Anime Banzai '08, Q&A with Vic Mignogna panel, Friday.
My cousin(the one who had me join the Risembool Rangers) got me to go to the panel(I'd say she dragged me, but I wasn't that unwilling. Almost all of my friends at Banzai were there). I sat on the floor up front with a couple of my friends and took a lot of pictures. Most of them kind of suck, because Vic moved around a lot. I posted this one(which I took from the second or third row, right next to one of the mics where people were asking questions) because it's not super blurry.
I wasn't much of a Vic fan before the panel really. I mean, I was excited when I heard that Vic was coming to Banzai, just like everyone else(who wouldn't? Vic is huge in the anime world!). At the panel, I was laughing and cheering with everyone else. There was a lot of screaming going on, too. It was so awesome. I'm surprised we didn't all lose our voices from that.
I actually ran into him in the dealer's room that morning. Well, actually, I was standing in front of this table, talking to my yaoi-fan friend. I think it was about the wallets we were looking at. Anyway, I see Vic and his girlfriend, Michelle, come up behind Chani, looking at the merchandise. I poke her and point, she looks, then she turns back around with the most awesome expression on her face! (It was the "Oh my gosh, I'm gonna die, SQUEE!" face. At least, that's what I'm calling it.) I got to give Vic a hug. ^^ Anyway, then my little brother shows up. He didn't know who Vic was, so I told him "he does Ed's voice in FMA." Jacob then says something along the lines of "he's a few inches two tall." Without missing a beat(or even turning around), Vic says, in perfect Ed fashion, "I heard that!" Needless to say, we all cracked up.
