It is very hard to believe that this is your first comic convention because this looks as professional, as exciting and as wonderful as the ones that we have in the United States.

とてもすてきですね。(Totemo suteki desu ne.) “It looks amazing.”
I am so impressed by what I had seen. I am so impressed by the good humor and the good nature and the way you all seem to be enjoying yourselves so much. And this first convention is as big and as good as any of the big conventions in the United States so I wish you a lot of luck and I know these conventions will get bigger and better and the most important part of all, I hope I get invited to some of them again because I think you're wonderful. Thank you.

Stan Lee inspired a lot of people,myself included,to seek the 'hero' in themselves and bring out the best of yourself that you have to offer to the world,whether it is through your language skills,Budo or something entirely different you excell at.

Thank you for sharing this clip about Stan Lee's visit to Japan
