GIT HYPE? 1st time at SacAnime. What to expect?
« on: December 26, 2015, 08:10:42 PM »
Yo!

This is my first time attending SacAnime since moving up here from SoCal (going solo just to see what it's like). I used to attend Anime Expo in LA, which is huge (kind of getting too huge these days...) What I wanted to know is how does this con compare? How are the people there, friendly and or chill? Hows the night life? I've heard a lot about Fanime too, that it's a really personable con to go to and get along with people. Can any give me some perspective?

Thanks!

I'll fill you in on a couple things! I've been going to SacAnime ever since summer 2014 so it's been over a year for me. The convention itself is medium sized but it's growing to be a large con. Last SacAnime wasn't the best since the programming done poorly but we're hoping that it gets better this time around. The people here are really friendly and chill but I'l forewarn you of this , there has been a lot of harassment going around , especially during Summer Sac so please be aware of others and yourself. Otherwise , it's a really fun convention and the exhibitor room gets really crowded on Saturday too haha. I don't know much about the night life since I haven't really been apart of it but I will be this con. If you have any questions feel free to ask!! Hope this helped! - Kal

Thanks! Sounds like it's gonna be legit. The cosplay videos i've seen on youtube look pretty awesome too, so i'm hyped. Harassment? What kind? From locals or something? That's dumb...Should form an anti-harasment squad to keep an eye out for people like that. They're probably just jealous because everyone else is too legit, obviously lol.

Yeah , the people there are pretty awesome. Just the usual harassment I think from photographers and even a couple cosplayers as well. I don't know all the details but I had a couple people I know involved and it ain't fun. They're upgrading security and putting signs around reminding people that cosplay is not consent.

Its not up to par of the bigger conventions up here, IE Fanime but its getting there, wish the programming was 24/7 like Fanime's and wish their arcade was legit....otherwise i have gotten use to it as a hangout convention and meet alot of different and cool interesting friends. If youd like to meet up let me know...ill be having a white sign asking people to sign it....been coming to this convention since 2007

2007? That is a really long time my friend. That's when I started gong to AX. I heard that Sacanime started small back in the day, like a hotel lobby, is this true?

Yesss that is true. SA started in 2004. You usually have the " sac anime is better than any con " crowd which is annoying, might want to avoid those

Legit. Cosplaying anything besides holding the white sign man?
