  1. There was mention on the main site the earliest purchased badges would be sent in July. Got my email this past weekend they are being sent. Should be another week? I should have a badge for all 3 days after missing Saturday a few years.
  2. It might affect attendance for Otakon and/or AnimeNYC if planning for two conventions in the same month. If both required a hotel, I would have to pick either Otakon or NYC. At least I only need a hotel for one convention. Still, Otakon has been my alternate to NY/NJ conventions since 2015 so I'll likely continue to go to otakon until Real life finally catches up to me. I did notice that while 3-day and Saturday tickets sold out quickly for 2023, Friday/Sunday waited until maybe the last week or two weeks to sell out. 200K might be an estimated challenge for AnimeNYC, but 100K may be
  3. Somehow I forgot if I was going to pick up the badge at the convention or it would be mailed. I find the badge in the mail Monday. Badge is activated, so I'm going for another year.
  4. Not sure if it was having both the badge and wristband the day before the actual convention, but it sounds like my timing getting to the convention on Friday was perfect. The only lines I saw that day was the line inside between the dealers room and artist alley. (The middle entrance outside was open and had separate lines). I knew there was a line on Saturday though. Somehow had less panel choices of interest to choose from (Vtuber panel, wotagei, and a zombieland video concert for example), but that gave me more time to see the rest of the convention. Still a fun convention.
  5. It took me awhile to get an appointment for my vaccinations, but now that I'm fully vaccinated (with a vacc record card as proof if necessary), I should be ok with attending conventions. (Haven't traveled out of state since before the outbreak though so I'll keep a mask just incase) Fully investing in attending a convention.... I wanted to be certain first there was going to be an in-person convention. Last I checked, Anime NYC is planning to have their convention so I'm ready for that one. Waiting for official confirmation from Otakon before going all in.
  6. I held on to the email with the original 2020 confirmation and the email indicating that 2020 was cancelled and that the registration would be carried over to 2021 just incase I need it.
  7. Attendance wise, Anime North looks like a major convention, so it can be added to the list of cancelled or postponed conventions until next year. (Anime Frontier, a convention that was going to debut this year will also have to wait until next year. Both conventions would have been scheduled for May).
  8. Well..... it wasn't shelter in place for NYC, but it's close enough. If it's not an essential business, it's either close or work at home. And the order (Starting Sunday) was from the governor rather than the mayor. At least I have plenty of DVD's, Blue Rays, online streaming to watch since I've been falling behind alot or too busy. Index and Railgun series alone should keep me occupied when not working.
  9. Hmmm..... looks like even with my planning for the convention, I couldn't quite keep the motivation going for all 3 days. But I knew I was going to be ready for the Friday concert..... turns out I wasn't ready for the concert as well after it ended (that was a big positive though). - Wasn't familiar of ZAQ by name (knew one of her songs). Turned out to be an awesome performance. (and to be a surprise guest MC at the LL after party on Saturday night, surprised I wasn't a fan sooner). - (The main reason I was at the concert) All the delayed viewings I've been to for Aqours and the L
  10. Already knew I was going at the beginning of the year. Looks like there are more pannels/events/guests of interest leaving me less free time (which is good). As for Lantis concert..... I'll be there. (One of the few times I can say "Can't wait")
  11. A 16 year hobby with 5 of the years at Otakon, too many guests that I can think of, I usually let conventions decide who to invite and not make any requests. But with the chance that I may not be able to continue whether it's lack of motivation or issues at home, Only two possible guests I can think of can change my mind. (1) Aqours - I would not have considered bringing the name up for an east coast appearance if SubUnit Guilty Kiss were not given an invite for a different east coast convention later this year. If the whole group, or even the other SubUnits (Cyaron or Azalea) were invi
