I've been to:
Portcon (2009)
Anime Boston, Otakon, & Another Anime Convention (2010)

Of those my best experience at the con itself was AAC, something about the social dynamic there really worked well for me. It was laid back, friendly, and there were plenty of things to do.

Simon's Rock is my Alma Mater, I had no idea it ever had an anime convention (sounds like it only happened once :( ). I really wish I had been there to see it.

Llamacon was run by dokool (the guy who did the deathnotepad thing @AAC) in 2006: http://www.animecons.com/events/info.shtml/942 - They didn't have anyone else that had that much drive to keep it going after he went back to nihongoland.

Also, glad you liked AAC :up:

AX - Fills my large con needs, and I like to support my local con
AWA - Only con like it IMO, like to hang out with a lot of editors I don't generally see, best con for atmosphere
Yaoicon - Wife loves it, I work for it
Comic-con - No Anime con will fill the needs this con does
Botcon - Only when it's in Southern California but hell it's a Transformers Convention

I haven't been to a con yet. Previously I was thinking of going to Anime Festival Orlando the last 2 years because its only a 2hr drive for me. Lack of driving skills (and Directions) prevented me one year, and the other year I completely forgot. :bzz: Maybe ill go this year (?)

There is a con (out of FL state ) I have my eyes on and will attend no matter what. :pizza:

Shouldnt that be 2005 - 2011 (2005 being my first year running the contest and I remember accidentally knocking your entry (Classical Flight) out of sync


As for me, all I have been able to afford to attend is Sakura-Con and Ive done that since it started

Sakuracon is the only one i go to at the moment, and have three years previously.

i've contemplated Emerald City Comicon though...

Haven't been to a con yet but I'm going to go to Zenkaikon on March 19.

I'm also thinking of going to Jaycon but I don't know if I can make that one. :( Oh well.

I've gone to Sakura-Con with my four friends. This year'll be our second year attending the con! 8-)

I personally hope to go to Anime Expo at some point, and maybe Anime Evolution in Vancouver, BC. But, from our first year.. Sakura-con daisuke!

San Diego Comic Con just needs a video contest (not just amv).

But their massive amount of sponsors being in the entertainment industry is preventing them from doing so.

AnimeNEXT (Secaucus, NJ/Somerset, NJ): 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010
Otakon (Baltimore, MD): 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009, 2010
Anime Weekend Atlanta (Atlanta, GA): 2009, 2010

We're planning to continue attending all three of these into the foreseeable future (exception: probably missing AWA in 2012). The next one we add will probably be either AnimeUSA (Arlington, VA) or Anime Central (Rosemont, IL). However, Anime Boston and Tekkoshocon (Pittsburgh, PA) are also within the realm of possibility.

Okay, so I was wrong. It turns out that the next one we're adding is Animazement (Raleigh, NC), this Memorial Day weekend.

Mostly because of this guy.
