I'm very close to considering attending Anime Matsuri this year from all the way from the DC area just to get out of the house after 2-3 months.

I've heard about the convention many years ago but I need to know what to expect.
>>
People here will tell you that its the shittiest con to exsist

They will say you will be assaulted

They will regurgitate talking points from ages ago

They will say the con has been sued 100s of times and is well hated in the industry

They will say it's tiny and insignificant

But I don't see any evidence of any of that.

Ive been several years and always had a great time

They are held in one of the largest convention centers in the USA

There have consistently been industry guests every year I've been...I went and saw the official evangelion exhibit and even met the art director for the show

I saw the Japanese production of sailor moon live there, WITH the Japanese actresses and staff

Last year they had TOHO there in an official capacity, and I got to meet many of the Godzilla artists. And they had a nifty exhibition set up

This year it looks like looks like TOHO is coming back, (despite unsubstantiated rumors of them being treated awful) MAPPA is coming in some capacity bit seems, so is good smile racing. And K-books, so it looks like they have industry support at least from the Japan side

Go if you want to have fun, do what you want and don't let others try and convince you otherwise
>>
I don't care where you stand on Anime Matsuri being a shitty convention, but for your safety, stay home. Texas has not flattened the curve whatsoever. You'd be safer in some place like Montana or Vermont, but not Texas. You're going to get sick.
>>
>>10399990
>m-muh flattenin der c-cruve!!!
shut the fuck up lmao, you're literally the reason why cons are not opening back up. sit your ass down.
>>
>>10399981
Damn getting desperate there Leigh, aren't you?
>>
I will be impressed if the city allows it when the Houston mayor said today that they're going after businesses who are over the 25% / 50% capacity.

A report came out that Harris County has the potential to have over 2000 cases a day in June.

https://www.khou.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/new-data-paints-harris-county-in-troubling-light/285-d11b86a3-87bd-4d4e-b59c-7e4003a2ab34

Maybe that won't be the case but I'd rather advert death. I hope you suckers who think this is bullshit so you give them money get ripped off AM. They will keep your money if they start on Friday to only be shut down then promptly tell you to fuck off. They are the worst scam artists.
>>
>>10399968
there's so many reasons to not go but I personally wouldn't pay a flight to go to a con where everything is delayed by 2 hours and most of the staff don't know what the fuck they're doing so they just do bullshit instead of fixing any issues at the con
>>
>>10400227
Tell me some horror stories
>>
>>10400227
Someone said in a previous thread that the Leighs are relationship breakers if you are too lovey-dovey in front of them if you work for them.

Are they really having Anime Matsuri this year? Why haven’t they canceled it?
>>

>>10400654
Because the Leighs are niggers.
>>
>>10400654

>>10400024
Maybe cons would open up if you stayed your ass inside for at least two weeks like you were supposed to. All the other countries are opening up because they actually followed the rules.
>>
>>10400737
>All the other countries are opening up because they actually followed the rules.
You mean like Sweden who never shut down?

Wow this thread is a trashfire, but what do you expect for an AM thread?

OP, in the chance that you are serious here's some hopefully non-bias opinions about AM.

They manage to pull some impressive Japanese/foreign guests but they have a very absent local industry participation. With the way things are I would be worried their international guests might not be able to travel and thus they'd have nothing going on if they still happen

EVERYTHING starts late
I'm not talking 10 - 15 minutes (which does still happen ) I'm talking hours. They also sometimes will cut these late events short making what was scheduled to be a long event like 30 minutes. Over the years this has happened with the cosplay show, fashion show and hentai fest

They almost certainly oversell their numbers. While anons will say it's "dead" and that's not true there is no way they are getting the numbers they claim to.

As a tourist downtown Houston is kind of lame. Everything shuts down at 6-7.

And lastly, just because they plan to still happen doesn't mean the city couldn't pull rank and shut them down if they get scared. If you do plan something make sure you can get out of it. Back in March there was a local DFW con that was shut down half way through the event because Dallas put a stay at home in effect with less than 24 hours notice.
>>
>>10399981
They have been sued several times. You can look it up...Don't forget the arcade eviction too!

They are terrible with money. You could still enjoy the con but you can't pretend they are good with money.
>>
>>10401248
Let's not forget over a decade of tax evasion, felony theft, sexual assault, violent threats, harassment, and endangering the welfare of their own guests.

You're giving money to the biggest shit stains in the world.
>>
>>10401257
Anon, you can look up the lawsuits they are publicly available. The eviction notice has been posted on cgl many times over the years.

