It's getting closer! MegaCon, Florida's largest comic book, anime, sci-fi, and gaming convention will be on February 17th-19th at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL!
As of the time of this writing, you can still pre-order tickets and avoid the long lines at registration. We highly recommend doing that so you can spend more time at events like ours!
We have the rules for our all our contests up! Check out what we have for the Ninja Olympics, Iron Cardboard Robot Cosplay, and the Quickdraw! Contest. We also have a schedule of all our events, including panels and showings here.
Our friends at Anime Sushi also posted a full schedule of all the anime events, which includes our panels from guests such as Chris Sabat, Todd Haberkorn, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, Brina Palenica, Mark Meer, and Vic Mignogna.
The anime event schedule also features events and panels from the likes of Anime Spot, Anime Addicts Anonymous, Anime World Order, and many others!
We've been involved with MegaCon for quite some time now, and this is by far the best line-up of anime events and guests the convention has ever had. It's better than almost every anime convention in Florida and we hope to see you there!
This Friday will also be very good. The week before MegaCon, we'll be at A Comic Shop for Anime Nite @ The Geek Easy! We're going to have Anime Debate Tournament, which features teams of fans arguing over anime-related topics, and a showing of a Studio Ghibli film.
To find out more about that, check this article out and you can also RSVP on Facebook. The event is free and it's a good way for anime fans to get together and party!
A Comic Shop is located at 114 S. Semoran Blvd Winter Park, FL 32792. The event starts at 8PM but show up a little early if you have a team that wants to debate.
