I'm looking for an anime (or game) convention in or around New York. Me and my friends are already too late to catch anime next, and there's no baaf =O can anyone help?

Also check out the NYO! board section on cosplay.com, seeing how we have any NYC gaming/anime event covered before anyone else.

Not all the convention are in Cally. We do have animeNEXT, BaaF and Shoujocon, granted the later of the two are post poned for next year. We also now have gameonny, which promises to be a celebrity filled E3 for the public. w00t and such.

i know, it's just... the irony. Also, CA is reight across from Japan... so there's a lot of fans out there. Anyway, I'm just all sad that BAAF is out.... ._. pooo. That's the one my big group of friends usually go to, and I was finally going to go with them this year, before three of them go off to college.... >_< meep. Oh well, at least they're not going too far away =^..^=
