Leftovers from Anime Expo 2010 – A Megumi Nakajima and May’n Panel

Last summer, you might have recalled that I was on assignment for Original Sound Version at Anime Expo and that my job was mostly to babble about how much I enjoyed the (mostly) Macross Frontier Concert as well as the performance that MELL put forth. Lost in that shuffle was a panel that I attended which had both May’n and Megumi Nakajima present to answer a few questions about their work, with a focus on their work for Macross Frontier, but also touched upon the latter’s experience as a seiyuu.

What you’ll get here is a brief rundown of the questions that were asked at the panel and the answers they gave. The questions don’t exactly follow the order in which they’re asked (else it’d jump around a whole lot), so without further ado, check out what they had to say after the jump! [Read more…]

The Abridged Anime Expo May’n/Megumi Nakajima Concert Report

For those of you with a lot of time to spare, the full-length version of the concert report can be found at OSV. This report is for those who want a quick run-down of my thoughts of the event.

But before we get to that, I’m sure you guys will want a set list. Unlike the MELL Concert, I actually knew most of the songs; the only one that I didn’t know was May’n’s performance of “Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare” since I never watched Shangri-La. If there are any mistakes, I’ll blame that on my horrendous notetaking skills.  Anyhow, the set list based on my notes is as follows: [Read more…]

Obligatory Anime Expo 2010 Schedule Post

With the July 4th weekend just hovering around the corner means yet another trip to Anime Expo with all the madness of making the schedule just tight enough so that I can maximize whatever utility there is to be had by interacting with fans, industry, and of course, meeting people who have been nothing more than internet screenames with all the personality and such encapsulated in those virtual identities. Unlike last year, the concerts this time around are actually worth going to. Also unlike last year, there will be a bit of work involved since I’m on assignment for Original Sound Version. Which effectively means that any enthusing over the concerts will be found there once the dust settles. Of course, if anyone else wants to write up a concert report for Anime Instrumentality as a guest post, do let me know!

Anyway, the plan is to hit up Friday and Saturday. Specifics? Well, here’s the plan given the schedule I have on hand: [Read more…]
