Do you guys have a car because Carnitas El Momo is worth it if you decide to order Family Style by the pound (lb). Also, instead of lining up to order, people recommend calling the restaurant ahead of time to order your food. Mark Wiens and Munchies featured Carnitas El Momo in their videos by the way.

Since they opened a permanent location in Monterey Park, I do not know if they will send their food truck to Anime Expo. However, they have stands in Downtown Los Angeles.

>Carnitas El Momo serves tender, golden carnitas that are slightly sticky and sweetened by a seasoned lard. Impurities are skimmed off the cook before adding fresh lard, as well as secret ingredients that create Momo’s signature flavor. Carnitas El Momo offers pork skin, hog maw, and pork shoulder tacos, plus cheesy mulitas, tortas, and birria.

Heads up, if you're staying in a hotel, prepare to pay more than what was shown when you reserved the room through the AX hotel block. Apparently they added a bullshit fee called Destination Amenity Fee. I'm staying at the JW and it has added an additional $120.

I've seen the vendors in front of AX taking hot dogs directly out of unlined cardboard boxes that are sitting in the 100 degree heat, seriously not worth the risk of eating that shit. Also you've often got the same person handling filthy cash and cooking. It's less about them being Mexican and more about it being impossible to follow safe food preparation methods with that setup.
If you can walk half a mile or take a bus or uber there are thousands of places to eat in downtown, just don't be lazy and plan ahead so you don't wait until you're about to pass out before you start looking for somewhere to eat.

They already told you, $2,000 for a hotel room, $6,000 to try to get Asian cosplayers to fuck him. Which is way too much, just get an Asian hooker to dress up as your favorite cosplayer.

So your best idea of getting that sweet Asian cosplaying pussy is to go to AX? For $8,000 you can fly to Japan and get someone to have sex with you in whatever cosplay you want.

Considering Mika Akitaka is visiting Anime Expo again after 23 years, you think Anime Expo could have asked him to design some MAX mascot merchandise

>We are incredibly excited to announce that renowned Mechanical Designer, Illustrator and Game Creator Mika Akitaka will appear as a Guest of Honor at Anime Expo 2022!

>As we look back on and celebrate over 30 years of Anime Expo history, fans may remember that Akitaka-san previously attended the convention as a Guest of Honor way back in 1999! And, moreover, he will forever hold a very special place in Anime Expo history as the original creator of our iconic mascot MAX, who has been gracing the cover of the annual program guide since 2012.

>Commercially, Mika Akitaka is best known for his work as a mechanical designer for Sunrise, where he was involved in beloved projects such as Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory and City Hunter. Akitaka-san also illustrated the MS Girl series for Model Graphix Magazine.

Morons.
RWBY itself was always a crappy show, only reason anyone watched it was because it was released by RT, if they didn't release it no one would have heard of it. The only reason it is getting an anime is RT is crashing and this is their last ditch attempt to save their company. They get Japan to turn RWBY into a spinoff anime and hope enough cash comes in that WB doesn't just gut the company, which they should have done as soon as WB owned RT.

>> No.10775813

>>10775811
No, if anything I wouldn't have been surprised if an actual animation studio poached him from RT.

The only thing Monty was good at was fight animation, he knew how to compose a fight scene, have the fight flow and keep people engaged. This is an amazing skill for an animator to have, not a lot of animators or even live action directors can do this. At a certain point some other animation studio or gaming company would have probably come up to him and offered him a dream job, being the lead of an animation division as well as getting a huge pay increase.

Even if Monty was still alive and working at RT, RWBY would still be a crappy show. All Monty wanted to do was animate girls fighting stuff, everything else for the story was just filler. The first 2 season had no real story or plot, it was just random fight scenes that were connected my random scenes of people talking, and I say talking because the only VA in the show was Vic but RT fired him. So you would still have M&K writing for this show which having a AI writing a script from all the RWBY fan fiction would make a better story than what M&K could do.

>> No.10775816

>>10775811
>would RT be thriving if monty was still alive?
No, but this is because RT is a crappy company. They had a good starting product, Red vs Blue and grew from there. The problem is they just milked RvB for as long as possible. RWBY came along and that helped them but now RvB is dead and RWBY hasn't released anything in over a year. There was some little clip they showed for season 9 but that was months ago, there has been no official announcement.

