This was Chibi Media’s first time attending Florida Anime Experience, and it was…an experience.
Let us preface this by stating that we at Chibi Media do not discriminate on the size of conventions. While there is typically less to do/report on at smaller cons, that doesn’t sway our opinion of the overall experience.
That said, we unfortunately don’t have much to report about this convention despite having boasted being the best anime convention in Florida in its previous year. For all the bragging, Florida Anime Experience was massively underwhelming. Even the Facebook page during the weeks prior to the convention were low in traffic and even lower in hype.
Still, we have a responsibility to give you a fair and honest report of our opinions in these reviews, so here we go.
