Hello. I am an otaku living in Central New York, Syracuse area. I found that there is a severe lack of otaku meetings in Central New York. I was wondering if there were any others and, if possible, they would like to meet up for a group discussion to just meet others like us. Any takers?

I'm actually from Rochester NY, and I go to Anime Syracuse quite frequently.

I see. THAT'S why I never hear about it. Okay. Thank you very much. I'll have to keep my eyes open for the announcement then.

Mhm! :)
In terms of cons it's a bit on the small side, but for a first con it'll be a lot of fun, I still go just because so many of my friends live out there now and it's one of the few times I get to see them during a year, the other being here in Rochester (Tora Con), which is a bit larger than Syracuse, and last 2 years had vocaloid concerts which was pretty sweet. If you can make it next year to TC I recommend it =) It's at RIT

Oh yeah. I watched that concert. It was quite good too. Gumi knows how to involve the crowd at least. I did find a picture that I much appreciated. I'll share it with you. I think you'll appreciate it too.

I watched it on YouTube, anyway. I didn't have a clue there was such a thing as ToraCon until I watched the concert on YouTube. H had no idea ToraCon was in Rochester though.

It's at the convention center which is large, however, not as many people go. It's still a fun time though.

Well, in Syracuse, you have the OnCenter, the War Memorial, and the NYS Fairgrounds. Those are the three big ones. The ones that are outdoors are the Inner Harbor, the NYS Fairgrounds, and Armory Square, but those are the only ones outside that I can think of.
