Aparently tokyopop has stopped the recons, i havent heard to much on it, but there was a small notice on the waterstones site with a recon in kent i think it was and it said ''last ever recon'' Dx

It's true, i'm afraid...

here's what it says on the facebook group for the Re:Cons

"A note to all members! As a member of Waterstone's staff, we received an email early January from Tokyopop informing us that they are no longer arranging events with our stores. No explaination, end of. I think they are saving themselves for bigger cons and events now they have more brand awareness.

Support your local Waterstone's! Help arrange an in-store event by seeing if any staff members are willing to still hold manga events!!! Camberely is in the (thought) process of arranging a harajuku/lolita themed night/tea party for sometime in June/July. Let me know if you're interested!"

I got an email (im signed up to tokyopop's site ) from Tokyopop saying something about Re:Con's to be held in Virgin/Zavvi stores. For obvious reasons that is no longer a possibility :'(

EDIT: They also said they would possibly be bigger and longer than previous ones. Maybe they'll continue if they can find new venueS??

That idea actually sounds a lot more horrifying :S eek.

But seriously I do wish them luck and I hope a new venue is found or it comes to a compromise. I've never been to a recon but lots of my friends who cannot attend cons go! *Fingers crossed it works out!*

This is indeed sad news for the shire people in my old country *yorkshire* these are some of the only places to cosplay in an officialy capacity oh well.

some got taken over by HMV - maybe they'd be able to go that route.

Just thought I'd do a good deed and post up some dates. Guess they're still running them but not that many! =[

April 16th - Waterstones Torquay
May 7th - Scunthorpe Library
June 5th - Waterstones Doncaster
July 2nd - Waterstones New George Street Plymouth

I suppose Scunthorpe and Doncaster are in driving distance of hull but only for a Re;Con doesnt seem worth it....

Scunny isn't too bad, they've been having library events quite a lot- my mum's cousin used to work there so I'm talking a good couple years ^^
As for cosplay in Hull, I've been asked to help facilitate ideas on events to Hull Central Library, but there are no promises or definites as of yet.
It's sad that Tokyopop have stopped them but it was awkward for the Waterstones staff here (they still want to continue some form of manga event though!) and I guess it didn't create the revenue that Tokyopop had hoped? I really enjoyed a couple of these events and would like to see them back. Hopefully a replacement can be found- it was the only real small-scale and fun event that could be attended in this region and I'm sure it's the same for all over the country!

Some good news - Neo Magazine reports that they're not stopped, but they've had to scale back! Keep checking those date listings folks.
