I hope you all have been saving up money, because convention season is approaching in Houston.
An easy way to check what events will be happening around town is either through Eventbrite, or George R. Brown Convention Center. Both websites provide information on dates, times and location for multiple events happening in Houston. And what better way to begin your convention excursions than checking out the fastest growing convention in North America, Anime Matsuri XII.
Held from March 30 to April 1, Anime Matsuri has attracted thousands of attendees in past events. Not to mention participants from 22 different countries, Anime Matsuri is sure to satisfy the interests of every anime fan. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a newbie, artist, musician, or technological designer, Anime Matsuri is fit for you.
Anime has always been home to spectacular works of art, stories, character development, and an overwhelming fan base. This convention is the perfect opportunity to either immerse yourself and see what the rage is all about, or meet fellow fans. From seeing cosplayers from your favorite shows, buying merchandise, or attending events, Matsuri has it all. New this year is a special exhibition for the 1995 classic, “Neon Genesis Evangelion.” Known for its special take on the mecha genre, fans have long adored the dark, psychological aspect this show took.
