Puffy AmiYumi @ Irving Plaza
Puffy AmiYumi

"[Saturday], I attended the panel for Far East to East Showcase (FETES), a concert taking place Sunday night at Irving Plaza. Performing at the show are Zazen Boys (not in attendance at the panel), Echostream, Boom Boom Satellites, and Puffy AmiYumi. The panel was moderated by a representative of Superglorious (actually, he introduced himself as Superglorious), the producer of the event.

All of the band members were shy at first, but they warmed up as Superglorious asked them questions. They talked about writing music, touring, American audiences (described as being "more direct than Japanese fans" by Puffy). Then the floor was opened to mostly dumb questions from the crowd. I doubt these musicians flew all the way from Japan to guess what character a guy was cosplaying. I shouldn't be rude; as my friend Kim Kindya, a 20-year veteran of these kinds of conventions, put it, this is the only chance these fans have to see their heroes. I should be more forgiving. But I did think it was stupid when one guy asked if Puffy were single. I suppose that was the directness Puffy mentioned." [shrinecastle]

That's a summary of what went down at the Javits Center on Saturday. The panel was part of the Anime Convention which is part of Comic Con which you can see pictures from HERE and HERE. A set of pictures from last night's related concert at Irving Plaza, continues below...

Wow, you actually used one of my status updates!

I was at the panel at NYAF. Good god, I knew fans were going to have questions for Puffy and nobody else. It was pretty sad, but understandable. I liked the 2 people who asked BBS questions.

I missed Echostream, though I managed to take a picture with Tony & Ryoko. I saw the rest of the bands. Zazen Boys were good. I mostly came for Boom Boom Satellites as they are one of my favorite bands ever and I interviewed them earlier that day.

Puffy AmiYumi is better than most groups out there. If I had a choice to see either Puffy or VAMPS or X Japan, I would choose Puffy.

Thanks for posting a chunk of my blog entry. I hope I wasn't too harsh. ^_^

I didn't see the show, but at least I can look at these amazing pictures.
