Some rooms, including the Manga Library, Parent Lounge, Video Game Rooms, Dealers’ Room, Artist Alley, Autographs, and Concessions are not listed on this schedule. For the most part, these rooms are either open all day or stick to a very narrow schedule.
Salon D is our primary Arts & Crafts room. The schedule will be updated for that room closer to the convention.
Painted faces on parade… oh wait, wrong one. Come and and watch your fellow fans perform amazing acts and show off even more amazing costumes in their desire to divert you. We welcome all costumes pertaining to Anime, Manga, and Japanese video games, but please read the rules prior to entering, there’s only room at this con for ONE Stripper Reno.
Who says playing dress up is just for the youngin’s? You’ve worked hard and what better place to show that off than a convention? Perform in the masquerade, partake in a game show, meet new people, but always keep in mind that this is a family con and all costumes must abide by convention and state decency laws. And remember, a towel is not a costume.
- Cosplay Death Match
The Cosplay Death Match is simple, two enter and only one leaves, killing each other off until only one is left as the champion. The best part? The audience decides the winners each round.
No theme, no politics, just bloodshed!
What’s better than hanging out, meeting new people, and flashing lights? Setting it all to music! Join us and get down to electrifying music and let yourself dance like no one’s watching. If people can do the Carameldansen in public and not be embarrassed, shaking your hips to a remix about 300 can’t be all that bad.
- Anime Dating Game
Time to help someone find their one true love, or at least a date for the rest of the con. Come watch your favorite anime characters fumble through questions and put their love-life in your hands.
- Cosplay Chess
Chess is back for another year! Come by and see your favorite characters take to the board to decide just who’s better, the theme will be decided soon.
- Sunday Tea Party
Do you like tea and crumpets? How about just tea? Come join us for a tranquil afternoon of tea, goodies, and games. This tea party requires dress up, and a $5 entry fee.
- Anime Music Videos
Oh I know a song that gets on- wrong con. When anime and music collide, sometimes you get epic, sometimes you get downright annoying, but no matter what, it’s entertaining. Use your democratic right as an anime fan to choose whose AMV reigns supreme and stop on by to see the AMV contest. Drop your ballot off and come back at the end of the Masquerade to see if your favorites came out on top and what everyone else seemed to like!
- Panels & Workshops
Everyone has a story to tell, but while many of us don’t possess the grammatical capacity to write a best selling book, we do have the ability to stand in front of a crowd and talk! Want to learn how to cosplay? How to make a great AMV? The best way to plan for a con? Look no further than the panel rooms at AAC, where education and entertainment are our top priorities. If you have a panel idea, sign up for a chance to entertain the masses, and, remember, you learn something new every day and you can have your choice of what you learn.
- Video & Tabletop Gaming
Tired of sitting at home and training your pokemon by yourself? Online newbies making your gaming a chore instead of fun? Join us in our game room for tournaments, Rock Band, an a plethora of other vidya-related entertainment! Take a walk on the wild side and see if you match up to your fellow attendees in Brawl or the most recent fighting game, you’ve got nothing to lose except a few hours and your pride as a Dedede master.
- Anime Screenings
You love anime! If you don’t, why are you at an anime convention? Got some down time, sick of walking the halls and the dealer’s room is closed? Stop by our video room and see what’s playing on the big screen! While we love to entertain you, our staff needs a break from being amusing, so we leave you to the care your parents gave you, the television screen. Hey, if it’s good enough to raise the youth of america, it’s good enough to entertain you for a while.
- Formal Ball
All dressed up and no where to go? Why not join us for Another Anime Cons annual formal event! Come and enjoy a splendid evening of music, fun and dance. Tickets will be at the masquerade/cosplay table Friday of the con, after opening ceremonies.
