If you're interested in music, give this a look:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-904783/crunchyroll-presents-anamanaguchi-and-special-guest-headliner-live-at-anime-expo-2015

Right now Anamanaguchi is confirmed, but they're announcing a second artist next month. Premium+ members are eligible for free tickets to the loge section or discounts on others. The actual post has more details.






Thanks a ton I will check it out. Seem like the coupon will come Monday

My #1 piece of advice for you as a new congoer is this: wear comfortable shoes.

If you get your badge on Day 0 the line shouldn't be too bad. Just don't wait until Day 1.

How early you should get in line varies wildly based on how popular what you are going to see is and what size room it is in. Some panels you can just walk in the door at the scheduled start time. Other panels the line will fill 45 min before. Generally, a popular guest means a lot of people.

You may want to rethink carrying a zillion bottled waters around with you all day, but its up to you. If you do a lot of activities where you carry a heavy backpack around all day, maybe it wont bother you.

I would also be interested to know what premium+ benefits CR is offering at AX other than the seating discounts, if any. Might convince me to sign up ;)

I haven't attended since 2009, so I got a Friday ticket as a reward for (hopefully) surviving the State Bar of California's FYLSX. My wife still hasn't given me a budget for what I can spend, but I know that I'll be on the hunt for Ika Musume, Yuru Yuri, and Himegoto items.

The last time I went to Anime Expo was back in 2007 and I had a blast! I'm sure its only gotten better. I remember they had a voice acting contest where contestants were given a scene from an anime series and had to do the voice work for it. It was pretty fun to watch, the contestants looked like they had a lot of fun and the prize was pretty cool. Some of them were really good too! I wonder if they ever made it into the industry. Do they still do that contest?

Besides all the awesome anime stuff the highlight was definitely seeing Skin play live! (Japanese super band - Gackt, Miyavi, Yoshiki and Sugizo) now I'm not the biggest fan of Japanese music, but they had the place rocking! Maybe I'll make my return to Anime Expo in 2016

Hi, acidfarting!

I'm japanese anime fan, and planning to attend at AX.
'cause I desided to attend recently, I couldn't buy the Premier Fan Badge;-(

I and my friend, she's in the same situation as me, really need the Premier Fan badges.
If you haven't found anyone to give your badges, please send them to us.

'Cause now I'm in Japan, I think the best way to transfer is that you send the badges to the hotel in LA where I'll stay and I pay the fee to your account by bank remittance.

In either case, I hope I could have a reply back from you.
I beg your kindness.

Does anybody here have bought Premier Fan Badge, and come to be not able to attend?

I'm looking for someone to transfer the badge to me, I really need the badge.

Haha, good luck! If you find me at the con I'll hand over all my 2&3L gear if you like (I'm up for the bar at the end of July); Its all yours if you want it.

I'll be heading up from Anaheim. If anyone needs a ride and is willing to split on parking, PM me!

All in, gears ready.

Can't wait to cheer on my favorite fan-artists like Snowgem, Linai, and Yojambo.

My buddy Shinichiro will have a panel on E-SAKUGA for the iPad at 6:30 PM on Saturday in WS2. Definitely don't miss if you are an Evangelion 3.0 fan.

My buddy Ryan will be a panelist in the Tiltmouse Inc panel on Friday 7:30 PM in LP5. He might be unwrapping the Indie game he's been working on, and he's a huge Momo (To Luv-Ru) fan.

If you've got the 2L/3L Barbri outlines, I'll take you up on that.

I'd like to have like an actual site get together and get a bunch of people from the forums here, but I don't know if people would actually be interested in doing that. Then you could go and make some friends.

I won't be there, but thought I'd drop links related to Crunchyroll's announced activities, in case you missed them.

/forumtopic-904299/schedule-updated-crunchyroll-at-anime-expo

This concert event was mentioned previously by someone else upthread, but doesn't hurt to share it again
