Saboten-Con, the upcoming Arizona anime convention, recently held a promo video contest on YouTube. The contestants were ranked based how many views their videos. This tounge-in-cheek short by hbi2k, which uses footage from The Vision of Escaflowne, chalked over 3000 views and won the contest.
A couple of us here at PH are planning on going to Saboten-Con. Anybody else thinking about attending?
Here’s a video of the Funimation Virtual Con Panel (aka FuniCON 1.0), which was held via live streaming video and text chat at 4:00 Central on Thursday. I was in the chat representing Project Haruhi, and Adam actually answered a couple of my questions! He did have some trouble pronouncing Project Haruhi’s name, though (time index 5:19 on the first video). It’s okay, Adam, we forgive you.
He also answered my question about Saboten-Con (6:33), a Phoenix-area convention that myself and a few other PH members will be attending at the end of October. Unfortunately, Funimation won’t have a panel there.
