How about: The way of Gokudo - The Underground Yakuza world
A panel detailing the influence of Yakuza in Japan and how it is portrayed in anime/video games.

I thought about doing this since the Yakuza games had been getting popular. And it would interesting how they are portrayed in anime like Hinamatsuri, Nisekoi, Gokusen, etc., but sadly I don't have the time to develop a panel for this.

I have an panel idea that I would love to present someday, but unfortunately I have a fear of speaking in front of large crowds, so here it is: Alchemy in Anime.

Said panel would talk about different anime that use alchemy as a means of magic or science, as well as their applications. Bonus points if Fullmetal Alchemist is not used as an example.

Honestly I'd love to see a JOJO's Bizarre Adventure panel this year since we have so many VAs from the series!
