Animu-conventions: Yasumicon sucked.

July 12th, 2009 by DanielRGT

Last year (being the wonderful and wild year of 2008, though if you were to ask me why it was wonderful or wild I would probably shrug and call you gay) I went and helped out at an anime convention down here in Miami called Yasumicon. I was doing it because one of my good friends, nothingxs, was running the game room. They were going to have fighting games there (Capcom vs SNK 2, Third Strike, Guilty Gear, etc) and I was ready and willing to help as well as play some games. So I go in a car with me, nothingxs, and our friend Chris and we get the game room set up (albeit like an hour late to no fault of our own, the people supplying us with the other TVs that we hadn’t brought and the other consoles were late. We later found out that this was sort of not their fault except for the part where it completely was, even if they had difficulties with getting a van).

So the game room finally opens and things are going normal as game rooms go; that is to say that everything that usually happens in game rooms happened in this one. At the beginning of the game room’s opening, the person running the game room (as I said, nothingxs) almost got into a fight with a very strong asian guy named Jae, grimey anime convention kids stole stuff, angryman threw a pokeball at my head when I beat him in CvS2, all normal game room stuff.

So the year ends with a variety of equipment being stolen (not like the majority of equipment, but enough that it matters), and our overall feeling of the whole event was, “Goddamn, was all that work worth it? Anime kids are grimy.” Overall consensus: That convention sucked cocks.

So yesterday, after getting back from my vacation in Bonita Springs, my friend Chris picks me up to hang out at THIS year’s Yasumicon. We get there, enter the “game room” (though apparently it’s not the RIGHT game room, the one I was looking for was the one upstairs) and I’m standing around with a Street Fighter IV Fightstick while a ton of smelly kids are playing Yu-Gi-Oh. The concept of standing around with a bunch of fucks who play Yu-Gi-Oh and “not fitting in” is an absolutely retarded one, but that’s what was essentially going on.

Luckily, I run into my friend Rachel and she takes me to the upstairs game room. As soon as I get there, I immediately realize it’s no better than the one downstairs. The difference is that this room is on the 2nd floor, has a bunch of TVs, and a bunch of scrubs playing fighting games. So I go back down accompanied by nothingxs (the person who ran the game room last year, but they decided that it was his fault that all the shit got stolen and the game room started late and whatever, but hey they know everything right cause they were present running the game room right? Right?) and his girlfriend, the previously mentioned Rachel.

Immediately, we notice how lame the convention is. I mean, it’s beyond lame; it’s reached a point of just utter shit that no gathering should ever reach. When you have a so-called convention, and it consists of a bunch of smelly costume kids standing around going “Uguu~” and nothing else, who gives a fuck. I could be at HOME in a costume going “Uguu~”, I don’t have to go to FIU to do that.

We go back into smelly card players room, except by now the smell has multiplied by at least twenty and is reaching Gas Chamber status. We were trying to get Chris to go out with us to eat cause we were hungry, but as we were waiting we decided to play some Rock Band. This was the only memorable thing that happened at that convention, and it was pretty fun. Playing with people who play because they want to have fun, that’s what Rock Band is about.

Anyways, we leave and immediately (without saying anything) all mutually understand that the convention was fucking lame and we easily could have been that bored at home with the only difference being that I can make a tasty fucking sammich at my house and I can’t at Yasumicon. Not without the sammich being brought into some dumb fucking roleplay which, unfortunately, happens to me more often than I would like to admit.
