Anime Boston 2015’s Schedule Released

Anime Boston Banner

You can see it here. A new window will open.

All I can say is: AWESOME!

I’m actually planning to take it easy this year. With all the stuff I have planned I figure I might as well ^_^

Here’s what I’m looking at for Friday. You can view it as a rough draft of my itenerary if you’d like:

  • Opening Ceremony (10:30AM-12:00PM)
  • Dealers’ Room (12:00PM-1:00PM)
  • Artists’ Alley or Game Room (1:00-2:00)
  • Old School RPGS: A Spoony Bard’s Tale (1:30-2:30)
  • How to Host a Good Anime Panel (3:00-4:30)
  • Viz Media Panel (4:30-5:30)
  • Tales of Tales! (6:00-7:00)
  • Swap Meet (8:00-10:00)

…I put the start and end times for all of the events I’m looking at but I plan to leave the con at around 9:00PM for a commitment I have elswhere. I have arranged to have all the swap deals I set up taken care of in the morning. This leaves me free to do the bulk of my shopping during the block indicated above as usual. The AA/GR block is more of a break time I set aside to eat lunch and charge anything running low on juice, among other stuff.

Now for Saturday, I plan to arrive at the con at around 7:00PM. As for why, I usually do the bulk of my blogging in the morning plus I try to get as much as possible since this is my 4th year in a row doing a Panel Saturday night. This year it’s 2 hours long so…yeah. I don’t want to look/feel tired when I get to the Hynes. For Saturday my plans are the Swap Meet for the first hour. Then the main event begins at 9:15PM: My Panel. By the time it ends at 11:15PM, I think only adrenaline will be keeping me on my feet (LOL).

Now for Sunday. My Clannad panel goes from 10:30AM to 11:30AM of course. After that, I’ll head to the Dealers’ Room for my annual Manga Buyout Blitz. Like last year I’m looking to buy Manga from a new series I haven’t read yet. When I’ve had my fill, then it’s off to one more panel and then closing ceremonies.

…Man, this year is going to be a great one!

Sword Art Online II’s English Premieres

Last night, a trailer aired on Toonami revealing the English premiere for the smash hit SAO2 will be this coming Saturday at 1:00AM (Sunday Morning technically). Anime Boston announced a few months back the English premeire of SAO2 will happen at the Con.


Nah, not really.

The one at Anime Boston is an indutry thing so…yeah. It actually fits as they’ll be able to promote the Anime at the con the weekend after its premiere for those who may have missed it. An added benefit to going to Anime Boston is with most premieres, you’ll get the first 2-4 episodes in one shot AND you can talk to some voice actors.

Of course, SAO2 aired in Japan last year. I watched it in its entirety on Crunchyroll. Check out my review if you haven’t seen it yet.
