Mark Takeshi Ota at AnimeCon 2021

The Event Plaza is now known as the Exp Plaza!

The Exp Plaza is the place to be to walk in and have fun. From table top games to continuous activities like Cosplay Target, you can participate at any time for most of the activities. For others, such as card game competitions, you might have to sign up.

The main reason for this change is to distinguish between the scheduled activities of the Festival Events (lectures, workshops, etc) and the walk-in ones of the Exp Plaza.

So, the same Plaza, just with a new name.

Have you got 11 and 12 December 2021 marked on your calendars?

While we're still enjoying our summer holidays and anime beach episodes, we're also looking towards December. That's because we are preparing AnimeCon's Christmas Edition at De Broodfabriek in Rijswijk (hopefully all safe and sound!).

You can join our Discord and Facebook Event to stay up to date for when the ticket sale launches.
Rijswijk, De Broodfabriek, 11-12 December 2021.

Soon it will be the most wonderful time of the year: AnimeCon!

As you all know, this time it will be the Christmas special. This Christmas Special will be two days, Saturday and Sunday December 11th and 12th 2021.

Participate in the cosplay competitions and other contests. Visit our lectures and workshop. Have fun with friends at the Exp Plaza. No more online shopping: get your favourite merch at the Dealer Room. And of course, play the latest games and indie games by Dutch developers at the Game Room.

Tickets go on sale on October 1st in the afternoon.

Can you all break our new website?!

*Please note that security and health measures are subject to change, depending on the situation when the convention takes place. All visitors must meet the (health) requirements of the Dutch government that apply during our festival, including any rule changes that are announced shortly before or during the event.

Due to the current situation, WCS is again postponed to next year. But, to be able to share our love of cosplay, the WCS organisation has created a new competition, World Cosplay Championship Video Division.
And so, AnimeCon hosts the Dutch preliminaries for this global championship on the 12th of June during AnimeCon @ Home. The winner of the preliminaries will compete against other countries to become the grand champions in a contest of cosplay videos, produced and edited by the cosplayers themselves.


You can sign up using http://bit.ly/WCSVideo


Simplified rules:
2 cosplayers will create a video of a maximum of 2.5 minutes.
The two members of the team must wear costumes belonging to the same Japanese manga, anime, video game or tokusatsu work. Also, these must be handmade by the contestants themselves.
The video must be made and edited by the cosplayers themselves, but they are allowed to have help, for example with filming and special effects, etc.


The entries must be finalised and sent to AnimeCon by the 30th of May, so they can be judged and prepared for the show
