Anime Expo in Los Angeles, CA.

Fanime in San Fransisco, CA.

Depends if you want west coast or east coast, because they all have downsides and upsides.

Anime Expo is the largest, but it has been soooo disorganized these passed 2 years. To the point where I gave up going to most events. Even the line to get the premier badges was almost messed up. Bigger is not always better, but I still count it as the top of the charts.

Just check it out online, there are lists of conventions and most of them are really good without having been this big theatrical event.

Best is a subjective term. It would help to know why you go to a con. Some people like music, others japanese guests, others just want to take pics of cosplayers. So, it really depends.

I've gone to many cons across the US. Each con has its own specialty, so it's hard to compare.

Fanime has not been good since 2011. I live near Fanime and I've gone to Animazement for the last two years. With exception of the musical group(though 2013 was pathetic), Animazement dominates. Better Japanese guests, less people, and a lot cheaper to stay in NC than CA. Also some really good BBQ in NC.

As for Anime Expo, I'm done with it. 85K attendees is my limit.

I live in NYC. Anyone know of any particularly good/reliable one for me?
By good/reliable I mean generally good/ reliably fun and exciting.
