Another Anime Con is very pleased to welcome the return of a number of veteran AAC guests for 2015, including J. Michael Tatum, Chris Cason, and Christopher Smith.
In addition, we would like to welcome Josh Grelle to his first-ever AAC appearance. We are also glad to see the return of Martin “LittleKutiboh” Billany, who last appeared during our 2013 convention.
Want to know about our guests? Who they are? What they’ve done? Why they’re awesome? Okay…you’ll have to attend AAC 2015 to find out the answer to the last question, but everything else can be found on our Guest Page!
Myths & Legents

LeetStreet Boys will be performing their first live show in almost 3 years at Another Anime Con 2015. The group is most well-known for their 2008 hit single and music video “Yuri The Only One,” went on to record 3 albums, LeetStreet Boy, Otaku Hearts and L3g3nds, and perform the OP for the dating sim Roommates. LeetStreet Boys announced an official hiatus in 2014, and this will be their first live show since the hiatus, as well as their currently only confirmed performance anywhere in 2015.
Pre-registration for Another Anime Convention 2015 is now open. Please check out the registration page for more information.
It is with deep regret that today we mourn the passing of Taga Pixie/Aimee Brocato, one of our AAC family. We were blessed to have Taga not only in our Artist Alley, but also in our Masquerade as the winner of our Mixed Media Craftsmanship category in the Advanced Division. All of us on Another Anime Convention staff send their thoughts and prayers to family, friends and loved ones of Taga.
This years charity has gone to the dogs… and cats, and hamsters, and birds. Have you guessed who it is yet?
