The whole part about the con being over crowded I agree on and also the smaller amount of anime merch. But there actually was quite a few anime/ japanese culture related panels and screenings. They had the gundam uc, gundam 00 and kuroshitsuji screenings for one. Also panels for gundam uc and anime, manga and harajuku fashion, lolita etc. There were quite a few panels of actual interest this time.
The con for me wasnt that bad. I just dont like that I was constantly shoved around and the lack of anime merch. Other than that it wasnt that bad. I think they just need to learn to incorporate the con more together. 50/50 if anything not 75/25 like this year :/
