Well of the three mentioned, I am only attending the third one. =0

It is like a traveling time of only 25 minutes from my house by public transport. And probably lesser than 15 minutes if I take my friend's car there. Much of the features aren't disclosed yet after I visited the site except for the musical performances, the maid cafe and the talk given by Danny Choo.

Other than that, there shouldn't be any other things that would catch my attention.

I'm going to NYAF to see Cencoroll. They better confirm a date soon or I'm not going. Getting from Florida to New York is quite a trip.

Uk manga and anime fans should be sure to attend London Expo in October. It's looking to be awesome as usual and is a great way for forumgoers to meet each other!

I myself will be there hoarding trinkets and rarities
