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.
