Many of you may already know this (I've known it for a week or two, but have been procrastinating on blogging it) but Aya Hirano, voice actress of Haruhi Suzumiya, will be one of the guests at Anime Expo 2007, along with Minori Chihara (Yuki Nagato) and Yuko Goto (Mikuru Asahina) and a number of others. They will be performing a concert, too, which probably means Bouken Desho Desho and God Knows, live, at the very least. I can't speak for everyone, but I am so jealous of AX attendees that I wish a lifetime of eternal suffering upon them. I would love to go, but Fanime Con has left my wallet so drained that there really is no way. Oh yeah, Gackt will be there too.
Extraneous information for those who aren't convinced: they also have the character designer and the director of the Death Note anime there. Combined with the fact that Aya Hirano is also Amane Misa's seiyuu in Death Note, that's a sizable chunk of Death Note's staff, too. And being as Death Note and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are basically the hottest two shows of 2006, it's safe to say that the guest list is pretty crazy. *shakes fist in despair* Curse you, Anime Expo, for taking all the best guests! (Though, now that I think about it, Inui-san and Takamura-san were pretty awesome guests, too.)
Anyway, consider this a belated heads-up for the uninformed. With any luck, I can get something of a con report from people who can afford to attend.
