Anime is a growing fandom all around the world and numerous companies have tried to compact all the excitement of the this community into conventions.

Annette Thal, a 7th grade anime lover, said that for a good anime convention there has to be, “more cosplaying” and it should be held in, “spring/summer or mid fall”.  For those that don’t know cosplaying is people dress up in their favorite characters from shows

Thal likes anime, “because it expresses myself in a way that nobody else can see” Thal has introduced anime and manga to others including Emily Snyder.

Snyder, also a WMS 7th grader, likes anime simply because, “ it’s funny, relatable, and there is so much you can do with drawing that you can’t do with CGL and live action.”

Both Snyder and Thal have never gone to a convention before, but would like to in the future.

Gabriela Lugo, a WMS 7th grader, said that from Puerto Rico introduced her to anime.The first anime Lugo watched was My Neighbor Totoro and her first favorite is Sailor Moon.

Lugo went to one of these events in New York City, though she believes that LA would be a good place to have an anime convention. She also believes that the best time to have a convention is in, “Autumn so that it is not too hot and not cold either since there are cosplayers with heavy suits.”

Lugo went through heavy bullying in her school before hers now. She says anime, “helped her escape the real world.”

Everyone in this article has one thing in common, their love for anime. They all had different stories on how they got hooked. All the same they have made new friends along the way because of this simple interest and because of this big family.
