View Full Version : Anime USA website and who's going.
06-14-2003, 03:28 AM
here's the website for the con:
so for starters, anyone planning on going? I was looking at cons for later in the year considering there's not many...Nekocon looks cool too, but considering its on the week of my b-day I might not be able to go to that one. I'm not even sure if I'll be able to go to this, it depends on my class work load, but this is probably the most likely of all the late year cons.
Anyone else planning on going, or gone to any previous ones? I'd like to know how they are, and if Nekocon would be better off.
06-14-2003, 11:43 AM
I've been to Anime USA in 2000. It's a really small convention but if you live in the area i say, why not?
I'm probably going to go this year because it's like 10 mins from my house and i know my friends will go.
I will be there Friday and Saturday. ^___^
I went last year, and it has its ups and downs.. I liked it because it was a smaller con, and it was really more "friendly" and less-rushed than a lot of other cons... it was great just to talk to people and hang out. On the downside, sometimes things get a little slow... ^^;;
But it's close enough to where I live, so I'll go! *^_^*
06-16-2003, 04:04 AM
hmmm, so it's probably not the best con to make a trip for? I'm just wondering because if so, I'd probably just save my money and put more of it towards next years cons.
06-16-2003, 08:49 AM
> hmmm, so it's probably not the best con to make a trip for?
Definitely not. I am going because it's a stone's throw away from where I live, but it's rather small and uneventful, not the kind I con I would travel to, unless I had friends attending (which is what Katan is doing actually since I will be there).
Nekocon would be a better choice, imo.
06-21-2003, 01:32 PM
hey sami, i'm from germantown too! :D im thinking about going to anime usa since i could just take the metro there, but i'm not sure...i'll probably go ^_^
Wee, Germantown people unite! ^_____^ I'm just going to drive down after work on Friday and stay until Saturday.
I'm glad it's close by or else I really wouldn't go out of my way. It's pretty small, and unless you can keep yourself amused it can have it's long points of boring-ness. But it's fun! It's a lot easier to talk to random people at small cons, IMO. :)
06-24-2003, 11:29 PM
I'm between the border of Germantown and "Ghettosburg". I'll only go there for Friday and Saturday because what the Hell? If there's a rave and a DDR compeition then I'll stick around.
06-27-2003, 11:03 AM
I went last year with my bf and it was fairly entertaining. Still, I'd prefer nekocon to anime usa.
(woot! 200th post....)
07-01-2003, 12:11 PM
Myself and Emiko are going to drive down, simply cuz it'll be our first con since Tekkoshocon! We live a good 6 hours away, but we love the smaller conventions.
Look for us as Gijinka Kero-chan and Gijinka Suppi-chan! ^.^
07-03-2003, 08:32 PM
We are 90% sure that we're going.
If we are going were probably going to wear our Baiken and Anji Mito from Guilty Gear again. And I want to try to make Ayato and Quon from Rahxephon and Juri and Ruka from Revolutionary Girl Utena. But none of that is set in stone.
I love small cons, so I'm looking forward to this convention. I never heard of it until a few months ago. It's only 3 hours away, that's really close for us.
We're bringing one of our best friends along with us, so we can split the room price. (well, that's not the only reason we're bringing him) He's not a cosplayer though, but that's okay, we still love him.
07-07-2003, 05:12 PM
Wow, that would be awesome! Sure we'll bring Luc and Sarah.
07-10-2003, 12:48 AM
Does anyone know how many people were at last year's con? I live in NC and am coming up this year with a bunch of friends, so I was just wondering...
