The people behind Cape Comic Con have added two new types of cons to their roster this year: Cape Anime Con, and Cape Fear Con – which is next month.
While I’ve been to cons that have had voiice actors from animes, or merchandise from various anime, I have never been to an anime specific con. But I enjoy anime, and my nieces are getting into it a lot as well, so I figured this would be a great way to test the waters.
To see my video of the event, click here.
While both nieces were excited, one was particularly decked out haha.
I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect crowd level / vendor wise, etc. But we came with a mission: have fun. And we definitely did.
Much like my beloved comic cons, there was a comforting feeling of being among friends, though you were in a room of strangers.
My nieces experienced this as well, especially the younger one. She was so excited to see all of the people cosplaying her favorite anime and wearing shirts with her favorite characters.
There were two voice actors there, both of which we wanted for our My Hero Academia poster, but we settled on E. Jason Liebrecht- who voices Dabi of the Vanguard Action Squad – to get us started on what will hopefully someday be a poster full of My Hero Academia voice actors. FYI – he’s ridiculously nice.
My only other purchase was a plushie: Monokuma from Danganronpa. Because I just love that stupid bear so much haha.
I think the most important thing is the memories I got to make with my nieces, this weekend.
I’ll be attending Cape Fear Con next month, and I’m super excited for a repeat experience, but with more spooky goodness.
Have you been to an anime con before?
