Animesploitation Terebi Funhouse Road Show Otakalypse (miseria consociatus est miseria dimidiavit)
The name change wasn't my idea. The con organizers told me that the name "Anime That Sucks" was offensive, so I had to change the panel name. Also, since the theme this year was Hollywood movies, I had to choose a name that was a parody of a movie. It turns out that nobody else actually did that. It also turns out that there was a panel entitled "Transformers the Movie and why it will SUCK!"When I asked about this apparent discrepancy in policy, I was told that there was a difference in intent between the two.
Oh, and also: if it wasn't apparent from the previous post, the program guide and website billing it as "formerly the Panel OF DOOM" is inaccurate, which is why I didn't actually print out the posters that Danno drafted. It was actually the bad anime panel I do, NOT the Hell-style clip show. I told them this repeatedly well in advance, but I think one guy is in charge of writing up the program guide, scheduling, video programming, and a bunch of other things that are of critical importance.It's an understandable oversight on their part, since I traditionally do the bad anime panel at JACON then the clip show at AFO, and I switched them around this year.
