AX & Ota Canceled

It was announced last week but Anime Expo is canceled for the year.

Today Otakon has also announced cancelling for this year.

Not complaining but announcing for posterity sake. However, with these 2 cons canceled my July is now super free, so back to getting neck deep in gaming & photography 😅

Momocon Officially Canceled

Momocon made a statement officially announcing they’re canceling their 2020 event as well as their 2021 dates.

Again, super expected, best move to make, but sucks for the vendors, artists, event planners, & everyone else who relies on conventions for a stable source of income or pour a lot $$$ into making it happen.

Regardless, stay safe out there, friends.

AWA 2020 Panels

Panels I got accepted so far for AWA this year:

  • Figures to the Max!; CGC – Panel Room 103, 10/30/2020, 4:45pm – 5:45p
  • Pass the Haterade!: Most Hated Anime (& Gaming) Characters; CGC – Panel Room 103, 10/30/2020, 10:45pm – 11:45p
  • Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition (side order of J-RPGs); CGC – Panel Room 104, 10/31/2020, 5pm – 6:30p
  • Crazy & In Love…But Mostly Crazy: Yanderes in Anime; CGC – Panel Room 102, 10/31/2020, 9:30pm – 10:30p
  • Final Fantasy: Love It or Hate It, They Still Have All Your $$$; CGC – Panel Room 104, 11/1/2020, 2:30pm – 3:30p

Of course, jury’s still out if it’s still happening. It’s way later in the year so I’m more hopeful…but looking at how sh*t a myriad of things are in dealing with quarantine efforts & decreasing the spread of the virus in the States who knows 🤷🏿‍♀️😩

ANext Cancelled

It was announced a few days ago now but the con I was going to in June, AnimeNEXT, was cancelled. With that cancellation my next 3 months of cons have all been cancelled & now I’m just waiting on (a) Momocon’s new dates or inevitable cancellation, (b) to see if my July cons (AX & Otakon) will be cancelled as well.

I don’t know if I’ve stated it here but I fully expect, at least on the con scene, things to be cancelled throughout the Summer & the only cons I’m quasi hopeful are going to happen is AWA & beyond; i.e., October/November cons & later.

Anyway, not complaining but want to get back to regularly updating this blog as much as possible & general awareness.
