Anime fandom has been around in the U.S. for almost 20 years. Natsukashii Seminar hopes to educate and remind fans of old school anime. If you simply want to know what anime fandom was like in the early days when people put together garage resin kits, collected cells, thought Project A-ko was pretty racy, and liked Lupin, you’re welcome. Come and learn about the history of anime, manga, and fandom, and see some old things that might be new again at Natsukashii Seminar!
Here you can grab a bite to eat, get a drink, or just relax. Voted “Best Consuite” by everyone we’ve talked to about it. Contents are usually free drinks (non-alcoholic), chips, veggies and dips, doughnuts & milk in the mornings, and “Otaku Chow.”
Lots of awesome dealers selling lots of really cool and mostly Anime-related merchandise. Pick up some new Anime, a snazzy t-shirt, a stuffed Cabbit, maybe that cel you’ve been dying to find, that hard-to-find soundtrack, all sorts of awesome stuff – and some of the dealers even take plastic!
AnimeIowa will once again be having a dance that gives you a chance to shake your groove thing. Following the Cosplay, the Main Programming Room will be cleared of most everything breakable, and we will crank up the music for those of you who want to dance the night away. The dance will go until the DJ drops or you cry for mercy.
This is your chance to watch anime until your eyes fall out. AnimeIowa will be running several Video Rooms ’round the clock throughout the convention.
We will once again have numerous panels, workshops, and discussion groups, with lots of opportunities for you to make, do, learn, and discuss cool things.
