And Japan Expo just officially announced it on their FB page. Case closed.

Note: For the record I think it took them 8 hours to identify the problem and roughly 24 hours to change it if you check here:

http://www.japan-expo.org/art-1128-e...formation.html

Well kinda, at least now all pre-sale tickets now give you a bracelet that allow you to return.
But I don't believe that on-site does.

In response, the Japan Expo tickets are now set to the American standard of "one ticket-all day entry".

Here is their updated response:

Quote:
Japan Expo USA
Hey everyone--After a sound beating with baguettes, management has dropped the one in/one out policy!

This policy was based on our French model, but we recognize the value of adapting to our market and being responsive to fan desires and needs

We really appreciate the time that everyone took to respond. We hope to see you all in a few short months, and dont forget registration opens shortly!
http://www.japan-expo.org/art-1326-e...formation.html


https://www.facebook.com/JapanExpoUS...ocation=stream



Wow. I have to say that responding within 24 hours is pretty damn fast.


Remember last year, how many months that it took for AX to even admit on their website, that there was a even an X-Games going on at the same time with AX? (Hcorgamer00 was the only AX staffer who was trying hard to work things out with us. Noone else would respond.) Remember how chaotic it was for the cosplay gatherings when noone else would help or respond?


Which is why, I thought it was the ultimate irony, that some of the AX staffers would take lowblow potshots & jabs at Japan Expo on their Facebook page. I also thought it was interesting that they would take down their posts on the AX FB page within a few hours. (A simple apology would have done wonders.)


By the way...I would rather get "a sound beating with baguettes" by the French than to listen to El Presidente's "bad jokes" at a AX panel & watch his terrible...I mean magnificent parking skills in action outside of a parking lot. (Besides, French baguettes and their pastries taste really, really "dlicieux".)


Oh yeah...before I forget, Mr. "El Presidente", the next time when you are parking outside of a parking lot, don't forget these words..."Allez tout droit! Puis prennez gauche/ droite!" (That's French for "Go straight! then turn left/ right!".)

Hah, nothing AX does surprises me anymore and the person who put that post up in the first place probably won't get reprimanded or anything because it was likely one of El Presidente's lackeys. I have to admit that AX lost a little respect for that ill fated post because they of all people have no room to take shots at other conventions when they have had so many well publicized issues in the past few years.

Kudos to Japan Expo for actually listening to the fans and changing their model, if only there were people in AX that had the same level of attention to the fans :/

AX announces Director for Gundam Unicorn as Guest of Honor.

I wish they would also debut episode 7 too.

Perhaps this will surprise you. Marc posted this on the private AX staff facebook page: (Screenshot)

Dunno what became of the person who made the post in question, but I know of a few cases where staffers were harshly reprimanded (and in one manager's case, dismissed) for circumstances not too dissimilar. It's not tolerated, nor should it be, and the community is right to call AX out when it happens.

Why would it surprise anyone, this is strategy #11 seen below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/36_Stra...the_peach_tree

Quote:
Sacrifice the plum tree to preserve the peach tree

(李代桃僵, Lǐ di to jiāng)
There are circumstances in which you must sacrifice short-term objectives in order to gain the long-term goal. This is the scapegoat strategy whereby someone else suffers the consequences so that the rest do not.
Cao Cao of the Three Kingdoms Period demonstrated this strategy. During a siege, Cao's supplies ran low so he called in the supply captain and told him to dilute the rice with water to save grains. When the soldiers started to complain, Cao ordered for the captain to be killed. He would explain to his troops that the captain had been selling supplies to the enemy. This raised the army's morale and they were victorious in a few more days.

She's the VA for the main character from Little Witch Academia (as well as a few main roles in other anime series), The anime by TRIGGER (former Gainax staff) which everyone has been raving about. They're also the group behind the upcoming anime Kill La Kill by the creators of Gurren Lagann.

If you haven't watched Little Witch Academia, I suggest watching it now! It's only one episode long and that's the whole series. The art is really pretty (well that's kind of expected of TRIGGER) and the characters all have distinct personalities (though the main character is a bit bratty). Since it was a one episode series, the plot wasn't exactly the greatest but it's still interesting to watch. I do wish that series was longer though.

But all in all, I'm pretty interested for a panel hosted by Trigger.

Finally a Seiyuu. Like animejunkie has previously stated, I'm also not familiar with her work.

Also on Danny Choo's site, he asked the producer for Shingeki no Kyojin, Robotics Notes, and Guilty Crown to attend. If he goes...SWEET JEEBUS!
