Shikishi board featuring Ranka Lee ( ランカ・リー ) from Macross Frontier ( マクロス FRONTIER ), drawn and signed by the series' OP artist, Mamoru Yokota ( 横田 守 ).

I love Fanime. I can't say it enough. It draws in big names but still has that small con punch. And Yokota was one of those artists that, if he held an event where you just watch him eat for an hour, I'd go. Probably. Well...maybe if a huge drawing of Light was held behind him for an hour...

But, things change in a year. I don't know if Yokota wasn't feeling well or maybe he was unable to join the Mile High Club on his JAL flight, but Yokota was not a happy camper at Fanime.

I held slot 1 for his first autograph session on Saturday night. I was super excited, and on a high after receiving a sketch from Yoshimatsu. Although I knew how much Yokota hates drawing Macross Frontier stuff because he cites that he didn't do much work on the project, I figured that, as slot 1, he probably wouldn't be too grouchy about it.

(sigh)

I should have taken a cue from Yokota's disgust after a male Fanime staffer asked for a sketch for his male friend. But no... I figured he was just being a typical Japanese male. Unlike last year where he was cool with photos, this year, it really angered him. Unfortunately, since the staff hadn't said that photos weren't allowed and I was operating under the assumption that he was ok with them the year before, I took a picture.

Though..I guess I shouldn't worry too much. Yokota didn't remember me from the year before (though he remembered DrScorpio and his headband...pout pout!), so, perhaps all will be forgiven if he decides to show up in 2012.

And, in case you're wondering why Yokota opted for the pink marker for Ranka, well...the jury is still out over that one.
