Anime Lubbock is coming to the Hub City June 11th-13th, 2021 at MCM Elegante Hotel (801 Avenue Q).

This new convention is being brought to us but folks who are local convention pros, so I'm very excited to attend what I am sure will be a very successful event. It's 'for weebs by weebs,' and I can attest that the dynamic duo bringing you this con are in fact weebs. (Source: I am a bit of one myself and I can smell my kind.)

From the Anime Lubbock website:

Have you been to an anime or comic convention in West Texas? There's a good chance you've already met us! We've owned and directed West Texas conventions for years and hope you enjoy our newest event. Anime Lubbock is owned by a local cosplay couple with years of experience directing many of your favorite West Texas events! We're excited to continue the tradition of hosting amazingly fun weekends for fans.

The event promises special guests, social events, performances, artists, vendors, cosplay contests, and more fun surprises. The hardcore are encouraged to stay at MCM Elegante overnight during the convention to take advantage of bonus events.

Much of the convention, like who the special guests are, is currently TBA, but we promise to keep you updated as soon as we find out. All levels of memberships are available at really reasonable rates, with the basic weekend membership at only $40. Applications are being accepted for volunteers, which is a really wonderful experience for the dedicated and hard-working, but be sure to apply asap as those positions tend to fill up quickly. If you're an artist or a vendor, you'll also want to get those applications in as soon as possible.

I have desperately missed conventions, and I'm delighted this one is on the way. Now I have to fret over which cosplay to build.
