    Most looking forward to thing at Otakon 2019?

    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.
  2. I'll believe it when I see it. High-speed rail isn't particularly profitable in the US and the logistics would be a nightmare.

    Nekocon 2018 Feedback

    Anyone get to go to Nekocon in Hampton, VA this past weekend? We had a lot of fun and I FINALLY got to see Eric Stuart at a con and got a CD signed by him. The Cells at Work photoshoot was a ton of fun as we formed a parade that marched to the theme song through the entire convention center. Dealer's room merch was decent although I felt the artist's room was down in size this year. It seemed that the attendance was down from last year and I was disappointed at the number of panels and anime showings that were cancelled. (I think about half of the scheduled anime viewings were cancelled and replaced by something else.) What did you think? Nekocon hasn't had a forum for a number of years now so I figured here's as good a place as any!

    How was your hotel?

    I've noticed that incidental deposits seem to vary from hotel to hotel. The Holiday Inn Express that we stay at during Nekocon merely asks for a credit card in case of damages but does not apply any charges to your account. However we stayed at a LaQuinta a few weeks back that asked for a $250 deposit for incidentals that took 2 weeks to reimburse.

    How was your hotel?

    The Renaissance was good as usual although the parking costs nearly killed me... However, I am hopeful that the change in dates for next year means we will miss the formal ball/dance held on Saturday night in the Renaissance. Having drunks scream racial epithets and profanities in the hallway at 3am is a wonderful way to interrupt a good night's sleep, especially with an infant in the room.
  6. Kira Buckland, Alexis Tipton and Jamie Marchi for dub VAs. For the musical guest I'd love Goose House. Not sure how feasible that is though....

    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.

    Guest Request: 2015

    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....

    Guest Request: 2015

    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?
