A big thank you going out to all the comrades who took time out of their busy schedule to attend my talk this afternoon at Anime Expo. I honestly thought that I was going to be talking to a couple of rows ^^;
And sorry I started just past 3PM instead of 3:15 - I wasn't sure whether there were going to be any more attendees ^^;

Today I talked about how I became to work in the creative industry field in Japan and shared some of the leanings I've picked up on my life journey so far.

Anime Expo (AX) is taking place now at the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC). The event period was from 6/30 and lasts until 7/4. My talk took place at Petree Hall and my next session will be in the same hall this Sunday (4th July) morning from 09:00AM.

Here we have Saber looking after the Lumix LX3 - which I still use and is much better in low light than the GF1. Looks like I didn't do her hair up properly ToT.

Saber is joined by Wolf's daughter Kiriha.

*thinks of an excuse* It says "2010.06" because I'm including Day Zero ^^;

Got to the hall early to set up video and audio. The projector turned out to be quite dark so had to calibrate monitor settings on the MacBook - I didn't think of doing that until the technician mentioned so.

Many other comrades came early too and during setup, Saber is having her photo taken - shes getting to be a popular girl! I should have taken her to the UK with me. But will do the next time and hopefully this December!

Still setting up. Wanted to try out the iPad VGA adapter but didn't get the chance to.

Going to leave you to gander at the rest of the photos taken during my talk as I prepare more AX posts.
Just a quick going over the remainder of my schedule:-

7/03 Sat 13:00 - 14:00 Indecent Otaku Show (Nokia Place) Seating is at 12:30
7/03 Sat 15:30 - 19:00 Fakku X Danny Choo (Los Angeles CGM Night) ESPN ZONE > 1011 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA. Map > http://ow.ly/229P2
7/04 Sun 09:00 - 10:00 Danny Choo Focus Panel (Culture:Japan + Black Rock Shooter AX Exclusive trailer showing) at Petree Hall [LP1]

Also, I hope you don't mind but I moved my autograph sessions to the meetup at the ESPN Zone on Saturday instead. Its free to get in but you pay for food if you want some from the bar. There will be a load of daughters joining us from all over the US - you cant eat them.

222 readers have signed up so far. If you don't have time to register then just turn up. Open to all ages and feel free to bring comrades.
One of the most important things for the meetup should be for you to meet other local comrades who share the same passion and interests. It would please me greatly if I can leave LA knowing that you made new comrades at the meetup who will enrich your life with friendship and new opportunities.

I also have a few comrades from the LAPD undercover who will help us keep the meetup a safe and happy one too. Next giveaway question - guess who the LAPD were? ^^;

Ah, nearly forgot to mention - thanks to Toylet for the Black Rock Shooter Black Blade Ver and BRS Plushie giveaway - t'was a lot of fun!
Toylet is a major Figure and anime apparel retailer in the US and you can check out their huge booth at the exibit halls from 629.
