You’ve seen anime based on manga and video games, but have you ever wondered what it would look like to see your favorite classics brought to life in a way that only anime can do? Join us as we explore the journey from the page to screen with all your favorites, from Romeo and Juliet to Howl’s Moving Castle!
Saturday, December 17th
Graphic Anime Horror (18+)
12:30am to 1:30am, Panel A
Welcome to your worst nightmare. (Or greatest dream if your mind is in a bad place.) It’s a showcase of brutal, grotesque, and perhaps sickening anime of the horror genre!
Sunday, December 18th
30 years of Gainax
1:15pm to 2:15pm, Panel B
Gainax has been around for over 30 years and they have delivered some amazing anime to us! From Nadia to Kare Kano to Evangelion and everything between, this will be a celebration of one of the greatest anime studios!
Iron Cardboard Robot Cosplay
1:45pm to 3:45pm, Special Events
Up to 8 teams of 3 will compete for 75 minutes to create and wear robot costumes using cardboard, foil, tape, construction paper, and a secret ingredient! The best team wins prizes courtesy of Propeller Anime!
Seven Deadly Sins in Anime
4:15pm to 5:15pm, Panel B
Lust, Gluttony, Pride, Wrath, Sloth, Envy, and Greed are the seven deadliest sins you can commit. In anime they are given a larger role to play than luring men and women into temptation. Sometimes they are the most memorable characters in a particular show.
We *might* have some other events as well. We shall see. Check back the week of the convention just to make sure. We look forward to seeing you guys!
