Mini Iwai

Are you interested in visiting Anime Iwai but worry that you are not physically capable of withstanding three entire days of mind-blowing awesomeness? Then you’re in luck - we are holding a one day convention, Mini Iwai, to give everyone a taste of what’s coming this November.

Remember: anyone who purchases a weekend pass to Anime Iwai also receives a free pass to Mini Iwai - that’s four days of anime glory for the price of three and a very good reason to get a weekend pass.

Mini Iwai will be held at the same location as Anime Iwai on Sunday, June 18th from 12 PM to 8 PM.

Now Bite Sized!
