Great Small Con
Jul. 2019
I've only ever been to big conventions, but this was a breath of fresh air. While no major cosplayers were there, lots of industry guests still made appearances and all the games were free! The market was great and I still got to see a lot of amazing cosplayers. If you want a first con or a small con to relax at, this is the one for you.

Animangausa 2019
Aug. 2019 • Family
Animangausa was a fairly good con well worth the money and good price range. would totally recommend to expand the con more. Probably bring more food vendors aince there wasn't a variety and more con security since it is easy to sneak in without a badge.

the beginning of a journey
Apr. 2019 • Family
I really liked going to animanga because it was such a fun experience. It got me to meet new people like the artists and cosplayers. I was able to get more art books so I can do more with my art. I was able to meet with some of the artists and get to know them a little bit more and ask them questions. They told me about their own art styles and what they are comfortable with drawing, some of the software they use, and even told me that I could do my own art booth and they told me where I can go print my art. I liked playing video games that other people were playing, I was a little bit sad when i was not able to join the super smash bros tournament but, at least I got to play with two other people

It has potential

Fun weekend in a smaller convention. I can see this becoming bigger in the future. The panels were solid, the game selections was good and the vendors were great. To improve would mean to get bigger, the space was small which was beneficial but also a detriment. Wish it was two sections/buildings one for panels and the other for the artist alley/vendors hall and itasha display. I believe in this con, be better than the others. Do it right and dont lose your way.

Pretty good local convention
Aug. 2019 • Friends
For a small local convention, it's pretty fun and lots of cosplayers show up. Decent selection of vendors and activities to do. There are quite a lot of food and beverage options (including alcohol) sold at the venue but it's pricey as you would expect. Parking gets a bit crowded throughout the day so I'd recommend showing up earlier if you can.

I took my son who is into anime, everybody was very friendly and polite. You see he suffers from Autism and yet everybody made him feel right at home. Thank you all.

Amazing! Animanga 2019
Jul. 2019 • Business
For me, I actually attended Animanga 2019 as an Artist Alley vendor, not as an attendee. But even still, it was an amazing experience all around! They were very helpful with vendors from badge pickup all the way to cleanup and tear-down on the last day!!! I did get to walk around the convention hall as an "attendee" while I was taking a break from selling at my Artist Alley table, and it was just amazing to see all of the available booths and activities there were! And my favourite part was the variety of vendors and Artists Alley artists that were accepted and able to show!!! My one thing that I had a little bit of trouble with was with parking, but that is a reflection of the Pomona Fairgrounds itself, not the Animanga event. Overall really great, and I already have my table booked for next year 2020 in Artist Alley! SO looking forward to it and I can't wait!!!!!
