That sounds awesome.  I want to go even more now.  (Never been, but they do have an impressive guest list.  Porno Graffiti this year?!?!)

Corporate doesn't necessarily equal corrupt.

Injecting some corporate sensibility into Fanime would do it good, in my opinion.
Well, it's not my place to say "OMG NO!" Just that from my own experience (AX1999-2006, and then one-day shopping trips in 2007 and 2008) that the general atmosphere of the convention has changed in a way that was reducing my personal enjoyment at the event. Partly a lack of guests I had any interest in, partly the overall quality of the panels, partly the venue change, and partly the dealer's hall being reduced to only the big vendors who could afford space in there leaving a wide assortment of smaller niche dealers priced out and unable to get in. Really does come down to what you're looking for in a con, I suppose. I like Fanime's hefty bent toward fan panels rather than corporate ones, for instance, which is one of the reasons Fanime has replaced AX as my Yearly Big Con Trip convention.

Yeah, it really depends on what your interests are and how you feel about them.

I feel the exact opposite way as in I wasn't the least interested in any of the panels this year at Fanime which is not a negative thing at all since I love just relaxing at Fanime.

However, where are all the news announcements and Industry booths and panels? At Anime Expo.

That's what the Internet is for! ;)

I kid, really. :P It really does come down to what you want from a con. For the industry end of it, AX has definitely got Fanime beat. But I think more on the social/fan end of it, Fanime comes out ahead. Plus, Fanime has the better venue, IMO. Do NOT like the LA Convention Center (or, honestly, the SoCal weather in July versus the San Jose weather in May!)

However, where are all the news announcements....
I may be amiss... but aren't announcements still a bit early? I mean, last year i recall the only real announcement being contest winners for a certain trivia/findthatthing contest.... I don't recall anything else other than that- but if I am wrong, please feel free to ask about whatever it is you're asking about- since I don't recall what it is you're asking for... Personally, I would likle to get daily updates pertaining to fanimecon, but obviously that's out of the queestion- so please tell me what it is you're looking forward to...

As far as PCD is concerned... I'm findng myself more dedicated toward findng out which games are popular...  since cosmicbreak had a booth again this year and aeriagames is still fishing out new stuff... I'm tryuing to keep up to date with them...

Well, I was talking about news in the industry. Good Smile and Production IG have a gigantic presence this year at Expo so it's gonna be exciting to see what comes out.

As for venue, I agree that Fanime is in one of the best locations; I love that it's in Silicon Valley and all the hotels are so close to each other. In fact, when I first attended Expo a few years ago, I was shocked that the hotels were so far apart from each other compared to Fanime.

Although, one good thing about being at the LACC is that it's next to the Staples and Nokia.
The TVXQ concert just happens to be taking place on the 2nd day of Expo this year so I know many fans are ecstatic about the coincidence.
On the other hand, people absolutely hated the coincidence that was the X-Games last year lol.

(Forced to back on strict topic)
I'm watching more anime than I did before... there's someone I want to introduce to anime- but it's very unlikely she'll be able t get into it ust yet.... maybe in a year or two?

No PCD for me this year surprisingly. I think I went into Fanime really stressed and tired so once it was over, I was relieved. I had fun, believe me, I did but having to deal with certain things while at Fanime made me feel as if I was working, babysitting and many other things.

I guess the only pcd I'll get is from not going to Otakon, I just saw the guest line up, I'm going to miss out Yoko Kano, and T.M. Revolution. (very sad panda indeed.)

Other than that I'll see what all the fuss Japan Expo is all about.


Here you go again, implying shit again. ive been to Anime Expo before and fuck that place.
Awww poor baby....I miss your old avatar ;)
