~AKB48♥ to be guest of honor @ Anime Expo 2010 in L.A.~!!!!!

Just got home with the most amazing~* news PM'd by Anise & Cloves omg it's like deja vu?!!! Good news and bad for me actually.

First the awesome news!!!! is that AKB48 will be the special~* guests of honor @ this year's Anime Expo held in L.A. from July 1st~July 4th! Official expo site mentions a concert, special group panels as well as autograph signing!!!! My initial wonder~ment would be does one actually have the opportunity to acquire autographs from and meet all current 63 members of AKB48??? Σ( ̄◇ ̄*)!!!More realistically would be maybe select members from each current team I wonder or perhaps it'll be the fan favorites only who appear♥? I know with the events in Japan separate tickets are made available with them being one for each member separately so how will the autograph opportunities be held @ the Anime Expo I wonder? In any case whether it a single member or all of them it'll be simply amazing!!!! I've actually been seeing currently on auctions single tickets for an upcoming May Japan event for single member autograph meet & greets going as high as the equivalent of $90~$110 (・д・`*)!!!。。so in L.A. it's just a big question mark as to how these opportunities will be offered and I'm sure the official expo site will have a much more detailed itinerary up as soon as possible~*.

It's just over 64 days until the event and personally the heartbreak for me is that it falls upon the 4th of July weekend so upon receiving Anise & Clove's PM this morning I went quickly to request that entire weekend off and the days leading up as AKB48 will perform their concert on July 1st which is Thursday. And in seeing the requests already approved for the holiday weekend I was told by management that………………………………………

……….the days are already blacked~out meaning I can't take off from work。。。。。。。。。。。(;´□`)!!!!!!!!!! Seriously I would call in sick and I know it's so bad to say or even think but now that management already knows I wanted those days off it so won't look very good if I were to do such a thing ( ┰_┰)。

A~h if anyone is unsure of whether to attend or not given that you can be free~* from work during the holiday weekend here are just a few um…..well slightly very biased photos to consider (*≧▽≦)♪!I'm now going to bury myself and cry (;´□`)!!!!!!!!!!

~♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥~

Admit it, you're so in love aren't you o(*´∀`)o゛?!!!!。。

  2. MB wants~* MB to go too and It's sad that I'm speaking in the third person because I'm beside myself with devastation ・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。Was even trying to beg to have someone give up their vacation days…I was considering selling myself too to be able to get the vacation days it's just that everyone knows I'm not single so that's a no go…okay that was a bad joke (ノロ≦。)!

  7. I'm so sorry that you cannot make it those days! I'm curious to see who is in the line up as well — as it seems only about 15 of the girls made it to the NYAF the other year. I have my hopes on the entire senbatsu group… (I wouldn't mind the UnderGirls too… T_T;;)

    Hopefully the people at anime expo will treat them better than what they did to Morning Musume (if the rumors are true that is) would hate to see America get tagged as a place not stop over for jpop artists.

  9. Oh surely if you have the chance~* and can get there freely (no work (*≧m≦)。。。) you so must go to see AKB48!!! While they've already visited New York this is so amazing that they're going to be in L.A. and for such a prestigious event~*. I hope you're able to attend ^ ^。

  10. I'm still planning to do more begging…shameless begging really (*´艸`)。。。but it really doesn't look good, if only I was psychic and knew much earlier I could have had my off~request in so much earlier and I wouldn't be so upset right now =(.

  11. Everyone puts in there vacation request so early =(, if only it were being held the week before or after….it's just the 4th of July and so so many co~workers wanted to have an extra long weekend :/. My next thought is see if I can convince a friend or relative to attend just in hopes~* of being able to get their autographs♥…I would still miss out on their concert (;_;)….but it would make~up a bit for this as it's so painful missing not just one but now two most favorite groups and they're so close. I'm guessing that just senbatsu members will be there?…which means Korin, Mayuyu, Takamina and Yukirin and now I feel even worse =(. It's just so difficult to ask someone to go through so much and yet there's such a possibility of not getting autographs as I heard many fans didn't get them from Momusu last year……I'm now offering to pay for a part of the airfare, what to do.

  12. It admittedly doesn't look very good right now….ugh~ just a sliver of hope that someone may give up their vacation for me =(. Today has gone from extreme euphoria~* to deep depression ・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

  13. I thought I was dreaming~* at first when I received your PM this morning…Anime Expo is really attracting the very very best from Japan and now two years in a row…..I feel like I should be requesting vacation for this time next year just in case someone amazing appears again XD. At first I was thinking everyone will be there!….dreaming I know as I just can't imagine so many members appearing but I guess you just never know as this is a bit event for AkiP to promote~* further ^ ^!I just learned the term "undergirls"….it's so sad to have everyone divided like such but it makes you want to root for them surely♥!! A~h! that's right you can so much take part in the anime expo \(^o^)/☆ Ugh~ I haven't yet even looked at airfare from Hawaii…just in case I'm paying for a portion of it if I can convince someone to go and just try to get me their autographs♥.

  19. That's really awful that the head of AX was so rude and I just hope he's not running things this year…..both Momusu and AKB48 deserve better. I managed to get a copy of Momusu's AX in L.A. DVD from auctions and just the thought of it possibly not being released because of one very rotten person makes me sad still.

    Yea i agree Momuse deserved better and i hope AKB48 don't have to deal with that kind of rudeness. I never have seen the DVD for the AX concert sounds like you really like it, i would really like to get a hold of a copy one day and see it. Also is it confirmed that Mano Erina will be at AX as well? I am sure their are many fans who would love to see her here in LA ね. (^_^)V

  28. Oh you've already booked everything~*! Are they pre~selling tickets earlier or you'd need to be there on Wednesday to buy them? I would be thinking miss the panel just be in time for the signings….I'm wondering if there's a schedule posted yet as I haven't checked the official AX site recently. You need to register for the concert? I'd surely need a map of where each booth is located for fear of being lost XD!

  29. You need to register to see any of the information… which is kinda dumb, if you ask me. Since I'm waiting to hear if I get a volunteer or staff position for the masquerade or not, I'm in limbo. :\

  30. So funny I was just checking the site's schedule and it was showing 2009….okay so with registering it'll be updated =). Hmm..sounds confusing as assigned seating sounds definite although with their being numbers? I don't understand. Hotels, I imagine there must be something really near to the convention center. It looks like there'll be a fee for registering.

  34. Hotels are filling up fast. In fact, the closest hotels are the Figueroa (which I don't recommend) and the Holiday Inn. The rest are quite a walking distance away, but AX has a shuttle service to get to the CC and back. The AX hotel pricing isn't bad though — if you can get in on those discounts, but you must be registered for the con. :\

  35. I was noticing the hotel situation…like with the Sheraton Los Angeles which seems pretty close? Less than 1/2 mile I think. $139/night. And LAX is 17 miles away!!! imagine the cab cost! I was surprised that the concert tickets were only $15 though and although it's reserved seating I'm guessing that the seats will be randomly appointed then? I don't travel really and I'm seeing round trip flights starting from $589 :O!!! Not even sure that this is possible to attend still but I know the hotel situation is urgent. I wish the site were more specific and it's really odd that they can't confirm your status :/.
