  1. So, how long ’til the next “manga is over” comment, eh? ;]

    Otakon looks like so much fun . . . I’ve only been to dinky local cons, hopefully someday I’ll be able to attend a big one. :]

    Argh. I haven’t been to Otakon in years. It was the first one I ever went to. I know friends who go all the time. Another friend who went this year, I think her first time at Otakon, said she did well at her artist alley booth. It’s about 11 thousand more than Anime Boston. I think the New York Anime Fest, along side the comic con now, may pull in about the same as AB.
