We’re super excited (and super busy) ahead of MCM London Comic Con this weekend but we still have time to give you a quicker version of the Newswire ahead of the event. Read on below for the latest update and last minute tidbits ahead of the event below.
MCM LONDON COMIC CON UPDATE
~ First of all if you’re coming to MCM London Comic Con this weekend, last week we published the massive amount of details about what we have planned for the event. For details on panel times, booth activity, the EU Premiere of Gundam The Origin III and more, CLICK HERE.
~ In an update from the post linked above, the signing time for the Anime Guests of Honour, Mobile Suit Gundam’s Mika Akitaka and Osamu Taniguchi, will be from 14:00-15:30 at the MCM Signing Area. Please note that this is a free signing limited to 1 item per person. There will be some really cool looking signing cards from you to choose from to get signed. If you bring an item with you to get signed please note the guests are there promoting Gundam specifically. if an item you bring is not Gundam related there’s a strong chance they may not sign it.
~ Speaking of Gundam, we can confirm the Gundam Origin III: Dawn of Rebellion EU Premiere screening will be in Japanese with English subtitles. This takes place at 11am in the Platinum Suite on Saturday (28th) with the panel featuring the Anime Guests of Honour, Mika Akitaka and Osamu Taniguchi taking place immediately after
~ We will posting times of when announcements will be made and screenings at our booth we will be taking place later this week.
~ Speaking of screenings at our booth across the weekend, we can confirm on each day we’ll be screening the following:
- My Hero Academia (Broadcast dubbed version courtesy of FunimationNow)
- Rage of Bahamut: Genesis
- Assassination Classroom
- Terror In Resonance
Unless otherwise noted above, all screenings will be with English language audio and English subtitles. (Given it might be a bit noisy there, we want to make sure you can understand what’s being said.)
~ We can also confirm we will have the latest Love Live! Sunshine CD from Japan available to purchase at our booth (while stock lasts.)
~ In conjunction with our friends at FunimationNow.uk over the weekend we are giving one lucky attendee the chance to win a deluxe replica of The Dominator gun from Psycho-Pass, The Dominator by Cerevo. See HERE FOR MORE DETAILS and the video below.
It’s very simple to enter. You just need to fill in some details on a tablet being held a brand ambassador who will be by the booth throughout the weekend. Then following the conclusion of the event, one lucky person will be randomly selected from everyone who filled in their details to win this!
