The 2018 Otakon Goer Roll-Call Thread

Recommended Posts

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.

NAME: Kat Ingersoll

HOMETOWN: Burlington, NC

# of OTAKONS ATTENDED (including this year's, if applicable): 9; This is the first year I'm skipping the con since I started attending in 2009.

BONUS (Your favorite anime that you first saw, and/or was announced, at the Otakon): I don't remember. I think I watched some Lupin movies debuted at Otakon. I don't usually go to cons to do things I can do at home for free.

I won't be attending this year because my baby will be six weeks old then. I want her to have at least her first round of shots before I expose her to a convention environment.

# of Otakons Attended (including this year): I think 6? I started going when I was in highschool in 2005, but didn't go at all while I was in college. Started attending again in 2013, and have missed 2014 and 2017. I've been to a few cons at the convention center in DC, so I'm excited to see how it works for Otakon - I've heard great things!

NAME: Joe

HOMETOWN: Rockville, MD. <---- thought I would be the only one from here?

# of OTAKONS ATTENDED (including this year's, if applicable): This will be my 21st consecutive Otakon.

BONUS (Your favorite anime that you first saw, and/or was announced, at the Otakon): Tough. Likely Air: The End of Evangelion, unless This is Otakudom counts. Or Nescalflowne.

Quirky fact: Hmm . . . my first bike (Charlotte - who's named after the character from Samurai Showdown) is the only bike I'm aware of that's successfully cosplayed at Otakon. It was 1998 in Crystal City.

As we near the 25th Otakon, it's only appropriate I check in as well.

NAME:  Dorie

HOMETOWN:  Glen Burnie, MD

# OF OTAKONS ATTENDED:  fifteen in succession, this will be sixteen.

BONUS:  Many great moments over the years, but two dub premieres stick out, which kinda connects guest-wise to this Otakon.  The first is the Sgt. Frog DUB premiere in that awesome 16th Otakon (2009).  That made me love Todd Haberkorn, even before he became better known as Fairy Tail's Natsu.  The other was a three Otakons later, with the Madoka Magica DUB premiere.  I didn't get to watch the last episodes they ran for that due to an Industry panel overlapping near the end of the screening, but it blew my mind & redefined what I thought about my favored magical girl genre (for the better, yes.).
