View Full Version : Just me.. or was AnimeNext boring? >.o

Hey everyone~
I'm not one to say that things 'suck' too often, but honestly, I think AnimeNext this year was really quite bad. o.o
There was pretty much nothing to do other than watch limited random anime in rooms, go to the dealers room, or the video game room.. Mostly I saw people just sitting around and talking.. I paid for a weekend pass for this? >.o The Jrock concert was alright, liking the music was a matter of opinion, but it was just strange that it was a small crowd for the size of the room.. and the fact we had to wait on huge lines for 30+ minutes for events that weren't even full.. is pointless. The Anime Music videos is an example, the line curved around the hall, but after waiting for a half hour or more, we discovered the room was half empty, and the sound kept giving out every now and then. A bunch of videos were really really well done tho. ^^ I'm not trying to bash it at all, I know there are people that had fun, and I'm really glad about that. ^_^ As long as there are people who felt they got their money's worth. I know there were the little workshops, but the fact they were independent of the con and had their own charges was not cool.. don't blame them for the $5 fee, but I wish it was somehow included in the day/weekend pass. o.o It's okay to disagree with me ^^;; but I'm just not sure how many other people see it this way. It was worth meeting new people, though, but it also seemed that really well done cosplay outfits were not appreciated. Ah well, I better end this, I don't mean to sound like I'm ranting too much o.o;;

I guess i see where you're coming from. I was there saturday with a few buds. It was my 2nd convention (Baaf 2003 being my first) but my first time Cosplaying (Sephiroth) so that was a good experience :). It was fun seeing all the cool costumes but i did find myself getting a bit bored toward the end. I'm gona make sure I meet more people next time.

It was nice to meet you Tainted-Embrace.I promise i was not acutally going to bite.I have an usual sense of humor.I am a really nice guy.
On the subject matter of the con.Overall the con was ok.I noticed alot of the major things either ran late or started really late or both.I have had more fun at bigger cons and smaller cons.Plus several other things came up that kinda made the con for me not as fun.

I met (and Huggled) lotsa people and yeah, the con staff were EVIL and the stuff started late but, it was still really really fun. ^.^ And I`m an attention sucker and our group got lotsa attention. But, now I`m back to being that little goth girl no mommies let their kids near. v.v *Sigh*

06-20-2004, 09:35 PM
Boring? Nooo ;_; It was fun...but then again, I got to crawl around under my friends giant hoop skirt, so I guess that would make any con fun. ^_^;; No but really, despite me constantly forgetting to eat and getting low blood sugar, I really enjoyed it. *Dances around* Wee!

Sorahana
06-20-2004, 09:36 PM
I kept running into you Kaine.....literally........*lmfao* It was funny hehe. I am going to Otakon, I am going to be in Otaku Idol wh00t! I got in a fight with Richard during a panel, interacted with him alot during the panels, and hugged him lol. Sorry I'm a major Richard Cox fan ^O^!

Yes, me going under the hoop skirt got us a lot of attention. ^_^;; Teehee.

I always forget to eat at every convention. I swear, who needs exercise to lose weight when you can just go to a con and forget to eat? o_o;; I need to eat more ramen is what I need. -_- lol

Mew_Pudding
06-20-2004, 09:50 PM

I agree, we shall call it the "Con Diet." You go and don`t sleep or eat, be hyper and play DDR until your ready to pass out!! XD

I knew I saw Tainted-Embrace on Saturday morning! =D

Yeah, I thought the con was really fun! I took loads of pics, and people took pics of me, I finally got to meet some of my friends, and I thought that most of the AN staff were really really stupid...other than that, it was an awe!!some!! day =D

06-21-2004, 01:32 AM
I guess it is what you do with your time that makes a day good or bad. I had a good time, it was good to see everyone again. So people know I'm no stranger... I was the Robo Ky and the K' in the Cosplay skits. The I'm too sexy along with Tom, Anna and Chris.

YEs I was indeed sad they brough anime next to this small hotel again, but still it brought people together.

Also I have to say Mew pudding, your acting is wonderful. I just find it very cute and I've yet to see the anime. Congrats to you and all other winners this con.

There were quite a large number of young cosplayer these days, I hope things go far in the future.

