It’s that time again! MCM London Comic Con will be taking place on the 28th, 29th and 30th October at the ExCeL and have we got a weekend planned for you!

Our Anime Karaoke was a huge hit back in May, so we’ve brought it back for October con – we’ve upgraded our songlist and now have a whopping 250+ anime theme songs from shows such as Pokemon, Digimon, Naruto and more for you to come around and have a sing-a-long to! Bring your friends, let’s make it an anime sing and dance party! See here for our full list of available songs.

This time, we’re teaming up with the charity Polished Man and painting a nail to raise funds and awareness for the 1 in 5 children who experience sexual and physical abuse around the world. Join in and help up us spread the word! #PolishedManga will be running Saturday 1pm to 2pm & Sunday from 1pm to 2.3opm, and we’ll have nail artists up on the stage ready to give you an awesome anime nail – just donate what you can to the cause!
