Hi, everybody, it's me, convention-sick Dave, and bluuuuuuuuuuuuuugh, I feel like shit.
But yes, if you're here from any of the panels, thanks for coming. If you aren't here from the panels, and that's the more likely case, I'm going to tell you what I ran.
MD Anime was gdgd Fairies, Idol Fighter Su-Chi-Pai, and the dubbed first episode of Garzey's Wing, which was dropped on the crowd Tomino-style with no explanation. All of these went over really great! I wasn't completely sure that people would be into gdgd's style or see the same mockumentary (BUT REAL OFFICE DESPAIR) appeal of the Suchie Pai stuff, but they loved it! Garzey's Wing, of course, I had full confidence in.
I used some tokusatsu intermissions for this panel to break it up: the first fight scene of Goggle Five and the Battle Fever J scene where the heroes first put on their suits... and dance.
MD Anime 18 was a guided tour of the Blood-C TV series, and after that the full length of MD Geist. Very simple panel, very effective. I combed through Blood-C for both its most boring parts and its most disgusting parts, and by the end the audience had both begged for mercy from the rampaging vampire hordes... and from Saya's songs about what she did this morning. Both the MDA panels were huge raving successes and again, thank you all for letting me entertain you.
The Game Center CX panel was okay? I actually spent the most amount of time on this one, and I think to the crowd it looked like the one I spend the least amount of time on. On a third straight hour of paneling with little sleep and too much caffiene, I actually felt myself crashing during the panel. Worse still, my presentation wound up shorter than anticipated, Media Player Classic started to crash on certain files... basically I could have done a hell of a lot better.
The mahjong panel I was late for. Really late. I apologize. First time I've ever been late to a panel. Blame me for going for a nice breakfast and not realizing exactly how long that takes in Long Island! I ran the panel at super-speed to a tiny but surprisingly interested group. Thanks to the people who stuck it out, and I'm so, so sorry to the people I abandoned. Won't happen again.
Other than that, I-Con was a good time as usual. Thanks to staff for arranging things: you all work too hard and I appreciate it.
