This three-day anime convention will honor the world of Japanese animation with complete sensory overload. This is definitely a good thing. Throughout the weekend, guests will be flaunting their most awesome cosplay gear, playing video games while amped on energy drinks, and watching movies on continuous loop. There will also be a masquerade ball featuring costume and performance contests, a nerd rap concert by YTCracker and Dr. Awkward, workshops on topics ranging from learning Japanese to venturing into the world of Lolita-wear, and chess featuring live, costumed pieces. Shop for vendors' wares, meet fun new people (including celebrity guests), and choose from over 50 different scheduled events. Visit www.animinneapolis.com for a complete list of happenings.
