Anime or MamaMe

I thought my #2 son came to visit me on his block leave before heading off to Afghanistan. Naw! He really came to Nashville for the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention.

I took a look at the events, so maybe I don’t blame him. I wonder if there’s still time to put together a costume? I guess I’m lucky that the AnimeCon was in Nashville since I’ve looked at the upcoming schedule of all the other events planned this year. I’m trying to get a handle on the number of potential readers attending these events. I may have to ask said-son to spy for me to see what’s most popular. 

In the meantime take a look at all of these activities and see if you can determine why so many people attend.
