  1. Hi! You're right. Anime North falls under the "Major conventions" category, but it's in Canada, and I was leaning more on conventions in the US. Anyway, it seems like May is the outer fringe of dates when the cancellations or postponements of cons and events are taking place. I haven't seen or heard of any cons cancelling or postponing from June on yet.
  2. Well, it's a good thing that there's a supermarket right across the street from me. I was just there a few minutes ago and I'm already seeing people buying whatever food and toiletries they can get their hands on (wearing latex gloves of course). It also seems like I'm the only one who in my department that lives almost at the heart of Manhattan (Chelsea), I'm getting phone calls from friends and former coworkers as far away as Florida asking me what's going on.
  3. Another major one... Anime Central - Cancelled https://www.acen.org/cancellation-of-anime-central-2020/
  4. Well people, my job actually gave me a "furlough" until March 30th technically. I had to take my job's phone with my own phone so I can be reached if I have to come back sooner. Meanwhile, our mayor is considering having a "shelter in place" policy for the entire city. Anyway, I'm going to take this time to finish up certain things and also, I've been watching "Chaika The Coffin Princess" Blu-Ray from time to time. Now I can finish it.
  5. Hi people! I thought we should have a thread listing of cons that are either postponed or cancelled because of this health emergency we're having here in our country. Anime Boston - Cancelled https://www.animeboston.com/news/article/817 Sakura-Con - Cancelled http://sakuracon.org/ A-Con 31 - Postponed https://www.a-kon.com/
  6. Well, there goes one "major" con down.
  7. Hi All! While this is a very "touchy" subject (quick, sanitize the keyboard), it's coming to the point that a lot of major venues are closed and events are either being postponed or cancel because of this Corona virus. The New York International Auto Show at the Javis was already postponed until August, for example. Also, some companies are already forcing some of their staff to work at home or forcing staff to "take an early vacation". Used up your vacation and/or sick time? Take an unpaid furlough. I already seen a noticeable reduction in crowds here in NYC Times Square area this past Friday. Anyway, I'm just curious, if it comes to the point that this will happen wherever you work, besides having extra stocks of food, medicine and toiletries, what anime you've been meaning to binge-watch once you have the time?
  8. I think I'm one of the few left here remember when Otakon used to go from hotel to hotel before it settled at a convention center. Honestly, I kind of miss the old days when taking a break from the con was just a simple elevator ride to the floor where my room was. The con had that intimate feel to it for both guests and attendees alike. All that changed dramatically when the con started to get stuffed to the seams when it still used only the hotels. I had my doubts when it moved to the BCC, but having all that extra elbow room was real nice, until the attendance numbers started to explode, especially from the "not so nice" new generation of attendees. Anyway, I';m going off topic here, so let me just say that the BCC haven't changed, but the rest of the Inner Harbor area did, and not exactly for the better. I also had my doubts about the WEWCC the same way I did when the con settled at the BCC, but now I'm getting used to the surrounding area. I don't know about anyone else, but I really don't think Otakon will get any better if it did move back.
  9. I remember there was a DVD of L'Arc En Ciel available. https://www.amazon.com/LArc-en-Ciel-Live-LArc-En-Ciel/dp/B0009GX2E6
  10. I remember you were in a big hurry to go home. I even walked with you to Penn Station then we went our separate ways.
  11. I went to the 2014, 2016, and 2018 one. We briefly met up at the end of the 2018 show.
  12. Still thinking about it. I guess it will depend on my finances next year.
  13. 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.
