Pump it Up tournament?

Anime Los Angeles 2017: Tally's Review

Anime Los Angeles is one of California's best conventions, starting January 26th for day zero, if anyone counts day zero, and ending the 29th. The previous year, ALA had a new chairman. Mr. Alec Orrock worked under the chairman, until 2016 when the (former) chairman stepped down. With the convention moving from Los Angeles two years ago to Ontario, California, convention attendees had hoped for a new direction for the convention, and while last year's convention had a few issues, those issues were fixed this year. Though, there may have been some behind the scenes issues that were fixed temporarily, but I will not go into that.

10 Years of the California Conventions Blog, Part 1 - FanimeCon 2007, Part 1


The old fountains at the San Jose Convention Center. Taken in 2008 because there were no photos from 2007.
2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of the California Conventions Blog, although when my idea of convention reporting came around it was just me and a couple of people that I knew from my local community college that were organizing a trip to San Jose to this convention known as FanimeCon. Back then, the blog I started had my name on it because it was my experiences, my story that I wanted to share about the things I saw, touched, felt, and ate throughout a given convention weekend.

To start off this celebration of a long journey, we begin where it all started ten years ago.
