Otakon 2017 — A Capital Idea

I wouldn’t really think a convention like Otakon would have to go through “growing pains,” as it’s been around for over 20 years now. But that’s the situation we find ourselves in going forward. This was the first year of Otakon’s new/temporary home in Washington, DC, until the situation is ironed out with Baltimore. They’ve […]

AnimeNEXT 2017 — That’s a Really Nice Convention You’ve Got There…

I’m fairly certain my plans for a CasinoCon—or, rather, any convention that I create, book, and give as a gift to the world—may never really come to fruition.

Zenkaikon 2017 — Maple Bacon is Love, Maple Bacon is Life

But then again, my opinion is probably colored by the pop culture depiction of Pennsylvania Dutch country, so maybe I’m not […]

A Yankee in Texas: Anime Matsuri 2017 Report

For the last two or three years, I have always said that you should travel outside of your usual convention area.  I say that because you will expand your convention experience and culture.  Last year was NDK, the year prior was Denver Comic Con.  Coming down to Houston, Texas for Anime Matsuri wasn’t any different.  […]
