Cancellations

Despite confirmed dates for 2004, Big Apple Anime Fest announced on its web site that it would skip its event in 2004 due to the Republican National Convention, which was to be held in New York City over Labor Day weekend. The following year, John O'Donnell of Central Park Media, one of the companies supporting Big Apple Anime Fest, informed AnimeCons.com that he was, "unaware of any plans for BAAF 2005 at this time." The convention has not been held since and it is uncertain if there are any plans to revive it.

Attendance counting

Big Apple Anime Fest's metric for counting attendance differed from those typically used by other anime conventions.
