So who is going to Anime North 2004?

Hi everyone,
I just can't wait till Anime North. I was just wondering who was going. This will be my third year at AN. I missed this years because they changed the days *cries*. What year will it be for you? I like AN because I only have a three hour drive insted of a seven hour drive to Anime Boston or a six hour drive to Otakon. How long does it take you to get to AN? I don't know what group my friends and I'm going to cosplay but I will be bringing my Merle (Escaflowne) and Ryoko (Tenchi Muyo) costumes. We might cosplay Trigun. Don't know. Are you cosplaying from any of these series? If not what series and what character(s)? I can't wait to see everyone at AN.

Also, has anyone had a table in Artist alley before at AN? Do you have any suggestions for a first timer? Thanks. ^_~*

as long as there isnt another SARS breakout i'll be there lol. *prays to the gods that there is no weird outbreak of something*. lol but i live in Roch. too so it takes me about the same time to get there as it takes you. i'm not really sure what costume i'm going to make for this con. though i know i'm going to bring my Miki (flame of recca) costume that i wore to Anime Expo CA and maybe one of my other ones. i cant wait, it'll be my 3rd con and my 2nd time at AN. ^_^'' it should be interesting... too bad they couldnt get it at a better hotel....

I thought they were changing hotels because the one they had this year went bankrupt. Do you know what the new hotel will be? They still have not announced it I think.

I heard that too, that they changed the hotel.
I pray to god its just a rumor though.. because if AN is held at the Regal..

That makes then con about,oh.. twenty minutes from my house. Which is good for someone as carsick,and impatient, as I am.

Chobrat: Unfortunately, I have heard that they are definitely changing the hotel, as the Regal Constellation has indeed gone bankrupt.

As far as I'm aware, they have not yet released the new location, but are planning on doing so soon.

Hmmm...

Well, I think 'tis true, Anime North won't be at the regal next year... or so the Anime North forums say. The new hotel hasn't been released yet...

This will be my second year there... and I'm sure it'll be great! I still have to make my first costume, get a new battery for my video camera, and a number of other things.

Doesn't matter where they move AN04. If they move it somewhere closer to the downtown core of Toronto that would make me a lot happier

But yeah, so far I'm planning on being there barring any new diseases, blackouts or freaky weather disasters.

yeah...
it's definitely not at the Regal.

The Regal is CLOSED (as I live near it...I have noticed).

So...AN will be held elsewhere in 2004.

i wish people would give up about this whole SARS thing

NEWSFLASH: if you live in the states and have to drive all the way to Toronto, your chances of getting in a car crash on the WAY to toronto were ALWAYS higher than your chance of ever getting SARS throughout that entire epidemic. get over it. you're just making us poor from lack of tourism :P

it's sad AN's moving, but that means TT is moving too :( i just hope that the new hotel has decent con rates like the Constellation did, as opposed to the horrible rates Crowne Plaza always has (thus why i never stay there). :(

As nice as having Anime North '04 closer to the downtown core would be, keep in mind the the closer it it the more expensive it will be. you remember those $89 economy rooms that people like to complaine about, well kiss those covenient prices goodbye. I'm not trying to cause any problems here, but thanks to the silly Koreans who drained all the money from the Regal and left them broke over a span of only a few years we now have to find somewhere else, which will probably be somewhere that my cheap ass can't afford...
I like the Regal... the glass elevator was fun...

And I have nothing against Koreans. ^_^

oh yah~
if they are moving it to DT, then the room is going to be WAYYYYYYYYY more expensive --_--
no~~~~ I don't want higher rates!

**plus I love Regal!

I wonder if we will move back to Regal in 2005, but I heard that the con is growing very rapidly that even if Regal is there next yr it won't be able to hold ppl for the AN2004 anyways

Apparently Anime North had outgrown the Regal for this next year. The con was going to use both the Regan and the Marriot accross the street for some functions. And the Regal has one of the largest function spaces in T.O.
