Chibicon 2008



Hey there! I don't know how many of you folks would be interested but there's a new anime convention in town! Its on its first years so things have been a little shaky! I am helping run the con I'm on the unofficial committee lol >_<

The Con is in beautiful Derby and the venue is The Derby Assembly Rooms in the town centre, close to cheap b&b's in the area and some not so cheap hotels. The date for this lovely con is the 20-21 September and there is no age limit, though there are age restricted areas *"hentai room" cough*

if you click my signature it will take you to the site where you can check it out and buy tickets, it needs updating and some work doing to it but we have someone at it as we speak! So excuse the poor status of the site at the moment! You can also join the forums and speak to us all!

Tokyo otaku are running the con, their a shop based in Derby, there a great guys with an excellent anime fan base, and run regular group meetings.

We are looking for NINJAS! Who are basically our gopher's lol! Though it really is your choice if you dress as a ninja or not! Were also looking for maids for our maid restaurant where we will be serving Japanese food like teriyaki, ramen, rice ect...

There will be several events like plushie making, a sumo event and downtown events.
There's also room for a little silly fun with musical anime posses, which is a variation on music statues only with, you guessed it! Anime posses! There will also be traditonal japanese games

There's a games area with dance mat, role playing games etc.. and karaoke ares so you can sing away to jpop and Jrock

We are only a small con as it's our first year, but we are hoping to do as best we can, please wish us luck and support us! Even if you can't come and just spread the word it will be great!

what more were only £10 for both days

so why not?

if there are any tickets left tomorrow i'm booking mine then

by the way, any recommendations for b&b? i googled some but can't tell which are decent and which are cheap or even which are close enough to the venue.

lookin forward to it already!

I would love to come, cause it sounds like a lot of fun! And I'm all for getting starting cons off the ground (there aren't enough in the UK. I'd love to get one started down in Brighton, but wouldn't know where to begin, so major kudos to you!)
But I don't know if I'd be able to get the time of work! D: let alone if I'd be able to afford it.

I guess i'll have to see nearer the time, if there are tickets left and how much holiday I have remaining. If I don't get to go this year, I hope its running next year so I'll get a chance to go! ^^

But good luck with it!

thank you so so much

as for b&b's most in derby are good quality as its a student town and the university sometimes put students in b&b temporally while they find them a home lol so they are university approved lol
