So anyone from Michigan or near by states?
I would like to go to some conventions that are happening in IL or OH next year and if anyone would possibly be down to go that would be awesome. I honestly don't have any friends that are into the stuff I am and I don't like going to things alone because I'm pretty shy and have a hard time meeting people I have never talked to before. >.<

I live in Iowa and Anime Central is a blast. If you're willing to do a few extra hours of driving, we have AnimeIowa in Coralville.

Both of those are very do able.
I think MI has one but I can't think of it and I don't think it's very big at all.
I've never been to a convention of any kind and I really want to.

Jafax is *free*, and takes up a good part of Grand Vally State univ (western MI)
Shutocon is in Lansing and is getting to be large now. (central MI)
Youma con is in Detroit, and has been going for a long time. (eastern MI)

Several others around, just do some searching.
You have no excuse to not go. So just go.

Illinois here!

And I would also recommend Anime Central, it really is fun. Don't worry too much about going alone or being too shy...everyone there is SUPER nice and making friends or just finding people to hang out with is easy. Plus con-goers are always putting meetups together a few days or so before ACen so you can get together with people and just have fun (you'll want to go to acen.org to find those).

I'll be going again this year and am really looking forward to it ^^. I'm just not sure who I'll be cosplaying yet. Hmmm...

Ohayocon is a pretty big, really awesome con. Ive been to a lot of the "bigger" cons, anime boston, anime expo, comiccon, dragoncon, and theres something about ohayocon thats really "personable". theres no other con where ppl just bond and hang like this one, you see games of ninja, and tons of interaction. this is probably THE BEST convention to leave with a phonebook full of new friends. its pretty big as well, and the con space is really large and nice looking.

Illinois here as well.

And im gonna sound like a broken record, but Anime Central is fantastic. Ill be going this year again and hope to go out with a bang as it will be my last year in Illinois. The people are extremely friendly and looking for a good time as well.

The parties that go on during the events are killer too. I would strongly suggest ACEN!!

I live very close to where ACEN usually takes place in. Not sure if I should actually go this year. I've got sports and other extracurricular activities to do. If I do, it'll be my first convention (:
