OB at MAGFest 2014
Everybody knows that MAGFest, which lists our own Nick the Newbie among its senior staff, is the world's best
Here's a few of our members that attended this year. It wasn't an official OB meetup, but there sure were a lot of us at the panel hosted by OBers Matt Mercer's and Zach Grafton's.
OtakuBooty members were in full force again at MAGFest this year! MAGFest, run by OB alum Nick the Newbie and his cohorts, literally rocks. Great people, great staff, great music. We'd like to extend public thanks to all of the OB members that warmed our time at MAGFest along with all of the dedicated volunteers that made this
OtakuBooty was out in full force at MAGFest 2011. Usually we're too busy drinking and partying to have a booth or a table, but thanks to Hunky Dory's idea and jizzloads of amazing volunteer members we got off of our collective asses and represented.
And yes, there was DUCT TAPE COSPLAY. You should not be satisfied with the small -- yet impossibly sexual -- selection of pictures below. You should click on the link below and look at all 45 glorious photos. That is what you need.

So I said to myself, "I'm not updating this fucking blog until that Andrew W.K. guy puts a bunch of OBers in the album art for his latest CD release."
Here's the album art, thanks to stalwart awesome guy Pope Corky XVIII.
And here's the original picture of mostly-OBers dressed as AWK at Dragon*Con 2009:
Here's the forum thread where you can find out which outrageously virile men and melted plutonium-hot womenfolk are -- damn, I couldn't even type that with a straight face, but I love you all -- in that picture.
OtakuBooty At Katsucon 2009
Once again, OtakuBooty was the coolest group at Katuscon - if you weren't hanging out with us, you might have missed the best parties and friendliest people. I had a wonderful time seeing all of you and a single weekend isn't nearly enough time to spend with you.
See all 159+ of my photos of OtakuBooty at Katsucon 2009 over at Flickr!

OtakuBooty at Katsucon 2008
As usual, the OtakuBooty gang had a great time at Katsucon again this year. Otakon is a little too big and spread out for most of us, leaving Katsucon as the main OtakuBooty con for most of our East Coast members and a good deal of the West Coast members.
You can see all 100+ of my Katsucon 2008 photos here. Also worth checking out are photosets from ErinHime, MPsy, RogueSamus, Patty Boh, and quite a few others listed on this forum thread.
Below are a few favorites of mine. First, the obligatory group shot.
All aboard the Man Train.
For fanservice's sake, here's OB's own PamelaNeko as a very kickass Yoko from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
Behold, the JUMBO SLICE. That's not a perspective trick, kids. Those slices really were that big.

Forum stalwart and poster extraordinaire Joshua "Fievel" Kaplowitz brings us his report from Anime Expo 2007's industry panel on the future of anime.
The next few years are going to be pivotal ones for the anime industry.

Read on to find out what industry figures such as Tony Oliver of Bang Zoom! and Anime TV, Peter Heumiller of Comcast Select OnDemand, Justin Sevakis of ImaginAsian TV, Leo Chu of MTV and SpikeTV, and Eric Calderon of Gonzo Entertainment think about emerging issues as digital downloads, the future of anime on cable television, joint American-Japanese productions, and everybody's favorite topic - piracy.
Where Do We Go From Here?
