I'm back in town. I'll try to catch up on my flist tomorrow.

In the meantime, I believe I've finally settled the "Anime Boston or Anime North?" dilemma that's been plaguing me pretty much ever since the dates for 2009 were announced.

I think I'm growing away from anime fandom. I have a pile of unwatched anime I don't feel much of a desire to get through, and the genre as a whole doesn't interest me as much anymore. :\ It's sad, but tastes change. I'm not going anywhere; there are plenty of other things to get fannish about. dotmoon.net is multi-fandom, and ASMR is a special project I'm not about to drop, as is the Sailormoon fandom itself to some extent. So no worries. And heck, maybe that'll free up the focus I need to write more original fiction. :)

Anyway, I think 2009 is going to be my last big year for anime conventions. I still want to go to more cons for other forms of media, but after this year I'll have been to all the anime cons I really wanted to sample except Katsucon. Starting next year I'll probably be cutting way down on the anime events.

So I was talking about all this with [livejournal.com profile] tmchiba, and I've decided to make Anime Boston 2010 my big last blast anime con. AB is a top-quality event, and it'll be a good one to go out on. After that, if I go to an anime con, I'll probably be one of those people who just hangs out in the hotel with their friends. It wasn't too long ago that I thought I'd never understand that kind of behavior, haha. Funny how that works out. But the best reason to go to a con is to spend time with friends, right? :)

The point is, if I'm focusing on Anime Boston 2010 as a special trip, I'll feel a lot less guilty about missing it this year. So yeah, I've decided on Anime North as the con I'll be traveling to this Memorial Day weekend. Finally, a plan, and one I'm not miserable about. I'm already looking forward to seeing everyone in Toronto. ^_^

So now I finally have my convention schedule for 2009 fully worked out, barring something else coming up on a free weekend.

Ohayocon: 1/30-2/1
Anime Detour: 4/3-4/5
No Brand Con: 4/24-4/26
Anime North: 5/22-5/24 (Ooh hey, the new website looks great!)
CONvergence: 7/2-7/5
AnimeIowa: 8/14-8/16
Discworld Con: 9/4-9/7

I haven't made concrete plans for some of these, but if all goes well, there they are. Anyone on my flist planning on going to any of these? :)

I'll still be sad to miss everyone at Anime Boston, but I'll see you there in 2010.
