So who else is gonna be at these conventions? Keep in mind that if you plan to go alone you’re gonna have a bad time, so why not hang with me and my pals?

This is one of Anime Detour’s mascots. Yes, really.

Anime Detour crew (March 30-April 1):



(This is like a 150-person 5,000-person con. I’d be fucking surprised if anyone else was going.)

Plans: AMV contests, My Little Pony panels jumping in front of buses, blogging about better things.


Anime Boston’s mascots. Yes, really.

Anime Boston crew (April 6-8):







lygerzero0zero (Maybe. We’ll see if we can convince him.)

Plans: Get super smashed and see how long it takes for Soup’s heckling to get us kicked out.

Don’t get crowd fright. It looks like a big group but we’ll probably be in smaller groups depending on how the day goes. It’ll be like a Tales of game.

I-It’s not like I want you to join my party or anything…

So yeah, I expect to see you there. Oh wait, you have other plans?

You don’t have shit going on. So I expect I’ll see you at one of these cons.


Okay, cool. Confirmations down below.

>My Little Pony panels
How about no.

Dark_Sage says:

There are only two places to get drunk at Anime Detour: your room or the My Little Pony After Dark panel. And I ain’t paying a couple hundred bucks to sit in a hotel room and get wasted.

If you’ve got any better ideas, I’d love to hear them.

Anon says:

Jumping in front of a speeding truck would be a better idea than going anywhere near an MLP panel.

Dark_Sage says:

I’ll take your advice then. Goodbye, cruel world.

Nevreen says:

PAX East clearly the superior choice to Anime Boston.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m not interested in Minecraft, League of Legends, or Blizzard. What reason would I have to go to PAX East?

Nevreen says:

If you’re any kind of gamer, then PAX is definitely worth a visit, if only for the atmosphere of the place. But I was mostly being facetious. We’re going to spend most of the weekend around town being rowdy rather than at the con, anyway.

Dark_Sage says:

That’s the best way to roll.

Yeah, I really only play J-RPGs and with the state of that genre this generation… there’s not much for me.

Xythar says:

There’s Xenoblade, at least. That’s been enough to last me a fair while.

Plus, Tales of Graces F just came out! Oh, who am I kidding, it’s not like fansubbing leaves me with any time to play RPGs anyway.

Dark_Sage says:

Graces F is good. You should make room for it in your schedule.

Xenoblade… I grabbed the European version to try it out first. I think I got about an hour of gameplay in before I fell asleep while playing the game. Seriously. I looked online and people were just singing praises of the “Amazing Graphics” and “best RPG gameplay ever”. When does it get good?

Xythar says:

It throws you into the action pretty quickly, but I’d say the main draw of the game is the massive world with tons of things to do. If that doesn’t appeal to you, then it might not be your kind of game.

I’d say to play at least up to the Bionis’ Leg (first big wilderness area) before you give up on it, though. That’s when I first felt like I was really playing something amazing. You can probably get there in a couple hours if you don’t get too sidetracked by stuff to do in the first town.

SoupRKnowva says:

“Plans: Get super smashed and see how long it takes for Soup’s heckling to get us kicked out.” It warms my heart to see this Dark_Sage :D

Calyrica says:

Actually, Detour is a 5,000 person con. The reason why they can’t have any more people is the closest hotel that would let them have a higher attendance cap is in Chicago.

puddizzle says:

Nobody comes to the west coast conventions.

*will be going to sakuracon alone*

Dark_Sage says:


Kamica says:

Don’t feel too bad pudizzle. SakuraCon has better guests than AnimeBoston this year.

Imperial_Neko says:

Yeah, I don’t go to that one but I go to another convention on the west coast called Fanime. I only have enough money for that one and thankfully it’s coming up in a month or so.

>going to american cons
>niggers cosplaying naruto

oboeotaku says:

At least they weren’t rapping Dango Daikazoku.
…I hope.

Kamica says:

I am going to AnimeBoston. I have no interest in drinking even though I am 23 years old. Might still try to meet up with you guys for a short while though.

Dark_Sage says:

Works for me. Not like I plan on being wasted 24/7.

lvlln says:

Hey, I’m going to be there, along with quite a few others. We were planning a lunch meet up on Saturday. What’s the best way to contact you guys? If you want to get in touch with me you obviously have my email address in this comment, or you can contact me on Twitter at @lvlln (no vowels).

Dark_Sage says:

Others as in who? Fans of your blog? Sounds like fun. I’ll toss ya an email.

Beckett says:

Sadly I’ll be spending all of my money getting my hipster on at Coachella in April so no cons for me!

AzureHakua says:

Rita-chan Soup’s heckling to get us kicked out

Sounds like fun.

Chiakisama says:

I’ll be at Anime Boston and I’m totally down to chill with you guys and heckle 14 year old girls, unless that’s not on your list of things to do.

Dark_Sage says:

Sounds good. I’ll email ya later tonight.

Whatever says:

If I wasn’t broke, a trip to Boston for the lulz would be nice. Good luck guys and have fun.