Aside from that one virtual idol guest who made a public Facebook post about their termination working with AM everything else you have listed is hearsay and unprovable.

Can we keep it to accusations with creditable evidence that are provable? (inb4 of course not)
>>
>>10401394
All of the above have been posted on cgl with news articles and blog links. When they are posted they're promptly dismissed. All of it are on the cgl archive sites but you sound dismissive to post the proof again. When they do show up AM followers downplay them that they're slander.

We should all be working together to see the demise of AM and the Leighs.
>>
>>10401439
Just because some anime "news" site or some local blog no one had ever heard of before the scandle quote live journal posts it doesn't make it credible. All of the harassment accusations are hearsay. No one has ever pressed charges or taken him to court over any of it.

I have no idea what tax evasion you are talking about but any time anyone has beef with any con the first thing they do is accuse them of not paying taxes.


This con has so many actual visible and provable issues (poorly managed, nothing on time, can't pay bills, over estimate attendance, can't book domestic anime guests, etc) why is it the first thing people bring up is all the shit that doesn't matter?

Looks like the GRB is trying to move them to August now. Probably not a good sign. They admitted (for what I think was the first time) that doing the event in July would be sans concerts, dances and cosplay contest.

They also posted earlier about not running gaming tournaments so they don't have to sanitize controllers.


So what would this con even be with basically all major programming removed?
>>
>>10401461
Oh god that one was an hour and a half late. Holy cow it was so bad. Nobody could even hear what was going on in the back.
>>
>>10401484
Just an anime market basically and thats only if all the vendors haven’t pulled out
>>
>>10399968
It’s bad anon trust me. It used to be really good years back but it’s dropped in quality. Everything is late, guests cancel with the constantly, everything is overpriced, etc. Save you money for a bigger con .

I mean like New Zealand and China, dumbass. Even Russia and Brazil are doing better than us. Every country is doing better than this.
>>
>>10401733
>Russia
Russia's numbers aren't accurate; for a while they didn't count corona deaths and just reported the immediate cause of death, so you'd see the number of deaths from pneumonia spike but no one would say it's corona. As for Brazil, it's currently winter there so they're about to have a really bad time.

But what was it?

Charged 6-7 or so dollars extra for it too. Waste of money. Never again.

They charged extra?
>>
>>10401773
Yes on top of the pass which was already expensive enough.
>>
I had some girls in the previous thread telling me that the good smile racing booth was a lie, and that goodsmile put out a statement saying they aren't coming and had never even heard of anime matsuri.


Nigga...AM is on the fucking 2020 racecar...

The lengths these gulls go to to try and seem "strong and outspoken" lol it's just funny at this point.
>>
>>10402051
Link us
>>
>>10402051
.... Where? I read the entire thread? What are you even talking about
>>
>>10402294
They link to AM on goodsmile racing website as a sponsor so that person is lying.

https://www.goodsmileracing.com/en/sponsor/company/
>>
>>10402305
No I don’t care about that I meant where was someone even lying about it.
>>
>>10402051
>AM is on the race car
>Digiclub is also on the race car

Oh look its the guys that went into a locked artist alley and stole shit from people's tables and also left their cards scattered behind the tables.

Looks like good smile will just throw anyone on their car that pays for a spot on it.

Nigga there's been news article after news article. Boycott pages on all forms of social media. Constant threads on multiple forums... All this has been going on since like 2015.

People know, they just don't give a shit.
>>
So is this shit show still happening or not?
>>
>>10404076
Most likely not considering they keep pushing back the date farther and farther.
>>

that's how sponsors work

Says a lot about your business if you let sponsors that have a bad rep give you money.
>>
>>10404203
Wait, I thought AM was broke from all the lawsuits. Looks to me they are doing just fine.
>>
Is there a discord server for anime Matsuri?
>>
How do you still have a con when the Brown Convention Center has been trashed and burned?
>>
They pushed it back a month so it should be ok
>>
>>10405804
You can’t till it’s rebuilt. Are they trashing it yet from the protests?
>>
>>10400786
Or Japan which I think is a better example of a country not suffering huge losses without any lockdowns
>>
>>10405872
Hey, Japanese people actually followed social distancing, understand how mask actually work, they practiced avoiding their 3 C's, also much better hygiene
>>
Anime Matsuri has still yet to make a post about BLM and I’m pretty disappointed. I’m not going unless they make some kind of statement about all this horridness and cruelty going on. Seems like they just don’t care and want money.
>>
>>10406229
making some bullshit statement is just as bad a virtue signal for your money
it's the blm equivalent of all the covid email spam practically every company was sending out a couple of months ago
>>
>>10406229
You do realize AM is a black owned business, right? JL is Nigerian.
>>
>>10406286
In fact, now that I think about it... Their entire upper management staff are POC.

