Hear ye Hear ye. It has been declared that on the month of Februarius on the days of the solar calendar from the eleventh to the thirteenth in the year of our lord two thousand eleven that the royal bards known throughout the lands as the Reverse Thieves will be noted, learned scholars and orators at the festival of nerdy revelry that is Ye Olde Genericon XXIV.
Or in simpler terms we will be featured panelists, our first time as such, at Genericon 2011 which takes place at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY on February 11th to the 13th. We’re presenting three panels and barring schedule changes should be giving one panel on each day of the convention. We will be unveiling the newly revised version of our stalwart classic the Anime Recruitment panel or as Hisui likes to call it Anime Recruitment PTX-007-3C Weissritter edition. We will also be debuting our One Piece: A Portrait of Pirates and Investigating Detective Anime panels. We swear that the Detective Anime panel will be much more than just an hour about Detective Conan (although we could easily talk that long about Detective Conan). We will post information about our panels and our general schedule for the convention when everything is a bit more finalized.
Genericon will also have the deadliest married couple in all of anime and manga fandom, Erin and Noah from the Ninja Consultants, The Star of the Giants of the manga world Ed Chavez, rear-admiral of the Lohengramm Empire Walter Amos, plus Scott Fermeglia, Sushma Chandran, Daniel Condaxis, and Brendan Flaherty as featured panelists alongside us. On top of all that, Genericon will have For Tax Reasons of Ronin Dojo Community College DX fame, Uncle Yo the otaku comedian, voice actor Vic Mignogna, all three of the super star podcasters from Anime World Order, and web comic artist Jenny Blanchard of Enjuhneer as guests. A good friend of the blog Evan Minto will also be not only staff at Genericon but also he will be running several panels including a Satoshi Kon Tribute. And last but not least, the Japanese punk rockers Uzuhi are the featured band. It is all shaping up to be a fun weekend, if you are in the area we hope you can stop on by!
