Katsucon. It was terrible. There was another con that in hindsight I really should have gone to instead. I'm upset that Katsucon will be my last con experience until at least July.

>> No.10372371

It was way too crowded indoors this year. People with stupid large cosplays taking up too much space and the colder weekend weather than years past kept everyone indoors. Magfest was infinitely more fun and so much less stressful (we did have unseasonably warm mag weather to be sure). Those were my last 2 cons and I'm tired of the Gaylord

>> No.10372399

I have never attended an anime-centric con

But if comic cons count, Its San Diego Comic Fest, it got held RIGHT before the CA govt started banning crowd gatherings

>> No.10372407

I agree, it was way too crowded. I also made the grave mistake of attending and staying through the masquerade which had to have been 4 hours long with nearly 100 skits (WHYYY??). I wanted to tear my hair out after the 50th LoveLive dance number. There was even two of the same song. MAGFest was definitely better so I'm swearing off Katsucon forever.

I set most of my AX budget aside to spend at the AA because I've bought some of my favorite shit there, and it felt like every booth was selling only MHA prints and $20 plastic charms.
The guests were awful and the volunteers/staff were worse.

I'd like to see more diversity too, but what's AX supposed to do about it? They can't really control what the artists bring to sell.

That's not where the name comes from, it comes from the physical structure of the virus.

San Japan 2019. I had a good time; the panels with the dude that drew La Blue Girl were fun, the retro vidya room was comfy, the other panels were good as well. My only gripe is that the DJ sucked during the one night I went to the rave. Also, seeing a panel at San Japan have a line as long as an A-Kon line was terrifying, but also depressing since it was for the speed dating panel.

What's funny is that last year I was complaining that I got burnt out by going to too many cons in one year, so I was like "in 2020 I should probably go to way fewer cons so that I don't get this burnt out again", and of course now there are no cons to be had.

>> No.10372551

I'm mainly into [email protected] when it comes to idol music, am not a Triggerfag, attended the Pokemon movie premiere and disliked it, and am not into BNHA.
Small Pokemon related tangent is that I also had a terrible autograph experience with Rika Matsumoto which I'm still salty over. Volunteers capped her line at 25 people AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE even though I was one of the 75 people who had a guaranteed autograph ticket. They said it was a request from the Pokemon guests but jesus fucking christ.
Yeah, I meant official merch exclusive to AX. For example, the Atlus booth's Jack Frost stuff since they only sell them at AX. I don't really buy non-exclusive stuff at AX anymore since online prices are usually better.
I honestly predicted that this year would be a tad bit more diverse given the releases of other fotm shit like FF7R, the new FE, and P5R since AX19. But I guess we are spared from seeing BNHA, Fate and Kimetsu no Yaiba everywhere this year due to Corona-chan!
Yeah, I admit it wasn't really a valid complaint exclusive to AX. I don't think a jury system like Fanime's would work out for AX given the demand either. Like you said, no one can control what artists will bring to sell. Just gotta deal with it and hope that the occasional niche stuff appears.

AX 2019. It's the only con I go to every year and the first time I was able to wear a handmade costume. I was looking forward to making something better this year, especially with some new announcements bringing back the fans to a very old show but... it went the way of the dodo.

That was the only reason I even went last year. I was the last guy to buy a ticket on the Day 3 concert and I was lucky to buy a Day 2 ticket from someone but it was in the standing room. I was scared as shit when the earthquake happened.

Other than that, I spent the entire con walking around or in my hotel room smoking weed.

Same on Anime Weekend Atlanta, I wish I would have gone to Holmat or Katsucon before all this. It feels like forever since I’ve been to a con.

>> No.10374790

It's sad that we'll never get to enjoy these kinds of events as conventions either go bankrupt, become an online convention (using VR chat, Twitch streaming for panels, etc.), or evolve into social distancing conventions were 300 admission badges will be sold in total but only 50 attendees can be inside the convention center at a time based on what time and date you select when you purchased the badge.

Youmacon 2019
It was the first anniversary of me going to cons since my first one was Youma '18 and it was quite nice overall. The people mover is kinda shit but a couple bucks to avoid walking or taking Uber between the two locations was cool, I still have the slip in my wallet. I met someone cool who I later hung out with and then kind of fell out with, politics is a disease I tell you. I stayed at a hostel which was a first, I'd recommend that one, it was just called Hostel Detroit. I also showed off an Inuyasha cosplay I made for my sister, which got more attention than the Mako from Kill La Kill cosplay I did for myself, but oh well.
My next one was going to be Animatic Con in Ohio but it was just after the virus hit. Now my next one is JAFAX here in Michigan, I'm gonna go with an old work buddy.

AX 2018 and 2019 is only cons I've been to, and after the first time I only came back to cosplay and for the atmosphere. I felt there wasn't much to "do". Went to a couple panels but for the most part just walked around and took pictures with people.

And yet even tho it sucked I still miss it :/ Had a fun cosplay in the works for this year.
