Are Anime Conventions Worth It?
Anime conventions are a great way to meet others in your fandom or online communities safely in real life, find exclusive merch often difficult to procure outside of Japan, and foster your creative sewing skills by cosplaying. Conventions bring about a sense of safety for those who attend and don’t often get a chance to indulge on their nerdy hobbies with like-minded individuals.
Anime Cons have something for everyone: whether it be cosplay, Asian snacks, JRPG or tabletop card games, traditional comic books, doujinshi, fanzines, manga, Japanese anime shows, vtuber shenanigans, or even visiting Artist Alley – it would be worth your time to attend a local con one weekend to have some fun!