07-10-2003, 12:15 PM
Whee, I love Anime USA... ^-^ Definately small, like others said, but I really like it. I went to it three times before I ever went to another con... @_@;... Well, I'm coming again this year, and I'll probably bring my RedXIII costume! (Unless I die wearing it at Otakon... o.o; )
I don't know how many people were there... I think I knew at some point, but I never remember numbers. x_x; But in comparison, maybe... Otakon : Anime USA :: elephant : ant... ... or maybe an amoeba or something. ^^;
Well, I just found out about this con today and there's a good chance I might be able to go since its only about 20 or so minutes away from me. I have no clue if I'd go to the entire thing or what cosplay I would bring to it, all depends on if a few friends of mine can go too or not. It seems pretty cheap so that's good but I might just save my money for the other cons I'm going to instead.
07-16-2003, 10:11 PM
im going this year it will be my 1st... im gonna sit mostly in the art room trying to sell my crappy stuff lol... and im only gonna mke one new costume for this one and not 8 like i did for otakon @_@...
07-17-2003, 03:44 PM
I'm Going to Anime USa this year, I've been coming to this small con ever since it came about. which was only 4 years ago (this being it's 5th). It's Pretty nice being a small convention and all..i had fun while i was there. But small dealers room and game room.
But last year that had nice guest! ^^;
07-19-2003, 04:44 PM
If this Con is really worth it I might take the trip down there. For some of the people that went last year. Is it worth it? I could probably just drive down there for a day or so. It's not too far away and all.
07-20-2003, 09:16 PM
it's a Pretty good Con, Maybe stay for one day was enough for me
07-20-2003, 10:11 PM
Mishima: If you know people and are going to hang out, then it's alright. If you like cons with more events or interesting things happening, then stay at home. I went for a day last year with two friends and we left after a few hours (nothing happening, no point in staying). ^^;
I will be there again this year though, as there are friends going with whom I would like to hang out.
07-20-2003, 11:06 PM
^_^ I'll be there again this year. Last year was fun getting to meet various people and taking absolutely random pictures. Like .. the "thoughtful Squall pose in the big round chair" and the "can't reach the gil pose" over the fountain. Not to mention going up to Chili's to have lunch in costume. Ahh .. good times.
I'll be driving there on Friday ( yay for half days! ) and probably leaving on Saturday. ^___^ I can't wait to see everyone! :D
arc the lad
07-21-2003, 08:55 PM
i might, is it worth it??
07-23-2003, 02:39 PM
hey im postive im going cause i live in richmond and its close so what the heck!im going as kikyo most likely...lolz hope to see yall there!
07-29-2003, 02:32 PM
I'm going w/lunasreincarnat and some of our friends.... looks like fun. Can't be all bad, at least I'd get to meet Ayato Kamina's voice actor.
07-31-2003, 03:02 AM
yes wee lots of fun fun fun... i hope to win the costume contest!
08-07-2003, 08:43 PM
We are now 100% sure we're going. (unless some crazy unforseen circumstance occurs)
And like I said in my previous posts, the costumes I want to bring aren't set in stone.....I've already changed my mind a little bit.
Baiken & Anji Mito from Guilty Gear X
Sarah and Luc from Suikoden 3
Juri and Ruka from Utena
May and Axl Low from Guilty Gear X
Jam and Sol-Badguy from Guilty Gear X
I'm currently obsessed with Guilty Gear cosplay. (could you tell :) )
I'm making more GGX costumes for Ohayocon as well. ( There is a slight chance that I will make my Rahxephon costumes for Anime USA too.)
08-10-2003, 04:57 PM
rogue - :D Juri and Ruka! That is very cool. My friend and I went to Otakon as Nanami and Keiko a la school uniforms. ^__^ Maybe we'll run into you .. though .. its a pretty small con so we're bound to! ^__^
08-10-2003, 05:53 PM
Cool Beans! Utena is good......
08-13-2003, 08:14 AM
I'm definetly going, this is one of my favorite cons. I can easily say, if you see your friends once, you WILL see them again. Unlike another con i know ::coughOtakoncough:: If you like small cons, you're more likely to love this con, its stayed small, but not in a bad way.
