Anime Oasis Compile 2014

Continues through Monday, May 26

by

Even if you're not an anime enthusiast, you're probably familiar with the art form of Japanese animation. You've seen traces of it in Sailor Moon or Pokemon, either during your childhood or your child's childhood. But those are only scratching the surface; there is much more to anime, and you can immerse yourself in it and all its accompanying glory at the Anime Oasis.

You'll have the opportunity to engage in cosplay chess, a fashion show, a costumed dance and an anime music video contest. If that doesn't convince you, maybe wiffle ball, roller disco or speed dating will get you there. According to Anime Oasis' popular Facebook page (facebook.com/pages/Anime-Oasis), the fun begins Friday at 10 a.m. with full programming starting by early that afternoon. Saturday through Monday, events will begin by about 11 a.m. each day.

Everyone from noob to the anime super-fan is welcome.
