Hi, guys. This weekend, among other things, I'm putting the finishing touches on Astro Toy and the upcoming panels at I-Con next weekend.
Did you know that there's a POWER TEAM coming to I-Con this year? Two other cool guys I know are going to be present: Mike Toole from ANN and the former Anime Jump, and Vertical Inc marketing man Ed Chavez. Both of these guys are absolutely unstoppable. They know about a hundred times more stuff than I do and they're totally gonna put me to shame, but it's all for you, Long Island congoer! All for you!
As for myself, I'm hurriedly slapping together Most Dangerous Anime (and its 18+ equivalent), the featured titles for which are, as always, a secret. I have something so special lined up for the daytime panel that I don't even know if it'll work!
What is Most Dangerous Anime? MDA is something that grew out of my love of spectacular failures in anime that entertain despite themselves. To give you an idea, the things I've run at these panels include Musashi Gundoh, the unfinished cut of Gundress, Valanoir, and other similar disasters.
This isn't strictly a "bad anime" panel, it's more a "crazy shit" panel. It's named for MD Geist, after all. It's been a hit at I-Con every year and I'm looking forward to doing another awesome one! Come by if you can, I promise it'll be good.
