A three day anime convention celebrating Japanese Art, Animation, Games, and Culture

Get Involved: Panels

When you think of an anime convention then certain key events come to mind. There’s an opening ceremony, a closing ceremony, usually a party or two, and maybe some screenings. But what other events are there close to the heart of the convention? Well it’s this week’s topic, of course, panels!

Meet the Committee: The Vice President

This week as our article we're focussing on me.  Me, me, me, me, me.




...oh, I have to type more.  Yes, this is the profile of me, the Vice President of Hibanacon.  Hopefully after this article you'll understand a little bit more about another of the minds behind the convention.

March Update

Hello again to you, the Bright Sparks of Hibanacon. This week the committee is freshly back from a fantastic Minamicon, we’d like to give them a big thank you for all their kind words, advice, and the opportunity to speak to the attendees about Hibanacon! We’d also very much like to thank the Tokonatsu committee and the members of the former Auchinawa committee for their advice too!

Meet the Committee: The Events Officer

Gather around everyone. We realise the committee for this event has been a bit “shrouded in mystery” so we thought we’d have a little bit of a talk about who the committee are! We’ve all been con-goers for a decade or more, and our first article is a profile of the Events Officer who's managed a good innings of 11 years of attending conventions so far!

Get Involved: Gophering

There’s a grand tradition of anime conventions, and it’s what makes them tick. Without these people a convention simply could not run, or if it did it would be, at best, a complete shambles. Who are we talking about? Gophers.
