  1. This whole list would be amazing. Especially Troy Baker, Bryce Papenbrook, Mathew Mercer, Yuri Lowenthal, and Tara Platt.
  2. 2014 Guest Feedback

    Well, first things first, I'd like to say that the guest variety was really awesome this year! I like both American and Japanese guests, and this year was the perfect year for both in my opinion. I got to meet Crispin Freeman, whom is one of my favorite VAs ever! On top of that, seeing Nobuo Uematsu playing in the Final Fantasy concert was a dream come true! I was also super excited to meet Travis and Laura, but seeing Crispin Freeman and Nobuo Uematsu were amazing. Thank you for bring such amazing guests this year! Next thing. I'm going to just copy and paste what I wrote on the complaint form, because it needs to be read: My friends and I were super excited to see Crispin Freeman, Laura Bailey, and Travis Willingham. I already knew we would need to get there early for the signings. I remembered the 30 minute rule from 2013, even though I went to no signings last year...but I knew that the Crispin Freeman signing was going to be pure chaos on Saturday, so one of my friends and I got there early (it was about 3:00ish) and waited towards the back out of the way. We were told to come back later and threatened to not get stuffed signed if we stuck around. Fair enough, we were pretty early and we knew the rules. However. There were two other girls waiting as well. They brought up that it was going to be chaotic. The one of the staff members says to the girls "our shift is up by then, not our problem". I really, REALLY wish I could have gotten their names. That was VERY unprofessional and rude. I understand that it has to be a really hard job, but that was really uncalled for and unprofessional. Well, anyway. My friend and I return about 15 minutes before 4:00 and see a HORDE of people around the signing area and a staff member yelling at everyone, so we look at some vendors nearby to stay out of the chaos. A few minutes before four we head over there, and as four hits, a STAMPEDE...yes, literally a stampede of people shove my friend around and almost knock her over. Okay, well, after that happened, we at least managed to get in the line. Then we find out we can have only one thing signed. I'm fine with that. HOWEVER! My friend was there with her copy of Tales of Symphonia and HER BROTHER'S copy of Symphonia. Her brother is a huge fan of Crispin Freeman and could not come to the convention. My friend already promised her brother...so of course, she got her brother's copy signed and not her own. This was not fair to her at all to suddenly have the rules changed on her AFTER SHE PROMISED SOMEONE ELSE SHE WOULD DO SOMETHING! She did not want to go back on Sunday as she knew it would be even worse (and from the sounds of it, Sunday was worse). She later said she was just happy to meet Mr. Freeman, but I know how upset she was. The rest of my friends who didn't go to the Crispin signing were wanting to go to the Travis and Laura signing on Sunday. I warned them after what happened on Saturday that it will be crazy and we need to get to the con before it opens, so we can dart back to the signings. I also warned them that if it was anything like the Crispin signings, they would only get one thing signed by each person. Of course, I ended up being right. It wasn't AS CHAOTIC as the Crispin signing...but that's probably because everyone was darting to the back instead of being smooshed together in one area and then becoming a stampede like on Saturday. Anyway. With all of that said, I'd like to bring some suggestions for next year: 1. Please...PLEASE allow people to line up earlier than 30 minutes for the guest signings. For bigger names like Crispin Freeman, it's going to be pure chaos. Somebody could have gotten hurt from that stampede on Saturday. 2. I know that they were just trying to be fair by only allowing one thing to be signed that way more people could get stuff signed, but in my friend's case, that wasn't fair to her to suddenly have the rules changed on her. I'm sure she wasn't the only person there getting stuff signed for family/friends. So, it would be nice if the rules were kept consistent. Allowing people to line up before 30 minutes would solve that problem.
  3. Guest signings complaint

