  1. AnimeNYC is likely waiting on some final confirmations etc before they inevitably cancel as well. I'd feel it to be VERY irresponsible to run the con during this whole thing... Sure NYC is said to be in better shape now but who's to say that people from OUTSIDE NYC from HOTSPOT areas/states won't try and attend should they for some ungodly reason not cancel? That's my concern. I really hope Left Field Media (LFM) is weight all possibilities and scenarios. They seem like a good group of people that'll do things for the better good and not just for their wallets, but I really hope they do the right thing.
  2. Yeah online conventions I feel work best when it's literally streamed, and the streamer pulls ppl in through Discord calls and other means of participation like that. Just showing anime eps on stream (which I'm 99% sure is illegal unless it's Funimation / Sentai / Discotek etc doing it with their own content) isn't anything special and unique to most... I mean I have a Plex server with MANY MANY anime series and movies that I can just sit at home (or anywhere really) and watch... I don't even really sit in IRL con video rooms much for that reason. I had wanted to do a panel on music rhythm games for OtaOnline 2020 on Aug 1, but I didn't have time to really put it together in time... I might do the same panel IRL at a con in 2021 or beyond, but I'd have to work some things out to make it work properly. But all in all, online con aren't for me as it defies the purpose of a con... which is gathering with fellow otaku in person and nerding out about otaku culture and whatnot... something online cons in my view cannot do.
  3. Haha yeah! Agreed... I've never like the concept of "online cons". While I understand their appeal/purpose, I just can't get behind it.
  4. Interesting analysis. Yeah I'm with you that it's more of a "telethon" than a traditional con. I didn't watch any of it not because I didn't want to, but because I forgot.. haha. My sleep schedule is so messed up that I was up all night (like I will be again tonight likely since I just woke up.. oof) that I wouldn't have been able to "attend". I really hope it's safe to attend cons in person again ASAP in 2021 (hopefully by the end of January for MaGFest? Please?). This year sucked and we need some redemption. lol.
  5. There's been conflicting info about whether or not it'll play PS4 games from what I've seen.. I guess we'll have to see...
  6. I won't be getting a PS5 until there's a Project Diva for it.
  7. Yeah I heard that as well, but let's see what happens. If it runs I'll try and go... If it gets cancelled? Then that's okay too.
  8. I'm hoping the same to happen with AnimeNYC, but yeah let's see.
  9. Here're my annual requests for: Seiyuu: The (5) original Sailor Moon Sailor Senshi Seiyuu (or as many as possible / who's available, but at least the OG 5 would frickin' LEGENDARY): Mitsuishi Kotono (Tsukino Usagi/Sailor Moon) Hisakawa Aya (Mizuno Ami/Sailor Mercury) Tomizawa Michie (Hino Rei/Sailor Mars) Shinohara Emi (Kino Makoto/Sailor Jupiter) Fukami Rica (Aino Minako/Sailor Venus) Seeing the voices of Usagi and Rei on-panel stage performing their famous to the series tongue fights... That'd be too funny. Any other kind of in-character dialogue between the characters would be awesome too, and my Otaku self would be so happy! Musical Guest: The awesome, the one... the ONLY... DO AS INFINITY! I've been wanting to see them live for ages. I almost got a chance to go to Japan to see them, but that never happened. They were here in the US at San Japan in San Antonio, TX last year, but that's not a con I can get to easily. Please bring them to Otakon 2021 or some year soon!!
  10. Yeah seriously... It'll be interesting having a Miku Expo concert happening on an odd numbered year... it's usually every other even numbered year...
  11. Those hotels should be added late June/early July, but there's no way of telling for sure... Last week's mis-announcement didn't effect the Marquis and others because even then they weren't available.
  12. Me too! I actually booked at the Renaissance and the Embassy, though I'm more leaning towards the Embassy cuz it's a suite room. If the Residence Inn gets added on Monday I'mma book that as well.
  13. Holy crap.. I just had a mini heart attack, knowing that it'd be live a week from today... and not today. >_>
