This year's Anime Conji though? It sounds like to me it's saying, "if it was online and/or shown at other cons after July 3rd, 2013, it's okay. Just can't be online/shown before that day" Which would deem yours to be okay. At least, that's how that AMV statement looks to me.

You know what, stupid me. I didn't see that 2012. I thought it was 2013.

Could be misinterpreting you, or the rule, but I'm just trying to help just to be sure.
Your interpretation is correct, Valkrinos.

El_Duque, you're not the first to have misunderstood that, so I'll make a point to make the wording clearer in next year's rules. My apologies. Clever song for your entry, btw.

Thanks, yeah I know some places have their "freshness" rule and it can't be displayed to the public at all prior to the event and that was the first thing that hit me on the head. I went back and it said 2012. Derp me.

Yeah, don't get me wrong..she's a very talented individual and a great cosplayer. But, this announcement just doesn't do much for me...well, time to wait for the next announcement. Still waiting to hear what musical acts they'll be bringing over as well as possible seiyuu

In terms of the 2013 guests at AX...

Alodia Gosiengfiao is a famous cosplayer from the Philippines, and she made various appearances in Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia. She's also a good friend of Danny Choo, and she would frequently make joint appearances together with him throughout Asia. (Like Danny Choo, she can also speak English.) It's quite possible that Danny Choo invited her over this time to come to AX. (She attended the San Diego Comic Con a number of times as well.)

Being that I'm a big fan of Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Shakugan no Shana, I am glad to hear the news of the character designer, Noizi Ito as a Japanese guest for AX.

Interestingly enough, this is not her first exclusive U.S. appearance. She was a guest at the anime con in Hawaii, Kawaii Kon earlier this year, and she was also at Sakura Con just a few years ago.

Don't be surprised if Otakon, Sakura Con, and Fanime gets the biggest and baddest Japanese A-list guests now. The days of AX having the biggest & baddest Japanese guests are most likely over for AX, due to their current financial problems, and financial mismanagement. They have to take drastic severe budget cuts just so the con can survive each year. That fiasco with Lattanzio in 2010 almost bankrupted them, and the damage that he did was so extensive, that AX is still reeling from it today financially. (You can thank Latte for all that.)

And yes, A-list musical guests are expensive. (They generally cost more so than the producers or the anime or manga artists.) Don't be surprised if there is a cutback on that department as well, and the lineup leans more toward the B & C-list category, instead of A-list category for Japanese musical guests.
