It’s kinda beyond saving, since announcing a concert at the Microsoft Theater now would be moot at this point.

Am I missing anything for musical events and concerts or is there only idols at AX this year? One year there was AKFG in the surrounding venues but I don't think I even saw any concerts around the area this year. There was also Miss monochrome but I didn't see her in the scheduling this time. No vocaloids like Luka, anything. I don't think I'm going last minute this year, I usually come for the music but not really for the idolfagging, or at least only the idolfagging. Oh I also did not see anything about raves at night. Neon district was great.
>>10193281
Sometimes it can not be helped. I understand having to save money, I went to a budget hotel 20 minutes away one year to save money. I would only be going just to hang out myself and I only have cosplays from previous years. Even then I still feel some regret in not going.
>>10193810

Miss Monochrome only happened because a company was trying to promote their MMD clone so ponied up the cash two years in a row for bringing over Hocchan.

Though with how much of a flop last year was due to 95% of the "concert" being people waiting for the Overlord premiere right after, and them probably not having much money to blow after fruitless spending the last two years, I doubt it'll happen again.

That said, iirc both times they announced activities with under a month to go (probably why her panels were in such tinyass rooms that were filled with premieres alone). So it COULD still happen. I'd much rather see Hocchan again than Aqours at least. At least she's actually relevant instead of being a cancer on the industry.

Getting a flight to Los Angeles this time of year is anything but cheap I’d imagine, and especially with trying to find a room this late in the season.

Does anybody have experience in buying drawing tablets or related accessories in AX? It's pretty common knowledge that you'll almost always find Exhibit Hall merch for cheaper prices online, I just wonder if there are any benefits to buying actual artistic hardware on site instead of say Amazon or what have you.

I wish every major event had a wristband distribution, honestly.

Anybody else bail on seeing the AMV Contest this year? I knew it was going to be a shitshow but now I kind of want to see the drama unfold firsthand. People are already finding Finalists that should be disqualified as per the rules, but the Coordinators are commiting to the foulup by stating "It would certainly be an embarrassment for us not to accept this well executed project into the 2019 Anime Expo AMV Competition".

>One of them won at Sakuracon, 2nd overall at Otafest, and has been confirmed to be the same entry and not simply a different video sharing a title.
>When people brought it to the attention of whoever is in charge, the tl;dr version of the response was that of course they were aware the entire time and that it was fine because "These creators work very hard on their AMV projects all throughout the year". Check the AX thread on the A-M-V.org forums for the full draft

If any of y'all need to go through union station at all, I recommend just taking the silver line rapid bus line from there. It drops you off at the same place as the blue/ expo lines and it picks you up closer to the convention center.

I'm not going to lie, I'm part of the problem. I bought tickets for both days but I'm considering selling my day 1 in favor of other events taking place on Friday.

Technically the novo has a total for the two days of 4800. Microsoft theater has a max of 7100 but didn't sell out (the mezzanine seats) so the ticket sales are probably similar

>> No.10197271

>>10197184
It's not a problem for fans to want to go both days, hell, any hardcore fan should want to go to any and every concert of their favorite act.

I'm guessing they'd just rather be able to brag that they completely sold out instead of what happened last year - where they sold out, opened up nosebleed seats, couldn't sell out of those, and ended up at like 90% sold instead.

Performing in a fully sold out venue in the US sounds a lot better than whatever total head count there is in a larger one that doesn't sell out. Not like anyone in Japan knows the difference between Staples Center, Microsoft Theater, or the Novo.

At the end of the day, all these concerts and guests are just Japanese executives taking turns putting their dicks on the table over who can bring the bigger and better act.
