  1. I think that since the rest of Otakon is pointedly catered towards asian culture. the rave and dance should be no exception. We should have DJs that play exclusively asian pop and remixes and the like, the use of a screen blaring anime would be a nice tinge too. I'm sure there is enough in the Japanese dance music pool to bring out authenticism and really satisfied con-goers.

    The problem is that the more the otarave becomes like another U.S. Baltimore dance club, the more non-otaku we'll have registered just to crash the rave and the more otaku alienation we'll have during a weekend that's supposed to be anoverwhelmingly asian culture celebration.

  2. Maybe it's from lack of experience, but Otakon-wise I'd gauge my value of a hotel by how close it is to the con. The hotel to me is a place to get 1 shower, maybe late night/early morning snack, and a few hours of sleep. I also put my bags in there.

  3. While I'm thinking of doing adult Gohan from DBZ, I may go the more unique route and do the ever-so-rare Barry Burton from Resident Evil for this year.

    I think everyone is too harsh on the topic creator-- I agree with her. While everyone SHOULD have no trouble cosplaying what they want, people should WANT to be bold and bring something new to the table

    Last year I was Riku from Kingdom Hearts, and I recognize that a lot of my con interaction was brought on because I was dressed as such a popular character. I like Kingdom Hearts and mainly because I was Riku I was pretty much immediately integrated into the FF/KH crowd.

    But you know what? I'll still meet tons of new folk as an under the radar character such as Barry and I'll probably bring a higher level of impression to fellow Resident Evil fans because my cosplay won't be one that they'd be seeing over nine thousand times during the con.

    So I'm giving a call out too!: Next time you bring out your juunin vest-- Think about picking up something more unique!

  4. Advanced screenings like this one are usually worked out directly with a local promotion company. In this case (and indeed in most of them to date), we've worked with Allied Baltimore. Companies like that arrange for promotions and radio contests and press screenings. (And our involvement there started because an old friend of mine was their screening coordinator.)

    At con, it's more often directly coordinated between us and the US distributor.

    In this case, it would be a simple matter of requesting permission to show it, as it's likely to be available on DVD by then.

    Your request to have the film shown at Otakon will be passed along to the head of video programming.

  5. I was one of the twenty recently selected to go see the forbidden kingdom. I went, I saw, I thoroughly enjoyed, and then I curious'd. Is there any way to put in a vote for this fine film to be shown for all the lovely otaku to enjoy this year? This brings me to inquire if whether people sign up to show movies like they sign up for panels, or if all screenings and legal matters thereof are run by Otacorp?

    I know this is borderline Q and A, but the main point of this topic is to put in my reccomendation for SOMEONE to showcase this film at Otakon. It's quite the asian delight.

  6. I found somebody last year to hang around with, deep conversation with, hug with, touch with, etc. etc... if it happens it happens. I go to Otakon to meet new PEOPLE, not nessesarily potential loved ones. This year I have a girlfriend that "couldn't be less interested in asian culture" so obviously I'm not taking her along, which she is fine with. Obviously I won't be open for match-making.
