Largest anime convention on the East Coast of the USA. Known for its annual expansion to engulf the entire Baltimore City Convention Center. Also known for batshit crazy lines and the large volume of cosplay
ers and other curious types who invade the city and amuse and/or terrify residents and eat all the food at the nearest fast food joints.
Lasts three days in July or August and is usually followed up by exhausted and giddy blog posts. Notable events at the 'kon are the anime music videos, the masquerade, the rave, and in recent years concerts held by Japanese musicians such as L'Arc~en~Ciel.
Otaku A: OMG did you see the line for the Laruku concert? It wrapped around entire city blocks!
Otaku B: No I didn't see it... I was IN IT. >:O
