How many years have you gone?

Post by Fetch » Tue Apr 26, 2011 7:40 pm

2003, 2005-2011 8 years :)

Why didn't I go in 2004?
Because they sold out of passes. On my birthday. :(

Let's hope AB doesn't have to put a attendance cap on anytime soon.

I've gone every year since 2006. It's been very hard to pick which year was actually my favorite though, since they've all had their special moments. :)

I've been to and cosplayed at '09, '10, and '11, so three years now.

On a somewhat-related note, I'm glad the Merchandise Booth had pins left from past cons! I've wanted to try and get something each year, but I didn't even know about that booth until my second year.
I've been attending since AB 2009! You can find me on Twitter or Backloggery as TheNintendOtaku.

This year would make my 3rd. Ive been an anime/manga fan for quite sometime however i had no clue that a convention was so close to home (4hrs)Its funny (well to me anyway) how i found AB. I used to work for my daughters pediatrician and a patient happened to notice my hidden leaf village tattoo on my neck and he mentioned AB which was 2 weeks away. I went with my hubby and daughters(my mini cosplay army) for the first time in 2009 granted we only spent a few hours but it changed my life to know ppl just like me have a place to gather and dont have to hide my true self anymore. Im very grateful to that patient and to AB for making this fangirl scream with delight for the last 3 years! see you next year min'na!!

This was my 5th year. First went in 2006, couldn't in 2007 due to my work schedule, and from 2008 until the present my work schedule has been such that I've been able to attend. Next year will be the final year I can go until at least 2016 though.

I'm a silly Anime Boston attendee since 2007. I won't say I moved to Boston for the convention (It's all work, I swear!!) but it certainly didn't dissuade me from coming here.

Question: Can I count the 3 days I spent in Tokyo over Christmas 2009 as a con? I did go to Akihabara :) and Japan IS the home of anime. Pretty please? I would have been at AB had I not been teaching in Korea that year.

Been going since AB 2008 so this was my 4th year :) Def plan on going next year!

This talk of badges makes me want to find all mine...I only know where this year (still in my purse) and 2008 (in a scrapbook I did for my senior year of high school; it was my first con and I wanted to remember it) are. Not sure where 2009 and 2010 are.

[color:purple]9th year

And going to that first one was totally by accident! My school is located literally right across the street from the Park Plaza, and we were looking out the windows going "what the hell is going on out there?" So the prof let us leave to check it out and ended up getting passes. Best skipped class ever[/color] :D
