On Saturday at around 8:30pm BST, it was announced that AmeChibi would be making its return next year. Fans of Kitacon and AmeCon didn’t get an event this year, but for good reason. Kitacon is currently undergoing major changes, with a lot of the committee changing and AmeCon did an event last year. The usual venue of Warwick University is also undergoing changes, as the venue is currently in the middle of a lot of construction work. Therefore, the only logical conclusion was that 2019 would have no convention from either event. Nevertheless, AmeChibi have announce that they are back. Here’s the information we currently know about the upcoming event.

AmeCon 2018 was a roaring success in my personal opinion, however the event started off with a few technical issues. Having said that, the crew battled on through those issues to be met with a weekend that had both roaring heat and ridiculous rainfall. The parties were fun, the cosplays were incredible, the guests were wonderful and the panels were all in all great fun (at least the ones I saw). Usually at these events, I don’t spend enough time going to events, usually because I’m in costume myself. For the first time ever, I went to an event with no cosplays, which felt strange, but seriously, it was rewarding to be able to look and appreciate the craft of Cosplay and Japanese fandom as someone looking in again. Read on for more on this year’s experience.
I sure do love me a good convention, especially when it is everything that we wanted it to be and then some. It was a weekend of fun, friends and festivities, all within a wonderful three days (and nights) of activities. Join me as I talk about all the highs and lows of AmeCon and my verdict on the anime convention of this summer.
We’re closing in on AmeCon, a celebration of all that is anime that’s taking place in the legendary Warwick University. For Joel and myself, this is a seriously important location for a convention, so join me as I take a look at what’s been announced for AmeCon, as well as what I’m looking forward to and what the GeekOut guys will be up to on this weekend anime loving extravaganza.
