Longest running Anime & Japanese Culture convention in the UK
For Fans by Fans
Ahoy matey! We're Minami Con, a family friendly anime and Japanese culture convention. Our founders started the con to promote the cuter side of anime at a time when only more adult themed anime was available in the county. Over the years, the convention grew to also include highlighting various aspects of Japanese culture.
Each year, we tend to centre the convention around a genre/theme. We are finally going Nautical for the next Minami Con, aptly placed for our Southampton location! Island life, pirates, mermaids, characters dressed as ships - think Kantai Collection!
What started as a con with 4 video rooms showing anime, a pub quiz, masquerade, karaoke, artist alley, dealer's room and a games room has developed to be more events focused where we keep padding out our schedule with a huge range of panels, workshops, games, competitions and highlight events through the efforts of our wonderful volunteers.
