Considering I've been gone from Washington for the past 4 years or so I'm curious if there are other anime related cons in the state or in the Pacific Northwest region.

I know about the ill-fated Aka-Con (I think that's the name) in Vancouver, BC and the Anime Oasis in Boise, ID. Not even going to count InCon over in "the can." **snicker**

If anyone knows of any others I would like to know!!

Been attending the Texas anime cons while I was stationed with the AF in New Mexico. Now that I'm back home (but still in the AF), I want to see what the whole area has been up to since I've been gone. :D

There was a new con in Vancouver this year - Anime Evolution. It was held at SFU, and it was pretty good for a first-year con. Great guests, although the registration line was LONG, so if you do go next year, make sure you preregister and avoid the 6-hour wait. x.x;;

The lineup delay was actually caused by SFU not doing what they were told to. -_-;; SFU was told to cut all the badges, but they didn't, so the staff had to cut them all out by hand, which obviously, caused huge delays. It's doubtful it'll happen again.

As for preregistering, it didn't save time in the lineup at all. X_x;;;
