  7. Could we do a speed dating event at Otakon 2023??
  8. If I had to request a few people, I would like to see for the first time or again!: Amber Lee Connors Dawn Bennett Erika Harlacher Faye Mata and Arnie Pantoja (Faye tweeted this and she mentioned he is interested in going to some anime conventions!) Some of the Chainsaw man dub cast: Ryan Colt Levy Regan Murdock Suzie Yeung Sarah Wiedenheft Bryn Apprill Katelyn Barr
  9. If I remember correctly there was a block for amv and rap or hip hop that happened and I wasn't able to attend. I was wondering if anyone knew the amvs that played during that block.
  10. seeing morning musume '23 at otakon would be a dream come true, especially before mizuki graduates
  11. This may be for a con past 2023, but it would be fantastic to have an amateur orchestra that plays anime, J-pop, video game or even K-pop music. Katie Vedder used to run a Symphonic Anime Orchestra, and it was so much fun. It's labor-intensive: the organizer has to get sheet music, make musical arrangements, talk to players in advance and lead sessions during con. The con would have to provide space for practices and a performance and advertise for sign-ups months in advance. But Otakon's size and experience makes it uniquely capable of pulling off such a feat. Plus, I think it could generate

  13. Great thanks. I'll be sure to pass the word along.
  14. It would be fantastic to have an amateur orchestra that attendees can sign up for, even if it's past 2023. Katie Vedder used to run a Symphonic Anime Orchestra at some smaller cons and they were awesome. It's a labor-intensive proposition: the organizer has to buy sheet music, make musical arrangements, contact players several times before con and lead sessions during con, and the convention would have to help advertise sign-ups months in advance and provide space for multiple rehearsals and a performance. But because of all that, Otakon's size and experience means it's perhaps uniquely equipp
  15. At this time we are sorting through our options and playing a little wait-and-see. Our goal is that once we pick something we don't want to change it abruptly unless we absolutely have to. I believe that like last year, if we announce that vaccines are required - those who are unvaccinated and purchased their badges before the announcement was made, will be eligible for a refund.
  16. Does Otakon have any information yet on their covid policies for 2023? According to the WEWCC website, they dropped vaccine mandates for indoor events in DC as of February 2022. I wanted to clarify the policies before I pre-registered. Additionally, I have a few friends that have pre-registered and were wondering if the convention will provide refunds for registration if their vaccination status (rather lack thereof) prevents them from attending.
  17. Hi All! I know that Anime-NYC was held about 2 weeks ago. I was so busy at work and other things that I didn't have the time to put down my quick impression of it. This will be short. The Good: I haven't encountered any huge lines this year. Some of the big industry people came back with their huge booths in the Dealer's Room. Got to meet some old friends that I haven't seen in years. Able to go to most of the panels and screenings I wanted to attend. The Bad: Even though having to wear a mask was a policy at the con,
