Good evening old schoolers,

As I am sure you are aware, FanimeCon 2021 cannot be held in-person and will instead be a virtual event.  As the notion of a gathering is to bring people together in person, we will be rolling the gathering ahead to 2022, when hopefully FanimeCon will be able to be held physically once again.  We are fully committed to hosting this gathering (as well as our Vintage Anime panel) in 2022.

Until then, not much changes here.  I'm still going to continue to share an old school anime opening or ending right up until Fanime, as usual.  Yeah, I'm going to keep it rolling until 2022.  The Facebook event page has been updated to reflect this, and the forum thread will be updated as well shortly.

With the expected delay and postponement to 2022, I decided to go with my favorite of all the Sailor Moon endings this week, that of Sailor Moon R.  Otome no Policy "A Maiden's Policy" is also my favorite song in the entire franchise.  The ending itself is perfectly matched to the music and showcases Usagi's double life in a very subtle way - along with some interesting animation motion.  I've also always felt it to be the most "Usagi" of all the Sailor Moon music, not entirely confident but tenacious in positivity.  Perfect song for the announcement of further Fanime deferment and presentation of virtual events for this year.

Yeah, the pandemic lasting this long wasn't what we expected. We had hoped that we would be able to return to Fanime this year.

It's been hard on all of us, mentally and financially. As long as Virtual Fanime is decent, and knowing that Fanime 2022 is likely, letting my badge roll over again is a decision I'm willing to make at this point.

(But deleting threads regarding ideas for Fanime 2021 and stuff like that was not a wise decision on their part. In all honesty that was kinda rude.....)

it's okay to cry and cannot obtain these things..
This is where Swap meet comes in.
Sometimes you may find something you may like thats better than what others would think..
and sometimes.. you may find something you wanted to have when your a kid.. but the price is affordable because its " heavily used"..


It's okay to feel sorry and depress..but know this.. there are some folks like me and my sister who sell these priceless items to those who wished it so.. Some of our items may be priced high but if your a HUGE HUGE HUGEEEEE fan..i wouldn't mind taking a loss of income and give it to someone happy!..

Case in point.. I sold a large Dragonair PLushie..
Most people were low balling me because they wanted it but this one woman who already has one.. wanted the one I have.. and I gave her a discount because I KNOW she loves to have something like it to actually wrap around her waist.. I can't remember her name but she volunteers for the swap meet.

The worse is when I sold games of pokemon red, yellow and blue and a few GBC devices.. and in the end. THEY RESOLD IT for more than double!..
and I knew for a moment that I was tricked/played with!

AS for the K-ON! limited edition.... I didn't know that existed but HOLY crap that is expensive as hell!!!!
I"ll see if I can find someone I know who is selling it for...erh...less....???

SO yeah I am at a point where I was happy to volunteer and help the Fan made fanime con virtual con on discord.. and that was kinda fun but abit...abysmal :_;..

Crunchy roll did a better job hosting their convention and it was more fun!...
as for sacanime.. they were "careful" ( I hope in terms of CARELESSNESS), reducing the entire convention into nothing more than a giant dealers hall + Autograph section.. so theres no panels and screen rooms.. so.. it was abit...difficult to enjoy.. safety wise..is there..just.. they havent done screen checking at all tobegin with!...but there were people who did show up with masks..and...near the end of the convention.. ( Without masks)

So that was an issue ;_;!...

I don't know how fanime is doing a virtual con version but they should have planned and make something like this before.
The fans of discord did their personal best, but again this WAS their best to offer some ideas of a limited (fan) fun convention!

....but for fanime to not respond BACk at all was a huge huge shock which I can take a hint that they must have been hit very hard.

You canot blame fanime staff for being this disorganized, they had this planned out but they thought the pandemic wouldn't be this of an issue until it happens. By the time May happens, MAny people did lost their jobs (And their homes)
So I can feel and share their pain!

ON THE BRIGHTSIDE::
they finally have some annoucement regarding about 2021... and its nice its going to be virtual.. but lets see how they do their best to perform....

otherwise we still got discord...right?

Personally I've decided to let my badge roll over, but I just like that there's the option to refund in the case someone cannot make it to Fanime 2022.

As per a comment on Facebook from FanimeCon to a comment on their announcement post about 2021 virtual / 2022 rollover -

"Please send your refund request to feedback@fanime.com and include your registration information (full name, e-mail, and confirmation number)."

Personally I'm fine with advance funding a convention that has given so much to me over the years.  However I know that's absolutely not everyone and at this point you should have a choice.

That was before Fanime 2021 went down the drain. Someone mentioned on Discord that you can email them now requesting one.
