We are a very experienced paneling team and have put on panels about Idols/Visual Kei/Cosplay/Japanese Theater/etc. at cons such as Pacific Media Expo, FanimeCon, Kraken Con, Hanadoki Con, Anime California and Anime Expo just to name a few. We presented our IDOL 101 panel at FanimeCon to a crowd of about 100+ and this was with a time slot against Fanimaid and the official Sailor Moon panel. We also presented at Anime Expo with a similar turnout at a very early Sunday time slot. We have also presented an AKB48 specific panel at cons with similarly high turn outs. We think the Hello! Project panel will be very popular especially at Anime Matsuri which features Hello! Project group, Morning Musume as a guest. We are also set to put on the very panel at Animation On Display in San Francisco weeks before Anime Matsuri. We have held many other panels and always have high attendance/retention rates due to our content, our personalities and also because we also run a media site and are able to partner with some amazing groups from around the world to sponsor our panels. We specifically worked with Up-Front recently to cover Hello! Project group, C-ute's concert in Mexico and were granted one of the only English interviews. More information about our media activities (and our working relationships with many Japanese record labels) can be seen at A-To-JConnections.com . We are also very professional and are always timely, we never cancel and we provide great entertainment to convention attendees. We look forward to working with Anime Matsuri.
