Cal Animage Alpha, the anime club here at UC Berkeley is holding a convention on Saturday, Oct. 10th in the Valley Life Sciences Building on campus from 10am to 8pm, which will include fighting tournaments throughout the day. This is especially great for those who are looking for some early anime convention action to get some of the rust off for later events.
Entrance for the convention itself is $10 and will give you access to the tournaments, the dealers hall, showing room, panels, and musical performances. Feel free to dress in your favorite fighting game characters for this event.
