Panels Feedback 2011 - MEGA THREAD

Recommended Posts

Exploring Japan - Perhaps it's the fact that I have been to Tokyo in 2008, I feel the presentation are too basic. While I do learned a few things from the panelist (like Manga cafe), I just dont think I am taking away much else from the panel than I was expecting. On top of that, I think the whole history of Tokyo is very unnecessary, and even more so when you put it in the beginning, it just kinda lost the focus from the audience. I am definitely not a history person, so maybe it is great for someone else. I also dont think it cover the basic of what people should know when they travel to japan - Like where to eat, the manners in Japan ( while japanese are very polite, we as tourists should also have manner and respect them) and where to shop. All in all, there is not much I get from the panel that I wouldnt have from the Tourist book I got from amazon. It'd be nice to know few "hidden gem" in Tokyo B)

Hello, everyone. I'm the lead Touhou Project panelist, and I have to sincerely thank everyone that attended. Every con I attend, it always blows my mind that I get to put on a dress and crack bad jokes into a microphone while indulging in one of my all-time favorite franchises for anywhere from one to three hours and it draws a huge audience which later tells me they had the time of their con weekend there. I love you all. <3

Story time! The scheduling thing for our panel was unfortunate, but that's all it was. I don't want to see people blaming Bruce for this (and, sadly, I have seen a couple people do so elsewhere) when I could have just as easily shot him a schedule update e-mail when I knew that several of us weren't going to be able to make it for 9 AM Friday. Three of us came down from Massachusetts, two of which couldn't get full days off, which meant late departures all around resulting in an inability to coordinate at the con. (One of us didn't arrive at their hotel until 1 AM!) I knew these details a few days before the schedule was released and the idea of updating Otakon staff about our scheduling restrictions never even occurred to me. Live and learn.

Really, Otakon panel staff have been great to us both years we've applied despite me not being the most accommodating or selfless person in response. In the case of this year, the room and time that we had were there because Bruce made especially sure to get us back into the schedule as soon as a spot opened up due to our situation. It wasn't any sort of ignorant or anti-Touhou decision to put us in Panel 2, it was just the spot that happened to open up. And really, that spot ended up being good in its own way because there was nothing going on in the room for the 30 minutes prior to our scheduled start time, which meant we actually got to set up and start a little early!

I am hopeful that we'll get in next year - we will be applying again, at the very least - and this time I will know to make sure to provide all the pertinent scheduling information I can.

Also major shout-out to staff tech guy #2 that scared Scott's laptop into working just by appearing at the panelist table.

Any chance it could be both longer (2hrs???) and in a bigger room next time? It was standing room only.

Hey! I attended a bunch of panels, but I think I loved Anime's Craziest Deaths the best. No BS, just pure content for an hour. It was like eating straight sugar.

ANYWAY. I was the head panelist for The Weirdest Games You've Never Played (which already had a thread over at /index.php?showtopic=21696)">http://board.otakon.com/index.php?showtopic=21696). I know we were at 9 AM on Friday, but if anybody has comments they'd like to share, I'd love to hear them!

The panels are generally what I go to cons for so it's always a big part of what I do during the con.

Good panels:

Hetalia Model UN: As awesome as last year, though it could definitely use more structure as some of the delegates tended to lose focus at points.

Anime News Network: Finally got to put faces to the columns I've been reading for years now and I got Case Closed Season 4 just for standing on line, awesome! (Time ran out before I got to ask my question)

Johnny Yong Bosch Q&A: This dude is hilarious but it's a shame he couldn't get to as many questions because getting people into the room took so long. Thankfully they let him go on an extra fifteen minutes.

Otakon Game Show: As awesome as ever even though I didn't win anything ;) I did just want to point out the lack of variance in the Magical Girl, Porn, Both or Neither category. All the answers were either Magical Girl show or Both, none of the answers were straight up porn and I don't remember any Neither answers. Not that I'm particularly looking for porn obviously, just thought I'd point it out.

Anime Family Feud: Done awesomely, I can't believe they fit in three whole games! I loved how the audience actually acted like the game show audience by cheering and reading aloud the missed answers. The Final Fantasy Summons question seemed a bit esoteric, even in the anime fandom, but other than that the show was really fun.

