Missed Panels

Postby vashogun » Wed Nov 05, 2014 10:10 pm

One of the most frustrating things about conventions is that there is never time to do anything. Plus with the construction slowing down transit between locales, I feel like there were several events I wanted to go to that I missed out on. I actually only made it to one panel - the nintendo fan panel. The rest of my time was spent at screenings, photoshoots, and wandering around. Plus of ocurse splurging at the merch area.

I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on how some of the panels I missed went and what they covered.

In paticular I was interested in Gundam: A Social Commentary, and the Dragonball Z food panel.

You can also use this thread to ask about other panels you missed.

I also had trouble getting to panels on time. Even with the 30 minute gap between them, I noticed that by the time I got to the panel, there was a line that was often too long for the room space, and I would wait in line for nothing.

I also missed a few panels I wish I hadn't, but those are a bit embarrassing to talk about XD.

In re: lines - that's an unfortunate reality. We can't predict how successful we'll be. I know I was in line for fifty minutes to get through the overflow to Waifu and that my own panel, Talk Yuri to Me, has consistently had an overflow line every year. As one staffer told me after Talk Yuri, though, "keep filling the room and we try to keep finding you a bigger room next time". If nothing else, we panelists are thankful that we have so much love, but sad that you missed out.

The Gundam panel seemed rather unprepared. The people in charge took it in stride and seemed to give it their best, but apparently a couple of Gundam Jeopardy experts were in the audience and more or less hijacked the discussion.

I hope to have my Nintendo panel edited and posted online by the end of the month. :D

I was sad to miss the Critical Analysis of Anime (though that was simply because there was some other panel I went to instead), anyone care to fill in how that went?

Post con blues? Didn't get to do everything you wanted to at Youmacon? Allow me to take you back to 5pm Friday, Cobo panel room E, for Playing with Power! A Nintendo Fan Panel. We had some fun at this, though some technical difficulties interrupted me here and there and didn't let me create the perfect video I wanted to. I still made something good with some editing that I hope you all enjoy.
