Perhaps I sounded as if I am entirely relying on musicfest guests to enjoy Fanime. I'm not. I am going to for several reasons, not the least of which is that Fanime is a bit of a tradition and that I am local. But I would lie if I said the guests weren't important to me. I still have faith in Fanime, sure, but it's disheartening to see all these other cons around the same time get their guests, and big name guests I might add, and still have almost nothing from Fanime. And to keep hearing soon, and yet get nothing, it feels like a big tease. As I have stated previously in another thread, Fanime is a big con and that comes with big expectations. These kinds of things lower those expectations, and that isn't something I want to have with Fanime.
