A response to DragonCon 2010!!
Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA) is a three-day Japanese Animation and comics convention held annually in Atlanta, Georgia.
AWA 16 will be held September 17 - 19 2010, at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel and Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
Since 1995, AWA has become one of the most popular Japanese Animation conventions in the United States.AWA has a wide variety of events including video room showings of Japanese cartoons from new releases and titles going back to the 1960's, a dealer's room with retailers who sell Japanese animation and manga related merchandise such as toys, videos, audio CD's and artwork, workshops, panel discussions on various topics including the current trends in Japan and how they will affect the United States, a costume contest where attendees dress up as their favorite anime or manga character, and scores of guests who have worked or currently are working in the industry.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you at the convention!
To anyone who would like to go to perhaps promote ZS, please let me know. I intend to be there in my ZS Gear at least one day. But please please please please read the rules and regulations of AWA. I'll be working security for the second year in a row, and I really don't want to kick anyone or report anyone for some kind of violation. So please, talk to me!
