A long shot, but...

Cibo Matto

Still 50 years ahead of their time and 3 dimensions ahead of their space!  It amazes me that there are still people who don't know about this amazing band.  Their biggest mainstream exposure in the US is probably when the song "Birthday Cake" off their debut album, "Viva! La Woman" was included in Jet Set Radio Future.  They reunited in 2011 and released a third album in 2014 and continue to perform live.  From the few people I've talked with who've had the privilege of seeing them live over the years, they pour energy and sound and are unlike any other duo.  Even if they're not viable for Music Fest, if you're reading this and you are not familiar with Cibo Matto, go check them out right now.

PLEASE.

(I write as I'm sitting here listening to King of Silence...heh)

At least, I can dream, right? I would love to see them live, especially now that they're back together.

Now, if only someone could convince GUITAR VADER to get back together so we can get that long-thwarted Fanime concert that was cancelled from over 10 years ago...

Concerning Guitar Vader, I'd be happy if their entire catalog could be collected into one massive anthology, maybe with a couple interviews, and then be given wide physical release.  At least that way their music would go out with an exclamation point rather than a fuzzy question mark.

For Cibo Matto, yeah, outstanding band with a very unique sound and both involved in a bunch of other projects during their hiatus from Cibo Matto - it's pretty crazy when you see how much music these ladies had a hand in creating.  US-based, have a history of touring to all kinds of venues around the world, essentially still active, and amazingly everyone seems to like their music.  I'm sure they would love to perform at an event like Fanime.  Still, I know it would be quite a stretch to see it happen.

"you have to be pretty naive if you think the majority of people who listen to electronic music and dance all night don't do drugs..."

are you fricken kidding me? that's the same as thinking all asians are bad drivers.


How is it that you equate me saying majority (which is statistically proven at late night Electronic festivals/events/ clubs that majority of people are NOT sober) with ALL (insert racial stereotype)

In philosophy this is called the false equivalency argument which is where you fall into....nice reach tho, and you know Im right  ;)



"the no glowstick policy ....I dunno for a while now ...i seriously doubt Fanime was concerned with people spilling glow stick chemicals."

....if it wasn't that, why wouldn't they ban led gloves?

I thought they were banned too, well 2016 was my last year so my record for attendance (99'-16'), and I don't recall them at all.  Did they have them this year?  Can you tell me what the whole point of LED gloves...are people tutting again in the dark?

It bothers me that more age exclusive programming would even be considered...It's supposed to be family friendly, and I hate to burst someone's bubble, but if it's an age restricted event for legal reasons, you need to have your id.

I don't see the reason for an age restricted dance...is it because you want to hook up with people your own age? go to a bar or nightclub....
worried the minors are going to hook up with someone older? i don't see how you could keep the predators out....
I told my friends that run the dance, it's not interesting to me since there's no bar....so i go to a bar instead....fanime is a dry con afterall.

you do realize most of the age restricted events are later in the day --> Evenings,  most families don't do late night or over nighters at cons...

Saw the AX with by live streaming this year....Fanime needs to step it up

Lol yeah, it's been years and years of people trying to float some ideas to Fanime.  But, in the end Fanime ends up just being Fanime. I could guess and make countless threads or just revisit the countless posts about this same subject, but eh, too much work.

Then again....... you kind of end up getting what you pay for. Hell, look how much AX badges have gone up. But then look at all the line ups they got going.

Guess what I'm saying that's maybe why Fanime always had its own charm, like maybe next year it would be like (fill in the con name here) but next year it's a notch different.

just going to throw out a comment i made to my roommate,
Fanime is like going to Hawaii...there's always the beach
while AX is like Vegas....even after you get there... everything you want to do costs money....I think I ended up spending over $300 last year on the badge and then tickets to stuff I wanted to see or do...

I see fanime more like Disneyland and AX is like Disney World

This was the 1st time in 4 years that I came back to the con to support my roommate and friends who staff.

I heard the staff was smaller this year and it reminded me that this isn't an industry convention like ax and that it really is "by fans for fans"

I wanted to express my appreciation to all the staff members who made this convention happen.  Too many attendees take your contribution for granted and bitch about  everything.  It's not just about getting involved to foster change, but it's getting involved to make sure the convention happens.  If there was no staff, the convention couldn't happen even if badge prices were raised...
