Word on the street is that the Marriott properties will have floor by floor sweeps at 10pm on top of placing security at the room elevators. They will have zero tolerance on room parties. If they hear or catch you with more people than the max, they will evict on the spot. Be careful, it seems covid has the hotels freaking out over room parties.

If anyone wants to read ramblings of how or why behind this:

- Aniplex is bringing some of the bigger and ONLY JP guests of the con.

- Aniplex knows they WILL hit capacity no matter what. Demand outstrips supply, there is no fair way to distribute the tickets no matter what route they choose. This is the easiest and costs least amount of man hours between them AND attendees.

- Addressing the issue of past years where people would line up hours and hours in advance...only to make it to the front and be told the room is full. Sometimes it'd be 90% full already from clearing dodgers and Premier fans and the general fans who wasted 4 hours waiting meters from the door are told to leave (ah the Rascal Bunny movie).

- Less staff this year due to COVID policies. Aniplex is not having any volunteer staff who can help organize a super long line for them this year.

- There will be folks on-site who will be upset when they find out you had to have a ticket to get in because "they were never told about it"

- There will be no-shows. Perhaps the panel will let in some standby people. Let the standby line wars commence.

If you are new to conventions and follow rules like a beta sure. You could just sit all the way in the back away from view and they won't even bother you. Or just stand behind the black curtains on the side and people will assume you are working there. And if they do dare ask you to leave just say you are staff and working for whatever random department. You could even take the shortcuts that are reserved for staff/and guests by simply walking trough them. Everyone just assumes you work there. Just tell anyone that tries to stop you from going where staff shortcuts are located that you are with access control it's not hard. You guys actually think this con knows what the fuck is going on when it is quite literally a clusterfuck. Anyone who has worked/volunteered before knows how incredibly lax things are. There's no communication at all with the people actually on the ground working with people who are higher up. So they won't know if you are actually supposed to be there or not. They won't even bother to call someone higher up because they won't even get a response since the heads of these areas are always busy and doing more important shit etc. Works at other cons too but ax is the easiest since they actually don't know how to properly run a con of this size.

Good! I'm glad people are finally waking up to see that working a convention that treats you like shit for free is not fun at all. Hopefully in the long run, a reduction in staff also means a reduction in the con overall and will likelg force AX to go back to Anaheim.

>There is no shortage of people who want to work for free for them.
It's all fun and games until you test positive for COVID from getting it at a convention that you slaved your life away at. Your options are to isolate in your hotel room, miss the entire con (if you're staying by yourself, which I doubt the majority do at AX), and screw over the volunteer dept. Or you're forced to leave DTLA and go home to isolate, miss the con, and your hotel roommates now have to test since they are a close contact. In the end, no one is going to have fun at this AX whether you're a volunteer, staff, or attendee.

>> No.10774119

Covid symptons don't show up until 2-14 days. Then to top it off most people don't show symptoms. Nobody is gonna miss out on anything you doomer. By the time people actually start showing symptoms or get tested the con will be over by then.

>> No.10774122

Chill out, you just made up a nearly impossible scenario. Yes, it's completely possible to catch COVID at AX while working for free at your favorite anime company that underpays and overworks its staff regularly, but no one is going to catch it at AX and test positive before the con is done. If they do test positive, it's because they caught it before setting foot into LACC. At most, people will go home, find out they're positive, but no one is under obligation to report to the booth other than out of good faith. In the end, people are going to have fun at AX whether they're volunteer, staff, or attendee, even if they get sick afterwards.

And no, there will still be no shortage of people who are willing to work for Aniplex for free even if someone catches and dies from COVID from attending one of their panels this year. I can guarantee it.

Live Programming 1: LACC Petree Hall
Live Programming 2: JW Marriott Platinum Ballroom
EXCEPTIONS: Room clearing WILL occur prior to a Ticketed Event (i.e. concert, AMV Competition, Masquerade, etc.), fashion show, and 18+ content tracks.

In the event either room reaches capacity two separate lines will form outside: 1 General Attendee Line and 1 Premier Fan Line.
As Attendees leave the room a corresponding number of Premier Fans will be allowed entry first. Attendees in the General Attendee Line will be allowed in when the Premier Fan Line is empty.
The following rooms WILL be cleared between Panel Events:

Live Programming 3: LACC 408AB
Live Programming 4: LACC 411 (Theater)
Live Programming 5: LACC 404AB
Workshops 1: 403B

These responses are why covid will be with us until the day humanity becomes extinct. Instead of taking the necessary precautions, just fucking yolo everything and get people sick.

I still don't understand the necessity of having these massive in-person conventions when the anime industry, just like the gaming industry, can run their stuff smoothly online. Don't be bitching if some AX volunteer or red vest catches covid and dies. Then we'll be back to "why the fuck did they have a con when it's still not safe?"

>I still don't understand the necessity of having these massive in-person conventions
Because they are industry conventions, not something for the fans. Some exclusive trailer that is being shown at a con can be posted on YT but if you do it at a con you can get hundreds if not thousands of people to pay to see it.

The only reason to go to con's is to meet one of the guests, have an actual panel or the AA, other then that everything else can be done online. The dealers room isn't worth it as you can usually find the same stuff online for a lot less.

Never have I been so enraged at something. The only reason you would think this is because someone ripped out your entire mouth and could never eat anything ever again and to be fed by a feed tube. Bread is amazing and comes in so many types, not just taste but textures as well. Bread is one of the greatest things, all you need to make it is flour and water, yes yeast is used but if you didn't have any you could still make it with just flour and water.

