Well folks, it’s nearly upon us – Glasgow’s first full weekend of MCM Comic Con! And on our home turf no less – we’re super excited about this year and we’ve got plenty going on so pull up a seat and have a wee read. There’s a lot to take on board!
As you know, we are honoured to have with us the director of Space Dandy Shingo Natsume for the whole weekend! That’s right, not only is Natsume-san in town but he’s brought a friend along as well – Meow! Nope, I’ve not had a mild stoke there – Meow from Space Dandy will be making a few appearances over the weekend and we are super psyched to have him here too!
So what’s going on?
First up, there’s a very special panel session on Saturday 6th at 3:30pm discussing all things Space Dandy. It’s a great way to get some insight into the show, the creators and everything that goes into making Space Dandy the glorious mess of colour and humour that it is! It’ll be an hour-long panel with plenty of time for audience Q&A so put on your thinking caps and come armed with questions.
There will also be 2 Space Dandy signing sessions taking place over the course of the weekend. The signings will no longer take place at the Anime Limited stand and will instead be taking place at the MCM Signing Area. So please make sure you head to the signing area if you want a chance to have Natsume-san sign stuff for you!
When are the signing sessions and how will it work?
As mentioned above, there will be 2 signing sessions with the director of Space Dandy:
Saturday session: 12:00 – 13:30 at the MCM Signing Area
Sunday session: 12:00 – 13:00 at the MCM Signing Area
There will be Space Dandy signing cards as well as postcards that you can pick up free and have signed! These are, of course, available while stock lasts. If you have your own (legit) Space Dandy merch you want to have signed, then by all means bring it along! As ever, items to be signed are limited to 1 item per person. Please make sure you observe this rule, it helps us ensure everyone who wants an autograph gets one.
Meow will also be making an appearance at the signings! As you all may remember, Meow is very social media friendly and LOVES taking selfies. If you have time, spare a thought for poor Meow and consider taking a selfie with him And if you feel like sharing your selfie with us here at Anime Limited, please post it to our Facebook page or mention us on Twitter or hashtag it #MCMMeowSelfie.
What else are we up to?
We will, of course, be manning a booth (#531) in the hall full of all manner of Anime Limited goodies for sale! In addition to the usual titles currently available for sale, we’ve also got:
Space Dandy Limited Edition Vinyl: Oh yes, NOT to be missed! We’ve only got 20 copies available for MCM Glasgow and are sold on a first come, first served basis – so if you want to get your hands on this limited edition and gorgeous vinyl, hit up our booth nice and early. The vinyl is priced at £18. Get ’em while they’re hot!

Finally we join the 21st century and can process card payments so nae bother if you have nae cash, we’ve found another way for you to delightfully part with your money But that’s because we’re just super nice.
