It’s time! His ninja training is complete. For this year’s Forum Art Contest, we invite you to join Buu-chan on a very dangerous mission! Of course we have prizes, with a very special one for our first place winner. We also know this…
Buu-chan had trained for years, mastering dozens of martial arts and fusing them into a style uniquely his own. His porcine body was honed to perfection, every part a potential weapon. Ancient masters had taught him how to use the shadows, employ fear, and focus his internal fire to power his attacks. Buu-chan had become ninja, and he knew he was ready to begin the mission.
But we need YOU as an artist to show us the mission! Did Buu-chan find fame as a undetectable assassin? Was he less of a fighter and more of a mysterious lover? Was the mission a comedy rather than an action-packed success? CLICK HERE
for details, to join Buu-chan on his ninja mission, or to watch from a safe distance! But the Legend of Buu-chan the Ninja MUST be told!
Exciting news, all you fantastic cos-players! You can now register for Mainstage Cosplay online. In fact, PLEASE register on-line!
Hello AnimeIowa Congoers!
The AnimeIowa Paneling Team would like to thank everyone for their panel submissions for 2015. We had many fantastic panels submitted to us this year.

We truly appreciate everyone’s time and effort in coming up with these fantastic panels. You all truly make the convention what it is. We would like to remind our wonderful panelists to check the forums for your panel check in times as well as the awesome new perks we have prepared for you. Also keep your eyes pealed for new big events for AnimeIowa 2015!
Once again, thank you all for your submissions. We look forward to seeing all of you at AnimeIowa 2015 and making this year the best year yet!

As announced after last year’s convention, the theme for AnimeIowa 2015 is “Ninjas: Celebrating 10 Years of the LoDN”. It’s hard not to love ninjas, since they’re such an exciting part of Japanese traditional and modern culture. Our staff is hard at work preparing ninja-themed events for the convention, and we invite our attendees to make plans too.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, previously confirmed guest David Matranga will not be able to join us at AnimeIowa in 2015. We are disappointed that he cannot be with us this time, but look forward to working with him in the future!
