What Cons Are You Going To This Year?

Postby Secretary Of Pocky » Thu Apr 17, 2008 7:05 pm

Basically, the idea is to list all the cons you know you are going to from now until the end of 2008. I would like to gauge how many cons each CJAS e-boarder goes to and also, it would be interesting to have a little meet-up at the cons/ have a friendly face to talk to if you are bored or something.

My List:

AnimeNext 2008
Otakon 2008
(hopefully) MangaNext 2008

Hopefully Otakon this year.

Also, that's a lot of cons you're going to attend, Joe.

Hopefully Otakon as usual. Or, if I'm on the west coast (less likely), AX. I passed on NYCC this weekend, though NYAF may be one to keep an eye on this year.

It helps when you are ten minutes away from the convention center

Bah, I've never been to a con. They've always been at inconvenient times (like Otakon this year starts the day after my b-day... no WAY my parents will let me not be home for my b-day...)

I, too, have yet to go to an anime convention. I guess those crappy-ass Star Trek and video game conventions I went to as a kid ruined conventions for me in general. I simply can't justify to myself spending the time and money to travel just to go to a con. :|

I'll be going to Otakon this year, if only because I feel like I need to go to at least one con in my life so I can say I did.

Besides, I can't imagine how utterly awesome peoplewatching must be at these things ^_^

One reason I go is to see people I don't see very often. It's easy to justify when you think about it that way. :P

I felt like I was peoplewatching teenage emo goth-kid douchebags most of the time. Call me cynical. The con got a lot better after I stopped paying attention to them and paid attention to more interesting people.
