  1. Cheaper Badges for 2018

    Since it hasn't been mentioned yet, I'm going to bring it up here. While at Katsucon, I did notice Otakon doing some at-con registration here. One of the big things that came out of this: cheaper badges will be offered this year. How it works is like this: outside of Sunday, Day Badges are not being offered. Rather, there's going to be three tiers of badges: The regular badge, which will be offered at regular price; The Saturday and Sunday badge, which will be $70; The Sunday only badge, which will be $40. This is likely going to be good news for those who only plan to attend on either Saturday or Sunday and don't want to pay the full price for just one day.
  2. Hate to ask again

    Early registration took place at Katsucon this year, with going online hopefully by the end of the month.
  3. Your first Otakon

    For me, I went with Azumanga Daioh (my anime club was introduced to the series after Otakon 2002, and it became a regular part of our schedule during 2003).
  4. Your first Otakon

    As my signature suggests, my first year was in 2001. I've heard about the con via an article in the Washington Post, and I attending the convention with an anime club that I was attending at the time. Since this was only my second anime convention period, I was still a newcomer here (i.e. calling it a night on Saturday after the Masquerade rather than checking out the Game Show or fan-parodies, not fully understanding the layout of the convention, fears of getting mugged while walking back to the hotel at night time). However, by the following years, I eventually got the hang of it.
  5. Hotels

    Of course, what also helped the Renaissance from staying up for more than the week is the fact that the current situation for it (i.e. the site only listing single-bedded rooms as available) deters those attendees with larger groups attending the con.
  6. Hotels

    When I booked the room at the Renaissance, I did request for a roll-away bed in case rooms with two beds were not available come the weekend of the con.

    Meanwhile, if we're stuck with one-bed rooms, can you at least ensure that there's plenty of roll-away beds for those rooms with two guests that aren't sharing a bed?
  8. Hotels

    I read about the "one bed option only" on Facebook as well. Trying to figure out the reason for this (not a problem for me, since I can get a roll away bed for my roommate, but I still would prefer two beds with me noting it in the requests). Given how the hotel web site does offer two-bed rooms for that weekend: my guess is the following: 1. The "two bed rooms" are not yet ready to go up on the site. 2. The "one bed" package also included rooms with two beds, with it being listed as "one bed" to deter larger groups.
  9. Hotels

    You guys aren't alone here. Even if Otakon's now closer to me than Anime USA (a con where I spend the day there and then head home at night), that doesn't mean I'm stopping my tradition of getting a hotel room for Otakon weekend.
  10. Hotels

    Personally, I consider the Renaissance to be the Holiday Inn of the DC hotels (as in it being the ideal hotel of choice for those with taller vehicles that can't get into parking garages).
  11. Guest Request: 2015

    Kinda thinking that way too once I read her involvement in that show. If Funi is indeed the one that helped bring Park to Otakon, then they definitely outdid themselves this year with not only her, but also the English voices of Goku and Vegeta (now if only Otakon could have gotten the guests that Japan Expo has in store this year).
  12. Guest Request: 2015

    By next week, do you mean this coming week or the week of 6/7-613?
  13. Guest Request: 2015

    Checking the guests for other cons, it does look like Greg will be a Thursday-only thing (with him spending the weekend at AnimeIowa).
  14. Guest Request: 2015

    Don't worry. Otakon's Japanese guests tend to have some variety (and not all of them are connected to the "main titles" that American anime companies are trying to promote at their cons). Thus, outside of possibly a voice actor, you don't have to worry too much about anymore Japanese guests being connected to Aldnoah
  15. Guest Request: 2015

    It just isn't "waiting for Otakon" season without usual "Guess the Musical Act" contests.
