Only 30 days to Sakura Con - and I'm already so ready to be there!

Anyone else going?

WIN A PLAYSTATION 4 AT THE EXTREMELY HARD TAKE-HOME ANIME QUIZ! This is a multiple-choice, open-book, take-home quiz that begins on this site three weeks before the convention. You can look up anything you want to get the answer. The questions are so hard that you probably will not know any of the answers from memory. Instead, you will need to do research into the real world of such topics as art, geography, history, literature, music and science. Hopefully, this will give you a better appreciation of what goes on in anime and some of the hidden meanings behind the material.

That depends on when you bought them... Also, that's for all three days, so not really that bad.

The death of the Sakura-con forums is really killing me. It's impossible to organize anything...

Speaking of which:

I'm running a panel this year that's all about Kantai Collection! The game and surrounding fan community is absolutely huge in Japan but I dare say most people in the US don't really know that much about it, which is why it felt like a good opportunity to have a panel on it. The panel is Friday night and if you want to know what the heck this KanColle thing is all about then please come.

And this is a bit of a long shot, but if you already know what the heck this KanColle thing is all about and you're going to Sakura-Con, then might you consider joining the panel? See, I'd really like to get some more people on it. You don't really have to prepare anything. I have plenty of material, this is really just about getting different opinions on things. Just listening to me talk the whole time is boring, right? If you're interested send me a PM.

I miss the hell out of them too. There's an official Sakura Con group on FB you can try, but it's not really working out that well. Too much noise, not enough signal, and FB really isn't set up all that well for that kind of thing.

I've considered setting up an "unofficial" forum, but running a forum is heavy work and I really don't have the time.

The idea of an unofficial forum has certainly crossed my mind too. But I think the biggest problem would be advertising it. A forum is meaningless without traffic, and being an unofficial forum it's not exactly going to be linked to from the Sakura-con main page. How would most people even find it?

I do not play the game. However I find the character concept intriguing. How well do you know the history of the Nihon Kaigun?
