Gaming Hall

Please check out the Gaming page for information about the 24-hour Gaming Hall, Late Night Game Room, and direct links to the Arcade, eGaming (Console/PC), and Tabletop webpages.


Manga Lounge

The Manga Lounge is a great place to sit, kick back, and relax after walking through the Dealer’s Hall or while waiting for a panel. Come on, stop by, say hi, and read some manga!

Manga is grouped by genre to help enhance your reading experience. If you feel like discovering a new action/adventure, horror, or other manga genres, you will be able to browse whatever might interest you. You will also see a small but growing children’s section in the lounge, as well as the return of the Exchange Area. The Exchange Area will allow you to trade your old manga for one of the duplicates from our own library. It’s the perfect way to downsize or make room on your bookshelves. Feel free to bring your manga by to exchange or donate, or contact us for more information.


Stage Zero

In a land clogged with attendees, artists, dealers, and cosplayers, where does one turn for comfort, relief, and entertainment? Stage Zero, of course! Stage Zero is located smack dab in the middle of the Concourse for your temporary entertainment needs. Watch AMVs, performances, or listen to fantastic music while you plan on which panel to attend. Have a seat, watch the wackiness, or participate in games for prizes while you wait for friends to come back from the bathroom. Stage Zero will be your information nerve center to the rest of the convention by way of the talented staff. So don’t be afraid to take a load off your feet for a while and absorb the amazing that is Stage Zero!

Stage Zero will be celebrating its 13th year at FanimeCon 2018, and we hope that you will come and join us.

More information regarding Stage Zero will be coming soon!
