I missed Anime Weekend Atlanta for the past two years (a real shame since I live in Atlanta) but yesterday I made my reservation for the full 3 days and next week a friend and I are booking a hotel room at the convention center.  It's a loooooooooong ways off (September) but hey, it's cheaper if you get a head start plus I feel like now it's set in stone and there's nothing that could make me pause like prior years.
 
For all my fellow congoers out there, which ones are you going to this year?

Fanime, Sakura con, and either Anime Expo or Am2 (since they are on the same date).
 
I missed Anime LA since I went to CES so sad about that.

@SpikeValantine: That's a lot.  Off-topic: is CES open to the public?

Probably just Anime North for me.

FanimeCon 2011 in San Jose, California (the weekend of Memorial Day in May)...and if my budget allows, perhaps Anime Expo in Los Angeles in the summer.

 One of the three VOCALOID groups being interviewed at FanimeCon 2010.

@ShadowKnight508:  I immediately saw that and thought, "Ughh, why are we always guaranteed to see a few dudes cross dressing at every con?!?!?" then I looked closer and said, "oh wait" and then I looked again and settled on being confused.

Sick I might be going to more but so far that's all I have planned at the moment, and no CES is only for industry people, big companies who are looking to carry new tech or items, and Press.
 
And as for the picture, its not as bad as all the actual guys who try to dress like female vocaloids, or other female parts can be very disturbing......I'm doing AM2 since its a free con so save me money between Fanime, E3 and Comic Con

are there any cons in toronto?

4 months past due but using http://www.animecons.com/events/ is a good place for everyone to see what cons are nearby them.
 
I've decided to attend AM2 this year to see Scandal live as well as one of the art directors for studio Ghibli. I will be missing the Hatsune Miku concert which isnt too big of a loss for me, but hey my gf made the final decision since one of the people who worked on Sailor Moon will be there.

Still throwing around a few I might attend, though they are some of the smaller ones i enjoy them either way. 
@sickVisionz: This should be pinned for this forum, nice to see when you first come in.

Ah... I love the fact that there are 3 cons per year where I live. I went to Tsukino-Con, hoping to go to Cos&Effect, and I missed Sakura-Con

I've only ever been to one convention and I'll be going to it next week.

GenCon 2011. I probably won't be in a costume since I didn't get it completed, but, hey, convention time! Yay!

@sickVisionz: I actually do staff work at AWA so you'll see me there...if you can find me. Then again, Dealers Room staff is always understaffed so I'll be there all con.

J-Culture con (September)

London Expo (October)

Went to Otakon (or at least part of it). That'll probably be it for me unless I get a bunch of money soon.

Anime Weekend Atlanta is only a few days away. I can't wait. This will be my first time booking a hotel room for the event and going for all 3 days.
