WAKFU Animated Series: Anime Expo 2014

News
On Friday, July 4th, 2014, Ankama will be holding a special screening of Wakfu episodes at Anime Expo in the Los Angeles Convention Center in the USA! After the screening, there will be a Wakfu Anime panel where you can discuss the show and ask questions of Ankama reps, including your faithful Sabi, who will be attending the show.

AnimeExpo is the largest anime, manga, and Japanese culture convention in North America, so you can be sure that Yugo and friends will be warmly welcomed.

Don't miss this great opportunity to meet other Wakfu fans in an animation-friendly environment. There may even be a special surprise for Kickstarter backers who attend...

The showing starts at 5:45 PM in Video Room 1 on July 4th and the panel begins at 8:45 PM in LP4 on the same day.

Register for the convention now to get the best entrance price

We hope to see you there!  
First Ankama intervention

Just did the maths: $35.00 for a 1-day pass to the Expo. So for myself and Mouse, it would come out to more than a 1-Year Subscription to Wakfu.

We -want- to come, but have a few questions, before we can justify that kind of expense:

Will there be a discount pass for just attending the Ankama stuff?

Will there be substantial freebies given away by Ankama to attendees?

Thanks!

And yes Mari, if we go, and you and Nir can get your buttocks up to LA, I'd be happy to drive happy We can have adventures!

Hi TommyTrouble!

Regarding your questions, unfortunately there will be no discount pass for attending as Anime Expo is also its own organization.

We are planning on having goodies which will be given out by myself and other Ankama staff.

I be happy to see all of you if you get to be able to make it . smile

Whether we attend will depend on Sabi's answers to what I asked earlier.

Needs to be worth the $35 each person, if I'm gonna go. (not to mention travel, parking, food, etc)

Will there be freebies and giveaways?

Will there be an optional, smaller price just for folks who are there only to see the Ankama stuff?

Tommy, you should ask Ankama to pay you a five star hotel room as well. Maybe [Sabi] could make you breakfast in the morning before the Expo begins. I'd suggest asking around.

Nah, I just don't want to dump over a year's subscription fees on a few hours of Wakfu anime clips I'll see in the future anyways, unless there's gonna be something more worthwhile going on.

If this was a Wakfu or Krosmaster thing, I'd be all over it.

If there was the usual grab bags of stuff from French conventions, I'd go.

If there was unique titles and the rose sidekick, I'd go.

But if it's gonna be $70-100 for just some vague mumbling and clips of animation, I'll wait, and spend the money on the finished episodes and movie, when they become available.

Can't make it. I live in Canada. Someone wants to pick me up? I'll offer some french fries and gravy. Also some curd cheese in it to make it a poutine.

Sadly, we can't go sad Mouse and Snaus say sorry, Sabi. I hope it's a successful show, and you get lots of folks at the Expo in to see the awesome artwork and talent of Ankama!

Show them your True Powers, Sabrina!

I shall represent the community to the upcoming and already fans of WAKFU, let's conquer the world!

And here is a flyer if you would like to share it with your friends on facebook, Twitter, Kickstarter, anywhere you would like:

I had a wonderful time at the panel. It kinda sucked that the entire presentation was rushed due to time constraints...but other than that minor hiccup, the crowd was super responsive to what was being shown. The swag was nice (got a Nox figure, along with a cd) I even got to meet Sabi! ^^
