Otakon 2017 – Best Anime Convention Ever

I have been to Awesome Con and Anime USA but I never been to Otakon. The reason is Otakon is because it’s in Baltimore and I live in DC, I don’t have time to travel there. Luckily in 201, Otakon came to Washington, DC and I was stoked about it. When I went to Otakon for the first time it was a long line and ticket cost $100 dollar and it’s was insane but worth it. During Friday and Saturday, I don’t have to work but I went to some panels such as Voice acting with Lex Lang and Sandy Fox. It was a learning experience for people who want to become voice actor. Vic Mignogna Q & A was one of the best panel in Otakon and very lively. Vic talk about his voice acting career and his love of Star Trek and Sharks. The highlight of the panel Vic whisper her girl’s ears as Tamaki Suoh from Ouran High School Host Club and show him and Todd Haberkorn in a Free Swim contest. Next panel I went to Sekai Project who show upcoming visual novel games. Sentai Filmworks announcing upcoming dubs in anime such as Grimoire of Zero, Princess Principal, Love and Lies and many more. Anime and Hollywood which they show how anime is adapted into live action and CGI.

Niatinic did reach out to the folks  and offer a ticket refund and $100 micro-transaction credit.  They don’t want it and stated that “we’re not seeking any relief with respect to the failure to get legendary Pokémon, because Niantic is offering that.” “But Niantic is not offering to refund people’s travel expenses for coming to Chicago. Most of the people came from out of state, many people from other countries — I talked to someone who flew in from Japan.”
