Scheduling with my Anime NEXTel

(note: No Ongoing Investigations this week.)

I have always enjoyed AnimeNEXT because for a mid-sized con it often goes that extra mile to feel like a top 10 North American anime convention, even when it is not. But one of the things that has saddened me recently is the lack of a blockbuster Japanese industry guest. 2013 is a return to form with Hiroshi Shimizu and Sayo Yamamoto which makes me remarkably happy. It is a Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine one-two punch. Hiro Usuda is also pretty fascinating and adds to the solid Japanese guest factor. On the American side, I am pretty sure Mike Toole will get some major crushes amount internet fandom.

Sadly, Narutaki is far too cool and busy to visit the plebeians in New Jersey in the flesh but she will be there in spirit. So here is my tentative schedule. I have highlighted my panels for anyone who want to see my solo work.
