    What are you playing?: 2019 Edition!

    Like Gaspar, I still play with "Hatsune Miku Project Diva: Future Tone", on my PS4, I also started to play Atari's "Tempest 4000" more often than not (I really don't have much time playing games, lately).

    Anime NYC 2018 Nov. 16-18, 2018. Anyone here's going?

    You know? For a while I thought I was the only one here who attended Anime-NYC. The bag checks were a pain sometimes but I can understand why it was being done. Fan panels? I think now is a good time for attendees to voice their opinions about this. Earlier this year I asked for video screenings and we got that somewhat. I heard that they will be working with the Javis to get more space the next time around.

    Anime NYC 2018 Nov. 16-18, 2018. Anyone here's going?

    Hi All! Well, Anime-NYC has ended about 3 days ago. I have to say that it was better than AX-NY@NYCC that's for sure. The Good: Lively atmosphere. Seems that most attendees were upbeat. Most Industry panels were all in the same room right behind after another. With exception of 1 room clear, there was 3 Industry panels in a row Friday all in the same room. I didn't have to get up and scoot to another room right after (with the exception of Saturday when I only had to do it one time). Tokyo Attack Japanese Arcade. Enough said. Quality screenings The Bad: Nothing really bad at all. The Ugly: The single most ugliest thing at the con was THE LINES from the initial start on Friday. It looked like the con was caught completely off-guard that Friday morning. So many showed up at once that Friday morning that people were eventually let in a half hour late. They eventually started to get the hang of it as the con went on. Overall, I really did enjoy myself at this con. I just heard last night that the attendance was 36,000! That's extraordinary for a second year con! I think Anime-NYC just became the largest anime con of the east coast beating Otakon in a matter of 2 years! I'm already looking forward for next year.

    I wish I could go to the AniSong Matsuri, but my finances has been extremely tight these past couple of weeks. I paid for my 3 day badge earlier this year, and this, like NYCC and Liberty Anime Con, it's within walking distance where I live, so no extra expenses like hotels, gas, tolls and parking (yeah, I know it sounds like I'm rubbing it in). I see that other cons like AnimeNEXT and Katsukon will have a table at the Dealer's room. I'm surprised Otakon is not present. They did had a table last year but they were a "no-show".

    R.I.P. Stan Lee (1922-2018)

    A legend is gone. I met him on the next to last appearance he made in NYCC in the strangest way: I was using the bathroom at the time. I was fixing myself up when a friend of mine decided to give me a call at that very moment. While I was talking to him, I noticed someone took a quick look inside the bathroom and said it was all clear. I didn't pay attention who went in next after that to use the stall. While still on my phone, I told my friend that he literally caught me with my pants down, and I heard a person giggling in the stall after I said that. I told him I will call right back because I needed both hands to put my belt back on and wash my hands. I heard the person leave the stall and started to wash his hands while I was leaving but still didn't turn around to see who it was. Once I stepped out, I was surrounded by 2 security people asking me where did I came from. A few seconds later I hear someone says "excuse me" right behind me, and I couldn't believe it, it was Stan Lee. I quickly step aside and apologized to him for being in the way. He looked at me and said, "No problem son". Then he put one hand on my shoulder and shook my hand with the other and told me, "I like your wit. Don't ever lose it.". I said "Thank you Mr. Lee", then security quickly whisked him away. Too bad I never got to meet him again. He will be missed.

    Man married to Hatsune Miku?!

    I may love Hatsune Miku, but I wouldn't go this far: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/crazy-in-love-the-japanese-man-married-to-a-hologram/ar-BBPBH15?ocid=spartanntp&pfr=1#image=BBPBH15_1|4
  7. Hi All! I just got my badge for this con in the mail last night. This is it, my final con of the year. I hopefully wish that this will be a better experience than last month's AXNY@NYCC. I mean I did enjoyed the NYCC part, but the AXNY part left me kind of meh. Liberty Anime Con was almost a waste of my time, but that's another topic. So, is anyone else here going? I hope to see some of you there. Take care!
