The Con: Anime PPDX 2
The Place : Crowne Plaza Portland-Downtown Convention Center.
The Dates : 21-23 July 2017
Anime PDX is an upstart anime convention hosted by the same people who brought us NewCon . Travel Kitty, Kiju Kitty 1 and Chococat were my companions.
Anime PDX was a one day event, sponsored by Newconpdx and on August 6, 2016 at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront. I left a little latter because There was not much in the way of panels that interested me. I brought my Kiju Kitty two to the event. I still had a lot of fun and attended the Anime Game show panel and the rest of the Lip Synch Battle event.
One the biggest news out of Anime Pdx is next year Amine PDX will be a full blown three day Anime convention. in 2017. I asked the Chairman about will it saturate Portland with another anime convention; he made a good point about need a summer con, after the school year, especially Kumoricon moved to the fall. Then again Newcon has a heavy Anime presence.
