If you don't have these words etched into your heart, its time you started watching Avatar (seriously, get with the program):

Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished...

I am a huge fan of animation. I have really diverse tastes and I'll give anything a day in court. After watching 1000s of hours of animation I can say confidently that Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the very best cartoons ever made. And my favorite character in the series is a seriously tough, independent, and sassy little earth bender named Toph.

The voice of Toph, Jessie Flower, will be coming to Lubbock for Anime Lubbock. Excuse me while I "Beatles" scream. Jessie is known for being a really wonderful and fun convention guest. I cannot wait to meet her. Fun fact: she also voiced
Chaca in The Emperor's New School and has done voice work for other favorites like Meet the Robinsons.

Jessie Flower will be joining other awesome voice actors like Jason Liebrecht, Christina Kelly, and more. Anime Lubbock will also have many exciting activities and events like a cosplay contest, vendor and artist halls, specialty programming and much more.

Anime Lubbock will be held at the MCM Elegante Hotel (801 Avenue Q), June 11- 13. There are many ticketing options to suit you, but VIP passes are going fast so hop on it.  Hotel memberships are a great way to get a completely immersive experience.

Want to work the con? Exhibitor tables are waitlisted but there are very few spots left for artists' tables, so hurry and book it if that's you.

Anime Lubbock is by weebs and for weebs, so put on your best cosplay and come have fun with people who are just as excited as you are to celebrate the best in anime and animation. And hey, even if you are not (yet) a weeb, come soak up some awesome energy from the friendliest fandom you'll ever meet.
