AmeCon Keele Uni, 10th - 12th August 2012

What is AmeCon?

AmeCon is a longstanding UK based convention dedicated to Japanese Anime and Manga, run by fans, for the fans.

Each AmeCon runs for 3 days and is crammed full of great events of all flavours, from cosplay workshops and masquerades, attendee run panels and guests, all the way to fan run skits in the AmeCon Omake.

Every evening we round up with a party, so after you've had a day of geeking out, you can have a drink and dance the night away.

But don't take our word for it, why not join us on the forum or social media? You'll find plenty of friendly like-minded AmeCon regulars to interact with.

You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

So what is AmeChibi?

In Spring 2015 our first AmeChibi will be running and it will be a little different. We're still AmeCon, and we're still dedicated to Japanese Anime and Manga. AmeChibi brings all you expect from AmeCon but the smaller size means a cosier venue, with less of that pesky walking around! So a smaller event, still jam packed with awesome panels, parties and people awaits!

AmeCon 2012 Comes To An End
