There's several anime conventions such as Fanime, Anime Expo, and others. For me, I'll be going to Fanime. ^^

there's aya again, in northampton, that it seems has only just been (see aya again (http://www.ayacon.org.uk/)). there's also minamicon in southampton & amecon in leicester (you can get to their websites from the ayacon links page). i haven't been to any of them, so i can't comment on what they're like...

Minamicon 2004 is already fully booked - one of the key differences between UK and US cons is that, as UK cons are smaller, you can't just turn up and expect to get in. Amecon (http://www.amecon.org) still has places though - it's from the 20th to the 22nd of August 2004 and is only about 40% full so far.

Ayacon is the UK's biggest con, but we're still waiting for the committee to announce if they're going to run next year. Other than that, there are a couple of smaller affairs like Wildercon (http://www.wildercon.org), which is run on a campsite (yep, accomodation is in tents...), but apart from the big three there's nothing that would even be given the name "convention" if it was in the US.

Anime Expo is always on the July 4th weekend. It's the granddaddy of them all, and I always have a blast. I've been going for about 5 years now (it's in my county so I got no reason not to) and I wouldn't miss it for the world. :love: This year it was at the Disneyland hotels and convention center, the past two years it was in the Long Beach convention center. Huge places! I preferred the Video 1 in Long Beach, though, because of it's four levels of seating. :)

I think there was one in October in Lancaster, CA. I wanted to go to that but I couldn't. :(
