Anime Expo 2011

COMIC WILL UPDATE NEXT WEEK BECAUSE I’M TIRED.

OH MY GOD GUYS WE BROUGHT 500 KEYCHAIN CASES AND THEY ALL SOLD I’M SORRY IF YOU WERE HOPING TO BUY ONLINE YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE GET MORE OF THOSE;;;;

I WILL MAKE A PAGE FOR MERCHANDISE WHEN EVERYTHING IS READY FOR ONLINE PURCHASE. NOT VERY RELEVANT TO THIS, BUT I JUST MADE A FAQ PAGE YOU CAN CHECK OUT RIGHT NOW.

Anyway, when we looked around at how other people priced their stuff, we realized that our things are really under-priced. That’s probably why they all sold out. We’ve decided to increase our keychains to $4 each for future cons, BUT they will remain $3 when bought online because shipping and handling kinda evens out the price.

Now, about the convention itself: OUR BODIES WERE NOT READY. We had a table last year, but I wasn’t really known back then, so it wasn’t so crazy. Within the first hour, we had made and sold over 50 keychains. For pretty much the rest of the 4 days, I was busy cutting out more keychain designs while my friends assembled them. Sorry I didn’t have time to autograph everyone;; I severely underestimated how much better Black Adventures style would sell than the other style. I even ran out of some and had to go print more. But hey, I’m not complaining! I made more than enough for a new computer <3

It was nice meeting everyone! I think only 4 of you guessed my true identity correctly, haha.  My friends have pictures of Panty!N, Stocking!Black, and Joy cosplayers, which I will hopefully get soon. I also need a picture of the menger gun a fan gave to me <333

Here are some of the random sketches we did at the con for your amusement:

    okayI’llstop

    Well, it’s good that you had a good time and got money. You ought to rest!

  5. Linden says:

    You tease, not telling us your gender~ D8

    We can only hope the 4 people who did guess will comment and tell us?~ PLEASE THIS INFORMATION IS VITAL TO THE FANBASE probably.

    • stardust says:

      He/she was sitting on the right side of the table. Lol.

    • Black says:

      There have been pictures of me floating around the internet for days now :u
      And I was far from inconspicuous at the Arcadia Mall Tour earlier this year, so it’s pretty funny that people still don’t know, haha.
      I wonder how much longer this will last.

      • MadeofPokemon says:

        I KNOW WHAT GENDER YOU ARE BECAUSE OF DEVIANTART
        ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS SAID IT

        • Zebstrika says:

          Hmm… I’ll just instead count to ten.

          Boy. 1
          Girl. 2
          Boy. 3
          Girl. 4
          Boy. 5
          Girl. 6
          Boy. 7
          Girl. 8
          Boy. 9
          Girl. 10

          Are you an girl? 8)

  6. N-Harmonic says:

    MAMI N. THAT IS SO ADORABLE I JUST MADE A REALLY WEIRD NOISE. <3 Sounds like AX was da bomb, I am jelly of everyone who was there. You and your bros looked like fabulous gangstas, PLUS seeing you in the photo made me certain of my existing Black gender hypothesis~

    Can't wait to blow some cash on your keychains and prints!! (It'll be like a late birthday present to myself, since I'm turning 22 on Sunday.) By the way, I'm not surprised that BA!style was more popular. I think it looks more natural and full of personality than your anime style.

    • Black says:

      Oh lol that reminds me that there was a bomb threat on the second day;;;
      Oho, someone who figured out how to find my photo!

      I’m surprised because I thought there’d be more people that didn’t know about my comic, haha;;

  7. Chii Li says:

    My friend got a keychain for me and I love her forever. She told me the creator was nice… no gender hint…. I wonder if she guessed….

  8. I’m under the assumption that you’re a male since whenever I say a woman…well…look at Hima-papa from Hetalia. Everyone thought he was a she and well…yeah…

    But where do you sell them onlinze? On ebay?

