>>10637082>virtual onlyits over
>>10637082>>10637084>Tfw you're the actual person that made these postsHey, I was just being real. You can quit calling me a doomer.
>>10637082>$5 to watch pre-recorded panels>That money goes to woke bullshit Stop Asian HateThis kills the anime convention scene.
>>10637082>$5 cover chargeYeah that effectively drives away any casual viewer or people who aren't closely following AX. I hope AX bankrupts itself completely this year and sells off to someone else more competent to run the show.
>>10637516That five dollars would be better spent at a local Asian grocery instead of some woke charity that will pocket everything.
>>10637662>some woke charity that will pocket everything.This, what's there to spend money to try and stop mentally ill homeless people from beating up Asian people?
>AX lite 2021>post made July 4 2020
https://www.anime-expo.org/2021/06/25/lisani%EF%BC%81-live-l-a-returns-to-anime-expo-lite-2021/>$27 for a pre-recorded concertWow just wow.
I have absolutely zero desire to watch another "livestream" of pre-recorded panels, and even less of a desire to fund AX's tax write-off to an organization with a vacuous mission statement to "dismantle racism and hate" that has yet to concretely identify how it intends to allocate donations
Anyone who pays for these "live" streams is an idiot.
>>10638182donations probably go to get looters out of jail, I'd save my money
>>10638326Nah, they're going to purchase a gun for old Asian couples living in LA.
Day 0 is already this Wednesday! I'm hyped!
>>10638442>this guy again
Fuck I wish it was real AX. My whole body is telling me it's that time of year and it sucks that it's not actually happening. I wonder if people are gonna go hang around LA Live anyway despite the lack of a con.
Imagine still living in a covidwoke state at this point
>>10638182Is that really their mission statement? They'll probably just use the money to buy a billboard and slap on some feel-good empty slogan, then write off the rest as "operation costs". I wouldn't be surprised if the AX management is the ultimate beneficiary behind the charity (or friends with them).
>>10638478Mad that people will be there and you won't?>>10638508Just go, we're going to have cosplay gatherings and photoshoots until cops and security tells us to gtfo. >>10638513>Delta variant already discovered in LAWe'll be having AX Lites for the next several years
>>10638532That's the stated purpose on their website, anyway. What's not clear to me is whether Hate Is A Virus is raising this money on behalf of the Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, a charity listed at the bottom of their website that seems to mainly disburse grants to other organizations, or if they are operating on a grant and the money will flow to Hate Is A Virus, Inc, a 501(3)(c) incorporated in late May to "combat hate and discrimination against communities of color by engaging, educating, and activating the multigenerational Asian American and Pacific Islander community and other communities to stand for justice and equality" that is not currently registered as a charity in California.
>>10638550>"combat hate and discrimination against communities of color by engaging, educating, and activating the multigenerational Asian American and Pacific Islander community and other communities to stand for justice and equality">combat hate and discriminationLook at all the news stories and see who makes up the majority of attackers on Asians. Protip: It's not whitey. How can you combat that without making yourself looking racist?
>>10638442Shut the fuck up, cunt.
>>10638634The Asian community knows who attacks them most, don't worry
>no Anime Expo orgy this year again
You can thank the Delta variant why there is going to be an AX Lite in 2022.
>>10639436I'm almost convinced the delta variant shit is made up to scare more people into getting the vaccines
>>10639465>New variants are likely going to be ineffective against current vaccinesWe're never getting our cons back.
>>10639436>>10639485You doomerfags are a determined bunch of little cunts, aren't you?Make sure you come back and apologize when all 2022 cons come back at full capacity.I'm not sure what third world countries are doing, but the USA is pretty much over Covid. The government here cares about money, not lives Even if the variants pose a threat, we're not going back into lockdown here.You Eurofags and down under fags can enjoy being under house arrest for another year, but that shit isn't happening in America.
>>10639503Did you also voted for Trump?
>>10639516No, actually.I'm just telling it like it is. I'm not saying things have been done the way I'd personally like them to.Stop letting Trump live in your head rent free, and stop making the pandemic and vaccine a political thing.
Tomorrow is already Day 0! I just got home from work and I started loading up my cosplays and gear into my car for the long road trip to LA. So what's everyone's cosplay lineup for the next several days who will be at the LACC tomorrow?
so are we actually doing an lacc meetup or what
>>10639882There is suppose to be a gathering Saturday in LT at Weller Court on Saturday, but that's it.
>>10640014>Mario sweatbag They still give him a job why?
DAY ZERO! Let’s fucking gooooooooo!
>>10638508>Fuck I wish it was real AX. My whole body is telling me it's that time of year and it sucks that it's not actually happening. It's fucking weird that my brain actually has this filed away as "AX season" and I start thinking more of cosplaying/vacation time just because of the weather and July 4th, but it does. Also, fuck AX Lite, the stream last year was the single most depressing event during COVID
>>10640014>That same creepy wall-eyed fucker from last year that just kept smiling into the camera like he was a kawaii anime girlNope.jpg
>>10640014Bottom right look like a troon
>>10640162>Implying that it isn't
I just arrived in downtown LA and where the fuck is everyone? Where are the banners? Isn't Day 0 suppose to be today?
>>10640330enjoy the lockdown
>>10640343LA is open, you just gotta wear a mask in most stores.
>>10640343They opened up all of California, and hardly anyone wears a mask now
>>10640343>Doomfag still postingLockdown is over, niggaThey even make me get my own hot tea at Panera now
>>10640426The Delta variants along with a high unvaccined rate and rising cases is what is going to keep us in lockdown for another year.
