Agreed and there were quite a few times it was a problem for me as well, especially on the corner of the hilton by the crosswalk.

Hey, I'm a smoker and know for a fact that most of us are some bloody polite people. We usually ask if someone minds if we smoke there. If they do mind I go somewhere else. We go to con todo the things we enjoy, and I enjoy smoking. So thusly in areas where smoking is allowed, I'm gonna smoke. If you are seriously offended by that then you should politely ask the person to step over somewhere else to smoke. You can have an opinion without being offensive.

That's another thing that annoys me. Peoe that think their opinion is the mist beautiful thing in the world. So they procee to berate me for my opinion. Which isn't right. I hope my panel at con may cut down on some of this stuff.

Oh my gosh, that bugged me so much. I saw the designated areas for people to smoke and could easily avoid them (They're easy to get to and easy to avoid, as they should be), but I kept seeing people that were leaning on pillars that were right outside the door. I have asthma, so this really, REALLY made me unhappy. I ended up not going outside much because I'd tried to cough up my lung...

Iruka, I saw you smoking once, and you were fine *nods* Though I find it funny when I see certain characters smoking. Lizzie from Black Butler? That was PRICELESS xDDD

I know there were quite a few smokers that were polite, but like I was pointing out, there were some smokers that were hanging out in the most populated areas of the con like that corner. There is always somebody who ruins it for everybody else remember, and this isn't a discussion on whether it is right/wrong to smoke.

For me it isn't a matter of opinion. If I breath someone's smoke even third hand smoke (smoke on their clothes, furniture, etc) I tend to get sick for days. I wasn't around it enough at the con to be too affected but it was still unpleasant with that smell (body odor is more pleasant to me and yes, I know that is a matter of opinion). I'm sure you would understand not wanting to feel like you have the flu every few days.

^im sorry if you took what i said offensivly. i should have stated that i ment in or near con space (i.e. 9 feet with in a door to a business i beleve its law.... or i read that somewhere.... ) realy for me its when i step out a door and basicly get hit in the face from someone smokeing right there.
"25 feet (7.6 m) of doors, windows, or ventilation intakes" in Washington state. "10 feet (3.0 m) of the entrances, exits, or windows of such places." in Oregon state.

Personally I didn't see any designated smoking places, but I wasn't looking for them.

There was an Asuma Sensei that was actually smoking and while he looked cool, especially for pictures, it was almost painful being subjected to it. (still looking for that picture someone took of him and my friend)

Oh, another thing that bugs me at anime conventions is how during the cosplay events characters will use music and have the "needle scratching across the record" sound effect to switch between songs. I didn't go to any of these events for kumoricon so I didn't experience any (except maybe one while I was walking by the main hall), but I have seen plenty of youtube videos where people use that technique.

Something I just remembered that annoyed me very much at con this year: When you've done your time, worked your butt off volunteering, gotten your priority seating ticket or volunteer ticket, earned your right to sit in the priority seating row, been shown to your seats even....and then someone comes up (especially someone you know) and questions, to your face, your right to be sitting there, demands to see your tickets, and then takes your volunteer ticket and goes to demand a second opinion from another staff member before believing that you are allowed to sit there.

Especially when it happens TWICE. On the same day.

That sounds like an uninformed Yojimbo on proper procedures.  Hopefully that'll be taken care of this year.

"The Game" and "Marco - Polo".  One year I was on the second floor mezzanine at the Hilton and the person next to me, quite literally yelled in my ear at the top of their lungs POLO!

It may not be an annoying thing, but something that does peeve me no end.  People NOT ATTENDING GOH PANELS.  The one thing that , for me at least, defines a convention, is being able to meet celebrities that I couldn't meet at any other time.  So, I go into the panel for Cynthia Martinez (English voice of Lina Inverse from the Slayers movies and Sora Naegino from Kaliedo Star among others), and there are maybe 20 people in a room large enough to hold 200.  They didn't even fill the first two rows.  I can hear tons of people in the area outside the doors making noise, yelling, screaming, I look outside the door and 90 people are just loitering around talking to one another.  WTF!  How much did we pay this person to fly out here, provide them an escort, pay for their room, and 20 people show up to see them out of over 1000, that is just wrong.  I went to her autograph session later in the day, 150 people easy.

I don't know, maybe I am just showing my age, but people who come to the con and spend the entire day in the gaming room hogging a game that they own at home, or playing an RPG. You payed admission so you could do this?

