Hey! I'll be attending as Moh Shuvuu (with a Raiho plush) from Shin Megami Tensei. I'm good any day.

In recent years Linefaced, G-Force, and HeeroYuy135 have ran the gatherings, so maybe contact them? o:

Also, you might want to change the spelling of Atlus since it might confuse people ^o^)/

Yes! That sounds amazing!

Thank you for this info. I will send them a pm.

Derp, oh the joys of autocorrect! I need to get a proper non-work computer, so I can do stuff like this not on my phone. Thank you for catching that!

Hi everybody! I'm Line, one half of your hosts. I'll be attending this year as either Raidou from Devil Summoner or Kanami from P4D, most likely! I submitted our gathering request form and hopefully will be hearing back with an official time soon, and I also requested that we set up a midnight gathering again, if there is interest in that. (For those of you joining us for the first time, our midnight gathering at Fanime tends to be more of a brief social meetup than a gathering proper.) Please let us know if you'd like that to be set up!

For those of you with Facebook, we've created an event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/207947329577895/ that you can RSVP to as well.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!!

Hi everyone, update time! Our gathering will be on Saturday, from 2-3 PM, at location G4. (G4 is "The Hub", aka the stage area on the 1st floor, in the alcove. It's straight ahead if you walk through the main lobby of the con center and between the two staircases, same place as the last few years.)

And the next question: is there interest in a midnight gathering? It looks like I may need to submit a separate form for it, and I want to make sure there is legitimate interest before I schedule something. Please let me know! We'll probably schedule it for Saturday night.

This gathering is right after another gathering I intend to go to, so I'll probably attempt to hurry back to my hotel and quick change into Dancing All Night Rise. Unfortunately I'll very likely show up late. If you're doing shots in order of character, would it be possible for me to request to delay the Rise shots by doing all the other P4 characters before her? (X ~ X ; )

I'm also interested in the midnight gathering since I'm missing part of the main gathering, but the last time I attended the midnight one we posed for two shots and it was declared over. I found it to be very disappointing (especially since I had gotten out of my pajamas back into cosplay!), will this year be the same? I understand it's more of a social gathering, but I'd hope for a chance to do more photos if I'm going to be attending in cosplay. :/

Hi there! We could try to delay some of the P4 shots entirely by just doing the SMT shots before the Persona ones (which I personally think is probably best; Persona 3/4 is usually most of the gathering and we definitely want to make sure that anyone who shows up from other series gets some time in the limelight as well) but the timing all depends very highly on who shows up and how many different characters/series we have, so I can't make any promises there. If you show up late, come find one of us and let us know, and we will find a way to make sure you get in a photo.

The midnight gathering is along the same lines, unfortunately: how we do it depends on who shows up. If there's a lot of people there who couldn't make it to the daytime gathering, we can spend more time on photos, but it also depends on how many photographers show up, too. We sort of have to play that one by ear. I have submitted a request for a midnight gathering since there was a decent amount of interest, so I'll update this thread again if and when I hear back.

As a general PSA: the advice above applies to anyone else who shows up at this gathering, too! As much as G and I would love to have infinite time to play all Atlus games, we haven't gotten through all of them and are not always familiar with your character/game. So if you show up as one of the more "obscure" Atlus games and we somehow miss you when we're calling up series/characters, please, PLEASE let us know!! We're familiar enough with most of the SMT/Persona games and we do our best to include everyone who shows up in at least a few photos, but we only have so much time for games and would appreciate it if you spoke up because we don't want to leave you out! Please also show up with photo ideas if you can, we'll try our best to come up with some shots on our own but if we don't know your game we don't always have the best idea of what you'd like to do. The "Requests" part of the gathering is a great time to pester us.

We hate seeing gatherings where characters get called up for group shots and then ignored the rest of the time, so make sure we know you're there!
