For those of you who aren't aware of this convention yet:
April 29-May 01
Holiday Inn Westlakehttp://www.shinbokucon.com
Registration: $7.00/day or $15.00/weekend
Hotel Rooms: $89.00/night + 4 free weekend passes
This is Shinboku-con's fifth year and the first year in Westlake, OH. I do know they confirmed Kyle Hebert and Gavin Goszka as guests. This convention is still fairly small, but it grows a lot every year. This year they sold out both Artist Alley and the Dealer's Room.
I've attended every year, and it is a great convention to meet people and hang out with fellow Otakus. Plus, it certainly is one of the cheaper 3-day cons.
I hope to see some of you there!
