I am changing my pre-con vote of no to yes. While it is not due to anything bad or wrong during my time at the con, I just didn't feel it like I used to.
Decided not to bring a signature book due to lack of interest.

I'll admit that it's crossed my mind, but... No. That time hasn't come yet.

While I do think there are some things that need to worked through and there was a strange air about this year I'm just not ready to give up! I still love acen and it's the biggest con I go to all year.

Im taking a year off to do and plan other vacations next year, and will keep an eye on the forums to see how things go for next year. If it appears to have gotten better by then I may consider coming back after that.

I really seriously wonder why ACen's atmosphere changed so drastically between last year and this year. Outside of the issues with the fire, nothing seemed particularly different about the con. Is is the demographic is changing, or the con itself is? It actually makes me fairly sad, because I was hoping ACen could be the one event of the year I could look forward to for now on..guess not, though.

Next year may or may not be my last year. I'll be staying in Embassy Suites next year instead, to see if that makes a difference. I am wondering if the timing was just wrong or something, everything felt off since arriving. Maybe it was just a fluke.

Giving ACen next year to redeem itself, otherwise I'll be exploring other options.
I love guinea pigs and cats and Sgt. Frog.

i still go to acen, i just want a 2nd con at the 2nd half of the year, my friend hype up reactor, and maybe it was good in the some magical time, but that con was crap. i had a full weekend pass and didn't bother to showup on saturday, i think i wrashed gurren lagann set 2 (best speech of the series is EP11 on that set) and played warhammer 40K.


I've heard that from a lot of people, and it may have turned people off from going to other cons but ACEN. I really recommend Anime Midwest... especially with the guest list and event schedule. It's going to be pretty awesome (and their ad was on the back of the ACEN program book!!!). <3

I think ACEN just has ups some places and downs some places like every other con, but overall I think it's awesome. :D

Just when you think you're ready to go the ACen comes back to get ya! LOL

I was considering in my head just doing Saturday or Friday/Saturday only next year but it's too hard for me to pass up the awesome 4-day ACen weekend!!! My reason was to save money for more trips/conventions. While I would like to continue trying new ones, I just can't walk away from ACen, it's my first ever con and my favorite so far.
