When amateur writer Christie settles in the artist alley of her first ever anime convention, she sees it as an opportunity to promote the manga she had started with her artist boyfriend. But when she unexpectedly falls for a mysterious cosplayer, things become complicated. What do you do when you love someone who is going miles away from you in just a couple of days?! Web-comic vet Svetlana Chmakova gives us a funny, romantic, behind-the-scenes look at an anime convention-where sometimes even two is a crowd!

Christie's adventures at an anime convention are easy to relate to even if you've never been to a con before (I never have). Her first meetings with Matt made my stomach flutter, as it was easy to see that she could easily fall in love with this guy she had just met. Both Christie and Matt are simply so well-realized. Their interactions feel real and their feelings come across as legitimate. After all, isn't it silly to get super attached to a guy you've just met, when he lives across the country?
The other people that Christie meets and befriends also come across as real people, not simply characters fulfilling needed roles. Quite truthfully, this is even better done in the second and third volume, but even in the first volume, it's obvious that Chmakova can write a believable character and their personality in just a few short panels.
