My bf has been begging me to go to AX for a few years now but I just never have the money or the time off work.

One day...I'll make it.

Never went to any cons.

But personally, aside from maybe going once or twice to meet other Anime fans or if I am lucky a voice actor or two, I don't see too much of a reason to go to one other then to just get the experience of going and to meet other like minded people. Hell, if there was some discount figurines or something that would be nice, maybe as a way to find some local talent as well for people making knock off Anime merchandise,


But, I can't actually see myself going to conventions year after year.

I went to NYC Comicon by myself last year. It was nice. A great first experience.

However, I don't think I would do it again. At least not by myself.

There was lots for me to do, but it would have felt all the more exciting if I were there, laughing with some of my bros.

Also, it can be waaaaaaaaaay pricey. For example~

- Single day ticket--- $60
- Transportation --- $10
- Food/water --- $50
- Anime merch --- $230

Honestly, the majority of the merch's prices were equal, or just one dollar less then what you'd find online.

I love going to cons, but I mostly go to talk to people, sit in on amusing panels and hang out in artist alley. I get commission pieces primarily.

idk man they're fun but they're always so crowded and EXPENSIVE. There's a big one coming up in my city but I don't think it's worth going.

Unless you go with friends, patience, and a lot of money, I don't think you'd enjoy yourself

It's very expensive, honestly :/ I've been to one and I wasn't really at all entertained. Maybe if I was a cosplayer or something I would have...

Actually this kind of behavior is highly looked down on at Cons.
