  1. I've never been to an American style anime convention, but I'd like to watch a few panels and see what the deal is. Are there never any panels recorded in full and put on the web?

  2. @Sceleris: A couple of us anime podcasters will post panel audio every once in a while, but really the multimedia focus of a panel makes it better suited to video. Your best bet is to look stuff up on YouTube – I know that a lot of voice actor panels get posted on there.

  3. @Evan Minto: Yes, my mistake, I was thinking specifically about video recordings of (at least somewhat) educational fan panels. But good tip, I actually found a few that seem all right.

  4. I dunno. Am I a dick for being annoyed by the media over-exposure of Baby Jessica, while wanting to know if the Crayon Shin Chan creator's alright?
