Your’s truly will be hanging out at Sakura-Con this year with some of our partners from Sentai-Filmworks. If you’re attending, come find us and say “hello”. (It’s only polite :wink: )

They (and by extension, me, too) will have DVDs & BluRays for sale, plus the latest scoop on the new shows coming out this summer.
I’ll have some sweet info regarding a certain show that we all know & like… :whistle:

Wow, Seattle??

I don’t think I’m allowed to go that far away from home. Perhaps ShawnMerrow can come and see you.


#10

Wish I could but just raised my debt level recently by buying a computer. :frowning:


#11

I understand, ShawnMerrow, if you can’t come see me… :frowning:

Got any tips on some good restaurants for me to check out while I’m in your fair city???

Oh, and tell you friends to come out!


#12

I live on the other side of the state and been some time since my last visit to Seattle. From what I remember http://www.ivars.com/ has good seafood. I hear the restaurant on the Space Needle is nice but have never ate there. It actually slowly rotates so you can see the entire view as you eat.

I strongly suggest if you have time visit Pike’s Market and see them throw the fish. Also got some nice museums a zoo and a aquarium.


#13

For the plane, my entire carry-on will consist of energy-drinks and beef jerky.


#14

How are you going to get past that 3 oz. limit?

Oh, no!

I’ll just have to soak all the beef jerky in the energy drinks overnight.

You are a GENIUS!
Wait… what kind of beef jerky?

Unfortunately Washington is about as far away from New York as one could possibly get while still being in the United States… So You won’t find me there… I couldn’t even manage to get to the New York Anime Festival, and I could have taken the train there… I never have any free time when fun stuff happens :frowning:


#17

You guys will go all the way to Seattle, but won’t come to Ohyacon.

What’s up with that?

Don’t feel bad. I can’t get anyone to go to Con-Nichiwa with me either. :frowning:


#19

:dry: Wow, how can people not like the convention atmosphere? I gotta check on that one that was in Mobile a while back…


#20

I wish I could go to every convention. Unfortunately, I can only be in so many places at once & the contraption I bought on the internet to make multiples of myself only gave me multiple personality issues…
