  1. I would avoid it, its known for being a skethy hotel overall, in the past few years there have been reports of break ins and human trafficking there.
  2. Saw the news over the weekend on twitter and otakon FB.
  3. I forgot two more for The Bad: -During photoshoots in the video game hall, it was almost impossible to hear the organizer calling for characters unless you were standing right by her. There was music blasting nearby and the mic she had barely had any volume to it. - Who let Ministry of Otaku into the building?
  4. On an Otakon FB group I'm already seeing people reporting positive covid results. I did come wearing a mask, while I get they can't require masks forever I agree it was a mistake to drop vax requirements.
  5. The Good: Barely any lines getting in to the con! I honestly thought we had less attendance this year due to how less clogged it felt. Spanish voice actors - having grown up in Central America and watching spanish dubs, this was very nostalgic for me! T shirt cannon! The Bad: Panels felt...lacking in content this year. I can't remember the last time I went so long between panels that interested me. Some popular panels being crammed into smaller rooms. Rumors of pickpockets in the dealer's room/artist alley? The Ugly: Personal one for me, I believe
  6. I don't usually buy con food but on Saturday last year I didn't dare leave the building due to the lines and risk being stuck outside so I ended up eating a $15 sandwich lol. It was good at least.
  7. Well that can't happen, he's going to be at Rhode Island Anime Con which is the same weekend as Otakon.
  8. They should keep the vaccine mandate at least. Clearly it didn't hurt attendance numbers at all.
  9. It was mandated at MagFest just fine and most pople I saw were complying.
  10. Saw quite a few maskless vendors the times I was in the DR.
  11. As far as I can remember, yes.
  12. It was fun following this while it happened: https://www.gaming.net/otakon-2022-and-the-saga-of-the-stolen-ms-hina-cutout/

  14. I always consider shocked passerby to be part of the fun.
  15. Is the Eaton a new hotel? I don't recall seeing it last year.
  16. Didn't make it to a ton of panels this year because reasons, but here's my feedback for some: Manly Battleships: Gameshow Impossibru at the AMV theater was a hoot and fun from start to finish. True History of 4kids: Had the opposite problem of some other panels - panel finished extra early (like around 30 mins early) mainly due to the panelist just talking extra fast and seemingly a shortage of material. Afterlife in Anime: Was expecting more of a discussion of isekai but it was more about Buddhism and its views on the afterlife. An interesting subject on its own, but not what
  17. Was a panelist this year, can confirm we had to go and get our ribbons friday morning though we got badges on thursday. Maybe I just got there early but there were approx 10 people checking in when we got there.
  18. I'll miss it if it goes, but yeah its not the hive of activity it onc was.
