Why go?
If the paragraph above doesn’t make you excited, realize this.** Anime Expo is the biggest animecon, and for some of you, its in your backyard.** Even if you aren’t that interested in anime or manga, it is a once in a lifetime style experience. There is a console gaming room where you can play games as well as tons to do, such as concerts, panels, autograph sessions, and screenings of anime.

]Its a party. And its a fun one. I recommend that anyone who can, come for at least one day.

**There will be tournaments for the following games.
Rules and more info at

**Tatsunoko vs Capcom
Melty Blood

**Tekken 6
Guilty Gear

Super Smash Brothers Brawl

**Super Street Fighter 4

Okay, I want to go!
To compete you will need an Anime Expo badge of admission
You can sign up for any tournament starting on Thursday at 10 AM when the game room opens. The entry fee for each tournament will be $5 (cash only)

Please come. While the tournament may not be mahvel, or exactly the way you want it to be run, its a good chance for those who like anime to get out and enjoy their interest with other people. The tournaments are more of a bonus on top of coming out for the con.

Sucks that SSF4 is going to be on sunday… July 4th while a vast majority will be celebrating with their families. I love SSF4 as much as the next person but BBQ + Fireworks + at home SSF4 sessions > Anime Expo Tourney haha. I really would like to make it out to this though.
