It's finally settled that I'll be going to Ichibancon 2018 next month. This would actually mark my very first anime convention, 2nd overall. Even though I'm going with a friend (whose's already been to Ichibancon at least once), I'm unsure of what to expect when I go, in terms of crowds/mobs, panels, parties, etc.

Anyone whose's gone to one before (regularly or nay): any advice on what to anticipate.

Get a map and time table so you know what you want to see and when to see it, the more popular events might fill up quickly so go early, bring a bag/small backpack and pack + wear deodorant because if it's anything like the cons I've been to they're really hot and crowded and you don't want to be "that" guy sweating everywhere and spreading your stink to other goers, also bring a pen + paper if you want autographs, a cardboard tube if you want posters, cash if you want to buy merchandise, a phone charger external battery, plus maybe some snacks and drinks because it can be expensive and the lines long if you buy it there.
