Anime Southeast review

photo (3)Drove up this morning to Anime Southeast in Sevierville, TN for day 3 of the convention. What I found was a very nice Anime con hosted at a super nice hotel/waterpark family theme resort.

Anime Southeast took up about half of the properties convention space, which means there is room to grow if needed. I imagine the Waterpark saw its fair share of cosplayers over the weekend as well which is and added bonus. Throw in all the tourist traps in the surrounding Sevierville/Piegon Forge area and I could see this convention being added to someones weeklong vacation plans.

Anime Southeast did a great job with the layout of the convention having 4 panel rooms all of adequate size for the programming, and a nice long dealers room with a little under 20 dealers. The artist alley is right near main programming and before the dealers hall ensuring all the artist get passed at least once during the course of the day. Pretty great location to get your artwork seen.

The map had a room labeled Lounge/Video Game room, but I assume it was closed for the convention on Sunday as i never saw the door open during my time there today.

I sat for a few panels and enjoyed the variety presented from Anime Food, to Samurai battle techniques, to a Pokemon Game show. This convention is easy going and I’d happily recommend it to any Anime fans. Hope to get to return for more than one day next year, and maybe hit the water park.
