Japan expo 2011
« on: May 04, 2011, 11:41:54 AM »
Japan expo 2011: 30 june to 3 july 2011

What is there to say about the biggest manga anime convention in Europe?
More than 180 000 visitors (182 546 exactly)
Endless guests from the manga anime japanese music and video game universes.
Example of guests from the previous years: Clamp, Taskeshi Obata, Natsuki Takaya, Tsukaja Hojo.

Cory's stats
Hotel: booked 11 months before the convention
Train: booked 3 months before the convention
Cosplay: begun one year before the convention
Ticket: bought a special collector ticket 5 months ago, without even knowing the guests.
I hope I won't be deceived.

The actual situation in Japan will surely have an influence on the program and the guests but so far here is the guests list.
music guests: Passpo?
Once again it's an idol (stupid) group which is guest of honor. After the akb48 and the morning musume, the festival keeps on following the idols movement. T_______________T

Manga: Yumiko IGARASHI
The author of Candy and Georgy, manga/anime from the 80's. I must admit I'm deceived by the choice but I am hopeful about the other guests.

Video Game: Akira YAMAOKA
The music composer of the video game Silent Hill!!!

Mode: not something I will attend but...
h.NAOTO
h.NAOTO: gothic lolita stylist
Hangry and Angry will have a showcase with him.


Goodies: Takeshi MIYAGAWA: a figurine maker!!!!
He worked for:     - Cardcaptor Sakura
    - Ana Uniform Collection
    - Fate/stay night
    - MagnaCarta
    - MIYAGAWA Original Figure
    - Samurai Shodown
    - Oh My Goddess!
    - Sakura Taisen
    - Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon
    - Neon Genesis Evangelion
    - Di Gi Charat
    - Chobits
    - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

What I hope about the convention:
. a better map organisation: I was constantly lost because of the complicated map and place organisation
. a better transports organisation: will the trains/tramway system will be for once well organised?
. a better food control: a LITTLE water bottle for 5 euros last year! A sandwhich at 8 euros! I hope they will have NORMAL prices for once!
.a better activity planning: for once, it would be cool to know what happens when! For example, Last year, you had to follow endless sites to know the authors signing sessions!

i think overcharging people is just a thing conventions do. i'd suggest bringing in some of your own stuff.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

It would be great to meet mangaraiders members there. I wonder if anyone will attend that convention.
