GarasuNoShiCon 2009 is now officially closed!

Well, it's finally over! GarasuNoShiCon, the Toledo area's premiere Japanese anime convention, is finally done, and we've somehow recovered!. We had a great turnout, with about 500 attendees, 10 vendors, and 6 artists making an appearance!

Thanks to all of our staff, volunteers, vendors, artists, and guests for helping make GarasuNoShiCon possible! Also special thanks to Funimation, Media Blasters, and Right Stuf for supporting us, and Owens Community College for hosting the event!

While this incredible, we're looking to do even better next year! We're planning for late May of 2010 once again. If you want more information, are interested in being a vendor or an artist, want to help out, or just have a question, please
contact us at or check out the official GarasuNoShiCon forums.
