While 2021 will look different from our usual romp in Los Angeles, it doesn’t change the fact that this year marks 30 years since our predecessor, Anime Con in San Jose took place in 1991! In honor of #AnimeExpo30th, we’re sharing stories each month leading up to Anime Expo Lite and invite you to be a part of it! Today, we’re sharing reflections from our volunteers and staff on what they love about AX!

Tell us what you love about AX and don’t forget to tag @AnimeExpo and #AnimeExpo30th on Twitter or Instagram so we can share on our channels and also Anime Expo Lite!

“I was constantly inspired by all the amazing people who worked alongside me to make this show happen. I have never felt more at home. It was always incredible to me to watch how quickly huge empty halls filled with things and people that I love.”

  •  Christina G., Volunteer Resources & Finance (2012-2017)
“What I love about AX is being a part of a larger community. Our volunteers work very hard each year to provide the best experience to all that come to AX. Getting to see the happiness and joy from our attendees definitely makes it all worthwhile.”
