On June 13 to 15 2014 the J-Pop Foundation will organize their 16th convention named Anime.
For this year we have chosen the theme "Summer Games" in The Hague's World Forum.

The convention offers a huge program with many events based on Anime, Manga and Japanese pop culture, several video rooms showing you anime and asian movies, a gameroom and dealer room.
Our program also provides several competitions, workshops and presentations.

As we are in the early stages of preparation I do not have a lot of information yet but I will edit this post once more becomes available.

You can also follow us on our Website, Facebook and Twitter

I'm sorry for the double post, but here I am again with another update on Anime 2014.

From our Facebook page:

Exciting news!
Because we spent our entire budget for musicians on KOTOKO we decided that we had to cancel all other possible artists we planned for Anime this year.

HOWEVER! One artist's management agreed on us starting a fund raiser to get her to perform at Anime.
If we reach the 3000 euro limit, we will have ORIGA at Anime 2014!

More news on how to help get her to perform at Anime and your chance on personalised double albums through our tickbooth soon!

Thank you George for making and maintaining this thread for us, but we feel it is our turn to bud in!
It is time for our next announcement:

As we have already spent our budget on getting KOTOKO to perform at Anime 2014 we really need your help, so please share the link below so we can also have ORIGA performing live at Anime 2014!
ORIGA is known for Ghost in the Shell, Stand Alone Complex, Fantastic Children, Final Fantasy and more!

This time, it is rather important for us to get your support so we can invite ORIGA.

We're already close to half way! Please help us get ORIGA to perform at Anime 2014 as well!
