Anime Boston

What: Anime and costumes

When: Annually. Next is April 2-4, 2010.

Where: Hynes Convention Center in Boston

Cost: $30-$50

What we can do:

  • Leave Ubunchu manga. Print them out and attach CDs. Last time we did this, 100 copies went in a few hours. This requires someone to attend and drop them off for us (it costs money for them to place them for us).
  • Get a table. This would likely require money. We could demo Ubuntu, give out manga and CDs.
