Propeller Anime panels and meetup at Anime Festival Orlando 2018!

It's that time of the year again! August 3rd to 5th will be the 19th annual Anime Festival Orlando at the Wyndham Orlando Resort on International Drive. AFO is pretty much the only convention in Florida with a notable amount of anime programming and we will be host FOUR panels throughout the weekend. Here is our schedule:

Friday, August 3rd

West meets East: Anime based on Western Literature
8:00pm to 9:00pm, Panel Room 2 (Magnolia)

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!

It's MANIME! The Manly Anime Panel! (18+)
10:30pm to 12:00am, Panel Room 1 (Lime)

The panel that's FOR MEN BY MEN is back... with a vengeance! The world needs MANIME now more than ever and we're here to save the day! We have new manly anime and manga to showcase and new lessons to make you a much better, manlier human being. Plus beef jerky and headbutts. OSU!

Saturday, August 4th

NJPW: Strong Style Evolved
9:30pm to 10:30pm, Workshop A (Largo)

New Japan Pro Wrestling has invaded American and taken over the wrestling world. From Bullet Club's civil war to Kazuchika Okada's legendary title reign and the G1 Climax tournament, get a deep dive on the hottest puroresu promotion going today.

The Twisted World of Go Nagai (18+)
11:00pm to midnight, Panel Room 1 (Lime)

Come and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Uncle Go's career! Learn about the creator of Devilman, Cutie Honey, Violence Jack, and Mazinger Z, including how he got started and the impact he has made on Japanese pop culture. It will be a fun time dedicated everyone's favorite dirty uncle from Japan!

We are also going to have a gathering for dinner at Red Robin, right by the Wyndham Orlando Resort on Saturday, August 4th at 4:30pm. They have a pretty solid menu and are in walking distance at 8167 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819. This will give us time to hang out and refuel before the big events of the night.

Pre-registration for AFO closes at the end of Friday, July 27th. It's way easier to do that and avoid lines at the door. AFO is always a fun time every year, and we look forward to seeing you all there!
