So we created the college aged anime con. A con that is smart and intellectual during the day. A con whose every panel strives to teach you something, begs you to learn and debate with us, and have you come away more educated. Then, at night we would have some of the wildest, craziest events and parties ever seen at a con. I believe we have succeeded magnificently. Anime Punch is truly a unique experience. I have never once heard anyone tell me that they attended and it felt like just another con. It is a con built on a strong moral fiber who will never ease off its ideals in order to appeal to the masses. We are an anime con and while some people criticize us for not covering every aspect of Japanese culture, frankly you can get that at just about every other con out there. So while we will not teach you how to Para Para better, we are the only place where you can discuss family dynamics in anime, watch an Evangelion puppet show, and then at night attend the hentai olympics. We also do not have simple fan panels either. Instead of a Hetalia fan panel we will discuss Hetalia and how it relates and pertains to actual history as well as the various stereotypes portrayed in the series.
This does not mean we are at all an 18+ convention. Matter of fact the only event we card for is the hentai olympics. We believe art should not be censored and because we put the schedule of events up at least one month before the con, parents have ample opportunity to talk with their kids as to what is and what is not appropriate. We would never make our con an 18+ convention because anime fans are typically mature and intelligent for their age. While they may squee and jump about over certain things, most of them are intelligent, well spoken people when you sit down and talk with them. Which is also why we have a strong belief in giving attendees the benefit of the doubt. Our security is very lax overall and we are not going to spoil your fun if we can avoid it. As long as you aren't hurting an unwilling participant or breaking hotel property, theres no reason to break up what you're doing. We are more likely to simply join in than break something up.
So if you're looking for a con thats different, fun, educational, and knows how to party, check us out. Prereg is only $25 which makes us one of the cheapest cons in the midwest. And if you want anymore info or have any questions, feel free to ask or check out our website.
