Madman in conjunction with AnimeLab have announced a new convention for Australian fans – Anime Festival! Taking place in Melbourne in September at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, this will be an event not to miss! From the official site:
Madman Anime Festival is a celebration of anime and Japanese culture. Held on September 3rd and 4th, 2016 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Brought to you by Australia’s biggest name in anime, Madman Entertainment, together with Australia’s #1 anime streaming service AnimeLab.
The site has all the details you could want at this stage, and even though it’s early days there is loads of stuff already planned, with more features and guests still to be announced, but they’ve already got One Punch Man Director Shingo Natsume and both the Japanese and English voice actresses for Asuka Langley – Yuko Miyamura and Tiffany Grant. It’s an impressive line-up that will only get better. Tickets are on sale now, so get planning!
