What is Anime St. Louis?

Anime St. Louis is an anime convention created for and by St. Louis area anime fans. After Kunicon went under, St. Louis fans were left without a hometown convention. Alisha Bingham, president of the Maryville Anime Club decided to change that. She and her club created Anime St. Louis, a one-day convention that took place on the Maryville University campus on April 8, 2006.

The convention was even more of a success than the Maryville Anime Club had expected, and requests poured in for a three-day convention. Alisha decided to to team up with Katrina Johnson, president of the Webster University Anime Society, who had run panels at Anime St. Louis in 2006. She and Alisha talked about the possibility of having a three-day convention in conjunction with ShowMe Con, a seasoned three-day sci-fi con. ShowMe Con agreed to partner with Anime St. Louis in 2007 to produce a two-for-the-price-of-one three-day convention. Thus, the Anime St. Louis/ShowMe Con project was born.

Alisha, Katrina, Mikhail, and the ShowMe Con staff have been working most of the summer on planning an awesome convention for 2007!

^-^ Hope to see you all there!
