    Hello all, this is where I post my annual series of "Where to Eat for Otakon" videos and shamelessly plug myself! For those who haven't seen them, I just talk about things like transportation, safety in the city and con and of course...where the food is. I try to update from year to year. So, if you would like, please watch and I hope they help you all out! Where to Eat for Otakon, Part One: https://youtu.be/jeNBEibVRlE

    Everyone is entitled to mention who they want to request, people don't really need to argue for/against other people's suggestions. This is just a suggestions thread If you do not like another person's suggestion, do not need to argue or counter point on here. That would be going off topic I personally would like to meet Danny Choo =P Creator of the Smart Dolls and also one of the first Jpn focused blogs i have followed for many years =P

    It's back hons! This thread is a place where Otakon goers can stay ahead of any potential troubles getting to or from the 26th Otakon. I'm opening the thread early because the con is a little sooner in 2019, but also because Metro are about to consider one of FOUR different options concerning operating hours. They are: OPTION 1: Maintain current hours (Mon-Thu 5:30a - 11:30pm / Fri 5am - 1am / Sat 7am - 1am / Sun 8am - 11pm) OPTION 2: Revert to pre-2016 hours (Mon-Thu 5am - MIDNIGHT / Fri 5am - 3am / Sat 7am - 3am / Sun 7am - MIDNIGHT) OPTION 3 [Alternative 1]: Reduce weekend morning service, and increase late night service w/weeknight single tracking (Mon-Thu 5:30am - MIDNIGHT / Fri 5:30am - 3am / Sat 9am - 3am / Sun 10:30am - MIDNIGHT) OPTION 4 [Alternative 2]: Add an hour to Fri. & Sat. night and Sun. morn, but also increase weekend single tracking (Mon-Thu 5am -11:30pm / Fri 5am - 2am / Sat 7am - 2am / Sun 7am - 11pm) Each of these options will have an effect on how Otakon goers get around on Metro. More on this story as decisions are made.

    Did you know today is the 20th anniversary of DDR's release? If you haven't gone to play DDR in a while, now's a great time to get back into it!

    Game of Thrones would like a word... Anyways, I went to AnimeJapan in Tokyo in 2018, and while it was more of an anime trade show/fair than a traditional con, it had a lot of the same elements. Cosplayers, industry booths, meeting voice actors, merch for sale, etc. Though the most different thing I noticed was that I didn't see anyone arriving in cosplay to the con, most came with rolling suitcases and changed there. Fandom is a thing anywhere there's pop culture.

    There are about six different companies serving DC with scooters (and one with electric bikes). Prices range from 15c a minute (jump) to a dollar to start then ten cents every subsequent minute. Rather than downloading each individual app for them, what I reccomend is an app called transit: https://transitapp.com/ It shows every scooter/bike in the area. Thumb/click one and it'll open or download the necessary app for it. It also shows all nearby buses and trains, with arrival times. You can also use it like google maps to plan trips or to show any of that information for a location elsewhere.

    While it's true that the convention doesn't start until the 26th, the Washington Convention Center is still open for pre-regged attendees on Thursday for the pick-up of badges (those who aren't getting them in the mail), convention bag and 18+ wristband.

    Probably the concerts. I really like what Otakon is doing with those this year, though it’s a bad time for me to go in on VIP for them. If there’s anniversary merch, I’d like to get my paws on it. Really, I’m just looking forward to seeing the usual suspects, friends I see at every Otakon.

    Be careful if you do use the scooters. My friends and I saw one get stolen at a 7-11. Just watch where you put it or lock it up.

    Not necessarily con-related, but I finally hope to meet some of you people, like from Discord n' stuff. Y'all know who you are, lol.

    I would love to see Erica Mendez!! She is extremely talented and I enjoy her work such as Emma (Promise Neverland), Retsuko (Aggretsuko) and many more! This is my first time attending Otakon too!

    People have brought this up over and over. Many many people, including myself, don’t want him there. Inviting him would show a lack of concern for what he’s done to fans over the last 16-some years and what he’s alleged to have done to peers and others. Considering Mignogna is not in anything anymore, and likely never will be, there’s no reason to invite him anyway.

    Trying to get Elizabeth Maxwell to say Albedo's line "I don't even talk to anyone, who am I supposed to have sex with?!?" ...it's worth a shot...

    With all due respect Something Clever, Gaspar and Sozuke did nothing wrong. Stop acting like a "wanna-be" mod. The way you're responding to this is no less than trolling.

    I would like Otakon to have a full page picture of all the t-shirts designs from 1994 to present on their "Anniversary Con Book". Also, let the con book have pictures and other info on what was it's highlights for each particular years.

    I hope they do a "best of AMVs" segment for the last 25 years (or however far back they had the AMV contest) for all the best in shows. I know they did something similar for the Baltimore years.

    Reminder to anyone in the area that we are having a multi-game music tournament at GamePlay on June 22 (about a week and a half away). We have been putting a lot of work into getting ready and I hope to have a few more surprises ready for the big day.

    Thanks! There are many hotels near subway stops, but these are the ones I really like, and are in good areas.

    OMG -- you're right! I forgot about Thurs badge pick-up. (I don't pre-reg because I don't want to put all that personal info on a public computer, so I end up paying all that $$$ at the door.) Thanks for reminding me about Thurs. I gotta go find my brain, again.

    In general, I really hope the Makerspace comes back! We kept meaning to go, but just never found the time. Anniversary-wise, I agree that a retrospective of the AMV contest would be a great idea! Maybe some sort of panel discussing the history of the con from its inception to present day? That might be cool.
