Adventure Time! Madoka Magica! Anime! Ponies! Rave! MORE! (at Gen Con 2013 this month!)
Did you know that Gen Con, the largest tabletop gaming convention in North America, has an Anime/Animation track? You didn’t? Really?
WELL NOW YOU DO!
Each year, fans of anime, cartoons, and cosplay take over the Westin Indianapolis connected to the Indiana Convention Center during Gen Con. This year is no different and the track has been expanded to offer hundreds of hours of entertainment from Thursday, August 15th through Sunday, August 18th. Here’s some of the AMAZINGNESS to consider…
MEET THE VOICE OF FLAME PRINCESS FROM ADVENTURE TIME! Voice actress Jessica DiCicco will be on hand for autograph signings and panel discussions. (Check local track schedule for details.)
MEET THE VOICE OF KYUBEY FROM PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA! Join voice actress Cassandra Lee Morris for autograph signing, panel appearances, and a very special presentation of “Kyubey: Good or Evil?” (ANI135113) on Saturday at 4:00 PM.
CHILL OUT AND WATCH SOME ANIME! The fine folks at Crunchyroll (with some choice help from the Indiana Animation Club) are providing hours of Japanese animated goodness throughout the weekend in the Westin. Take a break from shopping and gaming at Gen Con and introduce yourself to some amazing new titles like Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Attack on Titan!
GLOW STICKS, MUSIC, AND DANCING! Join us Friday night at 11:00 PM for the Otaku Insomnia (ANI1351193) Rave style dance party. The event, hosted by Wasabi Anime®, will feature DJ Kittypillaz (the stage name for our voice acting guests Cassandra Lee Morris and Jessica DiCocco… yes, they DJ, too!) Additional music and beats provided by Indiana’s local anime convention: Anime Crossroads!