    I really want someone to see this, as I was pretty disappointed with how ACen handled the Guest signings this year. I was waiting to see if I was the only person with complaints about the signing, since I wasn't, I'm chiming in now. I have gone to this con in 2011, 2013, and this year. I did not go to any signing last year as I didn't really want to see any of the guests last year other than Kalafina. In 2011 when I got some stuff signed, I don't remember the signings being nearly this bad as this year. My friends and I were super excited to see Crispin Freeman, Laura Bailey, and Travis Willingham. I already knew we would need to get there early for the signings. I remembered the 30 minute rule from 2013, even though I went to no signings last year...but I knew that the Crispin Freeman signing was going to be pure chaos on Saturday, so one of my friends and I got there early (it was about 3:00ish) and waited towards the back out of the way.

Allowing people to line up before 30 minutes would solve that problem. I'm sure there is probably more I could say, but I had to get this out here. Oh yeah, one more thing. Like Washu, my priority are the guests as well. I pretty much agree with Washu's opinion.
  4. "There were problems getting a shipping quote"

    Thanks for you response! Today I went to go and take a screenshot of the error and use that contact email, and now today I'm not getting that error and I'm able to place my order just fine. So I guess I don't need to contact you guys now? I have no idea why it happened last night. :blink:
  5. On the checkout page, it says the following at the bottom: "There were problems getting a shipping quote. Please verify the delivery and product information and try again. If this does not resolve the issue, please contact us to complete your order." I was about to enter my information to pay for my badge and then I saw this, so I stopped. I don't understand why it's saying this? I guess I'll just go to bed for the night and check for an answer on this tomorrow. Hope someone can help me and explain what this means!
  6. Guest Announcement: Crispin Freeman

    OMG!!! I literally screamed! Thank you for bringing him to ACen this year! I can't wait to see him now!!! :D
  7. yuki kajiura

    Yuki Kajiura would be AMAZING. I've admired her music ever since I first heard her music in .Hack//Sign. Her wonderful music in .Hack//Sign made me buy the anime OST, which was the first OST I ever bought. Her music is so beautiful and fits everything she works on really well. Also, she is an inspiration to me when I draw or I'm trying to be creative in general.
  8. Johnny Yong Bosch

    Johnny Yong Bosch has done so many prominent anime roles, and I know he has come to ACen to the past...but I'm sure many people wouldn't mind seeing him again! Plus, I personally have never gotten a chance to meet him! And I'd absolutely love to meet him, and maybe even get a chance to see him and his band perform! Johnny Yong Bosch has played many roles including: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion series – Lelouch Vi Britannia Bleach – Ichigo Kurosaki, Hollow Ichigo Blue Exorcist – Yukio Okumura The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya – Itsuki Koizumi Persona 4: The Animation – Yu Narukami Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – Adam Park / Black Mighty Morphin Ranger Devil May Cry 4 – Nero Dissidia: Final Fantasy/Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy – Firion Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice – Almaz von Almandine Adamant Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 – Yu Narukami Tales of the Abyss – Guy Cecil Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World – Emil Castagnier, Ratatosk, Aster
  9. Yuri Lowenthal

    I'd love to meet Yuri Lowenthal! He's done a ton of things that I'm a fan of like Yosuke from Persona 4, and Luke from Tales of the Abyss.
  10. Troy Baker

    Having Troy Baker at ACen would be amazing! He's one of my favorite voice actors! :D
  11. Troy Baker!

    I would honestly die if Troy Baker came to ACen! I'd love to see him come! Especially being the huge Trinity Blood fan that I am. :P A few roles that Troy Baker has done: Anime Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - Greed Persona 4 The Animation - Kanji Tatsumi Soul Eater - Excalibur Trinity Blood - Abel Nightroad Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike - Yuri Lowell Games Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten - Valvatorez Final Fantasy XIII/Final Fantasy XIII-2 - Snow Villiers Persona 4 - Kanji Tatsumi Persona 4: Arena - Kanji Tatsumi Resident Evil 6 - Jake Muller Tales of Vesperia - Yuri Lowell
