You forgot Fanime again. Clockwork Alchemy is a defacto part of Fanime, not a completely separate entity.

We didn't forget Fanime. We stopped listing them several years ago. The fact that Clockwork Alchemy is a part of FanimeCon is why we cannot fairly include FanimeCon on the list. It was explained in our Ten Largest North American Anime Conventions of 2014 article. rth_American_Anime_Co...

  • That article Said:
Also no longer on the list for the first time since we've been tracking the ten largest anime cons is FanimeCon. The San Jose, California convention is not eligible to be on the list because it shared registrations with a steampunk event called Clockwork Alchemy. Since there is no way to distinguish the people attending the anime event from the people attending the steampunk event, it would not be fair to include it in the above list. A similar situation arose in 2010 when New York Anime Festival merged with New York Comic Con and we could therefore no longer include New York Anime Festival on the list.
