This weekend, anime-themed merchandiser Anime Pop is celebrating it's Grand Opening here in Austin with what it's calling, "Anime Pop Austin's Kick Butt Mini-Con & Grand Opening". Although the Facebook event page doesn't give details, the mini-con will presumably have a healthy selection of 'merch' to shop through as well as other attractions. The event is this Saturday, from 1-5pm. It's located at 5775 Airport Blvd, Ste 725c, Austin, Texas, 78752.
The Nexcrew Team is planning to attend the event. A follow-up to this story will follow. Here is a link to the event page: Jump to Event Page here
Mark your calendars for Labor Day Weekend and prepare for this year's San Japan anime convention. The exact dates of the yearly event (now in it's 11th year) are August 31st to September 2nd. The event will be held at the HBG Convention Center in San Antonio, TX.
For those of us looking for some fun this Labor Day it seems like the perfect getaway, not too mention the lure of San Antonio as a whole. Here's some information from the convention's own website:
"San Japan will be bringing the fun once again to the River Walk as we take place in three concurrent locations at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio Grand Hyatt Hotel and the Marriott Riverwalk Hotel.
