long term planning

atomx mentioned to me a few days ago that he was going to be going to Anime Weekend Atlanta because it is traditionally a hotspot for the AMV scene that he's a part of.

Out of curiosity, I took a look at the site for the con to see what was up. I really wasn't planning on doing any other anime cons this year because my interest in anime is relatively limited. I went to ACen chiefly for the social experience because the biggest group of people I knew would be there over any other con.

But when I took a look at the AWA site, I saw that Mari Iijima is slated to be one of the guests. She played one of the lead roles in Macross, the only anime series I've actually seen in its entirety and really know anything about. Suddenly, my interest in attending this con was piqued.

So now I guess I just have to make a decision. I've got plenty of time though. The con is not until September and I can pre-register all the way through July.