I feel terribly uncomfortable when a really young female asks if she can hug me.  I never know what to do with my hands.  I usually try to hold the small of the back in a gentle squeeze, but my arms are long enough to grab my own elbows with each hand and still have this "little kid" not feel any pressure.  When you consider that I am probably as old as, or older, than their parents, you wonder if the same kid would ever even THINK about hugging their dad that way.  I doubt it.

My daughter was in a mascot costume (Silver the Hedgehog) and had very limited visibility.  She was mass glomped to the point of almost falling down, and then actually picked up off the ground.  It scared the (bleep) out of her, she couldn't even see who was holding her.  My wife was her handler, and they actually pushed her out of the way.  Now THAT is rude.

That's crap.  I hate it when my girlfriend does that, and she does it frequently.

I agree.  Those panels are one of the main reasons for the cons, and these people are coming out hear for smaller and smaller groups, especially those that get their fame from somewhat older shows.  I really wanted to go to her panels, but had to work. :'( I've heard that she wanted to come back some time, and I hope that's true, because I'd like to meet her.

I don't know, maybe I am just showing my age, but people who come to the con and spend the entire day in the gaming room hogging a game that they own at home, or playing an RPG. You payed admission so you could do this?

I've never really thought about it, but now that you mention it, yeah, that is somewhat illogical.

Not only is that rude, but it's immoral.  It's not their child, and doing things like that to her WITHOUT a parent's approval is borderline criminal!  Your wife should have reported it to a Yojimbo.  That's not cool!

i finally realized something... there was this girl who kept laughing (mockingly) at me whenever she sees me, so i was really curious why she was laughing (of course i was being friendly) so i asked her why, so after around 10-20 minutes of bugging her why, she told me in a serious face that my black rock star was either too big or in the wrong area-- i think that was 1 of 2 people that was rude to me... the other one was a panel person in the karaoke, but i could prolly understand  coz he's a panel person, but he was just plainly mock-joke my way of dancing abracadabra-- which wasnt really that bad, but i got a little ashamed of it-- XDDD i was probably too tolerant of the people around me.

The thing that annoyed me the most is when cosplayers think they are the BEST cosplayer within the convention. Seriously? My brother told me he overheard a girl bragging to this guy, who was about to take her photo, about how she's the only one perfect for that specific character and that no one can pull it off but her. Come on people...There's no competition here (unless you entered the cosplay costume contest). You might as well just have fun, make new friends, and stop stressing about how you need to be the perfect-looking cosplayer; in addition, keep your words to yourself and just go rant at home, not in public.

Another annoying thing at anime conventions: People who think they can deliberately slam into you and then yell at you for "taking up the entire sidewalk" when you're really not, just because you happen to be the only person in your cosplay group that looks like an actual girl (and not boys or boys in drag. my poor little sister).

It wasn't a cosplayer that did it, but the also did that to another member of our group when she changed out of her male costume and into a more feminine one later that day. Most non-cosplayers that you encounter are at least polite (when asking why you are dressed up), but some of them are really mean! D:

I have no clue as to the van that you're speaking of, but it makes me wonder if it's the guy known in the Random Panel as "Creepy Van Guy."

I'm so annoyed by all the haughty cosplayers.. Seriously grow up. I'm overweight but I put EFFORT into my cosplays and I believe they look good, of course they better since I pay a seamstress to do my outfits. It may not be my personal efforts but I work to pay for my outfits I want. A lot of the cosplayers from an anime I also cosplayed from were snobs.. Not all but some were. Just because you're outfit and body type are great doesn't give you the right to be a jerk.

Also another thing that annoys me are the immature people, most of them are underage. I want to have fun at an anime convention, not be bombarded with reckless running into people, yelling, glomping without asking, etc. Nothing irks me more then a person who forgets there manners just because it's an anime convention. Sorry but anime conventions are still in a public place.

My friend gave friendly attention to a girl's shoe, she was on the floor waiting for me, because she thought the girl didn't notice it was slightly coming apart and just wanted to let her know. She thanks her and leaves. 20 minutes later her underage? friends came storming over and blew up in my friend's face saying how rude and stupid she was, blah blah blah. GROW UP. If SHE had a problem then SHE should have came over instead of hiding behing her rude friends. People... Manners... Apparently being nice is not wanted..

Glomping is a cross between tackling and hugging. It's generally dangerous, both to the person and their costume (if wearing one) ^^; If i also recall right, one of the con rules is to ask people before glomping them.

An annoying thing, is when a person who talks very loudly and they won't stop following you around, despite all the subtle hints you drop.

