18:00 - 19:00

San Jose Convention Center
150 West San Carlos Street, San Jose, California 95113
Come celebrate the rich history of Japanese entertainment culture!
This is a hugely open gathering for those of you / us who cosplay as characters from the previous century. Essentially if your cosplay character appears in Anime, Manga, Video Games or Live Action (resident beings of Nebula M78 are welcome) that began prior to 2001, then this is the gathering for you! Although I like to have a decidedly Japanese lean to this gathering, it is not completely exclusive.
Day: Friday, May 25th (Day 1)
Time: 6PM — 7PM
Meeting Place (MP): Same as Location, G3
Location (L): Gatherings G3, Downstairs Tiered Platform (on the lower floor, the wooden steps close to video) this is a NEW location for 2018!
This will be… our third year hosting! Please note we will be at a slightly different location than last year — turn right from the main Convention Center entrance, and head down the stairs to the video rooms on the lower level. We will be on the downstairs wooden tiered platforms.
Gatherings G3 is the wooden tiered platform area along the stairs that lead down to the video rooms on the lower level. This location will give us more space to spread out, even lighting, lower stair platforms, and a protected backdrop wall. It's all around more convenient and if it works out well I would like it to become the new permanent location for the gathering.
Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering/Event this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed. Forums Link:,21285.0.html
