21st – 23rd August at the Melbourne Showgrounds
Yes, the Melbourne Anime Festival is here again – Three full days of fun for diehard Anime fans. Now in its tenth year and with a much bigger venue, this year’s festival is sure to be huge.
Events & competitions include – Art shows, Anime music videos, Karaoke, and Video game tournaments. Of all the events on offer, Cosplay is a firm favourite among festival goers. The majority of those attending don a costume of some sort, dressing up as characters from anime and manga, or based on Japanese popular culture, such as Kimono or Gothic Lotita.
The festival also proves to be a shopping extravaganza. The Trader’s Hall is packed with anime/manga related merchandise, including fan traders selling their own original art.
Buy your tickets online or on the day.

From the Festival Directors – “For the first time ever Manifest is running a full day for the Friday and since it falls during the school term we are offering the opportunity for schools to attend as a class field trip. There are going to be many activities set aside for school only access with an educational and/or Japanese cultured theme. Manifest offers a great opportunity for students to further develop their interests in aspects of the Japanese culture, be it the language, or traditional cultural events to the more modern drawings, animations and video games.”
