    Kawaii-Kon 2010 

    Hawaii’s biggest and baddest anime convention is happening this weekend at the Hawaii Convention Center.

    So, if you’re hitting up the mall and you find a bunch of people dressed up and walking around with swords… now you know why.

    But, besides the cosplay contest and the annual karaoke contest, there’s a video game tournament and panels on some of the hot button issues in the world of anime.  I’m totally feeling the Gore Effects workshop and how they make injuries look so real.

    Also, check out the video game tournament for a big battle on a number of games, including Street Fighter IV, Tekken 6, and Super Smash Bros.

    This all goes down this Friday (9am-12am), Saturday (9am-12am), and Sunday (9am-630pm) at the Hawaii Convention Center.

    Kawaii Kon 2009 


    Hawaii’s premiere Anime Convention and Conference is back for another weekend of mayhem and mischief.

    Going down today and lasting until Sunday afternoon, the Hawaii Convention Center will be teeming with anime characters, art, table top gaming, video game tournaments, and karaoke.

    Oh, did I also mention people will be dressing up for this?

    Oh yes, that kid with the big sword… probably going to this event.  And his friends carrying the Rock Band drumset? Probably there for the Rock Band tournament happening Friday and Saturday night.

    Well, if this is anything like the past year’s events, then this is gonna be pretty epic.  So, expect hearty discussions on all things manga and anime this weekend.  Otherwise, you’ll just be crushed under the weight of too much Naruto.  Believe it.

    For ticket prices and more information, check out the official Kawaii Kon page.

    Kawaii-Kon this weekend 

    No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That really was Goku walking down the street with the Fullmetal Alchemist.

    The show of shows, Kawaii-Kon, is back for another installment. The Hawaii Convention Center will be teeming with anime enthusiasts, collectors of all shapes and sizes and more Cosplay than I would like to imagine in one setting. But, they’re having fun with it, so who am I to knock, really?

    This year’s annual anime convention promises to be the biggest yet. They’ve got an action packed three days of booths, competitions and displays to keep even the most jaded anime fan enthralled for a few hours.

    So, if you see tons of kids floating around Ala Moana this weekend with obscenely sized swords, you know why.

    The convention starts this Friday at Noon and goes all weekend until Sunday at 4pm.
