From August 29-31, the Big Apple Anime Fest will be in the Times Square area.
The major downside: wading through Cosplayers on my way home from work on those days.
Then again, it might not be all bad.
(Disclaimer: I couldn't find any really horrible examples of cosplayer images online, but my dsl line's been acting up since I got back and I didn't feel like spending a long time searching.)
(In other news, there's a Fox 5 news reporter with the first name Richard, and another reporter said something along the lines of "Back to you, Dick." If I was a reporter with the first name of Richard, anytime anyone called me Dick on the air I'd knock one of their teeth out.)
Update: D'oh, I'm an idiot. AXNY was 2002 only, and I was apparently not observant enough to realize that. So strike that, it's not nearly as orgasmarific for anime fans as I originally thought. Big Apple's still going on, though, so hopefully that won't suck too badly.
Update 2: Sigh, due to some errant referrer checking, apparently, some of the images I linked to were broken. They're fixed now, I think. (I hope.)
