Naka-Kon 2019

This year’s Naka-Kon maintained quality seen in previous years, as well as attendance rate. With guests from a variety of industries, attendees found themselves in a place of learning beyond that of just anime. With this review, we are starting a new, more clearly defined rating system, as you will see below.

Naka-Kon’s base score was 36/40, making it an A- Rank con before bonus items are added.
