Things in the Universe / Re: Why is December 2019 doing this to me?

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

I had this same exact situation with the Monogatari series. At first Aniplex only release them sporadically by each series at a pretty costly penny. Sure enough, a few years later they release ALL of Season 2 in a boxed set 2/3rds the cost of what I’d paid originally. 😫 

It’s just the way things go. Just be patient and it’ll come around again.  Plus, ya never know when a vendor at a con might have things that are older/out of print.

Right!? There plenty of new cosplay choices, especially with the addition of the Atlas Elites!

I like the idea!

Our Outlaw Star crew will be back, yet again! The best gathering at Fanime!

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Cooking Demonstrations

if no live cooking demonstrations, how about a break down of popular anime meals(ingredients & techniques) with a Q&A.
maybe go over cooking basics and/or healthy-ish eating panel?
(gosh i could give so much material for this,hahaha.)
This seems like a pretty good alternative!

I don’t have a lot of experience selling figures, but from my own experience buying online there’s a ton of options when it comes to selling.
I’ve had the most positive experiences on E-Bay. I’ve had a bit of a mixed bag when it come to Amazon Marketplace (Mostly good, but there was one time that I almost got ripped off with some
defective merch from an overseas vendor).
A lot of those sites have a lot of tools to help setup a store so it should be pretty easy. Good luck!👍

Excited to see what new cosplay ideas are going to come along with the release of FF7:Remake next year!

General Anime Chat / Re: Anime That Are On Your "To Watch" List
« on: November 02, 2019, 05:26:39 AM »
So, reviving this because it is a great testament to the fact that there’s SO MUCH MORE stuff out there nowadays and as we all get older with adulting and stuff, slowly decreasing amounts of time to watch Anime.

I’m going to keep it down to my Top 5, because I could list stuff all day:

5: Konosuba
4: Re:Zero
3: Golden Kamuy
2: Your Name
1: Yuri on Ice!

Post your lists!!!

Well, I got one off the list! Yuri on Ice was fantastic, and I loved ever minute of it! I really hope MAPPA comes back to it!

Gaming / Fall/Winter Gaming!
« on: November 02, 2019, 04:45:49 AM »
We got a busy Fall/Winter Gaming Season this year!

October saw the release of the Shadowkeep Expansion for Destiny 2 as well as the continuation of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise. November is looking to be busy as well, with the release of Pokémon Sword/Shield and the long-awaited, very mysterious Death Stranding.

What are some games you’re looking forward to? What are you all playing right now?

There was a Jojo themed one in 2018, how did that one turn out?

(Image removed from quote.)

Right! I remember hearing about that! I’m not too into Escape Rooms, so I passed on it that year. Though I am curious how that would’ve played out.

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Panel idea? how to make anime foods
« on: October 31, 2019, 05:42:42 AM »
It’d definitely be cool! I know I’ve heard of panels like this at other conventions so it should be possible to set something up! Anyone have any ideas?

Happy 1 Year Anniversary to the release of DELTARUNE Ch 1!!! Woohoo!!! Let’s hope we see some more in the near future!

Food is a major no no as it was explained once before by the hosts of stage zero.

It essentially boils down to legality reasons why they can't personally serve food.

That makes sense. You’d be opening yourself up to a lot of liability issues if you can’t 💯 guarantee the food quality.

Still, I’d be cool to have a guest that is centered around the theme of cooking though, given this years theme.

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Art Show / Gallery - for 2020
« on: October 31, 2019, 05:33:31 AM »
Bump for this!

I’d love to see an Art Show/Showcase again! I see them at other cons all the time, so why not Fanime!? Granted, you have it right that’s it’s a huge undertaking to organize, curate and critique to make sure the art displayed is up to a certain standard, but I’d think it’d be well appreciated!

Wish I could help! I really wish they would keep the artist alley listings available for a couple of weeks after the con. I ran into a similar problem with a seller in the dealer's hall. Best of luck!

So Fanime is over and Summer is in full swing! With E3 passed and Steam and other sales on the horizon what’s on your summer playing list?
