What are you doing this weekend? How about you go visit our friends down at @sk_tooncon and play some board games!! Check out their schedule @ http://www.tooncon.ca/gameinfo.html and see if theirs anything that interests you!!
Our friends from @ganbattecon are coming to join us at Queen City AniFest this year!
Ganbatte Convention Inc. is a non-profit organization focused on promoting Japanese media and arts in Saskatoon through various events in the year leading to our annual anime convention in July. We are organized by members of the local Saskatoon anime, comic, and gaming communities and are run by dedicated volunteers.
Their next event is the Ganbatte Halloween Steak Night 2018 on October 26th, 2018. Tickets available at Amazing Stories and Glitch Gifts and Novelties for $25.
Too old to trick or treat, but too young to stay at home?
We’re hosting an all – ages Halloween steak night event at Bridges in Saskatoon at 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Friday, October 26th, 2018.
Costumes aren’t mandatory but they’ll be appreciated nonetheless in an attendee – based – voting costume contest, so get your tickets as soon as you can! Tickets available at Amazing Stories and Glitch Gifts and Novelties for 25$, which includes your meal with us. Tickets also available online for people from out of town. LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE! Option instead of steak is chicken or pasta for vegetarians. Sorry no vegan option. If costumes aren’t for you, we’ll still have door prizes to hand out and silent auction items that you can bid on!
The money from this fundraiser will go to the Ganbatte 2018 Guest fund! We all look forward to seeing you there!
Do you want to know why I love Vic Mignogna? Originally I thought it was because he was a hilarious voice actor that seemed like actually did love his work and the material. Then I went to @ganbattecon a few weeks ago and saw him for a second time. It was the weekend of Sandiego Comic Con. But instead of going to the biggest con if the year, he chose to go to a very small anime convention in the middle of no where. His autographs were also very inexpensive (free if you had something for him to sign). I find this incredible that someone so big, who could have asked for so much more, was so humble and kind. That is why he is my favourite voice actor.
Join us August 3rd 12pm to 5pm at the Farmer's Market in Saskatoon for our very first- free to attend- Kawaii Market.

#ganbattecon was pretty good this year - aside from the cats, but you know... i wore my BL shirts bc i'm trash & i ended up getting these amazing Death Note petit nendoroids & 2 super rare DN keychains 😍
So this weekend I went to my very first anime convention which was Ganbatte Con, and I had a blast! Easily the best two days of my life! I met so many cool people, bought waaay too much merch, played Cards Against Humanity, and went to this lit AF dance! 10/10 would recommend! Here are some of the cool cosplays I saw during the convention, I myself cosplayed as Hidenori Tabata from The Daily Lives of Highschool Boys on the first day, and as Weeaboo Dipper Pines on the second.
Was a bit sad I couldn’t cosplay for the anime convention in my city but maybe next time. Was a super eventful weekend, it’s surreal, I was so hyped all weekend!!😁 I can’t wait to make more memories and make new geeky friends. #neko#cosplay#anime#ganbattecon#memories
I’ve been attending @ganbattecon since it’s first year, I’ve loved this convention since its first started, each year has created so many wonderful memories for me. I got plenty of small things from my con haul, but I’m very pleased with what I got. I was apart of a lovely panel this weekend with @sydmish.cos , @obnoxious_cosplayer , @procrastinationcosplay , @noname.brand_ and @mxl.tifandom I could of never of done it without them and I had so much fun being apart of it. I’m so happy to have all of my friends and new found buddies apart of my life, if anyone ever needs a con mom just HMU, I’m glad to be there for you no matter what ✨ Here’s to Ganbatte 2018 ! Woo !! Another wonderful set of memories to keep, thank you again ✨✨✨ #ganbattecon#ganbattecon2018
