50 years of anime openings: anime boston edition

Below is the playlist from "50 Years: AB Edition." The room went to capacity fairly quickly, but as far along as 80 minutes, people were still replacing those who wandered out. At 120 minutes, it was one of the longer incarnations of the panel, but one that went rather well. I was actually very pleased with the final rundown. I was also rather pleased by the reactions many of the videos received, Attack on Titan especially. There was a lot of love for that series this weekend, and about half the audience cheered when the OP started playing. I'm still hoping to get a few more converts to Psycho Pass, as well, after swapping to the (superior) second OP. 

I want to than Lou for giving me the chance to present this panel this year. It was also scheduled at exactly the right time to help me recover from two straight lectures, rehydrate and unwind.
