Koolness, Well i hope you deside to come it happens on the last weeknd of may so heres some luck for ya.


Okay, I registered to go. I will try to ask for that Friday off. I technically have over 120 hours of vacation time left, but they chopped off a lot of it when the quarter went over. I will bring my camera, and I will wear a red shirt :wink:


Post a picture of that red shirt, um, redshirt.


If you can try to get Thrusday off cuz thats the Per-Con sents you have already Registered. Also Thrusday is when some of the people get together to eat and hang out before the con happens. THen you can get your Badge early instead of waiting for it on Friday.

These are the times they have set, they don’t have a Shedule fully up yet of whats going on at what time. But, On Friday Nights and Saturday nights there is a Rave Party that happens at like 1ish and goes on for a bit so you mite not get much sleep. If you do go please remeber people don’t mind you beening there but wash…we had a couple of people from before that didn’t and it wasn’t nice.

Pre Con (Thrusday Night): 6 pm until Midnight

Friday : 8:30 am until 2:30 am Saturday

Saturday : 8:30 am until 2:30 am Sunday

Sunday : 8:30 am until 6:00 pm Convention Closes


Yes, we don’t want any dirty cons! Scrubba dub dub!

YES! Scrubb!


So got any pictures of what you’ll be wearing to the con?


I did ask for the Friday off but chances are looking slim now.

Edit: For Thurs and Friday I will be wearing a simple red shirt, hehe, and then Sat and Sun one with a red shirt with a cool silver dragon on it. I am not skilled enough to make a cosplay outfit, and I could not even begin to guess what anime character I match the best too.


I am charging my camera, getting a red shirt ready, and taking a nice long shower tonight. Not sure when I can get off work tomorrow, but I will get my pass for sure.


I will post a link or something to the pictures I take soon. I have 12 from Thursday night. A couple events were canceled due to panel person not showing up and panel person having their car towed. However, I did get to partake in the Anime Endurance Test. My mind cannot unsee what I saw, and NEVER WATCH DEFENDERS OF THE UNIVERSE. DON’T DO IT!


Gonna make it out alive bro?


It is over. TAN should consider making an appearance at the next one. There were only 7070 people attending this one over the 3 day weekend :woohoo:

I saw some voice actors: Went too Richard Ian Cox and Spike Spencer’s panels and saw Keiko Han, Noriko Hidaka, Kazuhiko Inoue, Trish Ledoux, Chika Sakamoto, Chirstina Vee, and Kappei Yamaguchi.

I attended Koichi Tsunoda’s panel on the current anime market.

I saw various panels from Godzilla, Japanese language, Space battleship Yamato, etc.

I have several pictures to put up; I just don’t know where. It would tricky to do it here on this post, and I don’t know a good place where I can just link a folder. I will mess with it. I am not in any pictures though as I did not know anyone there personally. Maybe next year.
