Animecon is the first and, at the moment, the only big anime event in
Finland. Animecon has been arranged once before, together with Finncon 99
in Turku. The programme for the previous Animecon included among other
things panels and lectures, anime presentations, an art exhibition, role
playing games, and a cosplay contest.
This year we are going to include in Animecon as many genres as we can
in order to provide the visitors with many different experiences. The
programme will include panels, lectures, presentations, video shows, a
cosplay contest, an art exhibition, a quiz, and programme by the guest of
honour. The Guest of Honor will be Jonathan Clements from England. He
has translated many mangas and animes, written several books, and even
voice acted in a few animes.
The main organizer of Animecon is Turku Anime Society. Additional
Animecon is part of the Finncon X - Eurocon
