Hey guys! Hopefully you’re all washing your hands and staying safe during this difficult time – which we will all get through (and I can’t stress this enough)! As we said in our previous post, we’re setting up a special unofficial ‘digital alternative’ to everyone’s convention cancellation woes due to COVID-19, and in this post is an invite link to our discord channel so you can check out the unofficial AnimeSnap Con 2020! We’ll be running this special channel for a week (or longer depending on demand), and we’re hoping this will at least take your mind off of the virus. The link’s down below!
With Coronavirus giving 90% of our social lives a ‘Thanos’ snap, it’s pretty evident that we won’t be seeing you guys – physically at conventions – for awhile. Funny thing about this whole pandemic is the fact that if you’re a content creator, blogger, or even a live-streamer, you get real creative in the middle of a crisis. That’s why for any of you guys who’s conventions got cancelled thanks to COVID-19, we’re putting together…scratch that! We’re rallying the nerd troops together for a super special digital alternative anime convention, right on our Discord channel Anime Snap! It will kick off next week during the dates of our cancelled convention, Zenkaikon.
We’re gonna need you guys’ help as well (including all of the anibloggers who follow us)! We’ve reached out to a few voice actors to see if they were interested in this little test project of ours during COVID-19’s 2-Week House-Arrest Program. We know by the numbers it looks bad, but if you think about it – it’s not as bad as it COULD be. At least the very air we breathe is NOT contaminated by Coronavirus, cuz’ that would be VERY bad!
We do have some good news; more than half of the people infected (about 145,000) are fully recovering. Remember, there is a line between cautious and crazy, you just have to remember what side of the line you’re on. Until next post, stay safe and WASH YOUR HANDS! [Also, stay nerdy! ;)]
After reviewing our poll numbers for what name we should call our Discord channel, the fans have voted on the name Anime Snap as our official Discord channel name. On there you can talk anime, manga, cosplay, conventions, or anything (as long as it’s PG). If you want to help us run it or if you wanna join the party, click on the link on our homepage. By the way, we’ve changed around our posting “A-B” schedule; with our Week-A being Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and our Week-B being Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. As always until next post, stay nerdy! 😉
