The Sporting Life: MTAC Review and C2E2 Preview Edition

Meet artist Anthony Fowler Jr. at C2E2.

The Middle Tennessee Anime Convention (MTAC) for 2024, Dueling Dragons, ran Friday, March 29 through Sunday, March 31, 2024 at the Sheraton Music City Hotel and Embassy Suites Airport in Nashville. In our preview article last month, we promised to revisit the experiences of Gray and Mika at MTAC Dueling Dragons.

“MTAC was very different than what I expected, and I probably didn’t get the full experience due to the fact I got hurt the night before and was wheelchair bound for the weekend,” says Mika. “Most of the people I met were very kind and accommodating, and I got to meet some very cool voice actors. I loved to see all the cool costumes, and it definitely fulfilled all my expectations despite being hurt. Even though I was in pain and couldn’t go to all the events I’m still happy I went! My company and the people I met were definitely the highlight of my weekend. I can’t wait to go next year and hopefully I’ll be in better health!”

We certainly hope so, too!

“MTAC 2024 was everything I had expected then more,” says Gray. “I had met new people and even reunited with some old friends. I didn’t get to do everything I had wanted but that was all worth it for the things I did do. The people I got to hang out with were amazing and the ones I met were awesome! My favorite part was being able to meet two of my favorite voice actors Bryce Papenbrook and Justin Cook, they were super nice and overall a joy to meet! Seeing everyone’s cosplays and seeing the time and effort it takes is also astounding to see. Costumes that good really take time and commitment and I applaud people with that much patience! Even if I didn’t do much of the events getting to walk around and talk to people still made going worth it. I can’t wait until next year when I can go again and see what happens there.” And neither can we!
