What Conventions do you hope to attend?

With this thread, Im not asking which conventions you know for sure you will be attending but what conventions you really want to go to in the near future. I know for some of us we can't predict into the future and see if we will be there because stuff comes up.

Feel free to talk about the conventions you have been to so that everyone can get an idea of what it's like and maybe they might want to try and go to. This is just our wish list of conventions :P

In the near future I hope to be able to attend:

Tsubasacon

Anime Expo

My main ones I want to go to is:

PAX and PAX East

Though I have been a anime fan for many years, in the beginning, it was all about the video games. PAX, to me, sort of symbolizes the kind of convention that I dreamed of since the beginning. You don't have to be a Penny Arcade fan to enjoy it. They have the latest and even unrealeased video games right there with areas where you can play DnD, cosplay, play video games, really just NERD OUT. The music they get for their is very good and Im hoping I can make it for PAX East and then make my way to the west coast for regular PAX. My friend CarbonIZE was able to make it to PAX 2009 and talked about how it's just an amazing experience. Him and I are going to try and make it for another PAX :D

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I really wanna go to Sakura-Con in Seattle.

I'd never heard of PAX before, but I've never been much of a gamer. It looks huge though!

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I'll probably start hitting Otacon in '11, and I'll at least pop into Ikkicon for a day next month, I might also go to this year's A-Fest and I want to check out AWA and AX some time or another.

Comiket in Japan. I'm going to the motherland of anime.

I would also like to do a pilgrimage across the world going to anime cons.

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I want to hit as many as I can.
I'm taking classes this year, hopefully my drawing classes will provide me with the experience I need to be a manga artist, and take some time to visit conventions, hopefully, see the fruits of my labor?

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I'm looking to hit up some local ones as well.

The biggest Con that I am most excited about for sure is the Toronto Con. Special Guests include Eric Vale, Kyle Hebert, Todd Haberkorn and Wendy Powell. Not to mention it's one of the best in Canada, So I'm excited at the chance to attend this year.

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

Well, wanna go to Fanime. But that's kinda far and expensive. Also anime expo. Just went to a con this last weekend (Sacanime) and plan on going to the Summer one. I wanna go to Otakon or maybe Comic con but those are far out of the question until I can start to make moneys.

Decisions, decisions......

Anime North in Toronto is always great. Might go to a few other cons this year but AN is usually the only one that's guaranteed.

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I'm going to Anime Central in a couple months, and I'd like to make Youmacon this fall, but that's a doubtful one unless I get some surprise money. Gotta start saving for Invadercon right after Acen if I want to be able to make that. ^^

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I go to too many cons...

Last year (for either ygotas or magfest)-
Animenext
Otakon
Tigercon
GameX
VGXPO
Anime USA
MAGfest

So far this year (confirmed)...
PAX East (for MAGfest)
Anime Evolution (for ygotas)

It's funny cause i go to so many cons now and do stuff there that I really can't go to cons as an attendee anymore, I would be too bored lol (plus I haven't paid to get in a con in years lol)

Re: What Conventions do you hope to attend?

I'm going to Acen in Illinois this May. If Animeland is teaming up with colorado cutthroat, I'll be volunteering for Supercon in Denver this summer and if I get this mentor job this summer in Austin, I'll go to their local con with a few friends.

Metrocon every year. Depending on my financial situation, I might go to an extra random convention.
