So excited it's in May again! No finals, no school no nothing!!!! ^_^ And extra time to get prepared. I hope to do a panel this year so I'm so excited!!!! ^_^ And May usually has a tiny bit kinda more predictable weather than April ;3.

Yes, warmer weather is much better for outdoor photoshoots than chilly, windy weather.

When you reserve a hotel a year ahead, how soon is your credit or debit card charged for it?


Credit Cards will be charged in early May of next year, just before con according to the contract I was just looking thru. The block will open in a few months, and we'll announce the date in the forums and on the mailing list..so keep watching.

Goodness, Rosa, you're practically keeping hours like I do!

On-topic: I'm glad for the later date, as it gives me more time to get things rolling with the department we absorbed, and make them awesome.
There is a slight flaw in my character.

Given the extra time does that mean that panels next year will know earlier if they are chosen or not?

Who makes the dates? You guys know how to get ready for next year fast. I bet a lot of college people since most, if not, all of them get out on the 11th of May. But do you think you should move it back to June?(like 18th-20th) Why? Well, I think you'll get a lot more high school to show up. I mean I did see high school kids, but around that in May. they are still doing work and had to make sure no to fall behind. I was lucky last year when I junior. I got all my work done and was ahead of the kids. But not everyone is me.
Ummm....I'm going to take you to court!

Will be waiting for my new Mayan calendar to arrive since the old one runs out this year(probably via truck if it's on stone again) and check for holidays and other interfering events that could cause problems.

Danged apocalypses and end of the world things getting in the way...

I can probably do that and buy random gifts from toranoana for the people's birthdays who fall into this dateline (not AFTER but during the con.) Like keychains or phone straps (those things are rare on that website!)

I thought about an ice cream cake but then I was like "How can I keep that in the mini fridge?"

Which means that if I go that route I have to room up at the Embassy, again. (Because a cooler won't save a cake at the Hyatt/double tree.)

Sorry, I missed that you posted a question or I'd have responded a while ago!!
We try to avoid June because there are other established shows that fall in June which we'd encroach on if we moved the dates. It's a juggling act annually, missing holidays, Golden Week, the other comparably sized cons, and the dates our venue is already booked for other things. It's about being a good citizen of the anime calendar, not stepping on others' usual dates, and warning well in advance if our dates have to be somewhere they usually don't fall. (When we found out about the April dates, we published it to Animecons.com and the con runners mailing list two years plus in advance, to avoid problems.

I'm so prepared this year. The day those badges go on sale, or my first paycheck after XD I'm so buying mine. I always last minute buy. NOT THIS YEAR!! MUHAHAHA. Also. I should hopefully get a hotel on time this year instead of last minute planning stuff where I stress about where I'm staying. :)

I still haven't unpacked all my cosplay yet. Too lazy. But I'm also gonna be stalking the ACen pages on here to see when the badges are coming in and the latest feeds. I'm totally excited about next year that I just want this year to hurry the heck up!DX
Hopefully, I can book a room at Mariott on time instead of the last minute and stress myself and my friends outXD

Can't wait for next year.


it's not a crime at all, I'm still wearing my badge from last year and the year before that! i don't know why anyone would just rush home after a con so they could get it over with. That's just crazy unless your friend doesn't like anime.... :D Happy Sweet sixteen
Having fun isn't a crime, and always go for what you think is right, which is also the same for what I think is right

What was your favorite part of the con for your first time? I really liked the panels because my knowledge of anime isn't very deep...and it really helped me learn about all the amazing anime out there!


I also like how it's in may since my birthday is may 2nd and what a better way to celebrate!
I even downloaded this app called final countdown and it's on my home screen counting down for ACen!

Well, funny story. I spent most of the con hanging out with friends. I think I went to all of one panel, and that was it. XD

The best part of the con for me was just chilling and making new friends.
