Yeah, but as an industry guest, and I know its getting quite stale, but the last I even saw him [unknowingly] personally was from my first ax con from 08...Yeah, its like he's everywhere...It would have been best if they added more random/surprise/unknown guests than the ones everyone knows...>_>

But its alright, I don't mind...

I've been to a few of his panels in the past, he's definitely very entertaining...I don't think anyone expected AX to roll out with the really big guns this early anyway. The fact that they've announced two guests before Christmas is actually impressive since they usually don't start until after the new year :P

2014 cross-play plans: Hatsune Miku (default) / Maid Haruhi / Maid Miku / Tsumugi Kotobuki & Ritsu Tainaka (winter uniform), Haruhi Suzumiya & Mikuru Asahina (winter uniform)

 

8 year AX veteran, looking forward to #9!

He was there this last year, as well as the year before. He has been in attendance for a while now, as he is a local and will go as long as it is offered. He is a nice guy, and likes to go to every con that he can.

He is a gentleman and a scholar. I don't know why I have the feeling I've met him in a line somewhere.