  9. Rebecca says:

    I picked up a keychain(Bel in both styles) It was nice finally meeting you in person. I’m glad you made some big sells! You’re so popular. :o

  10. WZD says:

    Hopefully our bodies will be ready next year.

  11. Plasmaking_n says:

    I have the picture of us posing with menger guns if you want it!

  12. Thundhurrus says:

    You beat QBMan!
    You get:
    Morally Questionable Contract.

  13. Manna says:

    Mami!N… MAMI!N!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! <3<3<3

    QBMan… AHHHHHHH
    DYING OF LAUGHTER AND FEAR

    Hurray you made a lot of money :'D

  14. randomguy says:

    If only you guys made plush toys, then my life would be complete. Who wouldn’t want a plush N? BTW I think I’ll be your main buyer of online merchandise lol I want to see Poddo on a T-Shirt

    • N-Harmonic says:

      POD. ON A SHIRT. OH GOD YES.

      Also, I still hope for “I <3 N" and "DERP" shirts.

    • Black says:

      I would LOVE to do that
      but the people that actually make the shirts get most of the money gshfdkjgfdjhgfhfd

      • Zebstrika says:

        Then why don’t you do it the epic way:

        Put an white or black T-shirt or whatever on the paper part of the printer.
        Print the picture on the shirt and it comes out, ta-da!

        (Mind you, my printer blew up when I tried that. I did the Technique after that.)

        (If you don’t know the Technique, type Technique on Youtube.)

  15. Outlulz says:

    I bought two keychains :3

  16. trompaholic says:

    I need hints as to where to find a picture of your booth…the curiosity, it’s killing me! T~T

    • N-Harmonic says:

      *hinthint*
      Look around this site, there *is* a link to where you can find pictures. In fact…it’s in kind of an obvious place.

      • tsuntsundere says:

        Like maybe in the *new* FAQ? But seriously, after all this hype I’m gonna be disappointed to find out so maybe it’s best to not know. Nah. Time to go exploring.

      • tsuntsundere says:

        Wait never mind that was a stupid place to look. But I did find it. Also I feel stupid for getting caught up in the whole ‘wondering about Black’s gender’ thing, because if it wasn’t for everyone else’s wondering, I would have never questioned it, and like the FAQ says it’s obvious, and from the start I pretty much knew.

  17. yukitsukihana says:

    I am sad that I was not able to go to AX D: I would have loved to meet you.
    (Also, I have found pictures and my assumption about your gender was correct!)

    And yay! Keychains!

  18. trompaholic says:

    AHA. Thank you for that. xD

  19. ycart says:

    I FINALLY found those pictures. But man, I spy with my little eye a poster that I would give my left nut to own. I can’t wait for the online store to open so I can buy everything.

  20. Kasumisty says:

    Ahhh, I’m so glad that you managed to sell so much, but at the same time I’m sad, I wanted some too! I will patiently wait till you print more ;; (Ahhh, that poster from one photo <3~). Good job, and yeah, take a rest, you definately deserve it.

  21. Haela says:

    Huzzah! I found some pictures! Ah, I want that $10 poster even if it would result in my family giving me their weird looks. @o@

  22. quincy says:

    Any time frame on being able to pick up your stuff online? You have some really cool products. I know, I know… You are doing your best, but inquiring minds want to know!

  23. Gale says:

    AAAAHHHHH all this stuff is adorable. ALL OF IT.

    now all I need is Black in Homura’s outfit and my life is complete

  24. Laura says:

    Is it sad that your comments/entries make me almost just as happy as when you update?
    I don’t understand the significance of the ;;;;;;;;’s D: WHAT DO THEY MEAN?

  25. Rick says:

    omfg I found black picture!

    http://tinyurl.com/3apk4jx

  26. It’s contract time

    Ugh, I wouldn’t have got one either way. No money and still living in Germany, herpaderp.

