Same shiz different thread. Except now it’s the beginning of con season.

How come London MCM isn't mentioned on here?
>>10842028Because as I say every thread I just Google “upcoming uk anime cons” and paste the contents of the frist link. I don’t bother to check. I don’t know every con, in just provide a bit of useful info before we inevitably start bitching about something unrelated. Feel free to post dates of stuff Its missed in any subsequent posts. Or you can accuse me of being a shill for one of the no name local events probably in this list. Either is fine.
feeling the hype for kokoro lads?
>>10842028This. Dunno why we have AL noncecons on there and MegaCon but not MCM? Anyway, I hope they're still doing October in London, their site says nothing about one yet. >>10842031Excited for it. Getting in on Friday though, hopefully won't miss much.
>>10842028Because everyone is aware of MCM.
>>10842031Kita killed my hype
>>10842031Hoping the contenders don't back down from the inevitable fight
>>10842031kokorocon.net/what-to-expect>Watch this space for further confirmation.>Watch this space for further confirmation.>Watch this space for further announcements.>Watch this space for further information on the themes for each night.The gaming section sent my sides into orbit
>>10842142>>10842031The event Schedule is on twitter. There's a lot of gaps.
>>10842147why the fuck does the games room close at 5:30pm
>>10842149Force you all to go to the parties to make them seem popular
I mean I actually think that time table is pretty busy, more so than Ame and Kita anyway. Don't most gaming rooms close at 5 ? Either way I'm hype lads. Let's go
Jesus fucking christ, you can tell that this place is full of AL tossers.
How so ? Due to the head Post pretty much being an AnimeLeague advertisement ? Yep. Don't need towerrs trying to grab my pussy again.It's very sad that AL never grow up or previous ALers are just very bitter of other events. Cowards.Either way? Many cons planned this yeah which I will enjoy because I'll be with good pals!Vy4vr2
Agreed anon.But looks like you typed your captcha in the wrong place
>>10842153Agreed anon... AL will never change.But I think you typed you captcha in the wrong place.. rookie move.
>Criticize any non-profit con>"THIS BOARD IS FULL OF ALCON SHILLS"
>>10842147Queer and neurodivergent panel only an hour long. Come on, my dude. At least narrow down the subject a little.
>>10842153Christ. Fine next time I make a thread I’ll not bother listing stuff and you can all figure out whats running by knowing already. Then we can get straight into moaning about discord quicker.>>10842154Now their argument is invalid.
>>10842195Thank you for your hard work, thread creator anon.
>>10842142Did they ever announce any guests or is this going to be another event where the guest that noone really cared about no shows?
>>10842201The staff know nobody gives a fuck about guests at cons, kokoro is the peak of 'everyone is just here to dress up and drink with their mates' cons
>>10842198Thanks, it’s hard work timing it so the new post kills the old And pushed it off the catalogue. Sometimes I’m awake for hours, waiting. Thankfully monster rangers ultra gives me the pep I need.
>>10842204But they got an American voice actor, Jessica Calvello.>Jessica Calvello is an American voice actress and production assistant primarily known for her anime voiceover work, particularly with ADV Films, Seraphim Digital/Sentai Filmworks, DuArt Film and Video, Media Blasters, Funimation, Central Park Media, Headline Sound Studios, New Generation Pictures, NYAV Post, 4Kids Entertainment and also known for her non-anime voice work on a number of animated shorts by, Cyanide and Happiness. Some of her more well known roles are Excel in Excel Saga, Nanael in Queen's Blade, Kanako Miyamae in Maria Holic, Pico in boku no pico, Zoe Hange in Attack on Titan and Honey Kisaragi in New Cutey Honey, in which she was personally cast by the creator of the Cutey Honey franchise, Go Nagai, a role that Calvello describes as her most cherished and honored accomplishment.
>>10842205Nusse? Is that you?
>>10842222No it's me, Anon.
