    Didn't want to stray too far away from the convention center (only went about three blocks south from my hotel last year, although I may want to go a little further next year to check out the Spy Museum). However, there's a few areas of notice that are worth mentioning in terms of food, entertainment, and shopping. For food, a number of favorites from Baltimore (i.e. Five Guys, Hooters) do have locations nearby. Also, I did check out the City Tap House by the Renaissance on Saturday last year, so you may to try that. Sadly, another restaurant that I went to last year, Fuddrucker's, closed down. So, I can't recommend that. As for other places to check out, you can check out the National Mint or head to Gallery Place and either bowl a round at Lucky Strike or check out a film at the Regal Cinemas.

    There used to be an aquarium at the Department of Commerce building (dunno why it was there...) but it closed a few yeas back. Did you try Momofuku?

    So now that we have had our first otakon last year at it's new location, and with this otakon just around the corner, has anyone found some good food places and entertainment/sites to see? Last year, I found a place near the Grand Hyatt Washington. I forget what it's called, but theres 3 counters with different kinds of foods and they had the best Thai Curry I've ever had. But other than that, it was just the typical chinese take out, pizza and Dunkin... would like some good food places to go to (vegetarian options is a +). Also, we are arriving on Wednesday. We already saw all the museums. I don't know of there's an aquarium or anything else to see? What did you guys find last year that you noted as a "must return" place that's not the typical Subway and McDonalds? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Well, there is Todd Haberkorn. Just go to the main website and click on Guests. I'm sure more dub actors will be announced in due time.

  11. So it seems that this Otakon will be heavy with Mystic Messenger-related guests. Am I way out of the loop for not knowing about Mystic Messenger or is it from a genre I don't normally follow (i.e. Shoujo)? EDIT: Just looked it up on Wiki. (I should have done that first before asking the question) I see that it's a smartphone otome game aimed at girls/women and that explains why I was unaware of Mystic Messenger for two reasons: Its primary target audience is women. It's a smartphone game and I have no room left on my Android phone for any games - even if they were aimed at a shounen audience.

  13. For all the attendees who attended Otakon in Baltimore and remember the McKeldin Fountain that was a popular backdrop for cosplay photoshoots, there's an augmented-reality app that is dedicated specifically to the fountain and there's interviews of Otakon attendees that's part of this app: https://baltimorefishbowl.com/stories/with-augmented-reality-app-artists-virtually-revive-the-demolished-mckeldin-fountain/
  14. Otakorp is excited to announce that Cheritz co. Ltd will be having a fan event for their community of Mystic Messenger fans! They will be having an extended event are excited to interact with their fans in the United States! We’ll have more details as we draw closer to Otakon and please look forward to interacting with the creators and talent behind your favorite mobile game!

    So let me clarify a question I asked before. I was looking at the guests coming and I was wondering will there be any English dub voice actors coming to the con?

    WHAT ANIME?

    So if Hiroshi-kun is into Mecha models and this year's theme is "Giant Robots", I imagine he's going to be featured on this year's shirts.
  17. We are excited to announce Sujin Ri will be joining us at Otakon 2018 as developer behind Mystic Messenger! Otakorp is thankful to Cheritz co., ltd. for helping us bring out this talented creator. View all the guests we have announced so far on our website at: https://www.otakon.com/guests/

    WHAT ANIME?

    Quite correct, that's our mascot Hiroshi (his slightly older sister, Hiroko, is our girl mascot, and Crabby-chan is our animal mascot). The theme was fairy tales and legends that year, so the art evokes that. Here's where you can read about our mascots: https://www.otakon.com/info/mascots/ They've appeared in numerous comic strips, several opening animations, and plenty of commercials -- as well as in shirts and other paraphernalia. Each year we have a different theme to unify our art and programming. This year's is giant robots. Prior years have included time travel, super heroes, sports, racing, space, music, and food. Our last year in Baltimore we themed around voyages, and last year's theme was spies and espionage.
  19. We are excited to announce Ho San Yi will be joining us at Otakon 2018 as part of the talent behind Mystic Messenger! Ho San provides the voice for V! View all the guests we have announced so far on our website at: https://www.otakon.com/guests/

    BLASPHEMY! DOGEZA! NOW! HUT!
  21. Fadamor

    WHAT ANIME?

    I didn't think they used actual anime on the shirts. They usually have their mascots representing whatever the theme was for that year.

    WHAT ANIME?

    Can someone tell me the anime that is on the 2015 Otakon shirt?

  24. Not my cup of tea, but I like Otakon widening its net for guests.

    Will there be any dub guests?

    Surely. But you mean English dub guests. I'm intrigued by the Korean guests, even if Mystic Messenger doesn't seem like my thing. It's like when they brought Tony Ching in 2004 or director Ryuhei Kitamura in 2007. There's more to East Asian culture than Japan or anime, after all.

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    That would be cool. However, he will be a guest at a con the week before that, and another one the week before that, so I doubt he would want to take on another con.

    Will there be any dub guests?

    We're still 3 months out.....give it time They announce guests as soon as they are able. And I'm sure you mean English Dub? Because I'm wicked excited to meet those two Korean Dub Voice Actors :D
