko-sensei is enough to be Natsume. ^_~)
Thanks! I'll see you next year!

ahhh ;w;! I saw several Natsume Yuujinchou cosplayers too! I saw two Natsume's and one Natori! I got really excited ;w; ♥ Well, I'm not sure if I'll be cosplaying Natsume Yuujinchou or not, but I would probably be Matoba ~ I'll comment in the later future =))

Hurray!
I would love to! Can I please join!?
Some of my friends and I have been wanting to go as a group the past 2 years, but it never seems to happen! I was the Natsume that wore his winter outfit stuff xD
My friend was Taki 2 years ago, so Ill ask her to again if she can! :]
This is the year I've seen the most Natsume cosplayers and I saw a lot of Houzukis as well, it made me so ecstatic! ^^
And signing books sounds really fun too!

kazumas, were you perhaps the one that I wanted to take a picture with? :]

@mysticdragon3: That's true. Just Nyanko-sensei is definitely enough. I got more attention that I thought I would have gotten. xD
But I'll definitely have a book for next year. I'm interested in the book signing too!

@Ki0: Ooooh! Natsume in his winter outfit that I ran into at the artist alley? Then yup! That was me~
I was so sad I couldn't get a picture taken with you! ; n;

@kazumas - I knowwww, me too! :[ I was sure I'd be able to eventually see you somewhere in the hall again! ._. lol

I have an idea of something else we mighttt be able to do! (it might be hot though ><)
For those who have watched at least up to the third season, I think it'd be really fun to

SPOILER: (highlight to read)
play shadow tag! :]

@qingyin: You saw a Natori?! Lucky! Hope we get some for our gathering.
It would be so cool if you cosplayed Matoba! *o* I'll look forward to your comment.

@Ki0: Of course you can join!
By the way, luv your icon. (That same pic was my desktop for a while.)
If you were the winter-Natsume, I think I took your photo at Artist Alley. I was the Flying Mint Bunny at one of the tables, who started calling out to you, like a squealing fangirl. #^^;#
It'd be great if Taki & your friends could join us!
Those Houzuki cosplayers were awesome. Got a pic of 1...the same embarassing way I got yours. #~.~#
I don't think kagehumioni is much of a spoiler, but I won't translate it unless we all agree. It's a great idea! Thanks! It would go perfectly with a shot of Sensei's drinking party. We could always just pose like we're playing, if it's too hot to actually play the game.

Looking forward to everyone signing books! ^o^

@Ki0: Me too! I kept bugging my friend to look for you but we failed. ;__;

@mysticdragon3: The Houzukigamis were amazing! I was happy to see at least two of them wandering around. I actually got my picture taken with one of the Houzukigami when I was Natsume on Day 3. xD

I actually like the idea of kagehumioni! Although definitely if it isn't too hot and we have the room. Posing is also a great option if we can't do the game. It would be really neat if someone even brought a mat for us to sit on and we had drinks of some sort. xD

There's actually a big overhang, making a huge shaded area near LACC gathering site #2. Just above the stairs at West Hall B & Pico Blvd, gatherings have migrated there for games. If you're not afraid to trip on kimono or slippers, we could play kagehumioni there.

I get into trouble when I make too many promises, but I'm going to try and bring props for the "Dog Party". I could bring some ground blankets and obento boxes. If anyone has a sake set, that would save me the trouble of making a prop set. Or, I could bring tea sets.

I wasn't thinking about real food, but how about it? Does anyone else want to try and bring real food and/or drinks for the "Dog Party"?

Ahh, I think I know what area you're talking about. That would really be a great place to go to. Especially if we time it either in the morning or evening so then the weather will be a lot cooler too. c:

Aw, don't worry about it. If we get enough people interested, I'm sure we can all split up the work so you don't have to handle it on your own. Although, a good idea I just thought of, the "Dog Party" banner should be made and used as our "gathering sign". xD

Real food might actually be neat! We can all sit down, eat and just chat together. Depending on what sort of snacks and drinks we should bring, I might be able to bring stuff. Depending is the keyword though.

Aw, thanks. ^_^ I forgot about that option. It's like a warm, fuzzy episode...

Actually, I was secretly starting plans to make a "Dog Party" nobori. But like I said, I get into trouble when I make too many promises. Also, there's some kind of rule against signs at AX. I'll look into that.
If anything, I'm sure our gathering will be recognized by all the Nyanko-sensei plushies. ^_~

I'm not sure we can make a "Dog Party" sign, even if it's in Japanese. I saw this at the AX site and got scared:

http://www.anime-expo.org/anime-expo...de-of-conduct/

"Prohibition against the Use of Signs "
"All signs, whether for a costume prop or not, are prohibited unless approved in writing for specific use by Anime ExpoŽ. Unapproved signs will be confiscated and repeat offenses may lead to individuals being asked to forfeit your attendee badge and may result in being banned from the convention."

Not sure I want to mess with that. 0~0

Opps, guess we won't be able to have a sign/banner. It would have been cute, but oh well. We definitely don't want to get kicked out.

But, yeah, having all of the Nyanko-senseis around will be enough to show what gathering we are. xD

@mysticdragon3 - Ohhhh! I remember you! :]
I thought it was interesting how most of the people that recognized me were in the artist alley, I wonder why that is? xD
Yes, the Houzukis were great! I'm not entirely sure when the fourth season finished airing but I finished it not too long before AX started so I really wasn't expecting to see one!

I'm sad we can't have a banner =[ but sitting together, eating together, playing together, and chatting together sounds like so much fun! I hope I can get my friends to cosplay as well >< Although it's a long time from now, if things turn out the way I hope, my friends will cosplay as Sasada, Taki, Tanuma and some other youkai that... we aren't sure about yet xD
I think real food might be too expensive to bring for everyone too but drinking tea/sake together sounds so Natsume-ish!~ I can't help but smile thinking about it xD
I will see what I can bring!
