Yoshitaka Amano and Yasuhiro Nightow are going to be there as well.

Amano is signing at Radical Publishing Link

And both Amano and Nightow will sign at Dark Horse Link

And Takashi Okazaki (the chara designer for Afro Samurai) will be there too Link

Man, I know I probably will run straight to Viz once the doors open. I wonder what Bleach item you have to buy though? As for Hiro Mashima, I wonder just how popular Fairy Tail and Rave Master are in America, maybe the rush there won't be so bad. Hopefully I can get both, but if I had to choose one, I probably will go with Kubo. I just happen to like his art style a lot more.

Man, I can not wait.

If you want in on this, be one of the first 50 people to show up to the Viz booth from Wednesday through Saturday, and buy a Bleach item from their store. You'll get a ticket to attend one of the signings and a special signing board.

This sounds like a portion from an RPG walkthrough, telling you how to obtain some really rare special equipment or something. To a Bleach fan, this is probably pretty accurate.

It sounds like the convention will be really exciting; I wish I could be there.

I plan to be standing in front of the Viz booth Wednesday when sales start instead of in front of the Score booth like I'm supposed to be...

BTW, Score Entertainment will have Michelle Ruff and Stephanie Sheh.

And there are a few other voice actors at SDCC if you comb the schedule like Yuri Lowenthal, Jeff Nimoy, and Quinton Flynn.

I can't wait to watch it on TV. I was some news regarding not only anime & manga, but my favorite comics too.

Honestly, I don't know how you were supposed to be the first fifty in the line at the Viz booth. As soon as I got in the door on Wed. evening I went over to Viz and got in line. There were 15 people in front of me. We all took our time and bought our stuff. When it was time to check out the cashier said the 50 tix for that day had come and gone already. (various Homer Simpson replies come to mind)

The day when Tite Kubo was around at the Viz booth was crazy. People were everywhere around the area. Never did get to see him there.

At least he was kind enough to show up and attend all the things he did there.
