you shouldn't go just for the sake of going. it'll suck because you don't have an actual objective. you're not going to have fun because you'll be in a bunch of lines and won't have a payoff at the end of it. also sounds like you have no friends going. AX is a bad con for casuals in general.

if you get sick, that'll be even worse, because you didn't even get to see a guest you really wanted to see or some shit

Not really. The big issue is that Comitket is a Japanese dojin con, almost everyone is going to be speaking Japanese as well as everything there being in Japanese. If you go to Comitket expecting something like SDCC or AX you are not going to have a fun time. There are not going to be a bunch of big name people in anime and manga there.

Being a dojin con would the same if there was a fanfic con in the US. You were not going to meet the creator of My Hero Academia, you were going because your favorite fanfic MHA writer was going to be there.

That has never been the case for any AX going back as far as 2005. I don't know what convention you're pretending AX is, but 99.9% of it is bored weebs shuffling through halls and .1% is ongoing industry panels running advertisements on projectors, shops trying to peddle goods, and cosplay gatherings in extremely inconvenient locations. A non-stop gay pounding fest would be leaps and bounds more interesting than most AX's have ever been.

I've had the opposite experience, though maybe it was just me. I've made some great friendships at AX but was always ignored at smaller cons, ALA (especially when it was at the LAX Marriott) was a horrible experience for me because everyone was so clique-ish.

>> No.10777666

Not her but this can happen. People at huge cons tend to get into the mode of "Anybody can be talked to" because there's literally so many people that it winds up feeling like city-scale interaction. Conversely small cons tend to mostly be cliques making circles and shutting out anybody not already part of those cliques. It can go both ways in both environments but that mostly just depends on who is where and what everybody's mood is.

>> No.10777699

>ALA (especially when it was at the LAX Marriott) was a horrible experience for me because everyone was so clique-ish.
i definitely felt the same way. to me, ALA has that high school vibe where everyone just stays with their own small cliques.

Not much if anything. Maybe 200. I'm not in the market for anime merch anyways.

Not having any roomates for my expensive ass room is one.

Dangans are at every con ever. I'm not sure if it's just because the cosplays are generally easy to assemble and striking enough to be recognized, or if there just happens to be a scene across all 50 states, or if it's just generally in a state of near-constant discussion so it always winds up being relevant, but they are Homestuck levels of eternal (though fortunately not Homestuck levels of prevalent).

walk around, get your picture taken, and talk to the people who take your picture, and ask if you can hang for a while.

smile, ask others about their favorite anime or panel, and ask if you can join them.

Generally, you'll have more success with females since guys are more likely to be creeps or just oggle you, but you can meet normalfag guys too and they'd be less awkward to interact with.

>> No.10778121

if you talk to guys, talk to them normally. Don't raise your voice or do anything cutesy. That'll let them know that you view them as a pal and not a potential mate. You pretty much need to act like a guy if it takes acting.

I'm afraid of looking like that so I tend to stick with friends instead of going around on my own, but maybe things will be different this year

>> No.10778132

if its just like any other screening they've generally done in the past, its just treated like a regular panel, except they just play a movie.
in other words, its just going to be one big room and they play the movie. i doubt they are going to have multiple rooms for one movie.
i dont know if theyve announced anything big being shown but from what i saw a few days ago, i highly doubt the room is going to get filled up.

A gigantic chunk of the attendees commute because the hotel costs are insane. Basically, if they aren’t at the con center before 11am, they might as well not go because traffic will be nuts.

It puts it to a point that an effort should be made to at least pretend you've been vaccinated and to scare off the antivaxxers who are retarded enough to use that as a metric for whether they attend or not. The most vehement of their types who would quite literally shit their pants and cry at the very mention of vaccination requirements are scared off simply by mention of having them.
