    i have been to 2, shiokazecon 06', and kamikaze kon 05', They were both at the hyatt hotel in houston. They were kinda fun, but i dont ever plan to go to another one. Makes me feel to otaku, and all the cross dressing cosplay is kinda odd.

    I wouldn't consider the one I went to very well planned. It was a couple of months ago at JTAF (Japan Town Anime Festival) and I only went b/c Mari Iijima was there.

    Thank God I didn't pay for admission b/c I don't think I'd go to another.

    I enjoy people watching occasionally and anime conventions are like the fucking people watchers' mecca. Soooo many freaks to see, it's like a human zoo.

    I'm totally going to AX in July. Hopefully I'll get a seat to check out the AMV exhibition thingy too.

    They smell funny.

    Sometimes one is worth going to, the pillows played at the one in my area a while ago, it was freakin sweet. But that con is usually pretty decent.

    I wanna see the pillows, I miss them every time they're in town (usually only sxsw). Ive been to ushi con here in austin once, nothing great, but it was still kinda fun. Might go to this next one.

    i was thinking about going to the one in baltimore, but decided to screw it because i didn't want to pay the hefty admission fee and i forgot about it. one night, i was downtown on my way to the bar and was reminded of it when i saw all these cosplayers crossing the street. glad i was about to get drunk with my friends instead of associating with them. if my friends saw me on the way there with them :ugh:
