akfjkasfjs Rider! Sakaki! Luka! This is so exciting~

Also question: one source I found credited her as doing the Death Devil songs from K-ON! (Maddy Candy and Hell the World). Is this accurate?

Nope-I'm excited about that as well! Just watched Vandread with my friend the other day, then she was announced. It was kinda awesome!

Can't believe my suggestion back in June 2012 comes true (;A:)
Not sure if I am the only person who is giga excited by this by her role in Ever17 as Tsugumi(Or Rider from Fate Stay Night):3
Nonetheless, splendid job Ken!

Any chance Yuu Asakawa could do a live dubbing panel or something else unique like that? That would be pretty awesome!

This is amazing!!!! :D/>
I actually drew a chibi print of Megurine Luka for the occasion if anyone needs something to sign and will be selling it at my AA table /blatant self promotion =p/
I'm only planning on printing a few copies, but if you request I can make sure to keep one to the side for you :D/>
She will be on a 5x7 glossy print for $3 :)

Never know till you try :)
A friend of mine has gotten several prints she's bought at various cons signed by various VAs. Until they explicitly post that they only will signed official merchandise, no harm in trying. I'm certainly going to :D

I need to find something for her to sign but a lot of her works are older or more obscure...so it's a challenge. Anyways, glad she is coming to ACen, look forward to seeing her.

Hey guys,
Would it be possible to post the times for all of Yuu Asakawa's panels?
I noticed the "Meet Yuu Asakawa" panel wasn't on the Anime Central schedule app, or the text schedule.
