Anime in Iowa: Anime-zing! is Almost Here-- July 14th-16th!

Prepare to be enchanted, as an animation-entertainment event jumps onto the scene right here in Iowa.

Anime-zing! is a three-day long convention for fans of Japanese animation art. With a focus on anime, there are things for all ages to do and see here. From meeting your favorite voice actors to watching anime on a big screen, or to meet up with fellow fans, anime conventions are a delight. 

And then there’s the cosplay. People notoriously spend a lot of time and effort on making costumes of their beloved favorite characters, transforming themselves into works of art. There's even a must-see cosplay contest!

There’ll be fan-lead panels and discussions about all things anime. All of them are free to attend once you buy your pass. There’s will also be a dealer’s hall where you can go shop for merchandise.

To top it all off, there will be a formal ball and a rave dance, perfect for those who want to mingle and have a good time after daytime events.

You can catch Anime-zing! this year on July 14th through the 16th, at the River Center and Radisson Hotel in Davenport. If you’re planning on attending, register while tickets last. Buy soon and a weekend pass is just $40!