I find people annoying no matter what personally i don't like being around alot of people but con I do enjoy becuse of the new people i meet and It helps me get over my small phobia i have... but what really is annoying to be is when complete strangers come up to you and the group lets say your cosplaying naruto and more naruto people come to you and those people are talking about you and saying rude and hurt full things and all you can do it sit there and state.." WOW really i m right here " and it gets annyoing when those friends of yours agree with them.

That is what i find annoying at con T_T really when people talk bad about you and your right there...

This year the thing with the chair was really annoying. I agree that it was funny at first, but people took it way too far. I was sitting in front of a couple of people who were yelling out things like they were going to kill anyone who sat in the chair. THAT was incredibly rude and inappropriate.

Usually, the only issue I personally see at con is hall clogging. People stop to talk and completely block the path for others. I am more leiniante when it comes to pictures just because I know how hard it sometimes is to get to an area where a picture is even possible, and someone not wanting to miss getting a picture of someone they don't know if they will see again.

Usually, the only issue I personally see at con is hall clogging. People stop to talk and completely block the path for others. I am more leiniante when it comes to pictures just because I know how hard it sometimes is to get to an area where a picture is even possible, and someone not wanting to miss getting a picture of someone they don't know if they will see again.

this right here.

^ During my one year as a member of Yojimbo, I had to ask people to clear the hallways a few times. It was both fun and annoying. It kind of amuses me that so many people forget to keep a clear path at cons, as well ad annoying.

Honestly, the "I Lost the Game" thing is something I'm not too bothered by, because I only hear it at anime conventions, or among 2 of my friends I rarely hear it from. But it has gotten a BIT old

With the voice acting question, I have heard the same answer once before, and I like going to VA panels because I get inspired myself to Voice Act. But I'd HATE having to hear the SAME 20 minute answer to the SAME question over AND over AND over again.

I absolutely HATE all the cosplays being from the same series or the exact same thing. It's better to have more of a variety instead of just 1/2 of the con being Naruto, Bleach, and Kingdom Hearts cosplays.

I've been to autograph lines before, and I've only been in two EXTREMELY long ones (only one was which I couldn't get an autograph cause there's too many dang fangirls who take up 10 minutes with the guest >_>"" ) So I can feel from super long autograph lines, but I just get there super early to hopefully get my autograph, picture, maybe a small question or two, then GO. My anime convention time is LIMITED.

Personally, I LOVE The Chair, although I only participated with it for one Kumoricon. I'd love to have The Chair come back, but it is quite annoying. One of my best friends at her first anime convention got OBSESSED with The Chair ^_^'
Good News and Bad News.
Bad news is I can't go to Kumoricon the whole weekend because of costs and drivers ed.

GOOD NEWS is that if I can raise enough money I can go for Saturday all day as Espurr (Pokemon X/Y)
Hope to see you all then! <3

Oh God, defiantly the whole 'game' thing. Everytime anyone tries to tell me 'I lost the game' a little part of me dies inside, sure, I used to do it back in '09, but when I see people doing it nowadays I just kinda pause, look at them, and say nothing. I'm not the type of person who likes to be rude, but it's ridiculous how often it happens at conventions, or worse, OUT OF CONVENTIONS.

Also, that whole chair thing, it was funny at first, then it got out of hand and all and all it was rude to the performers who really went up there and tried. Then, the rest of the convention I only heard about that, it was a joke that got old for me really fast. Again, it was rude to the performers. And the way people felt the need to OVERREACT to something that was funny really ruined the whole entire joke for me. It was annoying after about an hour of hearing about it, actually, annoying after the whole room started screaming, I don't mind screaming at conventions, but maybe they should be doing it for the people who worked their butt off practicing and going up there to perform?

UGH, did I mention it was the rudest thing ever?

^ lol  I've done that quite a few times!  At this year's Sakura-con, I would wear my hiking boots from time while cosplaying Sailor Mantune.  They were life savers.

The Most Annoying thing ever.


When people Pull on your tail. (If you're a character with one)
I've gone to a lot of event type things where I was dressed as Pikachu and I seriously wanted to Slap everyone that pulled on my tail.
It even came out sometimes! T.T

Annoying thing is when people assume you know what anime they are talking about. I don't know how many people assumed that I knew Black Butler, but it really Grinds my Gears.

"the game" is sooo annoying!

Any time I heard it I responded as loudly as possible "you have won the game, you are free!"

The problem is though, this is getting just as cliche and over used as the game is :(
