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.

Tally's Report: Akiba Fest 2016

Good evening, dear readers. It is time again for a special event review. The event in question is none other than Akiba Fest.

Akiba Fest was held by Aniplex October 15-16 in Little Tokyo, CA. Unfortunately, I was only able to attend the sixteenth. So, please forgive me for missing the first day of the event. However, I observed the event and its attendees for that day. The following written below is my review for the event.

dlvr.it Post Test #2


It's sad how two of the California Convention Blog's staples are closing this year: twitterfeed, and the used-to-used to be known as the Radisson Hotel.
