I nearly lost my mind last night when I found out that not only was Eva Exhibition coming to Houston, only 8 hours away from me, but that it was the first time it had ever been outside of Japan. I know I could just fly and get there in like an hour, but there's no way I can afford plane tickets. If I do go, it will be my first solo road trip since getting my license, my first convention ever, and the first time I would be staying somewhere by myself (there's no way I could drive there, attend, and drive back in one day). Do you think it's worth it?

To be fair, the Evangelion Sword Exhibit, which contains many of the same types of items (plus swords) traveled internationally, and was on display in Paris and Madrid in 2014.

Just wanted to chime in that an Evangelion art Exhibit has been on display outside of Japan.

Think the OP meant to say that this was the first time this particular exhibit had been outside of Japan. It will be at Anime Matsuri: http://www.animematsuri.com/8779/evange ... e-matsuri/

I say do whatever it takes to go. Round up some friends to go to Anime Matsuri with you to split driving duties. Someone I know drove from New York down to Anime Weekend Atlanta last year - he arrived on Saturday, was going to drive back on Sunday afternoon to be at work on Monday :cringe:). If you wanted to see the exhibit otherwise, you would need to fly to Japan, so what's an 8 hour drive?

Last year Matsuri had a Sailor Moon event (and implied more to come this year, in addition to bringing over this year's Eva Exhibit) but I personally can't support it due to numerous shady dealings and disturbing stories from Lolita fashion friends that have attended.

That said, if you think you'll have fun and most importantly stay safe, definitely enjoy yourself if you make the trip to H-town :thumbsup:

^The Evastore went to Anime Expo in LA last year, but I've been to the Evastore in Ikebukuro 2x now and I can't justify paying the markup, so did not end up getting anything. That said, it's a chance to check out their wares in person.

I thought about going to check out the exhibit, which would be the only solid draw for me at this point. Natsu Dagneel's seiyu is coming but otherwise I could care less about the con's guestlist.
