The threats of the Corona Virus from the past years have caused events such as anime conventions to be at hold and even cancelled. However, now that the world is healing from the dreadful virus gatherings are now made possible. 

It is amazing how culture can be transformed into and driven by art. The power to showcase this in different parts of the globe makes patches and patches of knowledge, understanding, and appreciation across different nationalities. 

Anime and Manga that was born in Japan is loved, enjoyed, and experienced all over the world through conventions especially in California.
