    Most looking forward to thing at Otakon 2019?

    What's everyone looking forward to the most at this proclaimed/considered to be 25th Anniversary / 26th calendar year Otakon? I'm hoping for some anniversary merch, like make a new hat, since my hat I got at the 20th anniversary con back in 2013 is all beat up, since I've been wearing it every day for the past like 6 years.. lol. Some commemorative stuff like mugs or other things would be cool... Anyone else have anything to add?

    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!

    2019 Hotel Incidentals Reminder

    Hey all! So I was reading through the "How was your hotel?" thread from last year and I saw some people surprised at the fact that at check-in they want $150-200 more than the actual reservation and if you can't successfully get that held on your debit/credit card you cannot check in... This is due to incidental insurance, so if you screw anything up in the room besides normal wear and tear for that weekend, the repairs are covered. The $150-200 usually consists of around $50 per night you have booked for your stay. If you booked the room for yourself only, then I can understand the frustration of not realizing that they need that incidental insurance/not realizing you had to budget for that. Please be aware that such a charge is only a HOLD, and will be released/refunded if nothing warrants that kind of repair in your room. So, I intend this thread to serve as a reminder for everyone to have you / your group budget an additional $200 or so for the incidentals, even if the booking site you're using doesn't mention it, even though they should, but if you're an experienced con-goer/hotel booker you should expect/remember and budget for it.... Thanks for reading, Shiggitay

    Japanese Musical Guest Guessing Contest?

    Will there be the [what I consider to be] traditional Japanese Musical Guest Guessing Contest this year? Previous years it's been a blast trying to guess who's gonna headline the concerts, and I hope this year is no different just because we've settled into DC, slowly closing in on Year 3 this year.

    The 2019 Otakon Goer Roll-Call Thread

    PREFERRED NAME: GasparHOMETOWN: Boston, MA# OF OTAKONS ATTENDED´╗┐: with 2019 included it'll be 11The BONUS ? for 2019: Since 2016 I've been cosplaying a Genderbent Senbonzakura Hatsune Miku from Vocaloid (original female version is my avatar), but starting in 2018 with Anime Boston I've also added a semi-genderbent Street Pop Hatsune Miku (an obscure outfit/module from the Hatsune Miku Project Diva F2nd song "Kagerou Days" or "Heat Haze Days"). I say "semi" because in the PV of the song Miku is technically dressed as guy, but I'll leave that up to your imagination to determine. My SenBon Miku has been misidentified as a "Kawaii M Bison" from Street Fighter, and as hilariously wrong as that is I take that in stride. No one has guessed or even cared about my Street Pop Miku though.... I hereby challenge the Otakon population to guess it correctly, but if you don't, that's okay. Cosplaying obscure versions of characters / obscure characters altogether is also part of the fun.

    The Otakon 2019 Guest Request Thread

    All I did was answer the person's request with the fact that it won't happen, but yeah. I digress.

    Why are you assuming that person is a troll? I simply informed them that it wouldn't work... No need to get the mods in here for that reason...

    The Otakon 2019 Guest Request Thread

    I shouldn't go into it here, but Vic is no longer welcome to anime cons due to certain things he's allegedly done. He won't be coming to Otakon.

    Arcades thread the third

    No prob... just voicing a frustration I have with that. xD

    Arcades thread the third

    If Sega wasn't such an ass with licensing and whatnot I'd totally attend a tournament like this if Project Diva Future Tone was available to be licensed properly to companies other than Round 1. It's unfortunate that deals can't be worked out for smaller arcades like GamePlay to get at least one machine for people to enjoy...

    The UN Wants to Ban Anime? Wut?

    Soooo apparently the UN (United Nations) wants to ban anime because many of the characters are depicted as under-aged... YouTuber Lost Pause made a video on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtC7yOnasf4 What do y'all think? Let's discuss this in a civil manner.
  19. Yes he's an actual lawyer that either runs or works for a small law firm in Minnesota. He can't have any bias. He isn't Vic's direct lawyer, but he does have a law degree from what I understand. Also why do you try and troll me each time I post something to this thread? Sure I said I'd stop posting, but I found something that's actually credible for discussion and all you do is act like a child and attempt to make me look bad... Why? Stop doing that and this thread can be used for proper debate on Vic's situation.
  20. Here's an actual lawyer talking about what Vic can do in his situation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snt0KPwYYv0

    Possible to require registration before posting?

    @MattTheMinion Awesome. Thank you... Sadly the current Guest Request thread for 2019 was started by a glitchy "guest" user " Guest Beau Murphy" I believe and it's got a crap ton of posts, but I'm glad I wasn't going crazy... lol.

    Possible to require registration before posting?

    So, I don't know why this annoys me as much as it does, but seeing people post guest request threads as guests is annoying... lol. Is there a way that registration is a mandatory step before one can post? I know I'm not the only one annoyed by this...

    The UN Wants to Ban Anime? Wut?

    Yeah... The whole thing is so vague, that I doubt it'll pass into legislature... It doesn't state HOW it'll be banned, it doesn't state WHAT will happen if caught with the banned material, etc... It's quite BS.
  25. Honestly, the same goes for you. Just accept that all I was doing was trying to do was add to the conversation and that I'm indifferent to the situation as a whole. YOU'RE the one being defensive. Had I not have found that video (of which is an opinion of one YouTuber, even if the theme was similar to the one I posted before) I wouldn't have posted again. TheQuartering brings up some points that LostPause(Noble) did not. I found it interesting and found that it might be something people could talk about in a civilized, adult manner... With you it seems like that's not possible. Again, I am indifferent to the situation, and I hope Vic learns from this situation. I am not a fan of his work generally because I'm not a huge fan of dubbed anime. I wish him well, and let's see if he can bounce back after this ordeal. Have a good one.
