Or perhaps they just want to start early because they fear Japan Expo might be able to bring in a big name or two. With air travel being the mess it is today, some people like to plan pretty far in advance.

I will most DEF be going to JAPAN EXPO USA this next year I am giving up 5 other Con's to attend. I am looking forward to some BIG Name Music Guests! although the Theater that is in the Convention center only seats like 700 people?...

As long as AX keeps bringing in the Musical GOH I will continue going it's pretty much what I go for anyways. I don't attend Panels or gatherings. Concert, Autographs and Dealers Hall those are my 1 2 and 3 at AX.

Meh...if the concert is free as the press release says it is, then I'll check it out. Otherwise, not going to spend a dime or use the free concert ticket that comes with my Premier Pass on this one.

You mean this year?

I'm hoping they're holding back on some big surprise. though competition is stiffening with Japan Expo entering the fray.

If by this year, you mean 2012, then yes. (I think in school years...so that's already last year XD)

I'm just kind of upset that BotB wasn't held last year, masquerade was disorganized, no Nokia, etc.
And of course it all happens the one year I decide to fly across the country for it.

I don't remember where I heard it first, but I've heard it a lot since; that 'the standard' for the main AX guests of honor is A-class talent from Japan that have never performed in the US before.

That can be true, but the last couple of years, at least on cosplay.com, a lot of the Japanese guests receive the response of, "... Who?"

No offense to the existing staff that for the most part do a good job of running things before, during and after...but I'd rather stick to attending

No offense to the existing staff either, but I wouldn't want to take orders from a boss whose name is Marc Perez. I've seen how he treated his people within the SPJA in the past. (Especially with the abrupt firing of Jason Pier from the AX Live show.) Some people may have the long endurance to work with Marc. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. (I also don't have the patience to cover for him if he doesn't show up again at AX, like he did in 2012.)



I wouldn't mind working with Kris to help make things better for AX attendees, but unfortunately, he got booted out of the SPJA.

*PostNote: As Access has pointed out, those positions are also unpaid volunteer positions. These positions are not a quick 4 day volunteer position when AX is in full swing. This means that you get to work for Marc Perez on a very long term basis for FREE.
