Happy 19th Birthday 4chan!




Summer is over, mostly uneventful con wise, somewhat dramatic real world wise. Other than that everything is same old same old. Long live the King.

Cba. Add other cons in a list if you know they exist. I’m out of the loop and wouldn’t know what to look for other than “upcoming uk anime cons” which is what is presented here.

Is London A&G Con even any gud, or what's gud coming up? Me and a mate just did Sheffield last weekend was fun but too little to do for a 2-day event.

Yeah it is the greatest. The event organiser is a stand up guy, you can ask my mum.

I've never hosted a meet before and only ever attended one previous one. Please frens do you have any tips for doing this and having it not be a total clusterfuck? Do I need to hire a photographer? Are there some certified good locations for meets to be held and not be trampled by crowds?
>>
>>10807189
Pick a location, a time and a date. Everything else will occur naturally. There's nothing to lose but maybe 30 minutes of waiting.

>>10807192
Thank you based Osakaposter.

DO NOT hire a photographer out of your own pocket for other people.

If you reach out there's plenty of friendly peeps in the community who'll tog for you for free.

I for one would like a new british cgl discord

-not run by any of the former circlejerk
-any attempt to reinstate the circlejerk is met with immediate bans
-we just talk shit between cons and hang out at cons, none of this romance and soap opera nonsense that killed the last one
-the return of fun gull meets with strangers at cons

so basically I want 2017 gullcord back kek. But a fresh start going back to the real roots of a cgl con meets discord would be dope.
>>
>>10807860
You are a) absolutely pathetically obsessed with me and b) part of the circlejerk I was referring to. Don't worry, it's mutual. Now try and go two days without posting about me on 4chan, I believe in you sweetie.
>>
>>10807859
Bit of a pipe dream, you just know dairy is going to try to bring back britgulls once he thinks everyones forgotten or forgiven him (So... Spring 2023)

Which is just grim, since they've demonised people for far less than what he's done.
>>
>>10807862
Would you call it more or less pathetic than hanging out in a thread where not a single soul wants to associate with you anymore?

You should throw dairy a message, maybe he'll finally respond to you now he has nobody else!

>>
>>10807875
Why does everyone love demo so much?
>>
>>10807880
Demo is the only gull who loves themselves, so manages to convince everyone else to love him too.
>>
Im surprised that you did not mention MCM London in the list.

Is it worth it to Join Anime League Discord or should I be wary of the rumours?

>>10807880

He's just cute

>>10807885
Anon, you might not have heard of it because you don't have an ounce of it inside you. But this is what normal non insane people call "Charisma" and Demo has it in spades.

>>10807903
I mean, talk shit and stuff, and I know we're on 4chan but I still feel the whole KYS thing is just that bit too far.
>>
>>10807909
Nah, she truly is scum of the earth

If only she used that recruitment money to buy a likeable personality instead of haircuts from a barber that obviously thought she was as much of a cunt as everyone else does
>>
Who is this Wib and Demo. Can someone give me a resume?
>>
>>10807916
Demo is basically olimar but collects people instead of pikmin
>>
>>10807916
Both will attempt to ruin you if you cross them, or disagree with them
>>
>>10807859
We don't need a discord, why don't we just organise meets in these threads instead
>>
what, so the same people can show up?

would be very funny, but unless you have a plan to introduce about 30 new faces to this thread before the next meet, i'd say it's better left alone

I always wanted to ask. Is it true the rumors of the selected illuminaughty meetings in MCM?
>>
>>10809130
So in other words, CON ORGANISERS DO BETTER
>>
>>10809457
In all fairness it's a gaming focused event, I typically end up hanging around the indie games that you don't have to queue to play (and don't end up buying..), the cosplay side of things is a little bit sad... but eh.

Never ever

Because if he ever tries to start it up again he will be buried under an avalanche of people who know better than to let him near women

>>10810475
sorry to hear you never made yourself popular enough to be invited to the new gang

can confirm ape escape guy and his mates are still alive and kicking

there is no drama anymore, only a nazi with a funny haircut that is going to get her teeth kicked in come april, and the old gullcord server owner who is banned from every con that means anything
>>
>>10810475
Predator is manipulative, checks out. I wonder if all his exes were "crazy"as he claimed they were.
>>
>>10810480
Honestly the whole nazi accusation thing is pretty surreal. I mostly remember them as being the most woke person on the block and a diehard crusader for various causes.

Every thread I look at on 4chan with the intention of making friends is just full of hostility and drama. I feel like i'm really trying here to do some sort of socialization but everywhere just seems so angry and that's not what i'm looking for.

>>
>>10810516
i find people on discord to be much more rude, when you are both anonymous its much easier to assess criticism objectively rather than know someone specifically knows you, doesn't like you, and will target you for anything you say. thats why i didn't make friends on discord, imply that you have one 'wrong' opinion and you are marked, nothing happens after that matters. hate spaces are more to do with keyboard comfort than anonymity.

>>
>>10810721
There's 54 people posting on this thread, the people here are a fraction of a percentage of con attendees, don't pretend this is anything more than a small group constantly getting mad about nothing and con shills posting to drum up fake controversy to promote their events
>>
>>10810721
I think theres just a general sense of frustration that no anime con in the UK has cracked the big event formula, and AL are quite happy with their "roll up the day before and set up some folding tables" format, which is lacklustre but works for them I guess.
>>
>>10810545
I have noticed this as well. Cosplayers from outside the UK are much more friendly. Whereas no one is ever actually friends in the UK con scene. It's just "allies" you can get drunk with, but will stab you in the back if you do things they don't like.
>>
>>10810922
I think you hit the nail on the head. Big events always seem to get formulaic or worse regulated to hell. Small ones often lack content / energy / attendees. Medium is best but ironically quite rare.

Having been to a few AL events now I'd call them conventions on wheels. Yeah I didn't see any men in trench coats running off with lolis under their arms. I also saw that it was a bit rough round the edges, cheep and cheerful. You wouldn't pay for a hotel room for an AL event but since they are like a traveling circus moving round the country you won't have to.

How do I go about getting a cosplay gf at MCM this month? Is there some anime character that's hot right now that I should go as?
>>
>>10810960
Luffy's always get laid
>>
>>10810960
People here overstate how hard it is to pull at MCM. If you have a decent costume, aren't completely fucked looking and know what to say to a woman you'll pull. MCM lasses are easy.
>>
>>10810981
Fair enough but where do I actually go? Last time I went to MCM it was just a big hall full of people selling shit. Where are the places that I can actually go and meet people?
>>
>>10810962
I’m 5’5 balding and about 200lbs. Will this criteria still get me some action? I don’t want to buy the shorts and a straw hat if it’s not going to work.
>>
>>10810989
100% guaranteed, but you have to make the straw hat yourself.
>>
>>10810960

Itou from Genshin Impact
>>
>>10811028
Good job I spend so much time on a Mongolian basket weaving forum. I’m sure a hat wouldn’t be too much of a change. I’ll get started then
>>
>>10810989
It's not guaranteed, but it's your best bet imo. The characters personality plus the aesthetic of the cosplay gives you a very good chance.
>>
>>10810989
Don't forget to dislocate both your arms for authentic rubber arms action
