It's also the area some people go down to to sit when they have nowhere else to be. I think people are moderately aware of it's existence, but not that other items can take place there than parking.

Hey, everyone. Just wanted to get the word out FOR THOSE THAT ARE INTERESTED. The Anime Expo Grub Lot is returning for AX 2016. We'll have favorites like Jogasaki and Kogi but we'll also have some new additions as well. The lot will be open all four days this year. Check out the Facebook page for more information:

Hello again fulgum, yeah, I was checking around before you posted about the food trucks again, can't be AX without them, lol.

And it seems there will be daily posts there on what's returning and what's new on the trucks.

I'm really peeved that the Love Live Aquors event is a Talk Show/Concert. Disappointed that it's not a full concert. Also there is a new event on Sunday called Cowboy Bebop Jazz Cat Experience.

Me thinks this is something similar to the Evangelion event from last year...ugh...

What makes that bad? I mean, I don't see any industry visits...

Is this just a band with a light show?

Doesn't it say Monday at 11:30am?

I guess the burlesque/magic show is on Sunday night though. Um, burlesque and magic? This is an anime convention?

The show makes the rounds at the mid-to-large size conventions in Southern California. I think they were at Comikaze recently, but not WonderCon.

Hey guys, so this is my first time booking a hotel room from the anime expo official hotel block and was wondering how does the process work? Do I go to the hotel that I picked and check in or is there some kind of booth when after you pick up your badges that will guide you to your room you booked? Because I called the hotel I'm staying at to get information but they seem to not have any information on my reservation. Maybe because I booked the hotel from a 3rd party website? I don't know I'm really loss right now and would appreciate some help. Thank you

Closer to the con, Passkey (or whatever vendor AX is using now) should transfer the booking information to the hotel. After that, it's like a standard hotel booking.

Did you make the reservation through AX itself?
Did you get a conformation number?

How it usually works AX (as it gets close) gives the hotels all the information
for the all people that went through AX. You have until the 18th to make any
changes through the AX hotel system. After that you'll have to talk to the
hotel themselves. The own of the credit card which the reservation was made, checks into the hotel in person on the day of check in. I hope this made sense and helped in some way.

does anyone know the deets about the Anime Expo Masquerade? i haven't been before but it says its a ticketed event. There hasn't been any announcement about tickets going on sale or anything on their official page about how it works. Do we have to get them at con or should i be more patient for more info?

Same, but Aqours doesn't have a huge song catalog just yet so it would be a short concert. Also, AX isn't getting all 9 members (unless the 3 that aren't coming are actually going to be a surprise at the event), so a concert wouldn't feel right without all 9. Still wouldn't mind a brief concert anyway since we never got u's.

Also, I find interesting that a few people over at the ANN Forums are saying AX is just going too big on the guests now. I'm sort of inclined to agree, they have so many good guests as it is right now and it could be a point where too much can be a bad thing...after all, there is no way for anyone to see all of them during con short of cloning. Kind of the same with every AX, but it does seem like we're suddenly getting a boatload of guests (and AX says they still have more to announce on Twitter).
