Anime in Northwest Ohio invites everyone to attend Animarathon V at Bowling Green State University, on Saturday, April 14th, 2007. Admission is totally free! Animarathon is a one-day mini-convention featuring multiple screening rooms, a dealer's room, artist's alley, a cosplay (costume) contest, fan panels, games, fan parodies, a big raffle, and more! Also this year, we will have participation from Flash Flash Revolution, and the Bowling Green Gaming Society will have a room for board games and roleplaying games.
The events begin at 10 a.m. and run until midnight. Registration is free on location; there is no pre-registration.
The event will be held at Olscamp Hall, stretching over 13 rooms, located around a central lounge area. Some of our special features include a cosplay contest; Japanese arcade machines; a Nintendo DS lounge; and a live-action, oldskool RPG-styled battle simulation game called Cos-Arena, where players act out their character's attacks. The Dealer's Room can satisfy any shopping hunger you have for anime, Japanese merchandise, or Pocky; and stop by our fan panels and karaoke session for some interactive fun. Don't forget our big raffle where tickets are three for a dollar, and you can win anything from DVDs, to action figures, pins, manga, video games, card games, and many more great prizes.
