Things in the Universe / Re: Fanime Competition: Crunchyroll Expo
« on: April 08, 2017, 01:54:03 PM »
Interesting news. There's always a first. Remember a few years ago Japan Expo? That one was a weird one. Guess the feedback wasnt that good with their silly in/out policy.

Seeing as Curnchyroll has been to all kinds of cons I'm sure they might be up to par. Eh who knows? I'll give it a shot if nothing else is going on.

Yep, well it's not their first rodeo.
Anything can happen. As with Fanime tradition everything will be announced days before the start to the con.
Eh here's hoping for the best.

Hi! I was wondering if someone very talented could make me a cosplay? Willing to pay handsomely, but would prefer not to haha. Anyway, the cosplay I want made is Annie from the video game Story of seasons. I have pictures but I'm not sure how to post them, as I am new.

Well, if you're talented at making cosplays let me know  :)

I would recommend you try to find it online. Chances are you could find a store that has it.

Also if you plan on commission it out, find a local well trusted person that has done commission work before.
I had a bad experience from some dude here, over a simple cosplay work. Hopefully things might have changed since then.

Best of luck.

Things in the Universe / Re: Ghost in the Shell live action film teasers
« on: September 22, 2016, 09:14:06 PM »
Well, the whole ghost in the shell movie plot/theme would actually work out well now a days.
It doesn't have to be set in Japan the whole story could be moved to anywhere in the world, given its set in the future.  While I do like to see a live action clone of the tv series played out, I'll give this a shot.

Hell, it might just be as good as Edge of Tomarrow. Incase you missed the memo that was a manga turned Hollywood movie called All You Need is Kill.  For me that was a dam good movie. I never knew it was a manga till I read the credits.

So it actually might have a shot. The whole reason I think why most anime to Hollywood movies suck, it's because they are kiddy shows trying to be serious in the movie. It just does not translates well.  Given ghost in the shell is no where near kiddy, the story could be on par with Ex Machina movie.

Unless they totally shit on everything and it flops royally the whole plot, then yeah.  Who knows.

Video Programming / Re: Makoto Shinkai - Your Name

The Bluray/DVDs might be out before fanime. Chances might be good.
I wouldn't mind a watching a Makoto Shinkai's films marathon

Panels and Workshops / Re: 2017 Panel Requests!
« on: August 26, 2016, 11:51:46 PM »
Interesting idea, and possible to do.
Not sure how well the stages would be great for dancing.  Then there is the participation accpect. How many people will be willing to sign up for it? Depending on how many people are willing to be in it, it could be more of an event than a panel.

Setting it up is the easy part. Finding contestants that's the hard part. You kind of have to start pulling some Facebook type event/post just to gauge interest. You'll have zero luck just posting here on the forums.

Hotel and Facilities / Re: Average Cost?
« on: August 03, 2016, 07:26:09 PM »
Yep, from $80-140 is the going rate. Could be more next year maybe by a few dollars.
Anyway you have the initial room price per night but also the taxes.

8% sales tax
14% bed tax
$25 parking fee (depends on which hotel.)

Your looking at around $488-$854 total for 5 day night


The only thing that's bad about debit card is the extra $100-200 hold. If you have extra money or don't depend on using that your good to go.

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Who Would Want This Performed?
« on: August 02, 2016, 10:24:57 PM »
Well, I only speak for myself, but if you can have enough time for to fit in a panel go for it. It could be a nice panel type show. Fanime could always use more interesting panels.
That being said I never played the games I just heard of it and one YouTube game play of it.

General Convention Discussion / Re: HELP! Tips for first timers
« on: May 29, 2016, 03:11:38 AM »
Hi Guys!

This is my first time attending any sort of anime convention. I do plan on Cosplaying, but I don't want to go dressed up, as it is a bit hot. Are there rooms where we could change? If so where could I find them? I'd like to verify something else as well. For registration I go to marriott first to pick up my badge and THEN walk to the convention center right? In regards to peace bonding, where would I go to get it branded? Lastly. Would I expedite the process by registering online as opposed to  a "walk in" to pay for my day pass since I have to go to the marriot anyways to pick up the badge?

Thanks in advanced! ;D

Hopefully you'll get this in time,
As for cosplaying, you don't have to cosplay to have fun, just go as you are. But if you want to there are no changing rooms. Just the restrooms. If you are ok with changing in there, then do that. If not just come with your cosplay on.

For registration it's best to do it on line and pick it up at the Marriott. Don't worry the Marriott is connected to the convention center so you really don't have to walk a whole lot. Just ask people or staff where the reg line is at. 