Investigating Detective Anime: My favorite panel of the con, the panelists were awesome and gave a great presentation. Kudos guys!

Anime's Craziest Deaths: So glad this panel was able to be done properly this year and it did not disappoint! I just wish I didn't have to miss the panel before it in order secure a spot in this one.

So-So panels:

Gintama: It was funny and informative but they started early so I was lost as to whether I was in the right room or not of if my watch was slow and just how much I actually missed. Just like it's annoying when a panel starts late, it's equally annoying when a panel starts early yet you show up on time and therefore miss the beginning. It's unprofessional.

Anime Myths and Legends: It was interesting subject matter, but the panelists were basically just reading off the slides and not expanding off them much.

Steampunk 101: Overall I was meh on this one since I didn't learn anything new (which should have been expected since it's titled 101), but I thought it was being done by the same group that did the Steampunk panel in '09 so that's why I went.

Panels I wish I went to but for one reason or another couldn't get to:

Anime Mythbusters

Any of the Industry panels

Remembering Satoshi Kon

Ukiyo-E 101

Ryokucha-Green Tea

Birth of a Generation: DBZ and Sailor Moon

Get Yourself to Japan

Harajuku and Visual Kei

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Hey, I was the head panelist for Fandom & Criticism: The Art of Active Viewing on Friday at 6pm. If anybody attended the panel, I'd love to hear what you thought of it. I was personally very pleased with the audience engagement, especially in light of the crowd of people who stayed after the panel to chat with us. Otakon staff were also great, working quickly to fix a broken power strip in the middle of the presentation. Thanks guys!

I see that there have been a couple of complaints about the Tokusatsu panel, and I'd like to present the opposing view. I thoroughly enjoyed the panel and thought the format in which it was presented was excellent. Sure it wasn't as "informative," strictly speaking, as some other panels, but I would much rather see clips of what makes Toku so hilariously fun than to sit through an hour-long powerpoint presentation with information copy-pasted from Wikipedia. I've been to both types of panels, and while the latter can be done well, it is much less likely to be as entertaining. My sister -- who has never watched any Toku before -- attended the panel and left wanting to watch a few Showa-era series. A pair of girls sitting behind us also weren't well-versed in Tokusatsu but enjoyed the panel and talked about wanting to watch some Kamen Rider and Super Sentai. And isn't that what fanpanels are all about -- introducing new fans to why we love something so much while entertaining long-time fans? And yes, the panelists were a bit overly enthusiastic, but I didn't mind. In my experience, it is much more fun to watch Toku with a group, especially a group of fans more knowledgeable than myself, than it is to watch Toku alone. I would like to see this panel extended to a two-hour event because Tokusatsu is such a broad genre, with much more to offer than just Kamen Rider and Super Sentai. If it were extended to two hours, maybe a bit more information could be included as well.

And a complaint to the personnel compiling the panel schedule itself: I realize that it is not possible to please everyone and that the panel schedule is not easy to create, but, as a mecha and tokusatsu fan, I felt very slighted this Otakon. Over half of the mecha-themed entertainment this con was scheduled for the exact same time, Saturday from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM. This includes the Gundam Unicorn showing, the Sunrise industry panel, the Underrated Mecha Anime panel, and the Gundam: What Makes it Great panel. Mecha fans this Otakon had to pick and choose what to go to and inevitably ended up missing out. Obviously, every time a congoer chooses to attend a panel, he or she misses out on some other panel. But to have every mecha-themed panel except the Tiger & Bunny one scheduled for the exact same time slot is completely ridiculous. Please think before you schedule next time, as other mecha fans I talked to at the con were displeased as well.

Checked out the Evangelion WTF panel and was a little disappointed.. just guys rambling and showing their collection of stuff they found on the internet. Wasn't as funny as I thought it would be.

I've been to Evangelion WTF at Tekkoshocon, and IMO their panel last year was better.

The Eva WTF panel was ok but I liked last years better since it went into the acutal material as opposed to stuff found on the net.

