  1. Hello Gaspar. I know I am sending out of the blue here but you helped me with advice way back for Anime Boston advice. I am returning to Otakon this year. Wondering if the Renaissance on 9th street is an ok hotel or its better to stay at the Marquis. Have you stayed at Renaissance? is it handy to eating places> I hear they are on 7ht street. Or is it better because of weather to stay at the Marquis?

    Also some controversy brewing over Funimation wanting people to pr she their Fairytale DVD in order to have a chance of one of 50 people to get a cast autograph. You think this is what they are talking about of willl people have a chance to autograph with them without buying the $63 DVD?

    Anime Convention Concept A Western One?

    ...Not quite what I meant, but okay.

    Anime Convention Concept A Western One?

    Yeah... I really can't see legit "Western-style" anime cons popping up in Japan... it seems too meta/too redundant since anime in Japan is basically a regular TV show, and celebrating a TV show seems silly IMO...

    Anime Convention Concept A Western One?

    Hey guys, so someone I talk to says he might not do Otakon anymore past this year due to him having the opportunity of moving across the country to Washington State, and someone in that group chat we're in on FaceBook said for him to move to Japan to attend anime conventions there to spite us all... Is convention culture as strong in Japan as it is in other countries/continents like North America and Europe? To my knowledge anime is so intertwined into the general pop culture in Japan that having a convention for a general TV show genre for them would be overly exaggerated, don't you guys think? Also to my knowledge the only "convention" like things that happen are Comiket (Comic Market) twice a year, the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair, as well as C3AFA Tokyo, which are convention-like events, but to me it doesn't seem to represent what we in the Western world depict as a true anime convention... This is all speculation on my part really since I've never been to Japan in general, but what are your guys' thoughts?

    Anime Central (ACen) 2019 Roll Call!

    Who here is attending Anime Central 2019 (ACen) with me this year in the lovely Chicagoland area (Rosemont, IL) ? If you are do this: Name: Cosplay you'll be wearing: Day arriving: I'll start it off. Name: Gaspar / Shiggitay Cosplay you'll be wearing: I'll be alternating between my Senbonzakura Miku GB and my Street Pop Miku GB throughout the weekend... There's no way I can have something new in 2 weeks' time... Day arriving: Thursday, but at like 4pm due to travel from Baltimore via road trip with friends. Yay for the upcoming ~15h ride... We should meet up. My schedule of events (panels etc.) is pretty light this year, so we should be able to hang out!