>>10842222Always has been. I mean… no
>>10842209a literal who, but that's okay
>>10842276Excel saga was great. I’d get stuff signed if I still had the dvds somewhere,
>>10842209I miss when ame and aya used to get Matt Mercier and a bunch of other voice actors and do "DON'T RECORD THIS" after hours Q&A panels and talk about how shit the VA industry was and creepy fan encounters.
>>10842284That one where he talked about some unpleasant dialogue he had to say for hellsing was interesting.
>>10842289The "I'm going to put my fingers inside you!" Line?
>>10842146>>10842147>>10842148No hentai panel. Are they doing a secret one again?
>>10842296Unless you count Pokémon smash or pass but that sounds a little cringe desu
>>10842289That or the “I’m going to tenderly hand hold the corpse of a lady I’ve just made not alive in front of this child”
>>10842148>Get paid to write thingsThis is going to be that Mikkelson twins audible scam
>>10842026Lot of AL in that list, sickening.Most of the AL events will be Genshit cos magnets now if they keep having D tier voice actors. Let that sink in.
>>10842331Have you not been to any con post covid? It's all genshin impact, a few vtuber cosplays and critical role
>>10842349It was like that pre covid too
>>10842147>>10842148>>10842146Holy fucking shit so this is what s 300 attendee con looks like jfc. No wonder the boomers here just sit in a corner and drink aldi vodka all day.
>>10842378Still salty you're on the waitlist anon?
>>10842378Get your facts straight anon, it’s not a 300 attendee con. There’s way more. I get you must have some issue with the committee and live in Towers ass but at least have the balls to say it
300 anon is probably mixing up hotel room capacity and attendees. Does anyone know the real number?
>>10842481i'm pretty sure i read 650 somewhere, but that needs confirmation
One thing im tired of seeing the same shops over and over without anything new just changing the prices to adapt for what they pay for the stand.Sometimes it seriously gives me the vibes that they are laundrying money with them.
>>10842378It does make me laugh that you are mocking the number of panels going on.. you do know that's quite a lot for this kind of event ? It's actually a lot more than Kita and Ame had.The only event I know of that has a load of panels is AL Events, but they overload themselves with complete trash... not to point the finger, but I think you are comparing it to that. So honestly get your facts straight.and yes I beleive it's 600-650 people attending. Kokoro was probably one of the best residential cons I had ever attended and it was very heartwarming.I feel bad because this time last year I was slating kokoro and bitching about it, but after attending, I was proven wrong. I was just bitter that alcon stopped as I enjoyed that, but it was ran by a nonce, so understandable. 3 more weeks though! Let's do this!
>>1084248This about MCM?Yeah they do a first come first serve with dealers... but there are select few that get priority.MCM is awful now days
Are dealer tables normally this much? I don't think any other con advertises how much tables cost.
>>10842558Does seem high. Does include membership tho. Dunno if dealers care about that though.
>>10842558As a dealer at Kokoro last year, I can honestly say that those prices are decent considering it includes my membership and discounted ticket for my partner,pretty much every other con I do costs a lot more. I was at Megacon the week before and it was awful, I did kokoro and I did exceptionally well. Hoping I make the big bucks again this year.
>>10842571Praying 4 u anon. If you're the dealer I think you are, I'd buy more blind boxes from you but I can't make it this year.
>>10842487>its alot of content for a 300 man con!!!
>>10842589We get it "furry who isn't going to kokoro" you're salty that there's not enough tickets and have convinced yourself it's only 300 because why else would you, the main character, be in a waiting list of all things
>>10842677it's not that he's on the waiting listit's that he's banned
Discord wankers playing guess who again
Someone's got a wild pigeon in a nappy on a lead in the bar at minami. During a fucking bird flu outbreak.
>>10842950For real? That’s something you don’t see often. People usually moan about the older people bringing kids to the hotel Lobby area to catch up. Or that one chill comfort dog. Not a pigeon. Any pics?
>>10842950Any other community I'd call bullshit but I'm not even surprised someone would try this.
>>10842950Just seen it on Instagram
>>10843014I bet that diaper could cut diamonds
>>10843014I can't get the image of it getting pinged around on the end of its leash as it tries to fly away
>>10843014This seems both incredibly unhygienic and quite cruel
>>10843014What the fuck is wrong with britfags? Can't you just get a dog or something?
