Since this sums up my Katsucon 19 experience quite well…
Facebook status, 2/20/13-
“Katsucon; awesome freakin’ time >.< Compared to how it was at the Omni hotel when I went 7-8 years ago, totally night & day from then to now & I tots plan to make this con a permanent stop on my con tour to Otakon. I enjoyed the con activities, my roommates, my cosplays, my panels, & just everything…for the most part. To sum up everything:
-Cosplay Chess: Was Black Queen (as Kiritsugu Emiya from Fate/Zero), Irisviel von Einzbern was Black King (husbandu/waifu team >.<), got to kill people in character, totally rad time
– I enjoyed every panel I attended. They were all very informative, fun, & even got me into a new anime or 2
-Holy, Jesus, my Yaoi panel was the sh*t (@.@) I think I enjoyed that *almost* as much as the audience I had, whom were awesome BTW -^.^-
-I was able to make my ‘Guide to BUYING ALL THE THINGS’ panel last a full 2 hours. I was afraid I would be wholly under time, but with the help of the audience, I was able to fill up that chunk of time nicely.
-Heck, I like the audience for all my panels. They may have hated me, but I enjoyed them BD
-GUILTY PLEASURE: Decided that I would buy an art book…for Queen’s Blade (for the art!)
-Like mentioned before, found 2 new awesome series to watch that really show a new perspective of how some Japanese view their actions in the WWII, symbolically of course (Sora no Woto [Sound of the Sky] & Night Raid 1931)
-Umm…the Jews (sorry for how that sounds). There was a Jewish Youth Convention (BBYO) happening at the same time, they acted like they owned everything, treated Katsu people like 2nd class citizens/freaks, kept wandering into our stuff but had their ‘space’ under lock & key (hired their own security to, essentially, hassle Katsu ppl. & ‘protect them from the freaks’), & basically were total d*uches. Not trying to be anti-Semitic, but that’s just how it was. Katsu ppl. weren’t perfect either, but you would expect better from this group of ppl. due to religion & all…or just better freakin’ upbringing -_-
-I went to this panel (Con Rage, which was totally awesome by the way), where the point was to give the audience & the panelists themselves a chance to rant about things they absolutely couldn’t stand that happened during the course of Katsucon. It was 18+ & it was really great and entertaining…until that one, d*ckless wonder d*uche of a pasty white twig (who also happened to be one of the co-panelists) had to pull one of “That Guy” moments. Basically, he did a “I know more than the panelist did”… on one of my panels (Bleach, here’s a link to the panel BTW: https://fevryone.wordpress.com/con-things/panel-series/katsucon-19-2013/resources-for-katsucon-19-panels/). Let me put it this way, he didn’t expect me to be in the audience & he sure as hell wasn’t prepared for the…tongue lashing he got from me. Hell, the audience was so hype at that point both of us got drowned out & the other co-panelists quickly changed the topic. To further elucidate, this guy said absolutely nothing proving he knew s*it about anything during or after my panel via face-to-face or e-mail, & as far as I’m concerned, if you can’t prove you “know more” then you don’t, & you need to sit your concave c*ck down & STFU X/ I wasn’t angry, ‘cause I had a chance to defend myself, but I will be writing a post about this later on my blog. Needless to say, if you think a panelist got some piece of info. wrong on their panel, tell them about it, don’t be the passive-aggressive d*ckless s*it that goes to ANOTHER PANEL to talk s*it about the panelist. You look like a coward, which is what I called him practically to his face ~.~ (Nobody f**k’s with DJ Date Masamune -.-)
-First time with a long-haired wig (both Riviera & Irisviel, but mainly Irisviel), drove me freakin’ crazy >.<*
-My panel, Tales of Panels, was at 3 in the freakin’ morning & had *very* little attendance, which I also blame on an ambiguous name (since most ppl. don’t read the description of panels in the guide), but its serious lack of attendees can be blamed primarily on a s**tty time slot
Overall, fantastic con, especially looking at how much it’s grown, & I’m definitely looking forward to next year.
