    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    I'd love to see Goose House as a musical guest. Not sure how easy it would be to rope them in but it would be an awesome experience.
  2. I can't agree with you more. I heard so many people complaining that "it was a waste." Do you want more thorough and longer checks for next year? The WEWCC staff handled it wonderfully.
  3. Good: Massive space, digital signs and great egress and crowd logistics made getting to panels and events really easy. We did more this year than ever before. The Alchemy and Japanese Mythology panels were very well done. I also love having Kyle Hebert do his geek talk at 2pm on Sunday when everyone is about to suffer post-con depression. Its a nice way to end the weekend. The Red Coats- no not the British type but the WEWCC staff were, for the most part, informative, pleasant, loud and really seemed to know how to handle large crowd logistics. The Ota-Museum staff. If you wandered into that corner of the con you found friendly older staffers who regaled you with stories of cons past in an interesting setting. Kind of a cool, out of the way place. Jim Vowles- thanks as always for being patient and informative when people bombard you with questions. Aun & Hide- a truly wonderful performance that did not get the attendance it deserved. Bad: The Friday pre-reg line snafu. Thankfully the staffers responded pretty quickly after we told them. Voice Actors After Dark- didn't seem as well MC'd or funny as in years past and seemed to always go into activism related topics. Aun & Hide concert- I was saddened by the lack of attendance. There were only about 150 or so people in the giant ballroom for what was an amazing performance. It seems a lot of the traditional Japanese cultural events/panels get low attendance. Capital City Budokai was lightly attended also. Ugly: The sound mixing at the TMR/JAM project concert. I thought my ears were going to bleed from the incredibly high, static and "trebly" sound. I understand Otakon staff have little control over A/V especially when it comes to featured musical guests but there were quite a few people covering their ears from the painful volume. We actually left halfway through.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Mine came in this afternoon. Thanks Otakon for making this a smooth and painless process. I'm liking the clear plastic badges this year. They feel "official"

    There's bound to be a few hiccups here and there since it's a new system. Otakon does a lot better job with this sort of thing than most other cons that's for sure.

    I concur. It's been years since Steve Blum was at Otakon and I've never seen Lex Lang. On a side note, Origa coming to Yomacon was a flop- apparently the TSA wouldn't let her into good old 'MURICA so she had to live stream her concert from across the Great Lakes in Canada. 'MURICA. That means Otakon should try for her....

    See this response earlier in the thread (bolding is mine for emphasis): Origa appeared at Anime Boston last year, and now Youmacon this year. So given the above quote from alabaster, I'd say that makes an Otakon appearance less likely, given their general policy towards musical guests. I figured but it's worth a shot. A pity they JUST announced her for Youmacon, considering I blew nearly $300.00 on Nekocon, hotels etc. which is the week after. Oh well. Guess my buddy will have to take really nice videos on his iPad.....

    SO OTAKON...... Youmacon managed to get Origa to appear this year.....any reason that the second largest anime convention in the USA can't get her?
