A UK Dragon Ball Convention

Post by Dragon Ball Ireland » Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:43 am

So I noticed on Twitter SaiyaCon are discussing the possibility of a Dragon Ball convention happening in 2019 or 2020 and thought I'd start this thread to spread the word.

If this goes ahead would anyone here from the UK or Ireland be interested in attending?

I would certainly look forward to it as it would be a good weekend for those of us who couldn't afford to go to Kamehacon.

If Masako or Kelamis miraculously attend this convention then I might visit it.

I hope that this happens and Scott McNeil comes. It'd be the best.
Complain to Funimation about the crappy 30th anniversary sets:

As it stands, the next time they release the show, they'll trot out the same excuses they made for why they made the 30th anniversary sets suck. Let's prevent that. Make your voice heard. It'll barely take you a minute or two to send an email, and it could make all the difference in the world. Worst case scenario, you wasted about as much time as you spent reading this message, but you spent it in an effort to improve a crappy situation.

I'm not really a convention type of person but I would definitely come.

Same here, I'm not a big anime guy and most people I've met at general anime conventions are way more knowledgeable than I am. A Dragon Ball convention though is right up my alley.

Wouldn't count on Nozawa or McNeil coming, but either would be awesome. Kelamis is a possibility as he was at DigiCon this year.

Definitely think Team Four Star and Ajay would be good contenders to get the show up and running with panels as they are from the UK.

I also heard Geekdom say in a recent stream he may be coming to the UK next year, so who knows maybe he's in talks. I'd certainly attend any panels he may get to do.

Turns out its going to be in Manchester from August 23rd-25th.

Also worth noting this will be the UK KamehaCon, SaiyaCon will apparently be a different convention.

I'll more than likely go to KamehaCon UK, but may go to both if I can find the cash.
