|My first visit to FanimeCon was a major achievement. I really don't consider myself as much of an anime fan, so
travelling more than 300 miles to get to an anime convention seems like a really crazy idea. By far, this was the
costliest trip I've ever taken for a convention. I could have used that money for other things, but this trip shows
how much I love doing what I do and how much I'm willing to do for my friends in the anime community. For me,
conventions are about being with your friends and having a good time. I probably would not have made the trip
without encouragement from my friends.
I really enjoyed this convention. I loved the programming and the people. It's a big convention, but not very
stressful. Sure, there were problems, mainly with schedules, but it didn't bother me too much. I didn't get as
many photos as I would have liked, but I don't really see that as a big problem. I suppose the Northern California
crowd will just have to get used to seeing me around. After years of sticking with Southern California events, a lot
of the Los Angeles area fans are used to working with me and are quite comfortable with me. Someday, maybe
Northern California will be the same. I really would like to return next year.
It's a nice feeling to know that my biggest convention for the year is behind me, unless Pacific Media Expo
somehow manages to grow astronomically. The rest of the year should be a piece of cake. The next stop is
Go to Naruto Con.
Go directly to Naruto Con.
Do not pass Anime Expo.
Do not collect $200.
