AVCon has just wrapped up over the weekend, with thousands at the Adelaide Convention Centre to attend the annual anime and video games festival.
Run by Team AVCon Inc, it began in 2002 as ‘A/V Connection’ by volunteers from the University of South Australia’s Adelaide Japanese Animation Society and the Adelaide University Video Gamers Association. It was moved to the Adelaide Convention Centre in 2009.
The theme this year was Winter Festival, and thousands of fans and cosplayers attended the event in every anime and video game character you could ever think of.
The international guests at AVCon this year included voice actor Quinton Flynn and Halo voice actors Steve Downes and Jen Taylor. Matt attended the festival for the first time to see what it’s all about. Listen to the story below!
