For many of the the Nerd Herd, this is our first time attending KCon LA and it’s quite different from KCon NY (or NYAdjacent for those of us with any geographical knowledge). First, it’s inside and there’s all sorts of AC blasting…I brought a sweater and this pleases me. Second, the panels are so much better when you can hear them because they aren’t in a tent next to another tent where someone is performing. And there were more panels…lots more. And third, there was a lot more merch for sale. Not enough of the crap I wanted to buy, but a lot more. And finally, there seemed to be an attempt to make the show a bit more interactive, well rounded, and paired down so you could enjoy the performances…not a lot of fluff to block the dancing. Airbnb Bedmate Alix particularly enjoyed the rotating MC’s.
