On the 26th of April it is finally time! The Animuc 2019 starts. Only...
The Animuc is a convention which is first and foremost aimed at fans of anime and manga, but also welcomes all other visitors. Since 2009 it takes place annually on the grounds of the Veranstaltungsform Fürstenfeld, a former monastery in the south of Bavaria, Germany, and is voluntarily organized by Animexx e. V.. While two stages provide a rich variety of show acts, the Animuc also offers numerous other highlights including workshops, panels and competitions. A dealers’ room as well as an artists’ alley and exhibition area gives visitors the opportunity to obtain original drawings by German artists on top of the latest anime, manga and merchandise. Also trading card games, the games room and karaoke are quite popular activities. Since 2013 a cosplay ball is held regularly during which guests can hit the dance floor in a festive wardrobe.
For visitors unrelated to anime and manga the many cosplayers on the event grounds are certainly an eye-catcher. The creative hobby has become a main focus of Animuc – it is the first convention in Germany which has invited famous cosplayers from around the world in addition to show acts as guests of honor.
