It’s where Australian manga and anime fans, artists and creators get together to share their passion for the artforms. There’s a whole bunch of art-related contests, a fanfic comp, and cosplay exhibitions to enter.

Gamers are well catered for with tournaments running across a host of games, including Street Fighter IV, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Rock Band. Ubisoft will also have their own section showcasing playable version of Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash Up.

There’s even a Maid Cafe (see pic).

It’s at the Roundhouse at the University of New South Wales. Doors open 10am Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $20 and $18 each day.

Oh, and don’t forgt to send your cosplay pics to us!
