Thank you and hello everyone. Yours truly, Anime Fusion, is now five years old. The three-year itch is now behind us and we are moving into bigger and better things. The hard working staff, which you too could be a part of, is at it again to bring you the best possible convention of animation from Japan. The new and the old together still after all these years… Anime Fusion 2016: Achievement Unlocked, is all about the recognition and reward of the game. Won't you join us for this years convention? That in itself is an achievement. As is bringing the most friends. Achieve everything this year with Anime Fusion! We look forward to seeing you.
Registration opening soon. Keep up to date by checking back here often. The closer October gets, the more information will be presented.

The Page for Staff Meetings has been updated with all current cycle Convention planning meetings days, times and locations.
Feel free to join us for planning and training of staff this year leading up to the convention. We are always looking for talented individuals to join us in volunteering to make this the best convention and gathering of friends possible. If you are interested in becoming a staff member, our Department Heads would like to speak with you and explore how best you can utilize your skills in the production of our convention. It's not because of the staff that we do this but for the attendees.
Check out the Meetings page for details and directions to the next meeting.

Here after follows the words from the convention chairman after he was revived from his momentary fatigue induced coma.
I would like to thank everyone who attended this year's Anime Fusion: the Future was Then 2015 convention.
(Copy paste from letter in the program guide.)
Thank yous go out to many people; the hotel Ramada Mall of America (for allowing us to hold the convention in their house), the long list of vendors/dealers/artists (they like to give us stuff for stuff), the airlines (for our guests of honors safe travels), the guests of honor and their guests, the city of Bloomington (for not getting angry with us), panelists (for educating us), D.J.s (you know...), staffers (for all the effort and dedication), department heads (for keeping the staffers engaged), our members (you wonderful people you) and this year's charity Cornerstone.
Cornerstone is a vital support organization that has helped hundreds of people and families. We thank them for their representatives who came to share with us information and resources that can directly impact our community. I'm glad to say that we as a whole raised over one thousand dollars for them in the time span of one hour. Imagine if we had the whole year, what amount we could raise. We do. We as a whole of the Anime Fusion convention and Quad Cities Anime, Inc. in the state of Minnesota have one year to ready and produce an even bigger and better convention. Which includes supporting our charity partners with more money and exposure to help as many people in our greater community possible. I look forward to what we can do.
With that, I thank you. Yes. Thank you. The person reading this, directly or indirectly has contributed to the cause of Anime Fusion. Thanks and good seeing you.
