AOD just launched it's 2007 website, http://www.aodsf.org/
and now I guess it's Animation On Display instead of Anime Overdose :3
AOD will take place:

August 25 2007
Cathedral Hill Hotel
San Francisco, CA.

Pre-reg is now open for $12
the at door price will be $15

Is anyone planning on attending?
I might, depending if I have money or not. If I go I'd probably wear comic book Starfire from Teen Titans or something like that :3.

Definitely going! My cosplay plans for this year are still unknown, but I will decide when the con is drawing near. ^_^

Just added it to my list, so I'll be there!

I wonder why they went from 3 days to a 1 day. *ponders* oh well I'll be there anyways. it was fun hanging out with everybody so this'll be fun to come back to again. =)

Interesting name-change to a con after a few years. "AnimeOverDrive" could've been also contemplated.. hehe ;)

Since I missed last year's AOD, due to it being the same weekend as Otakon, I want to return to it this year. Now that the date has been announced, I see that it's one week before the big September-holiday weekend, which is when DragonCon, KumoriCon, and Anime Las Vegas take place. So that means I should be able to attend AOD this year! :)

Sooo far ahead in the calendar for conventions, but I'll post today, months before the con is here, and say that I will go. Not sure if I'll be cosplaying but definitely I'll be taking pictures!

Princess Blade
03-08-2007, 04:34 AM
Yeah, I was also surprised about the name change and the change to a 1 day convention. O.o

I'm 75% sure I'll be going with two of my friends. We'll be doing a group cosplay, but I'm keeping it under wraps for now. :P

Michi
03-09-2007, 01:45 AM
Right now I'm planning on going, since it may end up being my last U.S. con of 2007. :rockon:

Very surprised with the one day thing and name change, though! Wow~

I think Rob mentioned something about them basically shifting the event back from August to March again, which means that it's going to be 3 days in 2008, but they wanted to do something in 2007 so that people aren't left completely high and dry.

No, I won't be able to make that one! XD I'm applying for a semester abroad in Japan this fall, and I'd leave about three days after AOD. So come November, I'd be in Japan! XD No JTAF for me, heehee. Won't know for sure if I get accepted until about next month or later though.

I'll be going, but only half a day since that's the day you move your crap into the dorms. Luckily, I go to school at HNU in Oakland, so it's not much of a hassle.

Shinsengumi

Sorry guys I won't be able to show up on this one if it's for one day.

03-13-2007, 04:53 PM
when i first looked i was like 12$ that's so cheap! then i realize it's only one day, which makes me sad, but i hope they come back!

For me personally i like it better during the late summer, there's not much going on for me at that time so it's the perfect time/place =/

As of now i'd like to go so hopefully i'll be able to when time draws near! Cosplay not sure i only have stuff planned up until ax.

that's nice to hear! its kinda like a kick off show for the big one in march in a sense. a preview for the march show actually. ^^

I dunno if I'll cosplay for this show, then again it was fun playing police man in the city during WonderCon. I'll think about, hopefully I'll have everything all set up and ready for action <3

Fumei
03-21-2007, 06:06 PM
Wow, only one day? No wonder! I was like, $12 bucks? NO PROBLEM!

XD; Darn, back to March? I rather liked it in the late summer (even though 06 was my first year, when I found out about it in 2005, IT WAS THE LAST DAY OF THE CON), where THERE IS NO SCHOOL TO DISTRACT ME. :3 I hope I can make it in 08.

>> So... I guess... I'll be able to make it to this year. XD Gotta use my sick days...

my friends and are planning on going.
i wanna cosplay as Tifa or Kairi [either Kairi from KH1 or her school girl outfit in KH2.]

i talked to my friend about it and last year she said it was 3 days.

I think Fumei meant that next year is March, and wasn't referring to this year's event. It was also mentioned that 2007's AOD is more of a kick-off for 2008's early year event. :)

Fumei
04-19-2007, 03:21 PM
Ah yes, what Michi said.

AOD2006: August (3 days)
AOD2007: August (1 day)
AOD2008: March (3 days?)

