View Full Version : CNA Anime All Night - What exactly goes on?

I was just wondering, What exactly goes on at the Anime All Night besides Karaoke?

nothing interesting. nothing at all.


... ok, so i've only been in there for like 5 minutes, and heard everything second hand and am biased. but as far as i can tell:
a) it's not "all night"
b) they play both dubbed and subbed random anime, but if it's dubbed you can't hear it over the people in there, and if it's subbed you can't SEE it over the people's heads, so it really doesn't matter...

anyway, i'm not going. :P

ah..that sucks. This is gonna be my first year going, I went to AN in may. I just wanted to understand what went on so I know whether to waste my time or not :D

Is the karaoke good though?

I heard the same thing that Xiola heard about it not being all-night. Friends of mine figured they could watch anime all night and therefore didn't need to worry about getting home....which meant they ended up wandering the streets of Toronto after the thing was over because they missed their chance to get home. They were a little worse for wear when the convention opened on Sunday.

The anime truly is random....I ended up staying for a couple episodes of GTO and some karaoke and such, but it was a little odd seeing random episodes that weren't always in chronological order. I still had a good time, but I didn't stick around long.

The set up of the place isn't ideal for accomodating a crowd that needs to be able to read the subtitles and such, so if you plan to seriously watch anime there, get there early and find a good seat or you'll rather regret it.

I agree... when I went (2001) I wasn't on the first couple of elevators down... so when I got downstairs, I had a better seat sitting at the bar.

How was the karaoke last year? Were they harsh on people who couldn't complete all of the song?

Honestly, all I remember of the karaoke I saw was three things:

1) Erilan singing Butterfly. Quite the first impression.
2) Someone singing eX Dream...he tried valiantly, but couldn't quite get it right. ^_^ Major points for trying.
3) Gundamo. That is all I need to say.

HE HE HE.... if only I was able to come... I was at the Andy Hallet kareoke (<--- damn can't spell it tonight). It was very nice when he helped strugling singers by doing back-up for them...

So.... DDR songs are available to sing huh?

is there a comp. or just for fun?

In 2001, they had prizes... I didn't see who won it (had to get home)....

yum karaoke :D :D I luuuuv karaoke, but i'll prolly be so nervous/embarassed to sing lol. Do I have to bring my own cds and lyrics, or just cds and they will have a computer?

I never done something like this, I was just hoping to go around the con a bit at night to see the night life some what than head back to my room if there was nothing going on and just kick back with who ever wants to hang out and just play games and hang out, but if there's a dance I'm going and going to try and do some raving and get people to do the same or atleast have fun.

they mentioned on this website somewhere that u need to bring your own music if they don't have it...

All i remember from past year is sitting in the elevator, for about 7 hours scaring the hell outta people, then going to the top floor and dropping candies down the crack and listening for the faint *tink* and the bottom...
oh lack of sleep makes you do many silly things.

you mean there was anime at the anime convention?

08-12-2003, 03:45 PM
:( when I went in 2001 I had alot of fun... but that's probably b/c Justin, myself and the rest of out crew were sitting at the bar making stupid jokes and laughing our asses off b/c we were half asleep.... but that's besides the point! ^_^
I would have loved to go last year... but things didn't work out. :(

If anyone actually *goes* this year someone has to tell me how it was. ^_^

I might stop by Friday night just so I can entertain the masses with another song, like I do every year. :bigtu:
