I went to Sakura Con today. The main attraction for me this year was the Puella Shoujo Madoka Magica panel, which featured the writer and the producer answering questions. It was interesting to hear how the various people associated with the show– writer, director, character designer, composer, art director– each contributed to the final product. I also picked up the first two limited edition box sets (the third and final one hasn’t been released yet). I manfully resisted the impulse to buy an Akemi Homura figure, though.
