udoneko: Any plans for Udon to hit up Comic-Con and, if so, what’s going to be happening for you guys there? I kept in touch with Taki Enomoto from Capcom JP after last year’s event, and he just told me that not only will he not be going, but there won’t be any Capcom artists going, either. He said the reason for this is, and I quote from his email, ‘the booth should be managed by Shu [of] Capcom USA, not Taki of Capcom Japan’. I find this a terrible pity because Ikeno-san and Mori-san were so popular last year – or maybe nobody wanted to do SDCC 06 after hearing about the horror of drawing for four days straight, and Taki’s just being polite about it. :wasted: Perhaps you’ve got something else going, or have heard differently?
In case you haven’t guessed, I’ll be going; I just need to figure out what the rates and registration procedures are for attending professionals. Yeah, I know it’s only January, but those of us with low-paying part-time jobs have to start saving up really early, eh?
Anyone else here making plans to go? Maybe we can meet up.
