Important dates coming. Important dates are coming soon!

First… Tier two of panel submissions begins on Jan. 31st. If you missed getting in your panel during Tier one, you can still get it in and on the schedule during Tier two.
Imagine looking forward to that special panel about your favorite Anime only to find out everyone else thought the same thing; that someone would submit the panel and no one did. It would be such a let down to spend the weekend wanting to discuss characters, costumes, plots, and plot twists. But without a panel to break the ice and bring fans of your special Anime together it may not happen. You can find all the information to help you submit your panel along with the link to the submission form at the Paneling section. of our website.

Second… The last day to register at the Holiday pricing of $45.00 is also Jan. 31st. On Feb. 1st the price increases.
Save some extra money for the Marketplace, food or just for incase by registering for the convention now. Buu Chan can’t wait to see you in July.

And remember… AnimeIowa registrations make great Valentines gifts for your anime love. You can find out more at
