Gainax @ FanimeCon 2008 Update stars

 We have dug up new confirmed information in regards to Gainax's appearance. Tony, a FanimeCon Forum Administrator and MusicFest Head, said,

"Ok, I'm told we have some really interesting guests coming from GAINAX, and a lot of them, but they themselves have requested not to publicize the details. They should be in the program guide. In any case, we're planning a lot of events with them, so there will be ample opportunity to get your GAINAX fix..."

Marie, Assistant Director of Marketing for FanimeCon responded to Tony's comment,
 
"Think of it as a gift. You don't know what it's going to be, but when you open it, you know it's going to be awesome! And you're not the only one who's going to be surprised. Not even staff knows who exactly is going to show up. So let's be surprised together!"

Gainax @ FanimeCon 2008 Preview stars

 Hiroyuki Yamaga, Co-Founder and President of Studio Gainax has a history of attending FanimeCon every year, but this year his name is absent from the Guests of Honor list. With a little digging into the FanimeCon boards, we have discovered some interesting details. 

At last year's Gurren Lagann Panel, Yamaga-san promised to bring more guests from Gainax (see our coverage located here ). It appears he'll be keeping his word.
