This is a upcoming anime event that will take place on September 8th to 11th 2011, a 4 day event for anime fans and yours truly has been invited to the convention. This makes you wonder, you probably thought I wasn’t into anime since I never post up any news on it but I might not be a hardcore fan of anime, I do like to watch it although I’m not update date with the more modern ones such as Naruto, One Piece, etc, but I am a fan of Bleach and Ghost in the Shell series so I’m not totally out of date…. I just like the classics really such as Fist of the North Star and Street Fighter…. anyway!
The event takes place at the De Montfort University in Leicester and it’s a 4 day event starting from the 8th of September to the 11th of September. Passes to the event cost around £30 for all four days so it’s quite reasonable and there is on-site accommodation too if you can’t find a place to stay for a night or two, that will cost about £25 per night. The event has (Or will have) a dealers room, anime screenings, anime bar and night-club, artist ally, roleplaying, card-gaming, video-gaming, a cosplay cafe, DDRing, J-Culture, Cosplay Hangout, events, panels and many more things to come.
This is a great place to show off your cosplays and there is a special thing for people who register to the event, you have a choice of 3 groups, this is just something for fun during the event, when registering, you have a choice of 3 clans, the pirates, the ninjas or the vampires. Basically, the group with the most registered members wins the event at the end of it all, as I said, it’s just for fun so don’t feel too distracted if it costs extra.