JL is Nigerian
DL is Vietnamese
DM is Latino

.... surprisingly progressive.
>>
>>10401761
>constitutional violation
Which of the below are against the US constitution? (select one)
a. being asked to stay at home as much a possible
b. being asked to wear a mask in public
c. being asked to stay 6 feet away from others
d. none of the above, you complete fucking moron
>>
>>10406377
Try

>Being forced to stay home under penelty of fine or jail. Authorities won't define clearly what constitutes required vs optional outings so citizens have no idea what's expected
>Forcing you to wear something against your will under fine or penilty
>Forcing you to not gather under fine or penilty. Again with little to no concrete definitions or guidance

These are local and state governments that forced citizens to comply with executive order type declaration and no chance for the people to vote or discuss. They also shut down the courts so if you are fined or charged you can't seek to contest it...so where's the due process?

And then you have the states that are using covid as a means to try and erode the second

If you can't tell the difference between being advised to do something and forced to do something I can't help you.
>>
>>10406401
Oh sorry, the smart people care about not killing you or your grandparents you fuck wit. Please attend Anime Matsuri so you can cosplay then bring home death to your own family as they gasp for their last breath in two weeks.

>>10406286
Then why doesn’t he say anything about his brothers being brutally murdered and hit with tear gas and pepper spray?
>>
>>10406286
oh wow i thought he was white this whole time. that is some light ass skin.
>>
>>10405797
Not an official one. There’s supposedly a fan server, which they suck anyways because it’s almost the same thing other fan servers of cons do.
>>
>>10406287
Some of y’all anons clearly haven’t noticed how conservatives both the Leighs and DM is.

If you have them as friends, they will remove you as a friend if you sharing political stuff and other beliefs they don’t approve of.
>>
>>10405804
Wait, when did that happened?!?
>>
>>10406451
Sorry I answered your question about how local and state governments were infringing on your rights?

If covid is still so threatening can you tell everyone to stop rioting in the streets then?
>>
Honestly hoping the riots today set the GRB on fire so that way Anime Matsuri can cancel completely.
>>
>>10406577
And you say the matsuri folks are the irrational ones?
>>
>>10406584
Considering they steal others money, sexually harass and belittle young women, try to silence those who speak against them, then yes they are the irrational ones and deserve to have justice served cold to them!
>>
>>10406608
>Thinking a sad weeb trying to flex is more irrational then hoping an entire convention center burns down to prevent his flex.

God I hate boycottAM

>>10406615

>>10406577
don't wish that, the GRB would have to refund AM if that happened. It'll be way funnier to watch AM fail.
>>
>>10406709
You’ve got a point there anon.
>>
>>10406709
Surely it will happen THIS time
>>
>>10406836
Because moving it a month will surely make a difference as it'll all magically go away.

Fucking dumbasses.
>>
>>10406836
It’s already been happening anon. Definitely a decline compared to years ago . Sorry to burst your bubble.
>>
>>10406841
Watch them move it even farther lol at this point why don’t they just cancel for this year and worry about making next year better and bigger?
>>
>>10406862
They need to rip off more people before throwing in the towel
>>
>>10405926
Ooh look, a weeb buying into Japan knowing what it's doing. Yeah, things are fine in Japan! They refused to test anybody because muh Olympics and ignore spikes in pneumonia related deaths to keep that sweet confirmed death rate low, meanwhile people still cram into trains and restaurants like nothing's actually happening. Gotta reopen the economy before actually managing the first wav-wait what do you mean the infection rates spiked within days of us ending the SoE? How could this happen? But the economy??

Anyways, Japan is perfect virus-free paradise.
>>
>>10406860

It's been 5 years since all this broke out

Still waiting.
>>
>>10407037
You have it wrong anon I’m not saying that they’re going to completely shut down. Im saying that each year their con gets worse and worse and the bad reviews keep growing each yearas more and more guests cancel and refuse to come back.Also not to mention the horrible planning and things being late by an entire hour.
>>
>>10407096

>guests refuse to come back

TF are you talking about, are you stupid or just acting like it?

