Yes, Tite is going to be at San D Con.
Because VIZ is bringing him in, as opposed to being a guest of the con itself, that may be why he's not listed there yet?
They announced it a couple weeks ago, and then Tite himself mentioned it as part of the pre-show stuff for Memories of Nobody.

However, 4-day passes are sold out now. Day passes are still available, but I don't know if anyone's announced what day Tite will be at the Con. And the hotel thing has long been nutso for that con.
And as mentioned, I can imagine the mess of humanity! It was challenging getting to the Nobuhiro Watsuki signing and panel, I can just imagine the percentage of that 120,000+ crowd that might be interested in Bleach....
That's why I wish everyone we know that is going success, and make sure to use every trick in the shinigami book for it!

Renji variant?
With the kinds of topics in here recently, I'm not sure if we should be afraid of that?
:)


i'd only be going to CC for whatever day he is going to be there, IF i'm somehow able to manage to get down there (I want him to sign my artbook T_T ).*le sigh*
oh and regarding the Renji variant - no need to fear! its nothing weird. I don't want to give it away yet, but let's just say its a "filler spoiler" as me and my friends who do know about it jokingly like to call it XD

ooh sounds fun!

And...just a heads up on VIZ typical policy for signings for guests they bring--just to save people from hauling stuff and/or prepare to take a back up thing for signing. It has to be a book VIZ released by that person, they won't normally let a Japanese published edition be signed. Their people check for it before you get to the person.
But you could maybe contact them by email to double check if they'll keep that policy for Tite.

And just did want to add one note, I really enjoyed how nice and fun everyone was at the Bleach gathering at ComicCon last year. That was my first time to meet anyone from the forums, and about the time I joined c.com, too.
I hope there's a good turn out there this year!

Heh, well  theres no way in hell I'm going.
Kubo is pissing me off anyway.

Kubo: Yea, so I've already got 30 or so awesome characters whom I've yet to give any character development, I'n going to create MORE obnoxious filler characters anyway!

I really want to slap him. He took something with SO much potential; the manga was really well-written, there was actually a lot of depth and symbolism, and turned into another pointless "RAWR ME THE BEST!!+ tits and blood anime.

Don't even get me started on what he did to poor Renji! He's a bloody Liutenant for god's sake! Oh right, thad oesn't mean anything because Ichigo is there. All Shinigami are obsolete.  ::)

Eheh..damn I like to rant.

Aaanyway, as far as 'Japenese merchandise' it wouldn't matter because I'd just have him sign one of Zabimaru's segments.

Or.. I'd run into him as Byakuya and shake  yelling  " TELL ME YOU KNOW WHO IAAAM!"

To Everyone:
In your opinion (**spoiler**) does Lisa Yadomaru (currently a Vizard member) wear a skirt or very short hakama as a shinigami? I'm still not sure. ;.;

A tiny skirt, IMO.  It fits with her later look, plus a short hakama would (I think) flare differently than what she's wearing.  It's probably a little like what Nemu wears in modern day, more of a traditional kimono cut high than a separate skirt over her shihakushou.  But I haven't looked at the pictures recently, so I'm not certain.

Seconding what Yukari said about the Folkwear hakama pattern.  Hakamas are mostly math, but this has, IMO, the most important part: how to pleat the dratted thing.  :D

Thank you so much! A skirt would be an enternity easier! But I still may have to make a hakama for something else. ;.; All those pleats! @.@ I've only had to do two before and they were hard!

@ ToshiX

I wish you and anyone else going the utmost of luck! And I hope you actually get to meet him, and get something signed if you so desire! >.<

Then info on how one travels from airport to con hotels, etc. would be helpful. Most cons seem to be close enough to the airports for one or more shuttle services to be usable.

Figured I would reply to this real quick since I live in Portland and staff for Kumoricon.

The hotel is literally right on the MAX line (light rail) which, like Charis said, has a line that goes straight from the airport right by the hotel. It costs $2.05 for a ticket.It's like half a block to the actual lobby entrance from the MAX stop. Maybe a 20 minute ride? Been a while since I've ridden the MAX.

Here's a map showing the approximate route of the MAX from airport to the hotel. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v359/Trumby/PDX.jpg

The hotel is between NE 9th and 11th Ave and NE Multnomah and NE Holladay, right across from the park and Lloyd Center mall. Couldn't tell you if they have a shuttle or not, though that can be easily figured out by giving them a call.

Random Kumoricon stuff:

 It's been decided for me that yes, I am going as Renji again.

Paul and I just got back from watching Avenue Q and I had a few drinks. He decided I would make the best drunken Renji ever that I now need to 'cosplay' this. Sure, whatever. 

I'm usually 'the responsible one' but they already put me in charge of the 'porn panel' if I'm going to be immoral I may as well go for broke, I guess. >>

Oh, and Paul is going to make me Zabimaru PjJs for the late-night party.

-le sigh- Oh well...>.>...Vacation is right around the corner...

Oh! And I have the black-top part of my Lisa-Shinigami outfit complete! >.< I shall attempt...something else next? I'm not sure what yet. XD`I think once I get back my DVD's I'm going to stare at the Mirror Card for all that I am worth and figure out exactly how to begin with her kimono's. Oh! But I have her Mirror all done with its' pretty tassles. (-^_^-) (v)

I finished working on the cosplay pics.  616 total.  I upload the pics on my webpage next week.  For some, I have pics of your other cosplays or your Bleach cosplay before and after the gathering.  Off the top of my head, I have Yukari's gag shot of another cosplayer with a hammer attempting to hammer your Renji banki =)  I have Yuu's pic I took Friday morning.  And I have Kimu's Kenshin cosplay.

Outside anime, it's working, going back to the gym, and taking life one day at a time.
