–Greg is now in the panel. I will update this when I wake up, at around 10AM ET in all likelihood. I'm sure there will be a slew of messages waiting for me then. Special 7 with Greg will air tonight and we'll discuss his time at Jump Festa 2011 in far more detail.--
12/19/10 - 1:34AM ET: "[got a] seat in the front center section. Waiting for [OP panel to] start."

12/18/10 - 11:55PM ET: "Nurari ended and they cut the feed. will find out if it's for good."
12/18/10 - 11:09PM ET: "The nerds hav come out of the woodwork for this but theyre still running. Looks like the final hurdle will indeed b Naruto. As if we needed more reason to hate it."
12/18/10 - 10:48PM ET: "Here's deal yo. Seems that the Toei mini stages are all anime-only talk. As I'll talk more about on the podcast, the cast was last all together at JF last year so they have very little to talk about. Thus if the feed isnt cut I will skip the last mini stage to keep our spot which is awesome."
12/18/10 - 10:20PM ET: "Sket dance over. feed still live. up next Nurari"
12/18/10 - 9:43PM ET: "OK VA mini stage over. Kinda a wash because not much talk about the series however Iva's VA showed up."
12/18/10 - 9:40PM ET: "Second stage (Sket Dance) still live. Im worried about the next stage. Nurarihyon. While it doesnt hav many fans they r fangirly and might cal a LOT of attention which wuld b ok if fucking Naruto didnt fall right after it."
12/18/10 - 8:45PM ET: "there's a One Piece Toriko VA mini stage at Toei. I'll try to get it but no promise as we r currently fighting for the best spot 4 the video feed."
12/18/10 - 8:24AM ET: Picture of the Official English spellings for the Whitebeard Pirates:

12/18/10 - 6:51AM ET: Day 1 Report: "We went to the place where we were able to see the video of the first JUMP Stage in the morning at 3:00PM and at 4PM at showtime the screen was blank. We asked the staff. They SAID the device transmitting the signal broke and they'd been trying to fix it all day." Greg doesn't believe them. "I will do my best tomorrow and I WILL literally be goveling at the entrance for someone to let me in but I can't promise anything." Also, look forward to the Jump Festa podcast special a little earlier…