>>10842950There were little germ carriers running around all weekend, cold & flu still rife, packed panels in small rooms and a crowded bar, shite weather with con goers coughing their lungs up and you think a rescued pigeon is the end of the world because of bird flu? Mate. Even the hotel had no problem with it. You have to get full permission to even make sure that's okay to begin with. The owner was chill asf and informative. It's a fucking pigeon, not a bald eagle.
>>10843187Shit con shitDead con dead
>>10843187>chill asf and informativeHi, I'm dull and have no personality so I bought this pidgin that I drag around everywhere to make me seem more interesting
>>10843097seethe. pigeons are the superior pet
>>10843196You're right, don't see this con lasting more than a couple of years... oh wait XD
>>10843187He put the bird down as a cockatoo.And at least raptor owners know that they have to educate themselves on their care, get them checked by vets regularly and follow the very important rules in place right now due to the bird flu outbreak. His precious pet could die horribly because he wanted to get more attention and fake a personality for the weekend.>>10843234Pigeons are cool pets, as are other birds, but best kept at home rather than in a bar
>>10843333>He put the bird down as a cockatoo.What
>>10842950Why can't people just keep their babies; furry, feathered or scaled at home? There's got to be better ways to get attention without putting others at risk. I just had a family member die from complications of Psittacosis which can lie dormant for ages and it can really fuck you up.
>>10843363Yeah, then it resurrected as a pidgin
>>10843570Let me guess you're vaxxed and still wear the mask?
>>10843577Kys anti vax scum
>>10843600Yep, seething rage for my nonconformity to your jab cult
big win for /vp/sisters
>>10843570hopefully the rest of your family dies too
Who is it that went to Minami and knew they had covid then?
>>10843649You first, dickmunch.
>>10842146>>10842147>>10842148>7 fucking quizzes
>>10843815Cry more period pants
>>10843815Maybe next year you can submit an event that isn't a quiz
>>10843815>>10843822Imagine wasting your time going to a tiny con where you do jack shit outside generic bar quizzes. The average age of these guys must be in the mid 30s at least and not even cosplaying(probably for the best). Yuck!
>>10843836God forbid people get old but maintain the same hobbies. That said, were the quizzes ever fun, even a few years ago?
>>10843836> over 600 people> tiny con Stay seething waitlist cuck
>>10843868>600Mate, the greggs in a village next to leeds has more daily patrons. Dead fucking con.
>>10843836Oh so you prefer a con with children in cosplay? You fucking nonce.
>>10843836You sound pleasant. Glad you’re not going.
>>10843737Is there actually any proof of this or is it tactic from a certain couple that try to push their mask wearing agenda every year?
>>10843958I don't think any UK non-profit con gives a shit about masks. Giving gophers like Ashram another rule to lord over people is the last thing they want to be doing.
>>10843988He's a notorious gopher in the UK. Only around because no one else wants to sit on a door and badge check all day.
>>10843991not sure if you're retarded or not but Serebii runs the biggest/longest running Pokemon fansite on the internet
>>10843951It should be mandatory for teens to do sexy cosplays
>>10843962Do any UK cons at all actually give a shit about this anymore?Blows my mind to see the US scene still gripped by this
>>10844069I mean, i get sick pretty much every time i go to a con, covid or not. But thats just my weak immunocompromised ass.
>>10844049He was replying to the comment about ashram gopher guy but tagged the wrong post.
>>10844069Not now it’s no longer a legal requirement but there’s a small group that would love to keep it all going. They are gagging for testing, masks, distancing to be back in place.
>>10844069It seemed like a year ago everyone collectively forgot that covid happened, suddenly there was no more mask wearing, no more talks about vaccines, no social distancing
>>10843951>33yo boomer going hystericalYou have no idea how much cringe youre displaying to anyone 29 and below
>>10844069no because brits are too humble to cause a scene to tell you to mask up
>>10844083What’s the alternative? At some point things had to adjust back to (a new) normal. I would argue that influenza can be equally as deadly but we continue with life regardless.
