Hey gyus, I was just wondering....<P>Has Anyone gone to CNAnime in the past? If so what's it like?<P>I'm asking this because I'm interested in going, but from the website there doesn't seem to be much going on except the Music Vids, Gundam modelling and the masquerade. Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't sounds like they have much on tap.<P>Anyways, I'd just like a few thoughts / comments on the subject<P>O-<P>------------------

I went for my first time last year. The anime panels were few, but the sales floor HUGE. If you've been to Anime North, it has similar panels, though Anime North is soooo much better. This one is more corprate, and the anime show is second in show space when compared to the Comic and Sci Fi sections.<P>If you had to chose between Anime North and CNAnime, Anime North all the way. But as for which one has the larger sales floor, that has to go to CNAnime, though this years Anime North had a fairly large sales floor. Also more contests with better prizes at CNAnime, since its more corprate.<P>Quattro<P><P>------------------

Uh, so when exactly will CN Anime be taking place? I know late August, I want to know what days.
BTW, who will let me sleep on their floor on the nights between days?

Uh, no. It doesn't say. I checked it out before posting. It says $40 CDN for 3 days. What three days aren't stated.

It *does* say. It says so on the big leegin' title graphic (in the lower-right corner, if I recall correctly). I can't verify this, because of leegin' Lynx. Just check it again and admit your folly. ;-)<P>JOSH.<P>------------------

I'm just curious on how many people here are actually going to CNAnime. It sure doesn't seem like many so far. We can't have an Avalon Beer Party if there isn't enough of us <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>Quattro<P>PS I'd let you stay at my house, but my mom might wonder "Dan, why's there a Beaver sleeping on the floor?" <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>------------------

I'm sure I could accomodate you again.<P>If you don't have a way to get around, depending on who else will be at my place, you could come along with me. And uhh, I'll try to get up earlier <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>I'm gonna ask some of my 'peeps' and see who'll be coming and who won't.<P>I'll let you know.<P>In the meantime, all of you check out my very own comic... NoRTH. I hope by now some of you have heard of it <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>------------------

Last year they were showing some good movies, but the viewing rooms were nowhere near large enough to accommodate the people who wanted to see them.
Ucchan, Usa-chan, and I ended up missing some good stuff because of that.

We'll be hitting Chinatown and a Dave and Busters while we're there, plus going for some well deserved sushi! B) Come join the fun! As Archmage would say, 'you know you want to'.

Oh, I'll be bringing Vampire Hunter D, as well as the first two volumes (four episodes) of Cowboy Bebop, subtitled.<P>Oh and Josh, yeah, you're right. August 24 - 26. BTW, why in Bob's name are you using Lynx?

Don't tell me you got rid of your car...<P>And the Greyhound should only be about $90 or so for a two-way, Ottawa to Toronto. And it's just $2 a ride on the TTC...<P>I certainly hope that you'll show up...

I dunno 'bout Josh, but sitting on a Greyhound for 5-7 hours (depending) doesn't seem like all that much fun to me. Trains are faster and much more comfy. Well worth the $20 price premium (for students).
