Milwaukee to host Anime convention in February

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - About 4,000 fans of Japanese animation are expected to attend a convention in Milwaukee in a couple months.

The Anime convention will include costume contests, board game and video game contests, viewing rooms for animated shows, and educational discussions.

The Japanese Animation Association started the group at UW-Milwaukee, and organizers say the group is now branching out.

Anime uses Japanese animation to explore fantasy and science fiction in items ranging from DVD’s to video games to trinkets. The convention is the 6th for the Milwaukee group – and it’s set for February 15th through 17th.
