  1. Welcome hons to the Roll-Call Thread! It's a tradition of mine to offer this for all the Otakon goers that will grace the convention floor. This being the 25th Otakon, I thought something fine was needed. So with that, here are this year's parameters: NAME: HOMETOWN: # of OTAKONS ATTENDED (including this year's, if applicable): BONUS (Your favorite anime that you first saw, and/or was announced, at the Otakon): I think that's fine enough. Be good until then, and we'll meet again in August.

    The 2018 Washington Area Travelers Advisory Thread

    Here is an important notice for you commuters. MdTA will soon begin the transition to all-electronic TOLL collection (ETC) at its facilities. These should be operational come summer of next year. ARTICLE

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    I dont think I had the chance to say "wow" yet, so "woooowwwwww!" I agree that not everyone likes the concerts they are offering for 2018, but it's still a major deal and I actually have some interest in learning more about these guys (I listen to classical & orchestral music on occasion). Meanwhile, I'm hoping these new VISA requirements isn't going to mean less foreign guests. I like it when there's a good balance between foreign & domestic, though it seems like one of my requests won't be fulfilled in 2018 (not complaining too much). All that said, I'm going to file a late guest request: If you can track down any former Industry heads from this side of the Pacific, I feel that could give Otakon goers a great perspective of just how far the business of anime has changed over just 25 years.
  4. BTW, how can we look up how many Otakon goers have pre-regged, now that you folk are using the new system??
  5. Oooo, that May 1 date is also good to know, just in case. Thanks.

    Oh my, those are some significant changes. Fortunately, my travels don't take me through those affected lines. Same can't be said other expected Otakon goers.

    Something important to note for 2018. If you are taking metro, note that parking rates have changed, and are now in effect on Saturdays. These rates vary from station to station, so read carefully. RINKU to New Rates

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    The faerie makes another [relevant] guest request: Justin Briner. No need to explain.
  9. Welcome to 2018 hons. This thread will help alert you hons to important diversions & changes to the rails & trails so you won't get bogged down on the road to the 25th Otakon. First, some important changes involving metro: Riders can no longer use the trains & buses if their SmarTrip or CharmCard would lead to a negative balance (i.e. not enough balance to make your trip). Next, there's a new intiative for 2018 called the "Rush Hour Promise" expected to be approved today. That would offer refunds for Metrorail riders if the trains are excessively late, or there's an unexpected disruption, etc. More about that to come. Last for now, work continues on making celluar service available in more underground tunnels within the network. You'll notice that over the course of the Otakon's stay in DC.

    Your first Otakon

    Whelp hons, my first otakon was fifteen years ago...the tenth Otakon in 2003, and I never looked back. It was overwhelming that first experience, but it was a good experience. Seeing some of the voice actors that came in that year was awesome, particularily Justin Cook and Mandy Bonhomme. I still have those Otakon bags with the program guides & whatnot for every year that I've attended, and pulling the 2003 bag out recently made me feel kinda old, which is something I don't want to feel, but oyyyy. Indidentially, I chose the .hack//SIGN badge design that year.

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    The faerie is going to make a musical guest request: "Fhana". I think that band would be perfect to have over for the 25th con.

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    The faerie makes a guest request...animation director & character designer Mai Toda.
  13. I can testify in support of this, I was on the MARC train just leaving Union Station when the storm hit, and it was real nasty. The train was swaying a bit more than due to the high winds. On the radio they issued flash flood warnings for DC, and in addition to the roof leak being mentioned, there were water rescues as well. Meanwhile in Glen Burnie, that same storm knocked out power at my house, and it didn't get restored until before noon Sunday!

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    I second bringing Moni-Chan back. I also hope they can finally bring Colleen Clickenbeard over again (though they almost did a few Otakons ago). Here's an interesting guest request, how about having back some of the "outside" guests, those that were brought in based on that year's theme (e.g. Ray Villard in 2014 when the theme was SPACE). That could be a pretty fun way to look back at all the great people that hace entertained Otakon goers over the years.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Otakon 2015 badge acquire! The art looks really nice this year. I also read the special instruction that came with it, about those who already have their badge picking up their program book. It states that those goers can get them at either the Pratt St. OR Charles St. lobbies. Is this for Thursday, and if so, what are the hours for this?
