so there were many updates today regarding Sho's appearance at NYCC! GOOD NEWS


"New York Comic Con revealed last month that maverick Japanese director Takashi Miike and superstar actor and pop star Sho Sakurai will attend New York Comic Con and present the World Premiere of their upcoming feature film, Yatterman. The news of Yatterman's premiere and Miike and Sakurai's appearances quickly spread throughout the media, talked about by press and fans from America to Japan. And soon after, we made note that because of some changes from Japan, we'd be revising the schedule of Yatterman events. Today, NYCC can reveal the full and final schedule of Yatterman, Takashi Miike, and Sho Sakurai events at New York Comic Con.

Meet Yatterman Star Sho Sakurai
2:45 PM, Friday, February 6, Yatterman / Nikkatsu Booth (#1315) (Jacob Javits Center)
Star of Yatterman and Japan’s top pop idol Sho Sakurai makes a rare personal appearance for his fans, many of whom have come from very far away to see him. Stop by the booth to hear his personal greeting to his fans and to get a glimpse at one of Japan’s top stars. (Please note that Sakurai’s time will be limited and that his appearance is subject to change or cancellation for security reasons. All photography and video recording of Sakurai is strictly prohibited, and he is unable to sign autographs at this time.)

Yatterman Booth
Booth #1315 (Jacob Javits Center)
Get a glimpse of Yatterman all weekend long at the Nikkatsu booth on the New York Comic Con show floor. Additionally, on Friday, February 6, tickets for that night’s 8:00 pm World Premiere screening of Yatterman will be distributed free to fans beginning promptly at 3:00 — ask a booth staff member for your ticket. (Ticket numbers are limited and do not guarantee movie admission.)

Yatterman Panel
4:00 PM, Friday, February 6, IGN Theater (Jacob Javits Center)
Fans have been waiting for Takashi Miike to create a giant robot movie for years, and finally it’s here! Takashi Miike will premiere the first nine minutes of Yatterman for the first time anywhere in the world at NYCC's Yatterman panel and then speak about the film and take questions from fans in a panel moderated by Subway Cinema.

Yatterman Signing
4:00 PM, Friday, February 6, IGN Theater (Jacob Javits Center)
Following the Yatterman panel, director Takashi Miike will be signing autographs for fans for a limited time. Sakurai will not be signing autographs at NYCC.

Yatterman World Premiere
8:00 PM, Friday, February 6, Directors Guild Theater (110 West 57th Street)
This is it! The first time the brand-new, live-action, Japanese feature film Yatterman is screened anywhere in the world, and New York Comic Con, Subway Cinema, and Nikkatsu are all thrilled to open this event to fans. Free tickets to the Yatterman premiere will be distributed to fans on Friday, February 6 at the Nikkatsu booth (#1315), starting at 3:00 pm. Takashi Miike and Sho Sakurai will both be present at this special event. Please note, though, that Sakurai's appearance is subject to change or cancellation for security reasons. Tickets are subject to limited availability and access to the cinema is on a strictly first-come, first-served basis; arrive early to guarantee your seat. Note that no cameras or recording devices will be allowed inside the DGA Theater.

New York Comic Con is excited to welcome Miike, Sakurai, and Yatterman to New York. We know plans have changed since our original announcement, and we hope fans understand the reason for these changes. Not present in New York Comic Con's revised Yatterman plans are Sho Sakurai's autographing signing and a second screening of Yatterman, originally scheduled for Saturday night. Both of these events have been canceled due to security concerns. We know fans have been clamoring for more information and more access to Sakurai, and NYCC has been working with all our partners to make this a possibility, but there are some security issues we cannot get around, and as such, we have to announce this revised schedule"

!!!!! SHO IN PERSON, he's making an appearance just for us! Looks like we created enough of buzz to get their attention!
no autograph signing, but comeone.... that was too good to be true, we knew Johnny's wouldn't let that one slide.
BUT SHO yess!
so at 3 tickets will begin to be given away!

okay so



(Also, please note: we want as many of you as possible to see YATTERMAN. While Comic Con attendees, and giveaway winners, will receive priority seating, we will be holding a certain number of tickets for the general public to be given away on a first-come-first-served basis right before the screening begins. So come on down! We can’t make any promises but you know us…we’ll do our best to get as many people as humanly possible into the film)

(Also, also please note: if you just want to show your support for Sho Sakurai and Takashi Miike, they will be walking the red carpet before the screening and there will be news crews from the US, Japan and China there to capture the fan reaction. So come on out, dress up like Yatter-wan and cheer!)"

so if any of us don't manage to get tickets, then there still is a chance right up to the last minute!

I'm planning on hanging around the Nikkatsu booth, but if they have a problem with a group of girls loitering there, I wanna go to a very near by location and wait. don't want to miss this!

all the news for now!

As I just told my excitable friend, cutetakato... XD

We will probably be instructed by NYCC staff to line up so that we can see Sho at his booth. They've done this before with other guests, so it should be orderly and fair. :D
