Anime conventions show anime has gotten 10 times more popular? By the way does anyone go to anime conventions?

I used to go to the local convention, but then I took a recession to the wallet.

I went to AX last year and this year and this year was so crowded. Video rooms were unusually full almost all of the time. The statistics did say that there were 61k unique people compared to 49k unique last year.

I've been going to cons since 2008. I first went to a small con, but stopped going after 2010.

I first went to Anime Expo since 2008 (except for 2011).

In 2011 and 2012, I went to AM2. I enjoyed this con and I'm sad that its cancelled.

I also count Comic Con. Comic Con has anime/manga stuff, but it gets overshadowed by the celebrity glitz.

I first went to Comic Con in 2011 ( man buying those badges are a pain ) and this year it was so crazy. The line for Hall H is insane. While waiting in line for the Korra Panel, I saw the Hall H line go past the Assassins Creed Boat (it was behind the convention center) I didn't go into Hall H this year (I went last year for the Django Unchained panel , my younger sister saved a spot in line). I could go on about the crowds, but I was happy I was able to get into the panels I want. Most of the panels I went to are anime/manga related, so the lines for those panels are nonexistent. I was surprised to see a decent amount of anime cosplayers there and how some people recognized my cosplay (I was Izaya).

Whoa, that is huge jump for the AX attendance numbers.

My mom thinks one of the reasons for the dramatic increase of attendance for anime cons was because so many people couldn't get into Comic Con.
