AmeCon Keele Uni, 10th - 12th August 2012

What is AmeCon?

AmeCon is a longstanding UK based convention dedicated to Japanese Anime and Manga, run by fans, for the fans.

Each AmeCon runs for 3 days and is crammed full of great events of all flavours, from cosplay workshops and masquerades, attendee run panels and guests, all the way to fan run skits in the AmeCon Omake.

Every evening we round up with a party, so after you've had a day of geeking out, you can have a drink and dance the night away.

But don't take our word for it, why not join us on the forum or social media? You'll find plenty of friendly like-minded AmeCon regulars to interact with.

You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

So what is AmeChibi?

In Spring 2015 our first AmeChibi will be running and it will be a little different. We're still AmeCon, and we're still dedicated to Japanese Anime and Manga. AmeChibi brings all you expect from AmeCon but the smaller size means a cosier venue, with less of that pesky walking around! So a smaller event, still jam packed with awesome panels, parties and people awaits!

Anime like 'ye olde days',..

Anime like 'ye olde days',.. or y'know, couple of years back.
Before the age of computers, artists had to animate with raw materials. Tools and compounds of Brush, Plastic, Paint and Ink were forged from natural resources.
Deadlines were tight and food was scarce. To access meals animators had to develop fast and efficient methods of replicating 3d effects on a 2d platform.
Cue Cel-animation, many thousands of hand painted clear plastic 'frames' were filmed one by one. A tedious and arduous task, but one necessary to fuel our passion for eastern animation as a genre.

Try your hand at cel painting our very own Ame-chan!
Bring her to life in different colours following a shade chart / Douga.
