Well, Otakuthon 2011 came and went in a flash. It was organized by the Concordia University Anime Club and I have to say it was a smashing success. Not to kiss any assess but the staff and volunteers were incredible. We have done hundreds of shows over the past 20 years and we never had any convention staff/volunteers help us unload before the show started. It was freakin’ great! We are looking forward to returning next year. Thank you Elaine, the wonderful Otakuthon staff and all the volunteers who helped us out.
The mini-Comic Con is hosted by the Montreal Comic Con. This is a small-scale event where visitors can meet a dozen of local artists, participate in a masquerade and a costume contest, as well as buy products from a large array of dealers – comic books, manga, collectibles, movies, video games, toys, and much more!
*Tickets will only be sold at the door (room 200-N). Free for children under 10.
Half of ticket sales will be donated to the Red Cross to help Japan and its people.
It’s on…..Otakuthon is back, Quebec’s largest anime convention promoting Japanese animation (anime), Japanese graphic novels (manga), related gaming and Japanese pop-culture has set a date for 2010. It will be a 3 day event (Aug. 13-15) held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is a non-profit, fan-run anime convention that was initiated by Concordia University’s anime club, named “Otaku Anime of Concordia University” (Otaku Anime for short). The name “Otakuthon” is a portmanteau of the Japanese word “otaku” and “marathon”.
Show Date: August 13-15, 2010
Location: Palais des Congres de Montreal
