Do you like Japanese Anime/Manga? We will be at Otakuthon this weekend and we hope to see you there.
What is Otakuthon? Otakuthon is Quebec’s largest anime convention promoting Japanese animation (anime), Japanese graphic novels (manga), related gaming and Japanese pop-culture. There will be anime-related programming, costume parties, contests, dealer room and tons of other things to do.
Check out their website for hours, programming and other goodies.
It was another great event at the Palais des Congres Convention Center in Montreal…Thank you, Otakuthon. We had 4 booths filled with tons of goodies for the customers. We had our Shrimp Wonton Soup with Noodles and we are happy. If you didn’t make it to the show, you better be there next year.
