luckily I live in California LA to be exact, I had planned on going to Fanime to see Flow live and AM2 right now is my top choice to see Sadie, Scandal and Kanon x Kanon which isn't 100% decided but its free and has more to offer so that might be where I go.

Im also debating if I spend the 40 bucks for the passport for the prioritized seating which isnt too bad still, well guess Ill wait a few more weeks and see AX Prices is already at 70 and raises 5 bucks more but lacks for me right now.

Yeah. AX might not really be worth it, but there will definitely be more people at AX than AM2, I believe. AM2 might have commuters... people traveling to and from LA to see certain events so who knows!

I live right next to where AM2 is held (AX's old home) but I will be at a hotel in LA for AX! I wish they didn't do this competitive scheduling. >_>

I am a J-Rock fan. So I really want to see Sadie. I want to Scandal and Wakeshima Kanon as well. I have two of Wakeshima Kanon's albums. So hopefully she will sign autographs before or afterwards. My aunt and cousins live in LA. So I will probably ask them next month if I could stay there for a few days. My cousins are big anime and J-Pop fans as well. So most likely they will be going with me. Most of my friends are kind of broke. So it is doubtful they will go with me.

There is another anime convention in Dallas, Texas where the J-Rock band D is going to play. I was tempted to go, but since the con in LA is better and I don't really like their new stuff, I will probably not go now.

Aww, that stinks about not getting to go with your friends. tbh, AM2 is a free-to-attend con so the only problem I guess is getting to California for your friends... ;(~~~

TBH, for the most part I have gone to AX alone and met up with people while there... but I started going in a group since last year.

I'd love to go to an out of town con...but that is simply out of the question right now ):

only going to all the Vancouver cons atm~
(Anime Revolution 2012, Minicomi 2012 :p)

I'd be kinda glad if I could see some jrock too...but this is probably the wrong forum to discuss it xD

Not sure if many people here go to cons sadly.

I hear the con scene in Canada is a bit sad though... I suggest going and trying to go to gatherings! Hopefully you have fun if you do decide to go.

Oh I just checked out Anime Revolution, looks interesting with their Sailor Moon guests and all the supports they have from being a new convention, I'm gonna go and try it out coz it sounds really big and fun considering that there aren't that many big conventions here
