To Whom It May Concern:
Sneko, America’s own cute J-Pop Idol!
Sneko is a teenage Jpop idol-singer located in NYC with a voice that far outshines her small stature. Though young and only reaching a height of 4'11", she’s best known for her powerful and mature vocals which belie her young and sweet image. She is lead singer and dancer to her own idol unit, Starberry, and has performed at various cons and Japanese culture events since her debut in her early teens!
You can find a list of all her notable events bellows, as well as links to Sneko’s youtube, facebook, and other social media!
At performances, she and her 4 backup dancers perform various popular J-Pop songs and interact with the audience by teaching them wotagei (Japanese-style cheering) in accompaniment with the choreography and songs. Sneko, though self-taught in singing, dance, and Japanese, has been described by American and Japanese fans alike, as a talented, nice, and charismatic young girl.
She has a loyal army of local and online fans, both in the US and in Japan! She regularly live streams on popular Japanese video-streaming service, Nico Nico Douga where she talks to and sings for her Japanese fans. She is known both by her stage name "Sneko" and her fan-given nickaname "Magnum-chan".
Sneko, though young, already manages two performance-based maid cafes in New York City, her own dance group, and is an active member of Oishii! Project, a net-idol group! She’s super kind and friendly to work with, and professional in all that she does! Above all, she’s passionate about what she does and puts her audience and fans’ enjoyment above all else. She will adjust her setlist according to your special needs/requests and hopes that she can have a chance to show what she can do at AnimeNext, one of her favorite anime conventions.

Greetings and Salutations,
My name is John Swasey, the most prolific male voice actor in North America according to Anime News Network. I am writing to you in the hope that if you are looking for a new and exciting guest for your awesome con… well search no further. I am a voice actor that has been around for as long as…well let’s just say Gendo Ikari was still in diapers when I did my first show. Seriously, diapers! Anyway, if you are interested in perhaps entertaining the thought of possibly considering the chance that you might in any way want to contemplate the very idea of having me as a guest, I would have to say, “let me think about it”…okay done. And the answer is a resounding HELL YEAH!
Some popular roles I have played are: Gendo in Evangelion, Hohenheim in Full Metal Alchemist, Lord Death in Soul Eater, Sir Crocodile in One Piece, and Salvador in the VG – BORDERLANDS II.
Please “Google” me for a complete resume – here is a link.
But in all seriousness, if you have not yet finalized your guest list or have a cancellation, and you are interested in having me as a guest for this year or any year, I would be honored and love to chat. I wish you all the best in your con-ness and thank you in advance for your consideration!
All the best,
John A. Swasey
a.k.a Gendo Ikari, et al.

We also host a Pokemon theme picnic open to the public at in Central Park. As you can see we love to perform and show our talent & love for japanese culture to everyone with smiles.

So..Morning Musume's Tanaka Reina will be leaving in May to start her own band LoVendor (pronounced Lavender, so I have heard.) That would be a neat musical guest, although I haven't actually heard their music.
February 20, 2013 at 1:53 am
I've missed you very much the past two years. Can I come back and play again?

My name is Ian Rubin. I am a Stand-Up and Improv comedian who has done several shows with Uncle Yo! I was wondering if there is someone I can talk to about performing as a guest at AnimeNext! I know it's such a great convention, and it would be my absolute pleasure to perform there.
I've been performing stand-up and Improv for years around the tri-state area, but I recently began performing at pop-culture conventions. I've performed at conventions such as Kotoricon and NonCon where I've done shows with Uncle Yo! The next cons I will DEFINITELY be at are SpringfestNY, Castlepoint Anime Convention, Ryu-Kon and more!
You can see some of my stand-up and my Improv panel from Kotoricon here: http://www.youtube.com/UProv.
I can either do an hour of stand-up, or an hour of Improv, or both! I can also host events (such as a masquerade, auction, video game tournament, etc.), and sit panels. Tell me what I can do for you, I'll be up for it.
I really hope we can work something out, it would be an honor to perform at AnimeNext!

