According to their website, Yama-Con is "an organization founded to celebrate everything nerd, geek, and otaku. [They] operate fully on a volunteer basis to bring our attendees events that are focused around all the entertainment they love, such as anime, manga, comics, video games, and more." Yama-Con was once again held at the LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge, in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Despite some of the tragedy that had recently befallen Gatlinburg, Yama-Con still did an amazing job of bringing together like-minded people to share in the joy and excitement of anime, comics, and all-around geekiness. For New Monster, it was great to return to the con that we know and love! We were able to see some familiar faces, play some games, and (of course) see some amazing cosplay!!
