Good afternoon old schoolers!

I do hope you are all well and following shelter-in-place ordinances if they are in effect where you reside.  We are continuing preparations for the gathering and our panel, however with rumblings that the California shelter-in-place ordinance will last between 8-12 weeks, we do believe that FanimeCon 2020 will be postponed until 2021.  That's fine though, as we'll be there on the other side of this to continue our annual FanimeCon events. 

Nothing is certain until an official announcement is made but at this time it's pretty much inevitable.  Once an official announcement is made, we will be sure to update the relevant initial threads for the convention programming we host.

Continuing with a weekly anime OP or ED, I thought we could all use a modern classic most of us are familiar with.

Here’s hoping! If things fall through, I’m planning on trying to post some updated cosplay photos the day of the meetup. If we can’t do it in person, we can do it virtual, right?

Waiting until the last moment to cancel is the smart move for everyone involved.  I don't know how anyone can think otherwise.

My speculation. It’s not a smart move for everyone. It’s a smart move and potentially the only move for the convention. Consider you might still have people planning on coming from out of state for this convention. Consider the usual age range attendees are for this convention. Is it really a good idea to wait until the last minute for these people to have their money, schedules surrounding attending this convention. How is this going to work for attendees if they don’t cancel the con until after cancellation deadline for hotels is past? I don’t know what solutions the convention organizers have for these things especially when you consider that this is happening on top of their own very real lives and dealing with how whats happening might be affecting them.

As far as I’m concerned whats responsible for maintaining the convention as a whole might not be the same thing as whats responsible for their fans. And since this is a con for fans by fans that’s why I wonder how this will shake out. We probably won’t see peak Coronavirus for a week or two and then it’s not going away immediately so to have a convention in May would be hugely negligent. I don’t think they will and I don’t think the state of California would even let them at that point. To masquerade like it’s a possibility to hold it is just prolonging some people’s wait for the inevitable cancellation but I worry more for those people who don’t see what should be the writing on the wall.

Hi! I’ve submitted the gathering application and am aiming for Saturday around 4:00pm. I’ll update again once we’re approved.

Also we are keeping an eye out for Fanime announcements regarding the COVID-19 situation. If Fanime is still held Memorial Day weekend, please be aware that people may not feel comfortable standing too close during group photos. Because of this, please especially make sure it’s okay with another cosplayer if you want to pose holding hands, hugging, picking someone up, etc. (It’s possible we might discourage this behavior, we are still deciding.)

This is truly an unusual situation, but we will do our best to make this gathering still work. In the meantime please try to stay safe and make smart decisions, not just for your own health but for the health of others.

Hi everyone!! I hope everyone's staying safe during this extremely weird time! I just found out my submission for the gathering didn't go through properly the first time when I applied for it on March 3rd  so I just resubmitted it again assuming the con will still happen??
