  1. Hi All! I know that Anime-NYC was held about 2 weeks ago. I was so busy at work and other things that I didn't have the time to put down my quick impression of it. This will be short. The Good: I haven't encountered any huge lines this year. Some of the big industry people came back with their huge booths in the Dealer's Room. Got to meet some old friends that I haven't seen in years. Able to go to most of the panels and screenings I wanted to attend. The Bad: Even though having to wear a mask was a policy at the con,
  2. As much as I like to drive, I decided to take the bus when both Katsucon and Otakon first moved to D.C, and later to train, when I saw just how hard and expensive it would be to bring my car over.
  3. Hi All! Like the subject says. It's only about 12 days away as I type this. I'm looking forward to it. This is basically my last convention of the year, so I always try to make the most of it.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yE3A2AfOt1Q&t=1s
  5. That screen is the largest screen in the area (perhaps the world). That "One Piece" ad took the entire top half of it. When you look at the center-left (look like bands), that's where "Good Morning America" is televised. You can also see McDonalds (where I pass by and sometimes eat there before work everyday). That whole hour felt like I was in the "New Year's Eve" crowd. People were chanting "ONE PIECE"! over and over again while the ad played on.
  6. This is how it was (I was there) One Piece Film Red Times Square Takeover - YouTube
  7. I finally got the time to post this here: Times Square Turns Red on October 8 for One Piece Film Red - Interest - Anime News Network It's going to be a great night to be a pirate! Take those once in a lifetime cosplay pictures in New York. I might show up is there's no panel going on at NYCC.
  8. Hi All! I see the listings for the exhibitors and panels are live now. For Exhibitors: Bandai-Namco Entertainment Dragon Ball FUNimation Ghibli Good Smiles Katsucon (I really don't know why Otakon and AnimeNEXT don't have a table there) Kinokuniya Books Konami One Piece VIZ Media Panels & Screenings: Bleach-Thousand Year War Premiere Chainsaw Man Dub Panel and Premiere Crunchyroll One Piece Film Red Cast (Both English and Japanese) Panel VIZ Media Panel Like alwa
  9. Speaking of trains, I just made my Amtrak train reservations for next years Otakon. Only cost me $62 round trip (New York to Washington D.C. and back).
  10. I just got my NYCC badge in the mail last night. Now the real waiting begins.
  11. Less than a dozen, out of 40,000. I would consider that's almost insignificant.
  12. So did I, but most of the vendors I interacted with did had their's on like I did. I remember New York Comic Con threw a vendor out last year because they refused to follow the guidelines (wear masks).
  13. I heard (2nd or 3rd hand information), that there were at least 2 vendors in the Dealer's Room caught Covid. Not sure if it was during or right after Otakon. Since the name of those vendors were not disclosed, I will just take it as hearsay.
  14. Here in New York City, they made a huge deal about Anime-NYC last year. A person from Minnesota was tested positive when he got home from the con. My supervisor from work broke the news to me and I had myself tested that very night. Came clean. Anyway, it turned out that it was only him and half of the other people that he was hanging out with were the only ones that were affected.
  15. Hi All! I'm just asking this particular question because people back home are asking me. People I know are still afraid of going back to cons because of it. I personally had myself tested 2 days after the con (tested negative), before I went back to work. I did the same thing when I attended New York Comic Con and Anime-NYC last year. Same results. I guess I've been pretty lucky all this time. I've been vaccinated and I always wear my mask when I take public transportation (including on the Amtrak train going to Washington and back).
  16. I still log into the NYAF forum (it still around), just to check. I think I'm the only live person who still post there just for fun. Other con forums I used to be active was from I-CON, Katsucon, and AnimeNEXT, no longer have their forums. I miss the interaction that I had with everyone else. It felt more like being part of an extended family then just being a member of a generic message board. That's the way I kind of feel about this forum.
  17. WOW! First off, I just can't think of anything to say on what you went through. I do understand, believe me, I know. God bless you for your strength.
  18. Something similar I believe happened at Otakon'95 as well. This was the year when was at the "Scanticon" on Labor Day weekend. I heard there was a wedding reception going on somewhere else in that complex and some of Otakon's cos playing attendees kind of crash the party.
  19. It looks like it's finally fixed (since I don't get a safety alert anymore when I log in the forum).
  20. I'm getting the same thing. Hope they fix it soon.
  21. I don't know how people are going to take this, but I was at that panel and these individuals did made me cringe when they went over the top like that. I don't know if these individuals was just trolling, or they just wanted to gain attention in the worst possible way. Well they got the attention they wanted, both good and bad.
  22. It's kind of ironic that next year's theme's is about trains and I manage to make my hotel reservation while I was waiting for my train home.
  23. The Good: I think I was pretty lucky that I never had to wait too long on lines this entire weekend I guess I was just showing up before the masses. Got to see some of my friends from the industry (who came to the con). Attended most of the panels I wanted to attend (especially the Discotek Panel). Video game room has some games I never seen before. Most people I've seen were wearing their masks at all times. Water, water everywhere! The Bad: Videos in the screening rooms that were "overrated", meaning all videos that was like at least rated 15+,
