I am just curious as to why ACen forced out the anime punch group along with flyingelf?

I'm curious about this as well.... "Your favorite anime sucks" was a very popular and well recived panel as well as last years league of legends panel. It does seem like they have something against them....

Indeed, he used to always host the forum meet and greet on Thursdays, a staple to this day.

Since I don't know what's going on, in what way was he "forced out"? Was he banned from the convention?

well, go ask a mod or something instead of making an open post, comes off as being hostile.

My dear- we werent clear and for that I'm sorry. This has nothing to do with the forums and everything to do with the convention. His group is very active in the anime/geek community, in fact they run their own conventions as well. They have helped ACen out of a many a tight spot- and things have happened to make it seem as thoug they are not welcome. The specifics are not needed. Mods would not be able to give us the answer and a public thread is how Isamu chose to address it. I'm sure its not ment hostilely - but forcefully. By making it public it is less likely to be ignored.

I started a thread because I believed I was not the only one curious about this topic. There is nothing hostile about seeking an answer to a question.

I thought that particular panel was stopped because it was getting "too out of hand/ offensive".
I personally loved the panel, and really missed it the last year or two, but I guess for those fainter of heart I could see where that complaint came from. The hosts kinda ripped some audience members a new butthole, although personally I thought it was understood that it was all in good fun. One of my friends claimed somebody "shoved a microphone in her face and it hit her mouth" which I'm sure was unpleasant, and because she is VERY emotionally fragile she was particularly upset by it, I guess.

Not hostile but probably passive aggressive. Asking the people directly involved normally yields better results.

Not necessarily. When someone has a grievance and simply asks in public without being rude, it may guarantee transparency.

Unless somebody has information I don't, he was not banned per say. Just discouraged. I don't think the rest needs to be displayed here but yeah... He's not coming this year from what I can tell and probably won't be again. I talked to him on a semi regular basis outside of the forums

I can address a few things on this. We did not receive a panel application this year from the Your Favorite Anime Sucks group, as for the League of Legends, we decided to go with a different League panel this year and we limit the number of panels that are video game or internet media like League, and Homestuck because we are an Anime Convention, with a side of gaming. The Your Favorite Anime Sucks group did email us asking if we were interested in their panels but unfortunately it was a month after we had closed our panel application and declared ourselves as full with our largest number of panels we've ever had at 260 attendee run panels. They are more than welcome to apply for 2014 when we open applications again in September.

As for Your Favorite Anime Sucks the panel itself's content, we have decided that "Roasting" is not the type of content we want at Anime Central and discussed this with them last year before the convention which they did host a comedy panel at. We informed the new Anime Standup group who is coming of our view on roasting the audience, it is not a rule just for this group, but anyone running a comedy panel. We love comedy panels, but some attendees will not appreciate being roasted, and may go into the panel thinking they'll be fine but you never know what will strike a nerve and ruin their weekend.

This group is not banned, nor discouraged from the convention. It's unfortunate that they contacted us a month after we had closed the application and we hope they will consider applying for next year's convention when we open in September.
