Anime Park 2019

Welcome to Anime Park! We are a small convention located in Canton, Michigan one of the only known cons run by only high schoolers! Here at Anime Park we like to connect otakus  in an event we like to call an anime convention. Anime Park offers most things that larger, more established cons provide, like our dealers room, artists alley, a maid cafe, panels and so much more! The best thing about about Anime Park is that admission is by donation, and any profit we make goes right back into making this convention even better!

Gene Ha (Mae, Top 10) Audio Interview 2019

Once again, I interviewed, Eisner Award winning artist, Gene Ha. We met up for breakfast with the plans of knocking out a quick interview before his meet and greet at Fanfare-Kalamazoo. One question lead to another and we ended up having a casual conversation about manga, metal, comics that he is currently reading, and the current status of his comic, Mae. Put this one on in the background and enjoy this Bonus DLC interview with the massively cool Gene Ha.

Drunk on Comics Podcast 2019 Interview with Joe, of MIGeekScene, Pt 2 (NSFW)

Here’s part 2 of the Drunk on Comics interview with Joe (aka the guy who runs this site aka ME). We threw out the typical business spiel type interview and we focused on the stuff that I really wanted to talk about last time. We talk about video games, VGM soundtracks, comic books, manga, anime, pro wrestling, and a slew of other things. You can learn a lot about me in this long interview. My favorite “interview” of the year, so far. Enjoy.

2018 Spring Year in Review Pt 2

These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. They are a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. It’s a director’s commentary of my adventures during the year of 2018 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

Con Ja Nai XXV

Come join us for a momentous milestone in Animania history: Con Ja Nai’s 25th anniversary!

That’s right! For 25 glorious years, Con Ja Nai has been (not) a con that has brought many people together, from the community, through their shared love of anime. Throughout these 25 years, we have seen many familiar faces, new faces, and have made many memories with them all. We are proud that CJN has lasted so long, and we thank everyone who has come in past years for making this con popular enough to carry on for more than two decades.

That being said, Con Ja Nai XXV will be happening Saturday, March 16th at the Modern Languages Building on the University of Michigan campus. We, at Animania, have been working very hard this year to prepare a con that is bigger and better than ever! Come enjoy various panels, vendors, games, our wonderful maid cafe, and anime!
