Not familiar with her work, but eh...
I find it interesting that her, and her mom, Keiko Han,
(Luna and Queen Beryl in Sailor Moon) will be at animazement
this weekend. Is she staying in America until June? Or flying back
to America (for AX) in about a month? As a huge Sailor Moon fan,
I would have rather had Keiko Han at AX instead.

Hmm, AX mentioned a guest announcement tonight at 8 but have yet to see anything on their FB page. It would be so freaking awesome if Ms. Han brought her mother along as well ^_^

EDIT: Never mind, just saw that the announcement planned for tonight had to be rescheduled

Could it be that everyone went to Fanime?

Not personally interested in Megumi Han. I haven't watched anything in her filmography.

I am going to AX purely for seeing Kaya. This is my first time going to AX, and just wondering how does the concert ticket works? When I pre-reg, I don't see any option for the concert ticket. Can anyone tell me how to get one ahead of time?

Welcome to AX! ^_^ I hope you have a good time.
My first AX was also my first con. I'll never forget it.

Back to the topic at hand ...
They will let us know when concert tickets go on sell.
They seem to be doing later this year compare to past years.
They still have more musical guest to announce.

According to the AX FB page and forums, more info should be released about main events as far as ticket sales, policies and the venue for main events in the next week or two. My guess is that once all musical GoH are announced (Starmarie doesn't count as they are industry guests) they'll start posting up the info.

This is what I got from the AX forums:

I will report back if I hear anything from the Press/Industry Department.

Thank you for your patience and understanding! ^-^d
Press is taking some time...hopefully they don't decide things too late aka after the June 1st price increase.

Per Anime News Network it looks like the head of Trigger and some staff will be attending AX in addition to Megumi Han

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-to-anime-expo

Yeah, that definitely makes things a bit more promising for AX!

Thanks for the response. I hope they sort things out before the next pre-reg. increase, just in case some people don't get approved.

If they're really taking that long and they approve/deny everyone that has applied up to this point after June 1st, they should leave the pre-June 1st price up for like a week for those who got denied.

I'm not sure what to think. He's the first guy to fund an anime via crowd-funding, and he has one project I've at least heard of before, but I don't gravitate to his work.
