Editors Note: Here at the California Conventions Blog, we are always looking for people who share our passion for the convention culture that we live in, especially if it is an unique point of view that is new to most of us. Today is a hopefully a start to a new part of our convention reviews, titled "Community Reviews." These are reviews written by those who are not on the blog but are interested in telling stories and experiences. This is a way for these people to get a foot in their door, like all of us who started out reviewing conventions and telling stories & experiences because we wanted to share it with the world.

Our first ever community review comes from Ralph Jeriko Serranilla, bringing us an expeience that we've been wanting to write about for years: a permier fan.


Anime Expo. The biggest anime convention in North America held on the July 4th weekend. Four (now five!) days dedicated to everything anime, manga, video games, and almost anything peripherally related (I saw you Games of Thrones cosplayers!).

Nate Reports: Anime Expo 2016 Part 1 (Day 0-2)

Next con on the lineup is Anime Expo 2016, where it will be my 3rd time attending the biggest Anime convention in Los Angeles. Last year, I wasn't able to go as press so I had to go as an attendee to this big event and it was still pretty fun. This time around, I've gotten the pass and I was hoping for something better than the last time I got Press back in 2013. During that year, there was so many issues with me and LACC staff or AX staff back then that I was just really confused about what was going on, I mean I didn't even go to many of the things at that AX because of restrictions even if we were staff. Now I'm hoping this time around, there will be more leniency towards us and that we can actually have access to things. Nonetheless, I just hope for a very fun Anime Expo this year!

Anime Expo 2016: Tally's Review

Anime Expo is one of the biggest conventions in the United States, and one of the more well-known anime conventions as well. The convention was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, as it has been for the past few years now. It always goes on during Fourth of July weekend, so this was no exception.

This year, as a member of this blog, a few associates and I were welcomed back as member of press. Now, in the past, I have written some not so nice reviews about this particular convention and have been harassed by a former AX DJ and unfortunately, had to block him on Facebook. I pray that a similar situation does not happen again after this review goes up.
