Howdy yall!

My name is James, this coming ACen will be my fifth time attending ACen (yes, it took me this long to join the forums >.>).

I am from Carbondale, IL, which is at the southern most part of Illinois aka the part of Illinois nobody knows about/visits...

I'm into a large variety anime and games and play almost all genres.

It's very nice to meet you all ^_^ looking forward to meeting new peeps and partying it up this time around! =D

@YoungBirdcall

That's awesome! We have a lot of students from the Chicago area down here (I'm a student at SIU) but rarely hear of us heading up there so *Fist pump to him!*

@The Fujoshi

Yeah I've lurkered around throught the years and really didn't know where to start =S seems everyone on here already knows each other, which is awesome but my internet shyness is kinda high, if that's even possible lol plus I don't really forum much

@SirArthurKirkland

Look no further! I'm totally your friend! Boom, just like that! =P however...can't really help ya with the gas situation >.< srry

@wrexness

Haha! well it gets lonely >.< and I used to go to Harrisburg all the time but sadly alot of cool places are closed there now, the comic shop (a long time ago), the theatre, and even taco bell T_T

I'm shy irl like at Acen >_>;

I am compared to Canada from Hetalia: soft spoken, quiet, invisible. Most people do not notice me in conversations or at all ^^; When I am used to people I act like America ._. Weird contrast I know. Or I am more like Mio when I talk since it tends to get embarrassing.

The only exception was when I did Hetalia/Maito Gai. People noticed me then I was torn between being in character and freaking out.

Yeah dude I had the same dilemma. I was like: "How do I even know if the people I talk to on the forum will recognize me in person, or vice versa? And what should I do if I see someone that I know from the forums? Run up and say hello? I have no idea (I'm new to the whole "posting on internet forums" thing). SO MANY QUESTIONS

Go to meet and greet or Cookie's hot tub thing and be social. If you see a black Miku cosplayer with headphones that's me or a Junpei hat.

Going to be the matryoshka version.

:/ I did notice that last time I was down. Even as they add more places and become more of a "city" with the Super Wal-mart, Gamestop and Applebees, they are starting to lose places that I went to a lot growing up.

I'm going to be America, Lat Miku, and Switzerland. The only black version of all of these. For America I will have a sign supporting Russiamerica and unionization of world powers with an American flag.

There that's a BIG HELLO than you shouting fujoshi sine fujoshi=garbage girl or yaoi fan.

Im so tempted to... Or at least writ down all the names on a sign then strutting around the hotel until my friends flee away from me from embarrassment xDDD

Me too actually, I just do it when a convention is coming up so I can meet new people. Since this is Illinois and I live where there are barely NO anime fans or whatnot around, it gets pretty aggravating when you have no one to share your interest with besides the ppl you met at other cons...but they live far from me DDDX

there should be a meet up with everyone from the forums for ppl who want to find people xD name tags n stuff xDDDD
