Anime Matsuri?

I noticed a place for Oni-Con, what about Anime Matsuri? Course it wasn't planned as well, and was hardly anything to write home about, but I LOVED it. Then again, I was the only Kenshin and had a handful of fangirls :3

I'll probably be going,2 hours for a con seems to be a bit of a stretch though.

"wasn't planned as well" is right. They invited me down to run Anime Unscripted (formerly "Whose Line is it Anime") and some panels for them. I was even listed on the schedule. However, I e-mailed questions to them 2 months before the con that they never replied to. Repeated attempts to e-mail anyone I could got no reply.

...so even though I had requested time off from work and everything, I never actually made it down to Houston. As far as I know Whose Line stayed on the schedule at the con (it was still on the online schedule) and nobody was there to run it.

A lot of the post-con reports I read seemed to confirm the thoughts that the convention was very disorganized...even for a first year event. I'm honestly surprised they're doing to attempt a second year.

They are moving to a new facility and revamping a lot of their staff. They are bringing on some on some people who I know have a good work ethic. People can be forgiving so the ones coming back either did have a good time or giving AM a 2nd chance. I plan to attend to see how it goes this time.

I'm genuinely sorry to hear about your experience. Personally, I found their communications prompt and thorough.

My worst experience about last year was getting out of Houston. There was some sort of downtown event on Sunday, that had blocked off a number of roads used in my Google directions home. So, it took a few more minutes to get home. Pretty trivial stuff that I certainly don't blame Anime Matsuri for.

The new hotel looks like a tremendous improvement for cosplay photography. The hotel appears to be $10 cheaper and the parking is free this year. Location is great with a lot of necessities near by, such as a mall across the street, a Target within a mile, and plenty of places to eat.

I'm already set to return this year and looking forward to it.
