Each year, Florida Anime Experience invites a group to come in to design and run our anime viewing room. This year, we’re thrilled to have one of Florida’s newest conventions, UmiCon, take over for us in 2013.
Umicon Daytona (www.umicondaytona.com) is an anime, gaming and comics convention right on beautiful Daytona Beach.The main purpose of Umicon is to celebrate and promote American and Japanese video gaming, Japanese animation also known as anime, manga which are Japanese graphic novels, cosplay which is the act of creating and modeling costumes based on characters from Japanese and American media, and the melding of Japanese and American pop-culture. Their event takes place September 6-8, 2013.
The UmiCon team is currently building the showing schedule and we’ll post it once it’s confirmed. For now, here are the viewing room hours:
FRIDAY: 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM
SATURDAY: 10:00 AM to 12:00 Midnight
SUNDAY: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