D: Yeah I think I'll skip out on this year's. One day's not enough for me to skip work on. XD;;

Mhm, AOD 2004 & 2005 were both in March. So, with 2006 & 2007 in August, it's going back to March again in 2008. XD;

I am DEFINITELY going. I am hoping to finish my Bridget cosplay for the event. Oh! Apparently all the artist tables are sold out. *tears* If anyone's willing to share, I'd gladly pay for my half!! There will be benefits as well as I will also act as a errand girl to go run and help buy lunch for who ever I'm sharing with. I'll basically just be selling bookmarks, magnets, a few prints, and be up for commissions. Don't worry! I don't take up a lot of space as I'm putting everything in a little binder. ^^;

Yukari Kaiba
06-15-2007, 08:22 PM
i most likely will be going. havent decided whether i want to cosplay..if i do it most likely will either be my Renji cosplay or possibly my Ulquiorra cosplay if i can finish it.

crazy_kuroi
06-28-2007, 12:10 AM
I'm hoping with all of my heart that I can go, since it'll be my last con on the west coast until Fanime 08. I'm gonna miss all my usual favorites, like JTAF and Sakura Matsuri ;_;

I'm hoping that my Pokemon Eeveelutions cosplay group will be in full force, since we kinda bombed at Fanime. If we don't, expect me there as Tear.

06-28-2007, 11:48 AM

I'll be bringing Prince by since I will get it done by then.

Bridget. <3
On-topic now; AOD seriously has to get its shxt together if it ever wants to be taken seriously. It's been a convention for what, five years now? And as nice as it is to be able to walk around SF while knowing I won't be missing anything, it still won't be at its full potential if the setup is so inconsistent.
Stupid rant aside, I'll totally be there in my Envy costume, and if they have one, maybe in the karaoke if I don't chicken out [spoiler warning: I will] to sing Bratja.

Krnchichiri
07-02-2007, 02:20 PM
I might be going if I have a ride.
I'd love to staff there and tried to apply, so if I become staff, I'll most def. go. ^^

cherryteagirl5
07-21-2007, 06:52 PM
I'll be going for sure! This will be my first AOD, since I keep missing the ones in the past. I might also bring some of my cousins along who are into anime...and try to get them into cosplay and conventions ^_^.

Anti Ai-chan
07-24-2007, 01:34 AM
If I can, I'll be there as Bridget. I would come as A.B.A but Para wouldn't do so well on MUNI. @___@

I'm going, we are going to drive from LA all the way over there
I've only been to San Francisco once like 3 years ago and I really don't remember where we stayed
Anyone know of a good hotel nearby but not in a bad neighborhood or anything?

I'm going as Roxas from KH, my older bro is going to be something from star wars, my lil bro is going as Toad from Mario and my friend is going as Kagome and my other friend is going as Axel...i hope...he's too lazy to get his stuff D:

07-30-2007, 03:16 AM
I might be going to AOD as Inuzuka Kiba [again].
This might be my 3rd time cosplaying :3
And this is my first time going to AOD [finally, some con thats close by >.>;]
I MIGHT be going

Eurobeat King
07-30-2007, 01:02 PM
I'll try and request time-off from work to go to AOD. Since it's just for one day, it shouldn't be a problem, but the weekend after I'll be going to DragonCon, so I'm not sure if work will give me 2 weekends off in-a-row for that.

But the hotel is really close to my house, so I might go for a little bit even if work does schedule me to go in that day.

Not sure if I'll cosplay or not, but if I do, I could bring the FC3S since it's easy to bring to this con. ;) we'll see..

I'm definitely going to this AOD. I'm going to attend as Hinata Hyuuga from Naruto Shippuden, one of my best friends is going as Shippuden Temari, another friend as Tomoyo from Cardcaptor Sakura, and my sister wants to be Sakura Haruno, pre-Shippuden. We have a few more people coming with us but they haven't told me they're costumes yet ^_^''

08-06-2007, 01:30 AM
i think me and my two friends are going, we're not cosplaying just cause of the simple fact that we don't have any cosplays...lol

btw, does anyone have any pics from AOD in previous years?
i just wanna see wut it's like =]

I'll be going for sure! I had alot of fun at AOD last year due to it's small size...I was suprized.

I was planning on wearing my Pirotess again (only wore it once), but being that the con is this week I may change my mind and try to make something new and give myself a heart attack like I always do.
Now that I think about it, I don't feel like being stressed out this week, so no new costume. :(
Glad to see alot of the usuals from the Bay Area are able to attend! I'm stuck in the dealers room again, come say hi to me!!
