Ogiue Maniax at Otakon 2016, August 12-14

It’s time for another year at the east coast’s largest anime convention! It’ll be Otakon’s final year in Baltimore for the foreseeable future, so I’m hoping to make it a memorable one.

I’ve also got a couple of panels this year, and I hope that you can attend.

Panel Room 5

“Such Dog. Much Anime. Wow.”

It’s a panel celebrating dogs in anime! See your favorites, and some you’ve probably never even heard of! My co-presenter on this panel will be Kate from the Reverse Thieves.

Panel Room 1

“Greater Uglier Manga.” [18+]

The sequel to last year’s “Great Ugly Manga” panel. Once again, my co-presenter and I will be showing manga that’s great not in spite of how ugly they are, but because of how ugly they are. As a warning, this year’s iteration is 18+, but keep in mind that this is not just some pornography/hentai panel. Most of the content will still be all-ages.

See you there!

Come to Otakon 2015, See Great Ugly Manga!

Ogiue Maniax is returning to Otakon in Baltimore this year to cover the biggest anime convention on the east coast and to have some fun. My schedule isn’t set it stone, so there’s probably not much point in saying where I maybe might sort of be, but there’s one place you’ll definitely be able to find me:

GREAT UGLY MANGA

Sunday July 26

10:15-11:15am, Panel 3

Some manga are praised for how gorgeous they look, while others are beloved in spite of their drawings, but what about those manga that are made BETTER by the awfulness of their artwork? Join Carl from the Ogiue Maniax blog and Ed Chavez as we look at some of the best and most entertaining ugly manga out there, and see why there’s no irony when we say that these manga are great.
