  1. It was an autograph session down in the Dealer's Room. Purchase definitely was required but they didn't advertise that. Aniplex had brought over some people involved in making the initial SAO anime series and for those people who purchased the BluRay boxed set, an extra card was quietly put in the bag along with your purchase. When I looked at the card later, it was a pass to get into the autograph line on Saturday. The people signing were the Character Designer, Shingo Adachi, and the Sub-Character Designer, Tetsuya Kawakami. However, a surprise third guest who wasn't announced on the pass was the Director, Tomohiko Itou. As Aniplex controlled how many passes were given out, they knew exactly how many autographs to expect. The pass notes that the number of signings will be limited to 100 or one hour's time, whichever came first.
  2. Amouranth for Otakon 2018

    You would probably have to ask her why she's not attending Otakon 2018. She may be someone who only attends conventions that pay her way.

    Your poll is flawed. It asks two different questions and doesn't apply all the possible combinations of answers to those two different questions.
  4. Spotted Today in Manassas, VA

    Ran across this car in Manassas this morning.
  5. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    Etou... Was that directed at my comments in this thread? I ask because I'm not on Otakorp Staff and I never have been. What I've typed on these boards since I first became a member has always been my thoughts only and I've never once attempted to speak for Otakorp. If you think I'm the one being a bit preachy, fair enough. Even I catch myself doing that from time to time.
  6. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    This is just a guess, but perhaps because there is the ability this year to purchase only a single-day badge? People not coming for all three days would have a better chance of attending the concert the day(s) they're there if the concert happened on more than one day. I also think that now that Otakorp has a better handle on the expenses involved with operating at the WEWCC, perhaps their historical 2-concert format might be expanded to 3 or more? Don't quote me on that, though, because I know nothing of Otakorp's actual plans.
  7. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    Let me preface that I've never played any of the Final Fantasy (FF) games and therefore can't tell the difference between part of the FF soundtrack and a song by One Republic. (Well, I suppose one would have words and the other... but I digress.) It's my understanding that the annual Otakon meet-up is about Asian culture, not just anime. Sure, there are a lot of Otakorp members who are really only interested in things relating to anime, but is it really fair to try and limit Otakon to ONLY anime-related content? Ignoring the fact that there actually was anime created based on the FF franchise, you can't deny that since 1987 when the first FF game was released the FF franchise has expanded to the point of firmly integrating itself into Asian culture through novels, movies, manga, anime, and yes, music. Personally, I see no issues with the choice of a Final Fantasy music concert for Otakon. To me it seems like a perfect fit for Otakorp's stated mission. Just my two cent's worth.

    Problem solved!
  9. ShowClix isn't forwarding registration status

    My membership account is still inactive.

    Yeah, my legal name has a "Jr." but sometimes online registration forms don't allow for it. I usually use it so my dad doesn't get missives intended for me. Looking back through my registration history, 2012 through 2015 I used "Jr.", but for 2017 (I skipped Otakon 2016) I did not and was still able to register. Thanks for the contact info. I'll send them a heads-up that my Gofer account may need to be dredged from the abyss.

    2013?! Jeeze Louise was it really that long ago? I'm surprised they kept the Gofer info on me that long. Is Cousin Sue still the point of contact in Gofer Ops? Edit: Just tried logging in to www.otakon.com. It still shows my account inactive for 2018.

    I agree. I was involved with many more interesting aspects of Otakon while I was a Gofer. For example, I'm not artistically inclined and generally don't identify drawing-based workshops as something to attend, but a workshop covering colored pen usage that I was assigned to help setup was interesting even to a caveman like me.
  13. ShowClix isn't forwarding registration status

    My main reason for concern was I was intending to dive back into the Gofer pool this year and 2018 membership preregistration is required before you can register as a Gofer. (Get it? "dive" into the "pool"?.... <crickets chirping> ...Hello? [tap tap tap] Is this mic on?...) It doesn't look like they have the 2018 Gofer registration set up yet, however.

    OK, just going to chill for a few more days then.
