Anime Fest Panel Poll



It's that time of year again. Anime Fest is asking folk to vote for their panels. Anime Hell is one of them.

TIME TO GO VOTE.

Now, granted, only paid members can vote, so it's really not that much different from any election. Ha ha.

Anime Hell Facebook Page

Head over to the new Anime Hell Facebook Page.

Bad news, kids



If you were looking forward to seeing Anime Hell at A-Kon this year, don't. We're not doing it. No Dogsnack. No Hard Gay. No Camay Walk. No Kazoos. No Hell Nurse Katie. None of that.

I hear you asking, "Why? Sweet lord, why?" Well, we contacted A-Kon this year, at the same time of of year as we have the last few times, and got the following reply:

A-kon has for many years been shifting towards an environment where we do not seek out talent, we have talent beating our doors from panels to artists, and everything beyond.

Unfortunately this year I actually had a waiting list for groups and rooms starting in October. Additionally there was a last minute unscheduled change that leaves us without our largest video space for half of the convention, as it is becoming Registration. We are making due [sic] with all the changes but we don't have space between programming and events to fit you guys in this year, and our programming book has already gone to print.


In thinking about all the folks we had to contact to let them know it wasn't happening this year, I had to remember you, the fans. It's not that we've quit; we're just not going to be there this year. We'll be back next year and we're still planning on Anime Fest later this year.

What this also means is we will not be wearing the QuinceaƱera dresses next year. Next year will the the 14th show at A-Kon, not the 15th. You'll have to wait another year to see us all in our pretty pretty princess outfits.

Yeah, OK. I know it's not Conan. It's Danny Kaye. But still....

What does popcorn and the Air Force Reserve have in common? Nothing really, but this recruitment film produced by Hanna-Barbera's kinda corny!

Happy 35th Nickelodeon (if needed)

Because I have no faith in it all, I'll leave you with this playlist of what I consider the best of said network (though mainly pre-1990, so all you Y/Z-Gen snots can just suck it).
