I took the time to check out Anime Pasadena on Saturday, May 27, 2018. Pasadena is probably the most beautiful areas I’ve seen in California. The newly minted anime convention was held at Pasadena Convention Center. There was cosplay, special guest, panels, and vendors.
The city of Pasadena is easily accessible whether you are driving or taking the Metro. If you pre-registered, all the staff had to do is scan the barcode so you can get a wristband. It was pretty easy. The Pasadena Convention Center was a bit small but the organizers made sure to utilize each part of the convention center.
There were a few exciting points. Being an older cosplayer and photographer, seeing Jason Paige perform the original Pokémon theme took me back to when I was about 8 years old. It is a classic. The J-Fashion show was also a key point because I’m a fashion artist and j-fashion enthusiast myself.
There was something for everyone at Anime Pasadena. What lacked the square space, it made up for the entertainment and special guests.
