Hello all, and welcome to the official forum for Animated Spring 2017! YES FRIENDS, THIS IS IT. You found it.
Name: Evan (I’m one of your guides!)
From: Los Angeles, CA
Fave Anime: At the moment, Yuri on Ice. Because it is precious and adorable and other adjectives.
Looking forward to: Meeting all of you!
Something random about you: I still have a bunch of old VHS fansub tapes in my closet. I don’t NEED them, but they’re my childhood so I can’t bear to part with them…

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 fellow tour participants!
Fave Anime: Yuri!! on Ice currently because of feeeeels
Looking forward to: Enjoying Japan with my husband, brother, + friends who are also coming on the tour, making new friends, and dragging my husband to Otome Road with me while I go on a fujoshi-shopping spree
Something random about you: I freaking LOVE pugs. I am currently practicing how to say “May I pet your pug” in Japanese in case we come across any of them on this tour
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone on the tour! We went on the Animated Summer 2014 tour and had so much fun – can’t wait to visit Japan with PacSet again :)

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 ;)

Fave Anime: Like a lot of People I loved Yuri!!! On Ice from last season, but my favorite overall is still Neon Genesis Evangelion. I love every bit of animation produced for that series (Including 3.33 which a lot of people seem to not like).
Looking forward to: Just being in Japan. It will be my first time traveling outside of the country without anyone I know so I am looking forward to that experience as well to making new friends!
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

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?

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?
March 17, 2017 at 2:17 pm #5531
Travis and I are flying in around 7 but would be interested in meeting up at the hotel as well.
March 17, 2017 at 7:35 pm #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.
