If you like anime, have a slight interest in anime, or even curious to know what anime is and also live close to the Mid-south area there is a anime convention starting up called Anime Blues Convention.
It'll happen the weekend of July 8-10 in Memphis, TN at the Hilton Memphis on 939 Ridge Lake Boulevard.
There will various events planned during the con which includes cosplay contests, video game tournaments, and live bands. Also there will be guest panels featuring Vic Mignogna (voice of Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist and Fai from Tsubasa Chronicles), Kyle Hebert (voice of Ryu from Street Fighter IV and Aizen from Bleach) and Maile Flanagan (voice of Naruto Uzumaki from Naruto and Naruto Shippuden).
For more information please visit their website at: www.animeblues.com
Important: I do highly recommend in pre-registering before June 15th because if you do, the cost of tickets for all 3 days will be 25.00 per adult, 20.00 per person if you're coming as a group of 5 or more, and 15.00 per child between the ages of 6-12. Otherwise it will be 40.00 at the door.
Also, if you're coming from out of town I believe the Hilton at which the convention is being held at still have some rooms available for reserve and the cost of those will be $89. So reserve those rooms while they're still available!! For information about that their number is: (901) 684-6664.
I hope to see some of you guys there and make this a successful event so that we can continue to do it for years to come.
Also, if anyone has time or just passing through, could you please bump this page so people can keep seeing it and keep this thread going? Your work will be greatly appreciated.
