I'm preparing for Kitsunekon in green bay WI it's not till july but the attendance rate always goes up every year, this year I'm debating on my cosplay though cause of right now I can go as either one of three characters, Kotetsu Kaburagi from tiger and bunny, Souma Haruto of course Kamen Rider Wizard, or Souji Tendo Kamen Rider Kabuto, both rider cosplays would be in their civilian attire, the selection at kitsunekon for anything toku is kinda limited but the convention is still growing, last year a couple of fellow rider cosplayers did a panel on tokusatsu and the attendance was well decent to say the least, the room was three quarters full

I don't know of any really good U.S. ones, but I'm going to my first convention soon too. Well, technically, I went to one with my father a long time ago, but it was mainly Star Trek focused, which was more his thing than mine. Anyway, I'm going to AnimeJapan in Tokyo in March. I'm really looking forward to it.

Yes, Anime Boston is in Boston. Specifically, at the Hynes Convention Center. I can link you the con website if you'd like.

I was thinking about going to Anime Boston, since I can probably meet some of the staff that's in the Northeast, but I don't want to plan for flying in March. Maybe next year.

They are bringing Wonder-Con back up to SF in September and they have several in the Sacramento area. Just letting you know since this is kind of specific.

I will add to the recommendations for Anime Central. Third largest (getting darn close to second largest) anime con in North America, and always a good time IMO. This will be my 10th year (8th year on staff), and this year I'm taking over running the tokusatsu photoshoot gathering on Saturday afternoon!

I also will be at Youmacon in early November. It's a bit smaller but very nice and always great guests.

Since I just moved out of Washington State, I am going to miss my yearly SakuraCon.
I need to save and try out the Atlanta Cons.
They are so fun to go to.

I'm thinking of going to Lexington Comic Con, March 11-13, because the last few years they have had so many Power Ranger related guests. This year they have all of the Time Force rangers! I went to Power Morphicon in 2007, but Lexington is much closer for me. If for some reason I can't make it to Lexington, Anime Milwaukee is closer still on that same weekend.
