Mini Con certainly stays true to its name. Having been to many conventions held in smaller hotels before, I knew the majority of them weren’t as wholesome as conventions held in conference centers and spacious well-equipped hotels. I believed Mini Con however would be a good experience. Was it? Kind of. I will begin with the […]

Part of my work with ROG is the ability to attend events and host panels. It allows me to promote the site and get the chance to interact with other otakus. Mini Con is one of those events. I don’t always get to host panels, but when I do I make sure they kick butts! […]

Well, well, well- look who’s back. It’s been a while since I’ve made an appearance on here, and with good reason: since the beginning of May, I’ve been on a whirlwind of convention travels- all the way from Charlotte, NC for KiraKiraCon, to Sandusky, OH for Colossalcon, and most recently, Portland, ME for Portcon. In […]

End of panel audience

This year’s Mizucon was held June 14-16 to lovely weather and sunshine at the Miami Sheraton hotel. Mizucon has always been one of my favorite conventions due in no small part from the tremendous effort and love their volunteers and staff put into it. But last year the followers of the con learned Mizucon was […]

If I was to summarize my experience at Hero Hype in two words it would be “laid back.” Conventions in their first year can’t be expected to do much because technically the first year is always more of a trial than a final product. I was familiar with the location, the Ramada Hotel, from going […]

Hurricon is one of those conventions that are only feasible due to the tremendous dedication and love of otakus who want to bring joy to other otakus. I attended Hurricon in its first year, and I can confidently say I’ll keep going for as long as I stay in Florida, but it is a young […]

*Volunteer Positions* While evaluating the state of the Gaming Journalism scene, I noticed that we at Real Otaku Gamer has a unique approach when covering geek/otaku culture. As the site gets restructured and we go into our 3rd year, we are looking to create opportunities that will help the site become more robust and varied […]

As the official brochure below will confirm, I am an official featured guest at this year’s Hurricon. Although I’m not sure I feel completely comfortable about my full name being published but, that’s a minor issue. Two panels will be hosted, below are the titles and times. The History of Vocaloids and their Fandom (3:35-4:35 […]
