Teen fans of anime and manga will converge on Saturday, October 15, for the Dayton Metro Library’s annual AniMangaCon! The free celebration of Japanese animation (anime) and cartooning (manga) takes place 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the new Northwest Branch Library, 2410 Philadelphia Drive in Dayton.
“AniMangaCon is a great opportunity for like-minded kids from across the Miami Valley to get together and have fun for free,” said Steve Moser, Dayton Metro Library Teen Services Coordinator. “For teen anime and manga fans, this is the place to be.”
AniMangaCon features cosplay, crafts, contests and prizes.
“Holding the event in our fantastic new Northwest Branch Library this year gives us opportunities to use the new gaming technology and spaces,” said Moser.
“The Pancake Art Contest is a new activity this year,” said Moser. “Teens can use multicolored pancake batter to create their favorite characters, then enter them in the contest – or eat them!”
