I just wanted to say thanks to slowhand for posts. Animenext been con I been going to for over decade. Meant a lot to me and this year looking like my last. Due to costs of altantic city hotels and safety concerns. I know its not going to be problem and otakon deals with sort similar issues location. For myself and family maybe not a good idea to worry them even more where I am going for 4 days a year.
