From what I've heard, I'm assuming the dislike of Jamie McGonnigal stems from the masquerade judging at last year's AnimeNext.

In any case, I'm definately looking forward to the con

By the way, Oshi; did you know that ADV is going to release Final Fantasy Unlimited?

Regarding Jamie McGonnigal

Um... guys, just so you know...

That whole issue has been resolved. Anything fishy proved to be just a coincidence.

So let's move on, okay? He's still well-liked as a voice actor.

Oh, and the cosplay rules 'n such will be posted up soon. Emmy & I just need to finalize some things. ^_^ Gots some changes in store!

yaaaaaay!

seeing as im going to be going to school in danbury I will also be going to far more NY cons because even though Im still in CT Danbury is like 30 minish depending how you travel [hehe] from NY *excited*. Sounds like a great con, and I'll already be all settled in at school at that point too



hope to see a great turn out there
