Technically, the end of Otakon is around three in the afternoon on Sunday, but most people know it’s as good as over after Saturday night. Sunday is really just the day people swarm artist alley and the dealer’s room in hopes of catching some last minute sales. This year really was no different than the others. I completely ignored the Sunday concerts as they are often quite boring, the remaining panels are often slightly depressing as the people who run them are completely aware that everyone is far too sad over the end of Otakon to really pay attention. There was one gem to take note of this year, and that was ADV’s seemingly last minute panel. With rumors of ADV abandoning their panel at AX, I was reluctant to waste time hoping ADV would show up, but my morbid curiosity got the better of me in the end.
Fortunately (or unfortunately if you don’t like ADV), ADV did show up only to report that rumors of their demise was premature. Quite unfortunately for them, they really didn’t have much in the way of actual proof that their demise was premature.
