Holy crap! I live 10 blocks away from MCAD and I've yet to be informed of this until today?!

EDIT: AND Crispin Freeman will be there? There will be a restraining order taken out against me on Sept. 27th.

I... I am flabbergasted. I live in the Twin Cities, I'm the most obsessive Haibane Renmei fan in history, and... I'll be out of the country when ABe's here!

Crying or Very sad

Please hold me.

I didn't think he ever left his country. Indeed if it wasn't for his doing a very recent manga for the Ipod thingy, I was thinking maybe he died too. I hope he mentions he's working on a new movie, or series.

Of course Frenchy waits until now to bring in ABe, instead of one of the 4 consecutive years I attended SGMS for class credit. ;p

sigh...

He's actually visited a lot cons over the years.

Well, common sense would tell you that it would have been reported if he died.

Wraith on AoD said that ABe hinted at a con last year (or was it 2006?) that a story of his may/should be adapted soon.

SGaMS is an awesome conference. I attended last year, and I'm sad that I can't go back. And on top of being an awesome voice actor, Crispin Freeman is a great speaker too.

I like ABe's work on Lain, Haibane Renmei, NieA_7 and Texhnolyze. Unfortunately, I haven't checked out his artwork on Robot. Too bad I don't live in the US, it will be an experience to hear about his work and about Japanese popular culture.

I really hope to see him getting into an anime project again, since his character artwork on Texhnolyze 5 years ago.

Words cannot describe how exited I am for this.

I loved both Hiabane Renmei and Serial Experiments Lain, and I live in Fargo, so it might be possible that I could go to this.

Hopefully everything works out...

Makes me wish I had the time and means to check it out. ABe is pretty much my favorite artist in the anime/manga world, and I love Haibane Renmei and Lain; two amazing works.

This year's going to be awesome.

Although hopefully next year it will be noted that anyone can take it for credit and have it transfer - not just MCAD students. <_< Ah, c'est la vie; too late to change it now, I guess...
