What is the B.A.A.F. like?

To my knowledge, AXNY isn't going to happen in 2003!

Instead, there's the Big Apple Anime Fest, and I was thinking of going out for that. Can anyone tell me what that one's like?

BaaF was like my first con, so most of my memories are of the warm fuzzy type. It was virgin con, so things werent as ran well as they could have been, but I had fun. But this year's BaaF has a great location, so that's cool. And Baaf was responsible for ALL the good guests and movies at AXNY last year, so mucho props towards em.

Go to BAAF 2003! It's going to be a whole lot different and better! Everything won't be spread out and it's going to have what every other con has but more! I went last time (BAAF 2002), which was my very first con and I had a blast!

Check out the website:

I wasn't too fond of AXNY personally...Just not impressed. I moved from Florida to Rhode Island this summer and stopped by the con on the first day. (Saturday). It was worse then trying to fit 10 pounds of cake in a one pound pan it was so crowded! Then again, I'm spoiled with Jacon. Which is and will always be my favorite convention.

I may go again if it's just going to be BAAF (Without the AX in front of the con, it will probably be smaller.), and I don't mind going all over midtown if they give reasonable times between events since I know my way around the city well enough. However, if they are expecting another crowd like they had last year, they may consider getting a bigger venue in a more open area, even if it's not in Manhattan directly. Like Adelphi University in Garden City on Long Island or something.

Just a suggestion! ^_^

I think we all should fly down for Jacon. ^_^ It's at the end of this month (May.) in Orlando. It's a sweet mediocre-sized con that's always lots of fun.
