It is nearly the beginning of May, which means the beginning of summer, which also means another summer of awesome anime conventions that fans will be attending to. But before the con season begins, there are the cons that are there to prep you up for the season and one of them is what I’ll be attending to this weekend and that’s Krakencon!
|Back when the first Krakencon in 2013 where the gaming section was just 4 TVs|
I remember Krakencon back when it started in the South San Francisco Conference Center in 2013 where it was just a small convention with panels and a big room with a dealer’s hall and artist alley. I also remember participating in the con’s first costume contest and I was just amazed at how well everyone’s cosplay was compared to mine. I would lose the contest but am still proud about particiating in it. Now years later, the convention has grown big. It has moved to a bigger location in the Oakland Convention Center and the attendance for the con grew as well.

It was just in 2013 that this con started and it’s just amazing to see how much it has improved over it’s current run. I’m for sure excited for this convention and am glad to provide you guys coverage for this convention. If you will be attending Krakencon, maybe you might see me. I’ll be cosplaying from the show, Monthly Girls’ Nozaki Kun, as Hori Masayuki. The convention begins today, hope to see you guys there!
