Before anyone makes the AVCON=Adults Video convention comment, I would like to make it clear that it stands for Anime and Video Games Convention.
Now, it’s been a week since AVCON, and I must say that I really enjoyed it. This was the first Anime convention I’ve ever been to, and I wasn’t really expecting anything. So maybe I was impressed at the convention due to my low expectations.
I don’t know what other conventions are like, so I can’t really compare, but every moment of it was exciting. Things kicked off on the Friday night with an opening ceremony, followed by the screening of the third Evangelion movie (subbed, thank god).
There were some guests there at the con, but I’ve never heard of them, so I won’t really say much. We had Spike Spencer, Jessica Nigri and Chris Cason.
One thing I was slightly disappointed about was the lack of things they had at the stalls. They sold manga, anime DVDs and BRs, but I didn’t see any light novels. Not a single copy. But oh well, no one likes to read LNs I suppose.
Now, the highlight of AVCON was the afterparty. The afterparty was brilliant. I met some really cool people such as the product manager at Madman AU and some bunch of people who ran AVCON. Who doesn’t love a good drink after a weekend of anime-related fun, right?
Anyway, that’s it for my write up (if this can be called that) and I’ll definitely go again next year. And just a shout out to Dazza and Kirra, whom I hung around with at the con. Kirra won the Volunteer of the Year, so congrats to her as well. Dazza is an Anime Reviewing guy YouTube, so check out his channel or something.
