    [Otakon News]Otakon 2020 Hotel Block Now Open

    No. I was trying to reserve the Comfort Inn. At first it was only allowing me to have July 30 to August 2. Tried to change it numerous times to July 31 to August 3 only to keep defaulting on the previous dates no matter what I did. Eventually, I left it that way so I can change it later. After a few more times within the same day, I finally was able to change the date, only to show that I was now "Wait-Listed".

    I finally did, but now it has me as "Wait-listed".

    New York Comic Con Oct 3 - 6, 2019. Any one here going?

    Hi All! NYCC has come and gone. I did enjoy myself on what they had on this year, but I also felt a bit off this year. I thought it was con-fatigue at first, but I realized that I was also doing things for others, and was waiting for others that actually impeded some of the things I really wanted to do. Oh well, live and learn... Anyway, I manage to attend most of the panels that I wanted to attend. I went to the Crunchyroll, FUNImation, and VIZ Media panel and it did what I expected them to do. But I also went to the "Steven Universe" panel which was the first and best panel I had attended at the con. There were some decent costumes that I've seen from both anime and movies/comics, but the one that caught my eye was this woman who cosplayed as Eclipsa from "Star vs The Forces of Evil". It's like she stepped out of the screen right into reality. Too bad I couldn't take a decent picture of her. The Anime Fest @ NYCC side was a huge disappointment for me. With the NYCC badge, you were only allowed to stay at the ground floor which was like a big open room. It has somewhat decent display of things but nothing more. Everything else I think was on the second floor and you do need an Ax@NYCC badge which you have to pay extra, to participate. Anime Expo should just stop at this point. I recommend people to save their major anime appetite for Anime-NYC coming at the Javis the very next month. I did manage to have a good time overall. Now I'm just waiting patiently for Anime-NYC and that will be it for cons this year.

    It's not letting me change the date for my room.

    New York Comic Con Oct 3 - 6, 2019. Any one here going?

    Hi All! New York Comic Con is less than 4 days away. I know the anime industry companies will have some presence in the Show Floor. There's Crunchyroll, FUNImation, GKids, Toei Animation, and VIZ Media. I think they will have their own panels (with the exception of GKids and Toei) as well. Hope to see some of you there!
  6. Hi All! I just got my NYCC badge in the mail last night, so I'm going to assume that others are beginning to get their's as well. Also, it's the return of their offshoot "Anime Fest @ NYCC X Anime Expo". I think that part is going to be worst than last year. Last year, you had to buy a separate badge to attend that part and travel via shuttle bus or walk to it's location (was about a little more than a half a mile away from the Javis). This year, it's a lot closer, but it seems like you have to buy a badge for each individual event for Anime Fest @ NYCC x Anime Expo ! Who's bright idea this was? Last year it was almost a disaster. This year it might probably crash and burn! Anyway, it's a good thing that I do enjoy everything else that NYCC has to offer, but I would hold off my anime appetite for Anime NYC that will go on the following month.

    Was there something wrong with the forums?

    Hi everyone! Like the subject says. I was trying to get to the forums these past few days only to get a message something like "It has reached capacity, try again later" when I tried to access it.

    Rate your Hotels

    Hi everyone! While we're waiting for Otakon to officially open their Hotel room blocks for 2020, anybody has anything to say about the hotels and their rooms that they stayed for this year? I'm kind of surprised that no one has made a poll about this yet. It could be in this format: Name of Hotel: Was it part of the official block? Price: Type of room: The Good: The Bad: Final thoughts: I like to hear (and I'm sure Otakon as well), what was everyone's overall experiences in this.

    Badge Mailing?

    This is the first time I heard of this to be honest. I still have all my past Otakon badges, but it's stored deep in one of my closets and I don't want to start hunting for them this close to the convention.
  10. Now there's a name I haven't seen in years.

    The Otakon 2019 Guest Request Thread

    With all due respect Something Clever, Gaspar and Sozuke did nothing wrong. Stop acting like a "wanna-be" mod. The way you're responding to this is no less than trolling.
