Favorite Anime Con Events

I wasn't sure which forum to put this thread in, but anyway, what are everyone's favorite events to attend at anime conventions?

I went to Anime Expo for the first time this past summer, and I was amazed at the variety of events and panels they had. It was much different from Anime Vegas, which was, and still is, the only other con I've been to.

Though I missed a lot of the events while I was busy wandering around and slaughtering my wallet, my favorite events were the AX Idol competition and the AMV Contest. This summer, though, I wanna be sure to also check out the Masquerade, since that's my favorite event and AV.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

I think the way I view panels are very different from the way you guys view panels. For me, we have to be to every panel that is remotely interesting and film it. We then stuff those in our Fanatic section, haha. Sometimes they're funny and sometimes they're not. I like sort of unique panels such as AnimeVegas' California Versus Canada Versus Texas, which talked about the difference in voicing in various locations.

At rare times I enjoy Gothic Lolita or cosplay panels, but they have to be well run. Anyone can explain that there's various type of Lolita, but few can actually make it interesting for those already aware of such a thing.

So it is really a hit or miss for me since when I go to a panel I'm reporting on it, trying to get a voice actor's attention, or other things. When I went to conventions for more relaxed things, I generally never went to panels. I usually volunteered, so I guess I've never gone to panels to relax! Haha! Either way, I'm a little picky.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

Down here in Australia we have a range of strange events, like "Newspaper Cosplay" and "Cardboard Box Racing".

Sadly, I usually don't frequent the "events" at conventions. Why? Because they're usually silly cosplay or AMV contests that I take no interest in (no offence to those who like to cosplay, of course, or make AMVs). Also, panels rarely interest me. As most must know by now, I take little interest in who voices who or their reputation.

I'm more of a fan of the Japanese Ball Joint Dolls that are on display.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

We only have one convention in West Virginia and that is Tsubasacon. Unfortunately for the past 3 years of knowing about it, I've been busy for one reason or another. I plan to go to it next time now that I attend college in the same city it is held in.

One of the things I read about it was their cosplay cafe where you could dress up and be served Japanese finger foods. I think that would be fun to try. When I go though, I would be all over the panels. I love hearing people talk about their job and experiences in it.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

Usually stuff you can only do at cons, so mostly panels. I also enjoy collecting business cards and playing "Name the Thing that Person is Cosplaying".

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

I like watching concerts when good or at least decent bands are playing. Also investing my money in anime collectibles is also another pass time i do at cons.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

My favorite panel was done at ACen last year and was Called Sailor Squares. It was a Sailor Moon trivia contest played to the rules of Hollywood squares complete with all the Sailor Scouts (well except the Starlights). The panel was sooo awsomely done but I guess Im kinda biased since I got to play in a round and won it :)

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

The Cosplay and AMV events are about it for me. Rest of time is spent cosplaying or buying stuff.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

My favorite things to do at anime conventions include:

- The dealer's room. I love buying all the Pokemon stuff I can get my hands on. xD
- Panels about voice acting in general
- "Q and A" panels with famous voice actors!! :D
- Autographs!!!! :D

In fact, I love going to anime conventions. Especially the big cons, which I find to be A LOT more fun. I went to New York Comic Con last year and it was amazing!! That was the most fun I've ever had at a convention!! <3

However, unfortunately, it's rare when I get to attend cons, because I usually don't have the money to travel. And that makes me sad... D:

But I like a variety of panels, some of them maybe be ERHEMAGERESTRITCEDCOUGHCOUGH!
But I also liked the "make your own plushie" panel, and I do enjoy watching Cosplay chess every now and then.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

I like the random 18+ Panels. The 'Vampires don't sparkle' one was just awesome. AMV entries, Anime unscripted, the 'DYI cosplay tips' panels and Anime Industry panels. I'll go to random panels sometimes but for the most part I just hit the dealers room and empty out my pockets there.

Re: Favorite Anime Con Events

Momocon and AWA... I missed Momocon this year, but I'm not missing AWA. I REFUSE to miss AWA
this year. I highly regret missing last years, in the way that I had someone paying for me to go, and, needless to say, it went to waste. But not this year, no sir. I'm going.

But to answer the question, Favorite events for me are the cosplay contests, and the panels. On a side note, I make a great Choji.. ;)

Cool, I'll be at AWA this year. I'll be sure to take pictures of every Choji I see so I make sure I get you!

My favorite event is the masquerade. I know that's not a rare thing, but it's the truth.

I've seen a couple of Improv masquerades, too. Basically you are given a scene prompt (and sometimes a particular prop to include) and a short amount of time to write and perform a script. Most con attendees are not good at improv comedy, but a few have been really good. I'm tempted to participate in one sometime - it looks like great fun!!