>>10640443We're not in lockdown, you attention-starved hobo
>>10640616See you later on this year when Biden, Newsom enforce a new set of lockdowns and mask mandate.
This shit hits different when you see it in person
Is anyone doing a meetup? >>10639897Requesting more info
Anyone did that little Tokyo AX lite thing?
>>10640865See you next year when you'll still be dutifully posting this shit, like the internet version of those assholes that stand outside the con with signs reading "Repent! The End is Nigh"
>>10640943Aren't they currently holding migrant children in there?
There is speculation that if AX returns next year, they will do a lottery similar to SDCC for badges.
Stupid stream won't load for me now.
>>10640943thats a pretty cool place but rn they have to many homeless that want to stab you or rape you if your a woman>>10641599youre thinking long beach anon
Who’s filling that empty void AX left by going to Little Tokyo?
>>10641919Well here's the line to Anime Jungle.
Anything relatively interesting announced yet?
the lisani concert is up on nyaa
>>10641986Why the fuck.Also>Aniplex Online Fest streaming free with better content, including based SawanoI spent $5 on a milk tea instead, fuck AX Lite
>>10642095>Aniplex Online Fest shitting on AX Lite twice in a row>didn't care to pay for AX Lite and just torrented the concertI'm personally looking forward to the Madoka and SAO Progressive panels. Last year had a lot of fun panels tooFunny how Funimation didn't bother having a stream this year. They sucked last year anyway
>>10641986That’s why I just went to Gunpla section.
>heard a big announcement at AX Lite 2021>based haachama doesn’t get a nendo>Gawr Gura doesSuch fucking bulkshit
>>10642216>Release a Nendo of the most popular Hololiver out there>Don't release a Nendo of likely the next Hololiver to "graduate"It's just business.
>>10641986Anime Jungle isn't that all great of a place to buy weebshit. I don't know why so many people just showed up.
>>10642095>Paying $5 for pre-recorded streams>Love Live! Superstars event was only 15 minutes longYou do know that money won't likely do anything to stop mentally ill people from attacking old Asian people on the streets.>>10642093Thanks Anon, tomorrow will be pretty busy as I have to watch this, Loki, and whatever anime this new summer season just started.
>>10642250Their Gunpla store is based though
>>10641986Nice super spreader event you got there weebs.
>>10642216But she is getting a nendo
>>10642367Tell me doggo is getting one too
>>10642371She is coming in a two pack with Okayu.
I'm already looking forward to AX Lite 2022. Looking forward to see everyone there.
>>10642406And now the waiting game for whether this post will age like milk or whether this post will age like milk
>>10641986Better than the other anime stores selling bootlegged merch
I can't believe another AX has come and gone. I'm already feeling the post-con depression.
>>10642566Oh it will, there are signs that the country is likey heading back to lockdowns in the fall and into 2022 to the point it will disrupt any plans to host an in-person AX.
>>10643109>there are signs that the country is likey heading back to lockdowns in the fall
>>10643109Does anyone else believe that Doomposter gets sexually aroused by posting? Why not open up a Wattpad account and get yourself off?
>>10643466It’s pretty obvious
>>10643109Just leave this earth already if there's no future for you
>no cringe but based Fakku Afterparties AGAINwhy even live, bros
god i hope the cringetuber fad dies off by the time AX 2022 (not-lite) happens
>LA Comic Con now have single day passes>Weekends are broken by a morning and afternoon session>Each session is 5 hours long to better manage crowd density>Each session ticket is $40 +tax>"As our schedule gets locked down and announced, if it turns out you picked the wrong am/pm session, we will guarantee you can switch – No hassle, no fees."It is highly likely AX 2022 will do this also. Welcome to the new normal convention scene.
>>10644996>Pay for a Day 1 morning pass>Entire session spent standing in line>By the time you get inside the convention center, your session has endedMoney well spent as usual.
Alright, haven't kept up with cons since ALA 2020. Are there any LA area cons happening this year or is shit dead until ALA 2022?
>>10645619Animanga and LA Comic Con are currently green lit. I would avoid LACC as >>10644996 brought it up. Could be a mess imho.
>>10644996>All of that>LA Comic ConYeah, that’s gonna be a nope from me.If anyone is into spooky shit, Midsummer Night Scream quickly put together a smaller version of their usual convention at the Pasadena Convention Center for next month.
L.A. County will require masks indoors amid alarming rise in coronavirus caseshttps://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-07-15/l-a-county-will-require-masks-indoors-amid-covid-19-surge?fbclid=IwAR1ApYXXXhmG0gGR48o6SOuQ6qxjZfGcXcNu8DuvomcF5He2hpN3APtZbtcIt looks like the chances of AX happening in 2022 just took a hit.

>>10652501>forgetting January 6, 2021Oh, they can and they will
>>10647549July 2022 is still a year away, it can't get that bad, right?
>>10653046>forgetting that. Republicans can literally ruin everything
>>10641986What am I looking at? anime jungle sucks tho
I saw someone super upset over not winning the world cosplay summit at AX this year. Was this a paid stream or something? I don't see much about it online.
>>10653046The deadly and contagious Lambda variant is here already. If ALA doesn't happen, so does Wondercon, AX, and SDCC.
>>10653817You do realize that AX is held in Los Angles, an extremely liberal city in one of the most liberal states in the US. If anything your post should have been.> Democrats can literally ruin everything
Alright gang, we're back.
>>10663962That's what you think
>>10663962So they're going to stream AX Lite from an empty hall?
