We’re definitely excited for this convention, as it seems to be pulling out all the stops, and is 18+ to boot (so you adults can relax without feeling too old, we’re sure Setsuken wishes he had the luxury XD). We’re definitely going to be sending someone over to bask in the awesomeness, so be sure to swing by http://www.londonanimecon.com/ for details!
