I was six or seven going to Otakon for the first time! I've been going every year since and it's so much fun!

I've never been to one. I may attend one in the future.

I was 15 when I went to my city's first anime con (they call it SNAFU Con). There wasn't much to do but I was still in shock that there were other people who lived here that were interested in anime. It's been slowly growing over the years so that's pretty neat to see.

My first out of state convention was Anime Expo last year. It was such a great time, I'm certain I'll be going every year now.

My first anime convention was some random day called super cosmic anime festival. It was some time in 2005 or so if i remember correctly. It was in little Tokyo. there wasn't much there but i had a lot of fun seeing all the cosplayers and visiting all the stores they had.

My first big anime convention was Anime Expo in 2006. I enjoyed is so much. Funny enough I didn't really do much but spend a lot of time in the exhibit hall. I think I went to one screening and that was about it. It wasn't until the following year that I discovered the panels and concerts that AX had to offer. AX2007 was one of my favorite years of AX, though I hear a lot of people did not like that year.

Hahaha, my first one was actually this year in May - Acen 2017. My relatively new boyfriend invited me.
I am usually a homebody and an outcast so it was really eye-opening.

I'm going to Fanime during Memorial Day weekend next week. ^^ And I'm thirteen. How old were you when you went to your first anime convention, and which one was it? Mine is in San Jose. :)
So that was nine year ago ... you turn 22 now? still Anime Fan ??

I was ... 19 ? when I went to my first one... ( it was LONG, LONG ago ... in 1.995 a preceded of one is now the biggest in Spain) now its "Salon del Manga de Barcelona" it turn into his 23th edition next October.

It was when the MANGA and Anime BOOM starting spreading in Spain, as a consequence of a regional TV Channel ( TV3 ) start airing "Bola de Drac [AKA: Dragon Ball]" from spring 1990 ... ( when I was 14, and just finishing my elementary Scholarship)

I went for all the first 18's in a row (from 1st in October 1.995, till his 17th in 2011 ... Since then I just went 2 more times. As I moved to England in 2008.
As well at some other here in England as "MCM London Expo", Hyper Japan, etc ...

Now, I still preferring to watch anime over real motion pictures/tv series. ( but it is only question of preferences, so I'm watching as well these thing)


Cheers.

My first anime convention was Connooga in Chattanooga Tennessee. It was the first medium sized Con I went to in 2015 when I was 14. The very first non anime convention I went to was called Scare-con in 2014. It was honestly terrible. It was in a small building and there was only like 20 people there and they were all in there late 40's early 50's and I was the only one cosplaying. I had a terrible cosplay also xD

Oh boy, my first con was at Animinneapolis 2012??

My friend and I were dressed up as Inuyasha and Kagome and I remember people randomly taking pictures of us (before we knew this was a daily habit of conventions).

It was super fun tho

My first convention was Another Anime Con. I went the first year it was being held (and almost every year after), I was somewhere between the ages of 16 - 18 if I remember right. I went on a Sunday as I didn't know about the convention until that weekend. I later heard Sunday's were usually considered the 'worst' day for conventions (at least from the people I had talked to how had been to other local cons at the time) as that is when things tend to be wrapping up. Still had fun though, if not more than a little overwhelmed.

Anime Expo 2004. I was about 12. That was my first time seeing cosplay and ever since then I've been hooked.
I've been going to AX every year since then. It's a major thing I look forward to every year. I love being around my geeks. <3

My first anime con was Anime Boston 2015; I was 28 then. Within the next few years my goal is to increase both the number of cons I annually attend and the distance from home I travel for them.

2009 and 18, I was new to the anime scene and my friend and I traveled from the Bay Area to Sacramento to go to SacAnime. It was really small compare to SacAnime is now. My friend and I had a good time. I still have my badge from it.