Then you have Vicious Circle and Genlock. Remember Vicious Circle, probably not, it was a game they made, it was going to be the massive eSport game that was going to capture the world by storm and make RT a household name. Instead they sunk in millions if not into the tens of millions of dollars into it and scraped it after a few months. One YT had it where there were only 300 players online, and that is for a game that is being marketed as an online game.

Genlock was going to be their new anchor show, well it was an anchor but they dropped it when they were in the middle of the ocean and pulled the company down even further. The show got a new name from people, Generic because it was boring and there was nothing new or exciting about it. The problem was they spent a massive amount of money, another show got canceled because of it and the creator of the show was fired because he was also the head of RT animation and moved funds from other shows to Genlock.

So yeah even if Monty was around he wouldn't have saved RT.

So in other words it was a free-for-all where the last person alive wins. So it is Fortnight or PUBG but there is also a monster you have to fight. No wonder it failed, not even RT's fans wanted this.

Why didn't they work on making a RWBY game, you could call it RWBY; Vytal Tournament. Have it where you start off as a 4 person team and fight 4v4, if you win you move to the next round where it is a 2 person team that is 2v2, if you win again you go to the finals where it is 1v1. It is setup the same way the tournament was in the show. You also have it where the arena changes as well so have different environments that you fight in. You can also fight as different characters in the show. A game like this would already have the RWBY fan base and there are plenty of fans who would love to play as their favorite character.

You can also add single player options where you can have a MK style fights where you work up a ladder fighting different characters. There can also be a simulator that you could let you practice fighting different characters.

The other thing they could have done is turn RWBY into an MMORGP. You start in Beacon academy and from there you start fighting the Grimm. You can go solo or team up. Just start with that and then expand it. You would have plenty of fans who would easily start playing this.

Then you have other RT employees tweeting and telling fans that if they support Trump or are conservative or to the right of MSNBC to not watch their stuff.

Well they started to lose people because they didn't want to bother with RT.

Looking over the costume on Taobao itself (it's from 1/3 Delusion), my wild guess is that maybe some part of it is magnetic, the brooch pin's pin was deemed too sharp, or the wire in the hat poked out. In any case, someone at customs got incredibly anal and sent it back, because normally speaking DokiDoki should know what can or cannot be sent overseas.

Y'know, I just ordered a similar costume from 1/3 Delusions as well that has wiring in the giant ribbon bow. I hope it does not get sent back.

As an introvert who can play nice with extroverts well enough, I've noticed that we don't jump into conversations well which leads us to sitting around, listening and waiting for the conversation topic to naturally reach a point where we can jump in. Problem is that in a vibrant conversation, it goes so rapidly that those opening are far few and in-between. Eventually everyone in the group takes notice of who's talking and who's not. It can make you the odd one out. So, as soon as you have a point, jump onto it -- even if it leads the conversation in a new direction. If two or more people have talked past your entry point, drop it and get the next one. Or ask the speakers questions related to their discussion points. It can be a way to show interest. And probably the last one: introverts tend to find a safe spot and/or safe people to anchor down to whereas an extrovert might travel around the party and among groups. Try to hone that flexibility. Follow the old Hispanic tradition of saying hello to everyone at a function lmao

I'm thinking it's going to be the unremovable wristband type where you can only tighten it and some people are going to overtighten without understanding the consequences on Day 0.

Imagine buying any of this garbage merch just because it is at AX.
If you want to buy Hololive merch, at least buy the birthday stuff they put out, it is always better without fail from this event shit.

What's the best way to meet people at AX? This will be my second ever con. I'm a social retard with no friends but I was able to meet some people to hang out with at my last con while in line for a bar, but that felt like pure luck. What are the best social events at AX, preferably with drinking?

Tyvek are the ones you usually get at concerts. They're used in usps mailing bags, protective coveralls, building materials, and other things. It's waterproof and as long as you aren't actually trying to hulk it off or cut it, won't come off during normal wear

And like >>10777018 hinted at, if you don't get shit on your arm in general, you're not getting it on the band

AX has both a beer garden and a 21+ lounge, did you even look at the map/schedule yet?

>I'm poor
>Buys a $10 hot dog
Literally go to your local 99 cent store, buy a package of hot dogs and bacon, throw on some salt and spice packets stolen from a restaurant, apply mustard and/or ketchup (also stolen from a restaurant), and you get the same degree of unhealthy garbage for 1/60th of the price. Your problem is you lack initiative and intelligence, not funds.

I'm aware of those events but I wasn't sure if those are great places to meet people, or if there's something else people do to socialize. Schedules only tell me what's planned, not what people actually do.
