Unofficial Anime Expo Complete Newbies Guide 2013 Edition

Hey guys,

It's that time of the year where I release a new AX Newbies Guide Video. I've been doing these for a few years now but because of the popularity of last years, I've decided to expand the series.

I hope this helps out the new people out there along with the old schoolers who aren't situated with the new policy changes and whatnot.

If you can sticky this, please do!

Watching more than one video? Heads up! Each video will end with the same sign-off, so just skip it and head to the next video!

Here is the playlist:
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...Uh31UMCXyLUv4E

Part 0: Introduction
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhePAUEswL8
Part 1: General & Badge Questions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TRLHLyrKAE
Part 2: Being Social & Lost Items
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSzRILjVpzA
Part 3: Programming & Policies
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSmovywRmsU
Part 4: Miscellaneous Questions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUNbpPFGJA4
Part 5: Best time to.. + New Things to AX
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS_g_6GR5jk
Part 6: How to be a Good Attendee
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuVDLURvYfg
Part 7: mTANG's 7th Year Advice
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvpeTbcQtQ8

In case you forgot how to detect counterfeit anime goods, heres a video I made a year ago:

Here is one on how you can check for counterfeit anime goods:

I want to remind everyone that these videos are not pre-approved by Anime Expo or the SPJA. This is purely an EXPERIENCED ATTENDEE'S advice on Anime Expo and should be used only as a reference and not official statements, comments, or policies. This was created and produced by only me, Michael Tang, of mTANGproductions.

Some parts of the video series contain either outdated or incorrect information and will be noted with annotations and in the info box.

If you have any questions, please do comment here as I will do my best to answer them!

That playlist he posted and uploaded has a lot of great tips on what you can do

Some are like bring your own food to save a lot of money in stead of spending it at the con where its about 200-300% over priced.

Meeting people and sticking with a group you made friends with can also make it more fun when your out there alone

You guys are very welcome. My only hope is that people can view it in time or at least for the year after if they don't get the chance. Thanks for the support guys!
