There is quite a few of us in the south west, including me in Bath and Ilpala in the 'nam (Chippenham to most of you) and Bristol, Plymouth, Southampton have healthy anime fandom scenes. I know a number of Ilpala's and my local anime club don't do Expo as London is quite far.

Whether it heads to Cornwall, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Cardiff, or wherever I'm pretty sure I can use it as an excuse to see friends :P

Wow something around Manchester or Liverpool would be really cool! Me and my friends live in Warrington which is only a short train ride/drive from either of the cities XD

Of course one in Warrington would be even better but i guess major cities attract more people ^^

where abouts are u from in west midlands

its basically the same for me cause west midlands is where many ppl can get to easily



I live in Walsall

Also i agree with you on this. Plus the NEC is only a membrobilia show. Not many anime people go to it. Actually i wouldn't even class it as an anime event.

Ouu you'll have to get in touch ^_^

The West Midlands is quite big and not everyone can get to Telford or Birmingham NEC even though it is accessable by train.

It would be cool to see loads more Expo's in England like America.

I persoanlly think manchester would be a very good place to hold an event (and not just because I can get their easily XD)

There are such a large number of attendees in and around the manchester area, and more who wish they could get down to london twice a year, but can't for whatever reason.

I also believe that, outside of london, it's the most densly populated area of the country? I may be wrong, but it seems like the more people there are in the area, the more attendees you'll get.

You guys have got to move further north than Telford!

I've only been to one and from what i saw i'd have to agree.There were probably 2 main animé shops there.It's mainly for collectors of other things.

Although it would be nice our country isn't that big.We take a quick train or car ride.The most is takes is 9 hours and that's people coming from Scotland.The reason America have so many is because you have to fly to some of these places as they are so far away.

I have already had a word, and it might happen in Norwich if those of us in the area can get the interest racked up.
I've already made myself an advocate for the region, but if anyone else can give me a hand I'd be grateful.


Norwich would be awesome :) Quite a few of my friends and I live nearby, so that would be great.

Hi,

Just thought I'd e-mail you seeing as you're interested in the Norwich area (and live in East Anglia).
Did you sign the petition? If not, would you and your like-minded friends like to?
The link is - http://www.gopetition.co.uk/online/29479.html

There's also my website we need to get activity buzzing on - http://animedia-east.webs.com
It's not just for the roadshow either, it's for anyone and everyone in East Anglia who's into this sort of thing,
and anyone else outside it who'd be interested and likely to attend an event here too,

Raye-chan is in the middle of designing a logo for AniMedia East already.
Good to hear from you.

I live in southampton and although I know hardly anyone personally, I do know a good couple of handfuls of people who would be interested in an event being held somewhere in Hampshire (or nearby) It's hella' expensive to travel to London all the time. xD

I'd personally like to see this come up to Scotland (Edinburgh would be fine) too and not just an event "in the north" that's in Newcastle. Or even multiple places in Scotland for those of us who are not centralised in Glasgow.
