Since the turnout for 2012 ended up being a success (with others who cosplayed toku but did not know of the gathering also joining in), its coming back for a ground-breaking second season, and we're opening the doors a lot wider this time around.

Be it Kamen Rider Den-O or Ultraman Tiga, Hikounin Sentai Akibaranger or B-Fighter Kabuto(Big Bad Beetleborgs in the states), Space Sherrif Gavan or VR Troopers.....hell, we'll even Let Saban's Masked Rider come out and play for a bit. We can guarantee the action will be intense, the teamups will be awesome, the villains will keep trolling us, and Ikari Gai and Nobuo Akagi will be able to fangasm to their hearts content.

*if its awesome, it can join

Day: Saturday
Time: 4pm (sorry; tried to keep last years' slot, but we got bumped)
Location: G8c (link from gatherings page to help you if you dont know where it is):

Buy/Sell/Trade / [WTS] Orange Box
May 23, 2010, 09:10:40 PM
I have spare copy of The Orange Box (PC) I want to sell; bought two copies back in November 2007, but the second box never made its way to the intended recipient. Still sealed in original shrink-wrap. Looking for $20; will bring it to Fanime for anyone that decides to purchase it to save shipping costs.
The title pretty much says it all.

I moved down here late last year, and don't really know anyone in the area, so I figured a meetup of any forum people that live within the la/burbank metro area might be fun/interesting. This is a complete shot in the dark to see if it'll work or not, so bear with me.

Any takers?
I tried to make it to today's, but alas......I had to work.

I'll see if I can make the next one.

General Convention Discussion / The Fanimecon Reporter

Now this was an interesting find.

(NOTE: if everyone already knew about this, please disregard; if not, HEY I FOUND SOMETHING!!!)

Earlier today, i tried to look up the 2008 website, since it has now been replaced with the current 2009 placeholder. after getting to the main page and arriving at the temp. page, i tried adding "2008" to the address(with different numbers previously bringing up old pages from years past), but instead brought me to this:

i have never seen these until stumbling upon them now, especially the ones dated back from February through the beginning of May. will we see this type of item back for next years website, or was this just a one-shot deal?
Attorney John "Jack" Bruce Thompson has been officially disbarred by the Florida Supreme Court, and is no longer allowed to practice law.

oh happy day.
Things in the Universe / Worst Movie Remakes
September 20, 2008, 11:05:10 PM
You all know what to do, so get to it.
The title pretty much speaks for itself.

I know there are a small handful of people here on the boards that have accounts through Steam, the online digital distribution platform owned by Valve(I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!). The only thing is that there might be a few more people here that actually have Steam accounts, but i just don't know of your actual existence on there yet. Which leads me to my main point.....

If you so wish, please post your Steam ID/account name, since i will be starting a group on Steam very soon.

The second point of this post is that, aside from cataloging Steam IDs, i will make future posts as to when group events will be happening, like nights of Team Fortress 2, Call of Duty 4, and the such(Left 4 Dead comes out in November, people; believe it).
Events will also be based on other criteria, which will be posted later. Hopefully this can also spill over to next years convention, only if PC Gaming does make a comeback...if not, I'll work something out.

News 9/15: First big event will be for Left 4 Dead when it launches in November. check the Fanime group page for even less details:

Gaming / Diablo 3 Announced.
June 28, 2008, 09:59:43 PM
The title says it all.

For those that have played the original Diablo as well as Diablo 2, this is my question/s to you: is it good for those that might want to get this game(my guess is it drops Fall '09) to play the previous titles, will they be alright getting 3 when it comes out without playing the other games(and not knowing the events that took place within the last two games), and are you going to get 3 when it releases?

I have never played any of the Diablo games before, but after seeing the game footage from the Blizzard Invitational, it looks very interesting and i want to play the last two games, since Diablo 3 appears that it will be very entertaining.
Gaming / MADWORLD, OMG!!!!!

for those that are able to view this clip, please do; right now, words can not convey how fucking awesome this game is going to be.
Gaming / Darth Vader and Yoda in Soul Caliber 4
January 09, 2008, 10:10:40 PM
its just like the title says; Darth Vader will be in the PS3 version of Soul Caliber IV, and Yoda will be in the Xbox 360 version, respectively.
Gaming / Hellgate: London
October 30, 2007, 09:28:44 PM
So there's a game called Hellgate: London that is going to launch on Halloween.

I've only been able to play the somewhat short demo, and enjoyed it very much.

Is anyone else picking this up as well, or am i the only one here that shows interest?
It's been almost two months since Fanime 2007 has come and gone, and now is better than waiting until the last minute(although its fun and also crazy to wait until the last minute) to start coming up with suggestions and possible ideas for next year.

Everyone probably knows the drill by now with this type of thread: post your ideas/suggestions/whatever for next year.

i would post an idea right now to start it off, but i'm still figuring out how it would work; if I can put it together and get it somehow approved for '08.......well, let's just say it'll be real fun.
