Need a room:
+ Introduction: Hey, I'm a 26 year old lady, been to three other Fanimes and multiple other conventions throughout the Bay Area. I really like cosplaying, and the whole convention atmosphere. I love meeting new people, and am friendly and responsible!
+ Hotel Information: I really want to get a room at Hilton or Marriott, and most likely won't be there Thursday night, but I don't mind paying for the extra night if that is required.
+ Requirements: I would prefer being in a girl only room, but it doesn't matter to me too much. I do not want to be the only girl in a room though, that is too uncomfortable for me!
+ Contact: Email is [email protected]
+ Miscellaneous: I don't care about sleeping arrangements, don't mind sleeping on the floor either. I would just like a place that is reasonably priced. Cheaper the better!

Need a room:
+ Introduction: Hi, my name is Kaitlyn and my friend's name is Aaron. I'm 20, and he's 25. Our wonderful roommate that we've had for the past couple years can't make it this year so here we are! I'm looking for a room that will hold both of us. We're pretty shy, and quiet, though we can get a bit hyper sometimes. This will be my 3rd time at Fanime, and his 2nd. We're pretty laid back, and will bring stuff to entertain the room with. (Xbox and maybe Wii).
+ Hotel Information: Somewhere really close to convention center. Thurs-Monday would be prefered.
+ Requirements: I would prefer a bed if possible! I don't sleep well on the floor. Cheaper the better, but would prefer not to have to cram into a room with a bazillion other people. Also would need a room-key, at least one prefer two. We're cosplayers so never know when we need to get into the room to change/fix something.
+ Contact: You can reach me at - [email protected] or my inbox on the forums or facebook.

Need a room:

+ Introduction:
I'm 19 and I attend SJSU for Animation/illust so I'm familiar with the area this will be my 3rd year going. I am cosplay and I plan on just bringing one if not two different costumes, Giratina and possibly Midna (if not my Shadow gijinka). I have plenty of games to bring such as my Xbox and wii (Maybe a wiiu if your interested) If you're also an artist I'd love to bring some art supplies and share. I plan on going alone if I can't find a group to cosplay with so I'd also love to hang out during the con and tag along is that's okay.

+ Hotel Information: Some where close to the con if possible I'm not a stickler on how many people in the room so if we need tons to be able to afford a more expensive hotel I don't mind at all u A u. I'll be happy to bring a sleeping bag~

+ Requirements: Again, I'm not picky at all, I barely sleep haha, I stay up pretty late drawing so don't worry I'm not loud. But If anything I'd prefer a room with other cosplayers (but if you're not I don't mind either). I also don't mind co ed living either u v u

Hi everyone, my roommate and I are 22 year old females, looking to hopefully room with other females. We want to get one of the airport hotels because they are cheaper, and we are looking to spend less than 100 dollars. We are cosplayers, and can even lend you cosplays if you would enjoy cosplaying. I am flying in from Seattle WA, and she is driving into San Jose from Sacramento. Currently, we are staying with four other guys in another hotel, but they arent relying on us at all. Because of this, we would rather room with two other girls at a hotel. So, if the responses are good,

Hotel: Radisson by the Airport
Days: Fri-Mon
Age Range: 20-26
Gender: Female

However, if a group is interested in us, we are welcome to join that group.


Looking for a roommate or two to bunk with myself and a friend of mine at the con this year.

We have a double room at the Sainte Claire, The price is somewhat negotiable($100 is the absolute minimum) I wont be using the bed and neither will my friend(we sleep on the floor).

You have to be 25 years old to bunk with us(I'm 32,my friend is 30, someone closer to our age group is preferred). Doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl, 25 is the minimum age.

The rules are:
- No smoking
- Drinking
- drugs
-drama, or "You know what". We wont be doing any of that either, just having fun at the con. If you want to stay out late that's fine, just be as quiet as you can when you return to the room.

I've bunked at the Sainte Claire, Marriott, and Fairmont and have to say the Sainte Claire is the best of the three. Yes, the Sainte Claire is across the street from the Marriott and isn't quite connected to the con...But a little extra walk isn't a bad thing.

Check out day is as easy and simple(The Marriott is a nightmare, trust me), the Sainte Claire has the better amenities(video cable on TV automatically available, free wi-fi, good sized bathtub and restroom) and overall its a very pleasant and calm hotel to bunk in.

If you're interested give me a PM and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!


