Nerdy Night Lounge
Anime St. Louis’ newest and popular night time social event returns for 2017. Kick back with your fellow attendees and take part in a karaoke night ran by Brass Engine Productions. No request is too big or too small for your singing passions. A cash bar will also be on hand for drinks for all ages as we end the night with tunes, friends, and laughs. Be sure to stop in and Don’t Stop Believin’, Let it Go, or even Be Our Guest.
It’s halfway through the convention day, and you’ve just been on the show floor for 4 hours in a bulky set of cosplay armor. You need a break, and we’re happy to provide a space for it! Our Cosplatality Lounge will be a new aspect for Anime St. Louis where cosplayers can take a short rest without having to return to their rooms or homes to unwind. Repair stations and supplies will be on hand for quick fixes, and no photography requests or “across the room without asking shots” will be allowed so you can recover and relax. Sit back and take a breather, you deserve it!
Back in 2009, we bought our first pachinko machine for engaging fans at our convention table. The rest is history, as we now own 19 machines, in various stages of restoration. Pachinko is Japanese pinball, Japan’s favorite pastime. Its been one of their most popular leisure activities for nearly a hundred years.We set up an interactive parlor that works just like it does in Japan (minus the Yakuza, of course), where you buy balls to play with, and redeem your winnings for prizes much like an American arcade. Our machines represent the history and evolution of pachinko over the last 60 years with machines dating from 1951 up to 2010, so we have a machine for everyone! Come try your hand at some great prizes and experience this really fun part of Japanese culture first hand with Pachinko Fever!
Ball Jointed Doll Gathering
We invite any and all doll enthusiasts to join us for our annual meetup at Anime St. Louis. Show off your latest outfits, take part in games and in prizes, and talk shop with other fellow doll owners. The best part is, you don’t have to have a doll to join in the fun! Any and all dolls welcome, and there’s no limit on how many you wish to bring. We look forward to seeing you there!