Bread is found throughout the world, each country or culture has their own take on it. When you travel, going to a bakery is one of the things you have to do, you get to try a simple little piece of a country's culture.

Being part of a podcast called Trash Taste makes sense because he has no idea what even bad taste is let alone good taste.

Because when you have to do a weekly podcast that is just the same three people you start to run out of things to talk about. They do have guests but that is more of something they do once in a while and not every week.

Take Joe Rogan, he has a guest every week to discuss something. So you might like one guest but the next guest is one that you want to listen to. Even if you are not a fan of the guest you have it where they are not talking about the same thing over and over.

Honestly I'm beginning to suspect the parties are some sort of misunderstood answer to the constant complaints they probably get from room parties, most specifically the Westin. I think the logic is that if you open up seven billion party venues and press the weebs into the actual con center, they will opt to actually go to the con parties because all parties are of course equals and no variance can be found between an intimate hotel room party with buddies where drinks are provided and a loud concert framed as a party with $14 cups of watered down beer surrounded by socially awkward randoms.

This is stupid, no one cares why you like anime or why you want to cosplay as a character. If you are black and want to cosplay as Sailor Moon then go for it.

Also, Amazing Black Women of Anime, that panel has to be a joke considering there are no MC or supporting characters who have been black women in or have ever worked in anime. you could say Amazing White Women of Anime and the answer would be the same.

This isn't true. It depends on how good your cosplay is. I see tons of pics of black cosplayers, the issue with black goku isn't the black. It's the Goku. There's 6 million of him at every con.

Pretty much. You might talk to some people about how they made their outfit or do specific group photoshoots but that is about it.

it depends on how they are run but yeah for the most part you just gather around with other cosplayers and someone shout outs picture opportunities like "ok we need everyone dressed as this character here while doing this pose". shit like that.
so other than that, it really comes down to how social of a person you are if you want to talk to other cosplayers. otherwise, you'll probably have a bad time.
personally, i like them since it gives me an easy way to talk to cosplayers with similar interests and possibly getting their social media info.

>> No.10774639

I'm sure people do but not because just that they're black, simply because they aren't canon-looking. I only care about canon cosplay and only go up to people if I think they look like the "real" version of the character.

I did that with my friend so many years ago thinking the line would be no issue, but we ended up waiting 6-7 hours in line, only to enjoy the exhibit hall for one hour. On top of that, the line wrapped around so fucking much, we were led through the streets of LA where the local ghetto people were just watching us wait in a line all day in the blistering hot California sun.

This will be my first AX con. Will I find any merchandise from Yuru Yuri? It's kind of not as mainstream but I'm hoping to find anything related to it.

>> No.10774866

Why do artists charge so much for prints? $20 for a print is fucking insane. Why aren't wallscrolls/tapestries a thing in the west? It'd make much more sense to pay $30 for a tapestry as they're bigger, last longer, and wont rip easily. Are prints just super expensive to make or something?

>> No.10774868

>I want to eat your pancreas

>> No.10774869

I wouldn't go to AX expecting to find merchandise aside from the big flavors of the season. Even then, a lot of the merch is bootlegged, overpriced, meh, nothing you couldn't just get online.

On the flipside, because most booths only cater to what's popular, if you DO find something less mainstream like this, it's like finding a diamond in the rough.

When in doubt, find an artist you like in the artist alley, commission them for some fanart. Plenty of them do commissions over the weekend and have them ready by the last day.

>> No.10774872

I have a small round trash can filled with bulk anime stickers (though I screen them for inappropriate content first after a surprise) and let them grab one when they do well on assessments, improve their grade, etc. I have a second one filled with candy and snacks (Mexican candy, Pocky, etc.) but I relent on that one more so because my coworkers ride me for the sugar rushes they deal with.

I'm thinking of switching my passes, right now I use my alma mater mascot plushes as bathroom, office, counselor passes. Wouldn't mind finding some anime-related plushes that fit the theme of those specific places to replace my current passes. I'm also trying to create a lounge area in my classroom and would like to find some nice art to put in the background and hopefully get them interested in drawing stuff other than their OC characters.

>> No.10774874

When will people stop asking about merch in cons. When they can just order it online. Every fucking thread since the existence of time we have retards asking the same exact same shit. Asking about merch they can simply get online for cheaper anyway. Is it mental illness?

>> No.10774879

I think it's pretty simple. They spent all this money for their badge, they've been waiting for several weeks, they're probably really excited to go. Part of that excitement is hopefully finding some sort of cool merchandise for the series or franchises they like.

As this anon said, this is their first AX. They don't know that most of the booths bootleg their shit, or upsell after-market figures, or aren't even related to anime in the slightest.

And to be honest, although it's a better idea to get merch online, it's possible that maybe anon missed the pre-order timing for a figure they wanted? Going to Anime Expo could be a good opportunity to scout out said figure at an after-market price. Better than not having the figure at all.

>> No.10774880

You will, it's still pretty popular. I'd say you can find a lot for most popular series even if they aren't normieshit flavor of the month anime. There just won't be a lot.

Feel free to explain why a piece of paper is worth $20. It's not even overcharging for art since most have fair prices for other merch. What am I missing that's worth so much about prints?

Sometimes the bigger industry booths have exclusives and/or bonuses and freebies. I’ve gotten some nice posters either for free or with small purchases from company booths.
Also if you go on day 4 a lot of vendors will discount stuff, you can get some good deals on things like manga.
I don’t recommend buying figures though unless it’s direct from the company’s booth (GSC, Koto, etc) but you’ll still get a better price and more selection online.

Life stories about how show helped them cope with mental illness disguised as questions are way worse than shipping ones that are at least about the characters.
