News ANNAU Convention Update
Armageddon: Armageddon Christchurch Expo has been rescheduled for July 2nd and 3rd at Addington Raceway, Christchurch. Initially scheduled for early April, the event was postponed after the Christchurch earthquake on 22nd February caused extensive damage to the city; Armageddon's offices were damaged in the quake and its Hobart event was also postponed as a result. Due to the change in date and venue the Christchurch Expo will not feature international guests or certain events but other events will be available, including anime screenings, traders and cosplay.
Armageddon also revealed the guest line-up for its Melbourne expo taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of October this year. Anime-related guests include Kyle Herbert (Dragon Ball Z, BLEACH), Troy Baker (Naruto Shippūden) and Steven Blum (Cowboy Bebop, Naruto).
