Anime in Northwest Ohio invites everyone to attend Animarathon 4 at
Bowling
Green State University, on Saturday, April 8th, 2006. 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, karaoke, games, fan parodies, a big raffle, and more!



The events begin at 10 a.m. and run until midnight. Registration is
free on
location; there is no pre-registration. The first 100 to arrive and
register receive Nintendo DS straps and screen cleaners featuring Jack
Frost, courtesy of Atlus USA.



The event will be held at Olscamp Hall, stretching over 10 rooms,
located
around a central lounge area. Some of our special features include a
cosplay contest with awards in three skill level categories, in both
craftsmanship and performance; screenings of This is Otakudom and
S.T.E.A.M.; 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 a box set of DVDs, to
action
figures, to a giant plushy, pins, manga, video games, card games, and
many
more great prizes.
