  1. As I request every year: Musical Guest: DO AS IN-FREAKIN-FINITY XDDD. I've been requesting them for as long as I can remember. They FINALLY came to the US for a con back on Labor Day weekend of this year to San Japan in San Antonio, Texas but I couldn't get out there to see them. PLEASE BRING THEM TO OTAKON 2020! I hope their schedule allows for it! KOTOKO (never seen her live, but it'd be cool to see her in a concert setting May'n (I saw her in 2018 at Anime Central, and it was awesome) Utada Hikaru (I've seen her a few times, but she's an awesome grab, especially for the Kingdom
  2. ...as I reply to this months later... Yeah I sort of envisioned it like what I quoted there... I just don't think it'd have the same effect as we make it here in the US/Europe/Canada etc.
  3. Hey man.. sorry for not responding to your Renaissance vs Marquis question earlier, but I saw it just now and I responded. I hope it helped.

  4. I was there all weekend for year 3 (my first year) and it was a lot of fun as Danny said. I sadly and admittedly was mostly in the "Video Game Room/Arcade" area of the Dealer's Room most of the weekend, but I did get recognized in my Senbonzakura Mikuo cosplay quite a few times, and that makes me happy. On Sunday at 11AM I attended the Kugimiya Rie Showcase panel which was awesome, as it was her first time/year EVER in the US at a con (and I think overall her first time outside Japan as well). She live dubbed a scene from Toradora (ep 24 at the end) and it was awesome seeing her in-sync wit
  5. Well we can try at least... I don't really have anything planned, so maybe we can work something out? Like meeting up for lunch/dinner one of the days?
  6. 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...
  7. 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 thin

  11. Those're actually mostly the reasons why I attend anime conventions (not just Otakon). I work in retail and when I tell my long time customers about my anime etc hobby and that I attend conventions surrounding it and they remember that I go to certain ones during certain times of the year it makes me feel accepted....lack of a better way of describing it. Back at Otakon 2012 I was able to attend the Hirano Aya concert, and that blew me away. She's so cute in person and seeing her sing the Haruhi songs (as well as her regular Jpop songs) was f-ing amazing! In March I'm going to Japan for "spri
  12. I know it's been said that a Vocaloid concert is unlikely, but if can happen the 1st Mariner Arena would be an awesome venue for it. It's plenty large, and I think CFM would have plenty of room to set stuff up for such an event. NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom, where the Miku Expo NYC concert was held is a MUCH smaller venue and it worked out great... nearly a full house. I'd think that such an event at Otakon could easily fill the Arena. just my $0.02.
  13. As I said above, I saw JAM Project at AB this year, but I wouldn't mind seeing them again. Also re: Hayashibara-sama: I'd like to request/suggest her as a musical guest as well since she is also a great and awesome etc singer. I love her songs. Oh and I almost forgot: Asakawa Yuu. I saw her at AB this year, but didn't have anything to ask her at he QnA Panel... all ppl were asking her was stuff about Vocaloid 3....the same question one person after another... ;;
  14. There is a not-too-secret short list of guests that, should the option appear, I am authorized to pursue with maximum effort. I refer to them as "Holy SH**" guests. The list includes (but isn't limited to): Hayao Miyazaki Rumiko Takahashi Megumi Hayashibara Leiji Matsumoto So no worries -- if the opportunity happens, there will be no hesitation about snapping one of them up. In fact that list is shorter than it used to be... because we've snagged a few over the years. Let's see, Shinkai, Watanabe, Kanno, Jam Project? I've seem JAM Project at Anime Boston thi

  16. I second Hayashibara Megumi-sama as well as all of the original Japanese Sailor Moon cast. I'd die a happy man. xD
