To help bring those of you who couldn’t make it to Anime Expo 2011 closer to the events than ever before (lucky you!), we here at Inside AX- Anime Expo have decided that we will be live blogging a select number of panels at this year’s convention with Coveritlive. Using the magic of this newfrangled technology called the interwebs, you’ll be able to follow industry panels such as FUNimation and NIS America from the comfort of your pajamas and home without ever having to leave your couch! Talk about spoiled, why back in my day we actually HAD to go to an anime convention to catch up on all the latest news….
Then you’ll want to hear about this. We will be giving away a full retail copy of FUNimation’s Ga-Rei Zero DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Pack to the first lucky winner who replies back (in our comments section) with our secret codeword: “Anime Expo 2011- Year of the Fan” after we mention it in one of our live broadcast streams. Which one will we mention it in? You’ll just have to wait to find out!
