Animethon 20!

We are celebrating our 20th anniversary this year with the theme of Seijin-Shiki (Coming of Age Ceremony), a Japanese celebration for when someone turns 20 and has officially come of age. They would be recognized as a fully-matured and contributing member of society. Similarly, Animethon has been maturing year after year with the support of staff, sponsors, volunteers & most importantly, fans. Thanks for your support as we celebrate our own Seijin-shiki to celebrate our on-going development in delivering an amazing anime festival.
