The convention features Japanese creators of anime and manga, voice actors from anime series, Japanese musical acts, artists, vendors and exhibits, panels, workshops, and gaming. Events all focus on aspects of anime, manga, and Japanese culture. With the popularity of anime and manga growing in the 1990’s and 2000’s, anime conventions have seen positive grown in their attendance; we hope that the first annual BAMCon is no exception. BAMCon will begin it’s annual conventions in May of 2012, and is organized by Media Crash, and the Berkshire Anime Club.
