Hey I think it would be great if some how there could be a con in or around Rochester, N.Y. There are so many people who go to cons that live near or in Rochester but travel for hours to get to a con. Also there are a lot of people who like anime in Rochester that I think a somewhat big con could be possible. It would be so neat but I don't know how it would happen though (money issue). I guss its just a dream. Sob.

Kaine: You got Yuricon. Be happy with it. This side of PA has NOTHING. Well, there's Philcon, but that's mainly scifi... Kosaikon doesn't come til Spring '04... *shrug*

We'll trade you Yuricon for Shoujocon back. ;)

Nah, we'll keep Shoujocon. If Anime Next takes off, it'll mos likely be in the Meadowlands. That should kickass.

Personally, I would like to see Anime Next decide to stay here in New York State, and grow to Anime Expo or Otakon like proportions. It would be perfect for the Fall.

If Anime Next moved to the Meadowlands, I'd be in heaven. It's just 5 minutes down the road for my parents' house. Though, I know there's a sci fi con held there every October already.

Yeah, Rochester needs an anime con. We have a sci-fi one (I hear there's some anime rooms) and a gaming one but no ALL ANIME con! UR does the gaming one but that would be cool if RIT could somehow organize an anime con like the UB did. I would definitely want to help with something like that but I have no idea how to organize a con- that's a job for the smart people to do XD

The Meadowlands is a great location for an anime con- right near NYC and in a great NJ location too.

I've bene to Chiller Theatre (horror and sci-fi con) at the Meadowlands a few times and it rocks.
