Not sure about Seattle, Usako could tell you. For AX with Morning Musume they had a Q&A and concert and various handshake, autograph sessions. But getting a ticket was murder. Same for Berryz I heard. You gotta be up at the ass crack of dawn to get into those lines ahead of the Japanese wota, who I hear don't sleep. It was sweet justice at AX when we got there to get into line with our tickets and they realize later that they needed one and they didn't have one. Oh I wouldn't feel too bad about them, I think they got into the other ones. (I think...)

I'm all open for NYC48, anyway is Berryz going to have a Q&A or something similar. I have never been to a H!P event so I am
not sure what goes on at these events. Is it true that they can accept gifts? I was thinking about making a photo collage of East coast sights in the members offical colors.




I can indeed help answer your questions here. :danceman:

They did have a Q&A last time. Here's all four parts. (( You can hear my dorky squeaky voice in the first video when they ask the audience how they found out about Berryz. :rofl: )


Soooooo if it is run similarly as to when they were in Seattle, you will be able to see them a lot during the convention. (Opening and Closing ceremonies, guest reception, Q&A, the concert and handing out the lotto prizes.) And yes, you were allowed to bring them gifts during the autograph sessions.

Tickets for what? Plane? Convention? Concert?

Bump this mo-fo!

It's getting close. I just booked my plane tickets over the weekend. I'll be flying in to Newark around 12:30 on that Thursday if anyone else is going to be around. Apparently there's a train that runs from there which will get you to a station which has shuttles that run to the convention area.

I'm bumming a ride with Usako. Posted Image What hotel is everyone staying at to the people that are going. We should have some sort of meet-up planned.


But we're so not organized about doing stuff like that. MM-BBS, Slackers for Life! Posted Image

I booked a reservation at some hotel recommended on the convention website, but now I forget which one. I'm sure I printed out the reservation sheet, though.

I still haven't registered. I applied for a press pass and am waiting to hear from them.

The main problem is that we've got no idea what they'll be selling there. I wonder if they'll release a goods list beforehand.

Last I heard from HSU's twitter feed, "We are working on attending AnimeNEXT but still are not officially attending."

Yeah, but the main thing it WHAT they will be selling. No doubt they'll be CDs there, and they may have some special things for the event, but unless they actually advertise it beforehand, it'll be a blind buy for anyone not attending.

HSU usually has a list of what they are selling beforehand, that's what they did for Sakuracon so I don't see this as being any different.

So is anyone taking a few days before or after the convention to be able to hang out and do random things in the area? Myself and Ukyo will be taking about 3 days before or after the con to do so, but we can't decide which would be better. If anyone has suggestions, let me know

It's all up in the air right now, but I do know I'll be taking the bus down from either Boston or Worcester on Thursday and leaving on Sunday. I just have to wait to hear from Usako oh where she'll be collecting my poor excuse for a car-less soul.

The convention took forever to get the press application up online, so I filled it out over a week ago when it went up and I'm still waiting for a reply. This has been pretty frustrating. AX in 2009 was much more efficient than this.

You can wait and get them on Friday morning but there will be a butt load more people and it's been said that Berryz concert is also Friday. (Which I hope is a dirty lie! Posted Image)

Jeez, so many damn events to go to, and now more money to spend :( It seems like you would be kinda screwed if you don't get the premium wristband or whatever, especially if as many people go to this as I think they will.
