SOS-Dan at Anime Expo

Not much to report yet, except what attendees have been kind enough to mention in comments on my last couple of posts. The only things I've found are a quote on 2channel (from an English-language source I can't find) and one blog post from a Japanese attendee.

Aaya, Gotuuza-sama and Minorin (Hirano Aaya, Gotou Yuuko, and Chihara Minori) were asked where they saw themselves in ten years: "Hirano hopes to still be doing the work she loves, TV/seiyuu work and singing. Chihara feels the same, and adds that she might like to be a good wife by then. Goto says in English: 'I wanna be married.' (She also wants to keep working, but notes that she's a bit older than these two - hence the desire to be married.)"

Aaya was asked if she has a boyfriend, and she apparently said she didn't normally talk about her personal life. But then she added "no," with a smile.

Neither Minorin nor Aaya had much English, but Gotuuza-sama seemed pretty fluent. She went to college to become a translator before dropping out to go into the entertainment industry.

By the way, I did find a shot of a page from the Sabra magazine feature:



EDIT: Found a couple more mentions:
The Great Elk was amazed that the three women's voices actually did sound like that, and thought they were very, very cute. Worry vs. Donuts had a quote of the day: "Will you be my friend?" an attendee asked Aaya, after he was repeatedly told to sit down. Now I know what the comment about the questions being so bad meant, lol.

On her blog this morning, Aaya has a picture of a big bowl of clam chowder, commenting how enormous the serving is, that one bowl of soup would fill her. Welcome to America, Hirano-san.

The Japanese blog, now that I read it in detail, says that there is (was) an SOS-Dan autograph session at ten this morning, and there will be an SOS-Dan live performance tonight. The autograph session did not appear on the schedule of events posted on the web. The "SOS Brigade Invasion Tour" will be at 4:30.

The SOS Brigade Invasion Tour just ended a few hours ago. The line was at least 3000 people...(from the entrance all the way to the parking lot and then looped around again). Like almost all the AX main events, it was not starting as planned and people had to wait an hour and a half more before going in. But it was definitely worth it! Aya-chan was hot~! She sang all her signature Suzumiya Haruhi songs including God Knows... and Lost my Music. The three stars even had their own upgraded version of the Hare Hare Yukai dance! Also you finally get to see Hirano Aya and Patricia Lee face to face. I will never forget the event! Too bad the autograph signing got canceled and moved to tomorrow...there were hundreds of people waiting...including me! >_<

That concert kicked major ass, even if the line was murder.

@Kenny: Where were u seated? I'm Section C, Row 10, seat #3.

Anyway the song lineup:

1. Koi no Mikuru Densetsu
2. Bouken Desho Desho?
3. Yuki, Muon, Madobe Nite
4. SELECT? (bust out your glowsticks and sway back and forth ^_^)
5. God knows...
6. Lost my music
7. Hare Hare Yukai

And the encore was of course Hare Hare Yukai (TV Size). Getting people to keep shouting for moar was tiring.

"SPARTANS! WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION?!"

Anyway I'm gonna be remembering this experience for one hell of a long time. Great concert overall, even if the engineer dude operating the videos screwed up a few choice times. lol.

Update on autographs: Today was murder, and I am quite certain that an angry mob was just waiting to happen. Only 50 to 100 people were supposedly let in to actually get their signatures, and the item to be signed was controlled (big poster).

But I myself, and quite pleased at having been one of the lucky few to get the autographs (and just be graced by their presence in general, I was frickin' petrified lol).

it was 50, I know because I was the 57th guy in line ;_;

Hello, I was the guy who asked if she has a boyfriend, and here's her response (I remember it completely because I asked it, duh):

"Koiu toki ni ha...sou, 'Kinsoku Jikou desu!' Hontou ni ha inaindesu."

Which translates to
"At times like this, I should say, classified information ^^. Seriously though, I don't

She borrowed that "classified information" line from Mikuru in the show.

I also somehow managed to get the autograph because I became good friends with Wada-san and Fujiki-san, two of the eight guys who came all the way from Japan. They camped out for the night and I asked them to save me a seat when I arrived at 5:30am.

I was seated in Section C, Row 8, seat 7. If you were in section C, you saw me - i was that asshole standing up on his chair doing the hare hare yukai dance towards the end.
