  1. Today
  2. Holy crap.. I just had a mini heart attack, knowing that it'd be live a week from today... and not today. >_>
  3. We were excited to announce that the Hotel Block for Otakon 2021 out be opening on June 8th at Noon and we got a little ahead of ourselves. The previous announcement as a whole was mostly wrong. We apologize of any confusion and panic it might have caused. To clarify again the Otakon 2021 Hotel Block will open for booking on June 8th at Noon through our hotel partner Experient. To find out more information about the Hotel Block for Otakon 2021 please visit our official hotel page here.

  5. So we got a little excited and ahead ourselves with the news post. A corrected news post will be coming out shortly to clarify the errors. (Maybe these should not be written before we have our coffee in the morning) While we understand that members would be at work, we do try to chose a time to one when we can hope to accommodate as many members as possible but also to have tech support on hand for if anything goes wrong with either our own website or Experient's website. That is why the Noon time period on a weekday was chosen. It is the typical lunch hour and we have full tech support during weekdays.
  6. The title of this thread freaked me out for a moment because I thought I missed the announcement of the time/date of it opening. šŸ˜… But I'm happy that is not the case! Fingers cross I get lucky this year!
  7. I think you mean 2021? I also went to the page. The page says that it will be open on June 8th, 2020, a Monday, too. Some of us are going to be working and will not be able to go on the website on our work computers, and at least where I work, not allowed to use our personal electronics during our working hours. What I'm really saying is personally, most if not all the most desirable hotels would already be sold out by the time I get the chance to make my reservation. I guess it can't be helped.
  8. Note: We apologize, this announcement went out in error. Please see our corrected announcement. The Otakon 2020 Hotel Room Block is now Open! Reserve your room today and stay closer to the action. Find out more on the Otakon Hotels page here.
  9. Last week
  10. Earlier
  11. Yeah all major cons are making exceptions to their "no refund" policies for this year. I've yet to prereg for AnimeNYC 2020, but I will soon.. I wanna give it time to see how things unfold.
  12. Yes. I've already bought my badge some time ago. But I also told them if they do have to cancel, just roll it over for next year.
  13. Still no word locally (from my area), about Liberty Anime Con. Meanwile, ReedPop, who does New York Comic Con has yet to mention anything new, but they were having a series of "virtual" panels from time to time. Also, just to mention, it was sometime earlier last May when they had their first "pre-sale" for their 4 day badges. This year, nothing so far. I did hear from Anime-NYC. They said that it still a go so far, but they are keeping aware and will let us know if something drastically changes.
  14. Yeah it was being held at the Javits where NYCC and ANYC happen... I'm just hoping that by some MIRACLE AnimeNYC still happens... If it's not cancelled by like September I'm preregging and going even if I have to wear a mask the entire con (of which I hope won't be the case by then). Daniel are you going to ANYC? We could meet up and get lunch or something.
  15. New York International Auto Show Cancelled. It originally was supposed to be held around April, but then it was posponed for August. It may not be an "anime" con, but it's still a major show: https://www.autoshowny.com/
  16. fripSide. One of these years it's bound to happen.
  17. Coronavirus ain't gonna stop me from doing my annual request: Asian Kung Fu Generation.
  18. Iā€™ve been binging on Ace of Diamond, myself, in between keeping up with the way too many series I'm watching. And now I get to wait for Black Clover, Idolish7, and Food Wars, so I'm getting through it even faster! Only about 40 eps to go...
  19. I'm pretty sure this is probably still too soon to do this, but someone's gotta get the ball rolling sooner or later. While it's definitely unfortunate for 2020's Otakon to get canceled, at least there's more than plenty of time to prepare for next year. And hopefully this pain in the rear pandemic will be done and over with by then. Since Steve Blum, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, and Laura Post were originally invited for what would have been this year's edition of Otakon, I hope their invitations can roll into next year's. So here are the following people I would consider having guests for 2021: Dub Actors -Jamie Marchi -Monica Rial -Eric Vale -Justin Briner -Yuri Lowenthal -Tara Platt -Xander Mobus -Billy Kametz -Faye Mata -Chris Hackney -Kira Buckland -Karen Strassman -Crispin Freeman -Matt Mercer -Keith Silverstein -Charlet Chung -Keith Ferguson -Brittney Karbowski -Spike Spencer -J Michael Tatum -Brandon McGinnis -Erica Lindbeck -Xanthe Hyunh -Zach Aguilar -Aleks Le -Briana Knickerbocker -Sean Chiplock Seiyuu -Yoko Hikasa -Yoshisugu Matsuoka -Haruka Tomatsu -Ai Kayano Musical Acts -Fripside -Linked Horizon -Eir Aoi -Lenny Code Fiction -Lyn (she sang some of the songs on Persona 5) -Madkid -Myth and Roid And what if we had a Power Ranger actor or two? What if Austin St. John, David Yost, and/or Walter Jones (original red, blue, and black rangers respectively) could be guests? That's all that comes to mind at the moment. I hope there can be a little consideration in at least one or two individuals I've listed. And I can't make any promises, but I'll at least try not to get my hopes up this time.
  20. Nice interview with the president and con chair by AnimeCons TV, talking about the cancellation process and other topics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BCMvBRtO74
  21. Well, since I get called to work from time to time, I manage to at least get some watching done: "Hyperdimension Neptunia" (The complete series) "And You Thought There Is Never A Girl Online?" "Mary And The Witch's Flower" (Movie) "WorldEnd: What Are You Doing At The End Of The World? Are You Busy? Will You Save Us? (this is what I'm currently watching) Stuff I've lent to a coworker: "Interstella 5555 The 5tory Of The 5ecret 5tar 5ystem" "No Game No Life 0" (movie) Magic Knight Rayearth (complete tv series) Lent out to a few people with children: "A Little Snow Fairy Sugar" (complete) "Angelic Layer" That is it, so far.
  22. I do have 2 large mugs that I bought from them at New York Comic Con last year. It does have New York Con etched on them, but not the year.
  23. Wild Bill's is selling the tumbler they would've had at AB with a coupon you can use for a fill-up at next year's event. Maybe Otakon can get a jump on selling the bottomless mugs, if those are going to be a thing next year. OTOH, when Otakon last had those, I don't recall them being stamped with a year or anything.
  24. It would be cool if you guys had some limited 2020 merch available at other cons later in the year or into next year at the booths you usually set up. I typically attend Nekocon in the beginning of November and you guys typically have a booth there. I'm saving all my "lost 2020" merchandise.
  25. We do have people exploring various options for ways to get you opportunities to help support us with things like limited edition 2020 merch. We'll also be looking into re-opening member registration so if you missed the early bird rate, you'd be able to lock in 2019's rate for 2020. Nothing official to announce yet, but keep your eyes out.
  26. Sure! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  27. Thanks for watching my videos! Perhaps next year we can hangout and have that drink!
  28. I'm really sad to see the con not happening this year but it was bound to happen and I think it was a hard but good choice to make! I do second this ( ^^^^^ )! I would love to buy some 2020 merchandise if that's something that can be made available!
