This year's New York Comic Con drew some 133,000 attendees, yet only 9 percent of its content was devoted to anime and manga.
Comic con isn't a total anime con..it's like a mish mosh of everything geek lol. Otakon is a anime con. Went to it for the 1st time August. It was freaking awesome.
It's certainly lost a great deal of its mass-appeal... the bubble, as so often happens, burst. But its cachet? Anime never had any cachet to begin with. This is why it's important to know what words mean.
