Matthew's FanimeCon 2018 Report: Part 6 - Day Four & Epilogue

Ray reports: Fanime 2018

I've been attending Fanime every year since 2006, so at this point I'm pretty much "worn in" to the experience and you can get a good idea of what it's like from my Fanime reports of previous years.

That said, like other conventions it's always changing with every year; a lot of neat things come and go, so I'll focus primarily on what makes this year different from past years.

Anime Los Angeles 2018: Tally's Report

First and foremost, I wish to apologize for the late entry of this report. I have recently started a new job, so most of my time has been taken to work, and nothing else. So, again, I do apologize for this late entry.

Now, before I actually get into this review, please do know that I have every ounce of respect for those who run conventions. More so, the volunteers who dedicate their convention time to making the convention a success.
What will be written below is my personal opinion, my view on the convention, and I am aware that others may not share my view. You may take my words any which way you'd like.

Nate's Report: Fanime 2017

Well it has been quite a while since my last report in Sakuracon 2017. Well actually that was just a month ago that Sakuracon happened. And now it's the month of May and the beginning of the convention season. The big conventions are happening all over the country and it's the perfect time to attend since mostly everyone is free from school. And it all begins here in the Bay Area in the heart of San Jose. Yes, its that time of year again. Welcome to Fanimecon 2017! This will be my 8th year in attendance and hoping for another awesome year at my local con!

Ray Reports: Fanime(Con) 2017

FanimeCon, as those reading this blog may already know, is the largest anime-focused convention in Northern California, held annually on Memorial Day Weekend at the San Jose Convention Center.

Its longstanding gimmick has been its mantra of "By Fans, For Fans," with minimal industry presence compared to other conventions of similar attendance size such as Sakura-Con, ACen, and Anime Boston. Can this convention continue to really thrive the way it does in its current state, especially for longtime customers like myself? To give an honest answer: Maybe. Maybe not.
