The Deal

Anime Fan Fest

The word "fan" is far too meager to describe devotees of Japanese animation. In fact, passion for the art and culture of anime and manga runs so deep that the term "otaku" was invented to separate the casual fans from the proudly obsessed. But whether you're an anime rookie who doesn't know Dragonball A from Dragonball Z or a die-hard otaku quick to note there's no such thing as Dragonball A, the family-friendly Anime Fan Fest delivers a weekend of comic book art, costume play, panels, and celebrity guests certain to keep you giddy. Here's a handy guide on what to expect:

  • The Main Events: Get stoked for a Fullmetal Alchemist anniversary celebration and a Robotech convention, compete in a CosPlay contest, and bring your A-game to a dance party and lip-sync battle.
  • Meet the Voices Behind the Characters: Rub elbows with Aaron Mitchell Dismuke—the original voice of Alphonse Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist—Bonnie Gordon—Rainbow Mika in Street Fighter V—Mike McFarland—Jean Havoc in Fullmetal Alchemist—and Vic Mignogna—Dragonball Z, among many others.
  • Masters of Disguise: See CosPlay stars Ani-Mia, Ashley Chantilly, Jesse Pridemore, and Jez Roth in action.
  • Those Behind the Scenes: Pick the brains of Tommy Yune—cowriter and director of Robotech— and Darius Washington—Fandom Post writer.
  • Fan Out: Discuss your favorite anime topics in a series of panels and be among the first to see fan films and world premiers of new anime works.
