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.
