Manga @ MCM, October 2016

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!

Polished Man

On Saturday we’ll be selling tickets for our Polished Manga Raffle, with the prize draw at 2.30pm on the stage. Tickets are £2, and prizes include Naruto movies on blu-ray, a spooky Halloween anime pack and more! All money raised will be donated to the Polished Man cause. Full prize list and terms & conditions can be found here. Tickets will be available to buy on Saturday morning, from a member of the Manga UK team stationed at a table near the stage.

Our panel this con will take place on our stage at 3pm on the Saturday – we’ll be talking about some of our newest acquisitions and distribution plans and holding a short Q&A – don’t miss it!

If you stop by the stage at 3.30pm on Friday, you’ll catch our In This Corner of the World Mini Showcase where we’ll be showing you our trailers for the film along with a clip! Get an exclusive insight into this highly-anticipated anime masterpiece.

At 2pm on Saturday, we’re putting on a Rooster Teeth Cosplay Showcase with the lovely people at Rooster Teeth UK – whether you’re on Team RWBY, Red, Blue or Lazer we’d love to see what you’ve got! Prizes include a signed Lazer Team poster, Lazer Team on DVD and copies of the new Red vs. Blue: Chorus Trilogy Steelbook. Sign up here to guarantee your slot – be quick though, entries are limited.

Seeing as it’s Halloween weekend, we’ll also be running Manga Trick or Treat! Our social team Darcy and Fraser will be tweeting and Snapchatting their location over the weekend: find them and say trick or treat (or spook them!) to win some exclusive stickers/badges and become an honorary member of #TeamManga.

Our daily anime poll is making a comeback too – drop plastic tokens into our special ballot boxes to vote on spooky questions such as Kyubey or Monokuma? and Rin or Alucard?

For those who can’t make it to the con, we’ll be giving away some of our Comic Con Exclusive Manga & Animatsu Goody Bags, so even if you can’t be there with us make sure to keep an eye out on Twitter and Snapchat! (UK entrants only).
