AnimeNEXT 2011: The NEXT are not only in Sternbild City

Just as a heads up for everyone in the Tri-State area we will be attending AnimeNEXT 2011 this year as both press and panelists for all three days. Hisui will be appearing on five panels this year and Narutaki will be on three so you can see the Reverse Thieves every day of the convention if it so pleases you. The big Japanese guest for us this year will be Satoru Nakamura, who is another amazing Production I.G guest following up last year’s Kenji Kamiyama. If anyone has questions for him just leave a comment and we will be sure to ask at one of his panels.

We recorded a micro-podcast (less than 12-minutes long) detailing our plans in case you don’t feel like reading this post.

    Dang. I’m going to be seeing you guys more than I thought, and it’s only Friday! I haven’t even planned my Sat/Sun schedule yet. This is insanity!!!

    Anyways, two questions (since you guys begged, mainly Hisui in the podcast :D; also, you can choose one or both) for Nakamura-san would be what changes has he noticed within the anime industry or in animation as a whole, and what is his thoughts on online streaming?

    I wish I could interview him myself…except I’m not too much of a I.G knowitall, so embarrassing myself is not my cup of tea :D Anyways, looking forward to meeting you tomorrow!

What are you thinking?
