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 🤷🏿♀️😩
Finished submitting panels for the following cons:
Anime Weekend Atlanta
Also, have panels accepted for Anime Boston & Momocon, but still waiting to hear back on the others waitlisted before I post specifics for AB & currently having a scheduling snafu addressed for Momocon panels (had 2 scheduled at the same time). Otherwise, have 1 confirmed for AB & 3 for Momocon so far.
Besides that, cosplay line up for Zenkaikon. Since I staff it now I’m not worrying about doing panels but focusing almost solely on staffing duties (& some cosplay shenanigans):
Panels I’ll be presenting this year as well as a little blurb about them:
Crazy In Love…But Mostly Crazy: Yanderes in Anime (18+)
Friday, 1-2am Panel 2
Frequently when one hears the term yandere, one of the main characters that comes to mind is Yuno Gasai, but she’s only the tip of the iceberg in the vast sea known as anime of crazy obsessed characters that exist. Join dj Date Masamune as she recounts some of the wildest yandere characters she’s encountered in all her anime endeavors.
Yurei, Yokai, & School Girls
Sunday, 1-2pm Panel 4
This panel will take a look at Japanese myth & lure shown in various anime as well as list the various types of yurei, yokai, & oni that tend to pop up.
Forgot I never posted a list of the panels I’m hosting (& co-hosting in one case)…
Sit Down, STFU, & Play This J-RPG (Deluxe Edition)
Fri., 8/10 @ 8:15p – 9:15p, panel 6 (Rm152)
Final Fantasy: Love It or Hate It, They Still Have All Your $$$
Sat., 8/11 @ 9:45a – 10:45a, panel 1 (Rm202)
Hentai Boobs: Physics, Phuckery, & I Can’t Even (18+)
Sat., 8/11 @ 9:45p – 10:45p, panel 5 (Rm151B)
Co-hosting w/ Leads Kurenaikiba & CakeDaBlerd
Also, my cosplays for the weekend:
Also, swapped out Guts (Berserk) for Simon (Gurren Lagann) to make my life easier. 9 cosplays, 7 shoots attending, 5 hosting (of the 7), & 1 private shoot w/ fronds and you have yourself #CosplaySuicideGuaranteed XD
So, with ANext over that’s 2/3 cons down in this con rush leaving just Anime Mid-Atlantic (AMA).
Below are my panels:
& my cosplay line up:
Characters (left to right then top to bottom): Sakura Matou (FSN [derped & got a pic of her in her outfit from the HF movie but fcuk it]), Jonathan Joe☆ (JJBA), Iori Yagami (KoF), Relius Clover (BlazBlue), & Auron (FFX)
Already in a mad dash to.finish packing by tonight & doing whatever minor panel work I need to do before I leave Thursday.
Anyway, let the prep for the final con of the unholy trio continue~ 🙃
Got panels for both AMA & (surprise surprise) Otakon this year~~
Seriously, even though I personally don’t think ppl should treat Otakon as “ITS A BIG FREAKIN’ DEAL!” when it comes to paneling, this is the first year that breaks the ‘every other year’streak I’ve had of only getting a panel accepted every other year, with 2013 being the first year I got anything accepted. Regardless, it’s an interesting one to go with of all the things I submitted but I’ll take it nonetheless.
Anyway, I got Final Fantasy: Love it or Hate it, They Still Have All Your $$$, & actually have another waitlisted: Sit Down, STFU, & Play This JRPG (Deluxe Edition). No idea the likelihood of it being accepted, but that’s something to note.
As for Anime Mid-Atlantic (AMA), I originally got 5 panels accepted but due to wanting better times for 2, I currently have 3 confirmed with 2 trying to still be fit into the schedule somewhere. Anyway, they are:
Bleach: The Final Farewell – Friday, 4pm, Panel 4
Yurei, Yokai, & School Girls – Saturday 8pm, Panel 2
Pass the Haterade!: Most Hated Characters in Anime – Sunday, 12:30am, Panel 4 (18+)
Hyped about the Pass the Haterade one in particular, but generally glad to have anything. I’m especially happy I didn’t miss the panel submission deadline this year like the previous one >_>;
Anyway, just had those quick updates & post as things come up ^.^
