Hmmm, a good question. Maybe someone in the staff can help? Definitely going to be a tough find.

Good evening old schoolers!
As FanimeCon 2020 has been postponed until 2021, we're going to go ahead and roll the gathering over to 2021 as we predicted would happen a couple weeks ago. Nothing has changed for the gathering, other than the date. For this week's old school anime OP, I thought I would go with one that exudes positive energy. It's also my favorite anime OP, from one of my absolute favorite anime series.

The deadline for cancelling reserved hotel rooms is coming up.
Idk about you guys but I cancelled mine. I'm playing it safe this year.

Good afternoon old schoolers!
I do hope you are all well and following shelter-in-place ordinances if they are in effect where you reside. We are continuing preparations for the gathering and our panel, however with rumblings that the California shelter-in-place ordinance will last between 8-12 weeks, we do believe that FanimeCon 2020 will be postponed until 2021. That's fine though, as we'll be there on the other side of this to continue our annual FanimeCon events.
Nothing is certain until an official announcement is made but at this time it's pretty much inevitable. Once an official announcement is made, we will be sure to update the relevant initial threads for the convention programming we host.
Continuing with a weekly anime OP or ED, I thought we could all use a modern classic most of us are familiar with.

I'm sure at this point it will either be postponed or canceled, but with an event this size everything has to be sewn up behind the scenes before an official announcement can be made. There are usually vendor and guest contracts (things like GoH announcements) that have to run as usual until explicitly legally reworked.
What I implore attendees NOT to do is get cynical or angry toward FanimeCon or facilities staff before a specific announcement is made. A FanimeCon cancellation and refund is completely new territory for this event (as it is with many others), and as such its implementation will take time.
I mean, look at how poorly MomoCon has been handling things...

Name That Anime Tune was accepted for Fanime 2020! We're scheduled for Sunday from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM in Panels Room 4. We've got an additional hour this year, so we'll be able to do even more rounds and even more people will be able to play and win prizes!

So, this is my first time planning my trip to Fanime alone. I've never really booked a hotel on my own before, so I'm not quite sure what to expect. I submitted my waitlist reservation earlier this week, so what I'd like to know is how early can I expect to hear back from them? Did I submit too late?
Also, is it worth booking through fanime and waiting as opposed to an external site like hotels.com?

This Gathering Includes: All arcs of TAZ; it is not limited to Balance, Amnesty, and Graduation. All characters are welcome!

Well, sorry about your situation, but don't worry too much.
Being older makes you see the tricks big companies try to push on. Those limited editions are not really 'limited"
Any way, there are a hand full of other stores that carry anime dvd/blurays. Right Stuff is not the only game in town.
There is always eBay, and if need be, Japan's version of eBay. You can easily try there.
As of this post, there are countless of store that have K-On "limited" editions for sale. And as much as I dislike Sword Art Online, that steaming pile of well... there are tons of "limited" blurays out there. Worry not about that title ever running out.
As for a job, worry about that. Make your own money to buy what you want. Yes those box sets are pricey but if you can wait, their value drops year by year.
Case point: I remember wanting to get Cowboy Bebop Remix box set in bluray. it was one of those "limited editions" in a tin box. At release it was $150. No less then 2 years later I found over 10 or those tin box sets for $40 each. Now you can get them for $25 in the 'limited edition tin box" LOL
