  1. Haha no I didn't attend Ota Vegas at all, but maybe I "met" you at PanelOps? Not sure. And I echo the exhausted part when at a con, though for different reasons, but still.
  2. New School Term is what that roughly translates to, but it's a JRock band... I see.
  3. While all that is good and dandy in theory, it'd be super hard to enforce. I'm ofc not staff, but I just think it'd be irresponsible to run an Ota this year, as much as I want it to happen. I guess we'll see how it all turns out closer to the con.. We're still in March with many months to go. Anyway, yeah.. AB not happening this year was a bummer... It didn't hit me as hard as it did last year (when I was a literal emotional wreck for no rational reason), but still a c-c-combo breaker. I'd been going since 2009 nonstop, so tradition breaker too...
  4. I mean you did meet them outside the confines of Otakon... I'd say that 100% counts haha.
  5. If Otakon or any con for that matter this year can happen safely, even if at reduced capacity, it'd be a miracle. I'd like to attend at least AnimeNYC in November, when it'll be almost "sure" that we'd have reached "herd immunity" by then (the 70-85% needed for that will happen and will be theoretically achieved by late summer or so I've heard analysts predict). I'm not yet giving up hope, but I'm being cautiously optimistically as I have been since we've finally started to suppress this bastardass virus. Hopefully by the summer we'll have a better idea as Kelly said what'll happen. I really h
  6. I've seen Scandal at ACen before... They're good!
  7. I don't think I've personally met you, not at least realizing it was you. haha.
  8. Yup and it was a pleasure meeting you Danny (Or do you prefer Daniel?). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. As much as I'd love to have Otakon this year I think it'd be best to have your expectations low, and just plan for 2022. Dr. Fauci is hoping that by the fall 85% of the population in the US is going to be vaccinated, and only then some sense of normalcy can return, but we'll just have to wait and see. There's a similar debate going on about Anime Boston on FaceBook in group Anime Boston Social (if not elsewhere as well). It's yet to be cancelled, but there would have been pre-reg announcements and hotel block releases/other forms of promotion by now if it was a sure thing to happen in 2021...
  10. Sal Amadeo makes great content! I just watched some of his Baltimore expedition stuff and being that we've all been Baltimore quite a bit when Otakon was there I do recognize quite a bit of what he was filming there.
  11. I started attending Otakon in 2009, so I never had the chance to collect all the t-shirts from the Ota Merch Booth in the Dealer's Room each year. I decided to check eBay for them (after asking Jim about the possibility of getting them reprinted for sale) and here's what I found: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=otakon T Shirt&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=0&_odkw=otakon#item3d9a574fe5 I know some of you here have been attending Otakon waaaaay longer than I have and I wonder if y'all have any of these shirts or other r
  12. Thank you for that thorough answer, Jim. I appreciate it and I'll look out for the odd shirt up on eBay.
