    Default San Japan 2018

    Went to the anime convention in San Antonio Texas again this year. It was great fun as always. I was lucky enough to hang out for a bit with Mr. Kazuhiro Soeta. He did the key animation for the opening of Cowboy Bebop. Best of all he signed my the side panel insert for my Cowboy Bebop pachinko.

    Also, I got to meet fellow member kurumilover2003. There is no doubt, he’s a huge Cutie Honey fan. He was nice enough to let me play his Cutie Honey pachi for the first time. That was really fun.

    I've seen that Azusa Nakano image as a full size cutout on YJA a few times. So itasha has come to the USA.

    I should have taken pictures of the custom license plates. There were some good ones. These folks have to pay Texas real money to ave them on their cars.

    I never got a Girls und Panzer pachinko because I didnít like the frame. After seeing the frame in person, Iím thinking itís OK.

    After having my Girls und Panzer pachinko for a while I never notice the frame lights much anymore with so much happening on the screen. A Girls und Panzer pachinko would look nice next to the pachislo

    A quick note: if you get this frame, leave the door alarm intact otherwise the ball payout systems stops. In my early days of adjusting the nails during play I'd open the door and get blasted out of my chair. I thought I'd just unplug the door switch. The alarm stopped working but so did the payouts!

    Thanks Peteybob. I appreciate your insight and info. Makes me feel better about getting one.

    BTW, had a nice chat with the director of the English dub for Girls und Panzer. After we were done I gave him one of my parlor banners for the slot machine. He was happy to take it because his daughter is a fan of the show.
