Living in San Diego, I must say that seeing so many from all over the world really feels exciting to me!

I wish I lived in San Diego. No, wait, I wish America wasn't so far away and the flights didn't take so long. Like maybe a 3 hour flight instead of 13 hours or more.

Lol! IKR! ;D
I've got a 17hr journey with connecting flights (also never done connecting flights either).  :-[

I had a connecting flight in Philadelphia last year. I think we spent about 5 hours in that airport. From leaving my house in the morning to arriving in SD in the evening I think 24 hours had past. Thanks, 9 hour time difference.) If I go alone I'm not looking forward to waiting in airports.

Wow, that's a real labour of love!  If I were you' I'd bring loads of tech.  I've got a 3.5hr wait at Newark before flying out to San Diego.  I'm sure it'll all be totally worth it. ^-^

2014 was the first time I went as well. And we didn't even have badges. From where are you in France? :)

Paris  :)

Do you attend the Paris Comic Con? I have heard that it's even bigger than SDCC! I would love to go some day, but it's not in the cards yet.

Well it's quite different, because on one side you have the Japan Expo which is huge (but dedicated to manga which is not really my thing) and the Paris Comic Con which up until last year was a really small event (taking place at the same time and convention center than the Japan Expo).
This year they will be separated from the Japan Expo - but for now, SDCC is waaaaayyyy bigger (again, not considering the Japan Expo attendance).

And I don't believe they will ever get the level of involvment that SDCC gets from movie studios for example.

Wow, that's very interesting to hear. The information I had seen before said that Paris was the second biggest comic con in the world, after Tokyo. You certainly give a different perspective!

If you like/love mangas, animes and everything Japanese, Japan Expo is definitely worth the trip (from what I heard, I have actually never been).
But for now, the Comic Con part is probably 5% of what SDCC is.

I'm coming from Northern California. A city called, Roseville, just a couple miles north of Sacramento.
We are the people our parents warned us about.

Welcome, Tarishamilitia and Tag177! I've never been to Oaklahoma, but I've been to Roseville many times (usually driving up to Tahoe and back).
