  1. An idol type group like Wake Up Girls and/or a female vocalists like May'n would be ideal musical guests as a counterbalance to the Anisong World Matsuri acts.
  2. Nah I'll still be attending for the few guest that do appeal to me, dealers' room, and industry panels. This is the 20th anniversary so I was just expecting a lot more.
  3. ACEN is my local con. The only major issue I have with it is the lack in quantity & quality of Japanese guests. Not enough different directors, voice actors, artists & too many fashion guests & DJ's. Their guest relations doesn't seem to have the pull/connections compared to other major cons. It's like the con should easily sell itself to guests with Chicago steps away, but maybe not with all the crime news. I haven't been to Otakon in a few year & am only wanting to attend this year to see how the new location turns out. Hopefully they'll have a good JP guest lineup as it's my main reason for attending these con's.
  4. No cosplay & I have looked into Capital Bike Share & bus routes in case I don't feel like walking. Though if this was still in Baltimore I would definitely have stuck with a closer hotel. I just thought it is a really good deal over the official con hotels some of which are just as far.
  5. Just putting this out there so perhaps a few attendees who don't want to deal with AirBNB/hostels can save some money for a hotel within walking distance of the con. The Phoenix Park Hotel by Union Station about a mile from the con center has a 95th anniversary promotion for a limited number of rooms for the month of August. After taxes it comes out to about $109/night. For comparison my reservation at the Comfort Inn half a mile from the con was one of the cheaper options at $190/night. I'll take the savings over an extra 10-15min walk. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g28970-d84041-Reviews-Phoenix_Park_Hotel-Washington_DC_District_of_Columbia.html
