  • You can only go the line station only once.  Once you register for your tournaments, that's it.  No more going back in line, so think carefully.
  • Don't be a bonehead and simply sign up for every tournament you feel interested in signing up for just to secure a spot and then later NOT show up.  We know who you are, so don't even dare pull that!!!
  • During the tournament, do NOT leave!!!  If it's an emergency such as a potty break or participating in another tournament, LET THE TOURNAMENT ORGANIZER AND STAFFER KNOW.  If you show up late, expect a forfeit.

  • Once you leave the line for any reason, you can't go back to your spot.
  • Signing up other people in tournaments is prohibited.  Singles tournaments are no exceptions at all.  However, team tournaments may be an exception to "signing up other people" rule.  I suspect that everyone in the team show up.  Otherwise, good luck competing against the opposing team.

Specific Games:
  • To compete in any handheld event or tournament, you must have your own legit game.  Some games may use only 1 game, but please do not rely on that at all.  Bootlegged ROMs will not be accepted.

If you have any questions, feel free to post.  If it's tournament-related, feel free to post on the appropriate threads or this one or PM the tournament organizers (usually the poster of the rules).  If it's private, please PM Jonas (head), Diego (co-head), or Cameron or JT (Seconds / Shift Leads) and we'll see what we can do.  If it is something that you want to discuss with us between you and staff, email egaming@fanime.com at any time.  Thanks.

General Anime Chat / Spring Season 2011 Anime Lineup
« on: February 21, 2011, 12:33:52 PM »


Spring's lineup for 2011.  What to watch, what to watch.  I wonder if this'll be better this season than the current...

Serious Business / Bill 156 - Tokyo's Restriction of "Harmful" Material
« on: December 13, 2010, 02:50:35 PM »
The first story:
http://dankanemitsu.wordpress.com/2010/11/24/bill-156s-total-scope/

The bill finalized on Wednesday:
http://dankanemitsu.wordpress.com/2010/12/13/bill-156-locked-to-go-prime-minister-expresses-concern-as-final-vote-comes-on-wednesday/

Before anyone jumps the gun, this is NOT the entire banning of Anime and Manga as too many people seem to believe all of a sudden!  This bill states that any material that is damaging to the youth's growth such as sexual acts would be RESTRICTED, NOT BANNED.  Publishers would be given 12 months to fix the addressed issues and past the 6 month mark would allow the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to expose the company to the public, forcing intervention from the Governor.  Also, any content that in any way depicts "Child Pornography" would be eliminated.  Internet filtering in cell phones would be forced to be more effective.  Parents would be forced to supervise and administer the Internet usage by minors.  Though Anime and Manga was mentioned in the document, the bill expands more than just that.

On one side (mainly for us Americans), we would easily judge this as a violation of Freedom of Speech, thus the amount of uproar regarding this situation.  This would severely change current ongoing works to create material under this bill, in which some may consider negative.  This would also limit the viewpoints of minors, least likely to have them resolve real-life situations in the outside world effectively.  A lot of people seem to say that there are better methods to solve the issue with harmful material affecting the youth than this.  Currently, it has placed concern amongst the big 10 and the Tokyo International Anime Fair.

On the other hand, some people may see this as an opportunity to rethink the industry.  This may give publishers a way to develop quality works without simply throwing excessive fanservice to the public just for a quick buck (i.e. the mentality of "I am going to buy manga because it has breasts, nudity, and sex").

Thoughts on this?

  • In case specific tournament slots are filled, there will be a reserve list.  While we cannot guarantee a spot, please show up still!
  • Check in begins 1 hour before the tournament and ends 15 minutes before the tournament starts.  You MUST be present at those times, EVEN if you are on the possible waiting list!!  If your name is called and you don't show up, expect to be axed out of the tournament; others on the waiting list WILL replace you.  In other words, if ya snooze, ya lose.
  • Stay in line!  There will be multiple registration staffers to assist you.  You can sign up for more than one tournament.  If you are that hardcore, you can sign up for all the tournaments if you wish, but think carefully.
  • You can only go the line station only once.  Once you register for your tournaments, that's it.  No more going back in line, so think carefully.
  • Don't be a bonehead and simply sign up for every tournament you feel interested in signing up for just to secure a spot and then later NOT show up.  We know who you are, so don't even dare pull that!!!
  • During the tournament, do NOT leave!!!  If it's an emergency such as a potty break or participating in another tournament, LET THE TOURNAMENT ORGANIZER AND STAFFER KNOW.  If you show up late, expect a forfeit.
  • Cutting in line is prohibited.  If you are caught cutting in line, you will be sent to the back of the line.
  • Once you leave the line for any reason, you can't go back to your spot.
  • Signing up other people in tournaments is prohibited.  Singles tournaments are no exceptions at all.  However, team tournaments may be an exception to "signing up other people" rule.  I suspect that everyone in the team show up.  Otherwise, good luck competing against the opposing team for Halo 3 or Left 4 Dead or good luck trying to find a replacement for Rock Band Freestyle.

Specific Games:
  • There are 2 types of Super Smash Bros Brawl tournaments: FUBAR (item usage free-for-all) and No-Items (standardized gameplay from the Smash Community).
  • DDR MAX 2 will use RedOctane afterburner hard pads.
  • DDR Freestyle is the only event that is just an exhibition.  It is not a contest.
  • To compete in any handheld event or tournament, you must have your own legit game.  Some games may use only 1 game, but please do not rely on that at all.  Bootlegged ROMs will not be accepted.

If you have any questions, feel free to post.  If it's tournament-related, feel free to post on the appropriate threads or this one or PM the tournament organizers (usually the poster of the rules).  If it's private, please PM Richard (head), me (co-head), JTChinoy (Console Gaming Lead), or Patrick (PC Gaming Lead) and we'll see what we can do.  Thanks.

There will be a couple of changes in the schedule soon.  Please check the thread frequently.  Thanks.

Things in the Universe / Korean Otaku Marries Anime Body Pillow
« on: March 05, 2010, 06:33:44 PM »


From the article:
A Korean otaku opted to go with the last option, wedding a dakimakura body pillow featuring the image of Fate Testarossa, one of the popular heroines of magical girl show Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. Not only has this particularly dedicated fan married his favorite pillowcase, he also takes her out on dates to restaurants and to amusement parts, as chronicled on media sites.

I know that anyone can fall in love with whatwhoever and be respected while others find this very disturbing.  What are your thoughts?
