  1. But... thats not too bad assuming you have 16 people? 300$ a person or so?
  2. Not sure if its con-related, or a fear of going to the dentist later in July, but has anyone else ever dreamed of your teeth falling out? I did have a dream that my seat on my flight got double booked and I got moved to First class because they flight was full. Then when I got to my seat the person sitting next to me was Kitagawa Keiko. We talked about stuff and I found out she was going to Otakon! haha... Then I woke up. Fear of flight problems + Otakon ftw
  3. No more missing the bus dreams for me, but last night I dreamed I was being chased by a bunch or Godzilla cosplayers. -.- The setting looked like the shopping district in Kobe that I go to though... lol Creepy dream. Maybe I am thinking about a few years back someone cosplayed as Godzilla and made a really awesome costume. I remember him dancing near the DJ tables that were set up near the Dealer's room Entrance. Anyway, it was creepy.
  4. I have been dreaming about missing a bus. I guess thats my subconscience telling me to reserve my bus ticket to the airport. -.- Other than that I have been sleeping rather well despite the overwhelming 150% humidity + 38 degree heat.
  5. the pre-reg line is insanely long. you'll probably do an anime-fall over when you see it. however it does move very quickly. Last year I got in line around 6pm and waited 30-45mins..... felt like 15mins because I was entertained by all the cosplays walking by - and by this shirtless guy swinging a glowstick around for no reason
  6. -Personal Statistics- Name (First name or Alias):: Jon or Jonathan Age:: 26 Male or Fe male:: Male Do you need sleep at a con? Usually eventually, although I have become somewhat of an ensomniac lately. I imagine I will sleep fine after my flight though. -.- Drink or sm oke:: Drink when the feeling arises or I'm surrounded by tastey drinks. HATE sm oking. Tell us about yourself:: Uh what to say... I love games. I love biking and running, although this is a recent development. I love Japan; history, culture (Both old and new), language, food, and most of the lifestyle. I graduat
  7. I'm risking the wrath of the moderators for veering so far off topic, but I'm older than most of them and don't give a flying dogfish what they think for the most part, so.... If Mr. Blinker is asking about Duvel or Delirium Tremens, he knows what he's asking about, and Dogfish Head beers would be an interesting distraction, but a detour from what he really wants. (Yo, Blinker, how about Delirium Noel, or Delirium Nocturnem? Or Cantillon, or Fantome, or Westmalle, or Chimay, or Affligem, or Corsendonk, or Kwak, or de Koninck, or Dupont, or......) There are hardcore beer fans who
  8. At 7-10pm? Hmm must have changed some then. Maybe three years ago, there was no line towards the end of the night. Hoping I can get there and get in line to get my pass, while also being able to get pizza and see a movie. ;p
  9. Hmm... Lets see, when I can catch them; Saki Valkyria Chronicles Chrome Shelled Regios クロスゲーム (Cross Game) - Actually really enjoying this one. . . -.- Shangri-La K-ON Phantom - Requiem for the Phantom Guin Saga Tears to Tiara Asura Cryin Pandora Hearts Tayutama Some other randoms...
  10. Hmm... As far as I know for my group its Me My 2 Best Friends One of their Fiances The same ones little brother Another good friend his fiance and her annoying little brother Ugh... annoying little brothers... -.- I am hoping to meet a lot of people though!
  11. I wouldn't say that most people "have" to take off for it. This is a country where plenty of people (unfortunately) work on holidays regularly, and plenty are unable to take holidays, especially people who are relatively junior at their companies. It really depends on the industry. Business is slower in the summer, but in general, it runs fairly normally, unlike Golden Week. My company discourages us from all taking vacation at the same time, especially in summer, and I didn't take a summer holiday last year. My secretary asked my company's travel agent regarding extra charges for
  12. I am aware there are no "official" long holidays in Japan during the summer, and even Obon is not a National Holiday, most people have to take off for it, including teac hers. Unfortunately there are three times where travel is "capable" by the majority of the Japanese public. One is obviously Golden Week, another is New Years, and the last is in the summer months of July and August. Prices for traveling around these times spi kes considerably compared to "off" times. For example I can fly home for Thank sgiving for 800$ round trip and flying home around the 20th of December is about 1000$ che
  13. Anyone know someplace that sells bottled, unsweetened teas? -.- In Japan, you have one door in the konbini as cold canned coffe/coke like drinks/low cal drinks. Then the entire door next to that one is filled with various types of tea, all unsweetened but very delicious. I know I went to most of the konbini's around my home town during Christmas and couldn't find anything similar. I am thinking I will have to bring my own teabags and make tea then chill it some how....
  14. There's only two types of Yaoi. One type has a great story and has depth. Basically to the point where you could take out the hom osexual romance and it'd still be a great anime. Then the other is where the whole plot and draw to the story is from the boy on boy action. Typically made specifically for fangirls.
  15. I may be wandering about on Saturday as Kyon. Nothing special though... just normal boring Kyon... I was going to do Takasu Ryuji from Toradora! but... I didn't think many people would know him. ;p
