Post what would make the best ACEN ever. Not one that actually happened, (unless it was exactly what you think would be the best ACEN ever would be, lol), but whatever you think would make the greatest combination of awesome.

My Best ACEN Ever:

Bands: Asian Kung-Fu Generation, The Gazette, An Cafe, & Miyavi
Cosplay: Kirby, a perfect Digimon group
Events: A perfect Host Club meeting
Rave music: LOTS OF PENDULUM, MSI, other random techno
Other: Moar cheap fooooooooooods
Artists: Delya, Carnival, Shirotsuki, Flipsidered

add your own stuff! It's 3 AM so I probably missed a whole bunch of obvious stuff, lol.

Some really awesome event to keep people in line for badges entertained, something so full of win that people will think twice about going into the actual convention area. :lol:

I would cry in a corner if we had all those bands. It'd be so much work for us in MP.


Also. Please don't call it "rave music" or "techno". Techno is a sub-genre of EDM (electronic dance music). Pendulum is of the sub-genre known as "drum 'n bass". Please call the music by it's correct name. Or atleast as EDM/dance music if you don't know. :[

I appreciate your correcting of my terminology, but I meant to type random techno, because there's no specific sub-genre I like over any other sub-genre, so I was just generalizing.

Thanks, though! ^_^

My Best ACEN Ever:

Bands: Asian Kung-Fu Generation, The Gazette, An Cafe, & Miyavi

^^ I think I'd die if The GazettE ever came to ACen. Hell, if they ever came to the US *complains that they haven't yet*!! My best ACen ever would be the same, minus An Cafe, unless Bou came back. I actually passed up the offer to fly to Cali to go to Fanime and see An Cafe, so I could go to ACen ^^;

Hm...mine~

Bands: L'Arc~en~Ciel, Nanne Gronvall (shut up, I know she's Swedish and has nothing to do with anime, but this doesn't have to make perfect sense)
Guests: Katsura Hoshino, Bisco Hatori, Shinichiro Watanabe, Tomo Takabaysahi, Kentaro Yabuki, Liam O'Brien, Michelle Ruff, Sam Riegel, Dan Woren, Chris Patton, Jamie Marchi
Other: Vic Mignogna nowhere to be found, dealers' room having my damnable Allen Walker PVC figure that I'd kill for and GwenGun doujinshi, cosplayers from Kyo Kara Maoh, AA having artwork from series I actually care about and not overkill of the overly popular stuff that I consider crap, all my friends from years past being there, actually being able to get into the rave without waiting outside with the smokers, and probably more things my brain blanked out on.
South Korea likes breasts.
Ukraine has breasts.
She has them in spades.
If South Korea and Ukraine were to hook up...
Then South Korea would never have a shortage of breasts ever again.

Wow, I agree with a lot of things everyone's said here and I'm not sure what would make it better from my perspective. I think I'd just have to say that a really awsm group of cosplayers would make me content. Heh, I don't ask for much...

The best most winningest acen that could possibly exist ever would be....

Band: the beatles, back from the dead. Maybe Nirvana too, complete with Kurt Cobaian, and of course, elvis.

Cosplay: thousands of really really hawt chicks, who are all single.

Events: A presentation by some mad scientist who invented a portal to the animu world. Attendees can pass through one of these portals for five bucks. In other worlds, the weeaboo holy grail.

Location: forget Rosemont, or chicago, this one will be held on the moon! 1/6 gravity FTW! And you can take the Orion for 10 bucks round trip.

ACen '04...I don't think any other con ever will top that epicness of a week...and yes I did say week as I got there on wednesday and stayed until tuesday night.

I'd explain why, but it would never do it justice.

You know what? I was thinking about that because I know when ACen that ended last year, I was in denial of that and it was so depressing to be done with the con. So yes! That would be totally awesome.

same with me, i went on a walk around rosemont. it was sunny and the sun was setting. i felt like a part of me was missing. After the walk i went to my car, looked over everything i bought, read a little of it, and then cried. I wish it was longer.... i really wish i do.... (and i wish that if it was longer, i'd have money for it)

Yeah. The Hyatt and the con center look so sad and lifeless without the vibrant presence of cosplayers. It does bring a tear to my eye. That's why I can't watch the closing.

in some ways, i wish Acen was like GenCon; Larger than Xbox Huge vendor hall, open four days/nights, and more food places nearby. But ya know, Acen is a nice con in itself and i'm blessed to have it ^^

I've never been to a closing myself, not by choice, but cuz we always have to leave before we can. I know that if I stayed for it I'd cry like crazy, though, :) .
