3:30: Swap Meet
Do you ever look at your manga bookshelf and think, “boy, I’m running out of room…” How about that Death Note notebook you just had to get but haven’t touched since your Misa Misa cosplay? Bring all your old “treasures” and swap them with other members of Animania! Think of it like our very own dealer’s room, but feel free to barter and trade. Animania will have a table as well, so you might be able to “negotiate” your way to some raffle prizes…

5:00: Akatsuki no Yona
Episodes 1-3
Princess Yona lives a life of luxury and ease, completely sheltered from the problems of the seemingly peaceful Kingdom of Kouka; however, the sudden murder of the king and betrayal of her beloved cousin Su-won places Yona’s life in mortal peril. Forced to escape only with Son Hak, who is both her childhood friend and bodyguard, the naïve princess soon discovers that Kouka is not the idyllic place she envisioned it to be. Poverty, strife, and corruption run rampant, making reclaiming the throne nothing more than a wishful fantasy given the kingdom’s current state.

Jun is a girl whose words have been sealed away. She was once a very happy girl, but because of a certain thing she said when she was very young, her family was torn apart. One day, the egg fairy appeared in front of her and sealed away her ability to talk in order to stop her from hurting anybody else. Since this traumatic experience, Jun lives in the shadows away from the limelight. But, one day, she is nominated to become an executive member of the “community outreach council.” On top of that, Jun is also appointed to play the main lead in their musical.
