I love the new banner on the home page, as well as this theme. Can't wait to see what you guys do with it.

All the more reason to have Vocaloid cosplayers! :D

I'm sure K-san and Greg Ayres will both be pleased by the theme for 2011.

Greg could pull out his Ichigo hat and sunglasses. Mayyyyyyyybe do a NDB number or two.

K-san could make the chess match a battle of the bands, in a way. Vocaloids, FLCL, Gravitation. And I know there are plenty of anime characters that sing or play instruments (Tamaki plays piano, yes?)

This opens up soooooo many cosplay possibilities for next year! Vocaloids, jrock, Links with ocarinas... so exciting! Hopefully that'll mean some sweet musical guests too

Yeah. I made a LOL_WUT face at this last night...

Anyway, this theme is fantastic.
There are so many possibilities for it, from music in Anime, contemporary vs/ tradtional Japanese music... music in Japanese video games... too bad Nobuo and VGO already visited us last year! (However, I'm sure there will be some [i]amazing[/i] guests again for 2011!)

Not to mention the possibilities for cosplayers. There are so many 'musical' characters that I would love to see costumes of (of course Lacus, Vocaloids, but also Haruko from FLCL w/ her Bass guitar, BECK Mongolian Chop Squad, NANA, Gravitation, K-ON, and the good old anime idol singers of "back in the day" like Lin Minmay and Sharon Apple.)

this is a great theme!
jrock bands have been doing anime songs and if you get jrock bands.......
talk to curerockradio again! they brought gagaaling.
perhaps if a more popular band was brought....
say
VERSAILLES PHILHARMONIC QUINTET
DELUHI
RIN
MOI DIX MOIS

more people, no, tons of people would come just for the band.
for this years theme i want to see more JROCK cosplay!
i shall be doing either Hizaki or Mana cosplay!

If 'Gravitation' isn't involved in the cosplot in some way other than K-san being involved, I'll be very surprised.
