It's just a shame we can't have stuff like this in the UK... Oh I forgot, it's because Anime is a niche genre here and as such, the DVD's are obscenely expensive at 19.99 GBP per volume and unlike Australia which seems to get a lot of special editions of anime like FMA, we hardly get any special editions at all over here which is why all my official anime is imported from the States as I feel I could never support official releases as long as they're too expensive over here...

Ahahaha....mall tour. I can hardly wait for this to reach the west coast so I can show up with my faux shuriken and kunai after work.

If this tour comes remotely close to the OKC metor area I'll so be there, if just for the goodies and have my picture taken against the green screen/bg of my choice.

Man, all the good things never really happen around where I live. Darn. It seems like a pretty fun thing to do, too, even though I've seen more episodes of Naruto than what's been shown on Cartoon Network thus far.

Lakeline Mall? Goodness, that's practically a 15-minute drive from my house!

The event sounds a bit like it's geared towards people much younger than me, (Then again, what aspect of Naruto isn't?) so I'll probably pass. Still pretty cool to know that something like this is happening around here. Very Happy

I know exactly how you feel! None of these sorts of things ever happen around where I live either, and we only just barely had an anime convention started, let alone events like this. I'd love to go, but I have my doubts that my mom would ever take me unless it was nearby. Well, for those who do go, have lots of fun!

Well it's not like I plan on going to this, but nothing in the New York/ New Jersey area? NEW YORK!! Well, I'm sure they'll add other dates like what happened with the FMA movie.. though, that wasn't run Shonen Jump... Rolling Eyes

Cumberland Mall's a good choice. It's literally across the street from the Cobb Galleria Center where AWA is held every year.

*laughs* I might just have to go to this, the MoA is just on the other side of town. Assuming this isn't falling on the weekend I'm out of town, that is...
