NYAF 2008 panels..

September 10, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Oh there is actual panels listed now regarding about NY Anime Festival, if anyone is going. Here‘s also a handy grid.

What I am listing below are panels that I am interested in going. Unfortunately I’ll only make it to NYAF on full days for Friday and Sunday and Saturdays after 5pm. So these are panels I am interested in. On a side note… I really would love to go to the Anime Blogging panel on Saturday, but have a class that I am taking from 10am to 4pm, hence my lateness in attending NYAF. So if there are any anime bloggers, who are attending this, panel at NYAF…any information if any?

Kingdom Hearts: The Fan’s Point of View Disorganization XIII’s crack team of journalists, speculators, and obsessive fanboys have done all the research so you don’t have to.

Come to discuss this video game series in depth, from the games, to the fandom, to the manga, to the real relationship between Roxas and Axel. While Square-Enix may be bound by non-disclosure agreements, we here at Disorganization XIII have no such limitations. Anime Fandom Panel Room 1A14
