Well, last year's panel on Abridged Series was a huge success, so it's time to make a thread for next year's. At this panel, we discuss what goes into the creation of Abridged Series, their popularity, history, and then audience volunteers come up and lend their voices for the creation of a one-shot episode.
This year, the panel will be run by myself (co-creator, writer, editor, and actor for Ranma 1/2: The Abridged Chronicles), as well as xXNeokaXx, editor of Negima The Abridged Series. We were cut off a little early last time, so we're going to aim for a 2-hour timeslot this time. That way the first hour can be spent discussing Abridged Series, while the second can be used for making the one-shot.
The videos from previous years can be found through these links:
We haven't yet decided what to abridge this year at the panel, so feel free to suggest a series you'd like to see. Please remember that it cannot be a licensed series, at the request of Fanime's staff. (The legality of Abridged Series will also be discussed at the panel. Spoiler: it's totally legal.)
