1) depends on what you go for. If it's just to take pics of people in cosplay, no. If it's to go to the main events, yes.

2). Yes, main events and most panels have super long lines. Remember that this is a con with 80K people. The line for the K Missing Kings premier last year was about four hours long. You waited about half an hour if went as a Premier badge. You will spend all day waiti in lines if you don't have a premier badge for most panels.

3) AX does not have a swag bag any more. It just contains flyers. Gone are the days where you'd get DVDs, shirts and trading card theme decks.

4). Usually a couple days before the con.

5) Yes. I think it's around 800 but it may be closer to 1K. Or more. AX never tells you the exact number.

This will be my first year at AX. If it's not fabulous I'll try to keep my disappointment down and enjoy LA instead.

Where's the "I want to go but can't" option?

I've been wanting to go to AX for quite a while now, but it's just too expensive and far for a solo con goer. I don't have anyone to go with me to help with the costs.

I'm happy to say I'm going this year, I missed last year but went the two years prior to that. Going to buy lots of anime stuff and check out all the cool cosplay and hopefully hit up a panel which I still haven't done lol!<3 Can't wait!

Me and my brother can not go anymore and we pushed it back a year too.

If anyone needs up to two Premier Fan Badges please ask away. We got them for $190 last year and is willing to give it for that much.
I live in the NYC area and it would be great if anyone here is looking for it. If not i can still mail it. I'm also willing to do extra and transfer ownership to the person, etc..


The badges need a new loving owner that can take them to LA T-T.

Last year there was a computer mess at the wednesday badge pickup that the thursday went faster.

You most likely not make it if you have a regular ticket . You need to be at the convention center at least at 10 am to be on the safe side. The prereg line is still pretty long .

As for me,

Hope I dont feel I made a mistake in paying $$$ this year...

Well I am not excited that there are no other seiyuu aside from the 2 young female seiyuu. Where are the guys seiyuu!!?? doko !!!

I am not planning on buying figures or posters and such anymore , no more room in my display room.

Maybe I will try to relax a little this year.

Have you checked to see if they are transferable? They match ID with the registered name on the badge.

I called and they said I could. Some guy contacted me so I'm sending it his way. Hopefully everything goes smoothly.
Edit: I bought my ticket in 2013. The policy was different back then so I think the new policies don't apply

Am super excited about going. It will be my first con experience. Am trying to prepare as much possible, any advice from veterans out there?

I live 40 mins away from the convention center so am just planing on driving back every night. Am going to bring tons of bottle waters and spare phone batterys (android ). The schedule is up here
http://animeexpo2015.sched.org/mobile/#page:page-schedule just trying to plan it out from there.

I pre registered online but what time on day 0 should I pick up my badge? What is the average wait time for panels? Am a premium+ member what special benefits do you get at con? For anyone kind enough to answer these questions, thanks the world.

If you're interested in music, give this a look:

Right now Anamanaguchi is confirmed, but they're announcing a second artist next month. Premium+ members are eligible for free tickets to the loge section or discounts on others. The actual post has more details.
