Meeting RDA

Hi everyone!

While scrolling through the forum, I found in several different topics that people are talking about when they met RDA or even just saw him in real life.
There is no topic dedicated only to share the wonderful stories of these meetings so I figured one should be created ;)


And today seemed to be a great day for me to do it because it's been exactly a month ago today that I got to see him for real!

My story is simple, I heard he was coming to Paris manga and I knew I wanted to be there to see him, I just couldn't let that opportunity go. So I planned a weekend trip to Paris and got my ticket for the convention.
Unfortunately I could not afford a ticket for an autograph or a picture, but just being there and seeing him in real life was already huge!
I stayed a long time watching him sign the autographs from afar (I could have stayed there for hours!)
Then there was the Q&A, which was a lot of fun. I was sitting there, completely absorbed, with Rick in front of me, being himself just as I expected him to be, with his humor and cute mannerisms :D
So that was it, but this day will remain high on the list of my best days ever!!
I'm so looking forward to a next time, where I hope I'll be able to exchage even just a few words.


What about your stories? How did you first meet him? How many times?

This is a great topic, Juliette. I hope many will post some of their experiences of meeting RDA even if they have posted on various other threads in the forum.

I have not yet had the privilege of meeting him in person. One of these days, though, I will.

In the meantime, I love reading about the experiences of others here who have met him in person and I am so glad you got to see him in person in Paris. Know that is a memory you will cherish always.

Take care.

Hi Juliette,

that was definitely a nice experience!
I will meet him for the first time in May and I am very curious how it will be.
Seeing him alone will blow me away, I'm afraid!
I'm afraid I will not utter a word when I face him.
I talk to strangers every day through my job and if it's just about the weather, but I think his presence will just overwhelm me.
I'm actually pretty shy :? :roll:

Hi JackGywer!

Lucky you! You must be pretty excited!
But I know how you feel, I've imagined myself in this situation over and over again and still can't figure out the right thing I could say :?
And even if I did, I'm pretty sure it would not come out the way it was supposed to :roll: :lol:

Can't wait to hear how it went for you!

We have 'repeat offender' at our side, they'll help us.
It's reassuring to have a part of the RDA family around.
I know we'll take care of each other.
Without a good friend I've found here, I wouldn't come. And I'm looking forward to meet some other wild loyalists. As much as I'm fluttering meeting RDA for the fist time.
From where does we knows us? Right!
Thanks Kate!

Hi,
I’ll be meeting RDA for the eighth time in May (if all goes according to plan).
Maybe I can be of help for the Newbies at Fedcon.

To all who will be seeing Richard at the FedCon = whether for the first time or for the next time = please know that your reports back here will be very highly welcome and anticipated.

Please tell him that all of us "wild loyalists" love him and hope he will always be well - and that this wild loyalist at least would like very much for him to be back in a TV or Movie role soon. He deserves to be ON SCREEN! We miss him there so much.

Thanks and have a great time!
