I bet Llama Con is good considering who is on staff. ^_^ I haven't actually been though. I hope to go this year.

As for good cons I would recomend Anime Boston if you want a big con (about 10,000 people big). It's hard for me to say how good Anime Next, Connecticon and Otakon are these days, I only ever see the dealers room. :cry: They seem real good to me from where I am though. Except Otakon. I just don't have that much fun any more unless I am in the dealer's room and that is what I go for.

I've heard katsucon is really good but I have never been. I've always wanted to try Nan desu Con but it's way out in Denver Colorado. :(

I was there in 2004 and enjoyed it very much.

As for Otakon, I'm officially done with it for the forseeable future. I have no absolutely plans to return. There are much more enjoyable conventions for me to travel to.

I'm such a merchandise crack addict, I go all that way to get "stuff". That and Adam is really good company so it's great to spend more time with him. :D

It's also nice to feel wanted so I had a good time helping Rosemary out last year at her table (Our big vendor at Baku Con for those who don't know her by name).

Last year was my first year at Katsucon and I plan on going back next year. I have gone to Connecticon for the last two years and I really like that con. It's nice to have a big convention center and it's not too crowded.
