serving the convention community since 2007.

Furries at a tug of war.

One of the best parts of doing this site is I get to search out stuff like this from Anthrocon last week in PA. The only thing better than this madness, is well, not much.

Well lookee here, it’s a french anime convention. looks alot like an American one, except with french people!


CoNvergence 07 review.

CONvergence is by far still my favorite convention. It offers enough of the big events most conventions offer and it’s very unique in it’s presentation of it’s room parties. I think most of that is a benefit of the layout of the hotel as the Sheraton lends itself very well to the the masses at […]

gizmodo at botcon

well. it looks fun.


S.K.I.N. concert at Anime Expo looks insane.

I know anime expo is huge but that’s an arena sized concert that many bands who have radio songs could not fill. Good for Anime Expo.


Botcon photo’s are fantastic

Photo’s are going up day by day on the Botcon website. Check out the whale tour. I have a feeling that next year’s Botcon will explode with the movie coming out next week and rekindling all that nostalgia as well as making new fans. Hope you all got your exclusive figures.
