This years guests included voice actors David Sobolov, Ellyn Stern, Kirk Thornton, Dani Chambers, and Richard Epcar. If guests aren’t your thing they also played host to an artist alley and vendor hall where you could find almost anything that would help complete your anime collection.

Rate the Con

Our new thing for 2024 is to ask our readers to take a poll on some basic components of the con. We want to know how you rate the parking, the vendors and the food. The poll closes after 30 days and we will use this as a baseline for next years convention. We plan to keep a rating system set up for many of the conventions.


How Was the Food?
(Availability, Cost and Variety in the area)


How Was the Parking?
(Availability, Ease, and Cost)


How Were the Vendors?
(Variety and Quality)

We realize that these don’t apply to all conventions, so if they don’t apply to your con, give them a 5 star.

**Later additions to the rating systems will include things such as guests and ticket prices**
