Anime Weekend Atlanta 2019

‘Not to sound like a downer, but I was disappointed this AWA.  I’m not going to go into too much detail right now, but I’m about 70% sure that this is going to be my last AWA for a while.

It wasn’t because of the top brass.  I personally met with some of them, and they are still the very attentive and caring group of individuals, despite change in ownership and some management.

I think that it is a matter of something getting too big to control in its present place, and just a few people; we can’t avoid some people being assholes.

I was finally able to attend the AWA Ball, and I wasn’t impressed.  I could have definitely found a better way to spend my VIP Ball ticket money. (Next time you offer a meal for the VIPs at a certain time, at least list it on the bloody schedule on the program and in the app!)

On the positive tip, there were plenty of great cosplayers and very helpful staff to point us in the right directions.  There were theatre rooms set up for all hours of the night for anime lurkers.  There were also all of the vendor and artist goodness you expect to find at a con.

I didn’t see as many photographers roaming around this time, but I think it might have been because of the highly planned scheduled photo shoots that were listed in the app greatly ahead of time. (I suppose that is a good thing, but I enjoy the chance meetings of conventions.)
