Buy/Sell/Trade / WTB old FanimeCon program books
November 27, 2018, 06:12:38 PM

So as my signature says, I've been going to FanimeCon since 1999.  Over the years I've kept all of the previous year's programs.  I'm big on nostalgia, and its fun to flip through now and then and remember previous years. 

WELL, those are all gone now thanks to the Camp Fire that ravaged my town of Paradise, CA and burned my apartment and everything inside to the ground.  T___T

If anyone is willing to sell me their good condition old FanimeCon program books, I would really appreciate it.  I just need 1 of each year.  PM me please :)
General Convention Discussion / Fliers
June 26, 2018, 11:29:10 AM
I noticed the long tables where people drop fliers for other cons/events wasn't in it's usual place this year.  Was this moved somewhere else and I missed it, or gone completely?  Arguably a huge waste of paper I realize, however I always enjoyed picking up one of each and sort of collecting them.
General Convention Discussion / Paramedics

I noticed two incidents this year, each one in the evening outside in front of the convention center, where paramedics were assisting somebody laying on the ground and eventually driving away with them.  Did anyone see what happened?  Are they okay?
Bring your LaserDiscs so I can buy them.  eBay scalpers are making me sad.

I also want to buy Maison Ikkoku dvd sets for less than a king's ransom.
So with all the Fanime excitement, I completely forgot about the level 100 Deoxys Pokemon givaway ending 5/31.  Did anyone pick up an extra?  I am willing to trade a previous event pokemon.  (Victini/Keldeo/Genesect/Meloetta)
Gaming / 3DS StreetPass Totals from Fanime Con
June 01, 2012, 02:03:43 PM
At times I was getting more StreetPass hits than I could keep up with!  Here's my breakdown for what I got at the con:

27558 steps taken

All puzzles completed!

362 UNIQUE Miis tagged (real Miis, not the Mario Kart SpotPass variety that do nothing.  I kick those bums out!)

19 different states (California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana, Texas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Missouri, Tennessee, Ohio, New York, Virginia, Massachusets, Maryland)

5 different countries (United States, Japan, Ireland, Brazil, Portugal)

I was really shocked to see people coming from other states so far away, until I started getting them from other countries.  I didn't realize Fanime Con was so famous!

Anyone else get some interesting data?  Any other countries?
Let's avoid the "cluster" that was last here's missing schedule, and consider something that 10+ anime con's across the country have done:  Use this mobile app created by

The schedule, maps, exhibits, general info, everything a person would need could all be available.  Someone get on this, for the love of kami-sama.
