@ daiphyer --- next time please ask permission before randomly assuming you can post someone's number. :P

also instead of posting "oh" you should just edit your previous response :P

anyway I'll head out to oakridge now - i need some breakfast and to stretch my legs anyway.

I'll be the crazy one and post my number here --- everyone know it anyways.
if you think you've lost the fanime gathering - call or text me.
and yes, for the ladygagazillonth time - my real name IS Jerry. :P

see you at the mall.

Ah thanks Jerry! I didn't mean for you to post numbers here if you didn't want to :( You could message me as I previously mentioned, just so people won't think I'm trying to pry for numbers. It is solely because I honestly did not know who to contact haha.

Thanks for being a super trooper again, Jerry  ;D

On first post it says 11am for meetup, and someone above said 1pm for that. What are we doing in between?

I saw people mention eating or doing some random activity. I might be coming late or not at all~ I am sorry, it really depends on when I get my work done on Saturday. Who are we to contact if we come later? It'd be hard to walk around and try to figure out where the group is. If someone wants to be the main contact, please post something or message me your number, just in case!  :-X Thank you!

Gaming / Ragnarok Online! EPIC
« on: March 22, 2010, 10:24:36 AM »
Hey All  ;D

Just wanted to know who still plays Ragnarok Online (RO) here! I play on Rebirth RO (private server) so if you want to play with me, just reply!

Or just reply if you play another server that you think is great! RO is a good hangout/chill game and here's a link for people who don't know what it is: http://ratemyserver.net/ and http://iro.ragnarokonline.com/

There are two types of servers: public (pay 2 play) and private

Rebirth RO is private so it's more limited than the public server!

Hi There Again,

Sorry for the questions haha. I am sure others have them too  :)!

If we do not get a reply back from maidcafe@fanime.com, can we still attend the tryouts? I know Jun and the staff have been busy and that's understandable. Just wanted to know if it was okay to still go! Are we meeting at Marriott Lobby? Or in front of the hotel? Thanks!


Meetings, Gatherings, and Get Togethers / Re: Sac-Anime?
« on: March 21, 2010, 01:19:06 AM »
Oooh, I've been living in the Sac area for about 3 years now but never had the chance to commit to going to SacAnime-- due to being busy and no real friends going either.

You all seem to make an argument to just check it out. I might go since the price is pretty cheap and if I get my cosplay done on time, then that'd be cool. If you are driving by car and Sacramento's hotels are full/too pricey, I recommend booking a hotel in West Sacramento or even in Woodland, Davis, Winters, or Dixon. Most places are no more 1/2 hr away from Sacramento. It is a drive but like I said, if Sac hotels are booked/too pricey, consider alternatives. Or else befriend a local there and stay at their apartment/dorm/house. Haha.


Do people really dress up in cosplay a lot at these gatherings? Gawd, I have to speed up my cosplay costume progress  :o Lol

@Sunara: Omg a local local, hehe. Excited. You don't have to answer, but do you go to a high school or college? :)

Not a whole lot. You can if you want to cosplay.
I personally won't cosplay as my new ones aren't done yet.

Actually... I already graduated college. Sadly I'm now a NEET as I don't have a job yet. T.T Though technically I'm not truly because I'm looking? Eh.

I have this fear as well. Job market is so bad :( But hopefully, you can find something in San Jose...aka Silicon Valley woot.

Clarification.  We meet at the food court inside Oakridge Mall.  The food court is located at the entrance to the movie theatres.

I summarized the activities everyone suggested.  I copied the list on the second post.  We meet at the food court and choose what we do in the afternoon and evening.

  • Bowling.  Bowling alley across the street.
  • Tabletop Gaming
  • SVGL (aka Sunnyvale Golfland)
  • Ice Skating
  • Bread and Kinokuniya and maybe Ice Cream
  • Ballroom Dancing
  • Ice Skating
  • In-N-Out
  • Sushi Factory
  • An Awesome Last Minute Idea
I just realized we're missing an option: Jerry's place Unless that is off the table?

@Makaki: Do come... it is an open event.
There will be other new faces as well so don't worry about being a stranger.
Sounds like we might live pretty close to each other. I'm also 5-10 min. away.

