Shinichiro Watanabe and I

I went to the London MCM Expo yesterday (Sat 25 May 2013) and met the coolest guy from the anime industry, Shinichiro Watanabe. Its no secret that my favourite anime EVER is Samurai Champloo, so to see the director of it for a Q&A panel was fucking awesome, but to then actually meet the guy in person for an autograph and a photo is MINDBLOWING. This dude is my favourite anime director. Of all the people that could possibly have turned up for this London con and they go and get this guy. Holy shit.

me and the legend himself
Signed A4 poster of Kids on the Slope
The photo also lists his other works, including Cowboy Bebop (my #5 favourite anime) and Kids on the Slope (my #17 favourite anime).

Yeah. Yesterday was a good day.

BTW, for those that have never seen my actual face until now, I couldn't look more far removed from my Mugan avatar, could I?

P.S. I went cosplaying as Slenderman. lol.

  1. Totally awesome!I'm glad you got to meet him. ^_^

    As to the avatar thing...*lol* Well, I picked mine based on the feelings conveyed when I first saw it many, MANY years ago. But it is always fun seeing what someone really looks like. ^_~

    1. What is your avatar from? I may have asked you once before but i cant remember. I prefer it when internet folk stick to one name and avatar. It makes things so much easier.
