Hello everyone, I'm S. Nice to meet you all.
1. Is this your first year coming to Anime Milwaukee? If not, how many years have you attended?
Two years and soon going on three. Pre-registered in July. First year I was there advertising a convention which is no more.
2. What do you look forward to at the con?
The first thing I look for in a convention is the panels. Panels are the core educational value of the convention and its leverage. From there I weigh the cost of membership versus what the convention provides. Without panels which teach and inform a convention only holds its weight as a 3rd party proxy to meet friends which I do not require assistance in that.
The second thing I look forward to at any convention is the entertainment value, room parties in particular because a room party is mostly designed as a advertisement mechanism at many conventions. "Come sign up, we're fun!"
And finally. As a passtime I like to watch. As creepy as hell as that sounds. Observing any fandom Can speak volumes of their wants and needs, their financial status, their goals. How they treat and view others in public space. It's all interesting stuff..
3. What city or state are you from?
4. What are your favorite anime or manga?
Dragon Century, Escaflowne, Ghost in the Shell, Urotsukidoji, Cowboy Bebop, Wakfu, Mezzo Forte, FLCL, Dead Leaves, Dragon Drive, Vexille, Summer Wars. and although 30+ years ahead of it's time, Heavy Metal.
5. Favorite video games or table-top games?
The Fallout series, Unreal Tournament, Shogo, Titus the Fox, the Grand Theft Auto Series, Rocket Knight
Rifts, Shadowrun, Albedo, Ironclaw, AD&D 2nd edition, Khaotic, Battletech.
6. Do you cosplay?
7. What are you cosplaying this year?
I said no!
8. Anything else?
Been doing cons since 1985 where my first convention was X-Con 7 at the Mt. Olympia Resort in Oconomowoc. Although that convention was Science Fiction I still remember the guy with the BetaMAX going episode after episode of Robotech (and fast forwarding through the singing parts). I always look forward to the next convention and hope to see you all soon.
