    I just want to meet the guests do I go to the center for that and I may be about to help you out at Sakura-Con if I don’t have something going on that day.

      Robin – we will have single-day passes available if you just want to meet the guests (many will have signings). That info should be posted on here once we have our programming line-up more secure. Hope we do get the chance to see you at Sakura-Con!
