  1. I mean you did meet them outside the confines of Otakon... I'd say that 100% counts haha.
  2. 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
  3. I've seen Scandal at ACen before... They're good!
  4. I don't think I've personally met you, not at least realizing it was you. haha.
  5. Yup and it was a pleasure meeting you Danny (Or do you prefer Daniel?). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 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...
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Thank you for that thorough answer, Jim. I appreciate it and I'll look out for the odd shirt up on eBay.
  10. I know I remember seeing all the t-shirt designs from 1994-Now at the Ota Museum the past few years, but are any of them re-create-able for sale? I started going to Ota in 2009, and I'd love to have con merch (like the shirts) from 1994-2009 and beyond that I don't have. Can anyone shed any light on this?
  11. As much as I love Otakon, attending it online never really piq'd my fancy... I had initially intended on doing a panel/streaming for Otakon.Online, but then I realized all the work I'd want to put into it and it was too short notice for me to do it in time. With all that said, I hope y'all had fun and let's hope we can all hang out in person in 2021.
  12. Hey all, so we don't know if Otakon'll run/run safely by next summer, but under the assumption that it does what's everyone's cosplans? For me I'm going to bring my regular Senbonzakura Miku genderbend as well as rework my Kagerou Days/Daze Miku semi-genderbend, but I also might throw together a Miroku the Monk from Inuyasha in case I wanna swap into him for a bit during the con. What about you guys? Lastly, yay for me starting the Otakon 2021 forum with its first post! lol
  13. Yup. I'm glad they did. That just means they can get bigger and better guests for next year! And maybe use more of the JJCC after the expansion is done.... Like dedicated rooms for the AA and DR, and video game room.
  14. 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 ri
  15. 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 gam
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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...
  19. I won't be getting a PS5 until there's a Project Diva for it.
  20. 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.
  21. I'm hoping the same to happen with AnimeNYC, but yeah let's see.
