I feel like St. Louis is a largely ignored part of the U.S. when it comes to "big cities" and conventions.

Is anyone from Crunchyroll planning on going?

Also, Miles and Victoria, if you're reading this, you must come.

June 5 - 7 @ Collinsville Con center

Crunchyroll was just at Anime STL this last weekend. I am not sure if they are going to come back so quickly when there will be other conventions around the country to travel to. Arch Anime and NatsuCon at the same location is starting to over-saturate the area I think with anime conventions. I enjoy going, but once a year is enough for me I think. Anything more and it will just lose its appeal as a special event to go to and have fun at.

I guess that makes sense, though I was wondering about people in the forums.

Guess I'll have to wait 'till next year to see the crew in person.

I've been thinking about hitting it up this year. It really depends on how busy work is at the time and how much money I have left from Anime Central...Are they decent cons? I have not really heard any reviews...

^^ I'm curious as well, as to whether or not (NatsuCon and ArchAnime) are any good?

I'll most likely go since it's close enough to me that I don't have to pay out extra for a hotel room. I've never been to Arch Anime, so I'll look forward to it^^

Anime STL was pretty awesome. I think the ones following it are smaller, but NatsuCon is flying a J-POP singer in and having two nights of raves.

Apparently Arch Anime is listed under Crunchyroll's convention list so I'm excited for that.

Anime STL Was pretty good. I live in the STL area, so I've gone a few times. I'm headed up to ACen as well. But Anime STL is worth while imo. Arch Anime is one I still have yet to attend. Usually finances and work schedules conflict. So it's hard to do more than 2 per year for me.

The thing is, my sister lives in Edwardsville, so lodging is free for me. That's all about to change after this summer when she moves ;(
