Wow.

Unfortunately or fortunately (not sure which, probably the first), I was at the other con at the time, as all my preparations to be there were made before Eriko was announced as a guest at AN, and thus missed out.

But uh... is it just me, or does it look like no one's in Nakamura's line? I'd imagine it would be more crowded in the pic if there were more people...

I heard there were a ton of Japanese Ps that came to AN exclusively for her.

Did you buy those at the convention? By the time I got there on Saturday the only iM@S products I could only find were posters (which sold out just before I was going to buy one) and some very very small figurines.


But uh... is it just me, or does it look like no one's in Nakamura's line? I'd imagine it would be more crowded in the pic if there were more people...

I wish there were so few people in line(not really because I'm glad she was so popular because it could mean more iM@S in North America). Here's my account of the event.

I was only able to go on Saturday. I went to watch the screening of the anime and Eriko spoke and answered a few questions after episode 23 finished. She even did Hamuzou's voice.
I then went to a video game voice actor question panel, and she answered a few more questions there. Her next event was the autographing.

Her autograph time was scheduled for 4:00PM. I arrived at 4:01PM and tried to enter the line. The person managing the lines let me know that Eriko's was already closed because there were too many people. Unfortunately, I had to turn away, autograph free. The other two lines weren't even half as long.

Between the posters and the autographing session I learned a thing or two about being on time for things at anime conventions or anywhere, for that matter.

I heard there were a ton of Japanese Ps that came to AN exclusively for her.

That is true. I met someone from California and talked to him for a bit. One of the things we talked about is how at least one group of people from Japan came all the way just to see her, which we thought was kind of funny considering how they can go to all of the events in Japan, including concerts. That's a lesson in dedication for everyone. From what I could tell, the Japanese people spoke English quite well.

How was Eriko's English? ;D

At the video game panel she spoke some lines in English with pretty good pronunciation then said in Japanese something like "That's all the English I know so I'm going to start speaking Japanese now."
I think she just memorized some lines in English but can't really speak it.

Here's a transcript of her Q&A from Friday night (I wasn't there).

For her favourite idolM@STER song, she sang it both on Friday and Saturday. It was pretty fun with everyone singing along with her, at least on Saturday. Here it is (I'm not entirely sure how serious this is. Maybe it's just her default answer.):

Ugh, that's pretty harsh, but yeah... lines do fill up in advance at times. Sometimes at cons, they'll be more signings that aren't listed, though - I remember missing a chance to get a CD signed because I didn't know someone randomly decided to get a booth in the dealer's room and start both selling the CD and signing them. Luckily they were there the next day. I almost missed my chance.

Hahaha that person might have been either me or my friend. xD
