Anime-zing! 2020 – Iowa loves anime!

Anime-zing! is three days of anime at the RiverCenter (136 E 3rd Street Davenport) this Friday Jul 31 through Sunday Aug 2. This event allows Anime fans to wear costumes, make friends, eat ramen, meet voice actors, cosplay, buy stuff, shop and have an AMAZING time!

Expect a jam-packed 3-day convention filled with cosplay, vendors, artists, anime screenings, panels, dealers, tutorials, lessons, workshops, voice acting, guests, autographs, video gaming, tabletop gaming, karaoke, and so much more.

Here are just a few of the cool things to expect at Anime-zing! 2020:

ConSweet – Filled with unlimited free ramen and rice for all attendees, plus free soda! Anime-zing! is working on making this bigger and better this year, so that you can have a more and more fun convention on less and less money!

Video Gaming – An epic game room with your favorite games, and tournaments held all weekend long, some with special prizes.

Karaoke – Sing your heart out with your fellow fans and discover a cool way to make friends even if you’re not the best singer.

Anime Screenings – An Anime Convention should remember the anime, and we make sure to! In the video room you can see everything from new shows to old favorites, and it’s a great way to pass the time between panels (oh, wait, there usually isn’t any time between panels).

Special Guests – Guests range from voice actors to musicians and beyond, and they bring you inside knowledge from the world of anime and Japanese culture (and sometimes even video gaming and sci-fi).

Get your tickets at https://qcanimezing.com/. The earlier you get them, the cheaper they are. Most attendees register in advance to save time at the door, but you can also get your tickets at the convention. Early registration is highly recommended to get the best deal and get in faster!

The schedule can be found at https://qcanimezing.com/schedule. The schedule includes exact panel, workshop, Q&A session, and autograph session times, as well as the times for video game tournaments and tabletop tournaments, and more.
