There were times when I was active in manga and anime fandom. In fact those were my beginnings (I already wrote about it). Some years ago, however, I almost completely left that part of fandom. Yet in the pandemic times I moved back closer to it.
The majority of Polish conventions are made by fans for fans and they aren’t run for profit. Still, with fandom being relatively big, it was only a matter of time when commercial cons would appear. Warsaw Comic Con that took place in the first four days of June was the first to happen, but not the first that had been planned.
