    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!

    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.

    So, I'm looking to secure my hotel and I'm looking at some a little further away than I generally like, but I want to spend less on hotels this year. Now, I see that scooters have popped up in DC. Has anyone used them there? I used them while being in Denver recently, and they made getting around a breeze! Having a hotel a little farther away doesn't look so bad if these scooters are around.

    Well folks, Otakon has announced a whole slew of new guests on their Facebook page over the past week. I'm just wondering when these announced guests will show up on Otakon's main website.

    All functional weapons are banned from the convention center during Otakon with the exception of on-duty officers as according to local procedure and applicable law.

    www.dcconvention.com has Otakon listed with an extra day: July 25-28, 2019. Wasn't sure if any Otakon staff would like to contact them to correct it? Thanks for any help!

    Well, with less than 2 months to go, I'm really hoping to see a well-known Japanese seiyuu on the guest list. Fingers crossed...

    OKAY. I'm going to quote myself. There are cons he WILL be that, if you want to go and see him. Other than that.... wait for all the legal issues to clear up, and see what happens. To be fair, the poster above me made a well-written, passionate post. Kudos for that. Still, on Vic -- AGAIN: he's probably not coming back to Ota any time soon. Let's move on, shall we? Getting back on subject, how about some more classic VAs? Like Rachael Lillis or someone like that.

    Can't really say since we only know of one guest so far and the schedule won't be known until after all the guests are announced. So we'll see.

    Since one of Otakon's missions is to spread knowledge about east Asian culture beyond anime, what if we had a guest or two that was involved with a different style of animation? Like stop-motion. It's kind of to come mind recently that stop-motion animation isn't really an animation style you hear about coming from Japan. Like what if there could be a guest who was involved with stop-motion? Like anyone who's worked on the holiday specials released by Rankin/Bass? Not too many people know about this but the animation for practically every stop-motion tv holiday special released by Rankin/Bass (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Little Drummer Boy, Santa Claus is comin' to Town, etc.) WERE ALL ANIMATED IN JAPAN. That's just an example, of course, and I was just thinking that having someone who was involved with stop-motion would be a nice guest to have, and we could all learn how in any sort of stop-motion production, how the many figures and puppets are made, and setting the frames to the flow naturally in every little shot. Unless if it's already been done before, what if we could have a guest whose works involve stop-motion animation?
