During the last days of the old Anime Vice, a lot of folks were in a rush to save and back up data. For me personally, I prioritized my teammates' wiki work especially our team projects before mine. I manage to save most of my teammates and then mine wiki work. I never had time to save non wiki stuff, and I only save a few. Unfortunately, this was one of projects I didn't save.
What this project was about is showing our passion for conventions by mapping out conventions (anime, comics, and games) around the world where our folks have visited. Ultimately, encouraging our community to visit a convention (try it once to experience and enjoy it, too). Mastermenos (BigHeart711), sickVisionz, and myself co-written a survival guide on tackling your first convention. Giving you guys and gals tips on what you need to know about conventions. It was a fun guide to do.
Please let me know if you have visited an anime convention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this cool thread!
In Baltimore, Maryland, Anime Vice user, DocHaus, visited Otakon.
In Atlanta, Georgia, we have 3 Anime Vice folks. Mastermenos, sickVisionz, and Wales all visited Anime Weekend Atlanta. Also, there is another convention in Atlanta, Georgia, Momocon, where Mastermenos visited each year.
In California, we have 3 folks, Calaggie, PikaHyper and myself. Calaggie visited Fanimecon which is in San Jose while I visited Anime Expo in Los Angeles and Long Beach Comic Con in Long Beach. PikaHyper visited San Diego Comic Con.
Finally, we have very own staff members. Tom Pinchuk and Sam Weller, our Vice Pit crew, visited Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California and New York Comic Con in New York City.
Note: This is the only map I could find. I know I had a map of the UK because in one of my cultural interviews, someone visited a con in the UK. I will try to find out. Furthermore, I had links to everyone's convention blogs in the old Anime Vice as well as information on when they visited a convention. I don't have that information unfortunately. This is what I have from scratch.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.

Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.

Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
