I feel like it did too! That's not even later than closing time. I love watching people who've obviously finished hitting the downtown bars come back to the con and belt out a few numbers completely dunk. Is there a mod who's an organizer who try to change this?

Thank you all for your replies, if anyone wants to comment on here about how much they wish the karaoke was 24/7 they totally should. Also, please share more epic stories!

At last years con I walked out of the bathroom and saw this couple HEAVILY making out, the guy was right on top of the girl with his shirt off, 2nd base, grinding, and everything, people formed for the hentai line around and they didn't even notice. I think I saw them like that about 10 more time that weekend... in the main lobby, outside on the steps, in front of a different bathroom, probably horny from all the ecstasy and whatever else they were on. It was really wild.

Why does that downstairs room with all of the ropes (like the use in movie theater concession lines) never get any use? Is it just used for people to get their passes on the 1st day?

Also why is Hayao Miyazaki not at this years con? I personally am outraged and disgusted they did not think to book him. He's a pretty big deal.

Imperial:
the room with the ropes is Registration.

and you can make a request thread after con for next year's convention.

There could be several possible reasons for this. I'll bullet point them. I'm not making this to start an argument, but only because you've asked several times and I think you should have a serious response. (I am not staff, so these are only possibilities, rather than facts).


* To my knowledge he's only visited one American convention, SDCC. Unless Fanime becomes as large as Comic Con (it's nowhere near that right now), it's highly unlikely that a guest of Miyazaki's caliber would be attainable.
* Miyazaki alone would probably take up the entire guest budget.
* The man is the biggest name in Japanese animation. His schedule would probably be difficult to work with in order to get him here.
* From what I've read, he doesn't like attention. Being a headlining guest at a convention doesn't deter attention.
* I doubt Fanime has connections to secure someone like him. Relationships must be built with the right people, first.
* Where would they put him for panels/autographs? It's guaranteed that his appearance would add to the amount of attendees that go just to see him, and I don't know if there is a venue to suit that amount of people
There are probably many more viable reasons why it isn't possible/practical at this time to invite him. I'd love the chance to see him, too, but I'm not holding high hopes of it happening any time soon. And for all we know, they have tried inviting him and have either been turned down or were met with no response.
