We're going to Anime Revolution 2013

After bringing our readers exclusive coverage and having a blast at last year's Anime Revolution, the first one ever, we find ourselves once again attending Anime Revolution 2013. From August 16-18, SUTORAIKUanime will be present at Anime Revolution located in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia, Canada. We're excited to catch up with fellow comrades, meet new people, and all in all bring our readers the best content we possibly can.

Special guests this year include Japanese voice actors Yamaguchi Kappei and Furuya Toru, chief designers of the iconic Japanese lolita fashion brand Angelic Pretty Maki and Asuka, as well as a whole array of North American English dub voice actors to satisfy everyone's needs.

This will be our second year attending Anime Revolution in our hometown of Vancouver. The first year of Anime Revolution in 2012 was certainly a fun experience for us, although there were some glaring issues which desperately needed some ironing out. We hope the issues last year have been improved upon and all the attendees can fully enjoy Anime Revolution!
