Comic-Con International News

Comic-Con International is a anime/manga concept
| |
This years convention was pretty nice. There were lots of booths and displays, all nicely spaced out. Also lots of panels and screens making it worth to come to these things. The only problems I had were the crowds that filled most of the conventions where people were lining up for demos, panels, and autographs. Also some booth were pretty unimpressive (Animenewsnetwork one with only a HDTV showing My sister can't be this cute stream demo and two posters to the side -_-) and some I question there reason to be here (Animal planet?). Overall it was fun to be there and hang with other people with the same interest.
