This awe-inspiring event returns to the Crowne Plaza Albuquerque from March 15–17, 2024.

Anime New Mexico isn’t just an event — it’s a journey into the heart of anime fandom, offering a multitude of different experiences for enthusiasts of all ages. Drink in captivating panels and electrifying performances at this one-of-a-kind convention.

 

Meet Your Favorite Voice Actors and Performers

Be prepared to see some of the biggest names in English voice acting, including the stars of popular series like Chainsaw Man, My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer, and more. Rub shoulders. Mingle with industry icons such as Ryan Colt Levy, Lindsay Seidel, Clifford Chapin, and Kristen McQuire, who will grace the convention with their presence.

 

A Weekend Packed with Excitement

Take advantage of the chance to immerse yourself in the vibrant energy of Anime New Mexico as you explore the bustling space filled with merchandise, cosplay, and interactive experiences. Tickets for the weekend are $50 and include access to dozens of parties, concerts, and programming events from Friday at 3 p.m. until Sunday at 5 p.m. 

Fandom Events owner Josh Wilson says a common misconception about hotel anime conventions is they are similar to comic cons, which are “come-and-go events,” which is not at all the model for this weekend. “Anime New Mexico is built around grabbing a discounted room at The Crowne Plaza and staying all weekend,” Josh explains. “This truly is a vacation retreat for fans of cosplay, manga, and anime. Coming only for an hour or two would be a travesty since there is so much to do over the weekend.” 

 

An Immersive Anime Experience

As you plan your trip to indulge in a weekend retreat filled with cosplay, manga, and anime, take advantage of discounted room rates at the Crowne Plaza Albuquerque. From dawn till dusk and beyond, there’s never a dull moment at this anime extravaganza.

When asked what is there to do for three days, Josh says, “From 10 in the morning until 2 in the morning the next night, there is so much to do — shopping, cosplay, attending panels and performances, meeting guest voice actors and cosplay guests, attending an authentic Japanese maid cafe and escape room, grabbing a NERF gun and fighting your way through a zombie dungeon, grabbing a foam sword and fighting in a Live-Action Roleplaying tournament, and catching live concerts, performances, karaoke parties, and an anime rave. If that’s not enough, the hotel provides anime-themed drinks based on the celebrity guest characters during evening hours.”
