Don't go! (2018 Bak-Anime)

It is the smallest con I've been to, and the sales were the worst I've ever had in any con. (I thought PMX was bad, but boy I did not know how low sales could get.) There is some foot traffic but the attendees had no money and did not want to purchase! I am going to write reviews for ALA and SacAnime since I also tabled there and going to write the same thing, but Bak was..absolutely the worst when it comes to sales. The attendees are way too young to have any real buying power. It is mostly junior high school kids with their parents and this event definitely had more of a local bazaar feel with quite a few attendees that looked like they were mildly interested in anime/gaming and just wanted to *look around (very important)*. I was local-ish and even then I barely broke even after deducting food and gas.

Don't try if you don't live within 30 miles of Bakersfield.

So. Many. Robberies.

I have seen waaaaaaaaaaay too many robberies happen at this con. A lot of Stuff gets stolen from vendors... I hope they take care of this issue... Apart from that, it's a pretty good atmosphere and there are really kind people working there. I would love to keep coming back to this con, but sadly, I'm no longer a local...

I liked it!

This was the first time out of LA county for a con and I'm glad I picked this one. The people were nice, and there was a pretty sizeable crowd. I picked this mostly as my first out of county con bc the price tag was super cheap. I managed to make back what I inverted into the table and supplies and made a bit of profit. I don't know if my experience was unique or if it was good for everyone but personally I liked it. It reminded me a lot of Anime Impulse actually. Staff was non existant tho

This Con Kinda Sucks

Honestly, I Always wish there were more things to do. Get better Panelists, Better Vendors, and Organize a LARP or 2.... Without those things, Its a very bland and poorly made rice ball when you were expecting a very delicious Onigiri filled with Mentaiko and a little benishoga on the side... Sorry, but that's the truth, Mina-san.
