I am proud to announce to all of Ani-Pock:The first Ani-Pock convention meet-up!
Well... though I doubt a lot of you will be able to make it... here's the scoop anyways.
Traverse City, Michigan, USA, will be hosting an anime convention, the first in northern Michigan, on May 10th! This is the official con of Ani-Pock members
. Why? Because Tiffany "Asuka" Grant will be a guest presenter!
Also, the whole con will be filled with unique events and presentations including a Mr. and Mrs. Otaku (like prom king and queen, but for those of us who never stood a chance) and other interesting panels and screenings, including some films you may not see anywhere else, anymore!
The con is a one day event, but we intend to spill over into an extra day where we will screen anime movies all day at the historic downtown theatre in Traverse City.
I as well as my Co-Planners, in charge of the local anime club, found here
, have been planning this convention for just a short while, but have not skimped on quality events we want to bring to our beloved otaku community!
Here is the Northern Michigan Anime Convention
(NMAC, like the Mackinac Bridge, the "Mighty Mac") website. The other co-planners agreed that Ani-Pock will be mentioned on the site as NMAC being the official con for Ani-Pock members, but we are expecting between 200-300 guests in this, our first year!
We may even possibly pick some other locations in future years to hold further Ani-Pock-official-convention-meet-ups, but let's see how many people make it to this one first, eh? XD
Talk to Kip for more info!