Oh, thanks guys :) I did misunderstand, I saw the words, 'close' and 'friends' and I was like, Oh no  :-X! It'd be nice to see some new people from Fanime. Considering that I've been going to Fanime for a while and only made like a couple of friends, haha. Do people really dress up in cosplay a lot at these gatherings? Gawd, I have to speed up my cosplay costume progress  :o Lol

@Sunara: Omg a local local, hehe. Excited. You don't have to answer, but do you go to a high school or college? :)



  • Escaflowne- I only say it's bad because Hitomi and Van did not get to be together. Period.  :(

As much as I LOVE Escaflowne and would never say anything negative about it..........I sadly agree.>.> Hitomi and Van could of at least kissed and have a kid and probably have Hitomi raise that kid on earth at least.>.>

I love Escaflowne too. I have the whole series on VHS o_o That's how old my love is, haha. Yeah, they didn't even kiss :(! If I was her, I would've stayed on Gaia and become Queen of Fanelia. Why would any reasonable girl go back to Earth?! T_T...*Lurks into Escaflowne fanfiction for comfort*

Thanks Jerry for the info!

Didn't know it was a close group of friends  :-[ In that case, jk I signed up, haha have fun! I hope my ideas helped a bit.

Just thought that since it was on the public forum, it'd be a public event  ??? Please specify next time before I get excited because Oakridge is so close to my home haha.

It'd be weird if someone random/new comes haha. I guess for me, I don't like to intrude/invite myself to things  :-X Sorry again!


Worst endings to me are just plain ol' bad endings and animes that discontinue and end like halfway of the manga series!!!

  • Claymore- I loved this manga so I watched the anime...Just to only see some episodes about the first half of Claymore! Why not CONTINUE the Anime!?
  • Escaflowne- I only say it's bad because Hitomi and Van did not get to be together. Period.  :(
  • Ouran High School Host Club- The ending was fine...if that was the REAL ENDING! This manga/anime is popular, that it puzzles me why a 2nd season is not made yet. Sigh. The manga is so much more deeper.
  • Princess Lover- He finds out who killed his parents and he just forgives the killer like he's some saint? So fake! And he doesn't officially end up with anyo of the girls. 12 episodes wasted :(
  • The Twelve Kingdoms/Saiunkoku Monogatari- I only listed these two because they were so great! But the ending of 12 Kingdoms just stopped at a random story discontinuing the main character's journey. Saiunkoku's ending was fine, but I wanted to see more of what the main girl would do and if she'd end up with the emperor. Good ending, sad to see it stop.

Hey All,

Wow I totally found this thread topic by accident! Lol.

It is amazing, why? Because I live pretty much near Oakridge (via 10 minutes away)!

What's more awesome? I love San Jose, lived there my whole life before I had to move away few years ago. Any questions/carpool, please message me!

Third reason why it's awesome? The many many things to do! In 'N Out is awesome for groups and cheap in money or we can all eat at Food Court since it is variety. I would not recommend restaurants because 1.)Hard to pay bill, 2.)Hard to seat a big big group, 3.) ppl have different socioeconomic statuses (aka I'm a poor student). I would NOT recommend Sushi Boat. Yes the prices seem very affordable, but the quality matches the prices. It is not good. If you want cheap, poorly made sushi, then you can go there. But the place itself is TINY.

Ice skating is fun, but it's a long ways from Oakridge. Oakridge is located at the most southern part of San Jose, close to Gilroy! The bowling place NEXT to Oakridge called 300 is the best bowling alley I've ever been to. It has tv screens, big lanes, cool lights, plenty of other things to do (pool, arcade, food, etc.). It's not too expensive either http://www.threehundred.com/san_jose_hours_and_rates.html . Movie is possible, but some people might not want to see movies or they may have to leave at a certain time (like me probably). We can split the group into two and rejoin, but I'd be sad and wondering what is the point to meet&greet when half of them are watching movies? There is also a Golfland ACROSS from Oakridge Mall! It is small however and not up to par in gaming standards, Lol.

My vote: In N Out or Food Court and 300 Bowling. Evening activities: Not sure, I might not be there. But there isn't much to do at night unless you're 21+ and want to hit up the downtown clubs/bars.

So count me in for going! But I will probably have to leave early. I also do not know anyone anyone anyone!!! On the list. So let's meet up at a certain place or else I will get lost.

ININ, you can use a Doodle to finalize options, instead of people going back and forth on the forums. http://www.doodle.com It is a website where people can cast votes for certain options.

TL;DR- Well go READ IT! It's good information.

Hey Princess Cake,

I live in the Davis area, near Sacramento. If you need a ride to Fanime, we can probably work something out! However for the tryouts on March 28th, I cannot help with offering rides :(. If you can get to Amtrak and get to San Jose, then we can work something out so we can get to Fanime Tryouts. Good luck!


