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?
