This weekend will be the second annual Anime Impulse convention being held at the Pomona Fairplex. This is the same place that the Los Angeles Fair is held, so if you know where that is you know where this is going to be held. Last year Dre and I went and had a great time. It was fun to see the foundation of what is looking to be a growing convention, which will hopefully be able to soon fill either the Anaheim, Long Beach or Los Angeles Convention Center. It’s really all about word of mouth when wanting to see something you see potential grow, and last year there wasn’t a disappointed face in the whole place so there has to be other people sharing the same feelings I do.
Like last years Anime Impulse this will be happening both Saturday and Sunday with different events happening each day. For cosplayers you’ll want to pay attention to the times, because there are panels on both days, but on Sunday you’ll see the Le Geek So Chic Fashion Show. For those who want to go take pictures of cosplayere, there will be plenty of time for that as well as shopping for art from known and up and coming artists. I want to give a big shot out to Geoff Pascual who is an amazing artist and someone I met years ago at a past convention. He has blown up and you can go check out his website here.