08-13-2003, 06:09 PM
I'll be heading there. this will be my 3rd year going basicly cause it's close to where i live. I'm still debating on rather to stay to whole weekend or part or it. maybe if there's a party happing ;)
08-22-2003, 01:50 AM
I'm going if I keep my grades up!
>>I'm Going to Anime USa this year, I've been coming to this small con ever since it came about
I will find you at this con! I SWEAR!
08-23-2003, 10:19 AM
My friends and I have attended Anime USA the past 3 years. It's definitely on the radar this year. It is small but in some ways that makes it a little more cozy. It's definitely a positive change of pace and small isn't a negative in my opinion.
08-23-2003, 02:52 PM
I might be going! Me and my friends are doing a Yu Yu Hakusho cosplay group, I'm being Shizuru! I'm lucky cause all I need to do is buy a pair of greenish pants, I can use the shirt and tie from my Millie costume for the rest, Yay! Although lets hope I make honor roll so I can go x.x
08-23-2003, 03:53 PM
Aquila- Can I take your's guys picutre please???? O_o I guess I have it lucky I just to get all C's or above.
08-23-2003, 04:14 PM
Of course, I dunt see why not, I'll have to remember a purple ribbon this time, cause I forgot to wear one at Otakon. So far we have a Shizuru, Kuwabara(The best one ever which we met at Otakon), a Yusuke(Friend of the Kuwabara who we also met at the con), a Yukina, a Keiko and a Hiei, I'm trying to get my friend to be Kurama, but our Keiko is against it x.x We might have a Botan if Spiffy wants to do it(If she can even come)
08-23-2003, 06:38 PM
Aquila- XD YEA! I hope you can get all your people together. Yea the same thing happen to me at otakon, but I found Effey and took some from her. Wanna sign a DDR pad too? X3
08-25-2003, 08:05 PM
I might be In costume..still debating on that....^_^
09-01-2003, 08:56 PM
i'm going i'm going! driving down from Nj cause my gf wants me to go to it with her cause she didn't get to go to otakon. I probably won't be dressed up, but i will be carrying a sign for only one reason. I'm gonna try and enter my AMV into the contest, and if it makes it in, i wanna hold a sign so people know its me who made it lol...
09-01-2003, 11:54 PM
Someone else said it before but I'll say it again, AnimeUSA is like RENO, Nevada, its the Biggest Little Convention there is.
09-02-2003, 08:12 PM
YESYESYES I'm goooing, my mom said yes. :D
And yase, I shall be Botan here. I kept saying at Nekocon, but I was confused as usual. Yay. :thumbsup:
09-02-2003, 08:13 PM
...And waitaminute, we have a Hiei? o__O;
09-02-2003, 09:33 PM
I'm gonna ask my mom if I can go. I live 2-3 hrs away but what the heck? It looks like fun lol XD.
I'll ask since its cheap lol XD.
09-03-2003, 08:11 AM
Ok I asked her and she said maybe!! She said to remind her about it in a week! She's gonna talk to my aunt about it. My dad doesn't do cons lol XD. Well if I do go, I'll be going as Inuyasha since I'm hoping to be Inuyasha for halloween lol XD.
09-10-2003, 05:08 AM
I'm probably going to go to it. I went last year and met Scott McNeil. Plus it's just another con to look foward to. When is AnimeUSA, btw? (Hey.. that rhymes..)
09-10-2003, 07:45 AM
Nov 21-23, 2003 Anime USA Tyson's Corner, Virginia
09-29-2003, 05:02 AM
I really want to make a con before the end of the year so it's either this one or nekocon. November is going to be a very busy month work wise so things aren't looking good for either of the two. If I have the weekend off (key word if) I will go. The only con I have been to is Otakon so I would like to check out a smaller con.
09-29-2003, 05:27 PM
I don't think I can go to Anime USA anymore. My ride bailed on me. It makes me so sad ;;
Yay, due to an offer of an RO cosplay group and cheap rooming, I am now going :)
I'll be bringing... Wizard (RO), and one or two Naruto costumes.
