Episode 81: Anime North 2019

We recap our time at Anime North 2019, held in Toronto, Canada. We cover our experiences at the convention, including taking part as panelists and media, cospalying, organizing and running photoshoots, and seeing the exhibitor hall and artist alley. We take a no holds barred approach to evaluating the positives and negatives of Canada’s largest anime convention.

Notes:  The convention weekend marks the seventh year anniversary of the founding of the Bastards of Kingsgrave podcast!
