    ALSO, come to my panel.

    Sentai: It's Not Just Power Rangers
    Saturday 9 AM-10 AM, Live Two
    For over 30 years, the Super Sentai franchise of
    tokusatsu shows has been saving Japan from evil alien forces, ancient
    civilizations, demons, and countless other foes. While most of the
    world has known it since 1993 only through its Western adaptation,
    Power Rangers, the show has a rich and deep history beyond that. Come
    check it out!

    I'm putting in some work on this panel. It's going to be fun times. Excuse the crap time, it'll be awesome.

  • Looks like I'll have to go for the whole weekend this year. One day just really isn't enough at Katsu.
  • Oh no, never. Even Thursday night is awesome, though for money reasons I had to cut it. We're headed down on a cheapo early morning commuter train to DC. $7 beats $149 for another night in the hotel. But I digress.
  • That all sounds so awesome. I just wish I could go.
    Sadly, the local con that I am staff for this year is the week ahead of Katsu, and that is going to drain me, mentally and possibly financially.
  • Do it.

    Though then again, the only time I did two cons in two weekends (Anime Mid-Atlantic/Power Morphicon), after the second one I slept about 14 hours in a row....I was that tired.
  • I'll Probably be able to go, even tho money is tight for me. I'm also trying to work my way thru katsucon, being a go-fer or something. But if anyone knows any jobs for the con let me know.
