iAX: "Anime conventions are major events that are started by a community of fans, embraced, and developed. There are a variety of conventions out there that celebrate the medium of anime and manga. One of the conventions I had the pleasure to attend was San Diego’s first local anime convention, Anime Conji. It was the event’s second year, and it was a great convention to attend. Attending a convention like Anime Conji is a unique experience from someone whose inaugural anime experience was a large anime convention like Anime Expo. There are many differences between a smaller convention like anime Anime Conji, and a massive convention like Anime Expo."
