  2. Last week
  3. Hi! You're right. Anime North falls under the "Major conventions" category, but it's in Canada, and I was leaning more on conventions in the US. Anyway, it seems like May is the outer fringe of dates when the cancellations or postponements of cons and events are taking place. I haven't seen or heard of any cons cancelling or postponing from June on yet.
  4. Can we get more hip hop and rap music at the rave this year!!!!! Something that everyone can dance too.. don’t nobody wanna hear boom da boom all night long lol
  5. Attendance wise, Anime North looks like a major convention, so it can be added to the list of cancelled or postponed conventions until next year. (Anime Frontier, a convention that was going to debut this year will also have to wait until next year. Both conventions would have been scheduled for May).
  6. Honestly I will be pleasantly surprised if Otakon actually happens this year. Even if the pandemic begins to subside by the summer, there is still a huge risk factor and a chance of a temporary resurgence of the illness as people begin to go back to their daily lives and interact with one another. For now I'm banking on Nekocon in November.
  7. Seems kinda odd, considering that people were disappointed but understanding when Anime Boston cancelled. Different crowd, I guess?
  8. Earlier
  9. Well, it's a good thing that there's a supermarket right across the street from me. I was just there a few minutes ago and I'm already seeing people buying whatever food and toiletries they can get their hands on (wearing latex gloves of course). It also seems like I'm the only one who in my department that lives almost at the heart of Manhattan (Chelsea), I'm getting phone calls from friends and former coworkers as far away as Florida asking me what's going on.
  10. Well..... it wasn't shelter in place for NYC, but it's close enough. If it's not an essential business, it's either close or work at home. And the order (Starting Sunday) was from the governor rather than the mayor. At least I have plenty of DVD's, Blue Rays, online streaming to watch since I've been falling behind alot or too busy. Index and Railgun series alone should keep me occupied when not working.
  11. Mary Elizabeth started as a voice director of Anime dubs with Cowboy Bebop, Digimon Tamers, Wolf’s Rain, Naruto and Naruto Shippuden and Glitter Force. She then moved on to dialogue directing for original animation and is currently voice directing She-Ra: Princesses of Power, Star Wars Resistance, Tangled: The Series and Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz as well as 4 new shows that have yet to be announced. She also directed the VO on Billy Dilley’s Super Subterranean Summer and Penn Zero: Part Time Hero for Disney. She has directed the 6 Naruto Movies and received the SPJA award for best director for her work on the series. She has also voice directed many video game titles which include Crash Bandicoot N.

Steve Blum’s unmistakable deep, raspy, yet sometimes silky smooth voice has landed him a career full of incredible, iconic characters. He’s been the Voice of T.O.M. the robotic Promo host from Toonami (on Adult Swim) since 2000, and a pro Voice Actor for over 30 years. Best known as Spike from Cowboy Bebop, Zeb from Star Wars Rebels, Wolverine from X-Men Cartoons & Games, Starscream from Transformers Prime, Tank Dempsey from Call of Duty, Grunt from Mass Effect, Subzero and others from Mortal Kombat X and 11, Amon from Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Shoe and Sparky from the Boxtrolls feature film & thousands of other beloved characters from shows, games, commercials and movies like Bumblebee, Solo, Rogue One, Incredibles 2 and Shazam. His huge vocal range has made him one of the most sought after voice actors on the planet. He even holds the current Guinness World Record for most voices in video games and has since 2012!
  12. Yup. So many butthurt people on FaceBook when the announcement dropped.. Good lord.

  17. Well people, my job actually gave me a "furlough" until March 30th technically. I had to take my job's phone with my own phone so I can be reached if I have to come back sooner. Meanwhile, our mayor is considering having a "shelter in place" policy for the entire city. Anyway, I'm going to take this time to finish up certain things and also, I've been watching "Chaika The Coffin Princess" Blu-Ray from time to time. Now I can finish it.
  18. Hi people! I thought we should have a thread listing of cons that are either postponed or cancelled because of this health emergency we're having here in our country. Anime Boston - Cancelled https://www.animeboston.com/news/article/817 Sakura-Con - Cancelled http://sakuracon.org/ A-Con 31 - Postponed https://www.a-kon.com/
  19. So, it is starting to look like this CORVID-19 thing might (as in "maybe", not for sure) be turning into total poopshow for months. Anything to share about the current thoughts and inclinations of the Otakon officers and staff? My wife is 68 years old and still has a compromised immune system from chemo a couple of years ago, so we're wondering how Otakon is leaning in regards to the next convention.
  20. https://www.ticketmaster.com/discover/eventupdates?sort=date%2Casc&classificationId=KZFzniwnSyZfZ7v7nJ&radius=10&unit=miles&status=rescheduled DC concert has been rescheduled to September 8th
