Animazement

When: May 25-28 2017

In its nineteenth year, the Japanese animation and culture festival Animazement continues to be one of the not-so-secret weapons in the Triangle's growing arsenal of claims to be a geek-culture center. Attracting more than ten thousand guests a year in recent years, it's equal parts community and spectacle, with a combination of panels, dealers, video games, cultural events, and, of course, legions of cosplayers in elaborate costumes, dressed as characters from all varieties of media. Major guests this year include founding Animerica magazine editor and manga translator Trish Ledoux, English-language anime producer Toshi Yoshida, and Dragon Ball Z voice actor Linda Young. It's a feast for fans and a potentially overwhelming introduction for newcomers; keep an eye on www.indyweek.com for our post-coverage.—Zack Smith 

Price: $25-$65
