The latest news...

Upcoming Events

Greetings everyone! We’ve been working hard on planning out the next year and we’re excited about all the amazing things coming up.

To start off, we are pleased to announce that Akimatsuri will be returning this fall! The event will take place on November 1, 2014, located downtown at UBC Robson Square. Details can be found on our website at www.animeevolution.com/1dayevents/akimatsuri/

Next, J-fest will be returning in the spring to the Nikkei Museum and Cultural Centre on March 7, 2015! Again, you can check out our website www.animeevolution.com/1dayevents/jfest/ for more information.

And last but not least, Anime Evolution. After much discussion it has been decided that AE will return to running on its own. We felt that continuing with Northwest Fan Fest was not the best way to realize our vision for the future and remain committed to bringing you the best anime, Japanese cultural and fan produced content possible.

With that in mind, we are happy to announce that Anime Evolution will return next year on July 17-19, 2015. We will be once again at UBC, but this time we’ll be located in the brand new, much larger Student Union Building set to open in January which will be able to fit the entire convention in a single location! If you want to see just how impressive this new building will be check out this 3D fly-through, courtesy of the UBC Alma Mater Society.
