Mini A-Kon 7
Mini A-Kon Levels Up with a Big Move!
Mini A-Kon this year will be Feb 22nd from 10am-5pm. We will have all the great things we always have at Mini A-Kon, like gaming, great guests, fun panels, amazing artists, but now we will have even more.
Because of all the great support (and XP) from all our fans, we now are larger and better than before. It will be at the Emily Fowler Central Library and the Denton Civic Center. That’s right we need a convention hall and a library to bring you all the crazy stuff for Mini A-Kon this time. We will be adding things like a full dealers room, more panels, more cosplay, and we’re working on adding stuff until the day of.
And the best thing is, it’s still free to go. The Denton Public Library, The City Of Denton, and the folks at A-Kon are doing this for you, the fans. It’s the fans that make A-Kon great, so this is just one of the ways we like to say thank you.

Felecia loves character work almost as much as she loves eating too much pizza and taking naps. Her recent work includes Coco in “Fairy Tail”, Mero in “Sankarea”, Sakura in “Evangelion 3.0″, and Raynare/Yuma in “High School DXD”.

Frog,” Szilard Quates in “Baccano,” Tanaka in “Black Butler,” Basque Gran in “Full Metal Alchemist,” Conrad in “Romeo x Juliet” (which he also co-directed), Captain Ginyu in “Dragon Ball Z Kai,” and diminutive guild master Makarov in “Fairy Tail.” Currently he can be heard as the Narrator on the new anime series, “Space Dandy,” which runs Saturday nights on the Toonami block of Adult Swim (Cartoon Network).
