Japan Expo July 2009

This as been a long long way, but here is the Japan Expo report !

This was much bigger. More than six time the visitors of the Chibi Japan Expo.
This real Japan Expo is the biggest European convention about japanimation, manga and video games !

Most of the team was there. We had to, THE Japan Expo is a gigantic event!

A first view of the team!

From left to right: RMR, whose fanfiction on lunionsacre.net described the fight Cell-Dabra, and who helps on the scenario. Then Faye, our beloved colorist you all already know :)

Salagir in the middle, the brain of this whole thing ; Thibarik who makes our appareances to these conventions a reality and help on diverse things ; and then, Gogeta Jr, the great magicien :)

Another team shot, without Gogeta Jr, but with two other members: Rachid (with cap), who made the logo (see his other works with Salagir on www.salachid.com), and Attila, one of the spanish translators.

Some times, it was very quiet... We almost hear the snoring of Thibarik and RMR... :-/

But when the crowd comes... it's sometimes a mess !
But always fun

Unnoticeable, still essential...

His website!

You're on air!

A stand... small but strong ;)

I was about to take a photo of Coola, when he attacked me !

Thanksfully, super-Vegeta came and saved my ass, we're fine :p

Videl also came to say hello :)

Folks, a spy infiltrated the team of DBM, can you find him?

- So my friend goes to the movies to watch DBE...
- Ah ah ah ah !
- Wait, my joke isn't over yet!
- Ah ah ah ah !

A French online-TV channel, well known by french otakus and geeks, named NoLife, came in the amator section of the Japan Expo for us, thanks guys!

"- DBGT sucks guys, it sucks real real hard!!"
"-Err... can we stay on-topic please?"
Salagir, always too honest for his own good!

Here it is for the photographs, folks!
Now let's see some pictures made by Gogeta jr and Salagir that the readers who came at the Japan Expo scanned and sent us!

We made more than 110 pictures, most of them by Gogeta Jr, but also some on the theme of Geek's World by Salagir.
The character that was asked for the most was Vegete (also first at the Chibi) with 17 pictures, then Gokû, 13 pictures. On third base, Tom from GsW, 9 pictures, then Ray from GsW, Trunks, Gohan (teen), Vegetto...

Bonus by Mazzu: some others cosplay and other products at the Japan Expo. It's a selectio of things we like, so DBZ and Zelda (it's Salagir who forced us for Zelda).
Warning! We inserted a traumatizing image in this lot!

And the best for the end... the video!

Flash and Javascript are needed in order to play video.

For those who don't like streaming, download the video in divX with all the subtitles.

By the way, about videos, Thibarik, who also make AMVs, took part to an internationnal contest of animated musicals videos at this Japan Expo 2009. You can download his clip here. Don't hesitate to tell what you think of it, his DBZ AMV was ranked 4th on 186 :)

Thanks to David, Edge, Charles Henri, Filo-Man, momoaliz and Ryujii for the pictures and fanarts they sent, and to Risbo for the video editing.

Thanks to you, reader... We are dragged by your support!

This minicomic is classic for anyone who has every been annoyed by someone posting "first" and nothing else.
By the way I knew this had been a issue for some on the English boards but has their been discussion about people calling out first on the French boards as well? I would be interested in knowing if people do this in every language or if it is less common for people from some places to call out first.

> Lolek : do you sell chapters of DBM in the Internet??

> BakaOtaku : people calling out first on the French boards as well?
Sadly, first exists in France too... a lot. Lot. Lot.

> Salagir : People calling out first
Sigh I guess its just a inevitable part of online comics having response boards.
Either that or you set a bad example with your "Test, this is the first comment !" post on page one :)

P.S. Have you ever noticed that your "Test, this is the first comment !" post is actually dated after several other posts on latter pages, namely ones by you, Nappa, and myself on the English boards and on the French boards you, Tom', dracke, and Komikusu :P

Well, you discovered the site before it's opening, and I changed the dates of my tests when I opened, to make it look more recent. Forgot about the others comments at the time :)

Get enough money and go to Comiket! Show Japan your work! And most importantly - print out one copy and give it to Toriyama as a present.

Please read the comment rules before you post (link down there), or else your comment may be deleted. Thanks.

A few rules to follow when you post

Your comments may be deleted if they don't comply with any of the following rules. Moreover, you may be banned, depending on the content or the insistence of your messages. These rules may be applied even if your comment is about DBM!

#0. Comments, discussions or issues about the forum should stay on the forum.

#1. Any comment about the moderation will not be tolerated in that comment space. It's not allowed to ask why your comment had been deleted either. It's out of topic. If you want to discuss it, please send your question to the team (in menu "The authors")

#2. In that comment space, comments are only about DBM, and mostly about the current page. It's forbidden to speak about anything else. Debates linked to DBM but drifting to something else than the current page must not last for too long. If it's related with the current page but the two sides just stand firm, then it's useless to let it go on further.

#3. Do not post insult, provocation, racist, sexist, (etc) comments.

#4. Follow the rules of the English language as much as possible. No sms. If we consider a comment isn't readable, it'll be deleted.

#5. No flooding. So, do not send twice (or more) the same message, links or comments whose content is written with capital letters. The 'first' and other comments of the kind are not tolerated either.

#6. Ads aren't allowed in the comments, even if it's just for one time. Even if you're introducing yourself. Even if they're about DBZ. Even if they are short.
The 'partner sites' page is here for that.
No link can be posted, unless it had a direct connection with the current page.

#7. The “signature” aren't tolerated either (a signature is a sentence or a link at the end of your comment, that is repeated – or not – and that doesn't have any connection with what you just said and with DBM)

#8. Please, make sure that your comment does make sense, at least a little. So, please, do not send comment that are just 'yeah!' 'oh!' 'huh?' 'pfff'... so that people may know what you're talking about.

#9. Do not double post (two posts one after the other). You can use the 'edit' button. Of course, you're allowed to send several comments on the same page (well, no spamming either).

#10. Do not pretend you're another commenter.

#11. Do not write several messages with exactly the same idea on a page.

#12. No value judgement! Provocation and/or judgements (such as 'you're an idiot', 'you certainly are a kid', 'learn to read', 'your comment is rubbish', 'such a debate is useless'...) are forbidden. You comment and debate about the comics, not about the readers and their intentions. Moreover, if a debate doesn't interest you, do not take part in it.

#13. Besides, do not try to second-guess what the authors (or even the readers) have in mind. For instance: “It's obvious they're not motivated anymore”, “DBM will soon end”. You can't read people's thoughts.

#14. Please, avoid political, religious, identity, community etc... references.

#15. Do not accuse one another of this and that. For instance: a reader who dislike Bra isn't necessarily misogynous, a reader who dislike Uub isn't necessarily a racist.

#16. Do not be extreme to the point you lose every objectivity, even if you're defending DBM. Do not think you're moderator. So, for instance, do not write: 'Don't read if you don't like it.' 'Go and try and draw better!' or 'Stop criticizing!!' Readers may, or may not, approve of the scenario, the characters or the drawings. Debate if you wish, but keep objective. Really: do not try to do the job of the moderators, you just give them more work to do.

#17. If ever you've questions about DBM (the publication of the next page, how we work...), do not ask it here. Read the FAQ. If you can't find the answer in there, you can send a mail to the DBM team in the 'The Authors' section.

#18. Do not reply to anyone who doesn't follow one of these rules for your comment may be deleted, even if it's about DBM too.

#19. Don't ask how gravatar works, don't test your gravatar here. Seriously. Gravatar is easy to use. If you can't do it, just post without avatar. If you want help, search internet or gravatar.com.
