It’s good to be able to have time to go to another anime convention. After missing the big 20th anniversary of Animethon last year, I was happy to be able to attend this year.
If you haven’t seen my previous posts on Animethon, here are some quick facts:
- It’s a 3-day convention held annually in Edmonton, Alberta.
- It’s the oldest anime convention in Canada that’s still going.
- It’s the largest anime convention in Western Canada.
One of the nice things about Animethon is that it’s probably the most over-looked anime convention by big companies, making it large while still maintaining a close-knit community feel. I think it’s largely due to Edmonton’s lack of global recognition compared to Calgary and Vancouver, but that’s not a discussion for this blog.
