You guys going?
We’ve done 33 panels at Anime Boston since 2009, and it’s easily the best anime con in America as far as we can tell. It’s been a good run.
But, I think we’re going to skip a year. Maybe we’ll return in 2018. But I kind of need a break.
The main reason is the bag checks and security. It’s real bad. If you think PAX East has it bad, the Anime Boston situation is a hundred times worse. We’ve almost been late for our own panels. If we leave the convention center for any reason (e.g., lunch), we’re hesitant to go through it to get back in even if there are panels we want to see.
The last few years it’s been so bad that we didn’t even go in on Sunday unless we were forced to to run a panel.
They’re such a cloud over the event that I think I need a year off from dealing with it…
