From the same dedicated staff and volunteers who've held Animaritime since 2004, comes Animinitime: two one-day events with the purpose of continuing to bring the best of anime and gaming to the Maritimes. A family friendly event with lots to do and see, we strive to make sure there's something for every fan, new and old. We hope to see you there in 2010!
Haligonians notice anything familiar on the cover of this week’s edition of The Coast? With Animinitime coming up this weekend we’ve made the cover – snazzy manga effects and all! If you’re unable to pick up a physical copy of the free weekly publication, you can check it out digitally online as well.
Also via The Coast we’re pleased to officially announce our attendance number: 500! That means that 500 fans from around the province (and some beyond!) have pre-registered for Animinitime Halifax, selling our show out a month in advance. A big thanks again to everyone for the support and enthusiasm and we can’t wait to see all of you there!
Only 2 days left until Animinitime! And don’t forget about Saturday’s pre-con Super Picnic which will include the popular cosplay masquerade and lots of friendly faces to hang out with.
Article Correction Note: The Cowboy Bebop movie event will take place on the evening of Saturday, April 24 (midnight) – not Friday as published. Tickets are available at Strange Adventures, the Super Picnic and at the Parklane theatre a half-hour prior to the show, while supplies last.
Eager to know what kind of events we’ll be having at Animinitime Halifax? Ponder no longer! You can now head on over to the Events page for the complete schedule. Descriptions of each event will be available in your registration books upon picking up your badge at the convention with the book’s handy in-book schedule as well.
Along with our event schedule we also have two new confirmed vendors for our Halifax event – Quantum Frontier and BigPfeiffer! Both are returning vendors from Animaritime 2009 and we’re thrilled to have them back for Animinitime. You can check out our vendors page for the current list of vendors attending.
And lastly (for today!), our thanks go out to two new sponsors for Animinitime – Funimation and Tokyopop! Expect lots of goodies from them at the conventions from both our events and vendors.
Only 11 days left until Animinitime Halifax!
Registration for Animinitime Halifax closed at midnight this past Wednesday (March 31st, 2010) and we’re excited to announce a sold-out show! A big thank you to everyone who registered and we look forward to seeing everyone there for what promises to be a fun time! A special thank you goes out to Strange Adventures who played a huge role in ensuring registration for the event was as easy and convenient as possible for our attendees.
Please note that as previously stated in the event of sold-0ut badges, this means there will be no at-con registration available for Animinitime.
Tickets for our midnight showing of Cowboy Bebop the movie are still available and our Halifax Super Picnic remains an open to the public event. Badge purchases are also still available for Animinitime Moncton on July 17th!

By popular request, we’ve decided to extend the pre-registration time for Animinitime Halifax.

See our registration page for all the details, plus last week’s post about our special showing of Cowboy Bebop the Movie in theatres (tickets on sale now!).
We’re thrilled that so many Maritimers are attending both events and hope that the extended registration period allows for more time to work out your availability and travel plans. Not much longer now and we’re all excited to see the new and returning faces there