Enji night has come EVERY YEAR since 2016

Gacharic spin came 2011, 2017, and LAST YEAR

Reika came 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and LAST YEAR (dispute unsubstantiated rumors of her being abused in 2015)

Mario Castaneda came 2018 and LAST YEAR

Hana bunny came last year, and is coming this year

TOHO got a booth last year and is returning this year

Leon chiro came 2018 and last year

Shunsuke Hasegawa (Putumayo) came 2014- 2018

Pugoffka came in 2018 and is returning this year

Ricardo brust came last year, and is returning this year

Doug Jones came 2018 and last year

Dancing dolls came in 2017 and 2018. Misaki P from the group returned last year to DJ her solo act.

Made monster came 2018 and last year

Akira (dissacode) came 2016-2018

Haneame came last year and is returning this year

Shiva (BOZ) came 2016-2018

@home cafe from Akihabara,Tokyo has come every year since their first appearance

Swollowtail butler cafe from Toshima, Tokyo has come every year since their first appearance

And this is just what I could find with a quick Google, there are probably even more.

Bruh, MOST guests make return appearances.
>>
>>10407184
So you just gunna not mention how the entire cast of steven universe and overwatch voice actors cancelled on coming to anime matsuri or....???

>Most of these ending in 2018

Holy shit Anon. I was just joking when I asked if you were stupid, but now I think you might actually be stupid.

I'm gonna need you to read this next part really slowly, smoothbrain. There is some math to it. This might go over your head, but I have faith in you.

I gave 18 examples.

Of those 18, three have not come since 2018

Hasegawa, Akira, and Shiva.

Now, would you describe 3/18 as "most"?

No, of course not. God, it's just embarrassing at this point.
>>
>>10407494

Also, there has been ONE event since 2018.....The 2019 event.

All guests for the 2020 event have not been announced.

If you think an event is going downhill because 3 people (who were not invited) did not make an appearance at ONE event, Then I'd say this whole boycott is fucked lol.

For the record, the complete guest list for 2019 was..


Apink - Musicians

Eva Bella - Actor

Ricardo Brust - Voice Actor

Mario Castañeda - Voice Actor

Leon Chiro - Cosplayer

Richard Dorton - Actor

Rick Farmiloe - Animator

Gacharic Spin - Band

Hana Bunny - Cosplayer

Wataru Hatano - Voice Actor / Singer

Junko Iwao - Actor

Doug Jones - Actor

Ellen Kim - Dancer

Aina Kusuda - Actor

Patrick Kwok-Choon - Actor

Ladybaby - Band

Reuben Langdon - Actor / Stuntman

Jason Liles - Actor

Made Monster - Musicians

Alan Maxson - Actor

Vic Mignogna - Actor

DJ Misaki P - Disc Jockey

Sara Mitich - Actor

Harumo Sanazaki - Manga Artist / Author

Nozomu Sasaki - Voice Actor

TJ Storm - Actor

Livvy Stubenrauch - Actor

@home - Japanese maid cafe

Swollowtail -Japanese butler cafe

TOHO - Japanese production
company

2017 had about 34 guests

2018 had about 37

2019 had the above (according to animecons)

so it looks to me like they have 33~38 guests each year, recently.

I'm failing to see the decline. It looks to me like things are staying relatively the same, guest-wise.

Let's compare that to the only real competition they have in TX, A-kon (the longest running anime con in the USA)

They had less than 30 guests in 2019

Mexico and Texas share a border and as a result, the state has a very large Mexican population.

MANY Texans grew up with the Latin American dubs of DBZ.

If you think that it won't happen in August, you might me literally retarded.

Just like every year you guys say AM is definitely done for.

You are wrong about this too.

John Leigh supports cops, in fact, he paid $4k for an off-duty officer last year according to financial reports
>>
>>10410901
Most cons pay off duty police for security. Sometimes the venues even require it in contract.

It's absurd the same group of people that are so staunchly for ensuring people that are sexually assaulted have safe avenues to report it at cons are ALSO against a police presence.

John Leigh is a black business owner Who marched with protestors in downtown Houston last week.
>>
>>10410906
that's now how that works. the venue security and con security are entirely different. con security can be literally anyone, they're mostly free volunteers. the venue can't tell them who to choose. venues have their own private security that works for them, that cons have to allow separately from their security staffers.

>Anime Matsuri this year
??? this year
>>
>>10410916
Yes that is exactly how that works. An officer has to be around to arrest and transport to jail at all times.
>>
>>10411047
can you not read? the convention center is the ones who provide that not the con.
>>
>>10410916
Cons have volunteers they call "security" to handle shit like line management but they are very regularly required to hire professionals. Why would a venue pay for a bunch of increased security out of their pocket for a large event? Of course they require the event to pay for it.
>>
>>10411156
why would the venue want to be in charge of it's own security???

