Greetings my cute fucks,
I’ve recently updated my Patreon to reflect what I’m currently up to and I’m very excited to announce that for the first time, I will be travelling to the US to attend Anime Expo 2016 in Los Angeles, California and Comic Con in San Deigo!
I’ll be working with J-List and JAST USA to help represent the company at the booth as well as to touch base with a number of my sponsors and business associates. This of course means better, more exclusive coverage in articles, my social media accounts, and as well as better prizes during giveaways!
For the sake of the trip however, I’ll be needing additional funding as our sponsors can only cover so much. Considering all the time and effort I’ve put into various projects that you all know, without asking for any sort of compensation – I felt that I could reach out to the community to ask for this – as other project owners have done similar and have been successful. I would appreciate and personally thank any and all who would contribute to the effort as this is a big step for me as well as great experience that would help with future endeavours! Of the $4300 I need, I have collected $2600 thus far, leaving us with a deficit of $1400 I was hoping you could help fill.
For a detailed breakdown of what I’ll be needing (will be updated as time goes on):
- Flight costs remaining – $0/1000
- Hotel costs remaining – $1400 /$2500 (Will cover two months worth of stay)
- Travel costs remaining – $0/$300 (Buses, taxi, Uber, gas etc)
- Sustenance costs remaining – $0/$300 (groceries, food etc)
- Contingency fund – $0/$200
In terms of my itinerary, it will be posted once we get closer to the event and full details will be revealed. I will be setting meetings and arranging correspondences with the various businesses, groups and associates I’ve worked with/am going to be working with and thus not everything is set in stone as yet. But here’s a rough schedule for now:
- June 27th: Touch down in America, meet up with co-workers, set up booth for AX, and have dinner with co-workers.
- July 1st – 4th: Anime Expo 2016
- July 5th: Tour of Blizzard Entertainment
- July ??: Tour of Crunchyroll
- July ?? – ??: Tour of J-List headquarters in San Diego
- July 21st – 24th: Comic-Con International: San Diego
I greatly appreciate any and all help I get as this will be a huge step for me as well as my projects as a whole. Thank you once again for all your help and continued support!
