Animazement | Special Events | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: May 22-24 2015



RALEIGH CONVENTION CENTER—The annual Japanese animation and culture gathering Animazement has become a destination event for downtown Raleigh, attracting thousands of anime fans each year. While you might not know why the voice of Frieza on Dragon Ball Z or the founding editor of Animerica magazine are packing rooms full of fans, it's worth going to experience the vibrant anime community—by which we mean countless elaborate cosplayers, dances and much more. It's a chance to learn something about anime and Japan—or at least find a decent stuffed Totoro in the dealer's room. There will also be panels, art shows and autograph sessions. Special pre-con event: 6 p.m.–midnight (Thurs.). Convention: 9 a.m.–2:30 a.m. (Fri. and Sat.); 9 a.m.–4 p.m. (Sun.), $25–$65, 500 S. Salisbury St., Raleigh, 919-831-6011, —Zack Smith
