Oni Con is wonderful. It's the con I've attended the longest in the Houston area. Although they seem to be in a habit of getting schedules up late, they always have amazing panels, events, and the people are lovely. I honestly haven't had a single complaint except for '10 when some of their con staff was...Well, extremely rude.
However, the last two years I've had nothing but nice people, a friendly atmosphere, and some amazing stuff in the dealer's room. Getting a regular priced $150 Kaworu figurine in there for $65 was quite the steal. And a good quality.
