Animeland was founded in 2007 by a group of friends that wanted a more
interactive anime experience. All the anime conventions they'd been to
were a great deal of fun and pretty educational, but there wasn't enough
hands on...and so Animeland was born!
The goal of Animeland is to bring the culture of anime and Asian culture
to the masses in a way that they can put their hands on it. Not just sit
in a room and watch it happen around them. We've placed Animeland in five
cities in the country so far, and plan to grow in more places in the coming
months and years.
We felt there were too many factions, too much politics, not enough fun.
It's not about bringing the biggest guests or having the largest show.
It's about bringing guests that want to interact with their fans. It's
about an environment where if you're new to anime or conventions in general
you'll be comfortable and able to enjoy what we have to offer. It's about
being a convention veteran and remembering how much you enjoyed the closeness
of an otaku family. Have a panel you'd like to see run? Tell us! Want
to bring out the kids to enjoy some games? Bring them on!
Would you like to see an Animeland in a city near you? Let
us know! Thank you so much for your interest in our show!