>>10844243And just like Flu covid is pretty much endemic now, on the plus side it appears to have evolved to be somewhat less deadly, and can be mitigated with vaccines. It's pretty much going to end up blending into the melange of seasonal coofs until the next big thing strikes.
>>10844243I expected it to slowly die out and the paranoia to remain for a good five years, maybe masks remain mandatory in hospitals and GP centres. It seemed to completely disappear in a matter of weeks. All of the big covid fearers I knew forgot so quickly.>>10844247It was always a seasonal flu, don't know a single person who died from it and whenever I got lectured on its deadliness the people other people knew who died from it were like 85
>>10844251At the risk of "literally who?" Luche from the kita committee/long time genuinely decent member of the anime community died from COVID. Of all the weebs it could have taken it took one of the few upstanding ones.
>>1084426110,000 to 25,000 people die from the flu every year
>>10844318That's the US get the fuck out of the UK thread
>>10844322https://www.bmj.com/content/333/7579/1142.5I'll assume that you weren't brave enough to even read the title, but here's it also on the BMJ website
Imma keep it real.If you die or suffer from covid, you are either obese or born with a bunch of defects. The world has moved on.Also age related, but you shouldn't be going into cons you fucking pedo.
>>10844348When do I automatically become a pedo for attending a con. I just need to check Logan’s run style if it’s still ok with you to have hobbies.
>>1084437440+yo is pedo unless ur just bringing ur kid along.30+ is cringe boomer range you really need to evaluate your life.
Are people actually saying conventions should only be for people in their 20s?!? Because of course once u hit 30 all hobbies cease to exist…..?
>>10844415Age appropriate hobbies anon, idk, shit like knitting, antiquing, model building. Gentle hobbies because going to cons is cringe and too physically demanding for your frail frames.
Over 30sisters, it’s over. Time to report to carousel
>>10844397>>10844423Can you just go to a zoomer discord instead of being such a killjoy here?If you haven't figured it out already the people organizing conventions are usually older than 30
>>10844397This nigga scared of wizards!
>>10844423>>10844423Ok, I’m 34. That doesn’t mean it’s the end of my life so I should stay inside with knitting and antiquing. I still ‘gasp’ like anime and enjoy conventions with like minded people. U can piss off into whatever hole you crawled out of, guessing your mummies puss as you’re so young?
Anyone going to FFXIV Fanfest in October?
>>10844458You assume anyone actually got tickets.
>>10844397hi there 20 year old waste of oxygen, what convention do you help with? oh really? none? you just shitpost on a site that was around before you could wipe your own arse? wow, you’re so awesome! thank you for everything you do
>>10844460i'm just assuming i'll get a ticket in the general sale too
>>10844247>It's pretty much going to end up blending into the melange of seasonal coofs until the next big thing strikes.It's over m8Your days of larping seasonal coofs are overCope & sperg
>>10844397>people actually think like thisyou'll hit puberty soon anon
>>10844493It happened to me, someone broke into my house, stole all my anime dvds, figures and niknacks etc. then they swapped out all my Levi’s for gap chinos, git rid of my Jordan’s and replaced them with loafers. All my band T-shirts were shredded infront of me and replaced with polo shirts in basic colours and my hair line receded And greyed. My gaming PC was replaced with a last gen iPad with only fruit ninja, clash of clans and some sort of train /railroad game. Then they emptied my fridge of monster energy and pizzas and just left me with a Huel subscription. Even my motorbike was replaced with a decade old ford focus.I am a broken man. This happened overnight the day I turned 30. I have to read GQ magazine now to find some semblance of what I am supposed to do and how to live.
>>10844501I'd say you could invest in something cool like home theatre as a boomer, but nothing like being stuck in a 2 bed terraced newbuild with paper thin walls despite being over 30. My parents had a 5 bedroom detached when they were my age.
