Uhh so can i have some info about this con?
Is it like an anime con?
Uhh i know it's a small con.
But like here are my questions:

How many people usually go(Someone on YouTube said like only 500 people go)

How much anime merchandise is sold in the dealers room?

What anime merchandise is sold(if you know) like last year did have some Ouran or soul eater or D. gray man merchandise(Those are currently my favorite animes so i wanna get some merchandise)

Sorta wish i knew about this con earlier.

Well last year was my first time to go and i'll be going again this year. For details about the con and its events I suggest you go to their website.

As for ur other questions, mmmm, i think roughly around more than 500 went from what I've seen. The dealers hall, ehhh, it's okkkkkk but I expected better. Like they would sell keychains, some shirts/acessories, figures, manga and such.

The dealer's room is small. I don't know about specific merchandise because I don't really take mental notes about what each vendor has to offer. I never stay in the dealer's room long enough to look for specific items. Artists alley is usually just a few tables.

Yeah, the official attendance was listed as slightly over 900. However, if you're a CSUN student, you can go for free. I'd certainly go to more cons if they were free, even if I just stayed for 10 minutes and left. Who knows how long people stick around if they go for free or if they're really interested? Maybe they're just curious and just want to check it out. Offering free memberships probably boosts attendance numbers. It might be 900 in attendance, but you won't have all 900 people crammed into one small space at the same time. It will never feel extremely crowded.

Yes, it's a small con, but it being smaller makes it a more intimate environment, which I really like about small cons. The dealer hall doesn't have a ton of stuff, but the prices tend to be better than they are at larger cons. I know they had Ouran last year, and some D.Gray Man stuff. I saw a couple Soul Eater things, but it should be better this year.
