I'm the person that asked Kiyo to make the posts in the first place.
I'm admin of the DualFans forum (dualfans.com) and I help out Dagon who's the admin at TenchiForum.com, who will be leading the panel.
Great to hear there are more looking at coming. Ideally we'd see a packed room of cosplayers and Tenchi fans. I'm trying to reach as many TM! cosplayers as I can in the Mideastern States and invite them.
We're hoping to put together a panel that's not the typical "folks sit and talk about things everyone already knows" type of thing. We're looking into ways to get the audience involved, discuss things folks that may have only seen Toonami may not be aware of.
Such things might be as the Tenchi manga, which is it's own continuity based off the OAV series. Tenchi music and AMVs. The extended universe, such as the spin off series Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Photon, and more recently Saint Knight's Tale (Funimation just yesterday announced this will be dubbed TM! War on Geminar). Some other things like the Japanese novels, mangas, comics, doujinshi, and other materials that never made it to the States we can talk about too. There's truly a whole other realm of info out there that can be tapped.
Some of us have over 12 years in the fandom, so we've got a lot we can cover and hope to make it a great time. So the more the merrier.
Keep spreading the word!
p.s. if you'd like to listen to sort of a "panel series" TenchiForum does a regular podcast on Tenchi topics, which is sort of like a panel already.