Have you already set aside the Arena area for Sleeping Samurai or are you guys putting them on the back burner like usual? Kinda sucks that Sleeping Samurai always gets screwed out of the Arena for other stuff.
February 20, 2013 at 8:20 pm
I am a little confused about your prop rules. Specifically:
-----Firearms are not permitted at the convention. All gun reproductions MUST have an orange tip at the end of the muzzle. If the reproduction has a firing capacity it must be empty of all ammunition and magazines.
-----NO PROJECTILE WEAPONS OF ANY KIND will be permitted, without exception. Examples include, but are not limited to: Airsoft guns, any and all kinds, regardless of whether functional or not. A non- functional Airsoft gun with no moving parts is still an Airsoft gun; BB and other pellet guns; Crossbows, dart guns, and blowguns; Water guns and/or pistols; Stun guns and Tasers.
My cosplay prop would require an assault rifle prop and a handgun prop. Obviously they have to have the orange tip to them but I was kind of hoping to bring my airsoft guns to use as props (empty of course). Will it be a problem if I did?
February 20, 2013 at 12:23 am
I was hoping on asking some questions about the panels.
1) Is there an age limit for those hosting panels? If so, are minors allowed to host one under one of legal age?
2) is there a fee you have to pay for a panel?
February 21, 2013 at 10:35 pm
Would it be legal to hand out pamphlets if you dont have a booth?
December 30, 2012 at 12:07 am
Another possibility, although unlikely, is Dream Monring Musume or Hangry and Angry a duo composed of former Morning Musume members.
December 29, 2012 at 4:04 am
I would really like to see Morning Musume since Reina Tanaka is about to leave the group. Also it would be great to have former Morning Musume member turned model, Kusumi Koharu.

We have a silly little punk band that writes songs about video games, internet humor, and culture trends with a rocking sound. We would
love to play your con! Who do I need to contact to get the ball rolling?

For the hotel codes; if one has reserved a room before the codes were announced, would one still be able to enter them in group codes?
January 29, 2013 at 2:11 am
I was wondering how to sign up for staffing Guest Relations? Thanks!

hello I preregistered but I never received my ticket in my email.
December 11, 2012 at 11:43 am
We of South Jersey would love if you could at least look into this. You know we have the hotels and bus and jitney services. A plethora of food vendors within safe walking distance across the street. Mom and Dad could be hanging out at the casinos while the kiddies play! Please consider AC.

My name is Nicolette and I am the assistant manager for the D20 girls in New Jersey. Not sure if you have ever heard of us but we are a group of women dedicated to finding the perfect and real gamer girls. We have a magazine to show off our gorgeous girls and get some of the gaming news out with a flare. We help in various conventions and festivals across the US. As D20 girls, we aim to break down modeling stereotypes; we are not Barbie™ dolls. We are Anime, Goth, Steampunk, Boudoir, Magic, Zombies, Faeries, Furries, Vampires, and much more. The catch? Well, we look good doing it. We are nerdettes of the highest quality and love it. We believe that spokesmodels within the industry should be able to talk shop and promote fandom and work, as well as embracing beauty in all shapes and sizes.That being said, we are women united across the US through our shared love for the gaming world. Many of our members are young women with a passion for gaming, a penchant for the artistic and unusual, and brimming with energy and ideas – The D20 Girls offer them a chance to hone and focus their talents and their passion together. By participating in our event services, providing content for our publications, and playing an active role in the project each D20 Girls is building their own personal resume and skill set by embracing the things they enjoy. It’s the best of both worlds. As well as helping at the conventions, we help advertise for them. We were wondering if you needed any help with your convention this year, have room for a new panel or have advertisements done. In case you were looking for more information, you can E-mail me at Dollylovey123@aol.com or check my Profile out and my girls: http://ww4.d20girls.com/profile/DollyLovey.

it says on the pre-reg page that the group tickets must be bought by the 31st of january ("3-Day Adult [Group] (Before January 31)") however right next to that it says the sale ends the 1st so which date should I send the group money in by in order to get the 40$/person rate?

Hello, I was told by a voice actor that I would need to contact the staff of a convention if I would like them to come so where or who do I contact about that?
I'm a bit confused because I thought there would be an email address but there isn't so I'm lost....
