I been going to AX for decades but it seems AX been going down hill. Each year seems to get worse in both content and organization.

It been so bad they even tanked their own forums just so complaints weren't as obvious to the general attendees. AX will have to do something pretty amazing to get me attending again. The last few years literally burnt a decade worth of saved up good will, all thats left is cynicism.


This is also starting to be a concern for me as well and i am on the fence this year. I bought my badge at the end of last year's convention, otherwise i would probably not go. Last Year's AX was a mess, it was soo poorly organized, people were not really trained properly or knew what was going on. Very few of the AX people were helpful in anyway. It kind of felt like they asked for volunteers for the event and gave them no introduction/training.

The events were alright, compared to other years, i was not that impressed and scheduling the concert on the last night of the Convention was foolish. It should have been done in the middle of the convention.
I am really hoping they have some awesome concerts and events this year, otherwise i am not sure it will be worth me flying all the way out there and paying for the Premier badge for 2016.

The best example of bad organization has to be the whole SAO II premier thing. There were people everywhere no one had any idea where the line started. Apparently there were multiple lines. People that ended up in the wrong line ended up wasting a lot of time waiting for something they would not be able to attend. I was lucky i always buy the premier badges before they sell out, but honestly without a premier badge i am not sure it is really worth traveling to LA for it.

I don't think I might go. I wish I could but last year was exhausting. It took hours to get the badges, everyone didn't know where to go so people were all over the place, and too many people. Not that it's a bad thing since I read on the news that last year was the highest of people attending AX. However, I am not too big around that many people....

I think I might wait for next year when I hear things are going pretty well this year. But if I did go then it would be my 5th time to attend AX.

This is going to be my very first time going to a con. I've been wanting to go to AX for a very long time and now I am woo. Though with my excitement i'm also very nervous cause I have no idea what to expect or really do while there. I'm also planning on cosplaying. Though X: any do's and don'ts? Any advice would be nice >w<

I would answer this, but this is only my second convention, and it's my first time going to Anime Expo. I've been accepted as press, though, can't wait.

You could always use Uber or call a taxi if you have the money to go.

There's a lot of topics around the interwebs regarding con advice, so I'd check those out.

I also advise you sit and plan out what you want to do at the con on Day 0 or earlier. You will not be able to do everything you want, not only because things overlap, but because the lines are long and doubly so if you don't have a Premier badge.

so, im going to be down in la around that time. I've never been to a con and im debating to going to my first one solo for a number of reasons, but i digress.

Is it worth getting a premium badge for like 3 days? and if so, could you tell me your past experiences with it? Some things i would like to know are:

1. was it worth?
2. is the priority line and seating that big of a deal?
3. are the extras that come with it unique? e.g swag bags and such?
4. when do the schedules usually come out?
5. are there limited number of premium badges?


thx in advance :D
