Forums and why you may not be able to post

We've had a massive deluge of spam recently. As such, we've needed to institute some precautions for the time being. All Russian, Chinese, Korean, and Hong Kong domains are blocked. A good portion of the IP address blocks from RIPE have been completely blocked. I know a few people on the forums are in those blocks. If I can figure out a way to make an exception, I'll do so. Until we find a better solution though this will stand. Also, we've had to clean out the forum users of bots entries...if you signed up and never posted before, you may have been deleted, and I am sorry about that. Also I'm sorry if I accidentally deleted you regardless. This was some very bad shit we had to deal with, and I do apologize if you need to sign back up.

Anime Expo 2008 Report Day 3 and 4

Well, finally after a lot of false starts and procrastination, I've finally completed the Anime Expo 2008 report for days 3 and 4. It was a fun time this year, and I can't wait for next year. Let's hope it'll be another good year for us all.

Anime Expo 2008 Report Day 2

Work has been a living Hell the past few weeks, but now I've got some time to try and finish off the Anime Expo Report. For your inspection, I give you Day 2 of the report.

I would post a link to the forums, but we're not sure we're going to keep running those to be honest. More info on that as it comes available.

Anime Expo 2008 Days 0 and 1

Anime Expo this year was actually, despite all situations that could have gone bad (or in some cases, worse), actually a lot of fun. So, with that in mind, I will get this done or die trying. I've completed the first part of the Anime Expo 2008 report which encompasses days 0 through 1. I hope to get it finally done before the end of the month, then I hope to get the rest of my to do stuff done the first week or so of November. Let's see if I can keep to this schedule, heh.

If you have anything you want to talk about concerning this article, feel free to to drop by the boards and speak your mind. CLOSED

Anime Expo 2008

Anime Expo 2007, despite all the bands, cool guests that attended, and other goings on, can only be called one thing: an unmitigated disaster of galactic proportions. There is no escaping this, there is no denying this, there is no justifying this. Complete and utter; the destruction was phenomenal. It couldn’t have been worse had it been planned. That being said, when the new site was announced, which was the L.A. Convention center, it received the same lukewarm response that the announcement of the Disney Land Convention Center did back in ’99. In essence the, the culmination of a comedy of errors that was only funny to sick fucks like myself and possibly Megatron.

Fanime Report 2008 Days 3 and 4

I've finally completed the Fanime report by finishing up day's 3 and 4. You can start reading from the beginning or you could just skip to the days in question.

Comments can be made in the usual place. CLOSED

Now I just need to finish up the rest on my "To Do" list, heh.

Fanime Report 2008

Fanime 2008 was, overall, a pretty enjoyable and oddly restfull experience. I’d go so far as to say even low key. It doesn’t share the same tireless energy as ACEN, the frenzied pace of Anime Expo, or the overwhelming (even disorientating) abundance of Comic Con, but it has its share of things to do; all of which are fun. However, Fanime always has this tone of being extremely laid back, or as Gensao put it, “It’s a three day con spread over four days.” This is true, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. One doesn’t NEED to be going from place to place at mach speeds of over 9000 all the goddamn time. Sometimes it’s best to sit around and chill with a few thousand people and meander around from place to place in no particular rush. Only thing that would have made it better is if they had a bar right outside of the dealer’s hall and registration or served beer at the Maid Café. Hey, that’s an idea: a Maid wet bar. No, not wet nurse, wet bar! Sheesh, bunch of pervs out there, I swear. Wait, I’m the only one writing here. FUCK!

Acen 2008

This article has been consolidated into one from its original two part format to allow for easier reading.

Anime Central 2008 was by far the absolute best convention I have ever been to.

Yes, that statement deserved its own paragraph. It was that good. Hell, it was fucking awesome…probably the most rewarding convention experience I’ve ever had. No, not quite as good as sex, but the feeling lasted far longer, heheh. I can’t say enough good things about it…I just wish I had the time to do everything I wanted to do. Outside of that, there’s really nothing I have bad to say about it.

Initially I wasn’t really planning on going to any other conventions outside of Fanime and AX until I was invited to ACEN by Cap`n_moonie from the chat channel I frequent, #TenchiFF on the aniverse network. At the time I wasn’t too sure about heading back that direction, but I checked my finances and my leave time, and found I could easily accommodate that. Also, I’d never met ol’ moonie and I was looking forward to that. Originally another member of the channel, aisu, was supposed to join us, but she was unfortunately unable to make it. It helped I wound up sharing the room with moonie and a few others so I could cut down on costs considerably…plane flights are rather expensive after all. It also helped that I had applied for a press pass and received one.

Anime Expo 2007

Originally published as four separate articles, one for each day; they were compiled into one in order to allow for continual reading.

So…Anime Expo 2007.

Yeah, that about says it all if you were there. Going through the various blogs, forums, reposted emails, and what-have-you, the consensus was pretty much on the order of: What the flying fuck, over? For my own personal experience, this year’s convention has the most unique dichotomy; it was both the very best convention I’ve been to…and the very very worst. It was so bad, in fact, that I don’t know if I’m going back next year.

My reports on Anime Expo this year are going to be broken up into a few overlapping categories. I’m going to do a day by day report, a report on the SKIN concert, a report on the Transformers movie showing, and finally, a report on all the shit that went on this year that really REALLY fucked it all to Hell.

Fanime 2007...the year of Anime Hell

Ah, Fanime 2007. This year, the plan was to attend the convention for a full two days. Fortunately this year I had everything prepared well in advance, requiring only the purchase of a couple of 80/120 minute tapes for the video taping of the Masquerade. Having done this two weeks earlier, I had absolutely no problems in leaving for Ceres to spend a day with Mayhem before heading up to the convention. We watched Pirates that night…f’n great movie, I thought.
