Show Notes

On this episode of the CaliConBlogCast, we look back a decade ago to Anime Expo 2013 and balance the nostalgia with the current reality of everything from our own lives to the anime industry to the convention itself. We also discuss Evolution 2023 breaking records, Twitch versus Kick, the SAG-AFTRA strike, Sac Anime Summer Guests, Kumoricon's COVID policy reversal, and look into the world of Funko Pops in the wake of what occurred at this year's AX and what one convention has already declared.
