Started in 2011, Florida Anime Experience is a fan convention designed to focus specifically on anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture. The “No Halo in our Game Room” policy extends through the DNA of our event. Many anime conventions in and around Florida have, in recent years, diluted themselves by incorporating elements of comic books, science fiction, steam punk, and video games that have little to nothing to do with Asian based popular culture.
We’re looking to change that.
The Florida Anime Experience team has worked hard from day one to design an anime convention that caters to fans of classic movies OVAs, and TV series along with newer titles for younger Otaku. In year one, we were proud to bring the voice of Cowboy Bebop’s Spike Speigel to Florida: Steve Blum.
For year two, we were honored with an amazing accomplishment in fandom… Terri Hawkes, the English speaking voice of Sailor Moon, made her first ever anime convention appearance in the United States at Florida Anime Experience 2012.
YEAR THREE: Naruto from Naruto
Florida Anime Experience… putting “ANIME” back into anime conventions!
