  1. The only thing the staff told us to do was to remove the items in our pockets. Also, I didn't need my bags inspected on Friday, but had to do it on Saturday. Personally, the Convention Center needs to do one of the following to avoid this confusion: Fully commit to the bag check and have everyone be inspected (which I'm against, as that will only slow down the lines). Have a device that can have bags checks without needed to be inspected. Drop the bag check all together. I did see some staff members use the fans when directing people to the Dealers Hall and Artist Alle
  2. WHAT I LIKED: Metro actually serving as an alternative to staying at a hotel (especially with the mess going on at my usual hotel). Being on the Green Line, getting to and from the convention is actually very easy, cheap on weeknights and weekends, and outside of Saturday night (partially due to me accidentally taking the wrong train) wasn't too much of a problem. The only issue is having to leave Otakon before 11:00PM, as someone carpools me home, but given how I usually don't do the 18+ stuff, it wasn't that big of a problem. While there's still some room for improvement (i.e. st
  3. Meanwhile, if I do go to Otakon next week, I'll likely be taking the train (as I live near the Green Line) instead of staying in a hotel? BTW, did the Renaissance/Westin sell out already, or is that room block still being set up?
  4. Adding to the list: Food Change of clothes Soap Wild Bill mug
  5. Reading that thread title, the first thing that came to mind was the recent Animaniacs parody of the Thundercats OP.

  7. If I was seen without a mask during the con, it was mostly because I was either eating or drinking something. Outside of that, I tried to keep my mask on whenever possible while at the con. As for me: THE GOOD: The simple fact that Otakon is able to get a convention done this year (especially at a period where the delta variant of COVID is causing problems in other regions in the United States) and that people are willing to attend the convention is enough for a good, especially considering how busy I was Saturday in terms of the panels and events I attended (with me only missin
  8. Same thing here. Unless I'm at my office at work, eating, or visiting family, I keep the mask on whenever I go places.
  9. I'm confused here. While I can understand wearing it in the hotel lobby (and traveling to and from my room), does this mean I need to wear a mask when I'm in my hotel room as well?
  10. I feel that a number of factors have contributed to this, including many major anime companies leaving the American market (i.e. Bandai and Geneon), most companies announcing their licenses when the new anime season starts, and how Otakon is more focused on the fans than being industry-focused like Anime Expo.
  11. The schedule has been updated. The only major ones are AnimEigo and Discotek (with Discotek usually being one of the highlight panels at Otakon each year, especially for old school anime fans). However, there is an "Industry Roundup Panel" on Sunday morning (I'm guessing it will include at least Crunchyroll and Right Stuf, as they have panels at other events the same weekend as Otakon).
  12. Got mine yesterday. As I already have an unused Funimation lanyard, I simply connected the badge to that for now.
  13. The finalists were announced on Monday. Check the Otakon 2021 AMV Contest thread for the information.
  14. That isn't surprising. As the first major anime convention since the pandemic, there's still a number of factors going into it that could make some people reluctant to go (in particular, what measures will be enforced to prevent COVID from affecting the con, those who have not yet received their vaccination yet, people living outside the DC area that are uncertain to travel out-of-state at the moment). As such, I can understand how hotels still have rooms available even when the con is a little more than two weeks away.
  15. You're not alone here, as one of the big aspects of the next possible quarantine will be the fact that a number of areas will be restarting school, with most kids being too young to get the vaccine.