>>10844506>2 bed terraced newbuild with paper thin walls despite being over 30.>My parents had a 5 bedroom detached when they were my age.Thanks for ruining my vibe
>>10844461Clowns like you are why non-profits are dying.
>>10844445You can like anime.Stay the fuck out of conventions unless it's something like MCM where you just buy shit and fuck off back home.>>10844461>boomer "helping out" by being some cringelord gopher/setting up pub quiz events in an anime con full of young cosplayersYou're like that grandpa that asks their son what he thinks of the 3rd star trek movie.
>>10844545What do you think of it? I liked the voyage home more. Or wrath of khan.
>>10844531Why?>>10844545>Stop having fun!
>>10844545I suppose the small scale of UK cons isn't helping, they can't manage the something for everyone aspect that our larger cousins in Europe and America can manage. Maybe the alternative is advocating for more boomer cons, like Minami
>boomer conWhen did you grow up and stop caring about needing feel edgy and grown up with offensive things and swear words to be an adult?
MCM and Megacon are both on this weekend...
Kokoro is next weekend. Excitement!
>>10844679WHICH ONE WILL BE EMPTIER ANON?
im pickle rick
>>10844689I've been dreading the drama in my friend group. It's got to the point where it's overshadowing the event. I hope the games room is half decent so I can brain off and play rhythm games all weekend.
>>10844865Get new friends.
>>10844865What’s the drama anon?
>>10844869Probably another predator.
>>10844865>he doesn't knowthey got rid of the rhythm games this year as they were "too loud" compared to the other games, they're not even bringing a DDR machine
>>10844879Anime screening still running?
>>10844545young cosplayers doing fuck all to run the events and then complaining old ass boomers are at the event, why do you bother getting out bed anon?
Heard through the grapevine that a few of the unwanted are going to be loser-conning in Nottingham for Kokoro, maybe being enabled by their predator buddies. Keep ye eyes out.
>>10844885as if you'll do anything
>>10844879If this is another kitacon games situation, I'm going to cry
>>10844880It's on the schedule, so I guess
>>10844885"Unwanted"Name names coward
>>10844885i hope they get you
>>10844894What happened? Was the games crap last time?
>>10844894you WILL play the console Taiko and you WILL enjoy it da-don
>>10844911It had 1/4 of the usual set up. Most of the room was left barren.
>>10844885Dairy knows he's getting knocked out if he shows his face lol, there are like 10 people going who want jump himEven he isn't that stupid
>>10844930so stupid. whats he actually done?
>>10844932If you don't know you weren't part of it and ye can fuck off trying to scrape for IntelHe is a sexual predator and will get what is coming to him
>>10844913same one I played at mcm 09, I'm sure. kinda miss ddr:uk
>>10844933so hes done basically nothing is that it.if he was really a predator id think youd be happy to post what hes actually done eh not scraping for intel in the least bit

>>10845370This feels pretty self explanatory if I'm honest anon
Kockfucks and non brits get outWho will I see at MCM and Megacon Brum this weekend?
>>10845383Which mcm?Also how dare we be excited for an upcoming con that was pretty good last year
>>10845398infested london, where else?
>>10845403That's in May you fucking retard
No fucking wayWas literally just talking to a mate 20 mins ago about how I probably wouldn't be doing a summer con this year because Ame were yet to announce anythingGuess I'll eat those words lmao
>>10845425No way is anyone paying for tickets 2 weeks after Megacon and a week after Kokoro.Enjoy the empty steps
>>10845445How big is megacon anyway compared to mcm? Seems kinda dead but slightly more weabish ig
>>10845471The hall at last year's Megacon Brum was terrible, Btec version of MCM and saw it all in about 15 minutes. Had a fun time though because a lot of mates also went.The organisers run a TikTok convention called TokFest alongside it - it looked shit and attracted a shit crowd with it
>>10845484Looked up tokfest. Going through some of the guests tiktoks is an easy way to ruin your morning.
>>10845484>BrumThere's the problem, it's a universal truth that there is nothing good I'm Birmingham. No good Venus, no good events, no good food, not even good people, native ones at least.