Life story: I honestly didn't think the hotel blocks would be sold out as quickly as they would. By the time I checked for hotels, only a couple of left that were not around the area. So I went off to hopefully find a close hotel, I was able to book a room at the Hilton San Jose, connected to the convention. I was able to get a discount by using my AAA membership; it's not the same as Fanime but still a discount. The only upside is that I will not be required to pay the $100 per night deposit at check in. If I can find the number of people I'm looking for it would be $103 per person for the entire stay which is the entire con including Day 0. I live in Los Angeles and have not decided if I will drive or fly to San Jose.

+Hilton San Jose, connected to the convention
+$103 +/- could change with number of people
+Either gender is fine but must be 18+
+Drinking will probably happen, welcome to join but not pressured to, regular drinks will be available
+High chance of sleeping on the floor

Info about me: I'm female 24 years old, I'll be 25 by the time Fanime. I can give you my FB if interested. If I decide to drive to San Jose I will probably be in the area around 3pm-4pm. Flying will be TBD, I have friends in NorCal and not sure when they will decide to meet up. The one thing that I find works the best when checking out is this : Waking up somewhat early to get dress and pack up, you can either check your bags in at the desk or where you plan to, head back up to sleep off until check out time or you may leave early. The closer it gets to check out time, more people will be checking out with bags and it means long waits. We can simply walk down the stairs to the lobby without having to worry about the bags. I'm not a "hardcore" cosplayer so I don't have many cosplays plan and they are mostly street clothes, so please pack accordingly.
It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life hums a long like a song. But the man worth while, is the man who can smile, when everything goes dead wrong.

Roommates Wanted

+ Introduction: Hi, my name is Koko, I'm 18 and I've been to Fanime for 3 years with my friends at Brotaku (feel free to visit us at We hope to advertise our blog in the hopes of getting supporters. As of right now, we're just 3 guys with uncensored opinions on today's Japanese entertainment. We have more "personal" tastes that we think others might enjoy. Our little group of misfits include Boss (prounounced BAUS, our co-founder and public affairs, Takashi (, and myself, one of the eariler members and assistant to Brotaku matters ( We want this Fanime to be a perfect one (as well as the one where we DON'T miss the opening and closing ceremonies). Our main goals for this Fanime are to try to get as much attention for possible supporters and to meet some new faces.

+ Hotel Information:
Rooms:   1
   Non-Smoking Confirmed

+ Costs: The costs will be notified by email to anyone who is interested. Breakfast is free, but lunch and other meals may vary. Total duration of our stay is from Day Zero to the 28th

+ Requirements: Anyone is fine as long as they refrain from touching any merchandise/personal belongings without personal consent

+ Contact: Feel free to contact us through our blog email ([email protected]).

+ Misc.: We hope to enjoy Fanime 2013.


- I'm curious to how Brotaku works. Is it okay for me to observe blog activities? Yes and no. Yes being you may observe us work on things like photoshoots, advertisements, etc. But you may not see us work on private matters such as meetings and private shoots.

- I'm under 18, is it still okay for me to go? If you're underage and you wish to room with us you MUST notify your parent/guardian first and provide contact information in order to keep a safe environment. We are not responsible for any and all misinformation and complaints that involve personal matters. For more information, PM Boss on his facebook or email us.

- I have friends who want to room with me as well, are they allowed to come along? Normally, we'd only allow one roommate at a time, as having too many people in one room could prove to be a hassle. However, if they are able to accommodate themselves it's fine.

- Is there a rule on alcoholic beverages? No, there is no rule against drinking as long as you are responsible for those who drink.

- How will bed arrangements work? It will depends on how the other blog members feel about having an outside party share a bed (Remember that it's a 2 bed room). If possible, try to bring a sleeping bag or air bed if the need arises.

- I'm a girl and I'm not comfortable with staying with guys. What should I do? While we do take into account the personal feelings of other guests, it is not of our concern if someone is comfortable with the residents or not. Rest assured, we are all responsible gentlemen and would not do anything that would be considered an invasion of privacy or personal space.

- Will there be in-room gaming or anything? We are still unsure of anything we could bring to the room, but if anyone has ideas on what to bring, notify us by email. We still want to be able to enjoy the con itself rather than stay in the room the whole time.

Further questions and information on the room may be emailed to us (only emails accepted). We look forward to enjoying Fanime 2013 with everyone and hope for the best!

(Check us out at and!)

Roommates Wanted

Introduction: Hello, hello! My name is Mikaela and I've been attending Fanime for a couple years now. I cosplay and absolutely love meeting new people.
