 :-\ Odd things to have in one topic, yes...but I was wondering...does anyone know if there will be Akatsuki coats as well as the yaoi/yuri paddles sold this year like there was last?

Youve never been to Sakuracon. If SC could, they would ban anime.

Well, generally you don't smack people with all your strength with pocky or "kawaii". XD In fact, a friend of mine broke a paddle or two last con on someone's backside... So it's understandable that they would consider banning them, being so potentially violent (even if it's wanted violence XD).

 "anime convention" is right.

As much as I detest SC's  ridiculous policies, I dont fault them entirely for getting rid of the paddles.

People were getting a little too violent, and honestly annoying with them. They should have known that SC staff are constently lurking in the shadows, just waiting for someone to give them an excuse to deem something they dont like as " non family friendly' so they can ban it.

I belive they are,
 (***waits for magical yojimbo leader kylite to post and make offical ruling***)
I mean you can purchase them for sale but you have to take them up to your room or out side of the con space cuz sometimes peeps are stupid and the last thing we need for k-con is the the media getting pics of some poor otaku with a broken ass.

 do a search for yaoi paddles there have been multi threads on the subject
