    Name: Chris
    From: Astoria, OR
    Fave Anime: Current Season: Gabriel Dropout (Hilarious and Random, reminds me of Lucky Star) But favorite overall: Way too many to count… but if I had to choose 1… Clannad, the story is great, characters well done (you actually care about each character introduced) and it is always an emotional story no matter how many times you watch it.
    Looking forward to: Meeting new friends on a Japan tour
    Something random about me: Too many random things… I keep track of how many anime episodes I have seen in my life (currently over 6,000 episodes overall).

    I have been to Japan already on the Animated Summer 2015 tour and I am looking forward to seeing Japan in a different season! See you all in 2 months!!

    Hi everyone!

    Name: Steph
    From: Winnipeg, Manitoba
    Fave Anime: I absolutely adored Yuri!!! On Ice this past season, and I can see some of you did as well which is awesome. I’m also a huge Sailor Moon fan.
    Looking forward to: Exploring Japan with my husband, hunting for Sailor Moon merch, eating a ton of food (specifically ramen and takoyaki) and hanging out with everyone on the tour! This will be my first time in Japan and I’ve wanted to go since I was 13 so just being there will be amazing.
    Something random about you: When I was 14 I found out that there was an anime club at the University not far from me and they would post their weekly showing schedule online. So I would look up the times were showing Card Captor Sakura fansubs, sit in the back of the room and watch the episodes and then leave before anyone was the wiser ;)

    Something random about you: I have had the unfortunate experience of being hit in the face with a rake like in old cartoons. It was the most random thing I could think of off the top of my head. :D

    Hey everyone,

    One month to go!!

    Who all is excited?!? I’ll arrive in LA around the late afternoon/early evening of March 17th. I know PacSet will meet us at the airport but is there a place where we all can hang out before we check into our hotels (for those that chose that option) for the night to prepare for the flight to Japan?

    Totally excited got the countdown on my phone and everything. I don’t know anything about LA but I’d love to hang out and meet anyone I can.

    Hey All,

    I am arriving in LAX at around 5:30. Do the people that are flying into LA before leaving for Japan tomorrow want to meet at the hotel (Sheraton at LAX) and we can have a hangout there instead of trying to find somewhere in LA to meet up?

  • #5531


    Travis and I are flying in around 7 but would be interested in meeting up at the hotel as well.

  • #5532


    We just arrived at the hotel. We are planning on grabbing some food. If anyone would like to meet up or join us, we will be in the lobby at 8. Travis has a green golf polo on and I have green express shirt.
