Shinnen Akemashite Omedetô Gozaimasu! Which, for all of you English speakers out there, translates to: HAPPY NEW YEAR! What better way to start off a new 12 months than with an anime convention. Taiyou Con runs in Mesa, Arizona from January 5th-7th and it is PACKED with excitement.

If you would like to attend this event badges are on sale online at: http://www.taiyoucon.com/registration/

Badge sales end the first day of con. Purchasing at the door does increase the price of entry so we suggest buying in advance. We hope to see you there! Fan Girl On!
