Anime Oasis 

Anime convention at Centurylink Arena

It’s like having a Hero Association right here at home.

It’s like having a Hero Association right here at home.

Now in its 15th year, Anime Oasis has grown so much, it not only takes over the Grove Hotel and CenturyLink Arena, but will have some events at the Boise Centre this year, allowing a little more breathing room for the 200 or so happenings. A comprehensive list of rules regarding safety, good hygiene and inclusiveness; and the low cost of entry ensures a welcoming environment for devotees and the uninitiated alike. Attendees can indulge in or learn about all things anime with curated Artist Alley populated by around 30 purveyors of pins, plushies and more; appearances by renowned voice actors; a formal dance; cosplay, trivia and karaoke contests; photo shoots; a J-fashion show; taiko performance; roller skating and so much more that you won't be able to toss a Pokeball down Front Street without catching some anime-inspired fun.