Thanks for the feedback guys, but it just comes off as kind of strange to me. The "Hey, let's explain Evangelion!" thing has been done TO DEATH, and unless you do a panel about the new Evangelion films (which aren't finished yet) you're talking about a show that's been around for over 15 years. There's nothing new to say about it. The fandom, however, and what comes out of it is considerably more interesting to me at this point. So my goal was to give people something enjoyable rather than informative. I thought I was pretty successful in that regard.

I'm planning on developing this panel a bit further, and trying to work in more stuff from the show itself, so it's a mixture of official and fandom, and I'm hoping to add some interactivity if possible. If you guys have any suggestions for how to improve what I've got so far, I'd appreciate it. Next year I've already picked an informative topic to develop, but Evangelion, WTF? is going to get shopped around between now and early next year, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Feel free to hit me up on PM or email (theevamonkey@gmail.com).

Thanks.

This just went out as a news announcement and will be pushed to our Twitter feed as well but we've created a Panels Feedback Form and would love everyone's input.

We will be taking the data in this thread into account as well when it comes time for selection and scheduling next year, but we'd ask that you take a few minutes to complete the form as well since that data is easier to cull together into usable chunks.

Thanks!

Your Friendly Neighborhood Panels Department.

I forgot to mention before, but I've had this thought for the last three years since I started coming to Otakon, but would it be possible to put who does the panels in the mini-guidebook? I know some of them do mention who does a panel but I'm guessing the description of panels are provided by the panelists themselves and unless they're from a website and/or podcast, it's never mentioned who actually does them.

AMV 101 - I think this is barely okay. Perhaps I was expecting to learn all the MV editing from start to finish, and I am getting somewhat of 'intermediate' panel than beginner or perhaps the panelists just think we are smart enough to know what they are talking about. I feel very lost at that panel. The only 2 highlight is the guy who shows his AMV that won the contest this year and the software that they use for video editing. I woudl also recommend the panelists to speak louder as I had trouble listening to them.

I ran the "Greatest Action Scenes of Asian Cinema Part 2" and I was very happy to see we nearly filled the room (Maybe a dozen empty seats!) I'll let other people give feedback on the actual content since I'm bias, but I gotta say our Staffer was pretty accommodating despite the fact we had no time to set up after the previous panel. They ended at 5pm while we were scheduled to start at 5pm. He said that he'd let us go over a bit but it seems the techs didn't get the message since they told us we were running short on time a few minutes before our last clip. I don't blame them, we had to be rescheduled pretty last minute, but my co-panelist definitely started to feel anxious.

Also, I want to say thank you for the Panelists' Lounge, I didn't really take any snacks, except popcorn, but I did start each day with some OJ and that definitely kept me from getting the con plague. The fact that they chose to play Macross all weekend was a huge plus for me since that series is basically what got me into anime all those years ago. As someone in their mid-20s who has found himself increasingly cynical as to the quality of many recent programs and the fandoms surrounding them, maybe I'm just getting old, seeing the first episode of Macross while having my OJ really put into perspective why I keep coming to Otakon and why I'll keep going as long as possible; I love this stuff and the people associated with it.

Greatest Action Scenes of Asian Cinema Part 2 was very enjoyable. I came in about 15 minutes late or so, but I think I saw 8 clips or so still? Had a lot of fun.

Felt like the clips used were longer than last year's, and that there was less discussion/explanation in between clips compared to last year. Both approaches work fine, though I think that I slightly prefer more towards last year's style for some insight into why the scene is so regarded, as a way of reflection or something to look out for.

Also was a bit sad about the lack of random crazy puppet film this year :)

Nice to see that this year's audience was much larger than last year's.

Is there a list of what films the clips were from?

Again, it was very enjoyable. I wouldn't mind seeing a Part 3 :)

I have already used the panels feedback form to submit all of my thoughts on this years panels, so I'll just state one issue that I feel needs to be addressed, and that I've seen a few people also mention.

