Yeah. I don't know what it is. I mean, don't get me wrong, Otakon was great, but I dunno.... maybe because it was TOO big. I go to AB, and I see two-three staffers dressed up as their icons (A-Chan, B-Kun, and the new "Digit" character who has hosted the Masquerade the last two years), it's smaller, but feels homey/tighter than Otakon where it feels wide-spread and emptier in various locations (Best way to explain this is, you have halls at Otakon near empty all the time between rooms like back by the dealers room, but then at AB, you have practically every hallway crowding with people)... and I take part in the AMV stuff at AB.... the AMV creators host a Thursday night dinner for everyone, and Adam join them being a major part of it.
Again, I like Otakon, but it's just not an AB to me, and just never will be. It would be great if Otakon did the same thing and had Hiroko and Hiroshi cosplayers each year. That little thing adds IMO.
