So yeah just wondering because I've already bought tickets for the weekend and I wan't to see how many people are as excited as I am for it.

I even went and bought a stack of manga because I'm so impatient, I'm also planning to go to MCM comiccon Scotland in Glasgow and the one in Birmingham but gotta wait till I get paid again for those tickets.

I would, I live in Derby which is close enough to Manchester. And if I can be free during that time maybe? But I don't think any of my friends are planning on going, if it does come up though hopefully I can plan some time off for it!

I'm not too far away in Wrexham either. I've made sure I'll be off for the comiccons by putting my holidays in at work that I need up till January 2018 ha, as for friends well sadly I'm rolling solo none of my friends are anime nuts like me and have no interest in going

but its too good of an event to miss just because I'm a lonely soul ha

Yeah I tend to save up my holiday time a lot, and I end up spending it all at the end of the year or during events which I plan with friends. Though I don't have any problem going to Manchester alone, saying I can drive there no problem (had to on two occasions previously to send and pick up a friend from Manchester Airport) but having to go their solo would probably ruin it for me saying if I did manage to get into trouble during it, I wouldn't have anyone to protect me or something. I do sometimes solo the cinema on occasion but that is usually during periods when its so few people in it anyway I don't mind it, being in a crowd alone maybe a lil too much.

EDIT: Wrexham is in Wales right? You maybe a lil more closer then me Been to Cardiff for 1 week myself once.

I've worked it so I've booked all the events I want for the rest of the year but left myself 10 days to use early next year (my holidays renew in April and don't carry over) or if there's something I want to do with family or friends between those events.

I'm not very keen on large crowds either get a bit of anxiety with it all but I'm quite good at just zoning out and focusing on all the cool stuff I'm going to buy/bankrupt myself with
