Well obviously ANN staff were there, so what do you (they?) think? Is it fair or was it a one in a million experience?

Her last post in her blog after the one complaining about AX is actaully very positive, praising AX and thanking those who came to her concert. She also stated that she would attend the closing ceremony, which she said earlier that she was not going to attend. When people put on a good impression and help you out it will change your day and experience quite a bit, it seems.

But it might be her outward politeness that is being posted... I have a feeling she still doesn't like what happened at all :/

From what I hear from people who attended AX on day 1 and 2, this year's convention was a pretty big disaster. Super long registration line, everything was delayed so nothing was on time, not being allowed into the film room if you're a few minutes late, crappy layout of the facility, bad planning and execution of AX staff. What the heck happened?? :(

Okay people who went. What happened? What from what you could see or understand could have gotten under her skin?

Even with the new positive post, what was she talking about with the first one to merit the title "Halko Momoi Slams Anime Expo"?

Is it me, or did she change the previous blog entry? Because the one that's dated Sunday at 3:42 PM now starts with ご心配おかけしてごめんね、でも、もう大丈夫! = "Sorry to worry you, but it's all right now!"

In any event, I think saying that she "slammed" the expo may have been pre-mature. It's the whole "don't jump to conclusions" thing...

Where's my slowpoke jpg?

Here's a summary from Canned Dogs:

Quote:
Singer/seiyuu Momoi Halko has expressed on her blog that Anime Expo was horrible and that she felt that the staff there did not have any respect for anime or people that were related to anime industry. Apparently the staff were very disorganized and handled everything in a very shoddy manner.

She ran into a lot of problems starting with having no hotel room when she arrived and even being told that her concert was cancelled. (Though her staff tried their best and managed to stop it from being cancelled)

According to Momoi, other guests at Anime Expo were also treated in a similar manner with their interview panels and concerts being delayed, shortened, or cancelled without any good reason at all. Some of the staff that came from Japan were even crying because of all this.

However, she was really happy when she saw her fans and feels that she was saved when she saw her fans and even started crying out of happiness during her focus panel. She then says that she canceled all her appearances for Sunday so that she can make sure that her concert on Day 4 will be a success.

I did not go to the Halko Momoi event, because I was pretty much pissed off from how things were going with the convention. My friend did go to the SOS Brigade Invasion concert that people were considering to be a disaster, himself included. Seems that the Invasion started three hours late, the ASOS members were acting like a bunch of a-holes with them doing the dance half-ass. He tried to go to the autograph session for Hirano Aya, which ended up getting cancelled on day two. They pushed it back to day 3, and he got to the place at 6 am, the thing was supposed to start around either nine or ten am, which got kicked back some more. People had been waiting in line for the autograph session since 12 am. Then when they started the autographing, they announced that they were only going to allow 100 autographs, in which a riot he told me was ready to break out. To me, the staff there was not nice, the hotel staff was no better, poor planning of events and long lines with hourly waits. Am I going to criticize Anime Expo this year? You bet I am.
