EirtaKon - Irish Anime Convention

Fri 10th Jun 2005

EirtaKon - Irish Anime ConventionAn Irish Anime convention is bringing together a variety of groups and societies for a weekend of anime fun. John Doyle reports:

The convention will be taking place in Dublin, on the DCU's campus, between Friday 11th till Sunday 13th of November. Price wise it will be 10 euro for a full weekend ticket or 6 euro for a day's enterence. There will be free refreshements throughout the convention - or at least till they run out. Also depending on number the convention tshirt may be included in this price.

To get this off with a bang we have enlisted the aid of as many groups around Ireland as we could think of! Each will be adding a little to the convention and some running mini games - so if you've grown bored of hours of anime there will be _something_ that wil lnterest you, Currenly participating we have

DCU Anime & Manga Soc - (The society who'll be hosting the event, )DCU Japanese Soc, DCU Games Soc, DCU STOCS, Eirtaku.com, Anime.ie, Trinity DUCSS, CIT Anime Soc, UCD SF Soc, DIT SF Soc, Maynooth's Omega Soc, QUB's Dragon Slayers

Event wise we have screenings, ofcourse, themed rooms ( 'old school' ) and special screenings - to sum up, LOTS of anime, from an Irish view anyway :) Vendors will be set up alongside stands for our associates who will be running mini events. In the middle of the hall there will be games run by the DCU's GamesSoc STOCS socities - from MangaManga, BESM to PS2's and GameCubes by projector. Also Giant Robot Melee will be making an appearence.

Being in the student center there is a SPAR, a canteen around the corner and two College Bars :) Also across the road we have EuroSpar, chippers - the usual stuff ^_^ also pizza delivery to the door. We have also got a brand spanking new radio station so be prepared to listen to ConRadio. The studio will also be the site for our Anime Fandubbing Compeition - how good are you? This is being hosted by the DCU Media Production Society.

We will be having an exabition around the center showing off Fan Art, anime history, a Japanese Bazaar etc! You will also see AMV competitions - Open category and College category. Cosplay, cosplay competitions, Table Quizes, Charity Raffle - and lots more.