I can understand that their are difficulties in determining the schedule of panels, and I can understand at a con as large as Otakon the need to schedule panels with a similar topic at an identical time in order to create more opportunities for people to view content that they're interested in, but taking programming that is part of a certain genre and scheduling the vast majority of that programming at the same time is not an ideal decision, and it was done this year with the majority of mecha-related programming. For example, if I went to see the Sunrise Industry panel this year, I would have missed out on the majority of almost all of the mecha fan panels.

All in all, though, I had an enjoyable experience, and I look forward to more programs next year!

While it's not something that the panelist can control I ended up leaving the Clamp panel within ten minuets cause it turned into a fan girl scream fest. Then there was the on girl in the Chobbits costume who sat next to me who practically tried to run the panel herself by answering almost all the questions. Not sure how it went later on but it was enough to make me want to leave. I'm a fan of several Clamp series believe me but the whole thing just left a real bad impression. Unless the fangirls can put a cork in it and not attempt to burst my eardrums (not happening I know but a guy can dream right?) I doubt I'll be seeing another Clamp panel again.

my favourite panel was the voice actors after dark, altho i missed a tiny bit of the beginning.

the league of dirty old men was really good too, they just didnt have enough time to do the whole panel, which i would have liked to seen. i feel like im overqualified to assist running that panel lol. i would also if possible next year like to see their its a trap panel too.

a few of the panels i would have liked to see were just way too early. i wish they would extend the hours on sunday to after 3 to get later times for some of the good panels so they arent so early in the morning, and to just have more things.

next year im going to try and attend a few more panels since i missed so many.

Hello! Viga here!

How did you like the newest version of The Yaoi-ing Game? I changed and add new questions, segments and titles every year or in some cases such as Otakon, every con.

Also, thank you for being the best audience and group of contests I ever had. Thanks for all the hugs and comments all day Sunday as well. You convinced me to not retire it and instead keep building it every year!

I was one of the panelist for ANImakeup: Professional Makeup for Cosplay Characters. It went far better for us than expected. We filled the 200 seat room and had to turn people away. I really have no complaints maybe more like points too look at for next time.

The good:

* Your tech staff was phenomenal. My PowerPoint was on a Mac and one of the crew ran to the main office to get an adapter for me. They also scored as a lav mic so that Michele could teach and use her hands for the makeup at the same time.

* I loved having the Panelist Lounge. It was a great place for our crew to meet up and relax before the panel.

The Meh:

* The idea of a "panelist badge line" was good but didn't work so well (for us at least) in the long run. We went to collect our badges on Thursday. We had friends that had to wait in the general line (which ran around the corner of the building) and they ended up getting their badges almost 20 minutes before us. I think that is due to the fact that the general line had 20 some desks and the panelist line had one. Again nice gesture/concept but may need some tweaking for next year.

* Our time slot was during the Masquerade. Fortunately we filled the room anyway but my thought on this is that there were probably a lot of cosplayers who had to attend the masquerade due to the costume competition who would have benefited from this panel. This is a suggestion not so much for our benefit but for the benefit of your attendees.

The bad:

* I've got nothing. I really had a great first experience with the panel system. Great job Otakon staff.

I REALLY REALLY like the Making video Game Music Panel. Not only was it fun but it also was a bit educational when it came to choosing what kind of instruments to used to covey certain moods and themes. It was also really cool how everyone would work together to create a song based off someone idea. My favorite part was how different people from the crowd got to go up and show their talent through free-styling on different instruments. I really hope you guys come back next year:)

Hooray for viga! I loved your panel :( if I could change anything, I might make the pictures a little bit harder to choose. Hardcore wins over softcore/shounen almost every time. The one with the twins needed a recount, so clearly ya picked a good pair there hehe. Ooohh! Also, maybe give out candy if you can get two audience members to make out or something, you know, get the boys more involved. Since girls rule, it shouldn't be hard to get us boys to do.....things ^_~ maybe even force some crossdressing or something if they get questions wrong and get to kiss an audience member if they get a question right lol I would love all of that. <33333 thank you for all your hard work and I'm excited to see you next year!

Ha yes definitely one of my favorite panels this year, I was the dude piano freestyling the Ronald McDonald riding a motorcycle while throwing burgers at people song, definitely an interesting theme I'd never have thought of but major fun with it, hope it returns next year.

