General Convention Discussion / Re: Any more guests of honor?
« on: May 09, 2014, 08:52:32 PM »
Looking at Fanime's Facebook, it seems that whoever is running the account is more concerned with people signing up for that Chopped Cosplay event. No, I don't think there will be any more guests. Actually, Fanime is known for doing everything late and messy, perhaps they will get new guests, just that we won't hear about it until hours before the convention actually starts. I wouldn't be surprised.

All these dub actors

Who the hell cares. Animazement is getting a large chunk of the original Japanese Gundam cast (Who all have pretty sizable anime voice roles in general), Kotoko, Studio Trigger, another handful of Anime Producers/Directors...and we're getting some chick who played Bijou in Hamtaro god knows how many years ago?

If my ticket and room weren't already set, I probably wouldn't go, but damn Fanime, I had hope for the 20th Anniversary.

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if the website launched after the convention finished.

Dealers Room / Re: What do you want to see?
« on: February 09, 2014, 08:21:36 PM »
Would love to see that one dealer that sold Dakimakura covers all the way in the corner in 2013. Was totally awesome, they also sold pillows/stuffing as well. There was also this one Touhou-based dealer that sold Touhou Dakimakura covers as well, and he was near the center of the hall.. Don't know why I can't remember their store names, but I hope somebody else does.

Other than that, more Figure dealers that sell more... relevant merchandise? Maybe you can tell current dealers to stop focusing on irrelevant anime from a decade ago that don't sell and focus on stuff that is actually relevant-- this anime season/ maybe a of 3-4 seasons ago... is that possible?

I agree with 9Nine, but why not try for LesPros Entertainment's other group, Babyraids?

I would also like to see Halko Momoi and 7!! to come back.

The day 0 line was the worst experience I've ever had in any convention ever. I can even say with confidence that the line was the worst waiting experience I've had in my life. My group were set to wait in line around 1PM of day 0. Now, my memory is a bit foggy but if I recall correctly, the line was supposed to start at 7PM. That's pretty much 6 hours of people preemptively lining up to get their badges earlier. What seemed like a simple line that started in a room in the Fairmont became a horrible mess that made us move from room to room because the capacity was not taken into consideration. What happens when there is a bunch of movement in lines? Cutting.  It was bound to happen, and it happened to my group. It started with one girl who magically appeared in front of us, and because of the confusion and the misdirection that the staff were feeding us, we thought that we were in our rightful place in line. After we were moved outside, a waiting process that had us sit on pavement for a little more than an hour, the line was pretty peaceful. Then we were moved inside to where the actual waiting room was located, the room before the room with the computers. I'm not sure how to describe it, but we were in the first half of the room somewhere behind a hundred or so people to get moved onto the last room. Hours pass by and the line finally moves, which was an hour late according to the 7PM set time. As we make our way to the 5th or so row, the girl who cut in front of my group called in a male friend who was never there. Minutes later, a staff member joined them and called in a girl who I saw was a hundred or so people behind me in line. That's right, waiting in line from 1PM, these people were NEVER in front of us, and now magically, they are, because one staff member allowed them to. Now, I don't simply blame them for the line being a monstrous journey from room to room to pavement to room to room, but they sure did make the entire experience especially sour for all of us. That, along with the constant reassurance of staff who skim through lines and say that "we're here to make sure that nobody cuts", pretty much guaranteed to my group that, if the line is going to be like this, there is no way we're going to go next year. That being said, maybe someone would wonder why we didn't just complain or inquire about the people cutting. The answer is simple. If we've already waited in line for around five hours, there is no way we would risk prolonging it or being kicked out by complaining against a staff member (even if she did let the other people cut us). Needless to say, we got our badges at around 10PM, backs aching, feet extremely sore, and heads about to explode. We did not enjoy the entire convention because that physical stress carried over to the following days.

As for suggestions, I've read it before and now I'm seeing it again, but I have to agree--
Just mail out the badges.
I know the saying is cliche and doesn't work with every situation, but if other places can do it, this place should be able to as well. I'm willing to pay extra to have the badge mailed out to me. Any other shenanigans and crap that I have to deal with, I'd gladly do, as long as it's not waiting in line.

And please, I'm not sure exactly what kind of staff I was talking about in my little recollection, but all I knew is that this person who let people cut in front of us was wearing a staff badge. I'm under the assumption that because she is staff, she is a representative of Fanime. If you're worrying about staff numbers, I suggest you deal with quality first, and then quantity.

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Live streaming

How about the nico stream? I remember there was one in the Dealer's Hall, I think. I don't remember which year it was either.

Pros

*Dealer's hall was pretty nice this year.
*Although personally the Swap Meet was a bit disappointing for me, I am amazed at the space given.
*Had a pocket schedule.
*The gaming area was great as well.


Cons

*Horrible, horrible registration process. This happened last year as well, with the giant line. Please give more thought into it next time.
*GoH. It may just be myself, but they were extremely disappointing this year. Aizawa was okay, but the rest felt rushed and unwanted.
*Although we had a pocket schedule this year, it wasn't exactly helpful. Not organized enough and had me going back and forth.
*Pointless flyers scattered across tables. Why?
*Although this isn't exactly a problem for Fanime, I want to point out that it'd be better if the dealers in Dealer's hall would start selling merchandise from this year's anime seasons? I'm a little sick of seeing the same old things over and over again.

That's probably it.
I am a bit saddened that Fanime is less about anime and Japanese culture and more about the fanbase of MLP, Homestuck, and Steampunk.

Too much VK.

Get some jrock with 9mm Parabellum Bullet or The Mirraz.

if not; then I agree with post that said Idols.

Berryz Kobou is perfect. (They are going to Sakuracon 1 month on April so its possible they can come to fanimecon)
