If you go thru the Fanime's housing site Hotel rooms will be a bit cheaper, and most hotels near or connected to the convention center are partnered with and really only available thru housing anyways.

Prices always can fluctuate (or rather rise) from year to year, but from what I remember (per night):

Ramada (cheapest option) ~$70-$80
Hilton, Mariott, Hyatt ~$99-$130
Fairmont ~$150 (?)

Of course, with tax, these numbers go up a tad, but you do save with some of the hotels off of the amenities they provide like continental breakfast and the like.
Assuming you go Fri-Mon (3 nights) and are splitting with 3 roommates, prices are not too terrible. I remember my 4 night and 3 night rooms at Hyatt last year came around to ~$600 and ~$450 each, around ~$130 per person. And of course you can always go over the 4 person limit on rooms if you want to be a rebel, but that is generally frowned upon (by hotel staff).

If you are a local then doing carpool/light rail works, but at least for me it was way too much trouble for what I saved, and that is as someone that lived only a mile from the convention center for 2 conventions. The convenience of being able to quickly rest, freshen up, store things, not have to get everyone on the same schedule, and time saved overall is well worth the cost.

Hi I'm Alex. For fanime 2018 I'm planning to get a hotel room through the Fanime site. I've never done this before and was wondering what prices were like during last year for the different types of rooms, just to get a jist of the situation.
Yes I have looked at hotel prices for the weekend already, but does registering through the convention site make rooms any cheaper?
Thanks in advance!

If I do decide to attend (just waiting on more Japanese guests to be announced to see if this might be a worthwhile trip because flight + hotel is expensive and I'll be attending AX also in July), I would be down for this!

Might do either: Tsumugi Shirogane, Tenko Chabashira, Miu Iruma, Toko Fukawa or Chiaki Nanami  :)

Now I just need to lose some weight first lol

So far, Fanime only has one guest that I'm interested in (Satomi Sato) and she is (sadly) not enough to make me fly all the way from the East coast for... So hopefully you guys will be able to invite at least 1 more from my long list of 40+ guests to make the trip more worthwhile!!

Studio TRIGGER - This is a no-brainer. Super popular panels. I went to other conventions that hosted them and they always bring great crowds. (I would love to see Sushio or Yoh Yoshinari but any TRIGGER staff is fine with me  :D)

Minako Kotobuki - Voice Actress. Since you're bringing Ritsu from K-On, can you also bring Tsumugi? Pretty please  :'( She also voiced Natsu in Baby Steps and Asuka from Hibike! Euphonium.

Shinichi Nakamura - Producer. Maybe go big and invite the producer of K-On while you're at it? He also worked on popular titles like Free!, CLANNAD, Kanon, AIR, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, and Beyond the Boundary!

Kenji Horikawa - President of P.A. Works, produced Angel Beats!, Another, Hanasaku Iroha, Shirobako, etc.

Haruka Chisuga - Voice Actress, had main roles in Akatsuki no Yona (Ki-ja), Owari no Seraph (Mikaela), Shirobako (Shizuka), etc.

Masaki Tachibana - Director. Some of his works: Princess Principal, Barakamon, and Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (I actually just met him in AnimeNYC but would love to meet him again in Fanime)

Daisuke Namikawa - Voice Actor. God Daisuke. Insane range and most versatile in the industry. I would pay big $$$ to see him.

Aoi Yuuki - Voice Actress, she did the voice of everyone's favorite frog girl in My Hero Academia. She also voiced Diane in Nanatsu no Taizai and Tatsumaki in OPM amongst other roles.

Tensai Okamura - Director and animator. Some of his works: Blue Exorcist, Ghost in the Shell, Nanatsu no Taizai and Wolf's Rain.

Shiori Mikami - Voice Actress. Krista's voice in Attack on Titan and Akari's in Yuru Yuri.

Masahiko Oota - Director. Some of his works: Himouto! Umaru-chan, Minami-ke, and Yuru Yuri.

Yoshida Reiko - Screenwriter. Some of her stuff: Aria, Bakuman, K-On and Non Non Biyori.

Shinya Kawatsura - Directed Kokoro Connect, Non Non Biyori, Tanaka-kun and more.

Ryo Horikawa - Voice Actor. Vegeta in DBZ, Heiji in Detective Conan, Reinhard in Legend of Galactic Heroes and the list goes on.

Megumi Hayashibara - Voice Actress. Living legend. Faye in Cowboy Bebop, Haibara in Detective Conan, Rei in Neon Genesis Evangelion, Musashi in Pokemon, Ranma in Ranma ½, Anna in Shaman King, Genkai in Yu Yu Hakusho and more!!

Wake Up, Girls!

I saw them at Anime Expo and was blown away by their performance! They were charismatic and their energy was infectious! All the girls can hold a note while doing difficult choreography. I also really like their songs, no duds at all. Reminds me of some classic AKB48, uplifting and has a message, they really got my heart and adrenaline pumping!


I initially attended AX for Aqours (Hanamaru best girl  ;)) but I was the most awestruck by WUG (they were easily the best act that night).. However, Aqours was still great (they gave me a warm, fuzzy feel) and is a guaranteed crowd attractor so if you guys can bring them over here, then you really won the lottery ticket.

Oh I also have a question, I know there is a lot of people who are either over 17 or 18 and do not have their license yet, for they either haven't taken their test or gotten their license yet, and cannot use the license as proof of their age. What should we do about that if they are trying to prove that they are their age, i've seen many people at the con over the years who had a problem with this

Then they should adult over to the DMV and get a state ID card.
passports and state IDs count too

what if the individual punishments were more severe? Like you get one warning then you get your badge revoked? I know it's harsh but i doubt people will risk their $60+ badges just for a troll. And it's not like they can say "oh but we didn't know" if you post signs everywhere, post the rule on the forums/website, and make an announcement about it every now and then?? Just a thought... nothing gets people to listen like having their money go to waste
