I was going to do a tweet-thread about this but then it got really long so I decided to repurpose this into a blog post. The main reason why I’m writing this is because of how the style of the documentary and some of the uninformed backlash from social media just rubbed me the wrong way.
Sakura-con, one of the US’s major anime conventions, has come and gone for another year this past weekend. Luckily it’ll be returning next year. But this year, Sakura-con lacked something it had for the past two years, which will not likely never ever to return. Something I had always looking forward to since its inception, something which brought a window view of an anime convention to be seen anywhere around the world – given that they have a stable internet connection. I’m talking about Niconico’s Live Streams.
