    Backpack or Messenger Bag?

    Backpacks are fine and recommended as the weight is distributed evenly. Just don't cram the backpack to the brim with stuff, just keep it to some basic necessities.

    Hype Thread!

    I might actually add this to my con hype playlist. My playlist is public. I aimed for anime vibe music but not filled with a ton of anime soundtrack music. So everyone can listen!

    Anime swap meet?

    For future cons, it might actually be worth asking the convention if they could plan an official swap/anime yard sale event or room. I know Colossalcon does it. When I went, people set up little mini yard sales of their anime merch, and you could swap or buy items.

    'White Civil Rights Rally' application approved for DC

    I think some people are imagining a massive mob of men marching everywhere through DC who are going to harass everyone and anyone in their wake. I highly doubt it's going to be an issue after last year. Nevertheless, I know it's still a justified concern for certain groups like POC. Hopefully, nothing will come of it. DC is a pretty secure city, and anytime a major city has major events going on they tend to amp up police monitoring the area. Chances are most of us will not even see them, much less the chance to be harassed by them. These are probably men who feel empowered in numbers, but outside of their fellow racists company, they're no more powerful than the rest of us, so they probably won't say or do anything. My tip to everyone is simply to not engage if you do happen to run into these guys. Don't stare at them. Don't say anything to them, even if they say something to you. Especially do not touch them. Pretend they're not there.

    Any Chance of a Backup Panel list?

    I remember that. My friends and I were looking at the late night panels to see if it was worth staying at the con that late and saw that a ton of stuff had been canceled.
  6. I've been searching around and I am not finding much. But it seems like last year there were a few things going on. Anyone know of anything?

    Any Chance of a Backup Panel list?

    I feel like this is one of those scenarios where no matter what, a group of people will end up frustrated.

    Food establishments/entertainment

    We didn't explore much. We just went to the food trucks. Oh and we went to this build your own burger joint kind of like Five Guys. They weren't busy in the least, yet they completely messed up two of our burgers so I am hesitant to recommend that place. I'd say stay away from anything Japanese because you know the weebs will be flocking to those places.

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    That would be cool. However, he will be a guest at a con the week before that, and another one the week before that, so I doubt he would want to take on another con.

    The 2018 Otakon Goer Roll-Call Thread

    NAME: Katie HOMETOWN: Ithaca, NY # of OTAKONS ATTENDED (including this year's, if applicable): 2, this will be my second year, but I am not new to anime convention rodeos. BONUS (Your favorite anime that you first saw, and/or was announced, at the Otakon): I haven't seen any anime for the first time at Otakon.

    Nobuo Uematsu at Otakon

    Another thing to consider is that there isn't much of a difference between a meet and greet and an autograph session. It's not like people get to have a conversation with the person and share stories. It's usually just a hand shake, a greeting, autograph, and a photo. And allowing people to get that for free after others paid for it would have some backlash.

    Nobuo Uematsu at Otakon

    I'd imagine not, but I'm hopeful! I've been a fan of Final Fantasy for over 20 years and I was so excited when I saw he was coming. Like... I don't think I've geeked out of anything this hard in a very long time. But then my heart sank when I realized I missed the window of opportunity to buy tickets. Kind of wish they had maybe released them in waves so that people who couldn't purchase tickets yet could get the chance later on.
