In the same way, Clockwork Alchemy (secondary) became part of the main event (Fanime). As such, CA wouldn't be counted separately, but Fanime should still be counted as an anime convention because the primary focus on the entire event is anime.
"Primary" and "Secondary" are irrelevant. Let's say you've got a convention that's 49% steampunk and 51% anime. Should that use the combined attendance to get it ranked in the list of largest anime conventions? Obviously not and that's wouldn't be fair to the others. That's why Fanime is disqualified. Even if Clockwork Alchemy can only take credit for 5% of the total attendance, that's a 5% bonus that makes it unfair to other cons in the list.
Clockwork Alchemy is a de facto part of Fanime, not a completely separate entity. The panels and attendees crossover, but the primary focus is on anime. Should all other anime conventions that have steampunk-related panels, or where cosplayers dress up in steampunk outfits, also be disqualified from the list?
If they're sharing admission with a steampunk convention that is so distinct that they're held at completely separate venues? YES, ABSOLUTELY!
