Hello there!!
Excited to be bringing (FE Heroes Brave Princess ver.) Lucina this year!! Hoping to host a gathering on Sunday, so a Saturday FE gathering this year would be nice!

Would anyone be interested in a poll?

Since Saturday seems to be of interest, I might be able to push it to a Sunday afternoon; the Fire Emblem gathering is on Sunday.

Hi there!
Just wanted to let you know that I’ve already set up a thread for a possible Houseki no Kuni gathering:


Alright, awesome, thanks for letting me know! We’ll see what day most people can be free on as the date approaches.

Hello all and welcome to the first ever Fanime Land of the Lustrous/Houseki no Kuni Gathering!!

This gathering will be inclusive of the manga as well, so spoilers beware!
I will be hosting and attending the gathering as Lapis Lazuli (pre-Phos). Please note who you are planning to cosplay as in the thread below.

Day: TBA (I am aiming for a Saturday or Sunday slot, but we’ll see.)

Time: TBA (I am aiming for an afternoon [around 3:30pm] slot.)

MP (Meeting Place): TBA

L (Location):

Photography Order:

(Legal Statement-Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering/Event this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed.)

Thank you all so much for a fun gathering!! It was awesome getting to see everyone's cosplays! If you have any pictures, please feel free to share!

If anyone is attending Crunchyroll Expo, I plan to host a strictly Mob Psycho 100 Gathering. See you there!

Great improvement this year, CGD! Thank you so much for all your hard work and efforts.

I never walked by the CGD booth on the first floor, and must've missed the description of the location in the email that was sent out. When I began my search for the booth to check in as a host, I was sent by staff at badge pick up (literally 20 ft away from the CGD booth) to go upstairs to ask the info desk upstairs. When I went upstairs, I was sent back downstairs. From there I was sent back to badge-pick up (where I asked a different staff member). And then back upstairs, until after 30 minutes of wandering around I finally found the CGD booth but ended up late to my gathering. Bless your souls CGD, everything was smooth afterwards. However, what was sad to me is the lack of knowledge other staff had about Cosplay Gatherings. The same exact thing happened last year when I asked where a specific location was (I wasn't entirely familiar yet with every gathering location [letter#, ex: G8]).

I was so sad I never found the photo-op room; I was looking so forward to it too!!

I also wish my gathering was titled as a [ONE] Gathering OPM/MP100 as it was meant to be rather than just One Punch Man. There were so many Mob Psycho cosplayers this weekend that I saw but many did not show up; many MP cosplayers I informed of the gathering did not know about it beforehand but showed up in the end. However, what made things most awkward was that when the MP cosplayers arrived, the OPM cosplayers looked incredibly confused.

In short, better location for the CGD booth, more signs, landmarks for gathering spots (some cosplayers did not know where to find the gathering location and subsequently arrived late), and more informed general staff (I know this is out of CGD's power to control all staff, but still, it'd be great if staff as a whole were better prepared and more informed like that of SVCC.)

Great organization and fun nevertheless!! Thanks for a memorable experience and congrats on CGD's growth and improvement.

I highly doubt Fanime will agree with you on this idea (as the costs are high), but I am 100% with you.

#5 got me there. If free play were allowed, I most definitely see my friends and I gaming all night for fun. Freeplay sounds like a great idea, espeically with the gamer theme.

In response to OP's...

Reason 1: I honestly feel that ensuring the second floor of the con and other ground-floor areas to badge-only con goers is a plus. As someone who doesn't really go to panels much, it makes me feel more like my ticket is worth it, and that I am not wasting my money. I paid for the con, it's organization, and events. Why should those who don't pay a cent get to enjoy the same experience as I do for free? It just doesn't make sense. You pay for a ticketed event, you get to enjoy it. Anyone can stand outside a stadium to enjoy a concert for free, but no one is allowed inside the stadium to roam the doorways and hallways, enjoy concessions, purchase merchandise, use the facilities and bathrooms for free.

Reason 2: Paying $85 for the full weekend is kinda on you, buddy. My friends and I paid in advanced and paid $65. I know that $85 is definitely and increase, but as the attendee numbers grow and the convention strives to improve, that's something to be expected. Even then, Fanime tickets for this year started off at $55; the price increases and their scheduled dates were posted on the website ahead of time for all to see. With good planning and organization, getting badges ahead of time and at a cheaper rate shouldn't be a problem.

I agree that one day badge prices are ridiculous, however. Their expensiveness is definitely a great way of getting attendees to purchase the full weekend badge as it is cheaper per day. However, I don't think Fanime realizes how much this method is deterring people who want to go but are literally only able to go for one day from attending the convention. If these one day badge prices continue to rise, the number of attendees for certain days may decline.

I also agree on the whole production value/level of Fanime. I don't expect an Anime Expo, but I do expect guests of equal if not (should be) higher levels as that of SacAnime's. Sacanime is a much smaller amd much cheaper convention, however the majority of the guests they get are much more interesting and tantalizing than a majority of Fanime's guests.

Even so, this year's fanime felt better than last year's, and my friends and I are definitely staying the full weekend and getting a hotel room.

Hello Everyone!! I don't have an online album of photos I took up, but I do have a slideshow at the end of my vlog videos on YouTube!!

Same omg. My cosplays are probably half done rn, but I've been binge watching con vlogs on YT as part of the hype. So *clap, clap*

We've been approved for Sunday, but that doesn't mean both events can't work together!! For those interested, our OPM & MP100 Gathering is Sunday 2pm @ G7, the giant art piece in front of the convention center. I'll be holding an inflatable pocky stick; hope to see you there!

We have a location yet? I would love to go to the gathering!

Yep! We are a go for Sunday 2pm @ G7!