I ended up mentioning several times to some friends that i had more fun at Tekkoshocon, but every con is different, ya no. maybe i just prefer small cons. ::shrug::

06-21-2004, 09:26 AM
I had fun at this time. Got to hang out with everyone and stuff. ^-^ Before the rave I hear all this yelling and I found out that they were playing duck duck goose! So me and my friends played ^-^ WOOT! I got to finnaly meet Richard *freaks out*!! Omg what about did anyone hear pplz singing before the cosplay? Yeah me and my friends we were singing all sorts of songs. *giggles* I requested Veronica Taylor(Ash from Pokemon) to say I love you Misty. She did and I was like omg! ^-^ Thought that was neat and all. I guess it just depends who you end up going to the con with and what you do. I had alot of guest to meet and I did go to there pannel twice.

The con had its ups and downs. It all depends on how you wanted it to be. For me, I kept myself busy running around with my friend, trying to get our skit together for the masquerade. Then, the minor photoshoots, practicing for the masquerade, DDR, and just hanging around made the weekend enjoyable for me. ^_^

I do admit that it was disorganized, but the only convention related things I did were the Hall Cosplay and the cosplay.

I managed to keep myself busy, so that took away from any boring aspects of the con. ^.^

Tainted-Embrace
06-21-2004, 07:57 PM
It rocked for me, maybe cause I seen everyone I loveddd,
and met new people.
Forget about the staff, lets just love the cosplatyers.

Mythril
06-21-2004, 08:01 PM
I had a good time, but that was mainly because of the company i kept. The people I was with made the con fun, but I found a lot of problems with the con's organization and staffers... being screamed at when you are waiting patiently for something and being moved along like cattle and being prodded by bokens are not my idea of crowd control ^_^;;; But Peelander Z was hilarious and I saw a lot of great costumers. Some fangirls need to... umm.. show some more respect to others though during shows. I felt really bad --> Thank god for Richard Kim as well.

Ashbrie
06-21-2004, 08:06 PM
And the Paine and Rikku who I danced with when we were jamming to the "Furke" Song.

06-21-2004, 08:11 PM
Bad:
The lighting problems took away from the con alittle
The panels weren't as good as last year.
They didn't have anything showing that wasn't heinti after like 12am so I couldn't watch anything.
Good:
I loved the twisted duck duck goose.
Some of the skits almost had me on the floor from laughing.
Tainted-Embrace what where you on in the hallway waiting for that masquerade? The showtones where funny now that I look back on it. You were so much nicer when you were raver inu...Oh so many guys were hitting on you then..lol....it was fun thanks to your antics.
Other stuff too...I liked alot more than disliked it

Tainted-Embrace
06-21-2004, 08:11 PM

Some fangirls need to... umm.. show some more respect...

Oi, I hear that...This con was the first I ever got scary-fangirl glomped. ;_; She screamed out "RIKKU!" but seeing as I'm someone who doesn't even respond to my own name, I just assumed she meant another one of the other Rikku's...but next thing I know I'm being squeeeeezed! o_o My Paine-friend pulled me away and hugged me to save me thank goodness. Then the girl said that Rikku and Paine made a cute couple...o_O Am I the only one who believes that couple would be a train wreck?

"RIKKU, MAKE ME DINNER!"
"Noooooo I dun wanna..."
*SMACK SMACK*
"OW MY FACE!"

Or...maybe that's just my friend and me when in character. ^_^;;; But anyway, yeah, fangirls are scary. Earlier the same girl also hugged my friend while she was hoop skirt Freya and put her head on her chest. o_o ...Yeah

Tainted-Embrace: BANZAI FUUUUURKE!!!!!! Hooray for Peelander Z, eh? ^_^

the lines did get on my nerves. and i didn't often find help in the animenext volunteers. also the gothic lolita tea party ended an hour early and the dance started too late. when i wasn't running from one event to another or waiting on line for 2 hours for an autograph from richard cox, i was enjoying whatever it was i was on time for (the masquerade the music videos and rock concert). i would do it again, but bring the uno cards just in case.

It wasn't just you. I thought there would have been a lot more to do. I felt kind of dissappointed. I guess I expected too much, considering BAAF was my first con and I thought they were going to be somewhat similar. Hopefully, they'll make it better next year.

freakyarcher
06-22-2004, 12:54 PM
hopefully we can all meet again at another con, i'm starting to make plans for next year's animenext because although i expected it to be more organized, i did get richard's autograph and i met most of you which is always a great thing. plus, running around with emergency crazy glue for my lulu dress was keeping my mind off of the long lines and mean security guards :crylaugh:

I had a horrible headache throughout most of the con so I couldn't really tell if it was good or bad. I did have fun but the migrane I had really pushed me to the limits. I was ready to cry... I was the Advent Children Tifa is anybody was wondering.
