This weekend, lovers of animation will convene in downtown Minneapolis for three days at AniMinneapolis, an event packed with things to see and do. There will be panel talks and lectures by artists, voice actors, and writers working on shows and games like Sailor MoonStar Trek: Enterprise, and Final Fantasy VII. If you’re seeking gaming sessions, you have options ranging from high-tech video games to low-tech tabletop. In addition to an artists’ alley, there will be plenty of chances to get crafty, whether your interest lies in Lolita looks, ita bags, custom art dolls, or general cosplay. Dance parties happen each night, and grownups may also find fun at the Pixel Vixens Burlesque Show, the intro to hentai talk, nudist meetups, and 18-plus bad fanfiction readings.
