The Anime room will be Room 221

Friday, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Anime Conji Presents: Anime for Hard SF Fans Who Don’t Watch Anime
If all you know about anime is that it involves giant robots and annoyingly cute teenagers, come take another look — there’s a lot of science fiction anime that’s well-written, beautifully directed, and even tries to get the science right. Learn about what’s out there and then watch a selection of the best, including The Wings of Honnêamise, East of Eden, and Time of Eve.

Presented by Richie Edquid of our sister convention Anime Conji.

Saturday, 6:00 – 9:00 PM
Anime Conji Presents: Transhuman Themes in Anime
Cyborgs, genetic engineering, and posthuman intelligences: anime that explores the limitations of humanity, how to overcome them, and what it means to be human at that point. Learn about what’s out there and then watch a selection of the best, including Ghost in the Shell, Guyver, and Ergo Proxy.

Presented by Richie Edquid of our sister convention Anime Conji.
