    I might go looking for discounts on anime, but I hear everything is overpriced.

    I can confirm that, you're better off buying online.

    I think anime conventions are only fun for the cosplay crowd, and i'm not that hardcore of a fan.

    There's always the five-finger discount. :eek:

    Last year my friends came home with assloads of stuff, and I came back with a dvd, a poster and a comic book... wtf lol

    So at the Comic Con I tried my luck at jacking stuff... Came home with about 3 bags full of stuff, including 2 Bit Char-Gs :p

    Be careful though...

    nope, shit is expensive... you can haggle for a lower price, but thats :greddy:

    I went to the convention thinking I could find some rare/cool posters or toys, but its the same old shit you can find anywhere else.

    I like haggling, but I suck at it. Only reason why I would go is to see this

    It's confirmed. Friday I will be at the gate by 9:30am with my friends. However I will not be dressed as Naota since I'm too broke to buy stuff for the costume. One of my friends will be dressed up as Lupin though, complete with afro... haha
