  1. Good: The guest lineup Richard Epcar's Outtake Panel My panel went better than I expected, I was nervous about 1 AM turnout but it went well. Fan parodies are back! The Marriott Marquis really got its bag-storing in order for guests, got a nice big room to store our luggage in and an orderly system. Pigeon-kun Bad: The ban on bringing in outside food and in some cases water bottles. Protests outside the con because of workers getting screwed over (not by Otakon but the convention center) The Women in Anime panel had quite a number of i
  2. I'm running a panel related to Studio Ghibli on saturday night ("Urban Legends and Studio Ghibli: Fact or Fiction.") Its 18+, just a heads up. Hope you might be interested!
  3. Glad I got the connected hotel this year, also for the fact that my panel got scheduled for midnight on Sat....
  4. Game of Thrones would like a word... Anyways, I went to AnimeJapan in Tokyo in 2018, and while it was more of an anime trade show/fair than a traditional con, it had a lot of the same elements. Cosplayers, industry booths, meeting voice actors, merch for sale, etc. Though the most different thing I noticed was that I didn't see anyone arriving in cosplay to the con, most came with rolling suitcases and changed there. Fandom is a thing anywhere there's pop culture.
  5. Well, I'm suddenly glad I opted for the Thursday pre reg pickup. I hope badges arrive on time, but I'd hate to have this anxiety going on...
  6. I've done Kendo the longest, four years now. I didn't have time for it in the last year or so.

  7. Hey sorry, I just noticed your comment from a few months back on my page (d'oh!).

    Both, I'm interested in a lot of them (like Jeet Kune Do) and I've practiced Kendo Iaido and Aikido.

  8. Why sad? It was a pretty happy ending. They ended up together, amirte?
  9. Inarguably the anime that made me cry the absolute most was Millenium Actress. Also: Naruto: Shippuden. Some character deaths really got me upset (I still am). A lot of other parts are really sad too. Fullmetal Alchemist. Nuff said. Rurouni Kenshin Sakura Cardcaptors - was one of the first series I saw when I was younger and the ending really made me sad.
  10. I've had those dreams quite a bit but they're not usually good - usually I'm at the pre reg line but forgot my ID or pre reg papers. One time though I dreamed Otakon was being held at a school gym and people in cosplay were running laps.
  11. I just finished watching volumes 1 of Claymore, Baccano and Hell Girl. Am interested and looking foward to watching more! I'm also starting to look up Le Chevalier D'Eon epsiodes.
  12. Money is tighter but I made sure to save up specifically for Otakon. Its one of my main hilights each year. Its something to look foward to.
  13. I'll be going as TenTen from Naruto. Wasn't planning on it initially but everyone keeps telling me I look like her so I decided to just do it. I think the costume is cute but I can't believe I'll be putting my hair up in "panda ears." lol At Otakon 06 I went as an ANBU Black Ops, in 07 I went as Ayame (both from Naruto) - you may have seen me handing out ramen noodles. My brother will be going as Enishi from Rurouni Kenshin. He's been Kabuto the two years before this. I briefly considered going as a pregnant Kurenai, but I figured the fake belly could cause mistaken concern
  14. Naruto: Shippuden at the moment.
  15. I forgot one. Dragonball GT. WTF was that? Seriously... Why all the hate for Naruto? It really gets into some serious themes, especially in Shippuden. Disliking a series just because its popular is just as dumb as liking it just because its popular.
  16. I guess it would reduce the crowding, but other than that I say no, don't move it.
  17. The problem with this thread is that people are trashing shows they personally dislike, hardly because of any real reasons like poor storyline or shoddy art. Here's mine: Genma Wars. Just look at one ep. Bad art, wierd as hell storyline and lack of overall direction.
