For many years now Animeleague has brought their biannual anime and gaming convention to the heart of London in February and July. Each year it gets bigger and bigger. Animeleague has announced that they are expanding their convention to include Cardiff and Bristol in 2015.
The Cardiff Anime Con will be August 8-9 at the Cardiff Future Inn, and the Bristol Anime Con will be October 3-4 at the Bristol Future Inn.
