Forum Games / Fantasy Draft
« on: April 27, 2013, 07:51:25 PM »
Fantasy Draft

Every post you make, pick 1 fictional character (from anywhere) or real person to be on your "team". Doesn't matter for what game, sport, or journey. Maybe you're looking for power, speed, attitude, dexterity (zing!), ability to score, ability to "score", whatever. Draft a team that'll be on your side. You can't pick a character that's already picked. I'll compile a roster as we go on.

With the first pick of the Fanime Boards Fantasy Draft, I select James Bond.

Current Rosters:

-James Bond

-Kamen Rider OOO

-Vash the Stampede

Serious Business / State of anime fandom
« on: April 19, 2013, 10:59:57 PM »
I am sure it is a changing culture, but I would like for those who remember to think back to the late 1990s and early 2000s in the world of anime/manga fandom. Back then, anime clubs were 'underground' in libraries and schools, and anime were distributed by sharing tapes, laserdiscs, and club screenings. Anime in America seemed unknownsgt (is that a word?) to the general public.

Nowadays, anime is considered a standard medium for global entertainment. Many anime are streamed through Netflix, Youtube, Xfinity, etc., file sharing, abundance on mainstream channels, bookstores with huge manga sections, acceptance of Asian-influenced culture, etc.

I'd like to know where you think the future of anime is headed, and that how events like FanimeCon are evolving.

General Convention Discussion / FanimeCon on Yahoo front page
« on: April 17, 2013, 02:17:50 PM »
FanimeCon made it to the (local) Yahoo front page news for an article saying that San Jose is the 9th biggest nerdiest/geekiest city in America and we're proud of it; with events like Fanime, FurCon, and BigWow. And not to mention the Zelda concert last year.


Ideas and Suggestions / Live streaming
« on: January 16, 2013, 02:01:33 PM »
I'm wondering if there is going to be a live streaming channel for Fanime events, like Stage Zero, game tournaments, and cosplay spectacular? It'll be cool for those that can't make it to the con. Probably through Twitch and Justin

Forum Games / This one time at Fanime
« on: June 02, 2012, 06:20:18 AM »
Game: From whenever time you post, post where were you and what you were doing during Fanime week at that day and time, if you can remember.

For example; at this time of this post (6:20 am Saturday) at Fanime, I was in the e-gaming hall playing DanceManiax

Ideas and Suggestions / Fanime Christmas in the Park tree?

Does Fanime have a tree in Christmas in the Park? If not, maybe have a tree for next year?

I wonder what the tree would look like...

Ideas and Suggestions / By Fans, For Fans theory
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:37:09 AM »
A theory I thought of examining all my recent con experiences:

FanimeCon is no longer an 'anime' convention anymore. Instead of being 'By Fans, For Fans', Fanime has become a convention about fans (of anime/gaming/art/whatever).

Just look at the recent events, panels, forum threads, and most convention related stuff: speed dating, post-con depression, Black & White Ball, Yaoi Bingo, the list goes on.

But are those events about anime? Or are they focused on the people that enjoy them? Back then, panels had an anime industry-based importance to them (such as a Q&A with representatives from Viz Media for example). Now, it's more socially based, as in 'what I can do' or 'make your own', like Artists Alley. Look at the post-con depression threads. They are there because of the interaction of people, not exactly because you didn't get to watch a premiere or see you favorite anime character in cosplay form. Also, look at everyone's favorite convention moment; most are just simply being around the people and not one single convention hosted activity.

I'm not trying to make an argument or create negative debates. It's just an observation of an evolution of the fandom.

Simply put, FanimeCon is now By Fans, For Fans, and About the Fans

Ideas and Suggestions / Sharks playoff party
« on: April 29, 2011, 11:27:02 PM »
If the Sharks move on to the Western Conf. Finals and Stanley Cup Finals, the games would be on the same days of Fanime. Any chance Fanime could have a special viewing room of the game(s) or anything special Sharks-related for Fanime?

Hotel and Facilities / Stairs are SO underrated
« on: March 23, 2011, 08:49:40 PM »
Piggybacking from the "Elevator Staff" thread under Ideas and Suggestions, I'd like to advocate the use of the hotel stairs more often during the con; so much so that there should be signs from the con promoting stairs.
Of course, I'd hate to see someone in a wheelchair, someone in the very top floor, or an elaborate cosplay get denied elevator use, but for the rest of us, the stairs never hurt anyone, especially if you happen to stay on the lower floors. You would get a workout, too.
