AnimeNEXT 2012

It's that time of year again: AnimeNEXT 2012 is this weekend, June 8-10, at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ. Ink and I will be there with our typical Ani-Gamers coverage, and I'll also be on four (count 'em, FOUR) panels over the course of the weekend. On Friday night I have a three-hour block starting at 9pm: Adaptations in Anime/Manga (my new panel, covering adaptations to and from anime and manga, from books to movies to games and more), Science in Anime (hosted by Vincenzo Averello from All Geeks Considered, featuring old-school anime con personality Walter Amos and myself), and The Changing Faces of Anime (my character design panel). Then, on Saturday from 3-4pm I'll be a panelist on Charles Dunbar's "Fanthropology Forum." I imagine we'll be talking about the nature of fandom and such things, so look forward to that.

Anyway, below the break I've included tentative schedules for Ink and me — as usual, conflicts will be reconciled on-site. EDIT 1: Ink made a couple changes to his schedule. If you see us, come by and say hi. I'll probably be wearing an Otaku USA shirt at some point during the con, if that helps.
