Sangawa Project 2017 / December 19, 2017

Sangawa Project is an adult anime convention (18+) run by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society. This convention allows anime fans to meet a couple of their favorite voice actors, cosplay, play some games in the gaming room, and attend some panels. The best part of it all is the mature environment surrounding the convention! This year, Sangawa brought Colleen Clinkenbeard, who plays Ema Hinata in Brothers Conflict, Momo Yaoyorozu in My Hero Academia, Riza Hawkeye in Fullmetal Alchemist, and many more! They also brought Rob McCollum, who plays Reiner in Attack on Titan, Shinya Kogami in Psycho-Pass, Mifune in Soul Eater, and many more!

The Sangawa Social is a place to just hangout or to participate in a recipe challenge. There was also an…

Shinigami Love Apples. Death Note In Depth”. This panel was all about Death Note, the speakers of the panel were even in cosplay. L asked if we were all Pro-Kira or Anti-Kira, which if you’ve watched this show you’re most likely Pro-Kira. Who wouldn’t love someone who wanted to get rid of all of the bad people and crime in the world? The room, unsurprisingly was Pro-Kira for the most part. They also brought it different aspects of how Death Note relates to the Bible. Another one of the panels we attended was “Sweet Viktuuri- Behind the Scenes of Yuri! On Ice”. This panel was interactive and very fun. You could definitely tell the presenter knew what she was talking about. I learned…