I don't know why you're pushing this so hard. You clearly don't know what you're talking about.
>>
>>10411215
No you absolute moron, they charge for the EXTRA security. Of course they have their own security but if venues charge 50 bucks to move one chair they are going to make the event pay for the additional security. You really think a venue wouldn't push that cost onto the event?

Did you know it's illegal in some states to run 18+ events without an officer to check IDs? Probably not since you seem convinced AM is the only con ever to hire police for security reasons. Hate to break it to you but every large con in the country works with the PD. Sorry you're too stupid to have ever noticed.

With what’s currently happening, AM is nowhere in their right minds to want the police on their side right now. There has been cases in Houston but then again, since we’re the most diverse city, it doesn’t get in national news, much less in local news.

If they want security, they should consider expanding their security department. If they really want to let their history of sexual assaults to go down the drain, they need to expand their Human Relations and their Security departments because there’s still cases like one volunteer that almost got gang bang by three male volunteers in a room. AM is a piece of shit for giving a side eye about the safety of their own volunteers.

You know who's responsibility it is to punish people for sexual battery?

The police.
>>
>>10411578
yes and the police are there, working for the VENUE not the con.

>WOW anime Matsuri can't do anything right. They're staff sucks
>WOW Anime Matsuri is run by a sexual predator
>Instead of using law enforcement let's give the shitty con we hate and accuse of not taking harassment seriously the power over security

Are you ok?
>>
>>10411611
Can you shut up? The con itself said they are the ones hiring police.
>>
>>10411069
What convention do you work for again?
>>
>>10411811
San Japan
>>
>>10411853
Lol, you funny troll. What con do you really work for?
>>
>>10412903
San. Japan.
>>
>>10399968
Ive gone to Anime Matsuri for the past 4 years the last one was in 2018 It's an ok convention but this year stay away. We are in the worst place to be in terms of the Wuhan plauge and this is going to make it worse.
>>
lmao that they are still having this con in the middle of a pandemic

Some of y’all really think they are saints that y’all haven’t realize that they support blackface. The fact that they are bringing Pugoffka (which she takes pictures of blackface cosplayers) shows how they say one thing but they do another thing. They all in for blackfacing and the police support.
>>
>>10419633
the owner is black himself sooo... who cares
>>
>>10419635
So you okay for a mix black person to bring people that does blackface to an convention? To a city that doesn’t even approve blackfacing?
>>
>>10419782
If you do blackface at San japan, they just assume you are black and kick you out.
>>
Man, is John really trying to become a con-artist? Has anyone seen the livestream he did not that long ago?

“Hosting the con would encourage people to go out.” My ass! Has he seen all the increases of cases?
>>
>>10422684
People are going to go out regardless.

Weather it be at AM or anywhere else. The responsible thing would be to open businesses and spread those idiots out.

The people who don't want to go out, won't.

The hard-headed people who do want to go out, will be more spread out.

As of now, all the hardheaded people are congregating to the few places that will have them.
>>
>>10422684
Y'all niggas need to decide

Is AM so crowded that people can't practice social distancing?

Or is it an empty wasteland?

It can't be both
>>
>>10423070
couldn't it be like trump's rally where hardly anyone shows up but they all huddle together?
>>
>>10423112
That’s what’s it’s going to end up looking. If you have seen previous pictures of the con (not officially taken by them, remember angles are being used to show a specific area), it does show more space than people ratio.
>>
>>10423407
Still happening.

Be mad.
>>
Houston anonymous here. I've gone to Matsuri and sometimes they cant handle their own lines to go to a certain event. at this point they should cancel and try to switch to next year.
>>
>>10423644
Not sure what you mean of who’s mad but a few of us are excited to see AM be the laughingstock when they are forced to close.
>>
I went to matsuri the last 3 years in a row. Last year was my last. Regardless of all the claims of how bad attendees are, overall it's VERY poorly organised, they have way too much room and do nothing with it, they lack mediators at panels where the speaker is not as popular. Oni-con in Galveston is organized and way better than Matsuri.

Im out of the loop and have been for awhile, what exactly is this?
>>
>>10427624
Anime Matsuri is one of the cons that haven’t backed out due to the coronavirus, which many believed that batsoup was where the virus came from
>>
So are we taking bets on when AM will be forcibly cancelled now that Texas has a mandatory mask order and a ban on gatherings again?
