“Every aspect of the weekend was great and there isn’t a convention around as friendly, warm and welcoming. When you arrive at London Anime Convention you already feel as though you are in a room of friends, and by the time you leave, you will be. Staff, guests and attendees should all be proud of being part of London Anime Convention.” – Sci-fi London.
“What is frankly incredible about this convention is you can listen to music, play games and watch films pretty much anywhere…the real community, the heart of the convention is found” – Sonic Shocks