Once you get your badge you'll get a goodie bag with all the info you need. Just find the map to where peace bonding is.

Have fun.

If you don't have a drivers license apply for a state ID at the dmv.
Although it's too late now to get the physical card but, usually takes about 3 weeks.

 If I was you I'll do it asap, they would give you a temporary photo print out from the dmv. So it's official state ID.

Yep. As long as it's with in the rules it's ok.
As far as what you'll see, you'll see mostly anime related, but you'll see a bit of everything. From video games, Doctor Who, Star Wars/Trek, to random Furries.

You kind of answered your own question. Panels could be fan made as well, just depends if your showcasing something or dropping some knowledge on a certain show, game, etc... 

That's why they have a brief description on the panel/fan event in the fanime program guide. It's there for you to decide if it's worth going or skipping it.

Really? I was over there on February, seemed pretty normal to me. Just the typical rowdy crowd from the sports bars, but nothing for me to worry about.

Maybe it's just me but I'm comfortable walking around downtown San Jose,  it's a lot better than walking around downtown LA, I'll tell you what. ;)

But yeah, if your not comfortable with downtown city folk, make sure to go in a group. Or get a taxi, uber or what nots.

Check out the Black and White Ball, take some free dance lessons, That's pretty much all I can recommend, others have filled in.

Next step is to explore Downtown San Jose. Watch a movie, go clubbing, wine and dine.  Lots of great places to check out, that's if your fine walking in downtown, some people are "uncomfortable" walking around when the sun goes down.

Sounds like you reached your fanime limit like me. We both sucked out as much juice we can out if it. Still a fun time you just have to find other stuff to perk your interest again.

Live Programming and Events / Re: Lip Sync contests?
« on: April 19, 2016, 08:49:17 PM »
Sorry there is none.
But, I could see it be an interesting interactive panel. I'm all for more interactive events.
It's too late to submit one, but if you want it could be done for next year.

Big Event Showcase / Re: Dance Lessons for B&W Ball?
« on: April 09, 2016, 01:11:27 AM »
Unless there is a dramatic change in the B&W Ball management things would be the same as in years past. Dance lessons will be available from Friday to Sunday. And all day 9am to 9pm if I recall. Switching to different types of dances every hour.

Pretty much all classes will be beginner level. The private lessons, I don't know, I'm sure it would be the same as last year with a sgin up sheet and what nots.

To answer your  questions , just tell your partner "mind if I lead?" Or  "I'll be leading."
Durring the actual dance lessons you'll chose which side you want to learn.
I'm not too sure what you mean by favorite dances, but I hope I answered them. If not just post again and someone else will chime in.

Serious Business / Re: A little backstory until now
« on: February 11, 2016, 07:13:09 AM »
Dude, it's ok. As much as I like fanime, it's the only con that has a weird vibe when it comes to the people. Any other con I been to I felt right at home, here it seems like someone was giving me the stink eye.  Not all the time but you know what I mean.

Maybe cause most of the attendees are young and this is their first big con, but the general vibe I get from fanime is very cliquey.

Maybe cause I been spoiled by the amazing times I had at AX's 21+ meet and greets that fanime seems... Well you know.....

 First time I tried to invite random people I meet at panels for a room party the all had the "stranger danger" look after I told them. I would just laugh cause it was comical.  Not everyone is like that but I say the 75% of people I asked said no. It's wasn't like I just went up to the crowd and ask a random, it was after we chatted in line for a while or at a panel of even friends of friends.

But meh, maybe the look of my mug, or not an active cosplayer or what ever, but eh. Some people are just not that social. Guess you have to find like minded people.
Oh snap! see that's the cliquey thing right there.

Big Event Showcase / Re: Guests I Want For Music Fest 2016!!
« on: February 06, 2016, 02:48:46 AM »
Thanks everyone for your suggestions; please keep them coming! Just dropping a note to say that we do check the forums even though we may not comment often.

I'm also running a poll on our Twitter since someone brought up local bands, and I wanted to gauge how attendees feel. Do you want to see more local bands inspired by Japanese music (whether cover bands or folks creating their own), or would you rather we kept MusicFest strictly to overseas Japanese artists/bands?

Feel free to answer here or engage in dialogue on Twitter!

Thanks for posting this here too.

Well seeing as how things went last year with "Music Fest" I say add them.  The main band(s) should be an anime related Japanese band/group/what not, but opening bands or even adding a Friday show for main local bands would be awesome too. Then you'll truly be a music "fest"
