Tomorrow marks the start of the world’s largest multi-genre comic convention, and FUNimation’s biggest convention of the year:Comic Con International San Diego!
You’ll be able to catch all the latest news and updates at ourIndustry Panel on Thursday at 5:30pm in Room 24ABC. We’ll also be giving away a ton of free stuff to our fans that come by to see us at our booth in the Exhibit Hall.
Our booth (#4135) will feature our live-action division, Giant Ape Media, and we’ll have giveaways for the Lost Girl TV phenomenon like The Wanderer Tarot card, posters and buttons! But get there soon, because we’ll have limited quantities of each item. Follow the @GiantApeMedia Twitter for details on how you can win these promotion items!
In addition you’ll also have the opportunity to meet Lost Girl cast members Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo and Zoie Palmer (That’s Dyson, Kenzi and Lauren for those who don’t know). You can also look forward to the Lost Girl: Season Three and Beyond Panel at 7:15pm in Room 6BCF. Read more about what Lost Girl will be bringing to SDCC this year here.
And that’s not all! Our amazing FUNimation Show hosts Jamie Marchi (the voice of Panty in Panty and Stocking, Witchblade inWitchblade, and Liz Thompson in Soul Eater) and Scott Porter (who’s just plain awesome) will be at our booth, and filming an episode of The FUNimation Show throughout the weekend!
