Looking to take over a reservation:

I got a hotel far away, and I’m looking for a walking distance one. If you change your mind, I’d be willing to take it with some compensation. I’d be willing to pay $100 if I take over the reservation. I prefer the Fairmont, Marriott, Hilton, The Hyatt, or Westin. I don’t have a particular one that I prefer, as long as it’s walking distance.

You can PM me here or at

Oh its been an issue for years and they have attempted to use a variety of systems to prevent people from abusing it. I was surprised it took them as long as it did to limit it as they did last year, and it makes sense to require registered names on the room to be the only ones to be able to get in. Pushing the loyalty program in is kind of overkill if they already have the names registered, but it isn't a big deal. The loyalty program is easy to sign up for and doesn't require any credit card information or the like, at least when I signed up for it after reading the line on the breakfast. Just get any people you know will be in the room on the roommate list and get them to sign up (that is if they want breakfast).

Yeah, that sounds good!!

And speaking of old school, I'm hoping to take over the Rumiko Takahashi gathering, and plan on having it on Friday, as well(but an earlier time), so that any cosplayers cosplaying from her works can attend both gatherings that day!

I saw that!  I hope you get a big group! :)

The Outlaw Star gang will be back again and with hopefully even more members! As it stands now, we are looking at almost a complete cast give or take 2 characters.

Awesome!  Your group has become a staple of the Old School Cosplay Gathering.  ;D

And a copy of the Facebook Event Page post for today (not doing weekly posts yet but I wanted to make sure all info was mirrored as usual) :

Good morning old schoolers!

A bit of an update now that Fanime is kinda of waking up from its hibernation.  After some thought concerning gathering location I've decided to keep it in the same location as 2018, the G3 video room stairs.  This means we will also be able to utilize the same time as 2018, 6pm.  Of course, locations and times should still be considered TBA until Cosplay Gatherings Department begins their gathering registration process.

We're better prepared to handle the crowd this year (the observers, not the cosplayers - cosplayers have always been great at this gathering) and will try to ensure there is more space for cosplayers to both be able to get up on the stair platforms as well as move off without being absorbed into those watching the gathering.  I've also reworked the photography order for better flow and to allow everyone to get a few great shots.  More space from better crowd control also means I'll be more mobile to help set up shots so we get even better pictures of the gathering.  And as always, in addition to any official Fanime photographer we get, my co-host will be photographing the gathering and that full set of untouched full resolution pictures will be made available the week after Fanime.

As always, if you ever have any questions or concerns about the gathering (before or at-con), just let me know.  I will address them myself and bring them to the attention of Cosplay Gatherings Department as needed.  Do note, I am not Fanime staff but will assist in contacting them.  I'm not as active on Facebook as I once was but I do check in every few days, same with the FanimeCon Forums, so I'm easy to reach.

We had a really good mix of attendees (and our three contestants) last year and I want to emphasize this panel can be enjoyed by anyone who likes anime, even if you only have a curiosity about titles from 2000 and earlier - not just the "hardened vintage retro otaku."  As three year choices are given for each opening / intro, you can think through it and formulate a good guess as to the correct response - although I do like to make them somewhat tricky (but not frustrating) in that regard.  That was actually really cool last year, watching the contestants work a bit of a process of elimination while the openings were playing.

Additionally I try to ensure the panel has a good mix of anime.  At least one title that's really well-known commonly, a few that are very popular but not universal, one truly vintage title, one where the art style betrays its production year, and a general mix otherwise.  I also attempt to utilize titles that have been recently licensed / relicensed or rescued, have a fansubbing project currently underway, have new productions based upon the property currently in work, are celebrating an anniversary, have a connection to a FanimeCon Guest of Honor, etc.  So they are absolutely not thrown together at random - I really think through what to include in the panel as per what is going on with vintage anime currently and then I research to make sure my information is as accurate as possible.

As an example, here's the list from 2018 (which will not be used in subsequent panels) :

Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV (Japanese source of the ever-forgotten Vehicle Voltron)
Galaxy Express 999 (2018 was 40th anniversary)
City Hunter (new animated theatrical film with all original cast to be released in 02/2019)
Marmalade Boy (Ryotaro Okiayu, who voiced the leading male, was a FanimeCon 2018 Guest of Honor)
Cowboy Bebop (2018 was 20th anniversary + well-known)
Chibi Maruko-chan (currently being fansubbed - also a total trick as the years were A.1970 B.1980 C.1990)
Mobile Police Patlabor - Early Days (2018 was 30th anniversary + new Patlabor EZY series was announced)
Eightman (our true vintage title for the session, also the OVA sequel was recently rescued)
Hana Yori Dango / Boys Over Flowers (recently re-licensed)
Dirty Pair (another well-known title, re-licensed not too long ago)

Lensman Galactic Patrol (tiebreak round, also currently undergoing a pretty amazing fansubbing project)

The above is also just a great snapshot of vintage anime with great OPs.  There's also a lot of interesting anime history within those titles, which the panel discusses.  That's really the push behind this panel - to have a lot of fun, share knowledge about vintage anime, discuss availability and new releases, and make this vast subject matter accessible to everyone.  Last year everyone seemed to really enjoy it and the feedback was great, so I want to keep it going.

I submitted my panel application today! Here's hoping Anime Name That Tune gets approved! I will keep you posted.

In the meantime, I'll keep adding more and more OPs, EDs and OSTs to my playlists! Currently I have 2,839 songs!