  27. Justice says:

    I AM SO HAPPY

  28. If you make Clay a gay bear, you get bonus points.

  29. Kaylee-chan says:

    MY FRIEND SAW YOU AND SAID YOU WERE SOOOO SWEET. ;3;! I WISH I WAS THERE.

  30. Patchy says:

    AH I WOULD’VE BOUGHT THAT MAMI N

  31. Vivian says:

    Congrats on the good turnout at the con!!! : D
    But… but… more updates!!!!!

  32. Denego says:

    I didn’t get to see you guys until the last day… And I was so sad that everything was sold out! If I had checked this site earlier, I *swear* I would have ran to your booth if I could!
    I wish I could have talked to you! I didn’t have enough nerves to actually speak to you ;_;

    I cosplayed Kyoko and N! If you come next year, I’ll give you my menger sponge, promise! (It’s a gold-painted void cube, actually. But it’s cute! )

  33. Jooce says:

    If only I didn’t live in Australia…
    Congratulations on the turnout!

    And Mami N is adorable! I want one now!

  34. Lucarioblaze says:

    Your gender surprised me, actually. O_o But I still love you~ ♥
    I’m gonna buy that sexy poster of Black and N. And I’m gonna buy keychains. Yah.

  35. Moof says:

    Black is a she for those wondering.

  36. Rory says:

    I’m glad you had fun and made money! ^_^

  37. Enners says:

    It’s always been obvious to me. Like, it never occurred to me that you might be the opposite of what you are. (Though, I suppose you could be trans.)

    I confuse people, myself. Often.

    The thing is, I’ve seen gender-specific pronouns being tossed around for you in comments all along. Shihfu, at least, has never made it a secret.

    I like your hair, though! I bet you have a fucking manly-ass face under that bandana, though. Like, Gaycheese face. Holy Hell. (I’m gonna cry.)

    Since you like playing guessing games, maybe you’ll be able to guess my gender one of these days. ;D

  38. Enners says:

    Okay, I made a WordPress. NOW my body is ready.

  39. Akki says:

    MERCH PAGE NEEDS TO BE UP ASAP. I NEED MERCH *3*

  40. Velvet Dreamer says:

    “They’re trying to hug, but their heads are too big.”
    Pfffftttt.

    sob, Why do all the cool people not live in the South? ;3;

  41. Indigo says:

    I feel like loser because I can’t find the pictures ;3; … I don’t care to see the gender(well maybe just a bit) I just wanna see pictuuurs…. *hides in a corner of shame*

  42. Kaze says:

    haha Congrats :D
    to be honest i always thought you were a guy D:
    you have failed my expectations!! *runs away crying* *coughnotthatihadmuchexpectationsinthefirstplacelolcough*

  43. Julie Hamada says:

    Waugh! I was the schoolgirl Madoka that kind of silently stalked the booth Day 2… Sorry I didn’t say more, but I was so not mentally prepared to meet you guys, and THEN YOU GUYS WERE DOING AWESOME MADOKA MAGICA COSPLAY. I think my inner fangirl was too overwhelmed for words.

    I’m glad you made enough for a new computer!!
    I adore the keychains and posters I got, and definitely will look over the merch page when it’s up as well; I’m having regrets about not buying more, haha…

  44. lunaflyer says:

    I just wanted to say that I’ve read this entire comic twice. <3 <3 <3

    Also, congratulations on making money! I really wish I could have come and seen you… But I live very far away. D: I love everything you do and can't wait for the next update! <3

  45. Sol says:

    I’m so bummed I couldn’t meet you. ;; At least I’ll still be able to get my hands on some delicious BA merch.

  46. Omnis says:

    Mami!N :D

    Then the image was ruined by Charlotte!Joy/Missingno. showing up in my head :c

    Well… Joy as the first form and Missingno. as the… you know what I think you get the idea.

  47. Kasumisty says:

    Waiting Camping for more @_@

  48. windwaker123~ says:
