Anime Overdose (San Francisco Animation Convention) took place August 4 - 6, 2006. With Otakon, Anime Iowa, Fandomonium, Costume College, and the Volks Tea Palos Verdes Tea Party happening at the same time, it was a busy weekend for those into costuming, anime, and other fandoms. No matter what part of the country you were from, there was something going on.

Traveling Valentine decided on AOD merely because it's a local event. The jump from March to August felt surreal to us. Normally, the March date fell on Tom's birthday weekend. This time, it fell on my birthday weekend. AOD still prooved to be a smoothly run convention with fun guests of honor and events that piqued everyone's interest. Though a small convention with over a thousand attendees, AOD was a very nice event.
