Los Angeles 2010 took place on January 8 – 10, 2010 at the LAX Marriott
(Los Angeles, CA). There is much to be said about the little con that

to the California anime fanbase. Even fans from Northern California
show up to this event to be part of the fun. Many Los Angeles locals
have volunteered their time and talent to put on this successful event.
This year members of the Scarlet Rhapsody team helped put up decorations
and mantled benches on Day Zero. What makes ALA a successful con is
the help that it gets from the anime community. Scarlet Rhapsody team
members did a total of four panels for the event, including one with

in the program guide. We hope you enjoy the report! It's going to be
a good day in L. A.!
