Nope, I've got something worse.

So we were talking about Otakon, right?

On a tangential note, why are this thread and the general convention thread in Anime and Manga? Shouldn't they be in the Fandom area?

I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Otakon is targeted towards anime and manga, so it's where it should be. Convention General Thread is primarily composed of anime convention stuffs, but really ought to be in Off Topic, if it really is supposed to be general.

Nobody would find them in Fandom (people wouldn't normally think to look there, I think they were in Fandom at one point), and when con threads were in Off Topic, people couldn't find 'em. It was decided that Anime and Manga is the best place to leave con threads after all (if it's something like Comic Con, that's fine in Off Topic).

If Funimation has a panel there, will somebody here bug 'em (as politely as possible, of course) about Eva 3.0's BD/DVD status, assuming they don't bring it up themselves?

I'm assuming Viz's Sailor Moon panel(s?) won't be anything we don't know, but I wonder if they have a rough estimate of when a Sailor Moon Crystal bluray would be out (1st season or not, assuming it ends next Summer, maybe sometime Fall-Winter 2015)?

I certain that many people will bring it up so, you needn't worry.

Plus, last Otakon, Funi said they were re-releasing Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, and Escaflowne in 2014..... 1 year later and we haven't heard another word on the matter.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Whoa, that's pretty bad. With the non-Eva titles, maybe they're having negotiation troubles with the respective companies overseas?

Oh man. So Otakon is capped at 35K, which is more people than we had last year. Pre-registration is around 31K right now and doesn't close until midnight. A ton of people who planned to register at-con are going to have a very bad day on Friday morning.

The strange thing is, I'll bet there will be people who won't be able to go because of one of the following scenarios:

1) They pre-registered, but couldn't get a hotel room.

2) They got a hotel room, but couldn't register at con.

I think we should lock them in a room together and have them fight to the death.

Yup, Trying to get a hotel during a particular Con can be quite the frustrating experience indeed.
That's why you always plan out everything weeks, even months in advance.

On a side note, I actually never been to Otakon before. What's it like? I only ever saw videos
of the convention from past years.

These three shows are exactly what I've been waiting for (well, blu-ray releases, I already have the DVDs). Don't disappoint us, Funi!
