Con Report: MegaCon 2013

Posted April 15, 2013 by Kenneth Davis

Arriving a little later than usual I ended up parking a bit further from the convention than last year. Fortunately, there was a nice and free shuttle bus that took me from where I parked to the convention center. It felt kind of like being a packed in a sardine can, but being the last […]

MetroCon 2012: The Convention Report

Posted July 13, 2012 by Kenneth Davis

After having a great time at last year’s MetroCon I wasn’t sure what to expect. MetroCon 2011 provided many events and was one of the best cons I had attended in awhile. As my third outing and the con’s 10th year it’s probably the convention I looked forward to most this year, so how did […]

MegaCon 2012 Review

Posted March 8, 2012 by Kenneth Davis

I have been to just about every major anime-related convention in Florida over the past 5 years. Some have grown strong, remain stagnant, or defunct. MegaCon, which is a comic and scifi convention, is known as the largest convention in Florida with estimated numbers hitting above 20,000, and while it is not necessarily an anime […]

FAN:Dom Con Year 2 Review

Posted January 4, 2012 by Kenneth Davis

As I had stated once, it appears new cons are popping up all the time lately. College-based conventions are also no exception. FAN:Dom Con would mark the fourth college based convention I have attended. There was MomoCon which was pretty fun, but felt overly crowded. Kaji-Con had a good start, but was lacking attendance. Then […]

Review of EXP CON IV

Posted November 27, 2011 by Kenneth Davis

I’ve debated whether EXP or AWA would make my favorite con of the year. Not so much in terms of what a con has to offer, but personal enjoyment alone. Having grown tiresome of AWA, my expectations were pretty high. Sure EXP does not have as much to offer in comparison to AWA or Metro, […]

Anime Festival Orlando 2011: Review and Pictorial

Anime Festival Orlando has been a con I’ve been putting off for some time. Having been to every major Florida con except AFO, I felt some sort of obligation to go at least once.

MetroCon IX Pictorial & Review

Posted July 17, 2011 by Kenneth Davis

MetroCon has received quite a bit of criticism this year and would be best described as a convention with a lot to offer or for some a convention that leaves something to be desired. Here’s a little history: MetroCon has earned the title of the largest anime based convention in Florida. It was a title […]

Florida Anime Experience 2011 Pictorial and Review

When I planned on going to Florida Anime Experience, my expectations were rather mixed considering this was technically their first outing. However, their website does mention that this event is ran by a collaboration of Wasabi Anime, Florida Super Con, and former JACON staff. It was safe to assume there would be some experience backing […]

EXP Con 2010 Review & Pictorial

Posted November 27, 2010 by Kenneth Davis

Depending on who you are, the best way for me to describe EXP Con is that it doesn’t offer much, while at the same time having a lot to appreciate. First off, I must applaud the people of EXP Con for promoting this convention very well. From Facebook to message boards to passing flyers at […]
