Heads up! FanimeCon is this coming weekend!

FanimeCon 2011 LogoWell, Memorial Day weekend will soon be upon us, and you know what that means… it’s FanimeCon time once again!! Yes, that’s right, FanimeCon will once again be returning to the San Jose Convention Center for four days of fun-filled anime goodness, this coming weekend, Friday-Monday, May 27-30. This is a terrific convention, and very fan-friendly (they are, after all, billing themselves as a convention run “by fans, for fans”) and is set in a perfect location — two hotels directly attached, easy access via public transportation for those not staying on-site, and plenty of food of all types and prices within easy walking distance.

This year’s Guests of Honor include anime book author Gilles Poitras; author and martial artist Ric Meyers; actor and singer Yuya Matsushita; manga artist Ryusuke Hamamoto; anime director Seiji Mizushima; animation director and character designer Takahiro Yoshimatsu; voice actor Tohru Furuya; Hangry & Angry character and fashion designer GASHICON; singer and voice actress Halko Momoi; Hiroyuki Yamaga, one of the co-founders of GAINAX and an anime industry veteran; animation director Fumio Iida; illustrator Mamoru Yokota; and musicians FLOW and Yoshiki.

Besides that rather impressive guest roster, there is of course all the usual trappings of an anime convention: a rather impressive dealer’s room and Artist’s Alley; panels and workshops galore; cosplay competition; music; gaming; martial arts (!!); and of course tons of anime being screened in the multiple video rooms.

Unfortunately pre-registration is closed, so you’ll have to register at-con. A full weekend badge will run you $60; single-day badges can be purchased for $30 (Friday), $35 (Saturday and Sunday), and $25 (Monday). For more information check out the FanimeCon website.

We will be at-con and I’ll do my best to get you as much coverage as possible. (I won’t make any more promises beyond that (wouldn’t want to jinx myself now would I? 😉 ) Definitely keep an eye on the Otaku no Podcast website as well as our livestream page and our Twitter stream. Also, we will shortly be posting the schedule of events we are interested in on our brand-new Con Calendar page.
