On Saturday, I went with my friend Freya to go to a panel on intellectual capital in regards to writing. The panel (done by Joshua Done) was sadly very short (only 45 minutes) and could have gone much longer, as there was a lot more that could have been talked about, especially if he had been able to answer more questions. A good part of Saturday was spent in the dealers hall - I caved and bought my first two arpacasso and a really adorable Sailor Jupiter charm. The afternoon was dedicated to Mushi-Shi: one panel on the 'roots' of Mushishi (a look at Japanese folklore culture, eastern cosmology, and natural history in regards to the manga and anime) and another panel with Hiroshi Nagahama, the director and series compositor of Mushishi, where we got to see the third episode of the new season. After dinner, some drinks, and kareoke, we ended the night with Where Fanfic Goes to Die: The New Hotness.
