READER'S PICK
BEST NERD GATHERING

ANIME BOSTON

Boston has a handful of big geeky blow-outs like NE Comic Con and PAX East, but none of these seems to take over our city quite like ANIME BOSTON — likely because its attendees wear their best cosplay finery. The con's known for its Masquerade and costume contest, so don't be surprised if you see Sephiroth and Sailor Moon gallivanting down Newbury Street together, followed perhaps by a swarm of Naruto ninjas. Not that the attendees need to leave the con, since the schedule's packed with industry panels, game shows, contests, and dances, plus a sprawling dealer's room full of goodies for Japanophiles and casual anime fans alike.
