The Madman Anime Festival is an annual anime convention held in Melbourne, Australia. And the musical guests for this year are JAM Project and May’n. The convention has a huge range of merchandise for sale at the Madman Anime Festival store, including anime-related products, collectable trading cards, plush toys, figurines and many other anime-related products.

Anime is a popular genre of animation in Japan. It’s a unique form of entertainment where anime stories are about Japanese culture. Anime is often depicted like a Japanese Manga but sometimes it involves fantasy. Anime also involves a large number of other aspects. One of the most important aspects of anime is its character designs.

Madman Anime Festival, one of the largest anime conventions in Australia, is back in December! There’s a range of fun anime events at Madman, including the Anime Music Video competition, cosplay competition, art auction, and more! There will be cosplay performances, panels, and workshops all weekend long, so make sure to stop by the Animelab Arena to pick up some amazing anime memorabilia including authentic anime merchandise, Nendoroid figures and more!

The program for the Madman Anime Festival, which will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from September 3 to 4, is now available.

If you’re an Otaku, Gaijin, or just Kawaii, here is the place for you. Take a peek at the Madman Anime Festival’s schedule.

Tim Anderson, Madman Entertainment’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, stated in a statement, “Madman was established because we loved anime and wanted to share it with people in Australia.”

“This year marks our twentieth anniversary, and we couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate the occasion than by putting on an incredible event that will bring Australian fans even closer to the genre we all love. We’re working hard with Madman’s many partners and connections to make this an unforgettable event!”

The One-Punch Man panel, Sword Art Online live sketching, Yuko Miyamura (Asuka Langley from Neon Genesis Evangelion), and Tiffany Grant are among the highlights (Nojiko in One Piece , Martel in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood ).

There will be some gaming on exhibit, thanks to Bandai Namco’s agreement to show titles from Square Enix and NIS America.
