I went this weekend and there were a lot of FSN cosplayers. Would you guys be interested in me putting up the cosplayer photos? I have to sort through like 800.

Also I'm surprised there wasn't a thread for this to begin with.

I stopped making individual con threads and just use my blog to report on stuff because the threads rarely get used.

Hakumen, of course.

While I was there I went to a Tony Oliver Q&A panel. He's the voice actor for Lupin and Bang Shishigami (the old one) along with the director of the Fate/Zero dub. Here are some of the questions I recorded. I could put up more if people are interested.

TONY OLIVER Q&A


1) Tony Oliver explains why he stopped voicing Bang

2) Tony Oliver talks about auditioning as a VA

3) Tony Oliver explains Lupin's laugh

4) Tony Oliver explains why anime is the hardest medium to voice act for

5) Tony Oliver talks about directing Fate/Zero

My own question was about halfway through this one.


After the panel I got to talk to him. He's a pretty funny and nice guy.

Should get mods to change this thread to say 2015 then we can use is as a basis in July.

Seems like our current group for Otakon is:
Maple
mAc
Rafflesiac
Names
Moony
Bdoom

Maybe:
June

Anyone else considering going?

EDIT: Thanks IRUN

Reminder that Rafflesiac will, in fact, be cosplaying Rani, so everyone go to watch that.

Staying up late and bullshitting with your roommates and consummating any homoerotic vibes you may have is a time-honored con staple.

SINIB

SINIB

I got there around 8:30 or 9(the game room). I went to the dealers room first and fueled my plush addiction.

BLers I met:
- Moony
- Nachos
- Bdoom
- Raff

Moony was our guide for finding good places to eat near the convention center, Bdoom saved me when my phone was going to die, Nachos was hilarious, and Raff came through with the godlike Rani cosplay. One of my friends I brought with me who hadn't even played Fate/Extra and hadn't been told about it even recognized it.

Hopefully you guys all come again next year so we can do this again.

Also shoutouts to Nachos and Moon's good impersonation of my avatar.

Went to the FSN English Dub Premiere with Raff and Nachos while Mac soldiered through the fakeout that was the DBZ panel. The dub was pretty good, although Ilya got on my nerves a bit. Rin could have been a bit lower in pitch, I feel, but Rachel's VA was playing her and I love her voice. Archer was pretty good, Shirou and Saber weren't bad.

Nachos cracked up at one line "My consent is unnecessary", and poor Raff and I had to pat him on the back.

what the fuck man

half the room got up and left

including me

I would have gotten a flagon, but they turned out to be ~75 dollars. After a long day of travel, I'm back home, and Nachos is on his way to Canada... time to reaffirm my obedience to the RP section and write posts.

All in all, it was pretty fun.

I am now home, and I took tomorrow morning off. Time to watch anime.

Also I came home to a thunderstorm, felt super chuuni. The skies of Montreal themselves raged in my absence...

About otakon though, uh

Lines
getting rekt at blazblue
blu rays
hiei nendo
losin' money
overpriced sushi
Zack Morrison (Does a webcomic called paranatural, it's super cool and funny)
Moony, mac, raff and bdoom
me and moon becoming azrael fanboys

Totally worth it, for the ACTIVITIES, the company, the games and the memes. Once I find my camera I'll post my loot.

Truly a satisfying meal

Rachels's VA?

July 28th, 2015, 03:46 PM
Rachels's VA?

Mela Lee, English dub voice of Rin Tohsaka, also voice of Rachel Alucard.

Which lines up real well since that's the same as the Japanese voices and Kana.

SINIB
July 28th, 2015, 05:02 PM
Explain.
We went to an overpriced sushi place and one of mac's friends didn't want his large ball of wasabi, so I took it and ate it on one go. It hurt so good.
