A bit early for me to know whether I can make it or not, but if I can go, I'll be there.

I might, but I'd be arriving late - the animal shelter I volunteer at is having their annual reunion that same day.

I work until 4 PM that day but I'd like to think I can make it if it's at least running until 8 PM. Can someone summarize what it's about? I'll most likely go though, I always like a visit to Mitsuwa!

Well yeah..they do frown on cosplay....but lets see...the best way to figure out who in a crowd at a Japanese festival is in league with Acen?...Well..find yourself a round eye...Odds are good that they're one of us....not racist if it's true

I'll be there but likely 6:00 or after. Hope to run into a few of you. Crap about the "No Cosplay" rule, I was going to dress as Nyan Cat!!!! Well no, not really. Maybe I'll wear my Zelda shirt.
