Hotel and Facilities / Fanime 2012 housing, Marriott
« on: November 26, 2011, 05:06:40 PM »

Just a question about Marriott for 2012, did Fanime already have a discounted offer earlier last year?  Tried to reserve on Marriott's website but it said it was booked.


Hotel and Facilities / Waitlist: Booking for a specific hotel
« on: January 20, 2011, 09:13:35 PM »
Hi All,

I was wondering if we have the chance to change hotels later on in the future?  I really wanted to book with Marriott since I booked with them last year.  Marriott says if you had stayed with them, along the way there is a free room after ten or so stays.    Last year, Fanime had a waitlist for a specific hotel, but I don't know if the same idea is applied this year 

Please let me know about this as soon as possible.  I booked at Fairmont, but I'm not really interested in staying there, since it's kinda not connected with the hotel.  I'd really love to have a smooth transition to bring stuff downstairs from swap meet over on Thursday and Friday. 

Thanks for your trouble,



Hello Everyone,

The Japanese Art and Cultural Center will have a Halloween party from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.  We need some volunteers to help the kids (and adults!) get face painting. We also need some brushes donated to us too.   There is a Halloween Cosplay Competition from 1 - 2 PM for the best costume.  The prizes are donated from Mitsua, Kinokuniya, Clover Bakery, and most of the Japanese restaraunts in the area.

Please support the Japanese Art and Cultural Center.  We are a non-profit organization.  We are in dire need for some students.  We have barely any students on Wednesdays and Fridays.   I help volunteer for the Anime and Manga class on Wednesdays at 4, and now Fridays at 4.  We are good with the Saturday class.   If we do not get enough people who can attend the class, unfortunately, we would have to shut the class down on the weekdays.

I hope this message gets to people, and that it is part of your Cultural Center too.  Let's please support this, and take advantage of helping out, for the sake of keeping the center alive.

Warm Regards,



Hello All,

There is an open house free demonstration at 10 AM at the Japanese Art and Cultural Center.  We are offering 50% off on certain classes this date, so please come by!  I will be handing out free sketches!



Hi All,

I'll be attending and have a booth at the Tsuchiura Festival in Palo Alto California!  Here is some additional information:!/pages/Palo-Alto-Japan-Tsuchiura-Festival/143227315718996?ref=ts

 There are two contests for Manga Art and Cosplay.  There are 3 levels:

Level 1: K - 5th Grade
Level 2: 6th - 8th Grade
Level 3 9th Grade - 12th Grade.

It's free to enter, and Drawing must be on 9X12 drawing paper. Palo Alto residents only [sorry!]

Cosplayers don't have a specific age group, and the winners should be announced at 12:45. and you don't have to be a Palo Alto Resident!   Please come by!

Here are the forms online:

There are 25 days left until the contest ends.  If you know any schools, please let them know about this.  I'll be attending and helping out and giving free sketches at the festival!  The prizes will be awesome, since I'll be donating some prizes [I'm not giving any hints hehe]  Good luck!  We would really like to see a lot of cosplayers and grade school kids enter the Anime / Manga contest!

Meetings, Gatherings, and Get Togethers / Help with this Dance?
« on: June 13, 2010, 06:47:17 PM »

I never ask help from anyone, but I am kind of in need to have someone help me coordinate these steps with me.

I'm not great at performing myself, however, I'm doing this to help a great friend.



After everyone is all rested up and stuff, I would like to thank the people who attended my panel.  I was having a cold and stuff, but I worked through it. 

Just wanted to say thanks again, and God Bless!

Well, back to coloring and drawing!   Please send a PM to me at your convenience if there are any questions.

General Anime Chat / Pianist anyone?
« on: May 12, 2010, 06:55:10 PM »

Hi There,

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to read sheet music?  I just found a site where most of the Hatsune Miku songs were in sheet music online.

If anyone is interested, let me know, otherwise, I gotta find someone else.   I'd like to film in HD with Miku fans liking the music.   I thought it would be cool to entertain people and have them try out or something to raise our spirits.


Hi Folks,

I was wondering what is this Green Ribbon thing at Fanime?  My friend put it on Facebook, and have no clue what's it about?  Is this a Bleach thing?


Hi There,

I just thought this morning, would there be any possibility of having a M.U.G.E.N. panel, for someone to teach us how to construct a 2-D fighting game character?   

This would really be great!




I just wanted to know what are the hottest Anime Characters of 2010?
Here are some of the titles that I had polled upon:

1. Taokaka - Blazblue
2. Cloud Strife - Final Fantasy
3. Hatsune Miku - [Herself]
4. ????? - Pokemon
5. Death the Kid - Soul Eater

That's all I can think of, can someone give me some suggestions?  I would really like to create some prints, but I don't know what teens-college kids - etc... like nowadays?

Am I close or ???


Everyone can come! Especially in their favorite cosplay if they want. This is what one of my meetup friends wrote:


On may 1st, expect to see thousands of people dressed as
Japanese Anime characters sipping lattes at local cafes.

Here's the current map:

Please invite more members to participate. Then take pictures

It should be fun. I hope someone from the group can organize
the meet up in a particular starbucks and post the location on
the facebook fan page. I hope you can invite more cosplayers. :)

Thanks so much!

Have Fun!  Stay safe!

Panels and Workshops / Ah My Goddess 101, Fanime Cosplay Machine
« on: April 12, 2010, 09:03:21 AM »

I was wondering if anyone was interested in having an Ah My Goddess panel for celebration of the 20th anniversary?  It would be called Ah My Goddess 101. 

The second other panel I'd like to do is the Fanimecon cosplay [time] Machine so that I could talk about my friends who are cosplay and thank them for their times that they had helped out on my Youtube channel.

If this interests anyone, please let me know.

General Convention Discussion / Press Pass?
« on: March 15, 2009, 01:38:14 PM »

I'm new to these forums, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask if there are any chances of registering for a press pass?  Ann Oyama of had asked me this question just last night.

If anyone knows, please let me know as soon as possible.
