Our full #AFO13 schedule!

Huzzah! We have received word of when our events will take place at Anime Festival Orlando 13! AFO will be at the Wyndham Orlando Resort on International Drive and Sandlake Road from August 3rd to 5th.

We have been working hard to have everything prepared for your enjoyment! Each of us know our anime(and for one of us, tokusatsu) pretty well and our goal is to get excited about the anime and topics we will be presenting.

In addition to our events, there are other thing to see that we'll post next week!

Make sure you follow us on Twitter(using hashtag #AFO13) and Facebook for weekend updates! Below is our full schedule.

Field trip! We're going to Spirited Away at the Enzian! (7/29)

Great news! We mentioned last week that Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away would be playing at The Enzian in Maitland on Sunday, July 29th(and also on the 31st). It seemed unlikely that those of us who plan events for Propeller Anime would be available to help organize a group to go see the movie.

But it turns out Shane O'Mac actually is available! That's great news! This means we can organize a carpool with people that go to our events. It would also rule if we could help fill the theater for the only anime to ever win an Oscar. RSVP on Facebook!

RE: Anime Nite Dating Game & Future Events

Every second Friday of the month we host Anime Nite @ The Geek Easy, an event that's main objective is to show great anime to the public of Orlando.

Once in a while, we try to have a non-viewing event to change the pace a bit and to bring in a new crowd. Sometimes, those events don't turn out as well as we expected them to and audibles have to be called.

AFO 13 Online Registration ends tomorrow!

Online registration for Anime Festival Orlando 13 ends by the end of Saturday, July 14th. For real this time! Plus, we'll be at AFO! Yeah!

Pre-registeration not only makes it easier to dodge that long line and go straight to enjoying the convention, but if you get a hotel at the Wyndham Orlando Resort for Thursday, August 2nd you will be granted a "Passport to Orlandia" which gives you VIP access to main events, guest autographs, and Thursday events.

Ah! My Goddess added to 7/13 Anime Nite @ The Geek Easy!

On Friday, July 13th at 8PM, we'll have doors open at The Geek Easy in A Comic Shop for our next Anime Nite! We'll have the Anime Nite Dating Game and a showing of Ranma 1/2: Nihao My Concubine. But that's not all!

After over a week of limited free time that was spent going through various anime with romantic themes, it was decided that we will show the first few episodes of Ah! My Goddess. These episodes will be from the TV series that came out in Japan several years ago.
