I'm going to the AnimagiC. Well, like ever. It's the 5th time that I'm there. It'S Germanys biggest Manga/Anime convention (only Manga/Anime. The Frankrurther Buchmesse is bigger, but it's Manga/Anime-part is smaller than the AnimagiC). It's going to take place in Bonn and lasts for 3 days (from July 27th to July 29th).
In June I was at the Japan Day in Düsseldorf. It's the worlds biggest Convention of it's type (?). The Japanese firework was great. *-*

Sydney-siders~ SMASH! is going to be held at The Roundhouse at UNSW in Kengsinton on the 18th of August! It goes from 10am to 6pm. Tickets are cheaper than that of Animania and according to my friends, it's way better. For more info, check out their website.
Anyone who's interested, Animania is coming up in Sydney on the 28th of September and will end on the 30th of September. Opening and closing times are 10am to 7pm and it will be held at Town Hall. Click here for their website.

No more cons until MangaNEXT in October. (Skipping out on AWA this year... I would LOVE to do Anime Vegas, but I wouldn't make the trip unless a LARGE group from the East Coast was going too. Anime Vegas is right around my birthday. So it would be fun.) And MAYBE AAC later in October. (Skipping out on AUSA...)

Okay, I'm doubting anyone lives close enough to attend this but I figure I'd announce it just to be sure in case anyone is in the area.
In 2 weeks, Animethon 14 starts in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada! It is being held at Grant MacEwan College from the 10th to the 12th. The 10th is the anime dance party, while the rest of the con activities start on the 11th.
List of Guests (so far) Trevor Devall (Neo from Gundam Seed, and various Transformers roles) Vic Mignogna (uhm....Edward Elric. XDDD) Kyle Hebert (Falman, Teen Gohan from DBZ) Tiffany Grant (Asuka Langley Sohryuu from Evangelion and a crapload of other roles XD) Matt Greenfield (co-founder and senior vice president of ADV Films) The 404s (the anime improv group that got their start at Animethon)
Note this isn't a final list, these are just the guests who have confirmed their involvement. The list may be added to in the next two weeks!
This con used to be very small, but has grown considerably in the last two years. Two years ago we would never have gotten a name like Vic Mignogna to come. In fact, he was the last person I ever expected to come. *Fushi does a little squee*
So, if you're in the area, drop by! And...maybe you might run into me.
