Why.
« on: March 29, 2008, 07:51:25 pm »
Why do people keep coming to Kumori-con year after year? I mean its my only convention I go too. But I just want to know why other people go. I go mostly to be around anime fans that don't think anything on nick is anime.

Because it's in the neighborhood, and I know a lot of people who go, which makes it more fun ~!

Because it's an excuse to dress up and have fun with a bunch of other people with similar hobbies.

I go because it's close, has a friendly atmosphere, and I met a lot of great friends at Kumoricon and on the forums.

It's close, lots of friends go to it and it helps me make more friends, it helps me support the fandom by feeding it Pocky.

My family and I went for the first time last year. I am now hooked and will go every year. I have never seen so many people in one place who were just themselves no matter how odd or wierd it may have looked to others. I will now go to Kumori-con every year and try to make it to S-con every year. The cons are our new family vacations. I do not like being in large crowds of people, but I dont get that feeling at cons because everyone there has something in common with me. They Love Anime. Also its the most fun I've had in a long time.

Friends. Whether just hanging out with ones I already have or meeting new ones..that is pretty much what cons are about to me.

It's nearby,
I have easy access to so much merchandise,
I can get free hugs and give them without being dubbed a freak or led out by security =w=
I can meet new friends who share my interests really easily
It's just plain fun =D

Hmmm... good question.
Kumoricon was my first anime convention ever so it's special to me. It's close, only an hour away, and theres a while bunch of people I never see except for there! Kumoricon people are just crazy too, lol. It's my home convention so I like going every year. If you don't, then your out of the Kcon loop.
