Today, I faxed, phoned, emailed, and snail mailed some anime companies. I could show Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis, but I or the con would have to pay $250. Hahaha! Animeigo and Bandai Entertainment already emailed permission and did so for free. I have several more responses to wait for.
I also reserved a hotel room.
I'm thinking of these ten shifts to start with for people covering the room, open to splitting/combining/negotiating:
Saturday midnight-6am (marathon... Elfen Lied?)
Sunday midnight-6am (Saikano marathon... I'll work that one)
Evening hours, I made shorter shifts, so people needn't give up their entire evening.
Aside from thechick, I'll need to ask Condor for a few more staff members. I'll be posting to the Condor mailing list soon...
