To me, this is just presentation. It could be the best art in the world, or the absolute worst, and it honestly wouldn't make a whole lot of difference. People don't go to a convention for the pretty picture on the cover of the program book, it barely even factors into anyone's thinking at all.

I often believe that commercial art should have a meaning and message aside from just looking nice. This is more dignified than last years and does more to hint acknowledgment of some of varying sub genres of this community. From what I gathered, the artist was not given much direction aside from some basic instruction or theme. From there, they create what they wish and we roll the dice of chance.
Was the artist was inspired by Infinite Stratos?

It has nothing to do with the previous three years theme. I mean last years looked like the beginning to a cyber... ecchi yuri or something! I like the man with the tap hat and girl with red hair. It was elegant, cute and not to mention appealing..It seems like this one is a promotion for an anime on its own..

Tomorrow is the last episode of AX Live and they will also have a GoH announcement. I hope this one will be good.

Not bad for a character designer type GoH. Can now we get some musical GoHs please?

Finally a guest I can be excited about...I'm sure I have some Haruhi merchandise somewhere to sign.

Hopefully AX keeps the good announcements like this coming (especially for musical guests), but I'm not going to get my hopes up.

I see where people can like this one. Not my cup o' tea, but decent, nonetheless.

Is this AX's new slogan? It's the last part of the announcement.

I agree with this. Although I'm not a huge fan, I have a few friends that are excited to see her.

From the AMV Contest.

Also, please note that we have a new “freshness” rule. Any video that was
ever publicly accessible online prior to July 3rd, 2012 or has ever
participated in any event prior to that date is ineligible to participate.
Ugh, really? I've submitted the AMV I want to send to AX at other cons so that means it's ineligible. That's great.

Hmm... I wonder if that will decrease entries.

I checked Otakon's AMV contest rules and they almost have the same thing. Except if your entry has won before at other cons than it is ineligible. I think that it is much fair. Not a whole lot of people browse Youtube and animemusicvideos.org just to watch AMVs all day.

I could be wrong, but it feels like you may be thinking they're saying "if it has been entered anywhere else, it can't be entered at AX", but it appears it's saying if it's been submitted anywhere else before July 3rd, 2012, it's ineligible, but it sounds like if it's been submitted to many other cons after that date, its still okay.

Could be misinterpreting you, or the rule, but I'm just trying to help just to be sure.

I have submitted my AMV to Anime Conji but it was not selected as a finalist, but it was screened during pre-show.
