The official Introductions

Postby crystalme » Wed Feb 09, 2011 1:15 am

Hey all you anime fans out there!

Introduce yourself and say hi to a newbie!

Here are some questions you could answer:
1. Is this your first year coming to Anime Milwaukee? If not, how many years have you attended?
2. What do you look forward to at the con?
3. What city or state are you from?
4. What are your favorite anime or manga?
5. Favorite video games or table-top games?
6. Do you cosplay?
7. What are you cosplaying this year?
8. Anything else?



Here's mine:
1. Since the infamous blizzard in 2007, I have volunteered for Anime Milwaukee. Yes, I survived the Anime Milwaukee Blizzard- there should be a t-shirt!
2. I always look forward to the Rave, although the Maid Cafe takes priority (since I'm one of the maids this year), and I absolutely have to attend the Midwest Karaoke Madness event to get my sing on!
3. I'm from the glamorous Milwaukee! Home of 4, got it? 4 anime clubs!
- Japanese Animation Association at UW-Milwaukee (our sponsors)
- Vision of Anime
- Anime Underground
- The Greatest Anime Club in Milwaukee (Brand spanking new) :D
4. I like cute and/or dark anime. Gunslinger Girl, Lain, Elfin Lied, Higurashi, Moon Phase, Azumanga Daioh...
I also like anime with awesome music, like Mushi-shi and Paprika!
5. Same goes for video games... My favorite video games are Braid and Portal. I have the soundtrack to Braid and it's wonderful!
6. I cosplay as a purple cat girl usually. I'm too stressed to be anything else this year. As long as Anime Milwaukee rocks your world, I'm happy!
7. I'm cosplaying my usual purple cat girl. Well, and I'll be a maid for Friday and a little bit of Saturday too!
8. I love Purple to bits and bits!

1) Nope, I've been staffing various positions since AMKE 2008
2) I'm looking forward to the AMV contest, which is a good thing since I'm running it. Also, I'm looking forward to having someone not knowing what to put on their badge so I can call them waffles.
3) I'm from Minnesota. You know, the state whose baseball team always hands it to the Brewers
4) That's tough, it's between Clannad (and After Story) and Code Geass
5) Lost Odyssey, no contest. Legend of Zelda takes the top for game series.
6) Nope
7) If I would cosplay, I'd want to be the moon from Majora's Mask
8) I'm getting pretty good at killing forums.
I'm not too bad at restoring forums either...I'm just not quite as good at it as I am at killing them.
Also, I like pizza

Ooh, Goody! I'm glad there are more introductions! Happy to meet you, CosplayCrazy, Papermoon, and Tsunade! And hello again to my fellow staff members!

@ CosplayCrazy: I hope your skit does blow us away!
@ Papermoon: I bet you're really looking forward to Spike Spencer's panels! Have you ever attended his "What Happens At the Con, Stays At The Con" panel?
@ Tsunade: It's awesome that you make costumes! I'm still in the learning process after 5 years of cosplaying. Bought a sewing machine a year ago and only used it once so far, :roll:
