Heyo. This was my first ACen, and I was just curious if the total otaku attended has been calculated yet? I wanna see how it compares to Anime Boston and Otakon.

Last years numbers were 23000+. So, more than Anime Boston, but less than Otakon. I honestly have no idea how many where here this year. It seemed like to me that there were less, but that could also be because it also seemed like there was better organization this year....

Ah cool. I thought as much. I enjoy all three cons, but given that AB and ACen fall within FIVE days of each other next year, vs the 2 weeks of this year, I think I'll drop AB and just come to ACen. xD

I thought someone in another thread blurbed out a number of 24k. Post The way it was posted makes me believe 24k was passed yet 25k was not reached.

Still wondering if they are going to release official numbers like they usually do. Seems odd they are waiting so long since these numbers are easily available.
