INTRODUCING THE NEW ANIMAINE AFTER DARK

We've totally redone our famous After Dark block with way more content than ever before.

What's ANIMAINE After Dark? It's like a convention-within-a-convention for attendees age 18 and older. Everything you love in ANIMAINE is in After Dark: the After Dark Game Lounge, After Dark Cosplay, and special After Dark panels and events.

And for the first time you can get an After Dark badge. Just want to see the unusual things we get up to in our 18+ rooms?  $15 gets you a new After Dark Only badge for Friday and Saturday. 

Of course, if you want the whole convention experience just pick up one of our All Access badges which is good for both the all ages and 18+ areas.

SOME PEOPLE
LIKE ANIMAINE.

But the biggest reason to love Maine? ANIMAINE.”
— Voice actress & director Terri Doty
The guys at ANIMAINE could really stand to give a few tips to the larger conventions...
— Nerd Caliber
The guests are more accessible than at any other con I’ve been to.
— Japanator
Sure, there were industry guests and the exclusive showing of Log Horizon, but this con is more than that. It’s about a gathering of friends, both old and new ones that never met
— RT Gomer Productions

EST 2011

ANIMAINE was first held in 2011 when 150 anime fans came together in November for a little shindig.

We're the anime
Afterparty.

We've learned a few things over the years. Our 2012 event was held in August, but fans told us they liked it better when ANIMAINE was the last event of the year.

every seat is the
best in the con.

We're one of the smallest cons in New England, but you wouldn't know that from our fans. You also wouldn't know it from our guest lineup or our events. Just the short lines.

We have hours of 18+ programming - and 21+ programming, thanks to the support of some of Maine's best breweries.

We love our young fans, too! We have a bunch of events that are great for the young and young-at-heart, and our affordable Sunday badges are perfect for attendees under 12 and their families.
