  1. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    As I've been watching Dragon Ball Super I wish Otakon would finally get Ryo Horikawa. I know he has been at other conventions but I really want to meet him. Plus Legend of the Galactic Heroes is also finally legally available in the US. But other top Seiyuu Kamiya Hiroshi Sakurai Takahiro Sakamoto Maaya (also a great musical guest) There are plenty of other Seiyuu I would be more than happy with too but trying to limit to my choices. As for directors Rie Matsumoto Takahiro Omori Akitaro Daichi Hiroshi Nagahama Morio Asaka Hiroyuki Imaishi Junichi Sato Sayo Yamamoto (and the rest of the Yuri on Ice staff)
  2. Negatives Nothing really ugly for me but while it wasn't a horribly long line I was still sweating by the end of the Saturday morning bag check. It kind of really sucks to have to stand in a long line to get in the convention center when you already have your badge. And if you are in a rush to get to a panel or autograph line this can really mess with your schedule. Luckily the bag check line didn't interfere with me getting into anything I wanted to do this year but I am worried about the future and if the con grows. I did enjoy the Anisong World Matsuri but where I was sitting on Friday (Front section towards the middle. So definitely not VIP seats but not bad seats) had really awful acoustics. Don't get me wrong the concert was a lot of fun but certain songs were really hard to hear. At some points in the concert I could only hear screaming. I never had this problem at any other concert I've attended at Otakon. I also kind of wish Jam Project sang some of their individual songs. But I got to see them do this twice before so this is ultimately a minor thing. Perhaps it's my own time management but I found I did a lot less at this con then at previous cons. I am also sorry I missed getting a Gurren Lagann 10th Anniversary shirt. Entirely my own fault though as I didn't get to the dealer room until late on Saturday. I did get an Anisong Matsuri shirt at least. Positives Besides the sound issue I did really enjoy the Friday Night Anisong World Matsuri. This is my 3rd time seeing Jam Project and after missing him twice I finally saw TM Revolution. and he was just wonderful. I loved the last song seeing them perform together on stage that was such a great moment. And it was great to finally hear Heart of Sword live. That was a really special moment for me. I do like the new location. Bigger facilities and so many great options of places to eat. I love that we are right near Chinatown. And on a selfish note my friend lives in DC so I no longer have to pay for a hotel room. Such a huge cost savings is a great benefit. The DC Metro is also very convenient. Line management was very good for popular panels (I am not sure how autographs lines were handled. I am kind of sorry I didn't scout that out this year). I went to In This Corner of the World and the Gurren Lagann 10th Anniversary event on Saturday. Getting into each was stress free and they both were excellent. So while I feel I didn't do a lot this year I did highly enjoy what I did end up doing. I loved all the great Japanese food options at the con itself. The seating area and the entire food court is great. And now with the bag checks it's nice that you don't have to leave the con during the day for a good meal.

    You have to log into the members area to get the tracking number. It is not going to be emailed to you.

    Actually comparing it to last year the lanyard type is the same but the hole in the badge is different. The hole is too small. I ended up giving up and using my Crunchy Roll lanyard which I got at Otakon a couple years ago. It was much easier to put on.

    Got mine today, I love the design this year. However the lanyards are the absolute worst. I can't get the badge on and I am terrified I am going to break it trying.

    My tracking was finally updated, whew was getting nervous. It sounds like it should be delivered today or tomorrow. But if it is delivered today and I have to sign for it I should be able to pick it up from the PO tomorrow.

    I'm in Philly, PA and I just rec'd my notice from the post office, going after work to pick them up. I am in Phila too and I still have no tracking number. I don't know maybe it will be delivered today, although I won't be home to sign for it. I also think the July 4th Holiday excuse is ridiculous.I mailed something to a friend in Michigan through regular mail on July 3rd and she got it Monday.

    Still have no badge or tracking number
  9. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Well I am not feeling well & taking today off. Maybe I will get lucky and it will be delivered today.
  10. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    If we don't have to sign that would be fantastic. I am not home to sign & have to go out of my way to pick up packages.
  11. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Will those people get priority in line? I also hope they arrive well before the day before the con. I am not home to sign for my badge so I have to find the time to pick it up at the post-office.

    I expected it to be sometime after AX. Everything slows down a bit around AX.

    I think the Yoko Kanno/TM Revolution autograph line would be best. They were both extremely popular guests and the line was well organized. Of course in that situation you probably did have less people because people had to choose between them. A regular autograph line in that small area would be complete chaos. I guess I better keep that Thursday Hotel room after all.

    Sorry for the double post.

    I just hope we know the plans before July 2nd (that is when I have to make room changes with Experient) I want to know if I need my Thursday room in case I need to line up early on Friday like I did with Yoko Kanno. And I just pray it is not a lottery system.
