To partially sate my persistent curiosity about the anime fandom in the Netherlands, I’ll be attending Nishicon tomorrow, November 13, in Haarlem. As far as I know this is the very first Nishicon, and I’m interested in seeing how it debuts. The only other fledgling conventions I’d been to otherwise were New York Anime Festival and New York Comic Con, and those are quite different in scale for a variety reasons, one of which is that the NY cons are professionally run exhibitions.

In any case, I’ll be there for probably most of the day. You can find me by speaking Dutch and observing my blank stare.
