They say to never meet your heroes, but I ain’t exactly a hero.
Seriously, though. Someone tell those Make-A-Wish kids to stop asking for me. I don’t wanna catch their cancer.
Anime Central – May 17-19th – Chicago
It’s Chicago, why the hell not?
Crew: SoupRKnowva, TL-kun the Second (Maybe?), TL-kun the Third (Maybe?), ?? (I get the feeling I’m forgetting quite a few fansubros who told me they’d be here.)
Anime North – May 24th-26th – Toronto
I’m not sure why I’m going to this.
Crew: Aieon (Doki), jakeman95 (Doki), Curser656 (NWTC/Oni), iMdai (Doki), TheThing|Encoding (Doki/Oyatsu), Asterx (CMS/Doki), IrieNaoki (Doki), PitchBlack (Doki), Autumnn (I dunno? Doki?), Switches (Fansubber killer)
Honestly, I don’t know how I got roped into a Doki gathering, especially since I’ve only ever talked with like three of them. Drunk_Sage needs to stop visiting IRC.
Youmacon – October 31st-November 3rd – Detroit
Heard way too many good things about this con. The only problem is the location, but at least it’s not Flint, amirite?
Anime Punch (Armageddicon) – Even they don’t fucking know (really) – Columbus
My first (and likely last) 18+ anime con. Let’s hope the alcohol poisoning kills me before fansubs do.
So if you’re gonna be at one of these things, we should hang. Out, not people. No worries — I’m pretty chill IRL since threatening to poison someone’s family for leaving a period off a sentence isn’t looked favorably on in today’s society.
And if you’re not going to one of these, thank your lucky stars that you don’t need to suffer interacting with what is essentially an unwashed gaggle of redditards who think masturbating to cosplayers counts as losing their virginity.