10-02-2003, 10:56 AM
Hmm I live in PA do you think its worth going? I'm going as maryl if anyone gonna go as a trigun char!But i'm sure it will be fun still....I went to the otakon as shippou i'm only 10 so i'm chibi
10-04-2003, 11:09 PM
Hmm...Shippou at Otakon...I might've seen you...
IS THIS YOOOU? (http://a0.cpimg.com/image/24/8D/24264740-cc87-014001F3-.jpg)
10-06-2003, 03:54 PM
I'm going to try to go, I've got random friends scurried about. :D
10-08-2003, 12:19 AM
Yep well it is official. Barring some major event, I will be attending AnimeUSA. It is going to be lots o' fun. I love small cons over big cons.
10-08-2003, 11:53 AM
I'm gonna be there. Gonna be driving down with Ramanji ( I think we're taking the my car). I'm gonna have no money and I probably won't cosplay, cause I need alot more time to get my Mitsurugi costume done and I don't feel like doing tetsuo again..but yeah, lookin forward to meeting whomever there...
10-10-2003, 12:27 AM
GAHH I look like such an idiot Did you get the picture with sesshomaru kagome shippou[me] and kagura? that was like one of the best group pics ever and anyways I was lazy and didnt get started until like 3 days before the convention thats why my costume sucked :waaaah: This time I vow to work hard on me meyrl costume!!!!
10-10-2003, 05:14 AM
You speak liiiiies~
I think your costume was good and stuffs. Helluva lot better than mine looked. :p
And no, I didn't get that picture. Which makes me a saaad Spiffy. :blubber:
11-08-2003, 12:01 PM
I still need to get my pants for my Shizuru costume, and Spiffy...you need to make your Kimono!
11-08-2003, 12:12 PM
Rawr I need to make my Meryl costume ehhhh! HELP
11-08-2003, 02:39 PM
The only way I can go is if someone near me is going and would be willing to take me with ^___^. :gives puppy eyes:

11-09-2003, 03:04 PM
At Otakon I had a Millie Costume...lol, but with a Meryl costume..what do you need help on? Oh and buy the way...I'll be the Shizuru(Like there will be many..) with fading blue streaks in the front, and I'll be with a whole crowd of people!
11-14-2003, 05:48 PM
I think I will be going. Probably by mysef. :( This is would be my first time to Anime USA. I woud be coming from Mitchellville, MD. [Represent! as people here would say]

11-14-2003, 07:57 PM
I'm gonna go, gonna be late cause I can't go with my ride because gotta take exam friday at 5pm. But afterthat I'm taking the first Greyhound done there! How to find me? I wear Trigun Glasses, long black hair, carry a huge boom box and have a NY accent.
11-15-2003, 02:06 PM
I'm driving (or rather forcing my dad to drive me) down from PA. It's only going to be my second con, but the size doesn't matter for me. Otakon was my first, and, well, my feet were a blazing inferno of pain afterwards. -_- A smaller con is a welcome change, especially since I didn't really do many of the events at Otakon in the first place, and this time I'm bringing a friend (her first con)...
Mitiroshi - I saw you! But our camera broke before. ;_; I missed so many great pictures... *sob*
11-19-2003, 05:51 PM
I don't know if I'm going. I may, may not, depends if my club or any of my other friends are going. I cannot go by myself. I don't know what it's like. But if I do, it'll be on Saturday.
11-19-2003, 07:40 PM
I shall be at Anime USA. I was invited by some friends, and I guess I'll be there this weekend. This is going to be a relaxing con for me.
11-19-2003, 08:28 PM
I'll be going on Saturday, maybe Friday too, I haven't decided. I'll be wearing my Fire Fairy Phoenix Thing...if you see me, i'll be in all red with a red,orange and yellow feathered headdress thingo.
^_^ so excited!