>>10845484I thought it felt like old mcm before it got swarmed by normies and kids.
>>10845522Think about who their fans must be and, yeah, it makes attending Megacon a worse experience.Last year TokFest attendees got free access to Megacon and it appears the events somewhat overlap again this year. How much exactly idk>>10845541The Wetherspoons had the smallest selection of bevs I've ever encountered. 0/10>>10845554Megacon is run by one of the original MCM organisers from before it was sold to ReedPop
>>10845554>>10845568Whys it only up norf? Reedpop paid excel off? Will it ever be as big as It used to be?
>>10842026Is Manc Anime and Gaming con worth going to, or should I just wait for Megacon?
MAGC is like mega... only shittier. Mega's on the same weekend as Manchester Comic Con (Monopoly). Mega's is like a "knock off" MCM without them gettin sued for trying to be the same which is why they run tokfest to be different enough that Reedpop doesn't care.
>>10845628Mega is filling the gaps in the con calendar that MCM left when they stripped their events back to just 3 a year (MCM London May/October and MCM Birmingham November)It's an interesting move as I'd think surely ReedPop have stopped running the events that are unprofitable, but Mega thinks they're worthwhile I guess.>>10845734Pretty sure the reason the official name is "MegaCon Live" is because of the MegaCon in the US lol. Risky name choice if you ask me
>>10845734Last year we went to MCM on sat and Mega on sun and even the sunday event was better so I have no issue completely ignoring MCM
>>10845739>>10845747so is it better for someone up norf to just travel 30 mins to megacon on july for 5quid instead of spend 700+ for train/hotels on MCM this may?If shits just the same I'd rather keep the 700quid for a ps5 or a new switch or someshit.
>>10845895Not been to Megacon Manchester, it's smaller than Birmingham.I'm in souf but m8s in norf are going to Mega Manchester again because local and cheap.I wouldn't spend £700 on MCM May, it's hardly worth £75 (weekend ticket price) for a nerdy car boot sale.
>>10845913just there for the crowds m8. but I guess the crowd in mcm isnt worth payng 700 extra for
I finally understand why the UK Con scene is such a fucking joke, including the major ones.
>>10846051Give us the run down, anon.
>>10845913It's honestly worth dropping one or two cons to pay for an actual holiday, maybe with friends
Megacon brum was actually pretty decent. Not nearly as many people as MCM but that's one of the upsides, it's not crowded and feels comfy. Hall was more 50/50 on artists vs dealers too compared to MCM being like... 30/70. NEC is much nicer than the Excel too, cheaper and you have the spoons to hang out in after the con
>>10846124I'm biased, but I do think NEC is undervalued as a venue, and underused by MCM brum. Last time I went they barely used a single hall, and not even one of the bigger ones. Though IMO MCM Oct/nov are too close together and it should be moved to Feb or something. And if you want grub nicer than what spoons offers theres the big new place they built by the lake too.
>>10846063People have been saying this for years. It only gets worse as time goes on. Paying over £500 this weekend to stay in Nottingham, marathon shitty quizzes and play not-rhythm games. Peer pressure is a bitch.
>>10846124Good to hear anon! It looked better than last year's from what I saw on Instagram. Noticed it was in different halls this time but still had TokFest next to it>>10846139Yeah, and many cons in the UK scene are too close together in general. MegaCon Manchester and Monopoly's Comic Con Manchester run on the same weekend ffs>>10846142What's the deal with KokoroCon? I thought it was just some tiny hotel con in Nottingham
>>10846154TokFest was in the hall directly next to it and you could walk between both pretty easily, your wristband got you into both. Surprisingly I hardly noticed the other people going just for that, they felt like typical MCM normies>>10846139They used the same halls as MCM this time (the ones you get to with the skybridge) which is the much nicer part of the NEC. That lakeside place is great, lots of con people were hanging out there even until midnight
>>10846154Re: Kokoro It's just a small con in Nottingham. They're forced to use venues that aren't university campuses because of the timing conflicts with other cons. It's a shame. They seem very ambitious unlike ame and kita.
