Official Review

The second Anime Minneapolis convention brought an impressive guest list to Minneapolis anime fans, coupled with a decent number of panels and excellent organization for a small, and relatively cheap, second year convention. The convention gave attendees a ton of free Ramen noodles and soda, only rarely running low. The hotel's AC did not work very well, which turned out badly for the hour-long registration line, but the rest of the convention made up for the wait in quality and content.

About AniMinneapolis 2012

Out of five anime cons in Minneapolis, AniMinneapolis is definitively the second-greatest, which means it's pretty damn good. The first year, which brought together 1200+ attendees, was raved about by attendees for an amazing guest list and strong organization. This second year of AniMinneapolis looks extremely promising for Minnesota anime fans. Last year's convention included over 60 different panels and main events, along with a huge gaming room that gave away free NOS energy drink.
