Our 2015 site has been completely revamped to give our visitors a great level of emotional connection to our convention. While the back end is rather complex, the UI is simple to use and easy to navigate.  If you are a first timer at Anime Matsuri, the website should also help you draw a picture of what to expect, who to see and all the exciting things you can do at the convention.

Thank you for stopping by. Look around and have fun.
