Finally, we’re getting to the bigger conventions now. TsunaCon is considered to be the part of the Dutch Big Three anime conventions, but there’s something interesting about the Big Three. While this is the shortest convention during only one day from 11:00 to 23:00, it is also considered the most popular of all three, which is quite surprising. You’d expect AnimeCon or AbunaiCon to be at least more successful since they last over the weekends. However, AnimeCon has lately been labelled as quite the elitist convention with high prices and unneeded high culture, so to say. On the opposite, AbunaiCon has been switching locations here and there, and now it’s in a position where people kind of get lost in the venue. I personally prefer AbunaiCon since it’s close and I can volunteer for the weekend, but let’s talk about TsunaCon right now.
Hey there, here’s a quick update on what’s going on right now. I’m slightly busy right now due to most of my university courses being FAT courses. You can take that abbreviation quite literally; FAT means that instead of having 14 classes in the course of 14 weeks, the amount of weeks will be halved, meaning I will have 2 classes every week for 7 weeks. So consider me being quite focussed on university at the moment. I will still try to post at least one thing per week to keep you guys up-to-date, nevertheless. So here’s what’s going on over the course of February.
The official name for this convention is actually Abunai, but I prefer keeping the name suffixed with “convention” somehow. It’s one of the Big Three Dutch conventions, as I like to call them. The largest one is AnimeCon (the ever-so-standard name for an anime convention, really), but it’s really pricey and takes place when you usually have your final exams before the summer break… then again, it does have the best dealer room and events. Followed just before the summer break ends is Abunai, which I’ll be talking about in this post. And the final one is also the shortest one lasting for only one day, called TsunaCon (I remember this being some kind of portmanteau of Tsunami and Tuna).
