Montreal, Quebec, Canada (June 18, 2006) - This first edition of
(June 10th and 11th, 2006) was a great success! Although convention
organizers had initially expected a total attendance of between 500 to
people, otakus everywhere united in Montreal to enjoy anime and

smoothly as it did. Finally, we would like to thank all attendees:
