AkibaFest Takes Over Little Tokyo This Weekend

Oct 15-16
Little Tokyo
$25 for both days
$15 for each day separately
$30 for both days at the event
Films will have their own admission

We're excited to see what AkibaFest will be like in Little Tokyo this weekend. We wanted a big anime convention in the area for years and Aniplex has pulled it together with a weekend of activities. You'll be able to catch anime films, check out big names in the anime industry exhibitors and meet some special guests.

I'm unsure why, but they got a British announcer for the promo

For me details check out the official events page and schedule.

We're a week away and where it all takes place is till a bit of a mystery. Though, we're mainly guessing a big tent in the JACCC Village Plaza.

 For highlights we recommend the following including the industry panels from Funimation, Aniplex and Sentai.

Hey, maybe they'll announce the Dragonball Super dub over at Funimation, just don't hold your breath.
