Yes, Anime North is on the list. You owe me one, Canada.
Sakura-Con – Seattle, Washington (April 18th-20th)
Confirmed special guest: Puddi. Also, some anibloggers like Inushinde.
Seattle is Seattle, and I know Puddi’s pretty cool, so this seemed like a no-brainer.
Anime North – Toronto, Canada (May 23rd-25th)
Confirmed special guest: Quite a few of you, it seems.
I really didn’t wanna go back to this damned rainy, miserable convention but I swear to god half of the Canadian population disagreed. So fine, I’m coming. See you there.
On the Radar
Colossalcon – Sandsuky, Ohio (June 5th-8th)
Everyone in Ohio says it’s good, but since Soup skipped the state for fucking Korea, the only Ohiobro I know is Will. And Will can’t wear his scarf in the water park’s pools, so he refused to come.
Maybe I’ll just drive it up and pick some cool kids up on the way.
Anime Midwest – Rosemont, Illinois (July 4th-6th)
I figure if their press staff went out on a limb to invite me, they’ve gotta have their shit together.
Anime Weekend Atlanta – Atlanta, Georgia (September 26th-28th)
Only cuz I’ve heard Atlanta’s pretty sweet.
These cons are either soullessly big or I’ve had a shitty enough experience with them to never want to go back.
Though, I did have Anime North on this list until I got a bombardment of “please go”s from y’all, so this is negotiable. But you better have a damn good reason if you wanna convince me to spend time at a con I’ll probably hate.
- Anime Boston (March 21st-23rd)
- Anime Detour (April 4th-6th)
- Anime Central (May 16th-18th)
- Anime Expo (July 3rd-6th)
- Otakon (August 8th-10th)
- Youmacon (October 30th-November 2nd)
If there are any cons you’d recommend, do let me know. My conventures usually start from IRC convos, and fansubbers aren’t exactly known for leaving their rooms for anything more than one con a year.
Yeah, sure. I’ll hang with you for a period of time. Just please don’t be special-ed-class weird.
