Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Ideas and Suggestions for Fanime 2011

Wondering if anyone else has any ideas or suggestions based off this year's con to improve next year's con

From what I've read:

1. Bring back the J drama room(well actually maybe just I want this >_>;)
2. Better games selections (all types).
3. More polite rovers.
4. Better music selection

oh yeah anime club, i signed up at oper last fall, they never emailed me. it's end of the year now, so prolly ill join next year.

That's too bad that you weren't e-mailed. I don't know who's running it these days, but they're a pretty colorful bunch in general. Hopefully they'll play some anime you like. Otherwise, it's a nice opportunity to make some friends who are into the same nerdy things you're into. Hopefully they'll e-mail you in the fall. When I was a student, they met Saturday afternoons at the Student Union, but I'm not sure when/where they're meeting these days.

I didn't play any console games this year. I'm not really sure how they worked out. Is it that people get to check out the games they want to play or are the games just pre-determined? I really wanted to play super street fighter IV, but then someone told me that people were only allowed to play that during tournament times? I thought that was really lame.

In PAX, people get to just rent consoles and play whatever they want for a certain time period. It's a really good system because no one runs into the problem that I had- no one is playing anything you want to play.  Is it possible to do one of those systems? Other than that, I just wanted more consoles available to play and playing whatever game I wanted to play at whatever time.

- Asian film room is one of my favorite parts of fanime, but this year there was only 1 film I really wanted to see, and it was scheduled at 5am on Monday, which made it very difficult to attend.  I understand that scheduling is scheduling and there is always something that needs to go in that spot and it is a decision that must be made to the ire of someone out there.  The film in question "Heaven's Door" was one I felt perhaps could have used a more 'prime' spot than arguably the worst possible slot (the film is directed by the same person who directed "Tekkonkinkreet" and has a soundtrack by Plaid).  Failing that maybe having 2 asian film rooms so there could be encores of films or at least 2 showings of each film at a different time as has been done in years past would alleviate this?


I agree with this. I already complained about getting rid of my beloved Asian drama room, but there was seriously nothing I wanted to watch from the Asian film room. Almost everything there was a crime/action flick during prime hours. It really sucked because I don't like action movies at all and I prefer girl movies/drama. I suggest next year trying to be more balanced. There are a lot of girls who'd be interested in watching something that isn't an action flick.

I was in anime club when I went to UCSC. A lot of the anime club people went to fanime, but other than them, it's kind of hard to coordinate a UCSC meeting at fanime. I tried one year and kind of failed, lol.

The fanime magazine thing: My biggest complaint is that I would really, really love to have all the summaries for every anime/movies at the con. I don't really know any of the shows that fanime plays so it's kind of hard to decide what I want to watch. I gotta go up to all the salons and read the summaries if the show sounds interesting to me. It would be helpful if people had some kind of wifi device, I guess, but a lot of people don't have those. I'd rather not pay the extra free for the cellphone internet, sorry!

The full list of all of the anime shown at the con includes something like 150+ series. That, coupled with the Asian Movies, would have been 4-5 times the size of the space currently alloted for anime descriptions. Relative to the current size of the whole program guide, to include 50 word descriptions of all the series would take up nearly half of the guide. I agree with your point, but practically speaking it would get kind of crazy and isn't super feasible.

Maybe we could switch to haiku descriptions or 3-word summaries ^_^ That would amuse me and be awesome for space but I assume less helpful.

I totally agree that it would be useful to maybe have some photocopy packets of series and descriptions for people who specifically seek it out. Or to save you time, maybe just assemble a description packet for each info desk or have it all in one place so you're not walking room to room every time.

Good point. Your second suggestion is a good one. I'd definitely seek one of those out. In the magazine, the summaries of the anime/movies are the only things I really read in detail. Otherwise, maybe someone should make a page on the fanime site that has summaries of everything. At least I can reference that when I go home every night.

Edit: About the person complaining about the Gong thing, I think it's fine. I don't care that I was called a tranny(although these days in some states, that's calling someone that could go on their criminal record as hate speech XD;). My problem with the Gong competition is that when I participated last year, it kind of pissed me off how the judges were judging it. I mean, not that I thought I should have gotten a prize, but I was certainly more horrible than that friend of theirs they gave a prize to just for agreeing to participate(seriously, she was super not into it and didn't do anything remotely amusing). I almost think a voting system would be better, but it would also take a ton of more time. I dunno. I kind of wish the judges were less biased, though.

Ok Here is all my feedback.

Asian Drama Room: What happened to this? I'm pretty disappointed that you guys didn't have it this year. I'm very, very picky with what anime I watch, so most years I just watched Asian drama shows.

Gaming Room: The board games were pretty cool, though a lot of them were missing instructions, which made them hard if not impossible to play for the newbs or people who didn't know all the instructions. We went home and printed instructions for Risk and left it in there so hopefully no one stole it 0_o. Also, would it be possible to keep tabs on which games get checked out? This would be beneficial to know for future years as some games I imagine aren't going to really be checked out and some are always checked out. So instead of having video trivial persuit games (a less popular choice) you could have more (insert very popular game).

One minor complaint... I don't really understand why there is a SPECIFIC entrance and exit for the games room. Do any of the other areas have this?

The fanime magazine thing: My biggest complaint is that I would really, really love to have all the summaries for every anime/movies at the con. I don't really know any of the shows that fanime plays so it's kind of hard to decide what I want to watch. I gotta go up to all the salons and read the summaries if the show sounds interesting to me. It would be helpful if people had some kind of wifi device, I guess, but a lot of people don't have those. I'd rather not pay the extra free for the cellphone internet, sorry!

That's about it. Thank you.
