I will not be going to AoD this year. First time skipping after four years of consecutive attendence. I’m getting to the point where con experiences all start to feel same-ish, with the same lack of things for me to do.
I will, however, turn up for Cherry Blossom Festival as usual, and hopefully Fanime and AX. Touhoucon is on my bucket list, and MAGFest is currently my "dream" convention.
I’m starting to shift more towards fandom-specific and gaming cons, basically. Me being a "game fan first and anime fan second" is part of why small, general-interest cons don’t really have that much charm for me these days.
