The 12 Types of Anime Congoers by HinoNeko The 12 Types of Anime Congoers by HinoNeko
Those of you who've been to an anime convention are probably very familiar with these people already. To those of you who have yet to visit an anime convention . . . well, this is what you have to look forward to!

One of these "characters" is based on a real, specific person . . . I won't tell you which one, but if you've been to Ikkicon/Ushicon you might be able to figure it out.

As for me, I'd say I'm most like The Fangirl . . . though with Chouji and Shikamaru, rather than Kenshin. x3

(My choice of using Kenshin for The Fangirl, buy the way, was just a pop-into-my-head decision. It could just as easily been Duo or Yuki or anybody else.)

i sorta can see that aspect of the artist on myself (except for the smoking/underage hitting on/fav. anime); gotta embrace who you are, even if people will hate you for it....

My boyfriend is more of "The Gamer" I'm not sure if he likes/watches anime.

I think I'm more of "The Fangirl",I never seen Kenshin so I would be the one who would buy "Shugo Chara","Special A","Lcordo d passo","Black Butler" merchandise.

You should've mentioned the 'first timer' who either runs around, shouting out obvious facts such as who a person is cosplaying and what anime they're from... Because /that/ would be me. Caught up in the excitement and just- *falls*

Yeah I'd be mostly Bystander, I do watch some anime but I've never cared enough about it to attend a con. As for what I'd wear, basically my usual outfit, sure I'd stick out like a sore thumb but I don't care nearly enough about anime to cosplay.

...honestly there are two more in my opinion, both parents (based from my own parents);

The "cool" mom; accepts her childs interest in anime and such, wears a costume of ms.pak-man, and is rarely less then ten feet from her child. Warning; do not let her near furries, she dosen't know what they are, and will ask.

The unsetteled father; attends the convention with his child, pretending to be interested in the rambalings of other attendies, may "hang around" in the game room. Warning; Do NOT, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE allow him near "sailor moon" cosplayers, he will not understand and possible leave.

I'm probably gamer/fangirl. I've never been to a con (even though there's a small local one) and don't think I ever will. I'm too shy to cosplay and would feel weird for not doing so either, besides I wouldn't know who to go as lol xD