Thank you to all who attended my panel, "Anime, Manga, and Education." Of the three years I've run it, this was easily the best turnout it's had. I also really like the room we got. Many thanks to the tech crew for getting the mics working quickly.

I missed the "Anime and Manga Studies" panel, unfortunately, so I hope he comes back next year.

I was definitely a fan of the Abridged Panel. As always, those who specialize in comedy always provide a good time. I'd love to see TeamFourStar and LittleKuriboh invited to Otakon for their own panels though. I think that would be a nice draw.

Weirdest Games You've Never Played was a FANTASTIC way to start my con. The panelists were very educated and had everything in their presentation set up and ready to go, and everything about the panel was very professional and entertaining. Pleeeease bring these guys back next year!!

Consequently, FUNimation could have just not had a panel and called it in instead, might have been the worst panel (Official or Unofficial) I've ever been to in my 5 years of attending Otakon. They bought nothing to the table.

Arch Nemesisisisis: Well, it was a good panel, but I think you gave a bit too much leeway with people giving suggestions. It seemed like a lot of people just blurted out their favorite villains and didn't explain why, even when you asked. Ironically, I was ready to explain my choices but you seemed to skip to someone else who had their hand raised. Didn't mind it but eh... Oh, also, the reason you got flak for including Itachi is due to a certain spoilerific plot twist that the English anime hasn't reached yet. Without knowing about that twist though, you're right on about Itachi.

Anime Press Your Luck

LOVED this game, best panel EVER! Why? because I won the first round HAHAHAHAHA! But seriously, this was fantastic. The game was easy to understand, fun to play, the questions weren't too hard or too easy, the prizes were great, the whammies animations were hilariously awesome (need MORE of those) and best of all: you always kept the audience included. Having 6 different audience members, plus the bonus winner who wins something if the player wins something is great. Keep up the audience participation, VERY important, this was an amazing panel and the best fun I had at the whole con.

Regarding Anime Family Feud's survey answers, why not poll the people of Otakon themselves? Friday morning's registration line has plenty of people that I'm sure would be willing to participate and give legitimate answers. I know Anime Next has done this with their version of the game in years past.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already or not, but I figure that before this thread closes down, I might as well add this~

I, personally, felt that Mr. Atsuhiro Iwakami's individual panel was too devoted to getting in additional signatures rather than answering questions. Only about six or seven people out of, maybe, twenty managed to ask their questions--and they were all from the front of the room. The additional fact that those of us sitting closer to the back were given less of a chance to be granted the time to ask our questions was pretty disheartening, in my opinion. I find that the idea of "waiting in line" for questions just doesn't work. I would prefer the traditional method of raising one's hand and being chosen from the audience; it's randomized that way, which equates to greater fairness~ -_-

Anime's Craziest Deaths

Loved it, simply loved it, all I can say is find more, more, and MORE crazy anime deaths. And btw, if you come back next year, please DO NOT show the same clips over again. Show variety, keep using new crazy deaths so people who saw it this year don't get stuck seeing the same stuff all over again.

...I may as well post here, late as it may be.

Craziest deaths, dubs time forgot, and mythbusters were good.

My friend and I were disappointed not to see disorganization XIII's spoiler panel this past year. We were able to get into their fanfic panel, but really wish we could have seen spoiler, too.

I would be interested in 18+ programming during the day, be it for violence or sexual content.

There were a few late panels where you had to make your decision 1-2 hours in advance due to how the lines were forming and if they had technical issues (The panel run by the Excalibur cosplayer, though thankfully the issue wasn't until near the end, I think it had wtf in the title?), did not interest you as you thought they would, or if you did not get in and despise the rave, you had no choice but to go home. It did encourage sleep, but still.

I know this is a bit late, but I was the Head Panelist for the "Otaku and the Grim Reaper" type panel, which was a discussion on shinigami and psychopomps in anime and manga.

If you attended this panel at Otakon 2011, please let me know what I can do to improve it for future conventions; I know some people were interested to see if Charles Dunbar would be doing it and were disappointed that he wasn't this year.
