Minami Con II

Hilton National, Portsmouth

Sunday 21st July 1996

10AM - 10PM

Minami Anime 'the Club with added Kawai' & FUTURanime fanzine are pleased to announce our second anime convention here in the South of Engiand.

As usual we aim to show a wide selection of Japanese Animation with an emphasis on the 'CUTER' side of anime rather than the sex & tentacles predominant in UK releases.

The venue is the Hilton National, Portsmouth a modern hotel with plenty of car parking and situated next to the M27 only 1 mile from the A3(M). Portsmouth Town Centre & Railway station are five miles away, approximately 15 minutes by taxi.

We will be bringing you twelve hours of non-stop Anime in 3 Video Rooms (2 using projection systems), a Dealer Room for you to lighten your wallets, Art Room, Model Room and a Fan Room for you to meet fellow fans. Each Video Room wlll have a different program running and we plan to have a 50/50 split betwecn old favourites (i.e. Ranma, Maison Ikkoku, Orange Road) and latest releases (i.e. Macross 7, DNA2, Tenchi TV), most items will be subbed with some original Japanese only. The anime shown will be items not commercially available in the UK at the time of the convention.

We also hope to announce details of our Guest of Honour & other guests in the near future.

With all this Anime and a few other surprises still to be announced how can you afford not to be there?

So how much is this going to cost you? Only 10 per person if you book before the end of March '96.

The is a non-profit making event run by fans for fans so to enable us to bring you the best show we can, we need you to book as early as possible. The more of you who do so the more we can put on for you!

We wll be issuing a progress report to all con members in April giving further details planned. For those of you who wish to offer your services and become a honoured Gopher there will be a form in the progress report for you to complete.

If you have any queries please drop us a line (with an S.A.E. please) and we will be glad to give you all the assistance we can.

We look forward to hearing from you.