I plan on signing up for the maid cafe for 2010. I wanted to do it this year, but thing is I live all the way in Sacramento and I didn't have a very apporiate maid outfit. What would you suggest?

Big Event Showcase / Re: Fanimaid Cafe 2010
« on: March 18, 2010, 10:02:01 PM »
Thanks for the prompt answers :) Here's another question haha.

It was previously mentioned in the thread to wear something cute and representable of yourself. I also noticed someone said they wore something lolita-like to the tryouts.

My question is do we need to dress up as maids or in costumes to show what kinds of maids we want to be? I was planning to wear a cute top with jeans, but if otherwise stated, I will prepare myself to wear a costume or something. Thanks for the clarification!

Also, Where can one park on Sunday for tryouts?

I know it was said that you need your own form of transportation, but if anyone needs a ride or wants to carpool to the tryouts, then I am fine with that. Just message me! I know we're all anxious to go to the tryouts :) Yay!!!

If the staff needs anything, please just message me! I am eager to help in any way, regardless of being a maid or not. I really enjoyed my time as a Fanimaid in 2008, and I was definitely sad to miss it last year in 2009. I know FaniMaid will be awesome this year!

If Jun will not be at March 28th, then who is going to judge/supervise us? Does this decrease the chance of getting in since not everyone (Jun and Mikey?) will be there? I really hope not, because I would love to return again as a maid!  :D Thanks.


I emailed maidcafe@fanime.com yesterday about my interest :D! I hope to hear from you soon. Also will 3/28th be likely the last audition? I hope I didn't sign up too late and will be allowed to attend tryouts, since I was a maid in 2008 and would love to do it again! Thank you!  I look forward to the Maid Cafe again this year.

Staff & Volunteers / Re: Inquiry about Maid Cafe

Volunteered at Fanimaid Cafe today and least to say, I was so sad at how understaffed the event was :(!!

Sydney had tried her best emailing people like CRAZY (Well, she emailed me back continuously without fail) and even kindly, setting up emergency meetings to encourage people to volunteer.

I have been reading Fanimaid Cafe comments for like an hour and I have seen all the positive and negative comments.

Thanks to all who have been so kind to help teach us and no thanks to those who just sit on their butts at the computer hoping to upset people and shock them into drastically changing Fanimaid Cafe.

Least to say, I was upset at the very, very negative comments about Fanimaid Cafe. It is VERY hard to coordinate Maid volunteers because we all live around California or even out of state. A lot of the girls or guys who want to volunteer and help display a "maid cafe" also do not know what to expect.

In the beginning, I MOST certainly did not know what a maid cafe particularly was, but after going to one of the training dates, I definitely got the gist of it and researched it myself. I tried my best to not only handle the trays and serve customers, but I also interacted with them and saw how comfortable my customers were. I maintained myself in a calm composure and bowed each and every time with a smile.

Volunteering at the Cafe today was fun. I was very happy with the girls who wanted to be there and dedicate their time instead of watching panels and shows. Not all girls are shy, timid, and dainty as mouse, but their vibrant, energetic personalities definitely brought a lot of life to the Maid Cafe.

I am thankful for this ideal and event. Like the Fanime Convention when it was once held as a one-day convention at Foothill College, I believe in Fanimaid Cafe and its future growth. I hope the cafe will get its OWN room one day and that we will have a solid staff/volunteer base dedicated to return to this cafe every year. So thank you to all of the maid trainers and staff for helping the maids.

Actually, we just recently got the food contract and floor plan squared away, so maid selection and training should be  starting soon! We'll probably have official announcements of when and where that's going to happen on the forum, so check back...

So I did email Maid Cafe. I am waiting for a reply. Is there any more info? Because Fanime is coming close, and I want to know what the requirements are and schedule it ^^

Hi All,

I just wanted to simply ask if there has been any updates regarding Maid Cafe OR if there is an official thread about it. I just want to know the requirements of being able to volunteer as a Maid and if there were any announcements about it.

Anyone who has volunteered before, please tell us about your experiences!!! And how you went about being a Maid. I am interested to read how people fared from last year.

So, please keep this topic, simple and clean-- NO Hostile Debate/Argument, or I will report you IMMEDIATELY! I read the last topic regarding Maid Cafe and one simple question turned into a heated debate that was locked by an Admin. Please keep this thread friendly so people can come and read it. Be considerate and respectful!  :) Thank you all!
