Be Honest - Who steals at anime expo ?
Posted 6/10/11
I've been to a lot of expo's but I've never stole anything. I believe in karma lol, I'm afraid that something bad would happen to me in return if I even think about taking that 9 dollar figurine or that 15 dollar anime plushie.

I rather just buy it.

never stole from expo and never plan to.
its worth paying for things you love, especially in this industry. I like promoting and having more things created.
its not worth it

Not trying to burst your bubble here but a lot of the things at the cons are bootlegged or don't go to the companies that are translating it =/ It usually goes to a third party.

I have never stolen anything per-say. What happened was one kid ran into a nearby booth knocking DVDs, Manga, and Games all over the floor. All I picked up with random macross DVD while everyone else got to the goods...haha

nobody said you had to buy from them if you don't want to

im just saying its nice to promote or stand behind the creators and their backing. this is also why i promote and pay for premium service for crunchyroll

Wow, I can't believe people steal at anime conventions. If you're young, I guess you're in that rebellious point in your life. If you're at a respectable age, shame on you.

I've never stolen anything, ever, let alone at a huge convention! I witnessed someone trying to steal something last time though, but he was quickly caught by Expo security. If you ask me, he was really stupid to even attempt it considering how strict they are at the MCM Expo.

Some of that sh*t they have at anime conventions is really expensive. I went to one a couple months ago and there were Pokemon plush toys, maybe a foot tall, adorable nonetheless, for like $30 - 50. Anime, manga, drama, light novels, etc. that they had there were also expensive, especially in original packaging. And don't get me started on the games imported from Japan .

To answer the question, though, no, I have never stolen from an anime convention. However, I have helped sneak a couple friends into one without paying, and I have shoplifted manga and Japanese toys from other locations.

Theft is illegal.
As a law student, I know better than to throw my future away for a couple manga/ anime/ merchandise.
Plus, you can watch and read stuff online (even though it's piracy and yes, I do feel the pain of my own hypocrisy)

I've seen kids do it and I just think to myself that is $30-$80 worth having a tainted record?

nope. If I saw something on the ground, I'd bring it over to the Information Booth area and have them hold on to it.

There's a picture floating around the internet of a Sasuke cosplayer getting arrested (because he was caught stealing at a convention).
