What better way to celebrate your anime fandom than by attending an anime convention? It's the one place where you can surround yourself with people that know what you're into and love you for it! Being able to dive into a group of people where you're accepted no matter what is just an awesome feeling. Plus, while you're there, you get to nerd out on all the anime you want!
I've been noticing an uptick in anime conventions lately. It seems like they're popping up all over the place. Some are bigger than others, but it's the spirit of the conventions themselves that really matters. It doesn't matter if a hundred or ten thousand people show up. As long as anime fans get together and share what they love, it's a good time.
I've only ever been to one anime convention in my time, and it wasn't even full-on anime. I honestly forget the name of the event, but it was a mix of anime and comics. Still, what I saw at the show was an absolute blast, but that was years ago. It's very clear to me that I need to get back into the convention scene and attend on of the many expos taking place.
Have you been to an anime convention? Please, let us know what shows you attended and how they were! Maybe you haven't gone to a show yet, but you're absolutely dying to. Let us know which one you want to attend, and how you plan on making sure you get there this year!
