Kumoricon 2007 is your opportunity to come and explore the exciting world of Japanese animation, comics, and culture with the people who love it the most. Aptly named kumori, meaning “cloudy”, Kumoricon is the Portland metro area’s one and only anime convention. There you will find a constant stream of panels, workshops, competitions, and performances all while enjoying a friendly, enthusiastic atmosphere. You’ll also see a wide variety of costumes worn by dedicated fans known as cosplayers (short for costume players). There are always video rooms open where you can watch anime, and a gaming room where you can come and play video games, with everything from the classics to the newest releases. And, of course, there’s the dealers’ room where you can buy anything from comic books to kimono.
