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
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
