It appears that I will be doing a solo run at AnimeNEXT this year. For everyone who wanted to see Narutaki at a NE convention they will just have to wait for Otakon. Until then I will be there with my reporters hat on taking in everything there is to see. I am a little disappointed there are no super keen Japanese anime guests but such is life. That usually just means that 2013 will have someone amazing. I did notice a good deal of abridged panels. That and Pokemon panels. Odd to see so many of them.
For the three people who care that also means that my Fate/Zero review will be delayed. Not EXACTLY sure when I will get that out but I will try to write it up sooner rather than later. No promises.
Until then here is my tentative schedule. As always this is subject to my fickle whims as well as my need for food and sleep.
