I'm currently finding it hilarious that people don't organise one. I am young and I have no fancy pants qualifications but I have enough information that minus the registration (or lack of) and funding I could have an Anime Ball up and running in less then a month.
I myself have looked into running one, to the point of having quotes, figures, license information, venue, and lots more organisation out the wazoo!
But I want to know a few things...
1. What do people want to see at a Anime Ball? What do you imagine should be there?
2. How much would you be willing to pay for entry (includes, entry, food, drinks, prizes etc...)
3. What do you think the turn out would be like in Brisbane?
And anything else that you want to say?
