  1. Thanks to everyone for coming by!
  2. I feel you! Zenkaikon and AnimeNext were my next ones as well and I'm bummed they couldn't take place but completely understand its because they want to keep us safe. I'm prepared either way for whether or not Otakon happens. We just got to follow things day by day and stay positive, while taking care of ourselves and staying safe.
  3. It's a Jessie :3

  4. I'm looking forward to OI again this year =). I've done it twice and it was fun. I obviously won't be trying for it this year, but to all of you who do try out when it comes time for that, good luck to you and practice, practice, practice! As for karaoke tracks with Jpop/Jrock, I agree there are a bunch of good songs but no karaoke track for them. Like someone suggested you can try using Audacity to mute the vocals.
  5. Nice topic! I'm currently taking my third semester of Japanese (I already took Elementary Japanese I and II, but I'm taking II again so I can pass III in the fall). Japanese IS hard but it's a fun language. わたしはアマンダさんです. よろしくおねがいします. はたしはかわいくてげんきです. (I think I said that right. I'm still new to the adjectives and such...grammar is so much fun).
  6. I've usually gone with friends to the pre-reg line but waitied for maybe 4 hours. We did go earlier the one year but it was too hot so we didn't do it again. And last year I gophered so I didn't have to stand in the line, yay. It's fun to drive by and see everyone in line though when you first get into town.
  7. 1-3) I don't think it matters - ravers will go where the rave is, moving it to the hilton (which is RIGHT next to the con center) won't matter. As long as you advertise where it's going to be prior to the event and have a map for how to get there, it won't matter whether it's in the convention center lobby or on the roof of a nearby hotel. >_<
  8. This sounds awesome and will benefit a lot of people .
  9. Probably some close friends (4 or 5 of them maybe).
  10. My community college has an anime club (that I actually founded lol). http://www.bucks.edu/~anime We have a message board if you want to spread the word about your club =).
  11. I'd love for him to come back since Otakon 03 was the con my mom said no to going to (BAAF 03 ended up being my first con instead, huh?) and I couldn't see him =( lol. His video greeting was so cute. It made me smile, lol.
  12. Mine were: -Seeing Kappei Yamaguchi -Otakon opening animation -Helping out at pre-reg on Friday morning -having a staffer call me a "super gofer" at the otacafe when I was helping out -a couple con attendees coming up and asking me about the con I run/ran (its in the process of coming back), that really touched me. -Watching the masquerade, I haven't sat and watched a masquerade for a while.
  13. I stayed in two hotels so... Place I stayed: Sheraton (formerly Wyndham) Number of people in room: 1 Hotel Staff: Nice! I liked how the one staffer welcome me to the hotel and walked me to check in. Walk to the con center: 5 mins at most, maybe. The Good: -THE BEDS=AWESOME. Sheraton beds are so comfy. I had a king bed, it was amazing. -The tvs, I loved the TV. I like that a lot of hotels are switching over to flatscreens. -Being on the third floor. The Bad: -Still feels like the Wyndham otherwise. Would you stay there again? Maybe, if I had to. I ended
  14. As far as I know, no. I know they haven't in the past.
  15. I got a room for Thurs at the Days Inn, then a room at the Hilton for Fri-Sun since I really want to stay there. I am excited, oh yes.
  16. I parked in the lot across from the Sheraton (underground lot) from Thurs-Sun and it cost me $59 =(.
  17. My friends tried the Hilton and it doesn't show up on Otakon's site and it says it's booked through their website as well. Geez did rooms go that quick already?
  18. Yea I noticed Madhouse wasn't mentioned in the short either. It was amazing, I loved the "crab statue" and "flying manhole cover" references. Awesome job!
  19. Otacafe was awesome =D! I especially had fun gophering at it. I learned a lot and it was cool to hear all the amazing talent that was at the con. I'm happy I got to sing "Plenty of Grit" from Slayers Revolution (go watch it...NOW lol) and I'm glad those of us who got up to sing had a blast. And those of you who came to watch, thanks for watching!! Now I'm sad I can't do karaoke until another con =(.
  20. Seriously, thank you to staff. You guys and gals all did an amazing job and Otakon would NOT be possible without you. I am a first time gofer and gophering for 20 hours has me exhausted, but I can imagine the staff is even MORE exhausted, lol. I had a lot of fun gophering, especially helping out behind pre-reg and helping out in the Otacafe. Thank you for letting me be a gofer and being able to help out =). Keep up the fantastic job folks, we are all so thankful for all you do!!!!
  21. I'm more worried now about how mobbed places will be getting food since we have Otakon and there's a baseball game this weekend too right? I bought snacks and some food so I don't starve but I guess the best thing to do is watch the times you decide to go get food.
