[Updated Apr. 16: looks like I’m going to Acen this year…and Otakuthon. Anorth is out though.]
This is a blog post that will keep track of the nerd events I’m attending in 2018. It will be updated over time to add/delete and update the status of the events I plan to attend or have attended. If you’re going to one of these, feel free to let me know ahead of time. You can find last year’s log post here.
In 2018 I think I’m just going to be kind of vague, since YOLO’ing the past 2 years has kind of caught up. There are some stuff I’d like to go and see/participate but a lot of maybes are really in play. Just going to throw them down as guidelines.
My Eventernote profile here. Annotations: Bold for overseas trip, italics for local trips…relatively local trips.
(1/6-1/7) The IDOLM@STER Hatsuboshi Enbu @ Makuhari Messe Event Hall – Complete.
(3/2-3/4) Kawaii Kon 2018 @ Hawaii Convention Center, HI – Complete. Tons o fun!
(3/31-4/1) WUGBUS III @ Sendai – Complete!
(5/18-5/20) Anime Central 2018 @ Rosemont, IL – Mainly for fhana tour. Confirmed though.
(5/27-28) Anime North @ Toronto Congress Center – 25% chance I’d say. Yasukichi makes it worth going, but it’s a wild card still. Probably still not gonna go at this rate.
(5/27) fhána World Atlas Tour 2018 Hokkaido @ Live Hall Kraps Hall – Most likely confirmed.
(6/2-6/3) IDOLM@STER MILLION LIVE 5th Anniversary @ Saitama Super Arena – Got help despite zenmetsu, see you there.
(6/8-6/10) AnimeNext 2018 @ Atlantic City Convention Center, NJ – Gonna yukkuri this.
(7/4-7/8) Anime Expo 2018 @ Los Angeles Convention Center, CA – I guess traditionally I hear stuff by March.
(8/3-8/5) Otakuthon 2018 @ Palais des congrès de Montréal, Canada – YOLOing this, but they have a serious lineup…
(8/10-8/12) Otakon 2018 @ Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Wash. DC. – Probably will be there.
(8/24-8/26) Animelo Summer Live 2018 @ Saitama Super Arena – 25% chance now.
(9/21-9/23) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2018 @ Renaissance Waverly Hotel & Cobb Galleria, GA – Maybe. Leaning towards unlikely at this point due to conflicts.
(November) AnimeNYC @ Javits Center – Local but whatever
I’m trying to keep this year a bit more manageable. Anisama is unlikely but probably a yolo.
